‘Expel. Deport. Repeat.’: MIT Blasted For Protecting Anti-Semitic Students Over Fears They’d Lose Their Visas | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology took considerable backlash over a statement explaining why more actions hadn't been taken against students who promoted anti-semitic and even genocidal slogans while participating in pro-Palestinian demonstrations on campus.

    While MIT is not the only American college campus where such protests are taking place, critics noted that it was the first to shed some light on why anti-semitic protests and demonstrations are getting overlooked with regard to disciplinary actions.

    Joel Petlin shared the statement along with his own observations, noting that the school had apparently refrained from taking action because they were concerned that foreign students - who make up nearly one-third of MIT's student body - could have their visas revoked.

    "I can't think of a better example of saying the quiet part out loud than @MIT admitting that they won't expel Antisemitic students because they will lose their student visas and be deported. How many other colleges are protecting dangerous people who don't belong in America?" he asked. "Incredible admission from @MIT president. Visa issues are why the students who are threatening Jews on campus are not being expelled."

    "MIT didn't want to punish antisemitic foreign students harassing American Jews on campus because suspension would lead to deportation under the student visa rules. So MIT chose to help the antisemites instead of punishing them. Morality run amok," Marina Medvin added. "MIT is one of the most prestigious universities in the US. These days, foreigners make up about 30% of the MIT student body. Jewish students, on the other hand, make up about 6% of the MIT student body - a campus minority."

    "'Visa issues' are not only a reason to suspend these pro-Hamas foreigners from school, but also to deport them immediately," Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said.

    "Expel. Deport. Repeat," another posted.

    Science fiction author Karl Gallagher added, "I am ashamed of my alma mater. @MIT should expel students who blocked other students from getting their educations. If that results in revoked visas, good. They can find a school in their home country," he said.

A majority of Americans still believe in OUR 1st Amendment guaranteed Freedom of Speech; however, at what bold point does the constitutional right to Free Speech becomes unabashed anti-Semitic Hate Speech, and while it should possibly be tolerated on our college campuses, and on the streets of mostly Sanctuary Cities, these events should be rightfully observed and scrupulously monitored ... or, not? What is your true opinion of when too much of enough is just too much, or not?
  The answer to Free Speech I don't agree with is more, and incredibly robust Free Speech.
  There is a point when Free Speech becomes counter productive to sustaining a peaceful society.
  Free Speech should only be tolerated if it represents the status quo of the highly educated orthodoxy.
  Early in life, I learned to speak only when I am spoken to.
