    “How long it goes on, I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.” (Ben Shapiro Radio Show)

    “How long it goes on, I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.” (Ben Shapiro Radio Show)

    My apprearance on the Ben Shapiro radio show: “I think this is a panic. I think this is a rage. I think they are looking for somebody to hate on and I’ve become a convenient figure for them to do that.”

    Listen to this article

    I appeared earlier today on the Ben Shapiro Radio Show to talk about the panic sweeping the country as it is playing out at Cornell Law School. The audio is below.

    You can see my prior posts for background:

    Here’s a short excerpt:

    I think this is just a rage and a fury. I think this is pent up frustrations that they’re taking out on me because they have this nice, nice, you know, bubble thought bubble where everybody agrees them and then somebody comes along and doesn’t agree with them. And therefore they view that as a danger to them. So I think this is a panic. I think this is a rage. I think they are looking for somebody to hate on and I’ve become a convenient figure for them to do that. How long it goes on. I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.

    Shabbat shalom to you, Prof. Jacobson! You have many friends who support you.

    Check out Prof WM’s wiki page. It’s surprisingly ‘neutral’:

    Everything is just cover for the communist revolution. Amazing how much they want all power and all control.

    I feel for you, Professor. This has got to be hard. I hope tenure is helping and serving its purpose, and I hope SOMEONE at Cornell, and someone in Ithaca, have their heads screwed on right, and push back as well.

    Do they want to turn into Evergreen? Seriously.

    I corresponded with the Cornell Dean. He wrote he may have been wrong about your post. Hmmm

    Don’t you dare quit. You are right, and you are persuasive.

    Remember Shakespeare’s famous quote “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” from Henry VI

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let%27s_kill_all_the_lawyers

    Although this part is alleged to be controversial, it’s pretty clear in context: evil people want to get rid of those who protect the rights of their prey.

    Something I never understood in either college or law school is why, in the name of all that’s holy, am I supposed to listen to, or bother to be impressed by what my fellow students think.

    My fellow students were allegedly there to learn, not teach. Why should I give any weight to the opinion of a student? If I need guidance, I should pick somebody with more experience and more training than I had. My fellow students did not qualify as teachers for me.

    Prof. Jacobson, please remember the competent students. Whether they know it yet, or not, they are looking for you. Talk to them. They are there, even if they do not tell you.

    William Rehnquist came to my law school, and some of the students wanted to have a boycott of his speech. They didn’t think he was worthy of the school. I said “He is Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, and I want to hear what he has to say.” So, I sat in an auditorium with some vacant seats, and listened.

    At the end, I should have walked down that aisle to shake his hand. At the time, I did not have sense enough to know that this would have been welcome.

    Forgive the quiet ones their diffidence.
