(RightIsRight.co) – In one of the more bizarre new political developments, radicalized students supporting Islamist terrorism stunned Democrat heavyweight Hillary Clinton by staging a walkout during her lecture at Columbia University.
On Wednesday, about 30 students left in protest against “moderate” Democrats’ support for US ally Israel during a Columbia University lecture featuring Hillary Clinton and Keren Yarhi-Milo, the dean of the School of International and Public Affairs.
The lecture was aimed at discussing the role of women in peace processes, The Daily Caller reports.
Those who exited the session converged with other demonstrators already positioned near the entrance of the International Affairs Building on the Columbia campus, The New York Times, as cited by National Review.
Before the walkout, Clinton, a former US Secretary of State, US Senator, First Lady, and a twice-failed presidential candidate, was forced to engage in a “shouting match” with a young man from the audience.
The heckler stood up and delivered a rant against President Joe Biden’s intended plan for delivering over $100 billion in aid to threatened US allies such as Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan.
The protest during Hillary Clinton’s lecture emerged in response to accusations that the university had a hand in revealing the identities of students who supported statements critical of Israel, the Review points out.
On October 7, the Palestinian Islamist terrorist group Hamas sadistically massacred over 1,400 people in Israel – a crime celebrated by leftist students on US college campuses.
A vehicle with video screens was seen near the campus broadcasting the images of students affiliated with organizations that had endorsed a declaration attributing the responsibility for the Hamas attacks to Israel. The displayed message branded these students as “Columbia’s Leading Antisemites.”
The protesting students alleged that their images were improperly obtained from a protected digital platform exclusive to students of the School of International and Public Affairs.
They are now calling for “immediate legal support for affected students” and “a commitment to student safety, well-being and privacy.”
Clinton took a strong pro-Israel stance after the conflict in Israel erupted.
“People who are calling for a ceasefire now do not understand Hamas. That is not possible,” she told CBS.
