The mask is coming off.
We bomb ISIS, yet we fund CUNY.
The City University of New York has been transformed from a public university that let poor kids get a good education and succeed. They boast about how many Nobel laureates they’ve produced, but those days are behind them. Instead, CUNY has become an antisemitic terrorist hellhole where over 80 faculty members are willing to sign on to a statement saying that the murder of elderly women and children, the rape of women and the kidnapping of children is a “military operation”.
The petition begins with…
“We, the undersigned CUNY staff and faculty, strongly object to Chancellor Félix Matos Rodríguez’s efforts to censure expressions of solidarity with the Palestinian people. In advance of anti-apartheid rallies planned on multiple campuses, the Chancellor claimed that the organizers would ‘glorify Saturday’s [Oct. 7] violence and celebrate the killings, injuries and capture of innocent people.’ This baseless, prejudicial statement reproduces the racist, Islamophobic rhetoric that has accompanied the drumbeat for war.”
And then the petition proves that the chancellor was right as it argues that…
“there is also no equivalence between the October 7 military operation by Hamas and the subsequent military attack by the Israeli state, and certainly no equivalence to the systemic and the violence of Israeli settler colonialism.”
A military operation aimed at massacring and kidnapping civilians.
Other signatories include Jonathan Buchsbaum, a media studies professor and author of “Cinema and the Sandinistas: Filmmaking in Revolutionary Nicaragua” (I believe he was the protagonist of a Charlie Kaufman novel), Anna Stetsenko, a “developmental psychologist” from Russia, and Ellen Dichner, the Chief Counsel to the Chairman of the National Labor Relations Board under the Obama administration.
Meanwhile, Northwestern University’s Asian American Studies Programs issued an open letter condemning the “visible Islamophobia expressed in pro-Israel posters on NU’s campus falsely claiming that ‘Hamas is ISIS’” and described Hamas as a “political group”.
These are just a few examples of the mask coming off academia and the ugly vileness being revealed.
The enemies of civilization are showing themselves for who they are. The crimes they’re defending are indefensible, but from the gulags to Pol Pot to the suicide bombs, they were always indefensible.
