UNC lecturer Kylie Broderick is only beginning her career in academia—she is a Ph.D. student in history at the Chapel Hill campus—but she is already notorious for her anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist views and her total lack of hesitation in injecting those views into her teaching.
For the past several years, Broderick has taught a course at Chapel Hill on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the flagrant Jew hatred expressed by the lecturer has made national headlines.
In a series of public tweets from 2020, Broderick stated directly that she “find[s] it difficult to do role-playing games in class” because “the ‘2 sides’ of most subjects we cover are b/t colonizers/imperialists & oppressed native peoples” and “by ‘2 sides’ I mean there is only 1 legitimate side—the oppressed—versus imperialist propaganda.”
“I don’t ever want to encourage them to believe there is reason to take on good faith the oppressive ideologies of American and Western imperialism, Zionists, & autocrats,” she added.
Broderick has used every tool at her disposal to show her disdain for Israel and the Jewish people, even scheduling a quiz on Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement.
The lecturer has mocked the very idea that she could restrain her biases in the classroom, stating in a November 2021 video that the UNC administration “spent a good deal of time examining my ability to be objective, whatever that means” but that she believes professors ought to “teach justice in the classroom” and that requests from UNC administrators that she meet with Jewish faculty were absurd.
Taking a page from the classic anti-Semitism playbook, Broderick also subscribes to bizarre conspiracy theories about Jews controlling the media, stating in an address that the “mobilization of the Hasbara network” and the “allegedly secular media” led to UNC officials asking her to respond to “baseless accusations.” She also alleged that UNC is “playing into a Zionist playbook,” and requires her to teach under “Israel’s rules.” She stated her belief that it is necessary to “dismantle the power that Hasbara and other pro-colonial causes have historically had over universities” so that the pro-Israel media can no longer “dominate the airwaves.”
The North Carolina Hillel chapter has also objected to Broderick’s abhorrent anti-Semitism, stating on the organization’s website that they are “very concerned” that “students who support and have a connection with Israel will be unwelcome or unsafe in [her] class” given her stated views that Israel should not exist and her refusal to “engage with people with other perspectives.”
For her single-minded determination to inject Jew hatred into her scholarship and teaching, Kylie Broderick is among the worst Jew-hating academics in America.
