Anti Semitism and the pampered intellectual

Deans’ disdainful texts further expose the antisemitic rot at Columbia

Texts between Columbia deans, obtained and released by the House Education Committee, tell the tale — and show exactly how modern progressive thinking morphs into classic tropes of Jew-hatred. 

The deans were texting amid a May 31 alumni event about Jewish life on campus, the school’s effort to show it was truly sensitive to the crisis (and so still worthy of alums’ donations): The two-hour panel let speakers share stories about rising Jew hate in the wake of the Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

But the texts from the hateful three — Susan Chang-Kim, Matthew Patashnick and Cristen Kromm —show these top faculty mocking the idea that Jewish students deserved increased support and protection. in the face of soaring bigotry, and resenting having to listen to Jewish pain. 

“Laying the case to expand physical space! They will have their own dorm soon,” groaned Patashnick.
