Professor David Polumbo-Liu is the Louise Hewlett Nixon Professor at Stanford University. He is ferociously anti-Israel and is actively involved with ANTIFA on campus.
As co-founder of the Campus Antifascist Network, Palumbo-Liu describes the purpose of the network as to “help support, educate and defend faculty, students and staff, and share information on fascist organizing in the U.S., planned fascist activities, and organized antifascist responses.”
In an article for the Huffington Post, he repeated the antisemitic trope that Israel is preparing to demolish Al-Aqsa Mossque and accused Israel of indiscriminately murdering Palestians.
A vocal proponent of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, Liu has advocated for its passage both at Stanford and at the MLA (Modern Language Association).
