Offense: In June of 2015, Professor Cole took to his personal blog, entitled “Informed Comment,” to argue that far right wing Jews are to blame for the church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina. His argument is that anti-Islamic “writings and websites” inspired shooter Dylan Roof to carry out the attack: “From this point I researched deeper and found out what was happening in Europe. I saw that the same things were happening in England and France, and in all the other Western European countries…But Europe is the homeland of White people, and in many ways the situation is even worse there.” Cole has also made similar arguments prior to this, as far back as 2011.
