An April 21 Sun Sentinel article, “University on Edge,” details the confusion and dissension on the Florida Atlantic University campus. In addition to the embarrassment over the GEO prison group’s proposal to buy the naming rights to FAU’s stadium, an Islamist student organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, has been active in anti-Israel demonstrations and harassing students.
Now we have a student, Stephanie Rosendorf, claiming that former Congressman Allen West is a threat to her and other students on campus, when according to West, they have been harassing his wife. Radicals don’t appreciate reciprocity when it comes to menacing other people.
On April 17, Tom Trento and I debated Rosendorf about these FAU issues at an event hosted by La’Dor Va’dor synagogue and Rabbi Barry Silver. Rosendorf will be attending Georgetown University Law Center next semester. My cat can now apply there. The university and Students for Justice in Palestine refused to send representatives to the debate. Rosendorf told the audience that West has threatened her and others, but did little to detail or offer evidence of these “threats.” I followed up by actually reading Facebook comments made by West and found they were not threatening to anyone at all.
I completely understand the Alinsky tactics and have no issue with the insidious and incessant personal attacks by the left against me. However, I am warning you, end your harassment of my wife Angela. The students from Florida Atlantic University who have gone to my wife’s office, stalked her at the FAU Board of Trustee meetings, and sent letters to her company headquarters, end it now. This is not a threat, it is a promise that if Angela calls and tells me of one more incident, you will face me, the side of me that you do not want to see. My wife Angela is an American citizen and if you believe that you can intimidate her to surrender her freedoms you are mistaken. Those left wing groups and lawyers associated with these individuals supporting their antics, I recommend you disassociate yourself. How dare you animals attack my wife and her professional reputation. This is your one and only advisory notice.
Any husband would react like West did in defending a wife who had allegedly been bullied, threatened, stalked and screamed at by a bunch of spoiled, arrogant and nasty children.
At the April 17 debate, we confronted Rosendorf about the “stomp Jesus” classroom assignment led by FAU Professor Deandre Poole. The aspiring attorney’s response was that Poole had his constitutional rights violated and Ryan Rotela, the student who had found the assignment offensive, had no such right to confront his teacher. Of course, Rosendorf, a student Democratic leader, claimed that Poole’s position as vice chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party had nothing to do with her support of this man. A lawyer in training!
