    Another hysterical internally inconsistent article. As his quoted definition says, Mcarthyism is a "Governement" directed witch hunt, not a legitimate movement by concerned citizens to demand a balanced educational environment in the universities they fund with their tax dollars. A demand to end Stalinist intimidation and a corrupted hiring system is not Mcarthyism. Gazit, like the hysterics who preceded him over the last weeks, ignores the complaints of Im Tirzu and the students who brought them their problems and tries to close down legitimate debate and competing interests by screaming loud and repeatedly "Mcarthyism". It is the standard tactic of the self apointed elites who deny any other citizens rights but their own to freedom of expression and organization and demonstration, and yes the right to influence other private individuals (e.g., donors) to the justice of their positions. Gazit what you ae witnessing is classic democracy in action. A groundswell of disempowered citizens saying we have had enough. We will use the available legal processes to have our voices heard and our influence on results felt. whether you like it or not. You may control the power centers like the press and universities, the justice system and courts may also be in your hands, but so long as it is one man one vote in this country, you cannot control the voice of the public citizenry and you cannot silence the demands for balance and justice in our corrupted institutions. I know it would be easier if the public could be ignored and you elites could just impose your absolute truth on us but what can you do, Thomas Jefferson created the archtype and not Bismark.
