even ultra-politically correct lefties are throwing Jennifer Peto under the bus

December 10, 2010

Karen Mock is well-known in Toronto-area “diversity” circles. She lectures on the subject regularly. I first met her a few years ago, in 2007, when she was the organizer of an anti-racism conference, and I showed up on her podium to question the point of the proceedings, and make fun of a few people who needed to be taken down a peg. She stood up after I spoke, and told everyone in the crowd to ignore me — which caused some friction, but we’ve since become email correspondents.
Fast forward to this week. Following my column on Jennifer Peto and her OISE master’s thesis (“The Victimhood of the Powerful: White Jews, Zionism and the Racism of Hegemonic Holocaust Education”), I happened upon this Karen Mock press release. It’s good to see that even very politically correct types such as Mock draw the line at the likes of Peto.
