Gonzaga invites anti-Israel activist Angela Davis on Oct 25th

Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against Israel activist Angela Davis will be speaking at Gonzaga October 25th according to the University’s news release and some students responded by distributing fact sheets on Ms. Davis according to the Gonzaga Bulletin.

Imagine the GU Diversity administrators trying to figure out how to supply Conservative students a safe space on campus or fearing that they might Rise Up or Resist or even Protest Ms. Davis’s connections to the international Hamas connected BDS movement.

Well they don’t have to worry about it because Conservative students endorse Free Speech. Even if it’s an Alt-Left speaker like Davis. The speech isn’t supposed to be about Apartheid Israel but you can bet that the local BDS activists will certainly be there in solidarity.

Ms. Davis came out as a Lesbian in 1997. That’s fine but why the obsession over Israel? Does the Feminist movement care about the slavery and assault on women and little girls in the Middle East by Islamists?

Arab countries including Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, in addition to the Palestinian territories, all had more than 95 percent of respondents answer no to the same question in the Pew survey. But then there are Israelis, who, although divided in their attitudes, are undeniably more accepting of the LGBT community than their Arab neighbors. Forty-seven percent of Israelis responded no to whether society should accept homosexuality, and 40 percent responded yes.

We hear nothing from these activists about the deaths of hundreds of thousands in Syria and the displacement and suffering of millions, the tossing of gay men off rooftops in Iraq, the beheadings and amputations in Saudi Arabia, and that country’s flogging of its citizens engaged in “sexual deviance.”  On all that, they are silent.

Cooney said that it’s important for people consider Davis beyond the context of her controversial fame.
