Follow-up on University of Tennessee Anti-Semitism Controversy

In response to the reports from Canary Mission and Algemeiner detailing incidents of anti-Semitism at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, the university has criticized the report and stated that several of the students involved were no longer students at UTK and, by the way, were exercising their free speech rights. The below report from Algemeiner offers further details from Canary Mission on the incidents which indicate that the problems are still current.

While it is true that some of these incidents go back five or so years, the university is vague, if not misleading, on how many of these students are still enrolled at UTK.

Maybe we should draw some comparisons between the denials of UTK and past examples like UC San Diego and the University of Missouri whose campuses were turned upside down over allegations of anti-black racism in the past few years.
