Last week we featured Mark Steyn’s column about forced intellectual conformity on campus:

Universities are no longer institutions of inquiry but ‘safe spaces’ where delicate flowers of diversity of race, sex, orientation, ‘gender fluidity’ and everything else except diversity of thought have to be protected from exposure to any unsafe ideas….

Cornell Student Assembly 4-10-2014

Last Thursday the Cornell Student Assembly voted 15-8-1 to table indefinitely the anti-Israel Divestment Resolution brought by Students for Justice in Palestine and some other groups.

The video of the shouting by students — and one very aggressive non-student — reflected the frustration of the pro-divestment students.

One anti-Israel Cornell professor even claimed...

As readers know, Legal Insurrection has devoted much of the past several months to fighting the academic boycott of Israel and Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement on campus.

When the Cornell Students for Justice in Palestine tried to schedule their last-minute anti-Israel Divestment Resolution for Passover week, I assumed that was something isolated to Cornell.  (The attempt was defeated yesterday.)

But maybe not.

Passover starts on the night of April 14, and seders are held that night and the night of April...
