Pro-Palestinian students at a Massachusetts university keep trying to force the university to divest from companies supporting Israel and they keep failing, according to The Algemeiner. This latest attempt also targeted US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Northeastern University’s student government voted 47 to 7 against holding a referendum to boycott Hewlett-Packard. It’s the third time in nearly as many years that such a petition has failed. But why would they have such a referendum? Well, the school’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter says HP “provides technology that plays a central role in the Israeli occupation of Palestine, which is illegal according to the UN, as well as the mass deportation of immigrants from the US by [ICE].”
First of all, the UN declaring something illegal is like me telling you you can only browse YouTube for My Little Pony videos — we’d both love to do that but neither of us have the legal authority to do so. And “the mass deportation of immigrants?” Well, what would the left be without a bit of lying by omission? It used to be illegal immigrants, then it was undocumented, now I guess the criminals are just like any ordinary immigrants.
Prof ‘Wouldn’t Mind’ Seeing Trump Dead
At a recent public lecture, Professor Barry Bluestone of Northeastern University said he “wouldn’t mind” seeing Trump dead, reported Campus Reform.
“This president that we have is really out of control…sometimes I want to just see him impeached,” said Bluestone at the public event. “Other times, quite honestly—I hope there are no FBI agents here—I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead.”
There’s always the most spectacular irony in these stories so listen to this: Bluestone incited violence against the president at a lecture entitled “The Rule of Law in a Time of Polarization.”
Right after Bluestone said he wouldn’t mind seeing Trump dead, a left-wing journalist also at the lecture cut in to this most academic remark, saying “of natural causes.” “Of natural causes,” Bluestone repeated, “thank you, thank you.” The professor then jokingly said “FBI,” pointing at the journalist, suggesting agents should listen to the guy’s correction.
But here’s another thing: the esteemed scholar called Trump a “plutocratic fascist” and said he and his staff have referenced Mexicans and Muslims in ways similar to how Hitler referenced Jews. Surely the learned academic knows that recklessly comparing someone to Hitler isn’t the best way to dissuade others from using violence against them.
The university said “Professor Bluestone’s comments do not reflect the views of Northeastern University. The university and its leaders steadfastly oppose violence in all its forms….While faculty members are free to express controversial opinions, the university cannot provide a public platform for comments that could be construed to condone violence. As a result, we have decided to take down the video of this event.”
