John Leo has written about the way that palestinian/ Muslim "certification" as a victimized poeple by the PC elite is causing problems for Jews on college campuses across the country. Is it a Campus Hate Parade?
An op-ed writer at The Detroit News asked, "When did anti-Semitism lose its seat on the bus of political correctness?" He meant, why doesn't the PC culture protect Jews? The answer is that seats on the PC bus are reserved for certified victim groups, but Jews don't count. They have been historical victims for centuries, but they are doing too well in America to qualify as officially aggrieved. And as Muslims have been welcomed into the grievance culture, the status of Jews on campus, the stronghold of PC, has become problematic.
