Fired for “liking” Trump tweets: Michael Korenberg, board chair of UBC

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we looked at the fall of Michael Korenberg, the chairman of the University of British Columbia.

In this extended clip from the full episode available to premium subscribers, we'll look at the whole story: Korenberg's social media “likes” concerning Trump and Black Lives Matter, his apology, the media response and what the University of British Columbia's Students Against Bigotry groups think counts as white supremacy and racism.

Did this guy — who probably not one in a hundred UBC students could name, and not one in a thousand would care about — did he really deeply hurt UBC students? Did he create “real harm” by liking a tweet?

Really? I’d like to meet that student. I’m going to go out on a limb here — that student who is complaining isn’t black — there are very few black students at UBC. And he isn’t Asian — there are very many Asian students at UBC.

I bet it’s an angry white leftist. But really, it’s seeped into the administration too — if they’re talking about “overt and structural racism”.

What on earth are they even talking about?

No-one knows.

Not even the CBC, I don’t think.

But that’s OK. Michael Korenberg liked a Trump tweet, so he’s a racist who has to go.
