Brianna Barry [Brianna K. Barry] has promoted Holocaust revisionism, spread anti-Semitism and equated Israel with Nazi Germany. Barry also expressed support for Hamas terrorists and spread hatred of Zionists and Israel.
As of June 2023, Barry’s LinkedIn said she graduated from the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Medicine (JHUSOM) with a master’s of science in “Biochemistry, Cellular, and Molecular Biology” in 2020. Barry was also a graduate research assistant at JHUSOM from August 2017 to December 2020.
In April 2021, Barry tweeted: “It’s been ~3.5 months since I left myPhD program at Johns Hopkins.” On May 31, 2023, Barry tweeted that she was “unceremoniously fired from my PhD program at Johns Hopkins just a few months out from graduation.”
As of June 2023, Barry’s LinkedIn said she graduated from the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry in 2017. While studying at UT Austin, Barry was a research ambassador from August 2016 to May 2017 and an undergraduate researcher from May 2014 to May 2017.
On October 28, 2022, Barry tweeted: “Jews were not exterminated because they were Jewish. They were exterminated because times were very hard, and Jewish people, alongside many others, were scapegoated. Watch your backs. [18/18].”
On December 22, 2022, Barry tweeted: “The number of German Jews killed in the Holocaust is comparable to the number of German Jews who fought for Nazis in WWII. Both numbers are less than the number of Americans who died in WWII…”
On April 4, 2023, Barry tweeted: “A topic I’ve discussed at length in recent years is that the modern fight against anti-semitism actually *is* anti-semitism. World Jewry is an enormously wealthy and powerful lobby with specific self interest that wields the word ‘Jew’ for political gain, including against Jews.”
On January 13, 2023, Barry tweeted: “If you want a master class in how elites operate in the US & beyond, look no further than the exclusionary tactics of Judaism and modern world Jewry. You don’t go from the Holocaust to Forbes’ lists in 70 years by accident. In truth, Hitler selectively exterminated the poor. 9/9.”
On November 15, 2022, Barry tweeted in support of a quote attributed to American actor Marlon Brando that read: “Hollywood is run by Jews; it is owned by Jews–and they should have a greater sensitivity about the issue of people who are suffering. Because…we have seen…the greaseball, we’ve seen the Chink, we’ve seen the slit-eyed dangerous Jap, we have seen the wily Filipino, we’ve seen everything but we never saw the kike. Because they knew perfectly well that that’s where you draw [line].”
On October 30, 2022, Barry tweeted about when she first got to JHU, writing: “All I knew about ‘Jews’ was that they faced extermination in the Holocaust, have forced Palestinians to face extermination via Israel, and that they have some sort of protected status in the US because of ‘anti-semitism.’…”
Equating Israel with Nazi Germany
Also on April 16, 2023, Barry also tweeted in the same thread: “…Israel appears to be in the initial stages of a Final Solution plan. No exaggeration. I mean this literally.” The Nazis called their planned mass murder of Jews: “The Final Solution to the Jewish Question.”
Barry concluded the thread by writing: “Much like the Soviet Union held back nothing against Germany’s Final Solution, so too must Palestine fight Israel…”
On October 13, 2022, Barry tweeted: “With Israel’s concentration camps for Palestinians, racialized segregation among its own Jewish citizens, and flourishing Apartheid South African community, the Jewish alliance with racism continues to run its course.”
Terror Support (Hamas)
In May 2021, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorists fired over 4,300 rockets from Gaza at major population centers in Israel. Israel responded by launching OGW, carrying out targeted military strikes in Gaza.
On May 14, 2021, Barry tweeted: “The US calls Hamas a ‘terrorist organization’ because Hamas resists Israel’s genocidal campaign. Palestine is a sovereign state, and Hamas is a security & social services force recognized by the UN. Hamas is fighting to save Palestinians from total extermination.”
Hatred of Israel and Zionists
The accusation that Israeli law enforcement teaches American police brutal tactics during police exchange programs is used to demonize Israel. Participants in these programshave stated [00:02:14] that the training in Israel focuses [00:13:36] on public policy, counter-terrorism and leadership training in the form of lectures and discussions.
On the same date, Barry tweeted in the same thread: “Israeli apartheid is exalted & protected by US officials.”
On the same date, Barry tweeted in the same thread: “Our taxes, soldiers, and defense resources are used to destabilize the world against America’s interests. Our gov’t is overrun by Zionists. It’s high time that we the people reaffirmed our own character, forged our own identity, and envisioned our own future. Zionism must go.”
On November 27, 2022, Barry tweeted: “If the terrorist state of Israel is ever to fall, we must prepare for global consequences. Israel is committing a genocide against Palestinians, but that’s not all they do. The US military and NATO, for ex, depend upon Israeli manufacturing, intelligence, & cyber infrastructure.”
On April 7, 2022, Barry tweeted: “Zionism is a state of Jewish supremacy. I’ve read the manifestos of early Zionist leaders and radical Jewish terrorists. I’ve read chapter after chapter of the Bible and the Talmud. Zionism is genocide. To ask someone facing extinction how the murderers will go on is inhuman.”
The Talmud is a fundamental text of Rabbinic Judaism and a primary source of Jewish religious law and Jewish theology.
The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement was founded by Omar Barghouti in 2005 to challenge “international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.” BDS is an allegedly “Palestinian-led movement,” although leading BDS activists have admitted [00:01:01] this is not true.
One of the demands of BDS includes [point 3] what is generally known as the “right of return,” a demand discredited as a way to eliminate Israel. Barghouti said the “right of return” is a means to “end Israel’s existence as a Jewish state.”
Barghouti has said that BDS “aims to turn Israel into a pariah state, as South Africa once was.”
In his activism, Barghouti has also said [00:05:55] regarding Israel: “Definitely, most definitely, we oppose a Jewish state in any part of Palestine. No…rational Palestinian, not a sellout Palestinian, will ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.”
BDS initiatives include calling on institutions and individuals to divest from Israeli-affiliated companies, promoting academic and cultural boycotts of Israel, and organizing anti-Israel rallies, protests and campaigns.
The movement’s most notable achievement has been the infiltration of university campuses through lobbying for “BDS resolutions.” In these cases, student governments and student groups, backed by their own anti-Israel members and affiliates, have proposed resolutions on some form of boycott of, or divestment from, Israel and Israeli-affiliated entities.
BDS activity is often aggressive and disruptive. It has been noted that universities that pass BDS resolutions see a marked increase in anti-Semitic incidents on campus. On one campus, when the student government debated a BDS resolution, reports emerged of violent threats against those opposing it.
