Critics of MSU Radicalism at UC Irvine Respond

Bruce Blumberg, a professor who oversees “Student Experience” at the University of California-Irvine, remonstrated (in a posted e-mail) to a recent Pajamas Media article by Reut Cohen and Jonathon Movroydis. The two reaffirm that UCI administrators have caved to the campus’s extremist Muslim Student Union, whose members are terrorism-friendly and America/Israel-averse.

An august display of discourse at UCI, to be sure.
