According to The Daily Wire, Harvard University students are petitioning for Trump administration officials be banned from attending, speaking, or teaching at the university.
“Last year, the university came under fire for requiring a ‘neutral’ moderator to be present for controversial speakers.”
“The policy reportedly allowed the moderator to impose a ‘two-strike’ rule on interruptions and had to be registered with the Dean of Students’ Office a month in advance.”
“An editorial for The Harvard Crimson, a student-run paper, blasted the policy and its other aspects as ‘paternalistic, ineffective, and contrary to the College’s stated goals of free speech.”
“We should welcome in our fellow Americans with whom we differ politically, but those who took a paycheck from the Trump administration should not profit from their efforts to tear our democracy apart.”
“We should keep and publish a list of everyone who assists Trump’s frivolous and dangerous attacks on the election.”
“Name and shame forever.”
Daniel Ravicher said, “Yes let’s make a list of everyone who disagrees with Democrats. Then we’ll make them wear special armbands so everyone can tell who they are.”
“After that we’ll put them into the same neighborhood together and blame them for all our problems.”
“After that, camps and final solution,” he tweeted.
“Footnote: My entire Ukrainian Jewish family, including my grandfather, was killed by Hitler.”
“So, yeah, I kinda don’t like government officials making lists of people that don’t agree with them so they, although having violated no law, can nonetheless be ‘held accountable.’”
