Dr. Anne Hendershott, professor of Sociology and director of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life, describes the growing presence of anti-semitism on American college campuses.
As Anti-Semitism continues to grow unchecked on colleges campuses, and within a small cohort currently serving in the United States Congress, Belgium offers a glimpse into a frightening future for us if the hateful rhetoric is allowed to escalate. During the same week that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) complained about undue Jewish influence in this country and the Jewish “allegiance to a foreign country,” a Carnival parade in the city of Aalst, Belgium on March 3rd, featured anti-Semitic floats with vicious caricatures of stereotypically Jewish figures.
Dr. Anne Hendershott is a professor in the Psychology, Sociology, and Social Work Department at Franciscan University of Steubenville and is one of the nation’s leading Catholic sociologists. Author of numerous books including The Politics of Abortion (2006), Hendershott currently serves as the Pope John Paul II Fellow in Student Development at the Cardinal Newman Society’s Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education. She regularly writes about Catholic issues for The Wall Street Journal, Catholic World Report, and other secular and religious outlets. She is frequently interviewed by The Washington Times, National Review Online, EWTN Radio Network, and other news outlets.
