Nothing like testimony from a racist Communist terrorist to endorse [2] a racist left-wing boycott. It’s no coincidence that most of the supportive statements seem to come from University of California faculty. The UC system has been repeatedly criticized for its anti-semitism problem.

The endorsements begin with a cynical act of Jewashing by listing the call for boycotting Israel by a professor who declares “I am a Jew.”

Then we move on to…

Angela Y. Davis, Distinguished Professor Emerita, UC Santa Cruz
Office: 831-459-5332, 831-459-1924
Email: aydavis@ucsc.edu

The similarities between historical Jim Crow practices and contemporary regimes of segregation in Occupied Palestine make this resolution an ethical imperative for the ASA. If we have learned the most important lesson promulgated by Dr. Martin Luther King—that justice is always indivisible—it should be clear that a mass movement in solidarity with Palestinian freedom is long overdue

Yes, that Angela Davis.

The Communist terrorist had circulated a petition calling for a boycott of Israel back in 2011. She served on the bigoted Russel Tribunal and this kind of ugly rhetoric and activism against the Jewish State is nothing new for the Black Panthers she was associated with [3].

Now 16 percent of the American Studies Association’s members have backed an Angela Davis petition against the Jewish State.
