Stupid Girl Makes Stupid Claims, Stupidly

Just caught wind of this story breaking out of York University in Canada. 22-year-old senior Sarah Grunfeld is campaigning for Professor Cameron Johnson to be fired. Why? In brief, he uttered the sentence “All Jews should be sterilized” as explicit example of an unacceptable opinion.

Grunfeld, who through some unimaginable idiocy is standing by her case, has acknowledged that she may have misunderstood the professor, but nonetheless maintains that “The words, ‘Jews should be sterilized’ still came out of his mouth, so regardless of the context I still think that’s pretty serious.”

By the way, Professor Johnson is Jewish and has been teaching at the University for over 30 years.
