Intersectionality in action! Forget free speech. Forget open debate. All the Left wants is a one-sided monologue.
Also, the next time you read about s spike in anti-Semitic activity in the US, usually citing the ADL, make sure you check out the actual report. What you’ll find is that the spike is being driven by anti-Semitic actions on our college campuses. As I’ve been pointing out for years, intersectionality means that the Left, in its effort to work with Islamic groups as fellow victims, will inevitably embrace antisemitism along the way. In the not-to-distant-future, if you want to be a Progressive, you’re going to have to embrace antisemitism.
Pro-Palestine protesters disrupted a College Republicans event at the University of California, Irvine Thursday, using a megaphone to drown out five members of the Israeli Defense Forces.
Roughly one hour into the event, a group of about 10 anti-Zionists entered the room, causing the IDF soldiers to pause their speech until the protesters had taken their seats.
“Where were we?” asked one of the IDF soldiers. “I believe you were talking about how you murder kids,” responded one of the protesters who had just entered the room, and immediately the chants began: “IDF what do you say, how many kids have you killed today?,” “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” and “All the walls have got to go, from Palestine to Mexico.”
Campus police began to eject the disruptors one by one, but they simply gathered right outside the room’s doors, chanting “Long live the Intifada” until the event was over.
Unable to be heard over the chanting, the IDF soldiers held up a sign that said, “Do you want to talk or do you want to shout?”
