Emotions vs. Facts

It seems to me that the tactic of anti-divestment groups on campuses to focus on threats to the feelings of (some) Jewish students has far more traction than it should because of decades of attempts by some segments of the "left" to codify "hate speech" and to ban it on campuses. My point is simply that one should consider the possibility that the success of campaigns to censor speech that upsets some groups that have traditionally been subject to discrimination and violence has created an atmosphere that legitimizes the pro-Zionist groups attempts to stigmatize the proponents of BDS.
