This is How the BDS Sausage is Made

Judith Butler is an admired academic. She is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and is believed to be a theorist of gender, although one can never be quite so sure with quotes that fret about things like “the move from a structuralist account in which capital is understood to structure social relations in relatively homologous ways to a view of hegemony in which power relations are subject to repetition, convergence, and rearticulation brought the question of temporality into the thinking of structure, and marked a shift from a form of Althusserian theory that takes structural totalities as theoretical objects to one in which the insights into the contingent possibility of structure inaugurate a renewed conception of hegemony as bound up with the contingent sites and strategies of the rearticulation of power.”

On one issue, however, professor Butler rarely obfuscates: Israel, which she believes to be a unique global evil worthy of all manners of censure.
