UC Berkeley Professor Objects to Students Demonstrating Against Anti-Semitism

Yesterday, I posted an article about swastikas being discovered on the UC Berserkley campus last week and a resultant student demonstration protesting against anti-Semitism. Who could object to that?

Meet Professor Andrew Gutierrez

(hat tip to an anonymous commenter for sending me the link to this video)

What people like Gutierrez (an anti-Israel professor and Israel divestment petition signer) don't get is that there is a rise in anti-Semitism which should be opposed by everyone no matter where one stands on the Israel-Palestinian issue. So a group of students protest against swastikas on campus and this guy comes out to heckle them while they are speaking?

Well, what can you expect?

And a special salute to Fatima at Arab Lesbians Against Hate, which I have linked to this site.

This student blog does a nice job of chronicling anti-Semitism at the UC Berkeley campus

What does this professor teach?

I am afraid to ask.

He teaches in some sort of environmental science dept. I don't recall the exact name.

Having grown up and entered adulthood shortly before and after 1970, I have little respect for would-be amateur revolutionaries who settled for being well paid college professors, who in many cases (not all) don't know much but are skilled at spouting unsubstantiated opinion.

However, on this video, I can barely hear Professor Gutierez, although his mouth opens often. I do hear someone off camera with a bullhorn, saying b.s. every few sentences, in the midst of an incoherent tirade. So, why should we all be paying attention to their petty shouting matches anyway?

It is newsworthy because a group of mostly students was protesting hate and being heckled by a professor. The professor and his wife are anti-Israel activists.
