Social media has become an incredibly powerful propaganda tool. For all the screaming about fake news and disinformation from the leftards, they sure do fall for bullshit pretty goddam easily.

There is a lesson to be learned here. Refugees.

Are there any instance in the recent past where unwanted refugees eventually settled in a relatively small region, took up arms against those who took them in and declared themselves a nation that has been perpetually at war and growing their landmass ever since?

Nope. And there isn't now. Unless we choose to ignore why so many Jews left the region in the first place. And unless I'm expected to believe that Arabs/muslims founded the city of Jerusalem 3000 years ago.

Really? I thought it was Trump himself, parroted by his marching morons, who popularized "FAKE NEWS!"
We pronounce it differently up here, misinformation & disinformation, & I can’t even remember who started it but we’ve got legislation against it…or it’s coming anyway. It all runs together…& somebody gets to decide what is misinformation and disinformation.

The University of Toronto (UofT) has warned pro-Palestinian activists that they have 24 hours to accept a proposal to end a three-week protest camp on the schools’ downtown campus – or risk being treated as trespassers and potentially face police action.

In a statement Meric Gertler, the university president, cited harassment, discrimination and lack of inclusion as reasons the encampment needs to be removed.

“From day one, our goal has been to achieve a peaceful and sustainable resolution to the unauthorized encampment … the encampment must end,” said Gertler.
According to a statement from U of T leadership, saying “glory to all martyrs,” telling Jewish students to “go back to Europe” and that they are Hamas’s “next targets” is a narrative that does not cross their “high threshold for expression,” regardless of if these remarks are “uncomfortable and offensive.”

If glorifying martyrs (i.e. suicide bombers, militant radicals) and telling Jewish students to go back to where the Holocaust unfolded constitutes valid debate, then our institutions have truly lost all sense of ethical integrity and sanity.
Every chant for an intifada and every sign equating the Star of David with a swastika is not just distasteful, it’s an incitement to violence. This rhetoric has historical precedents — the gas chambers of Auschwitz and the pogroms of Kishinev began with similar hateful speech. These comparisons are harsh, but history teaches us that harsh realities often start with subtle signs.

Universities, once bastions of intellectual freedom and moral clarity, are now the staging grounds for this toxic revival. Administrators might cloak their inaction in the guise of free speech, but we know the truth: They are either complicit in the spread of this hatred, or they are staggeringly indifferent. Silence and inaction are forms of endorsement. There is no middle ground. You are either against this blatant hatred, or you are on the side of the perpetrators.
