The anti-Israel movement, including Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists, seek to drive Israeli and pro-Israel speakers from college campuses through disruptions. The goal is to scare off not only speakers, but students who want to invite speakers.

At both the University of Missouri and Evergreen State College, an atmosphere of aggressive “Social Justice” activism damaged enrollment and contributed to financial difficulties.

Apparently, even liberal students don’t want to attend institutions where student and faculty social justice warriors have turned the campus into a battleground.

That religious doctrine, however, never is applied to fields in which women and/or racial/ethnic minorities are OVERrepresented.
