Well, a weepy Jewish student anyway. She’s obviously a really nice and sensitive person, but in Norman’s world, she’s a viper.
Pay attention, kids! This is what happens when you espouse bitter anti-Jewish views (yup, his Holocaust “industry” research qualifies as anti-Jewish) and loonie anti-Israel views (like calling it a Satanic state!) that are so on the fringe that you get criticized severely, eventually become ostracized, lose the possibility of tenure and at every turn become more and more doctrinaire with your radical views because you’re really, really, really angry.
But don’t be too concerned, because there is no shortage of MSU centers around the country or other professors who dislike Israel and both appear to be willing to book such people for book tours, for mucho dinero according to rumors.
That’s right, bring him out and you get to see the students you don’t like, the ones who don’t think the Israelis are Nazis, and especially those who have the temerity to ask a public question, roasted by the good doctor who has the bigger mic, the louder voice and more knowledge since he’s an academic.
This video is particularly enjoyable. You’ll notice how Norman complains about Jews using the “Holocaust card” and shedding “crocodile tears” about the Holocaust and then uses his parents and family, who are Holocaust victims, to browbeat the audience into submission and respect in order to explain why Israel resembles Nazis.
I know, let’s promote the guy’s book!
