THREE WEASELS

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 8, 2023

    IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT ABOUT THE STATE OF TODAY’S ACADEMIA – AND WHY WOULD YOU BE – CONSIDER THE TESTIMONY OF THREE PROMINENT UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS BEFORE A HOUSE COMMITTEE THIS WEEK.

    REPUBLICAN CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK OF NEW YORK ASKED A SIMPLE QUESTION. IN LIGHT OF  ANTISEMETIC DEMONSTRATIONS ON THEIR CAMPUSES, DO THOSE CALLING FOR THE GENOCIDE OF JEWS VIOLATE THEIR SCHOOL’S CODE OF CONDUCT? HARVARD PRESIDENT CLAUDINE GAY SAID IT DEPENDED ON “CONTEXT.” LIZ MAGILL, PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA AND SALLY KORBLUTH, MIT PRESIDENT, USED SIMILAR WEASEL WORDS AND DIDN’T ANSWER THE QUESTION.

    WHAT CONTEXT IS THERE THAT SAYS IT’S OK TO KILL JEWS? WHEN SOME WEALTHY DONORS ANNOUNCED THEY WOULD NO LONGER CONTRIBUTE TO THE SCHOOLS AND EVEN MANY DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS DENOUNCED THEIR ANSWERS, ALL THREE ISSUED STATEMENTS BEATING A HASTY RETREAT FROM THEIR REMARKS. THERE IS SO MUCH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS EVERYWHERE THESE DAYS THAT MANY PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY FEAR BEING DENOUNCED BY THE TINIEST OF MINORITIES – FROM THE TRANSGENDER CROWD — TO THOSE WHO WANT TO KILL JEWS AND ELIMINATE ISRAEL.

    SHAME DOESN’T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THEIR POSITIONS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
