UCLA Suffers Another Incident of Anti-Semitism

Hat tip Daily Bruin

"YOU people invades our space and used your bogus gods to justify taking land that was never yours. I don’t know how that’s different from what’s happening in Palestine — you come into their land, crying persecution and diminished numbers, and instead of returning to your own homes in Poland, Germany and Russia, your people chose to invade another culture’s homeland, invoking your bulls–t sacred pacts with your gods and massacring an entire culture unless they bend to your will. GTFOH with all your Zionist bulls–t. Crazy ass f–king troglodyte albino monsters of cultural destruction."

As the University of California Regents spend months trying to come up with a statement of principles on intolerance that will specifically address the biggest problem they have-anti-Semitism, UCLA was hit with yet another example of Jew hatred. Adding a comment to a Facebook posting by a Zionist alumni, a current student unleashed a tirade of anti-Jewish (anti-Jewish, not just anti-Zionist) insults. The incident has hit the Daily Bruin and caused the vice chancellor of student affairs, Janina Montero to issue a statement.

In the below Daily Bruin article, a Jewish student writes an eloquent piece.

The university has also announced that there will be no disciplinary action against the student due to freedom of speech considerations.

True enough. The First Amendment has protected my right to say and write controversial things that offend some though I don't think I have written anything as offensive as the last line of that quote above. It does seem to me, however, that the double standard is in play here. Remember the white knucklehead students at the University of Oklahoma who were singing n-word songs on a bus last March? Expelled. Remember the UC San Diego library noose incident in 2010? The student who came forward and admitted leaving the noose- with an innocent explanation was suspended.

Yet who was disciplined in 2008 when the UC Irvine Muslim Student Union displayed this poster on their mock apartheid wall during a week-long bash-Israel fest? Nobody.

Whether they care to admit it or not, the University of California knows perfectly well the anti-Semitic problem they have on our campuses. They also know who is responsible for it.

Which goes a long way to explaining why they don't do anything about it. It all depends on whose ox is being gored and who is doing the goring.

This statement is so off the wall I consider the expostulation of an ignorant fool, not the calculated political statement of an exponent for an ideology.

First, this is one of the most hateful Anti-Semitic Facebook posts that I have read. The University must do more than provide a verbal warning, as this anti- Semite works in the Medical facility of UCLA. What Jewish patient would want this person as a care provider. Two, if this was a rant directed to a Muslim student, Loretta Lynch would instantly remove that person's First Amendment rights and place he or she in some American gulag, for hate speech against a Muslim. Not so for Jewish Americans.

Care provider? Is there anything about this person being in training to be a care provider? What kind? This rant has more in common with a psychotic person on the street who should have been in a secured care facility except we've closed all of those down, than a calculated political polemic. Someone pat the poor dear on the head and give them a big spoonfull of benadryl. That's the level of response this expostulation is worthy of.
