Jew haters rule the university of Sydney

The red-green ratbags from Sydney university are for free speech? Only leftist free speech, that is. Not for anyone with an opposing view. This was an ugly incident:

Big brave Jake Lynch, director of the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at Sydney University, repeatedly taunts, films and otherwise intimidates an elderly woman who threw water at anti-Israel protesters who’d stormed a lecture by Colonel Richard Kemp, shouting down the speaker and abusing the audience before wrestling with security guards.

Later he claimed she kicked him in the nuts. (She didn’t, but she should have.)

University of Sydney slammed for ‘restricting free speech’ after protest

Heated protests have seen 13 people handed show cause notices after students were dragged out of a lecture hall

The University of Sydney has been criticised by its own academics and students for its actions following a protest that has resulted in one professor facing the sack and a number of students facing expulsion.

Over a hundred members of the university community attended a meeting at the Camperdown campus on Wednesday to condemn the university for “restricting free speech” after 13 protesters were handed show-cause notices following turbulent scenes at a lecture by retired British colonel Richard Kemp, a vocal defender of the Israeli Defence Forces.

Professor Jake Lynch, who has publicly campaigned against Israel, and 12 others were involved in a fracas at the lecture that began with heckling and descended into students being dragged out of the hall by security guards.

The show-cause notices have meant that those involved have been gagged from speaking publicly.

Professor Lynch has since been cleared of allegations of anti-Semitism but could still face dismissal from his post as the director of the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies.

Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon accused Vice Chancellor Michael Spence of running an inquisition against his own institution.

“There is no place for McCarthy-like witch hunts at this university or at any university,” she said.

Senator Rhiannon and outspoken Sydney University academic Nicholas Riemer also accused Dr Spence of hypocrisy after a speech he made in April talked of his vision for the university as “that of a forum for the free debate of difficult and often confronting ideas”.

The University’s leadership came under fire for its cancellation of an anti-militarism meeting two days before Anzac day this year. The 165-year-old institution also attracted criticism for banning a talk by controversial Muslim cleric Uthman Badar and attempting to prevent the Dalai Lama from speaking on campus in 2014.

NSW Council for Civil Liberties president Stephen Blanks described the university’s actions as “bizarre”.

“Universities, which have been a hotbed of free speech for centuries, are threatening staff and students with disciplinary action for expressing themselves”.

Professor Riemer​ agreed. “It is the young activist with the megaphone not the intellectual in the lecture hall that is the future of free speech” he said.

The Vice Chancellor dismissed the allegations as “simply risible”. “The University is not interested in the political views of staff or students. It is very interested in upholding its Codes of Conduct,” he said.

At the meeting which became occasionally heated, Avril Alba, a lecturer in Jewish civilisation pointed out that staff and students on both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli debate were issued with show-cause notices.

Dr Riemer​ maintained that the issue was not politics but civil liberties. “What is being done to Jake and the others is an attack on all students and staff at the university. It is wrong and must not be tolerated”.

Prominent lawyer Julian Burnside also leant his support to the dissenting voices.

“The fact that Professor Lynch faces the prospect of dismissal is an indictment on the capacity of the University to engage in meaningful debate,” he said.

    Why did Lynch not give his own talk rather than disrupting
    someone else’s talk.

    What Lynch did was not meaning debate!

  3. In stead of teaching kids how to think for them selves, or even what to think, all the so-called “education system” seems to do these days is teach kids how to not think at all – how to avoid thinking entirely. It thus only indoctrinates them into remaining infantile delinquents, (worse than the juvenile kind) dependent on the nannystate for all direction in their lives. It only ‘teaches’ them (abuses them) to enjoy slavery, to pave their own roads to hell with good intentions, and to look forward to the trip.

    Abusing kids with these false notions of “entitlement,” (to rights without concomitant corollary responsibilities) is a crime. It also short-circuits the basic learning process, where exposure to unfamiliar ideas only STARTS with denial, but then moves on to acceptance. Liberals insist kids have the false right to remain irresponsibly wrong, to not be “offended” by having their “feelings hurt” by initial exposure to the often-painful Truth.

    Their proud motto of “And always remember, kids – there’s no wrong answers!” corrupts kids into stopping learning at the point of their initial “But I don’t want to learn it!” reactions, depriving them of both their responsibility and their rights to learn to become self-reliant and responsible adults.

    ALL COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES “TEACH” (ABUSE) KIDS THESE DAYS, IS SEDITION!

    Like their globalist bankster donors, owners and sponsors, they are against all sovereign national governments!

    And, as such their curriculums should be gone over with a fine-tooth comb ASAP!

    We need to re-take control of the education system form the globalist liberal traitors ASAP, because each new voting generation is larger than the previous one. The world can’t survive much more garbage-in, garbage-out democracy.

    These proglodytes are also mostly “taught” SEDITION (abused by the false and backwards notion) that “Nations Cause Wars!”

    To them, the idea of “nations” and “nationalism” only began during the Enlightenment, and was a concept – exactly like that of “greedily” owning, hording (and improving!) personal property, which was an idea deliberately invented by racist white people (including, of course, the Jews) to create exclusivist borders and restrict the movements of all those noble swarthy collectivist tribal savages on the planet.

    Ignoring the fact that all the nations on earth evolved organically over time, from families to clans to tribes to nations to states and eventually empires, they “reason” in their usual, literally backwards, pre-posterous ways, that, in order to achieve world peace, they must first destroy the concept of “nations!”

    That way those who destroyed their nations won’t have to feel jealous anymore about those who didn’t.

    And they hate Israel the most, because it is the most successful nation, the main one to disprove their fantasy claims.

  4. These pathetic pieces of filth are oh so brave in their condemnation of Israel and any of its supporters from the safety of their Australian tax payer funded university seats. These are the type of people that would say that ISIS is just a misunderstood group of frustrated camel jockeys! Jake Lynch looks like some poor excuse of another professional student who had to move on into academia because he had no where else to go. WHAT A TOOLHEAD!

  5. Ha! The Centre for Peace and Conflict!!!

    Comedy gold, the moonbats never fail to deliver.

  6. Subjects such as social studies, peace studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, area all fronts of Marxism/communism, ans are used for communiust agitprop at the university itself.

    They should be removed from subject matterthat is worthy of academic study.

    1. Jake Lynch’s “peace studies, Peace and Conflict Studies” rort is entirely focused on the destruction of Israel with everything it entails. The guy is a ticking time bomb.

  7. Professor Riemer​ agreed. “It is the young activist with the megaphone not the intellectual in the lecture hall that is the future of free speech” he said.

    So here is a professor no less, who thinks that the megaphone is the true manifestatation of free.

    If the prof is right, then the winners will always be engineering students and their teachers, for in that game of building the loudest megaphone, they cannot be beaten- not by profs in social studies anyway.

    1. The most idiotic concept of free speech ever. The punk with a megaphone shouting down the invited speaker is the “future of free speech?”

      I beg to differ. Leftist lies stink to high heaven. For them “free” is when it meets their political narrative. Those who oppose their agenda obviously have no right to a future. In this case we need more than loud megaphones.

  8. Why the FRACK are our tax dollars being wasted on this crap and the people who promote it?
