California teachers and left-wing activists are trying to implement critical race theory (CRT) indoctrination in Los Angeles schools by hijacking ethnic-studies courses. JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan Tobin discussed a lawsuit brought by the Deborah Project public-interest law firm on behalf of Jewish parents and teachers against a group promoting “Liberated Ethnic Studies.”
According to Tobin, the lawsuit shows how this group and their allies in the teacher’s union are bypassing the law requiring public discussion of curricula and violating the rights of Jewish students, teachers and parents by promoting anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist course material. But above all, the controversy illustrates how these activists are seeking to do exactly what liberal apologists claim isn’t happening: their anti-Semic version of ethnic studies is a form of CRT indoctrination.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.” Matthew 24:9
As Tobin notes, that’s not merely a disgrace. If it is allowed to stand by the courts, “it will legitimize Jew-hatred in a way that has never happened before on American soil.”
He’s then joined by Asaf Romirowsky, executive director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East and the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa. Romirowsky discussed the way the Middle East Studies Association’s embrace of the BDS movement illustrates how the far left has hijacked the discipline throughout the academic world.
