‘Woke’ College Leftists Create ‘Jew-Free Zones’ on Berkeley Campus

“Woke”  leftist college students have established “Jew-free zones” on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, according to reports.

The prestigious college has long prided itself on being the home of free speech.

“Free speech is one of UC Berkeley’s most cherished values: It is both part of our legacy as the home of the Free Speech Movement as well as central to our academic mission,” according to the UC Berkeley website.

Of course, that may have been true at one time, but it no longer appears to be the case.

Nine different UC Berkeley student groups recently banned Jewish students who support Israel from speaking on campus.

“If it wasn’t so frightening, one might be able to recognize the irony in the sight of campus progressives trying so hard to signal progressive virtue that they fall victim to a deeper moral shame,” The Jewish Journal’s Kenneth L. Marcus reported.

“Nine different law student groups at the University of California at Berkeley’s School of Law, my own alma mater, have begun this new academic year by amending bylaws to ensure that they will never invite any speakers that support Israel or Zionism.

“And these are not groups that represent only a small percentage of the student population,” Marcus continues.

“They include Women of Berkeley Law, Asian Pacific American Law Students Association, Middle Eastern and North African Law Students Association, Law Students of African Descent, and the Queer Caucus.

“Berkeley Law’s Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, a progressive Zionist, has observed that he himself would be banned under this standard, as would 90% of his Jewish students.

“It is now a century since Jewish-free zones first spread to the San Francisco Bay Area (“No Dogs. No Jews”).

“Nevertheless, this move seems frightening and unexpected, like a bang on the door in the night.

“Berkeley law students are not the first to exclude Zionists.

“At the State University of New York at New Paltz, activists drove two sexual assault victims out of a survivor group for being Zionists.

“At the University of Southern California, they drove Jewish student government vice president Rose Ritch out of office, threatening to ‘impeach [her] Zionist ass.’

“At Tufts, they tried to oust student judiciary committee member Max Price from the student government judiciary committee because of his support for Israel.”
