This just in: The California State Legislature has passed a new law making holocaust denial mandatory on all college campuses. Anyone who refuses to deny the holocaust will be punished, sanctioned, or thrown out of the university.
The holocaust that must be denied, of course, is the Palestinian holocaust.
The law orders university bureaucrats to "squelch nascent anti-semitism" and “encourages university leaders to combat a wide array of anti-Jewish and anti-Israel actions.”
In other words, if you oppose the Zionist genocide against the Palestinian people, you will be expelled or fired. If you point out that the Palestinian holocaust is ongoing, paid for with US taxpayer dollars, you will be defenestrated from the third floor of the Administration Building. If you adamantly refuse to deny the Palestinian holocaust, you will be turned over to the local JDL and run over by a bulldozer.
Since I was expelled and blacklisted from the American university system for questioning the events of 9/11, I have not been under any illusions about American universities as bastions of free thought and free speech. And since 60 state legislators signed a letter urging the University of Wisconsin to fire me due to my research and publications about 9/11, I have understood that state legislators love to try to force scholars down to their own pre-neanderthal level of cognition.
Even so, I never imagined the day would come when a state legislature would mandate holocaust denial.
