Subject: Oberlin College stands behind anti-Semitic professor

Oberlin College President Marvin Krislov has announced that he is supporting a professor accused of anti-Semitism.

Joy Karega, an assistant professor of rhetoric and composition, has claimed that Jewish bankers control the world's economy and have been behind every war for centuries, that “Zionist” orchestrated both the 9/11 attacks and the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo, and that Israel is responsible for ISIS.

Many of these remarks were made on Facebook, Twitter and Karega's blog. She has since changed the privacy settings on her accounts to limit access.

Though he did not mention Karega by name, Krislov wrote a letter to the Oberlin community about “selected screen shots of an Oberlin assistant professor's personal social media posts [that were characterized] as anti-Semitic.”

While acknowledging the pain her messages caused, he insisted that they fall under academic freedom.

Imagine that: a notoriously left-leaning institution actually defending free speech. I mean, it is snowing today...
