“Social justice” activism at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, is becoming self-parody, and not in a good way.

We have covered extensively the anti-Israel activism that has led to anti-Semitic incidents in 2014 and 2016. Among other things, in 2014 Jewish students who stood up at a campus-wide forum were mocked and jeered...
