    We're all familiar with Ward Churchill and the early noise about 'protecting intellectual discourse.' Now here was a professor, that was NOT in the classroom, but stopped by an 'information booth' and had a discussion. The students after the argument, found out that he was a non-tenured professor, see what happens:

    Here is some commentary on the case:

    Here is a bit more commentary, funny isn't it, that the MSM has totally ignored this? Could it be that he isn't arguing for the right group?

    K, you are deeply, deeply misinformed if you think those with pro-Israel views are somehow "censored." People with pro-Israel views run our media, our government, our military. They run most of our academia, with the exceptions you describe. It's people with pro-AMERICAN views who get censored. The National Alliance can't even put up a billboard without fighting a legal battle. Say you want America to come first, and that Israel should not be our primary concern, and they will scream "anti-Semite!"

    The idea that Jews suffer from "censorship" is one of the more absurd ones perpetrated by liberals and neocons. Jews control the damn media: everything is about the Holocaust, Israel, how great Jews are, Anne Frank, Eli Wiesel, the terrible Nazis, the terrible British, blah blah blah. It never ends!

    Yes, there are pockets of Arabism in the universities, and there are some lefties who are anti-Israel. But they are anti-Israel for sincere reasons: they don't like its racism. I myself don't have a problem with racism, obviously, though I hate it when Jews hoard it for themselves and deny it to the rest. But it was JEWS who created the severe leftism of the American university, back when it served their purpose. Now they're crying because it's biting them in the ass, and I AM LAUGHING!

    WJ i think you focus your efforts on the wrong target. Islam is a greater problem then the jews. Many jews in this country are lawyers, judges, media members etc, but the Israelis are allies. They dont think the same as the jews here.

    Islam is the enemy and the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    I'll just bet those Palestinian students tried to discuss the matter with Prof. Klocek "in a polite and professional manner." :smoke:
