Stefanik Ivy Presidentd

Anonymous


So I watched this video.

Stefanik seems to be saying that calling for intafadah is advocating genocide, and this challenged the university presidents to take the position that calls for antifadah are not free speech, or shouldn’t be considered free speech, on campus.

Did I understand it correctly?

The presidents answered these questions inelegantly.

Maybe Stafanik will be free to criticize the domestic US terrorists?

Op here, I guess my question is with the premise- is antifadah genocide?

I understand it means violent resistance, whether that is rocks or something more. I wouldn’t have understood it to be genocide.

I suppose the term is loose and can include a lot of things, but I wasn’t sure why the presidents didn’t simply reject her premise.

Their testimony will go down in history as a dark day in our country.

They are screaming “globalize the intifada” meaning that globally people should violently resist or “shake off”. Who do you think people are going to “shake off” globally? Innocent Jews, hence the genocide.

They bobbed and weaved like proper politicians avoiding truthful answers. It was appalling.

Appalling is, unfortunately, the right word. I’ve rarely seen such a cowardice and flagrant virtue-signaling.

Sorry what was appalling? That the university presidents stand by the first amendment? That no matter how offensive the speech, as long as it doesn’t cross into active bullying or misconduct, it will be allowed? This goes both ways! No one is questioning the Israeli rally where they held posters like finish the job. Finish what job? Of killing all the Palestinian children?

There is nothing offensive about the word intifada or the phrase from the river to the sea. Intifada literally means uprising and yes it’s uprising against the Zionist occupation and the injustices the Palestinians suffer at their hands. It does not mean killing all the Jews or calling for the annihilation of Israel! Zionists need to pstop being so insecure. Why are you so hell bent on suppressing free speech?

Their attachment to free speech is quite recent. https://www.city-journal.org/article/harvards-double-standard-on-free-speech

The reason why many people are upset isn’t the hairsplitting of if “intifada” can be defined as genocide.

It is extreme discrimination or selective application of free speech by these universities. For example, Harvard specifically punishes students for making racist comments in private chats by rescinding their offers of admission.

Yet now Harvard welcomes free speech when the speech is calling for the death (if not outright genocide) of Jews.

Other universities have either fired or pushed out professors for having controversial or unpopular viewpoints that were in no way violent. In one incident, a professor was fired for showing a painting of Mohammad after informing students they would see such images.

It is complete hypocrisy and it is dangerous and wrong.

What is the difference between that and what Israel is doing to the Palestinians and no denunciation of that? The Palestinian holocaust is happening right now not is some imagine future hypothetical situation.
