It’s now been several weeks since multiple elitist universities in the United States decided to take a rather troubling stand in favor of Hamas, and they are still experiencing massive blowback.
Billionaire after billionaire has yanked their donations from the elitist schools, and, to make matters even worse, woke administrators who apparently have zero fear of osing their jobs continue to kowtow to violent militants on campus.
Shouldn’t the Patriot Act come into play at a certain point, given that the act directly alludes to individuals who harbor terrorist sympathies?
Or was that act just pretense for launching a mass surveillance campaign against Americans?
Regardless, universities continue to double down on their woke ways, especially after mainstream media gloated about how many billions the schools still have left due to years of receiving something for nothing.
However, other media outlets have pointed out a rather inconvenient trend: The schools may still have their billions, but they certainly don’t have their reputation like they once did.
Which Michael Hemesath, a professor of economics at Carleton College, detailed quite plainly to Business Insider.
“[As universities have become more] engaged in social and political issues, donors may be concerned that they have shifted their focus toward concerns outside of education … As prominent donors withdraw support, other donors may take that as a signal of the loss of institutional focus on education, and these many smaller donors may decide that they too should withdraw support,” Hemesath detailed.
Indeed. Let the ripple effect begin!
Looks like Harvard, alongside other ultra-woke Ivy League schools, might want to rethink siding with Hamas.
Not to mention their entire “affirmative action” process, which effectively revolves around giving things away to people based on what boxes they can check, rather than what they can actually do.
Clearly, affirmative action achieves nothing as far as basic character is concerned, which is evident from the upper echelons of Ivy League administration down to the lowliest level of its pathetic, pro-terrorist student organizations.
Starting with its blatantly “affirmative action” beneficiary president, proudly perched right at the top of all that Ivy League hate that her presence undoubtedly fosters.
Hate that was apparently difficult for Ms. Claudine Gay to disentangle herself from, given her rather tepid response to the massacre of innocent civilians in an unequivocal terrorist attack on the soil of the United States’ closest ally in the Middle East.
After all, it took her multiple days to claim that she “condemned” terrorism, though she clearly did so through gritted teeth as she just had to add that her condemnation comes with the condition of her “personal views” regarding terror in the Middle East, otherwise known as her pro-Hamas views.
Of course, Gay declined to distance Harvard from the hatred spewed by student groups against Israel, likely because it’s her type of leadership that encourages such violence in the first place.
One can only hope that Gay is soon ousted, however, given the amount of rage she’s managed to amass against the once venerable institute of higher learning.
Ken Griffin, one of the wealthiest men in America, had pledged a staggering $300M donation to Harvard … only to threaten to rescind every last dollar following President Gay’s tacit support of Hamas.
The Wexner Foundation has also yanked its support from Harvard entirely, after donating upwards of $56M to the woke institution for years.
And the foundation sent a rather searing letter, explaining their position.
“We are stunned and sickening at the dismal failure of Harvard’s leadership to take a clear and unequivocal stand against the barbaric murders of innocent Israeli civilians by terrorists … That feeling is shared by our HKS Israeli Alumni, the Foundation staff, and our chairmen,”
Sadly, Harvard University is hardly the only elite institution that apparently has a proclivity for pro-terrorist positions, as the University of Pennsylvania has also felt the wrath of its more prominent (i.e., non-affirmative action) alumni.
Jon Huntsman, who previously served as the U.S. Ambassador for Russia, China, and Singapore, noted that the Ivy League school has become “deeply adrift in ways that make it almost unrecognizable.”
With respect, that drift has been happening for years … and it’s somewhat sad that it took a mass terrorist attack for major donors to realize that.
However, between large and small donors alike, perhaps major universities will finally decide to get a grip.
