Does DMP Agree Part X: Antisemitic Speech on College Campuses
Tampa, FL – Yesterday, the presidents of M.I.T, Harvard, and Penn were asked a simple question: does calling for the genocide of Jews violate their code of conduct? Their answers – or lack thereof – were shocking. They couldn’t simply answer yes or no. Instead, they read prepared answers and one even said that it depends on the context in which a student calls for the genocide of Jews.
These answers (or non-answers) are disgusting and are an example of the moral decline of the elitist leadership at America’s top higher education institutions. Antisemitic hate crimes on college campuses have skyrocketed since the brutal terrorist attack on Israel by Iran-backed Hamas. Yet, the leaders of these institutions cannot simply give a yes or no answer when asked whether calling for the genocide of Jews is a violation of their rules.
Statement from Team Rick Scott Spokesman Jonathan Turcotte: “Democrats in Congress saw the leaders of these colleges bend over backwards to avoid answering questions about antisemitism on college campuses. And none of them spoke out against it. EVERYONE needs to call out antisemitism when they see it. That includes failed Florida Democrat-turned-Senate candidate Debbie Mucarsel-Powell who has been silent on her Democrat colleagues’ refusal to denounce what happened in yesterday’s Congressional hearing. Debbie-Mucarsel-Powell needs to let Floridians know whose side she is on. Will she stay silent like her Democrat colleagues? Or will she speak out about the disgusting answers that these college presidents gave yesterday”?
