    Its not the words, it is the target. An interesting experiment would be to post the same tweets but rather than “threaten” a judge, “threaten” a Palestinian accused of attempting to kill an Israeli.

    Two recent incidents in academia show how weak deans act on “phony, made-up complaints.”  Two recent examples:

    1. NYTimes has an article about an adjunct prof. who got a war deal, even after she did everything right. Showed a photo of Prophet Muhammad giving trigger warnings and invited students to leave, but a Muslim student sat there and only after class complained and that professor was fired.

    2.      The 29-year just retired head of HRW was offered  a fellowship at an institute in the Harvard Kennedy school that was fully supported by the institute. It was disapproved by the dean (presumably under pressure from big funders) because the former head of HRW was "anti-Israel." This is the same dean who ripped a fellowship from Chelsea Manning a few years back. This dean has been described as lacking a backbone.
