Jews are afraid. Again. As always. This time at the big UT campus.
The University of Texas at Austin is the biggest campus in Texas. The last time I checked, the enrollment was over 50,000. The school has the reputation of being a hipster hangout, reflecting the “Keep Austin Weird” slogan adopted by the Texas capital city.
The student government at the University of Texas in Austin unanimously passed a resolution in support of Jewish students on campus.
The resolution passed on Tuesday came after a window was broken at the campus Hillel and following anti-Semitic posts on the UT 2020 Facebook page, the Daily Texan student newspaper reported.
“Several Jewish students that I know don’t even feel comfortable wearing their (Star of David) necklace out or small things like that just to express their religion,” Jonathan Dror, an author of the resolution, told the student newspaper.
Hillel said in a statement issued last week after the vandalism that it was “working to take specific actions to ensure the safety of the Jewish community on campus,” and would provide more details on those actions when they become available.
More than 3,000 Jewish students attend the university in Austin.
The Daily Texan, the school’s student newspaper, offers more details.
“Several Jewish students that I know don’t even feel comfortable wearing their (Star of David) necklace out or small things like that just to express their religion,” said Jonathan Dror, the SG external financial director and an author of AR 26.
Dror said he hopes that despite the constant presence of anti-Semitism, this resolution will serve as reminder to Jewish students that the University is here to help and protect them.
“Unfortunately, anti-Semitism is always around and we can never get rid of it, but right now it’s rearing its head up,” Dror said. “So, we just thought it was very important to show a message of solidarity with Jewish students, and that we’re supporting them right now.”
Yep, muh Jew is correct. As long as Jews keep acting like Jews, antisemitism will be with us.
One more thing. The stupidity of the students involved is revealed by the fact that no one challenged whether the antisemitism was a hoax perpetrated by Jews.
