University abruptly reverses itself when caught singling out Jewish student


A university in New York has abruptly reversed itself when it was caught attacking speech supporting one side of the war the terrorists in Hamas launched against Israel, but not the other.

It happened at State University of New York where one Jewish student, confronted by pro-Hamas slogans on clothing worn by other students, wore a statement supporting the Israel Defense Forces.

She then was ordered into a meeting with a school dean.

But the American Center for Law and Justice stepped in, attended that meeting by telephone, and obtained a quick resolution to the speech infringement.

“The school quickly understood our position and agreed that our client was free to wear her IDF T-shirt to class and that she should not have been singled out by the school and reprimanded,” the ACLJ explained in its report.

“Subsequently, the dean met with the other students our client identified to the school as having worn expressive apparel in support of Hamas and Gaza, as well as the entire first-year class. The dean ensured that every student was aware of the school’s desire to keep politics out of the classroom as much as possible, but also that no dress code existed, nor would one be adopted.”

The dispute arose because, last November, the Jewish student was ordered to attend a meeting with a dean, “because a complaint had been made about her.”

The substance of that was that she wore an “IDF” T-shirt to class.

The ACLJ reported, “Her decision to wear the T-shirt in support of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) came after many of her fellow classmates wore similarly expressive clothing to class in support of Hamas or Gaza. None of the other students, however, had been similarly criticized or requested by the dean to attend a meeting because of their clothing choices, so the student reached out to the ACLJ for assistance.”

The ACLJ said it was a matter of explaining to the school the student’s right to equal treatment, “including the ability to wear expressive material in the classroom.”

The legal team also pointed out that the school has no dress code, so the reason for the complaint about the IDF T-shirt likely could only have been based on bias against Israel, bias against the student, or a campaign to enforce a “heckler’s veto,” in which those on one side of an argument complain about others’ speech, and demand censorship.

The result, the ACLJ said, is that “our client is free to continue expressing her viewpoints, including her support of Israel, and attend classes without issue.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
