“Stop Videotaping People” – PSU Marxism Instructor Tries to Shut Down Free Press

elasady close

Dateline November 17, 2012 – Portland Oregon: At an event held at Portland State University Cafeteria that is listed at as a “Public Event” on facebook, a Marxism Instructor tries to shut down the free press. Wael Elasady, who teaches a class in Marxism at Portland State University is one of the organizers for the event: a controversial poetry reading and Palestinian activism meeting. The syllabus for his class reads in part:

“The onset of the Arab Spring revolts in European capitals against austerity, and the emergence of Occupy Wall Street here in the US have made the need for understanding revolutionary political theories is [sic] more urgent than ever. This course is designed to introduce students to the basic concepts of Marxist thought with an emphasis on the ***practical application*** …” [emphasis added]

Elasady notices the camera, walks over and puts his hand in front of it. “Stop videotaping people…” he commands. After some push back from the reporter he backs down. #orwellian.

    I lol’d at the idea of the person going around constantly videotaping people thinking others asking him to stop is Orwellian.

    Why? A citizen not being able to exercise his right of Freedom of the Press on a public campus is not Orwellian? Elasady is * embarrassed* by the fact that we have exposed his organization as being made up of the racist, anti-American, anti-gay people that they are, and that they use public funds to promote their ilk. Just Google up his friend Neil Thomas Loehlein the *FORMER* president of the ISO caught on tape yelling anti-gay, anti-American remarks in the public square, and standing with those who yelled racist remarks. It’s all on tape, which is precisely what Elasady’s problem is: he doesn’t like getting caught. Too damn bad about him. It was my pleasure to recently video and report on their anti-gay buddy anarchist Johnny Christopher Wells brought up on felony charges down at the courthouse recently. Oh is he your buddy too Comrade? tsk tsk tsk.
