Did Brandeis Student With ‘No Sympathy’ For Dead Cops Learn At Anita Hill’s Knee?

Anita Hill is a member of the notorious African and Afro-American studies department at Brandeis University.

Khadijah Lynch, the student who recently took to Twitter to celebrate the brutal, execution-style murder of two New York Police Department officers, reportedly majors in African studies at Brandeis — a fancypants school in the suburbs of Boston with an endowment larger than the gross domestic product of several small Pacific island nations.

“i have no sympathy for the nypd officers who were murdered today,” Lynch spouted on Twitter on Dec. 20. (RELATED: Fancypants, College Student: ‘No Sympathy’ For Brutally Executed Cops)

“lmao, all i just really dont have sympathy for the cops who were shot. i hate this racist fucking country,” the junior also tweeted.

Hill is famous, of course, as a footnote in American history for alleging in 1991 that Clarence Thomas shouldn’t be a Supreme Court Justice because, she claimed, he asked her on a date and told bawdy jokes — fully a decade before his Supreme Court nomination.

Thomas flatly denied the allegations. Hill’s long-delayed claims generated much outrage on the left but ultimately failed to derail the Senate’s confirmation of Thomas.

The Brandeis department of African and Afro-American studies now describes Hill as among its “affiliated faculty.”

The Brandeis faculty guide lists Hill, a Yale Law School graduate, as the instructor for two courses: “Race and the Law” and “Social Justice and the Obama Administration.”

“Anita F. Hill teaches courses on gender, race, social policy and legal history,” the faculty guide further explains.

Hill’s lofty, lengthy, 17-word, full title at Brandeis is “senior advisor to the provost and professor of social policy, law, and women’s, gender and sexuality studies.”

While Hill has been largely obscure since 1991, Lynch rose briefly to infamy just before Christmas after another Brandeis student, Daniel Mael, publicized the inflammatory tweets.

Instead of advancing her fanatical views, Lynch responded by hastily erasing her entire Twitter page. She has since returned to Twitter. However, her tweets are now invitation-only.

Lynch also resigned her title as the undergraduate department representative in the African and Afro-American studies department — apparently at the behest of concerned faculty members.

Brandeis African studies department chairman Chad Williams had quickly released a statement declaring that the department “does not promote nor condones a disregard for the loss of human life” after Lynch’s tweets hit the news.

“The deaths of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu are a tragedy and should be treated with proper respect,” Williams also said.

A throng of angry Brandeis students then criticized Mael after he publicly cited Lynch’s public tweets. Some students suggested that the Brandeis administration should punish him. (RELATED: Students Rally Around Peer With ‘No Sympathy’ For Dead Cops)

Brandeis senior Michael Piccione, a member of the 2014-15 student conduct board, sent an urgent email to the president of Brandeis, senior administrators, radical leftist professors and students suggesting that Mael “has potentially violated multiple parts” of a Brandeis code of student conduct including “stalking.”

“Khadijah specifically requested that her personal comments be removed from the website and the article in question taken down, but her wishes were ignored,” Piccione whined.

Previously, on Dec. 1, Lynch tweeted critically about Brandeis, where one year of tuition, mandatory fees and room and board costs about $60,300 (a little over $6,000 more than America’s median household income of $53,891).

“a social justice themed institution grounded in zionism. word. thats a fucking fanny dooley,” she griped.

On Nov. 25, Lynch wrote: “the fact that black people have not burned this country down is beyond me.”
