Cruz Rips Biden, AOC Response To Anti-Semitic Protests At Colleges

 Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed President Joe Biden and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) response to the anti-Semitic protests that have unfolded on multiple college campuses over the last several days.

Cruz’s comments come after students at some of America’s top universities — including Columbia University, New York University, and Yale University — have openly backed terrorist groups and called for violence against Jews. Many of the students are openly violating school conduct policies, and in some cases are violating criminal statutes with attacks on others.

“That is not peaceful,” Cruz said on his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson this week. “Threats of violence and calling for the murder of your former students is not remotely peaceful.”

“AOC, this is a sitting member of Congress, she’s singling out Columbia and Yale, she’s praising what’s happening at Columbia and Yale,” Cruz said. “Understand, she supports this vicious anti-Semitism, and there is Joe Biden happily sitting there.”

Cruz then appeared to reference a Daily Wire report from this week about remarks that Columbia University President Minouche Shafik made after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks when she said that terrorism was a “form of protesting against a system.”

“And in today’s leftist academy, using the president of Columbia’s own word, they have some sympathy for that,” he said. “No, there is no sympathy. Terrorism is not a form of protest. Terrorism is a horrific form of violence that targets civilians, that targets women and children, that commits murder and acts of cruelty. And that’s exactly what Hamas did.”

Cruz added, “And what Columbia did, they revoked his [Shai Davidai] pass to campus, they zeroed out his access and blocked him. This is the administration of Columbia, they decided between a professor on their faculty who happened to be Jewish, or the anti-Semitic protesters who are threatening violence that the problem was the professor who dared to be Jewish.”
