MAEL: 'The Double Standard is Blatant'

"The message is clear on universities, specifically Brandeis University: when known anti-Semites and people who oppose Israel's right to exist come and get an (honorary) degree, it's OK."

SIGN OUR PETITION AGAINST ANTI-FREE SPEECH AT BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY

 

On The Kelly File, with Megyn Kelly, Brandeis University student and TruthRevolt reporter Daniel Mael blasted the Brandeis University administration for its double standard in revoking the honorary degree offer to Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Mael said:

The double standard is blatant. When Tony Kushner came and spoke the past-president gave a statement saying that they were honoring him simply for his commitment to furthering human rights across the world and his role in society, not his political views or his views toward Israel. The same applied to Desmond Tutu. Desmond Tutu also had the audacity to tell Jewish people who opposed his anti-Semitism, "tough luck." But yet, when it comes to issues where CAIR gets involved, the university caved. And I can tell you the message is clear on universities, specifically Brandeis University: when known anti-Semites and people who oppose Israel's right to exist come and get an (honorary) degree, it's OK. But when other people speak up, especially Ms. Ali, who should be praised for her commitment to stop female genital mutilation, to stop honor killings and to stop forced marriage, somehow it's not OK. That's unacceptable.
