A UCLA student burst into tears and launched into a mostly incomprehensible anti-Israel rant on Wednesday after her fellow students voted to defeat a student council resolution aimed at divesting from the Jewish state.
UCLA’s student council defeated the boycott resolution by a vote of 7 to 5 following an all-night session, according to the blog Legal Insurrection.
Following the vote, one of the divestment measure’s supporters experienced a several-minute emotional breakdown that was caught on tape and uploaded to YouTube.
"I’ve never been more fucking disappointed than today," the girl wails through tears, as she shivers and rolls back in her chair.
This is followed by several seconds of incomprehensible moaning.
The unidentified female then appears to mention something about her "opinions."
"I’ve never been so fucking disappointed on anything," she continues, while banging her fist into the table. "We fucking blew it. I’m sorry."
"And I’m like, I’m like sorry for blowing up right now," she says in a high-pitched squeak. "And I’m just so disappointed. … I don’t understand why, like, it went like that."
This statement was followed by more unintelligible rambling and crying.
The defeat of the divestment resolution was hailed as a win for opponents of the Boycott, Sanctions, and Divestment (BDS) movement, which aims to economically isolate Israel and the Jewish people.
It follows a series of defeats for backers of the boycott movement, who continue to be viewed as anti-Semitic fringe activists.
