Now is an excellent time to remember that when conservatives are invited to speak at colleges, they’re often described as controversial. But not in this case?

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

‘Extermination Camp Run By Jews’: On Yom Kippur, Cornell Set to Host Professor Who Compared Jews to Nazis

Cornell University is set to host a panel—on the holiest day of the year for Jewish students—featuring a professor who compared the Jewish state to Nazi Germany, claiming that Palestinians in the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip are living in an “extermination camp, run by Jews.”

The Cornell Institute for Comparative Modernities panel, which is titled “Palestine and Indigenous North America,” is the final event in a series about “Settler Colonialism, Sovereignty, Apartheid.” The panel includes Cornell American Studies professor Eric Cheyfitz, who has compared Israel to Nazi Germany, and University of Kansas professor Robert Warrior, a vocal proponent of the anti-Israel boycott movement, who claimed that Israel “illegally confiscates Palestinian lands, it literally blows up Palestinian homes, house by house.”

The event comes as Jews on college campuses are facing increased incidents of anti-Semitism, with the federal government investigating allegations of anti-Jewish harassment at multiple schools, including the University of Southern California and the University of Vermont.

The event will take place on Oct. 5, which falls on Yom Kippur—precluding many Jewish students and community members from attending. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year for Jews during which they are required to fast and refrain from working.

“The terrible ironies of history: Gaza has become an extermination camp, run by Jews,” Cheyfitz, the Cornell professor, wrote on Twitter in 2014.

If the Juden showed up they might say something inconvenient. Or worse, look like people, just like everyone else.

It’s time to leave.

This is how woke left anti Semitism operates with hatred for Judaism or Israel on the so called most prestigious university campuses in the US

Presentism at it’s finest. Let’s judge history on today’s perceived values. Are there no Christians to debate the speaker??

Why aren’t the Cornell Alumni screaming about this? The only way these events are going to stop is via a massive campaign against the current Cornell administration by its alumni. Withdraw any pledged support for the school. Do not attend any Cornell events. Pummel the Cornell president with emails.

These days controversial typically means offends Leftists sentiments. Since equating Jews with Nazis isn’t offensive to Leftists it isn’t controversial. Conversely, since equating abortion with the Holocaust offends Leftist sentiments, it’s deemed highly controversial despite the fact the Holocaust has less than a tenth the fatalities of abortion in America.
