Is MSU-YAF Anti-Semitic?

YAF Watch
Michigan State University Young Americans for Freedom have established their Anti-Muslim and Anti-Hindu ideology, and believe in a narrow form of fundamental Christianity, to the exclusion of other Christians. However, now YAF seems to be taking on an Anti-Semitic Agenda.

YAF announced they are bringing Nick Griffin, leader of the British National Party, to campus. The British National Party (BNP) is political party that supports white supremacy and anti-immigrant stances. Griffin himself is also a well known Anti-Semite and Holocaust denier. The BBC did a special report on the BNP and Nick Griffin. Read more ...

The majority of the MSU YAF is not overtly anti-Semitic - just ignorant of the centuries old anti-Semitic philosophy fueling the European Right. One should not be surprised that a canard so carefully constructed that it brought down several European governments should hold sway over MSU’s farm-raised cognoscenti. It’s disheartening that these students, favored with the opportunities provided by a university education, should be so ignorant of world history. I suspect that their world-view is strongly shaped by a mid-West religiosity that disrespects all but the one true Christian faith. This populist fundamentalism has inspired generations of political malcontents. “History,” said Thomas Jefferson “furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.”
