On Gabriel Knight and what anti-Semitism really means
. . . proving that not all who walk the hallowed halls of the Cardinal are bright.
The time has come,"the Senator said,
"To talk of many things:
Of ASSU--and idiocy--and anti-Semitism
And why the Cardinal is boiling hot--
And whether jews have wings.
The Walrus and The Carpenter
ASSU comes a cropper in its run-in with Jabberwocky. This is as one would expect, the young and delicate being eaten by the Walrus and the Carpenter, at last. And unsurprisingly, it would seem, they cannot believe one would hold them to their words.
The ASSU is a hot bed of anti-semitism, as, likely, is most of the rest of the Cardinal.
"At Stanford, despite our administration’s Jewish-inclusive attitude, just last year, the ASSU Senate tried to cut the Jewish Student Association’s budget by two-thirds, giving the JSA just 24 hours to appeal. After JSA leaders took them to task, the Appropriations Committee claimed it had made a mistake — but its “correction” still amounted to a one-third budget cut. The Senate claimed that the cut was made because JSA maintains a cash reserve for exactly this sort of scenario, but the proposed cut was clearly larger than those eventually mandated for groups with similar emergency funds. The ASSU eventually backed down, but throughout the JSA crisis, it was painfully clear that the Senate had demanded cutbacks from JSA which, so far as the final budget proposals indicated, had not been required from any of the other identity groups on campus. I wouldn’t say the ASSU is a hive of anti-Semites, but I also don’t think the Senate has done very much in recent years to put the Jewish community at ease."
"A mistake", "an accident" . . . sure, anything you say, but we know it was simply anti-semitism.
If you are going to do excuses for unacceptable behavior, learn from the master.
The students should clean house, but most of them are deep in their cups/jiggy with this kind of anti-semitism. Perhaps all we should expect is for them to don their Che T-shirts, and pat them on the head as they prove their non-violence by attacking an innocent.
Yeah, not much in my nature.
