[November 3, 2023] This article may surprise most of you but not those who closely study young people. I was surprised, too. The New York Times reported the results of a poll conducted with students of the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgetown University. They asked who is “the most outstanding personality in the world today?” Hitler led the poll, followed by Pope Pius XII in second place and US President Roosevelt taking third.
Interestingly, the New York Times was ranked as the “favorite newspaper,” and Hoya (the Georgetown campus newspaper) ranked second. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt easily won the title of “most outstanding woman in the world today,” with Queen Elizabeth nosing out Madam Chiang Kai-Shek for second place.
Suppose we were to take a poll from Georgetown University in the College of Arts and Sciences today. In that case, I’m sure Hamas would rank as “the most outstanding political organization in the world today.” Of course, no one dares to conduct such a survey because they fear what the results might say about our advanced educational institutions. A severe backlash would undoubtedly happen. True enough, our educational system lacks the cojones to find out.
Our universities are in the grips of a wave of anti-Semitism and harassment of Jews on campus. Some pushback is occurring in “elite law firms,” as shown in a letter to university deans dated November 1, 2023.
“As employers who recruit from each of your law schools, we look to you to ensure your students who hope to join our firms after graduation are prepared to be an active part of workplace communities that have zero tolerance policies for any form of discrimination or harassment, much less the kind that has been taking place on some law school campuses.” – signed by 24 Wall Street Law firms
The message is simple. Law college deans must get a grip on the anti-Semitism they have let run rampant at their schools.
Indeed, college students are weak-minded simpletons who parrot their favorite meme of the day. However, everyone (students, faculty, and deans) must recognize that there are consequences to their actions. Remember that just before America entered World War II, students believed Hitler led the polls for most outstanding personality in the world. And by that time, the world war had been ongoing for more than a year and a half.
