Zion-Nazi, noun. A Zionist supporter of Israel who acts like the Nazis who committed genocide against the Jews 75 years ago. Like their Nazi forbearers, Zion-Nazis actively harass, slander, dox, blacklist and in some cases physically attack those who dare speak out against Israel’s genocidal war against Palestine.
Zion-Nazis MUST BE called out and exposed.
Bill Ackman is the billionaire owner of Pershing Square Capital Management, a graduate of Harvard University and a significant donor to that elite Ivy League school. When 34 student organizations at Harvard published a letter that situated the October 7 attack by Hamas in the decades of brutal oppression of Palestinians by Israel’s apartheid regime and warned of impending massive retaliatory violence by Israel, this Zion-Nazi threw his weight around as a major donor to demand that all individual members of the student groups be suspended and their names be made public so that potential employers would not hire them. Ackman called for monitoring students’ Slack message boards and disciplining those who posted messages supportive of Palestine or critical of Israel.
When Harvard President Claudine Gay rejected the demand to publish the students’ names, Ackman went politically gunning for her. Seizing on congressional hearings in which Republicans and Democrats beat up on Gay and on the presidents of UPenn and MIT for their “failure” to stomp out pro-Palestine activity, Ackman publicly demanded that all three “resign in disgrace.” Then, in collaboration with other fascists, this Zion-Nazi used his X platform to amp up extremely overblown charges of “plagiarism” against Gay, and, with no evidence, claimed that Gay was hired only because she was Black, not based on merit. Ackman even called for Harvard Board members who defended Gay to resign. On January 2, Gay was forced to resign from her post (UPenn President Magill had resigned previously).
These attacks by Ackman (and others) on student protesters and university administrators have had a serious effect of spreading fear and tamping down campus support for Palestine. According to Fortune magazine, “He’s just getting started.”
