Angry journalists, who initially boycotted the session, describe subcommittee's claims to be part of a 'witch hunt,' and slam Israel's 'authoritarian' efforts to clamp down on the media.14:27 09.02.16 | 2 comments
"I never heard any body at Harvard or at Berkeley demand to boycot its own institution for invading Iraq or supporting Israel." The two have frequently boycotted over policy issues. Harvard refuse to allow military recruiters on campus. Berkeley boycotts pretty much whenever someone passes gas. They've boycotted Arizona, Israel, and had sit-ins/riots over rate hikes at their own university. They themselves actually got boycotted for their anti-war views. The kind of thing you're complaining about is pretty commonplace in the US, and indeed is pretty much encouraged. The only time you have to far information is ideas is if you're wrong. That's the point of free speech. If you're wrong, so be it. If you're right, then let your opponents speak freely and crush them with the truth.
