Brandeis Goes Dhimmi—A Proposal for Passover

Hamas, Hamas… Jews to the gas.

I am starting this piece with that incindiary chant, intoned all too frequently at European demonstrations recently (not to mention soccer matches!), to remind readers just how far things have gone and who is behind them.

The folks at Brandeis University,  their administration, may not be aware of it.  I hope they’re not, though I suspect they are – aware that CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has been linked closely and legally with the religious fanatic terrorist organization Hamas whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel and many other things not associated with Mother Teresa.

CAIR calls itself a “Muslim NAACP.”  The NAACP may have lost some (or a lot) of its original mojo, but to compare CAIR to the NAACP is like comparing Josef Mengele to Ben Carson.  Say it ain’t so.

But it is so to the administration of Brandeis University, which has descended into a dhimmitude (a term extrapolated from dhimmis — non-Muslim citizens of Islamic states — by the brilliant Bat Ye’or) worse than the last Jews in Damascus or Baghdad by rescinding, at the behest of CAIR and the Muslim Students Association, their invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali to receive an honorary degree at this year’s Brandeis commencement.

Hirsi Ali, whom I have had the honor of meeting while CEO of PJ Media, is one of the most impressive and courageous human beings on this planet.  President Lawrence of Brandeis would be honored to kiss her feet. Now he has banned her — shredding the Bill of Rights, one of the greatest documents in human history, in the process, including, of course, freedom of speech.

It is unclear what MOST motivated Brandeis to withdraw the invitation.

1) leftism first, all other causes defer to the Leftist Cult Manifesto

In the LCF, you can call for a boycott and divestment of Israel and put a crucifix in a jar of urine, but you can't talk about Muslim mutilations

2) Fear. If you call for a boycott, divestment or a barge full of Jew haters provoking anti-Semitism, your physical safety meter doesn't move the needle a nanometer. If you attack, slander, kill, murder, and strip basic freedom from Chistians and Jews, expect zero rage, fury or "like kind" responses.

But if you tell the truth about Islam or allow someone to do so at your place...you might be put on a "hit" list.

Free speech isn't free. Sometimes there is a price for defending it.

3) principles of convenience

When a "liberal" wants to advocate "do-gooderism" and to lecture others on "how to behave" on their moral high horse...they fall out of the saddle in a thud if the principle might offend their radical masters. The atrocities committed in their names by radical leftism ought to shame them.

It no longer does and THAT is the mother of all shames.

When your principles wander away from you because you would be forced to choose to defend conservatives or conservative principles in order to avoid hypocrisy...you are no longer "liberal".

You are a moral coward.

Maybe it is all three.

Brandeis ought to be ashamed.

But they aren't. And therein lies all the difference.

Entirely predictable, symptomatic of the deep rot, the cowardice of liberal Jews. It's the same in Israel, and we have less excuse even.

What many fail to realize is that the rot runs so deep, that Liberalism cannot be reformed, it has to be simply mocked, derided and scorned. It is going to be the end of us, literally. It threatens us as much as the Global Jihad, perhaps more so, since the jihadists and Muslim extremists are honest about what they are and what their goals are. This kind of thing typifies where America is going, full dhimmi. And the Republicans are going along and always have, just as the Democrats. Obama is a symptom, even when he is gone, the dhimmitude and self-loathing will go on, no matter what.

Muslim fanatics can set off a nuclear bomb in NY or California or Chicago, Obama would apologize, blame Israel as would the NY Times and liberals would hold protest marches calling for the building of a mosque at the site where the jihadists set off their nuclear device, and exterminated a million Americans, after the place became inhabitable again naturally enough, after twenty or fifty years, when the radiation has dissipated.

And no I'm not even joking. No really I'm not. The reality of liberal self-loathing has long past the point of parody.

As a minor point, this isn't a First Amendment issue. Brandeis is not the government, and their censoring of Hirsi Ali's speech is something they are entitled to do. They made themselves into dhimmis and fools by doing it.

WHERE WILL BRANDEIS DRAW THE LINE

on being pressured by Islamist thugs? If today they can force it to cancel honoring Ayaan Ali, tomorrow they'll force it to change its name because Louis Brandeis was a Jew and Zionist leader-an offense to Islam.

Can I borrow from the leftist strategic meme?
.
Brandeis and its followers SUPPORT female genitalia mutilation, child slavery, human and sex trafficking (borders).
.
The fact that they oppose anyone speaking out about it means they support it.

Support women!! Ban female slavery supporters!! Ban female mutilation supporters!!!

We have fallen to a level of humanity that is staggering... Can we ever walk upright again or are we forever to act as cowards on this earth.. Daily we kowtow and make excuses for barbaric action perpetrated by the Muslim ideology and CAIR with their propaganda continues to spout their lies...
ONe day we will have to act like upright citizens or we will cease to be a nation where the rights and freedoms of our citizens are recognized around the world as the very best..... We are sinking into the mire of sludge and we had better get our act together quickly, for time waits for no man...... and time is against us....

You raise a great question, if the GOP according to the DEMs are waging a war on women, then what the heck is Islam doing to women? All these leading democrats who on a daily basis state the GOP is waging a war on women should be ashamed of themselves for not standing up for the real war on women going on in every muslim country and for that matter muslim communities throughout the world. And to finish where's that great women protector of the world commenting and coming to the defense of Ali. No where to be found, but she did almost get hit by a shoe yesterday.

As I've said in other places it's makes complete sense when you accept feminism isn't about women but about white upper middle-class women.

It's attitude is "Who give a flying f*ck about some black woman whose vagina was mutilated before she was forced into being a child bride when a woman's blouse costs more to dry-clean than a man's dress shirt?"

As insane as it sounds when you boil modern American feminism down to its positions and actions that's what you get.

Given the Dem #waronwomen meme is designed to appeal to American feminists what do you expect?

Consider this: a strong-willed "woman of color" fighting for the rights of woman being oppressed by a patriarchical fundamentalist religion with political power. Such a woman would be celebrated at every college campus, would be a guest on nearly every talk show, and perhaps even getting a phone call from Obama and passes to White House functions.
But this would apply only to women fighting against religious Christians and conservative republicans for abortion on demand and access to free birth control.
A woman fighting against her oppression and genital mutilation by fundamentalist Muslims is a bigot and islamophobe who must be shunned and denigrated.
Can the left in this country, and especially those feminists who decry a "war on women, " wrap their heads around this hypocrisy?
What about the Jews of America? Never Again seems to only apply to fascist nominally Christian whites; there is more Jew hatred in the Koran than in Mein Kampf, but if jihadists decided to murder every Jew on the planet, the leftist Jews in academia and politics would gladly load their brethren onto the cattle cars and allow Israel to be destroyed, in the name of social justice, political correctness and anti-racism, since to fight against or even recognize the evil of radical Muslims is in itself so racist.
For all their antipathy to religion, the most fundamentalist, radicalized jihadist Muslim is the uber-victim and the most oppressed person on the planet, such that any other victim group (gays, women, blacks, etc) are to stifle themselves before the uber-victim, no matter what atrocities the Muslims visit on them.

Just to clarify the last paragraph: despite the antipathy the left has to religion, they somehow consider the fundamentalist radical jihadi Muslims to be the most oppressed, victimized group in the world.

In just a cursory reading of the Brandeis statement they said it is because the lady's views and actions did not comport with their "core values". I think I may have missed something. How on earth can their core values put them in line with a bunch of Muslim fanatics that want to kill every person on earth that does not become a Muslim or pay their tax and live like slaves? Have all American Jews gone off the deep end, first they votes en mass for a man that hates them and now a school named for a famous Jewish justice revokes their honorary degree to a ultra courageous young woman. I am damn disgusted with both American Jews and leftist universities.

So I looked it up as suggested (I didn't know anything about the Einstein/Brandeis relationship). It appears that Einstein washed his hands of the university because at its founding it was too conservative for his tastes - rejecting his proposal for hiring the Marxist Zionist Harold Laski, and associating itself with Cardinal Spellman. Interesting, and ironic.
