Ernst Calls Universities’ Choice to Support Terrorists “Un-American”

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) condemned the leadership failures that have allowed antisemitic violence and pro-Hamas propaganda to skyrocket on American soil. She exposed that college campus “protesters” are doing the bidding of terrorists that use rape as a weapon of war and kill babies.

As cases of antisemitism on campuses started to increase after the October 7 attack on Israel, Ernst introduced the Students’ Bill of Rights to protect the First Amendment rights of students and stem discrimination at its source.

After the October 7 attacks on Israel, Ernst led her colleagues in demanding the Department of Education uphold its legal obligations to ensure Jewish and Israeli students are not subjected to discrimination. She also sponsored the Stop Antisemitism on College Campuses Act to cut federal funding for any college or university that allows antisemitic events to occur on their campus.

Last week in the face of these college mobs, Ernst joined her colleagues in calling on the Biden administration for its plan to restore order and protect Jewish students.
