Must not speak the truth at UCB

On Wednesday evening, the Associated Students at the University of California (ASUC) at Berkeley voted unanimously to support a resolution “condeming Islamophobic hate speech at the University of California.”

The resolution focused on the recent incident of the outrageously racist and Islamophobic hate speech of Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, a lecturer at UC Santa Cruz, who was videotaped in June 2012 saying that campus activists involved in Students for Justice in Palestine and Muslim student organizations have ties to “terrorist organizations.”

Rossman-Benjamin, as The Electronic Intifada has extensively reported, is the co-founder of an outside political group, the Amcha Initiative, which seeks out students and professors who criticize Israel or engage in Palestine solidarity activism, accuse them of “anti-Semitism,” and urge university administrations — or state officials — to take punitive action against them.

Immediately after the video surfaced, Rossman-Benjamin’s inciteful hate speech was condemned by student organizations at UC Santa Cruz and elsewhere across the UC system. However, outgoing UC President Mark Yudof has so far refused to take any condemnatory action against her speech, a demand urged by students; while a report posted by Mondoweiss added that his office has only offered a “no comment” response.

How surprising. A newsletter titled "The Electronic Intifada" supports the proposed resolution.

A quick glance through the site finds nothing but anti-Israel and pro-Palistinian articles.

They've aligned themselves with a people that celebrated 9/11 and supports terrorism.

Why would anyone think members of that culture would harbor anti-semetic attitudes? Or would support terrorism.

I wonder. I certainly do. (Sarcasm off).

Would anyone expect anything different from the self-loathing leftist Jews at Berzerkly?

What is hate speech to one, is simply opinion to another.

But I bet its still "cool" (and legal) to hate Jews and Christians though, right?

And in case you didn't bother to read it:

"HATE SPEECH" is free speech: The U.S. Supreme Court stated the general rule regarding protected speech in Texas v. Johnson (109 S.Ct. at 2544), when it held: "The government may not prohibit the verbal or nonverbal expression of an idea merely because society finds the idea offensive or disagreeable." Federal courts have consistently followed this. Said Virginia federal district judge Claude Hilton: "The First Amendment does not recognize exceptions for bigotry, racism, and religious intolerance or ideas or matters some may deem trivial, vulgar or profane."

the left loves giving out phobias to people, notice they never called the nazis jewishphobic. They aren't mental health professionals and so cannot diagnose mental illness.
