Remember this guy? I made him face of the day December last year and Whaleoil wrote about him here and here.?Professor Poynting reacted to our articles by sending us a legal letter?where he accused us of defaming him by calling him anti-semitic.

Now, three months later, we have some news. It involves a resignation, a refusal to write an apology letter, the Tertiary Education Union and the New Zealand Jewish Council. For the full details read our 8.30 post.

Face of the day

Bahar Mustafa

Bahar Mustafa is alleged to have made the tweet from an official Goldsmiths account

?Today’s face of the day Bahar Mustafa is totally oblivious to her utter hypocrisy. She is an outstanding example of the mindset that says, it is a sin when others do it but when I do it is it totally okay and just a joke. Add to the mix the fact that her position is all about promoting the exact opposite of her own personal actions and you have a situation that only left wing supporters could possibly be deluded enough to get behind. The cherry on the top is the fact that the hashtag created by her supporters on social media has been hijacked and used against her.

A Student diversity officer at the centre of a sexist and racist row has attracted support from leftfield equality campaigners… which has backfired spectacularly.

Controversial Bahar Mustafa was ordered to resign after tweeting the hashtag #KillAllWhiteMen and banning whites and men from a meeting at Goldsmiths University.The vice-president for welfare and diversity at the institution?s student union claims she?s not racist, describing her language as “in-jokes” within minority groups.

As nearly 18,000 critics signed a petition ordering her to be sacked, supporters have started using the hashtag #supportbaharmustafa.
