Antisemitism on the Rise

STEFANIK SHREDS HARVARD! Keeping Prez on 'a Moral Failure of Harvard's Leadership' [WATCH]

House GOP Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) reacted to Harvard’s decision to keep President Claudine Gay in her position after failing to condemn antisemitism on campus during a recent hearing on the Hill.

“There is a reason why the testimony at the Education Workforce Committee garnered 1 billion views worldwide, and it’s because those university presidents made history by putting the most morally bankrupt testimony into the Congressional Record, and the world saw it,” Stefanik said Tuesday. “As a Harvard graduate, I’m reminded of Harvard’s motto, Veritas, which goes back – and it’s older than the founding of our country, it goes back to the 1640s. In addition, the motto was Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae – Truth for Christ and the Church.”

“Larry Summers, who was president of Harvard when I was an undergrad, talked about the meaning of Veritas is divine truth, moral truth. Let me be clear. Veritas does not depend on the context,” Stefanik said. “This is a moral failure of Harvard’s leadership and higher education leadership at the highest levels, and the only change they have made to their code of conduct, where they failed to condemn calls for genocide of the Jewish people, the only update to the code of conduct is to allow a plagiarist as the president of Harvard.”

Stefanik questioned university Presidents from Harvard, MIT, and Penn last week during a hearing on the spike in antisemitism on college campuses; all three presidents failed to condemn aggression toward Jewish students on their campuses.

Penn President, Elizabeth Magill, and the chairman of the board of trustees, Scott L. Bok, both resigned in the wake of the testimony and millions in donations have been lost.
