I hate it when I agree with Elise Stefanik. [View all]
Yesterday, at a hearing of the Education Committee, the presidents of Harvard, University of Pennsylvanian, and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology were questioned on the rise of antisemitism on campus.
During the questioning, Committee Chair Elise Stefanie asked Dr. Claudine Gay if "calling for the genocide of Jews' constitutes bullying and harassment. Dr. Gay responded "It depends on context....."
She was interrupted by Stefanik who said "There is no context. The answer is yes across the board. You need to resign."
Dr. Gay has a Ph.D. She should be in possession of critical thinking skills to understand that there is no context to hate speech and antisemitism. What a disappointment.
From the Washington Post:
STEFANIK: And Dr. Gay at Harvard? Does calling for the genocide of Jews violate Harvards rules of bullying and harassment? Yes or no?
GAY: It can be depending on the context.
