    What's old is new again (anti-Jewish movement)

    In such a "progressive" place like Berkeley...

    Yeah, it starts with "anti-Zionism" but just like the Nazis they like to call everyone else, that's where it starts. "Oh, it's just not allowing them to speak at our gatherings..."

    https://jewishjournal.com/commentary...sh-free-zones/

    Nine different law student groups at the University of California at Berkeley’s School of Law, my own alma mater, have begun this new academic year by amending bylaws to ensure that they will never invite any speakers that support Israel or Zionism. And these are not groups that represent only a small percentage of the student population. They include Women of Berkeley Law, Asian Pacific American Law Students Association, Middle Eastern and North African Law Students Association, Law Students of African Descent and the Queer Caucus. Berkeley Law’s Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, a progressive Zionist, has observed that he himself would be banned under this standard, as would 90% of his Jewish students.
    This sounds like a serious violation of civil rights that our Justice Department should take issue with immediately even before the campus administration lowered the hammer on the groups.

    Right?

    Right...?

    The tolerance is astounding, isn't it?

    Proving that Fascism/"Democratic Socialism"/Communism are the same Evil, just by another name:

    Look at Body Count by Country/Ideology:

    Germany/Nazi's: 11M
    China/Under Mao: 30-40M
    Russia/Under Stalin: 20M (WWll Deaths added-40M)
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    This may ruffle feathers but, things are tough all over.
    There are multitudes of other people who get canceled or disinvited or unpersoned or whatever Crucible du Jour eggheads have cooked up.

    Israel has some problems and NO they aren’t “God’s chosen people”. And if they were then I would certainly get a new god because that dog won’t hunt. It’s like when I would go into a black home on a domestic and seeing a portrait of white Jesus.

    Israel is in fact a corrupt and horrible place government wise and whatever tree of liberty they have could do with some watering. You have even had an IDF soldier (whom I certainly respect) tell you that.

    Sometimes pushback is a good thing. People are entitled to their religion and their shot at life but either we outrage for everyone or we outrage for no one.

    Let’s keep it real, nobody woke up one day and said “let’s just pick on Jews for no reason”.

    Zero surprise. Looney leftists make EVERYTHING about Race/Religion/Sex. Sane people just go about their lives.

    Bullshit. If it was Islam instead of Judaism, there would be a full blown civil rights investigation.

    Christian conservatives get cancelled / protests / not allowed to speak to the student body at many of the liberal universities as well...the tolerant left.

    Everything woke turns to crap.

    Intolerance for any view not your own is a thing far left or right. Christian conservatives not exactly known for their tolerance. That being said, no one does the hypocrisy / double standard gig like progressive lib left, and that's what bothers me most personally.

    I have been baffled by this anti free speech movement coming out of colleges in recent years. Especially in a place like Berkeley which once had a pro free speech movement. I was taught that although you may not like what your opponent has to say, you still fight for their right to say it. Because if they can be censored, then you can also be censored, and the free exchange of ideas is essential to a free society. The kids today really can't handle anyone challenging their ideas.

    I do not think they were ever truly pro free speech. I think they have always been pro their speech, and hid that intention under a so called love of the first amendment. I still recall Tipper Gore trying to ban the music I listened to back then, and Dee Snider pointing that they are all fools. Later on it was Lieberman attempting to do the same to video games. The left always has a hard on for censorship. I admit that the moral majority folks are also into it, and no friends of mine either, but they were not leading that charge.
