It’s Not Antisemitism. It’s White-Hating.

Jews need to decide whose side they’re on.

There have been strange doings among America’s elites. On December 5, the presidents of Harvard, Penn, and MIT – all ladies – were flayed during congressional hearings for insufficient anti-anti-Semitism.

Congresswoman Elise Stefanik asked them: “Calling for the genocide of Jews, does that constitute bullying or harassment?” Liz Magill, president of U Penn, answered, “It is a context-dependent decision.” Claudine Gay of Harvard and Sally Kornbluth of MIT gave similar answers.

The sky fell. Seventy-four members of Congress demanded that they all be fired. Congress launched an investigation. The White House pronounced itself shocked. Liz Magill of Penn and Claudine Gay of Harvard, issued gaudy apologies. That wasn’t enough for Liz, who has resigned. But she’s not exactly out on her ear. She may not be smiling as much, but she stays on while the university looks for someone who will snarl more convincingly at anti-Semites, and she keeps her tenured job at the law school.

It’s a good thing the question wasn’t about exterminating blacks or sexually confused people, because she really would be out of a job.

Part of Liz’s problem is that Penn plays the mug’s game of commenting on things that have nothing to do with Penn: “From the President: Statement on the Death of George Floyd.”

What’s George Floyd got to do with Penn? Nothing. Here is a statement on the presidential election of 2016.

Penn just makes progressive noises and pats itself on the back. That’s fine when everyone on campus is equally brainwashed, but poor Liz got in over her head.

“On Oct. 7, Hamas attacked Israel, and some of the university’s largest benefactors were furious with what they said was Ms. Magill’s slow response in issuing a statement condemning the attacks.”

It’s her job to run the university, not to blab about something 6,000 miles away. But it’s not good when benefactors are furious over inadequate anti-anti-Semitism, so, “On Oct. 10, Ms. Magill issued her first statement condemning the Hamas assault, which some critics said was insufficiently forceful. In the weeks after, the university issued a series of statements, including a stronger condemnation of Hamas. These statements also faced criticism, including from some pro-Palestinian alumni.”

What’s a girl to do?

A billionaire U Penn donor, Marc Rowan, said he would give no more money to Penn unless she got the boot.

He claimed he persuaded other big donors to withhold up to $1 billion. Money talks, and Liz is out.

Sally Kornbluth of MIT is still smiling. She didn’t even have to apologize.

The MIT Corporation told her critics to buzz off. She did get into a tight spot during the hearings when someone asked her why MIT has a black dorm.

She wriggled off the hook by saying this was OK because it was “positive selection,” not “exclusion.” White boys, you better not try that.

President Gay of Harvard is still on the job. Being both the first black and the first woman to run the place helps.

She also looks, for all the world, like an LGBT-cutey, but, to my astonishment, she is married – to a white guy, no less.

Well, I stand with the ladies. I don’t mind seeing wind-up-toy progressives get slapped around a little – but not for letting too much free speech loose on campus. As if they were ever guilty of that. Speech is speech. So long as it isn’t likely to incite immediate lawless action, it’s speech. All three made that point, and Claudine Gay put it pretty well. She said calling for genocide doesn’t violate Harvard’s rules because, “We embrace a commitment to free expression, even of views that are objectionable, offensive, hateful.”

She said only actions break Harvard’s rules. Well said, Claudine — except that that’s so farcically untrue, I can’t see how even she believes it.

Just before all this blew up, the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE) issued a report on free speech at the top 254 colleges and universities. You can read it for the details, but Claudine got a thorough hiding: “Harvard gets worst score ever in FIRE’s College Free Speech Rankings.”

“The lowest score possible, 0.00.” “The University of Pennsylvania also ranked in the bottom five.”

Yep, these are the people who were gibbering in Congress, under oath, about how much they love free speech, even if it’s “hateful.”

They are either ignoramuses or liars; take your pick. In the hearings, President Gay was asked the percentage of conservatives on the faculty. “We don’t collect that data,” she said. Just six months earlier, the Harvard school paper itself published a faculty survey showing that 2.5 percent said they were conservative, 0.4 percent very conservative, and a combined 77 percent liberal or very liberal.

Ignoramus? Liar? But I repeat myself.

Harvard also comments self-importantly on things. In 2022, it raised the Ukrainian flag on campus and blasted Vladimir Putin for “wanton aggression” – but there was no Israeli flag after October 7. Uh, oh. Anti-Semitism.

And just last Tuesday, there was more on Claudine: “Harvard covered up secret plagiarism probe into president Claudine Gay.”

Two months ago, the New York Post wrote Harvard to ask about 27 cases of what looked mighty like plagiarism. Just three days later, the Post got a stiff letter from a high-profile defamation lawyer: “Hands off our president.” Harvard has now admitted that there were “a few instances of inadequate citation,” and that there will be corrections “to insert citations and quotation marks that were omitted from the original publications.”

Just like Martin Luther King. The editor of his papers wrote that “King’s plagiarism was a general pattern evident in nearly all of his academic writings” and “is also noticeable in his speeches and sermons throughout his career,” including “I Have a Dream.”

He still has a national holiday on his birthday.

Carol Swain is angry that Claudine Gay used her work without credit, and explains why she thinks the woman still has a job: “A White Male Would Probably Already Be Gone.”

The Harvard Corporation is still convinced that Claudine “is the right leader to help our community heal and to address the very serious societal issues we are facing.”

That means she’s proof against a direct nuclear strike. I think we can call her president for life.

The campaign to kick out President Gay did have illuminating moments.

Bill Ackman is a graduate and billionaire donor.

He has tumbled to the fact that “Whiteness at Harvard is deemed fundamentally oppressive” and that “Jews are presented as white people. It is therefore ok to hate Israel and Jews as they are deemed to be oppressors.”

Mr. Ackman says he only just figured this out. Better late than never, but he is Jewish, and complains mostly to President Gay about “the antisemitism that has exploded on campus during your presidency,” adding stupidly, “Antisemitism is the canary in the coal mine for other discriminatory practices at Harvard.”

No. White-hating is the canary in the coal mine, and it flopped dead in its cage decades ago – even though Billionaire Bill never noticed.

The GOP never noticed, either. On December 5, House Republicans held a press conference with Jewish students to talk about antisemitism on campus.

Fine. When did Republicans ever invite white students to talk about anti-whiteness on campus?

The fact is, this is not anti-Semitism in any real sense of the word. The people chanting “From the river to the sea” don’t hate Jews for the reasons gentiles are alleged to hate them: that they killed Christ, or control Hollywood and the media, or they’re pushy money-lenders, or were tax farmers in the Middle Ages, or because the demonstrators are secret admirers of Adolph Hitler.

No. That stuff is completely alien to them.

These students are just doing what they are trained to do: see everything as oppressor versus oppressed, settler versus indigenous, global north versus global south, and above all, white people versus everybody else. And in that schema, rich, light-skinned, nuclear-armed Israelis make an easy target in their fight against swarthy, charity-case Muslims.

Jews, who have pushed diversity and anti-whiteness for decades, seem to think they get a special exemption as Holocaust survivors and perpetual victims. Thanks to current events and to Jewish wealth and prominence, Jews are not just white oppressors, they are uber oppressors.

The question, therefore, is: Will Jews learn anything? Will they insist that the solution is Holocaust awareness training, starting in kindergarten? Will they demand that DEI offices add them to the victim’s list so they can be coddled and made to “feel safe,” along with blacks and trannies?

This Jewish law professor makes the stupidest possible argument in the bluntest possible way: “To Fight Antisemitism on Campus We Must Restrict Speech.”

“The value of free speech has been elevated to a near-sacred level on university campuses,” writes Claire O. Finkelstein.

Another ignoramus or liar. “Antisemitism — and other forms of hate — cannot be fought on university campuses without restricting poisonous speech that targets Jews and other minorities.”

Please, she says, hate white gentiles all you like, but leave our precious Jews and other minorities alone.

This dope is on U Penn’s Open Expression Committee and is chairman of the committee on academic freedom, and here she is calling for closed expression and academic slavery. Claire, darling, the more you tell your beloved non-whites that Jews are victims too, that you share their pain and millennia of agony, the more they will hate you and think you are the worst possible kind of white people.

Jews are smart, but they can be appalling blind. They have been busy promoting mass immigration, diversity, multi-this, and multi-that. Bill Ackman has finally realized that Jews can’t escape being white.

They need to decide which side they are on before they get chewed up by the multi-culti madness they helped set in motion.
