A pro-Palestinian student group hosted an event Saturday comparing Palestinian liberation to black American liberation, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation. That’s “intersectionality” for you — let’s erase and collapse context, history, and all of that nonsense because all we need is oppressor and oppressed. But perhaps a bit more concerning is that the students at this event will apparently read something written by an officer of a designated terrorist group.
Temple University’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter looks like a pretty diverse bunch. And I know you’re thinking that diversity is typically code for anti-white these days but it looks like these students also support diversity of ideas or rather, one specific idea to be exact: terrorism.
You see, Temple’s SJP chapter hosted an event called “Palestine & Black America: A Strategy for Liberation” and I guess I’m not sure what the message is behind that title. You want a separate Palestinian state…does that mean you also want a black American ethnostate? Sounds pretty racist to me. Around 50 individuals apparently attended and read from Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton, as well as Ahmad Sa’adat, who’s the secretary general for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine or PFLP.
You know, the same PFLP that the US lists as a terrorist group. The same PFLP that murdered more than 100 individuals, including children, with suicide bombers during the Second Intifada. The same PFLP that killed five Jewish synagogue worshipers and a police officer in 2014. And the same PFLP that has been doing these things for a little while now, slaughtering over two dozen people at an airport in 1972.
Wew lad, talk about bad optics.
