Reductio Ad Absurdum

Here’s an opinion piece by the two NYU students who accosted Chelsea Clinton at that Christchurch massacre vigil and denounced her as part of the hate that had spurred the attack. This is because she tweeted criticism of Ilhan Omar during the original “benjamins” controversy more than a month ago. (Here’s what I wrote in response to that original flare-up. A month later I wrote this.) Many Jews who are not supporters of the Israel right or the occupation or AIPAC thought that Omar’s remarks us...

But deliver it he will, and the speech is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Pacific time (9 p.m. Eastern) Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019.
