Jewish Prof at Columbia U. Says He Would Not Allow His Children to Go There

“Having spent over 13 years building a close-knit community of like-minded liberals, I suddenly find myself abandoned.”

This is the same professor who recently did a viral rant on this topic.

He wrote this for CNN:

Opinion: I’m a Jewish Columbia professor. I wouldn’t allow my children to go here now

I’m a 40-year-old Columbia University professor and last month I found myself crying in front of dozens of strangers on campus.

I wasn’t planning on crying. The tears just came out when I spoke about the danger of antisemitism on US campuses in a video that has since gone viral. Judging from the thousands of supportive messages I’ve received, it seems that Jewish Americans around the country have been crying with me. It was a cry of despair — a howl, really — that took on the purest form of human pain. A cry that arose from the darkest, deepest and most primal of fears. A cry that has been consuming me for weeks, urging me to speak up.

Following the horrific massacre in Israel by Hamas terrorists on October 7, I felt an intense, relentless grief. Grief for the thousands of civilians shot, murdered, mutilated, raped and beheaded. Grief for the intentional killing of babies, some burned beyond recognition. Grief for the confused children dragged at gun point by violent men into captivity in Gaza.

Yet there was a deeper, darker grief. A grief that seeped from a wound I’d thought was healed. A grief that comes from the trauma hiding at the bottom of every Jewish person’s heart. A grief that comes from seeing, once again, Jewish people targeted in their homes and communities.

Soon, this darkest of griefs was joined by intense fear. I feared not only for the future of innocent Israeli and Palestinian children, but for the future of my family here, in New York City.

Having spent over 13 years building a close-knit community of like-minded liberals, I suddenly find myself abandoned. Abandoned by the resounding silence of friends and neighbors who refuse to publicly denounce Hamas’ evil crimes against humanity. Abandoned by colleagues who whitewash and excuse barbarities that included the raping of Israeli women and the execution of disabled Israeli children as a mere “military response,” who consider such horrors as “awesome” acts of “resistance.” Abandoned by student organizations who have welcomed and celebrated the October 7 massacre with the chant “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” code words for the eradication of Jews living in Israel.

He was not suddenly abandoned. His head was in the sand.

Exactly where would he allow his children to go to college? Good luck with that.

Its not just Columbia or the ivy league colleges. The dem party has been hijacked by leftie extremists. Only self-loathing jews who celebrate their own annihilation are welcome in the dem party nowadays. Biden is obama’s 3rd term.

<emWelcome to the party, pal!

I built up friendships and professional relationships over the course of decades, too. Most of them won’t talk to me anymore.

See, I did the unthinkable, the unforgivable: I came out in favor of individual rights. The right to keep and bear arms, the right to refuse a certain recently-developed experimental medical procedure, the right to free speech regardless of viewpoint popularity, etc. Most egregious, the right to find humor in a far-too-serious Woke conversation instead of mindlessly agreeing.

I sounds like this professor just discovered that Leftism in general — and Wokism in partitular — is a religion. One which has zero tolerance for heretics or apostates, and which has an ever-present ongoing Inquisition to identify, excommunicate, and punish such non-believers.

Good on him for waking up, but what’s his plan moving forward? Accept that they’re wrong and start building a new network of real like-minded people? Or repent and try to ingratiate himself back into the Leftist fold?

Sorry, bud, but I have no empathy for you being a weak-minded, gullible fool for so many years. You’re a pathetic chump, and your sudden epiphany rings hollow to everyone who recognized that terrorists are murderers and savages while you where willingly their patsy.

You may not believe me but I looked up “putz” in the dictionary and there was a photo of this guy.

And then I looked up “schmuck”and there was a photo of this guy.

And then I looked up “Emotional Soohistication of a Prepyscebt Child” and there was a photo of this guy.

Same thing for “idiot” “libtard” “adult with blinders” and “moron.” Kept seeing photos of this guy.

Will he learn anything from recent events? I doubt it.

    We know that this ColumbiaGuy has the emotional sophistication of a prepubescent child because any American child who read Dr.Seuss’s HORTIN HATCHES AN EGG or Shel Silverstein’s THE GIVING TREE or watched BAMBI or watched THE LION KING could see what was happening.

    One is tempted to write to this ColumbiaGuy to politely tell him something creative like “F@ck you, a&&hole” but what good would it do
