A Dangerous Combination: BDS and ANTIFA

Hat tip Legal Insurrection

Cornell law  professor William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection calls this the most dangerous development he has seen on campus in many years. The forces of Boycott, Divest and Sanction (against Israel) and Antifa are teaming up to fight the voices of the right when they come to campus. I totally agree with his assessment.

What this means is that we can look forward to repetitions of what happened at UC Berkeley recently when Milo Yiannopouls was scheduled to speak.

This comes in the wake of Charlottesville, but we are not talking about these two groups banding together to protect students from the KKK and neo-Nazis. They want to stop voices like Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, David Horowitz, and others who espouse the conservative point of view. That ,means also that Antifa will be there to disrupt any pro-Israel speaker. And when Antifa shows up, you can expect violence. They don’t debate; they come to fight and disrupt. In short this is, as Professor Jacobson says, a dangerous cocktail.

Since Stanford Professor David Palumbo-Liu is involved in this, I am reminded of when he came to take part in a free speech panel at UC Irvine. This was in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris. Palumbo-Liu made a statement to the effect that the US State Department definition of anti-semitism included any criticism of Israel. After the event concluded, a friend and colleague of mine confronted Palumbo-Liu (in my presence) and told him his statement was demonstrably false.. The startled professor, rather than defend his statement, turned tail and scurried away like a frightened rabbit. If his little thugs do initiate violence at an event and he is present, he will be the one hiding under a table.

University  presidents and chancellors need to be on alert. The “campus climate” is about to get stormier. There should be zero tolerance for Antifa on any campus.
