You could play Mad-Libs with the various labels and the story would be the same. Moreover, while there's obviously overlap between anti-semitism/anti-zionism and the embrace of the victimhood of Palestinians, they're not the same thing. In fact, the tendency to characterize condemnation of Israel's policies and actions in this area as anti-Semitism is itself little more than cynical race-baiting.
It's not just the college kids. It's the professors, the administrations, even my own church. I'd believe the whole "it's human rights" nonsense if Leftists were consistent about it. As in, they applied the same vitriol to other countries with far worse human rights records. Like, I don't know, Cuba, maybe. I'd even settle for an equal amount of scorn directed at China, which treats its Muslims far worse.
At least leftists aren't into kidnapping and lynching innocent black kids like white Americans living in the South.
Come on, Dad, you're better than that. All that does is open up an easy avenue for me to compare and contrast the kidnap/murder rates for black on white crime versus white on black crime. You know how that would go. Then we'd get the mouthbreathers swarming in here.
