It looks like Angry Studies are alive and well at Guilford College. They have gotten Duke Fever (a desire to persecute the innocent in the name of some cause).
As evidence in the case is coming out, it tends to support the idea that the Palestinians have turned an assault by them into an attack on them. I wonder if this is common to the Palestinian narrative?
Not to worry, the students are behind the Palestinians all the way. You seeGuilford College a Quaker School is loosely affiliated with Quakers’ Friends School in Ramallah. And, there are demos.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A group of UNC-Chapel Hill students held a solidarity vigil to support three Palestinian students involved in a campus brawl that happened January 20th at Guilford College. Six of the school's football players were charged with assault.Probably a good thing too as the charges are not holding up well even when all we have to go on is semi-corroborated rumor and barely supported speculation.
The UNC-Chapel Hill student group is called “Solidarity with Palestine through Education and Action at Carolina” and the student organization formed just one week after the Palestinian students onGuilford college's campus say they were attacked. Freshman international studies student Haley Koch helped organize Friday's rally at The Pitt at UNC.
"No other universities have come out and supported these students and this has been a very difficult time for them and so we want to express that support to them," explained Koch.
They're also encouraging other UNC students to get involved by signing a petition. The petition is asking Guilford College to fully investigate and recognize the incident as a hate crime. It’s also calling for changes to the college’s Code of Conduct.Even if it was the Palestinians doing the hating? Some how I doubt it.
