Surprise! Loretta Lynch Belonged To An Anti-semitic Pro-Terrorist Group at Harvard
In my last article on Loretta Lynch, President Obama's pick for attorney general, I revealed quite a bit of information, including how she was vetted by none other than Al Sharpton.
We also saw how she is virulently against voter ID laws, has an exaggerated sense of racial grievance, and favors race-based standards and selective harassment and prosecutions, i.e towards 'white southern schools' as opposed to all others.
And finally, in a speech she made, we saw how she equated violent terrorism with. 'fighting for your rights' and a Soviet trained self-admitted terrorist like Nelson Mandela with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a true civil rights icon.
After that bit of information, my sarcastic comment was that she probably hearts Che and Arafat too.
It turns out I was entirely correct.
During her time at Harvard Law, Ms. Lynch was a proud member in good standing of the Harvard Black Law Students Association (BLSA) from 1981-1984 when she was a student.
Aside from endorsing a number of frankly racist positions, the group, led by one Mohammed Kenyatta had a major love affair with Yasser Arafat and the violently anti-Israel PLO - and remember, this was pre-Oslo, when they were still considered a terrorist group.The BLSA brought members of the PLO and their allies to campus every year Lynch was a member.
Not only that,but when confronted by Jewish groups on campus protesting this,(which included Allan Dershowitz) Kenyatta and his cohorts reacted with behavior and statement that were borderline anti-semitic.
This was too much even for the politically correct Harvard Crimson which condemned the group's behavior on one of these occasions in 1984:
"The Black Law Students Association (BALSA) committed an unjustifiable and discriminatory violation of student liberties last week when it denied Jewish students an opportunity to participate in a campus forum featuring a representative of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).
More than 30 Jewish Law Students Association (JLSA) members attended the panel discussion, outnumbering members of BALSA and the Third World Coalition, the event’s sponsors. But after opening the forum to questions from the floor, BALSA moderator Muhammad I. Kenyatta refused to recognize any of the white hands raised in the audience. BALSA and TWC members were to be given priority, he announced, proceeding to call on a Black student who hadn’t raised his hand.
We defend the PLO’s right to appear in an open forum at Harvard. All groups have a right to present their views; had Kenyatta permitted all students to challenge the speaker with critical questions, the ensuing discussion might have provided a constructive exchange of ideas and opinions.
By stifling debate, however, Kenyatta reduced the event to little more than a propaganda platform for a terrorist organization that has pledged to destroy the State of Israel. His refusal to open the floor to all students views showed a glaring disregard for the principles of free discussion that are vital to an enlightened academic community."
But wait, there's more.
The group made notorious efforts to blackmail white churches for 'reparations', and Kenyatta's specialty was to 'invade' churches and cause damage and chaos.
They spilled blood on the altar of one church, took over church offices, dumped out collection plates, damaged church property, and and on several occasions took over community centers and trashed and vandalized them. One can only presume that Loretta Lynch took part in these activities.
Ordinarily, I think you could make the argument that a lot of people do stupid things when they're young.
Except Lynch wasn't all that young when this occurred, being in her mid to late twenties.And the speech she made earlier this year that I linked to here tells us her ideology hasn't changed much since then.
Like Eric Holder, it looks like Loretta Lynch is an excellent example of what Emmet Tyrell Jr. famously called a 'coat and tie' radical, someone whom dresses in costume and bores from within.
No wonder Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer raised no objection to delaying her confirmation hearings until after the new congress gets seated in January.
