#1216 5/12/24 – The Laddie Doth Protest Too Much Methinks

WHILE YOU STAND ON ONE LEG:  The college kids’ violent protests aren’t aimed at securing aid for civilians in Gaza, or are even eruptions of just anti-Zionism and antisemitism, but at core of anti-Americanism and anarchy.  But anti-Zionism and antisemitism within them are real, and we have to respond.  Fortunately, the protesting college kids and their enablers have gone way out of their way to disrupt and annoy the American public, and that may help us in responding.

The Laddie Doth Protest Too Much Methinks

If there’s a silver lining to the rampages roiling college campuses across America, and it seems much of the planet Earth, it’s that the kids, and their enablers, don’t limit their riotous rage’s range to the limited scope of their antisemitism-source license – protesting Jews’ alleged inhumanity to allegedly innocent civilians caught up in “Israelis” (i.e., Jews’) unacceptable avaricious apartheid colonial grasping of territorial control of the whole Middle East if not the Whole World.  Some rational folks will see the kids, and not us kikes (to use one of their unkind names for us), as the ones engaged in overreach.

So What Are “the Protests” Really About?

Let’s look at the same words in some excerpts from recent internet articles at two levels, both pushing the protestors’ cause beyond what at first seems:

First, not as caring for Gaza civilians caught, deservedly or not, between Israel and Hamas, but as demanding destruction of Israel and extermination (or at least “Back-to-Poland”) of Jews; and

Second, not as just anti-Israel and anti-Jew, but as anti-American and anarchy-breeding at core.

Level 1: Not About “Poor Innocent Suffering Gazans,” but About Ending Israel and Jews

Jewish Voice, Thursday, 5/9/24, Campus Intifadas are Not Anti-War Protests:

“These privileged militants – both students and faculty – bully Jewish students, clash with cops, vandalize school property, replace campus Stars-and-Stripes with Palestinian flags, and chant antisemitic slogans including the genocidal call for ‘Palestine’ to be free ‘from the river to the sea.’’ [emphasis added]

Pamela Geller, thegellerreport.com, Tuesday, 5/7/24, Jew-Hating Terrorists Burn American Flags at Met Gala, War Memorials, Etc.:

“Nothing says ‘free Palestine’ like desecrating a World War I memorial and burning an American flag in front of it.  It’s almost as if these sick freaks are just in it for the chaos and don’t care about whether anything they do is effective or not.  The anarchy as the point. The ‘cause’ changes depending on the month, but the destruction of the system remains the same.”  [emphasis added]

ABC7 Chicago, Saturday, 5/11/24, UNC Palestine Protest After Arrests Pro-Palestinian US Flag:

“Chapel Hill, N.C. – Pro-Palestinian protester removed the American flag from UNC’s quad on Tuesday afternoon and replaced it with the Palestinian one in what was the latest disruptive incident on campus.”  [emphasis added]

Livemint, 4/29/24, Anti-Israel Protesters Replace US Flag with Palestinian Flag at Harvard University:

Anti-Israel protesters at Harvard University raised the Palestinian flag at the Ivy League School in a spot reserved for the American flag amid the ongoing campus demonstrations in the United States, The New York Post reported.” [emphasis added]

USA Today, 5/1/24, These Anti-American College Protests Will Only Help Trump Win the Election:

“What began as pro-Palestinian pleas for a cease-fire or for Israel to stop defending itself after enduring a brutal attack from Hamas on Oct. 7 has now escalated into violence, occupying or damaging university property, antisemitic tirades and anti-American gestures.  This is happening on campuses nationwide, from UCLA and the University of Texas to Columbia University and the University of North Carolina.” [emphasis added]

Heritage Foundation, Friday, 5/10/24, It’s Time To Quash Campus Radicalism:

“At several universities, protesters tore down the American flag and replaced it with the Palestinian flag.  After the NYPD restored Old Glory to its rightful place at City College, Mayor Eric Adams properly called it ‘despicable’ that colleges let campus radicals get away with it.”  [emphasis added]

Level 2: Not Just About Israel and Jews, but Anti-American and Spreading Chaos

Now let’s look at these same quotes with different words emphasized.

Jewish Voice, Thursday, 5/9/24, Campus Intifadas are Not Anti-War Protests:

“These privileged militants – both students and faculty – bully Jewish students, clash with cops, vandalize school property, replace campus Stars-and-Stripes with Palestinian flags, and chant antisemitic slogans including the genocidal call for ‘Palestine’ to be free ‘from the river to the sea.’’ [emphasis changed]

So What Do We Conclude From This?

I think two things.  We have to help Americans see that what’s occurring on our country’s college campuses is not wholesomely seeking sending of humanitarian aid to Port Dearborn for Gaza civilians caught in a war [Gazans don’t like Hamas very much more than we do, but note that the college kids side with Hamas and not with Gaza civilians] or even calls just for eliminating Israel and Jews, but anti-Americanism and anarchy that’s a threat by our country’s college-graduating generation to our country’s democracy and tranquility.

And, second, we ourselves have to see that the mechanism employed by these college creeps and their enablers IS antisemitism approaching Naziism in intensity and, whether meant on the merits or seized upon as a vehicle, is a direct and personal attack upon us, all of us, even anti-Zionists of the Mosaic persuasion.

And What Do We Do About It?

I remember back when Mexico voted for the UN’s “Zionism Is Racism” resolution and the Bnai Brith, in a moment of self-respect by our people, cancelled its convention in Mexico.  Can we do less in the face of what New York Mayor Adams, in one of these internet articles quoted above, properly called “despicable” – colleges letting campus radicals get away with rampant disparagement and intimidation of Jews’ homeland and peoplehood?
