Claudine Gay, Liz Magill: Living examples of white privilege. It does exist, just not in the form most Democrats believe.

The Palestinian Authority is working with US officials on a plan to run Gaza...

A terrorist organization is working with the U.S. to subordinate another terrorist organization to run a territory that allows terrorists to plan and execute terrorism.

This is the plot line of a dystopian novel.

What makes me laugh is the (fake) backlash from other democrats.

They aren’t saying those things because they disagree it’s because they want these people to be quiet. Make no

Mistake. Whoopi and all them are speaking against these people like Ilan omar all the while secretly agreeing.

Firing the presidents does absolutely nothing toward solving the problem of social and political indoctrination in the universities. At most, it only warns the profs to not speak out in front of Congress. Until they are cleaned out, nothing will change.

You're currently talking about the President / Deans of Harvard, MIT, UPenn. Ms. Gay used the term 'My truth.' Erick, you began educating us a little over a year & a half ago on this. THANK YOU! I even took notes because, even though I am not stupid (I don't think) & it wasn't a foreign concept that people can have different perspectives, I had no idea that every single person was allowed to have their own 'truth.' I think that there are facts that are the truth. Even within a family, siblings frequently have different memories of an incident. But, we arrive at the same truth (outcome). It's a very sad state of affairs that the post-modern society has reached this place & I pray that we can come out of this and it would be great if companies didn't hire the type of people who are post-modern thinkers (but I use the term lightly). The best way, I find, is to address the situations is to offer up actual facts in a gentle way. And, for me, that's not easy, it takes amazing patience!

The university presidents and those trying to rationalize their behavior selectively suggest that all that was going on was "verbally calling for intifada". That is political word smithing and posturing. Those verbal actions of coincided with harassment, threats and bullying of Jewish students so let's stay focused on the reality of what is happening and quit playing hypothetical word games.

I get the absolute hypocrisy of the university professors. They're despicable in their selective enforcement of their own conduct codes on campus. Plenty of conservative speakers have been thrown off campuses over the years; free speech rights have been repeatedly violated. Harvard is ranked at the bottom of FIRE's list for free speech allowed on campus. I'm not going to make any excuses for the universities, and I understand that the hearings were about "codes of conduct" and not the First Amendment, per se. I get it.

That said, am I the only one who was a little creeped out by Elise Stefanik's questioning? "It depends on the context" may be a legitimate answer when it comes to speech. For instance, a student protest calling for "intifada," which means "uprising," may or may not constitute bullying or harassment, based on the context or even the *location* of the protest. Also, the Right has been saying for years that speech does not equal conduct. Now, they're trying to say it does. Speech is harassment or bullying, i.e. conduct, regardless of context?

Watching the hearings (which I did on every show from Shapiro to Greenwald!) gave me an Orwellian vibe that was a little disturbing. When a Democrat Congress calls Larry Arn from Hillsdale College to account for students saying that gays will burn in hell, don't say I didn't warn you.

"RFK Jr. on 2024 White House Bid: ‘My Intention is to Spoil the Race for Both of Them’"

Otherwise known as "winning." Every candidate intends to spoil the race for every other candidate. That's kinda the point.

Of course he will be villified by the Left for "not taking his meds"

"The US economy added a surprising 200K new jobs in November tempering expectations of a rate cut."

This is hilarious in that the jobs data is political spin (for example leaves out the number of part time workers, workers working more than one job, and workers that dropped out of the workforce because they got frustrated not being able to find a good enough job)... and that spin give the Fed reason to keep rates high.

So as the Biden Admin spins the employment data for political advantage, it has the net impact of causing the rates to stay high which is a political disadvantage.
