Anti-Jewish Threats Couldn’t Possibly Be a “Trigger,” Could They?

NYU Jewish Students Targeted with Fake Eviction Notices | National Review Online

“Being very straightforward, this made me feel targeted and unsafe in my own dorm room and I know others feel exactly the same as myself,” a student told the Times. “I understand free speech rights but if this was targeted solely to Jewish students then this appears to be of a more threatening nature rather than informative.”

I don’t suppose that one could make the argument that these sorts of things might act as “triggers” for these kids to recall that millions of their grandparents and great-grandparents were gasses and burned to death solely because they were Jews, by German Fascists who felt the same way about them as these Palestinian supporters do.

Because we have to reserve triggers for really important and frightening stuff like statues of men in white underwear.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
