The University of Chicago is the latest institution doing absolutely nothing to deter or punish antisemitism. A pro-Palestinian student organization at the University made a post on Instagram calling on all students to avoid taking “Sh—ty Zionist Classes.”
The group, the University of Chicago Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, is urging all classes discussing Israel or which are taught by Israeli fellows and professors to be boycotted. “Don’t Take Sh—ty Zionist Classes. Support the Palestine movement for liberation by boycotting classes on Israel or those taught by Israeli fellows” the post read.
The post added that students who attend these classes are “participating in a propaganda campaign that creates complicity in the continuation of Israel’s occupation of Palestine.” The post continued, “Israeli-centered classes are designed to obscure Palestinian perspectives. Many courses which proclaim to be about aspects of ‘Israeli Culture’ make no mention of Palestine or Palestinians, preferring the term ‘Arab Minority’ at most.”
Israel is an “apartheid state” and the courses are “Zionist propaganda” the student group claims. “Boycott these classes that serve as vehicles to spread Zionist propaganda on American college campuses. The Zionist agenda of these classes can be red directly off their course descriptions, which we’ve highlighted for you here. If you or anyone you know are taking these courses, DROP THEM.”
Naturally, a University of Chicago spokesperson did not address the issue, nor condemn the student group directly. The spokesperson gave the following statement:
“The University of Chicago is committed to support the wellbeing of all members of our community, to welcome people of all backgrounds, and to provide an environment for faculty and students to engage freely and openly on a wide range of issues. These values compel our steadfast opposition to discrimination, including rejection of antisemitism, anti-Palestinian bias, and other forms of bias that are incompatible with our commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
The spokesperson added that the University of Chicago does not “tolerate violence, threats, intimidation or harassment directed at individuals or groups, as reflected in University Policy.” But it seems they are tolerating the Palestinian group’s vitriol given there are no consequences nor condemnation of the group’s actions.

Teacher in Ireland imprisoned for refusing to use ‘gender-neutral’ pronouns
An Irish teacher’s fight against the woke masses has landed him in jail. Enoch Burke allegedly was initially suspended on full pay from the Wilson’s Hospital School temporarily, after refusing a request from the principal to address a transgender student by “they” instead of “he,” according to Irish outlet Independent.ie.
Burke is an evangelical Christian who teaches at Wilson’s Hospital School, a high school that is run by the Church of Ireland. It is co-ed and caters to boarding and day students.
Burke continued to show up to school in order to teach, despite his suspension. As a result, the boarding school got an interlocutory injunction restraining order against him, barring him from coming in the building.
Still, Burke showed up every day to work. Then, “the school’s board of management filed a further application, and on Friday, Justice Miriam O’Regan ordered Burke to be arrested and brought into court” reports National Review.
In court, Burke continued to insist on showing up to school teach, saying, “I love my school. I am here today because I would not call a boy a girl,” the outlet reported.
Not going to work and teaching “is not something I will do. It is in violation of my conscience,” Burke added, claiming his suspension was invalid and that he would’ve had to “commit an act of gross misconduct” for it to be justified, according to the outlet.
“It is reprehensible that anyone’s religious beliefs could be taken as a ground for misconduct or gross misconduct,” Burke said. “Were I to obey the order of the board of management and the order of the court, I would have to accept that sticking by my belief in male and female is wrong.”
“It is not something I will do. It is in violation of my conscience,” he added, saying, “Were I to go into the school and bow to something I know to be manifestly wrong, it would be a shame and a disgrace on my part.”
Justice Michael Quinn ordered Burke be committed to Mountjoy Prison and remain there indefinitely “until he purges his contempt or until further order of this court.”
Burke refused to comply with the court’s order after the judge’s decision, saying, “I cannot purge my contempt by holding my Christian beliefs in contempt.”
