The Left Awakens a Sleeping Giant Week in Education

The Left Awakens a Sleeping Giant Week in Education

Your weekly report on education news.

In this case, the giant is the culture, which is observing the radical left’s response to Hamas and is rejecting it.

People are disgusted and there will be real consequences.

Even government bodies are acting.

This is simply not acceptable.

It’s so widespread.

Open and blatant anti-Semitism.

Professor Jacobson has been very vocal in all of this.

Good for this guy.

This seems related, somehow.


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


The whole point of allowing these protests is to scare Jews off from elite universities and to marginalize them.

Kind of what the USSR did before the great Jewish emigration.

It’s like Jack and the beanstock. The left is a gargantuan vine with tenacles everywhere—all through our government, education system and people in strategic places. They have created a mythical giant that threatens our very existence and we on the right are like poor Jack who is trying to work up the courage to climb the vine and kill the giant.

What is happening on campuses is not acceptable in America. We must not only stop it but deport any visa-holding student that participated in any of the protests. Any university that was involved should be put on probation and all federal funds should be withheld. All donors must be outed and exposed if they continue to donate to these schools. Then the American students that have participated should be identified and shamed publicly. To show public support for a terrorist organization like Hamas is against the law because even a protest on their behalf is material support and that is specifically against the federal law.

To the extent that this pullback from donors has any material impact on campuses, both in terms of the student body and the academic staff, it will take YEARS for that impact to manifest itself.

Unfortunately, I think it won’t have much impact at all for two primary reasons: First, the vast majority of these ‘elite’ institutions have gigantic endowments which will help to buffer whatever loss in donations is realized. Second, unless Congress changes the statutory law about foreign donations to colleges in the same way they’ve regulated foreign donations to political campaigns, Big Oil money and to a lessor degree, Chinese money will likely make up any shortcomings these institution face.

Lastly, it’s not just ‘elite’ schools that are suffering from this embrace of antisemitism. You can walk onto any public college, particularly in the Midwest (surprisingly) and the Mountain and coastal universities, and see similarly sized demonstrations against ‘Zionism’ as we’re seeing at the Ivies. The scope of the rot at colleges and universities, public and private, I believe is significantly underestimated.

    The “and then suddenly” phase is too close, both for academe and for society as a whole. The Left will not be restrained in time.

This is all a result of the long march of the left thru higher education and is causing a significant rethinking within the Jewish community ranging from Modern Orthodoxy to those who though they were progressive as to the desirability of attending such high cost brainwashing academies and more significantly to be proud and not be intimidated as Jews
