Students at Harvard University have created a petition to revoke the degrees of Trump’s allies as punishment for voicing their political opinions.
The students said:
“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes—rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression—incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” the petition said, which was obtained by Fox Business. “This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election. They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy’ and ‘the advancement of justice.’”
In the Petition, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany were named.
The petition said:
“It’s no secret that over a dozen Harvard graduates worked hard to spread the disinformation and mistrust that created last Wednesday’s insurrection.”
A student told Fox business: “I was surprised how popular this petition is even among mid-career students,” “It’s one thing for 22-year-olds to sign onto something radical but another thing for 40-year-olds to buy into it.”
The petition went on to elaborate:
“Banning someone from a committee or campus because they incited a violent attempt to overthrow the U.S. government is the least the University can do; it still grants them the benefits of their Harvard degree everywhere outside of Cambridge,” the petition continued. “Those like Rep. Stefanik, who will wear a ban from Harvard as a badge of honor, may be less sanguine about a career without their B.A or J.D. Revoke their degrees.”
Recently Rep. Elise Stefanik was removed from the role on the senior advisory board of the university’s Institute of Politics, she released a statement:
“As a conservative Republican, it is a rite of passage and a badge of honor to join the long line of leaders who have been boycotted, protested, and canceled by colleges and universities across America. The decision by Harvard’s administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode diversity of thought, public discourse, and ultimately the student experience. The Ivory Tower’s march toward a monoculture of like-minded, intolerant liberal views illustrates the sneering disdain for everyday Americans and will instill a culture of fear for students who will understand that a conservative viewpoint will not be tolerated and will be silenced.”
