Dartmouth College professor Mark Bray is coming under increasing fire as his support for leftist domestic terror group Antifa becomes more outspoken.
The lecturer describes himself in his bio as an “historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in Modern Europe.”
Apparently, Bray’s designation of terrorism is rather selective. He was a spokesman for 2011’s Occupy Wall Street movement, which was funded in part by George Soros, a sponsor the Antifa-linked group Refuse Fascism. The ironically-named, menacing organization was responsible for, among other instances of violence, the rioting that led to the cancellation of Milo Yiannopoulos’s appearance at UC Berkeley in February.
Furthermore, Bray published a book in 2017: Antifa, the Anti-Fascist Handbook, recently signing a copy for his “comrade,” anti-police professor Michael Isaacson. Bray’s inscription encouraged, “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”
Bray’s close ties to Antifa—and his adjudication of their violence as “preemptive self-defense”—has thankfully put him in the hot seat with Dartmouth’s president as well as with police.
Dartmouth head Philip J. Hanlon recently condemned Bray for “supporting violent protest.” Hanlon maintained that “the endorsement of violence in any form is contrary to Dartmouth values.”
Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, told the New York Post, “People like Bray…don’t have a place in academia. [He’s] riling up people to cause public harm.”
On college campuses across America, Mark Bray and those of his ilk are a dangerous influence on the leaders of tomorrow. College administrators need to wise up and drain the swamp of academia. To that end, an editorial in last week’s New York Post made a concise, solid recommendation concerning anti-cop leftist professor John Jay that seems fitting with regard to Mark Bray as well: “Cut this dirtbag loose.”
