Philadelphia PA, the presidents of the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are encountering increasing demands for resignation following a tumultuous House hearing this week concerning their institutions’ responses to the surge in antisemitism.

Calls for their resignations have intensified as donors, students, and faculty express dissatisfaction with their handling of the situation. The controversy heightened when Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) posed a question during the Tuesday hearing, inquiring whether a call for the genocide of Jewish people would be deemed harassment.

Liz Magill, President of the University of Pennsylvania, submitted her resignation on Saturday amid backlash over comments she made during a House hearing this week addressing the growing issue of antisemitism on college campuses.

During the Tuesday hearing, Magill and other university leaders sparked controversy by suggesting that determining whether comments advocating for the genocide of Jewish people constituted harassment depended on the context.

These remarks faced criticism from university alumni, Wall Street , Major Law firms  and Pennsylvania politicians,  many calling for her resignation or removal from the position.

  3. Adios Majerk! And from now on anyone in any position of influence and authority public or private should be made to sign a legally binding declaration for their unwavering support of Israel. Something with real consequences. You don’t get to poison children’s minds against and stab our allies in the back because of your misguided feelings or whatever. Nip this in the bud now.

  4. As long as they still allow anti-Christian speech, and maintain anti-White policies and anti-Women sports teams, then it’s all good…
