Students at Evergreen State College have reached peak insanity, arrogance, and blindness.
Evergreen State students are using anti-Semitic sentiments to silence Bret Weinstein saying that he’s using his Jewish background to “invalidate the claims of racism being raised against him.”
Weinstein emailed students and faculty several weeks ago to object to the insane request being made that white members of the school not show up for one day for a “day of white absence”. The email, which was very straightforward and sedate, sparked outrage and ended in protests and property damage where the “social justice” wing of the student body acted like savage animals, fully unrestrained in their visible hatred and racism – much like the Black Panthers of the past.
The campus was shutdown over a threat of violence in the wake of this bizarre, unfounded insanity.
A letter, signed by “some Jewish students at Evergreen bent on the destruction of white supremacy” accused Weinstein of using his “Jewishness” as an excuse for his alleged “anti-black language and behavior”.
Campus Reform reports:
“Bret has attempted to position himself as the victim,” the letter claims, castigating him because “[i]t wouldn’t take much for [him] to apologize, but he has held fast to his seemingly innocuous position of victimhood, and in doing so has highlighted some of the ways that liberal racism functions.
“Here we can learn something about how not to react when claims of racist behavior are raised against us,” the letter continues.
After digressing into a discussion of whiteness and how “most” Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews came to be considered “white,” the letter takes aim at Weinstein’s statements “that he cannot possibly be racist because he knows what it is like for his people to be oppressed.”
This, according to the letter, shows that there is a “negation of responsibility and a gross misuse of the history and suffering of our ancestors,” charging that “[a]nti-blackness and racism in general are pervasive amongst white Jews.”
“Where anti-semitism is found, invariably we also find all sorts of racism like orientalism and anti-blackness. Anti-racism is a Jewish issue! Anti-blackness is a Jewish issue! We cannot ignore Jews of color, black Jews, or the fact that all Jews also have a stake in destroying white supremacy,” the authors write, blasting “Bret’s ignorance of this” as “not only embarrassing[,] but also dangerous.”
The letter further explains that “[t]he way to address racism is to be willing to engage in honest conversations about it, and be willing to admit to where it lives within us,” adding that Bret’s apparent refusal to engage in conversations like the ones listed above puts “many Evergreen students in legitimate danger.”
“Bret Weinstein is wrong, he has put you in danger, and we will not allow him to hide behind our histories in order to dodge responsibility for his abhorrent and reprehensible words and actions,” the authors conclude.
