EPISODE #93: “Anti-semitism on campus. Mexican lounging suits.”
It’s sweltering outside but cool as ever in the Twilight Lounge, where Goldbrener has donned a Mexican Lounging Suit and Rosen is serving up an ice cold Coca-Cola. This week, the boys battle various respiratory ailments while discussing outrageous clothing, Russian mobsters, Bernie Sanders’ sketchy math and this week’s big question:
Is the UC’s recent amendment to its Principles Against Intolerance policy Good for the Jews?
Included in this discussion are questions regarding the nature of anti-semitism on campus, the efficacy of a policy which doesn’t include any mechanism for enforcement, why the UC system felt it necessary to act and, perhaps most ominously to those who count on Jews to be intellectual giants and physical weaklings, Goldbrener’s plans to counter anti-semitism. Hint: it resembles the final scene of “Revenge of the Nerds.”
