Swastikas Spray-Painted Outside Office of Jewish Prof at Columbia U.

Swastikas Spray-Painted Outside Office of Jewish Prof at Columbia U.

“NYPD has launched an investigation into a possible hate crime”

Are we to believe there are people at Columbia who would carry out such a hateful act, or will we eventually learn that this was another hoax?

CNN reports:

Jewish professor finds swastikas spray-painted on her office walls at Columbia’s Teachers College

The NYPD has launched an investigation into a possible hate crime after a Columbia University professor’s office was vandalized with two spray-painted swastikas and a derogatory word aimed at Jewish people.

Professor Elizabeth Midlarsky, who is Jewish and has published various articles related to the Holocaust, told CNN, “I opened the outer door and almost passed out,” when she saw the two swastikas spray-painted in red.

Midlarsky, who has worked at the university’s Teachers College for 28 years, reported the incident to security and received support from staff before being brought home by a van.

“I was so shaky, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it,” she said.

Thomas Bailey, the president of Columbia’s Teachers College said in a statement Wednesday, “We unequivocally condemn any expression of hatred, which has no place in our society. We are outraged and horrified by this act of aggression and use of this vile anti-Semitic symbol against a valued member of our community.” Bailey added that they are working with police to find the perpetrator.

    From 2007:

    Then, on Oct. 31, Teachers College Dr. Elizabeth Midlarsky found a swastika painted on her office door. Police said Friday there were still no suspects in that case.

    Professor Constantine, it turned out had been under investigation for her massive amounts of plagiarism of her own students and was later fired by Teachers College at Columbia. The noose incident only happened after her job was in peril due to her sleazeball behavior.

    The relationship, if any, in 2007 between the celebrated noose on Professor Constantine’s door and the celebrated swastika painted on Midlarsky’s office has never been publicly untangled.

Congratulations. Somebody wants to cause some excitement, so all & sundry are collaborating to make his dream come true. It’s so nice to see everybody playing so well together.

Sensible people, on the other hand, would just shut up and paint it over. Wait for the vandal to pop up and insist that his First Amendment rights are being violated . . . then grab him. Until then, leave the ritual hysteria over words and symbols to the Black Caucus.
