The recent anti-Israel and pro-Hamas demonstrations at Columbia University have seen calls for a double Holocaust – not a second Holocaust, but a double one.

In footage that emerged from the Columbia hate orgy over the weekend, one of the protestors yelled at Jewish students and counter-protestors, "Remember the 7th of October! That will happen not one more time, not five more times, not 10 more times, not 100 more times, not 1,000 more times, but 10,000 times!"

About 1,200 people were murdered on October 7, 2023. 10,000 times 1,200 comes out to 12 million people.

This protester called for the extermination of double the number of Jews who were murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust, and more than two-thirds of the entire Jewish population worldwide.

Not to be outdone, another protester screamed, "Are you ready? 7th of October is about to be every day. Every day. 7th of October is going to be every day for you."

It does not look like this man wants the killing to ever stop as long as a single Jewish person still breathes anywhere.

Other protesters held signs calling on Hamas to murder Jewish students.

We should not need further proof that the rabid anti-Israel and pro-Hamas protestors who have taken to the streets across the world since October 7 are horrible people. It was obvious the moment celebrations of the Hamas atrocities broke out in Sydney Australia and the streets of New York. Chants of "gas the Jews" or "where’s the Jews" left no room for doubt as to the sinister intentions of those who said them.

The massacre was celebrated by a member of Columbia’s own staff. Politics and history teacher Joseph Massad called the worst massacre of the Jewish people since the Holocaust “awesome,” “astonishing,” “astounding,” and a “stunning victory.”

Amazingly, Massad, thanks to his tenure, is still employed at Columbia.

For the last six months, we have been gaslit and told that ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ is not antisemitic or genocidal but merely a call for peace and freedom.

We have been told that these constant displays of hate are merely exercises of free speech against Israel and any criticism of them is an attempt to silence critics of Israel.

This is even as antisemitic incidents rose over 300%, as security around Jewish institutions had to be increased, and as police in London warned a visibly Jewish man that his very existence was triggering to the anti-Israel mob.

A rabbi at Columbia has warned Jewish students to go home and stay off campus for their own safety, and before that, Jewish students were already requesting permission to learn remotely rather than risk violence from those who so openly wish to murder them.

And still there are those who defend those who call to murder Jews in New York City as mere critics of Israel, who decry any attempt to combat this naked hatred as the silencing of legitimate criticism.

Those who constantly defame Israel with the charge of “genocide” have nothing but good things to say about those who openly call for the murder of literally millions of Jews, of twice as many Jews as the Nazis succeeded in killing. Because that is the point of the genocide accusation in the first place, to keep Israel from being able to defend itself against a real genocide and leave Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, and their Iranian masters free to murder every last Jewish person in the State of Israel.

Calling for 10,000 October 7s or the murder of Jewish students should cross a line that makes everyone step back and truly take stock of what is happening. There has already been violence, such as the Jewish student reporter who was stabbed in the eye by an anti-Israel demonstrator with a flag.

There is a famous sketch by the British comedy show That Mitchell and Webb Look in which two Nazi soldiers notice the skulls on their caps and ask, “are we the baddies?”

If the useful idiots who have joined the antisemitic chorus supporting Hamas’s genocidal war to wipe out the Jewish people would ever have a moment of self-reflection and realize just how evil the people they have joined forces with are, this is a question they would ask themselves.

“Are we the baddies?” If you’re on the side of someone who calls for 10,000 October 7s, if you’re on the side of someone who carries a sign pointing at Jewish students and calling on Hamas to murder them, then yes, you are.

And at this point, more than six months after it became clear who the modern day Nazis are and with such open calls for an updated Holocaust, you don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt.
