Trump Aims Executive Order At Colleges

Posted December 11th, 2019 by Iron Mike

Trump took a historic step to deal with the rising anti-Semitism on American college campuses, – by linking anti-Semitism to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The Executive Order makes it easier for government agencies to withhold federal funds from campuses which tolerate anti-Jewish and anti-Israel activities.  It comes with controversy,  – with critics claiming that Trump is labeling Judaism as “a Nationality”video:

Where there is no controversy is the shocking rise over the past decade in anti-Jewish and anti-Israel activity on American campuses.  It even creeps down to the high school level.

It really doesn’t matter whether a given Jew considers him/her self as a follower of an ancient RELIGION,  – a member of a widely scattered Tribe or People,  – or a descendant of an ancient Ethnic Group,…

…the Executive Order signed by Trump this afternoon ~ should ~ make the abuse and discrimination these people now receive on college and university campuses a little less ‘in their face’…

The sad fact is that many of the high-ranking college and university leaders in the USA,  – and their board members,   DO HARBOR anti-Jewish feelings, – and have been reluctant to curb or disrupt anti-Semitic events on their campuses.

Some probably fear the loss of Arab money if they act.

Now they risk huge sums of government scholarship / loan guarantees and research funding.  We’ll see if $$$$ and expensive and highly public lawsuits can influence executive behavior.

It sure was good to watch Trump doing the right thing this afternoon!   Somewhere Obama and his hate-filled cartel members are stewing….

    Once again President Trump is doing the right thing by signing an Executive Order to deal with the rising anti-Semitism on college campuses. Our high schools, and even Middle Schools are also vulnerable. Newton, MA has a terrible problem in their schools with an anti-Semitic curriculum. Many cities and towns are having problems too. Hopefully this action by President Trump will be helpful.

    Unfortunately the virulent BDS movement is an angry growing group that is making Jewish students that support Israel feel intimidated. This is not good for our country where we are all free to believe as we wish.

    Our wonderful President Trump is always looking to MAGA.
