‘Coddled’ college students falling prey to ‘cultural Marxism’ in campuses’ takeover by anti-Jewish mobs, Missouri senators Hawley, Schmitt argue

Universities across America have “totally failed this country” in creating a climate of “cultural Marxism” resulting in the anti-Israel mobs on campuses, say Missouri Senators Josh Hawley and Eric Schmitt.

“It’s been a total disgrace,” Hawley told The Heartlander Thursday of the universities’ handling of the antisemitic insurrections.

“These students, they don’t know right from wrong; they don’t know any history, clearly. They’re out there chanting what amount to Nazi slogans. They know no history, they know nothing about right and wrong, but yet they want their food delivered to them, you know, gluten-free, vegan, hot please. No bagels. You look at the list of their demands, it’s absurd.  

“This has got to be the most coddled generation in American history, but also one of the stupidest based on what they are saying out there.”

The culture of selective outrage and blind rage has been fertilized by the push for Critical Race Theory, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), Schmitt adds.

“It’s cultural Marxism, it’s race essentialism,” Schmitt told the Heartlander. “You pit everyone against one another. It’s a constant churning. It’s based on immutable characteristics that you have no control over, and somebody’s the oppressor and somebody’s the oppressed. 

“And so, it’s playing itself out now in a really ugly way on these college campuses. I think the American people see. I think we ought to reject it.

“People have a right to speak their mind, but you don’t have a right to block access to buildings because people are Jewish. You don’t have a right to intimidate folks like that. You don’t have a right to build encampments on private property. And that’s what you’re seeing right now.”

The swarms of Hamas apologists who’ve camped out illegally on campuses, engaged in fights and threats, and even barricaded themselves in university buildings have created a nightmare scenario for the left, Schmitt notes.

“I think the Democrats have a real problem here,” Schmitt says. “The reason why they’re not really speaking out about this is because they’ve got a growing pro-Hamas wing of the Democrat Party. They’re not going away. They’re loud. They’re going to show up at the [Democrat Party] convention. They don’t know what to do about it.

“Now they’ve created a monster, and they don’t know how to deal with it. But they ought to do the right thing and speak out against this kind of blatant anti-Semitism.”

Hawley has some thoughts on what else should be done as a result of the antisemitic tumult at these institutions of higher education.

“Here’s what ought to happen,” Hawley explains. “These university presidents should expel the students who are violating the law. They ought to fire the professors who are violating the law. And Joe Biden should call in the National Guard to make sure our campuses are safe and to make sure Jewish students are safe on campus.”

Hawley also blistered President Joe Biden for considering bringing untold numbers of Palestinians into the United States. Hawley notes polling that showed 72% of Palestinians actually approve of terror organization Hamas’ savage Oct. 7 attacks on Israeli civilians.

“I think it’s a terrible idea to bring Palestinian refugees here. I’m completely and totally opposed to it,” Hawley told The Heartlander.

“Let’s just think about this for a second. These are the people who elected Hamas to lead them. These are the folks who tell everybody who will listen that they overwhelmingly support the attacks on Israel. And that’s not just speculation; there’s been polls done. I mean 70-plus percent of Palestinians say they think the terrorist attacks on Israel are fantastic, great idea. And now Joe Biden wants to bring those people to the United States?  

“This is after he has brought 9 million illegal migrants here in three years. And now he wants even more terrorist sympathizers? He’s got to be out of his mind. I think it’s a terrible, terrible idea. He does not have the authority to just do it unilaterally, and Congress ought to step in to stop him.”

Schmitt also supports calls for an investigation into who and what entities are funding and organizing the curiously comparable protests from coast to coast.

“I do think it’s important to figure out who’s behind this,” Schmitt says. “It’s obviously very coordinated. And I think what you’re seeing now is – whether it’s the Black Lives Matter riots or this kind of campus violence — there’s a common thread. People show up, there’s a lot of coordination.

“This is not somebody with a bullhorn in the town square just saying their piece. These people are on private property blocking access, intimidating folks, resorting to violence, denying kids’ access to their classrooms because of their religion.

“It’s pretty wild stuff. So I would certainly welcome [an investigation].”
