UCLA Video Shows Student Council Anti-Semitism

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 2, 2015

UCLA’s Rachel Beyda is a law student who decided to try out for Universiy’s Judicial Council.  She evidently had a fine resume.  However, when she went before the Council for a final interview, she was initially turned down due to one fact: she is Jewish, as indicated in the video clip posted below.

There was a time when UCLA’s Student Council’s action would have been labeled anti-Semitism.  But in these days of political correctness and bigoted behavior by the Left, it is often excused as something else.

After intervention by a faculty member, Beyda was ultimately appointed to the position.  However, even in the offending party’s apology, the Leftist anti-Semitism remains glaring with Fabienne Roth saying: “I am really sorry with how I framed my argument and the words that I used.  Using someone’s identity against them is completely unacceptable”.  Typical of Leftist bigotry, Progressive Roth believes it is the words or their framing that is the problem. No it is not.  The problem is the bigotry in the heart.

There was a time when bigotry was more likely to emanate from the Right side of the political spectrum.  While it still exists, those of the Right are quickly called for bigoted behavior by the press and greater society.  Today, bigotry is growing on the Left that is creatively camouflaged by political correctness and false intellectualism.  Its growing presence on college campuses should be a concern to all Americans.

    This type of behavior is unacceptable. Never again means exactly never again.
