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 In Washington Post: ‘Why Can’t We Hate Men?’
Northeastern University professor Suzanna Danuta Walters apparently convinced The Washington Post to publish an op-ed entitled “Why can’t we hate men?”
Can you imagine this column being written about any other “non-privileged” group? And don’t get your hopes up thinking that maybe the headline means she’s going to answer why it’s not -okay to hate men, oh no, Suzanna seems to have exhausted her own logic and morality and is asking YOU the question. She writes:
“Men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from, start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only.”
So, the woman-only part aside for a second, something tells me she doesn’t mean second-wave feminists here. Something tells me she wants more of the third-wave feminists who are very eager to mandate equality of outcome in high-paying jobs, but when it comes to plumbing, coal-mining, garbage collecting, it’s perfectly fine for men to dominate.
“Don’t run for office. Don’t be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. We got this. And please know that your crocodile tears won’t be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy. It is long past time to play hard for Team Feminism. And win.”
Oh that’s definitely winning if winning is the subjugation of half of the population to pay for the perceived crimes of their ancestors. Tell me, Suzanna, have you paid your reparations for slavery yet?
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.”
