James O’Keefe has released a sting video of an Assistant Dean of Students at Cornell University indicating to a purported potential foreign student that the school was amenable to pro-ISIS and pro-Hamas student clubs, and even training of “Freedom Fighters.”

Casey Breznick, Editor in Chief of the conservative Cornell Review and contributor to Legal Insurrection, has been covering the dispute at Cornell University over a mandatory health care fee that is eerily similar to the Obamacare mandate penalty.

Portrait of Campus Anti-Capitalist cropped

The opinion of capitalism as the greatest evil known to man is not only the dominant view at Cornell and other college campuses, it is the irrefutable dogma of the mindless droves of the overwhelming majority of faculty and students.

They look at the injustices in the world, at the inequities, and...

We have covered the thinly veiled and sometimes not veiled threatening and violent behavior of anti-Israeli activists on campus so many times, it’s hardly possible to sum them up in one post anymore. Just scroll through our BDS Tag.

We previously posted video of anti-Israel protesters getting in the face (literally) of pro-Israel students at Cornell who were holding counter-protest signs, Cornell Pro-Israel students taunted: “F**k You Zionist scums”.

We have long tracked the increasing aggressiveness of anti-Israel groups on campus.

See my post this summer, Expecting anti-Israel violence on campuses this fall, for a partial catalog of such instances.

One component of these protests is non-student activists inflaming the situation. For example, on April 10, 2014, after the Cornell student assembly...
