A Liberal's Take on Mizzou and other University "Protests".


I don’t want to make analogies to the 1930s but we have to remember that it was the students at universities who first started burning books during the Nazi regime. And these students are book burners. They don’t want to hear diverse views on college campuses.

When I went to speak at Johns Hopkins University, there were protests. It was said that because I won’t acknowledge that Israel commits crime against the Palestinians, I am, quote, “harassing students” and violating the ethical standards of John Hopkins University. By expressing my opinion, I am harassing students. This has become a very serious problem not only in American universities, but in universities around the world, as well. And it is influencing and having a terrible impact on the education of students. …
You have to call these things what they are. Double standard, hypocrisy, bigotry, McCarthyism and the fog of fascism is descending quickly over many American universities.
