Harvard Shows Signs of anti-Semitism

Posted by Steve Markowitz on December 2, 2012

This Blog has proffered the view that racism and anti-Semitism is currently more prevalent on the Left than emanating from the Right.  A recent example of this Leftists hate emanates from that bastion of modern liberalism, Harvard University.  According to newsbusters.org, students at the Nine River Houses residence had invitations placed under their doors late last week to attend “Harvard’s Newest Final Club.”  In footnotes the invitation stated: “Jews need not apply, … Seriously, no f–king Jews,” as well as “Coloreds OK”.

After concluding that this offensive diatribe was not part of the satirical Harvard Lampoon, a Harvard official said: “As Dean of the College, and as an educator, I find these flyers offensive.  They are not a reflection of the values of our community.  Even if intended as satirical in nature, they are hurtful and offensive to many students, faculty and staff, and do not demonstrate the level of thoughtfulness and respect we expect at Harvard when engaging difficult issues within our community.”  It is telling that such boorish and hateful actions require interpretation as to their appropriateness in Leftist institutions; so much for common sense and common decency.

Progressives in America and throughout the greater Western world have traveled down a slippery slope that includes a grotesque mixture of political correctness and bigotry.  This dangerous path has been traveled before in the not-too-distant past and has led to very bad outcomes including Stalin’s and Mao’s butchering of their own people, sandwiched around fascism.  We should not expect the Leftists to see the perversion within their ranks.  That responsibility rests with middle America who has in recent times shown too much tolerance towards the Left’s bigotry.
