Leftists Melt Down Over Failure of UCLA Israel Boycott Resolution

The BDS movement is one long hysterical tantrum of hatred and self-righteousness.

The UCLA Student Council rejected a resolution to divest from companies that do business with Israel, including Hewlett Packard, frustrating its sponsors Elizabeth Naameh, Armen Hadjimanoukian, and Omar Arce.

The Legal Insurrection video of Danielle Dimacali, a student notetaker having a meltdown went viral after the event after at which point the Google Hangout session abruptly ended probably to spare her any further embarrassment. Danielle Dimacali began by saying that she rarely speaks at these events and the rest was tears and recriminations.

In the comments section at the Daily Bruin, Danielle Dimacali accused critics of “obvious blatant racist microaggression”.

I must have never learned civility? Am I supposed to remain submissive? No, I just know when to stand up for what I believe in and what I believe is right. I will not silence myself or censor my language to make you feel more comfortable.

For the record, my job ends after the meeting has been adjourned. I used to consider good and welfare as a safe space for dialogue with the council members, some of those who I consider my closest friends. I am just as justified as getting impassioned over something as the public commenters. The heat of the moment and the intense emotions I felt led to the deluge of tears and strong diction. How dare you call me uncivil, you don’t even know me outside of my reaction to something I found extremely upsetting.

Later Danielle claimed that she was reacting to how upset her friends were and wasn’t against Israel.

Twitter was full of equally vocal meltdowns by BDS supporters upset that their latest racist assault on the Jewish State had fallen short of its goals.

    I managed to listen to at least 15 seconds of that blubbering rant before I couldn’t take anymore. Anyone care to beat that? It’s not as easy as it sounds.

    There are a lot of minorities tweeting their dismay, and most have names that suggest they are muslim. Imagine that.

    • Katie Smith

      “Like, I’ve never been so, like, disappointed in anyone in like, my entire like, LIFE!!!!”

      • truebearing

        She seems to really like the word like.

        • laura r

          like what her problem? shes an arab or something?

      • Sung Li

        Imagine M’bama like that. Could happen. He’s even more brittle than the fistula in the clip.

    • Amal Ekillur

      I just watched the whole thing. Utterly magnificent!!!! I’ve reduced the odd commie and more than one muz to tears over the years, but I’ve never seen such a complete disintegration.

  • DogmaelJones1

    Bang the table slowly, and rant on in unintelligible sobs. An accomplished speaker, that Danielle!

  • Anamah

    Daniel; why you don’t mention Ben Shapiro’s extraordinary speech?

    It’s s amazing to me you ignore it!!!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      It’s up on the left on the site

  • LiberalsHateUs!

    I’d write that there’s hope for UCLA after all, but not very likely.

  • darnellecheri

    Oh man. Oh man. Oh man. If you have never witnessed an veritable emotional disorder, you have now. Perhaps, even a personality disorder that is triggered by a blunt force blow against Israel-Jewish hatred.

  • CaoMoo

    wow just wow. That’s not how adults work when they don’t get their way.

    • darnellecheri

      No. Only when you have a DSM-5 classified mental/emotional disorder.
      Narcissism is also classified and it is incurable. Sorry, I went off the grid there thinking of Obama…

      • NYCFiredog

        I’d throw in Histrionic.

  • laura r

    i can quite understand what this boycott is about. how would a handful of people affect isreal? there some kids in school.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      They want the uni to divest from companies that do business with Israel

      • john spielman

        I say maybe the alumni of these liberal universities (Harvard included ) should divest themselves from supporting their Alma maters

        • Lucia Sorrente

          I know I would, if I still were a student. And then I’d organize or join some pro-Israeli rallies, to counter the hate. Damn leftist cry-babies!

        • walt kovacs

          uh, these are public universities

          and i have already started talking to those in the know about putting a measure on our ballot to get more public funds taken from the uc system

          let these lefties pay their own way

      From an atheist?

  • JVictor

    The ages-old seething hatred for Jews and Israel is inhuman. If the same type of fomenting absurdity was perpetrated on any other group, human rights activists, like the ones on display in Los Angeles would be up in arms. How sad that the progressive liberal left has succeeded in brainwashing our kids with the use of the word “racism.” Even when confronted with facts about who the real oppressors are, they start foaming at the mouth and crying racism which has become the battle cry for anything they deem to be unfair. Unfair? Do Danielle and the other girls, yes girls, and the gender-confused folk who undoubtedly serve on the UCLA Student Council think for a moment that they would even be allowed to be on any type of a ballot, much less be elected to office in many parts of the world, but, particularly in a country next to Israel? Not a chance. But those facts are lost on these people. Disgusting.

  • djcelts

    Did this vote come before or after their vote to condemn Syria for killing THOUSANDS of those same Palestinians?

    • walt kovacs

      never has been a vote

      as there will never be a vote to divest from companies that work with china

      as there will never be a vote to divest from companies that work with russia

      as there will never be a vote to divest from companies that work with the saudis

      this is all about hate of the joooo

  • Lucia Sorrente

    What a pathetic show! Eat your tears, antisemitic leftist zombies! Israel and Israel supporters are not moved and won’t back down.

  • Billy33

    I love it when radicals can only see one side of the story. I understand why she feels the way she feels, despite not agreeing with her, But she has to learn, and will as she matures, that just because she THINKS she is right does not mean she is right. Why hasn’t she called for divestment of companies related to Saudi Arabia or Iran? Why is her angst solely against Jews/Israel?

  • Charlie R.

    So Danielle thinks that anyone who disagrees with her is guilty of “microaggression”.

    Am I the only one who feels like bitch slapping any liberal that uses that word?

    • Libertarian Tom

      No, I think most of us, who use our head for something other than a hat rack, have secretly wish we could slap some sense into them. But then we remember how much fun it is, to use common sense and logic to annihilate their progressive beliefs. When used correctly, it will always induce LRR, Liberal Rage Response. LRR is a neurological reaction disorder that occurs in the brains of liberals. It is brought on when ever the person is confronted logic. LRR is often characterized by a rapid rise in blood pressure, rapid heart beat’s, eye twitching, muscular tension, repeating the same thing over and over, yelling, name calling, pointing of fingers, heavy breathing, foaming at the mouth, and all other angry childlike reactions. If left untreated this condition can lead to involuntary screaming, obscene language, physical attempts to silence the source of logic, uncontrolled crying, and in extreme cases heart attacks and death.

    • walt kovacs

      leftist, not liberal

      what the hell is microagression?

      is that like a baby slap?

  • Bill Pearlman

    This is definitely one of the funnier things I’ve seen lately.

  • Peter Pappas

    This is how true believers behave when they don’t get their way. It is critical that we understand that these people are fanatics. They are so sure that they are right that they assume everyone who disagrees with them is evil and must be destroyed. They are unstable, emotionally disturbed cultists.

  • CaoMoo

    The video has been made private. I was curious to see youtubes comments

  • Brent Albala

    Awwww, poor little Jew-hater gets smacked down. Then throws a temper tantrum and blames everyone else of racism. I feel so bad for her.

  • walt kovacs

    i want to thank fp for using the term “leftists” and not “liberals”

    i am a lib and pro israel and anti jihad

    and if a single one of these kids had the courage of their conviction, they would immediately leave the uc system

    but as we all know, this has nothing to do with israel….and everything to do with intimidating jews and pro israel students on campus

  • walt kovacs

    btw, as all i saw were mac books at the meeting and apple has a very large r&d plant in israel….why werent the council smashing their macs with a hammer?

  • andy_gill

    Danielle Dimacali’s meltdown was a thing of beauty. So many people have been thrilled by seeing a little Jew-hating shit writhing in emotional agony, and we are truly grateful to her for giving so much amusement to so many around the world.
