Shapiro Crashes UCLA Divestment from Israel Hearing, Resolution Defeated 7-5

[Visit TruthRevolt.org.]

On Tuesday night, the UCLA undergraduate student government heard public testimonies for nearly 9 hours — from 7 p.m. until 4 a.m. — on whether or not the university should go forward with a resolution to boycott and divest from businesses that allegedly “profit from the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.”

The meeting, attended by over 500 people, began at 7 p.m. Tuesday night and ended 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Ben Shapiro, TruthRevolt.org Editor-in-Chief and UCLA alum, crashed the divestment hearing to blast both the student sponsors and those considering the anti-Semitic measure. Here’s the transcript:

My name is Ben Shapiro. I’m an alumnus of this university. I’m also a local talk show host on 870 [AM] in the morning, and I got out of bed and left my one month old baby there when I saw what was going on here tonight. I’ve never been more ashamed to be a Bruin. I’ve never been more ashamed to be an alumnus of this university than to see this divestment petition being considered at this level.

To pretend this is about occupation, to pretend this is about peace, to pretend that this anything other than vile, spiteful Jew hatred is a lie!

There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing Saudi Arabia. There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing Iran. There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing Palestine. There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing the vast bevy of human rights violations that happen every day in the Middle East, exponentially worse that what happens in Israel.

Any gay or lesbian that is targeting Israel in this room seems to have forgotten how high they hang gays from cranes in Iran. Every person of liberal bent who suggests that Israel is the problem in the Middle East seems to have forgotten that there is only one country in the Middle East that actually has any sort of religious diversity in it. The countries that are apartheid countries are those that are Judenrein – like, for example, Palestine.

So, for us to sit here and pretend that Israel is somehow on a lower moral plane is a direct manifestation of anti-Semitism. And to hold Jews to a different moral standard than any other country or group on the face of the earth represents nothing but an age-old and historic hatred for the Jewish people. All the folks here who are pretending that the B.D.S is about anything other than that, I would like to see a poll of those folks, and see how many of them actually believe in the existence of a Jewish state, qua-Jewish state, not as a state like any other, but as a Jewish state. They don’t. They don’t acknowledge that existence. They don’t believe in that existence. They don’t believe in peace. All this is about, pure and simple, is a desire to target the Jewish people.

“Judenrein” was a Nazi term to mean “clean of Jews.”

According to the Daily Bruin, the Undergraduate Students Association Council (USAC) shot down the resolution by an anonymous vote of 7-5. Despite protestation, the USAC decided the ballots would be secret when some members voiced concern for their safety.

Students in favor of the resolution offered no comment, saying they were “too disappointed.” Video of one particular protester has circulated:

    I have never heard a better defence of Israel than the words spoken by Ben Shapiro in the battle against the BDS movement. BDS represents the latest war against the Jewish state and must be fought with the same intensity as a military war. It is another war the Israelis/Jews cannot afford to lose.

  • reader

    I think, the contrast between Shapiro’s speech and that of the chik at the bottom is a fair representation of each side’s intellectual and emotional caliber. The problem is that marxist left wants the likes of the chik to run things, and Shapiro to be silenced and run out of town. You know, the classic “inmate running asylum” syndrom.

    • truebearing

      It’s good to see Shapiro following in the footsteps of people like Andrew Breitbart and David Horowitz. Nothing freaks the Left out like the courage to physically exercise free speech right in front of them.

  • TerrorIsEvil

    I wonder how the little university ignoramuses (students and faculty) condemning Israel for defending itself against annihilation at the hands of Islamists and terrorists would like this fellow in their dorms or their posh homes?

        THE STUDENTS AT UCLA PARROT THE LEFTIST DRIVIA, JUST LIKE THE MANSON CULT PARROTED CHARLES MANSON, THE MANIACAL SERIAL KILLER. THE CURRENT ADM. IS MORE LIKE THE NAZIS WITH THEIR ANTI-ISRAEL, PRO-IRAN, PRO-PALESTINIAN ARAB,PRO-TALIBAN,PRO-ALQAEDA MENTALITY AND DON’T HAVE A CLUE THAT ISRAEL IS OUR BEST ALLY IN THE MIDDLE EAST. YES, I’M GLAD SHAPIRO BROUGHT GAYS INTO THE DISCUSSION, BECAUSE ALL THOSE ABOVE GROUPS EXCEPT THE ISRAELIS’ DON’T BELIEVE THEY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO LIVE, MUCH LESS “ACCEPT” THEIR LIFESTYLE. AND IF THERE WERE ANY JEWS IN THE AUDIENCE, THEY WOULD BE THE FIRST TO BE SHOT IN A NANO SECOND. ONLY ISRAEL WOULD COME TO THEIR DEFENSE. GOD BLESS BEN SHAPIRO. I ALSO ATTENDED UCLA AND AM DISGUSTED THAT IT HAS BECOME A MOUTHPIECE FOR ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-ISRAEL PROPAGANDA.

    Bravo to Ben Shapiro for having the guts to put down the self hating Jews and their cronies in their hatred of Israel. Call it what you want but an anti Semite is an anti Semite when only Jews or Israel is singled out for supposed misdeeds. Bravo again to ben and down with the pathetic lefties!!!

  • TerrorIsEvil

    If she wails that much for being stopped from her deceitful propaganda campaign against Israel, then just imagine how she would feel if she were on this bus in Beersheba, Israel, when Palestinian Hamas terrorists blew it up: 16 people murdered, 100 severely wounded.

    “…profit from the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank”…

    Do these so-called “college students” know anything about History – America’s history, the Middle East history, any country’s history – anything at all?

    Did they ever hear that Israel graciously transferred Gaza to the “Palestinian” National Authority in 1993, which in turn passed it on to the terrorist entity called Hamas eight years ago?

    Did they ever hear that what the leftists conveniently call “the West Bank” is actually Judea – the country of the Jews – and Samaria – the country of the Samaritans (Jews who worshipped on Mount Garizim instead of Jerusalem)?

    Did they ever bother to take a look at UN resolution 242, Article 1(i) and (ii)?

    What the heck are they doing in this college, learning to be ignoramuses?

    Ben Shapiro is a mensch, kudos to him. To those who concocted this inane resolution and those who voted for it: shame on you! You are a disgrace, to your parents, to your college and to the American people.

  • Drakken

    With Shapiro standing up and being counted, where are the others? If you don’t stand up and be counted today, tomorrow will be too little and far too late.

  • The Facts

    Lucky for Mr. Shapiro, he was allowed in. If it was a David Horowitz event, people who wanted to speak would have been corralled out in the vestibule.

    • Drakken

      The question I have and what other people really want to know is, is there any drug that you refuse to take, inhale, shoot up, ingest or snort? Inquiring minds really want to know?

        Apparently, obamacre replaced one with contraceptives. As a result, I understand that it was corralled out in the vestibule. How sad.

      Depends on what they wanted to “speak” about. If they were their to harass and interfere with Horowitz’s presentation with the intent to silence him, are you saying they should have been let in?

      • The Facts

        Oh you, know. Speak. Like listen to the guy talk for a while and then say something factual in turn. Something that the carefully manicured press and media folks wouldn’t say. The kind of thing that doesn’t happen without Mr. Horowitz calling people ignorant, or Mr. Spencer whining in a piercing voice that the security should remove that person. Just some good old fashioned sensible disagreement.

          • The Facts

            Yes. It’s very amusing. The irony is immense. Here is a girl doing to David Horowitz precisely the kind of action he defended in his book, “Student,” only now it’s years later, Mr. Horowitz has turned predatory campus activism into a cash cow, and he cuckolds versions of his old self as if his new self is not a product of his old self. He’s no less belligerent, no less self-righteous, no less dependent on the University for a meal ticket, and frankly, if he were wearing a militant neck scarf, it would not surprise.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Thanks for vomiting your self righteous bile in your comment but you still haven’t addressed the islamofascist cows agreement with islamofascist leadership dream of having all Jews in Israel, SORRY “paleswine”, so they can be easily murdered.

            The Facts are that YOU are a neo-imperialist-fascist.

          • The Facts

            I take it the aforementioned “islamofascist” paid to attend the university. Mr. Horowitz did not. In fact, he bleeds money out of the university. The girl will be in college for maybe four years. Mr. Horowitz has been in college since 1964.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            The Facts are that she pays to attend the U to promote those who want to murder Jews.

            I hope the FBI, DHS, NSA are monitoring her and her friends and jihadis.

          • ahad_ha_amoratsim

            And that Horowitz does not bleed anything from anybody. He receives a speaking fee from campus groups who want to pay to hear him speak. Lots of people do that. But when a Jew does that (even one who has become Christian), The Facts consider its blood sucking, because The Facts are that he resents the idea that the Jews are not all dead.

          • laura r

            with the new rules for the FBI it wont be possible. also the whitehouse turns the other cheek.

          • ahad_ha_amoratsim

            Would you feel any better knowing that Horowitz converted some years ago to Christianity? Or is a blood sucking Jew still a blood sucking Jew in your book even if he becomes a
            Christian?

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Horowitz’s wikipedia page makes no mention of your claim that he converted to Christianity. It does say he is an agnostic.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Horowitz

          • ahad_ha_amoratsim

            I would like to be wrong on this. I was given to believe that he had become a born again Christian. But regardless, to The Facts, he will always be a blood-sucking Jew, which he seems to consider a tautology.

            The scary truth about this homely fat slob is she’s what the suicide recruiters prey on – ugly women they deem unfit for marriage, and therefore, ripe for blowing their sorry selves to bits – and taking as many infidels with them. At least that way they serve a purpose to their co-religionist koranimals. It’s well known that they go for the ugs and the disabled. A documentary was making the rounds a few years ago about female suicide bombers. Interviewees were, of course, those who changed their minds or were caught before carrying out their evil plan. And those useful idiots keep squealing that ‘all cultures are equal’.

            The MSA leader also mentioned organizing her other “hitler youth group”and said she supports Hamas, the terrorists who want Americans killed. How much would you like to wager that she was admitted to the University because she was a “foreign” student, has all her tuition paid for by American taxpayers, who she is in favor of killing…and being Anti-American, Anti-Jewish, she is a b I g hero on campus? I think she should go back “home” and try to attend a University there, stand up and argue with a male.

Something like Students for Palestine did to the Israeli ambassador not long ago. How undemocratic of Horowitz or Spencer not to want to put up with that.

    Thank you, Mr Shapiro for bringing sanity to one of our UC campuses.

    What must be asked is why the UCLA student government and virtually every other UC student government is having to spend so much time, energy and resources to this one ever-recurring issue. Could they not be devoting those hours to issues that affect the student body?

    Our campuses and even our student governments are being hijacked by the pro-Palestinian movement. The sad fact is that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the number one issue of contention on US college campuses.

    Kudos to the majority of the UCLA student govt, who shot this asinine resolution down.

    The Left, like every other entity have a hierarchy of values. For instance supporting Muslims is more important than supporting women. That’s how feminists are able to turn a blind eye to the mistreatment of women ubiquitous in the Muslim world. Supporting Islam is also more important than gay rights. That’s partly the reason why there exist such groups as Queers Against Israeli Apartheid. The highest value of all on the Left is anti-Semitism. That is why when they protested over the war in Iraq you could hear shouts of “Jews, go back into the ovens.” That is why Jew hatred was pervasive in the so-called “Occupy” movement.

    Before people bash me for what I am about to say and ask, please realize this is a question for which I have great difficulty understanding.

    The Jewish people overwhelmingly supported Obama and the liberal agenda. The Jewish big money Hollywood elite support Obama and the liberal agenda. Don’t they realize by now that the liberal agenda is a contradiction of their interests? There are only a few who seem to get this, Mr, Horowitz, Mr. Shapiro, and Mark Levin to name a few. The Jewish community is generally a well educated crowd. I honestly do not understand this.

    I honestly believe the liberal agenda coule be severely crippled if the Jewish big donors would end their support. I am speaking of those such as Soros. I would really like a Jewish perspective on this not some white anti Jewish conspiracy.

      It’s been a long exile, and unfortunately too many of us have lost touch with what it means to be a Jew. When a Jew replaces Torah values with secular values, he makes a huge mistake. When he deludes himself that his secular values are Torah values, he makes an even bigger one.

      If you think the problem with Jews in America supporting the agenda of those who seek to destroy them is bad, then you should look at what is happening in the UK. This week, for example, the annual Muslim Brotherhood event ‘Islam Awareness Week’ (which provides a platform for antisemitic hate preachers as well as another excuse for Israel-bashing) is being launched in, of all places, the new multi-million pound Jewish Community Centre in London:

    • CV60

      I disagree. It is far easier to explain why the world hates the Jews. It is because they are the Chosen People. In order to prove God a liar, evil must destroy the Jews. Therefore, they will always be hated by the world. Q.E.D.
      What confuses me is why the Jews consistently support those who would persecute them. Why, after Hitler, after Stalin, do many in the Jewish community support and vote for communists and socialists? Conservative Americans, and especially Christians love Israel and the Jews, yet it not reciprocated.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Why do so many Christians vote for commies and socialists?

        • CV60

          “Born Again” or fundamentalist Christians tend not to. In fact, they are one of the biggest opponents so socialists. Hence the mocking they receive. The more liberal and/or nominal Christians are a bit of a puzzle. Like Jews, it is inexplicable how they can vote against their own professed beliefs and interests. I suspect in many cases, it is simple intellectual and moral laziness. The slogans of the left sound good, so they vote accordingly, never doing the hard intellectual work to see that it is all a pack of lies leading straight to hell.

        because traditionally in NY the social programs for jews were run by leftists. they were private orginizations. this was around the turn of the century when they started. dont forget people made a distinction between socialists &communists.

    I personally couldn’t understand more than a few words the UCLA student was crying about, but there must have been a puddle under her chair afterwards. For cryin out loud (literally in this case), get a grip!!

        OMG. I am speechless. Is this representative of leftist students? My comrades from the ’70s would be horrified.

      • Painted Horse

        I can’t understand a thing she is “saying”.

      • LRBM

        Cant understand her, but I never can understand ultra left radicals anyway. She makes as much sense as any of them

  • Disturbed citizen

    This event lowers my opinion of UCLA for allowing such a proposal to be put up for a vote.

  • laura r

  • Daninkansas

  • JINNASH

    Rock on Ben!

    Disagreeing with Israel’s policies Dosent make someone anti Semitic as many of you are quick to accuse. This argument isn’t about berating Israel, but rather ending the biased American support there.

      As for Iran, they already gave crippling sanctions from the international community which have greatly affected the lives of the people there. Just because Israel claims to be more democratic than their neighbors Doesn’t mean they should not be held accountable for their actions- or inactions, such as delaying peace talks with Palestinians because of the “Iranian threat”…blah blah blah

      • Well Done

        Israel isn’t claiming to be more democratic than their neighbors, they simply, obviously, are. Why would you want to end American support for Israel? There is nothing “biased” about it! 26 women were “honor killed” in Gaza and “West Bank” last year. You think not supporting that is “bias”? You heinous fool. Were the WW2 Allies “biased” by uniting against the Axis? You suck!

      • Drakken

        Here let me break it down for you and make it so simple a leftist dumbazz like you can get it. Those effing ragheaded muslims will NEVER EVER give the Jews of Israel peace period, end of story, that want them all dead, get it now? Frankly speaking, put me in charge and I will show you what peace really is, what arabs?

    • Atikva

      Of course “berating” Israel IS pure and unadulterated antisemitism! The not-so useful idiots who avail themselves of this right – most of them without ever having set foot in Israel – got their clue from the rabid anti-semites so-called “Palestinians”. This rabble found it easier to say that they are anti-Israel rather than anti-Jews, that’s all.

      As to ending the American support… tough luck David (with a name like that you should be ashamed of yourself). The latest surveys show that 70% of us, whether Jews, Christians or atheists, support Israel. And the more we see what the “Palestinians” DO, the more Israel’s supporters will grow.

  • Lanna

    Ben’s speech was so inspiring, we all have the rights to speak the truth, especially against anti-semetism and unrational, and unreasonable hatred against Israel. Israel is not to blame for every evil that man causes, WHAT AN INSANE IDEOLOGY! We are all responsible for our own actions, take responsibility and quit blaming others! Start doing positive things to help people instead of creating violence and instability…Troublemakers never Prosper!
