Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York grilled Harvard University president Dr. Claudine Gay over reports of rising antisemitism throughout her campus during a House Committee hearing on Tuesday.

“Harvard student calling for the mass murder of African-Americans is not protected free speech at Harvard, correct?” Stefanik asked Gay. She had to demand the president answer her question before moving forward. Once she did, she asked if Gay was familiar with the term “intifada,” and provided multiple examples of Harvard students using the chants: “There is only one solution. Intifada, Revolution,” and “globalize the intifada” since the terrorist organization Hamas started slaughtering people on October 7.

Stefanik explained, “the use of the term intifada in the context of the Israeli-Arab conflict is indeed a call for violent armed resistance against the state of Israel, including violence against, civilians and the genocide of Jews.” Gay said she’d heard the term before, and that the type of speech was “personally abhorrent” to her.

Harvard Is Waiting For Violence

“We embrace a commitment to free expression, even of that is objectionable, offensive, hateful. It’s when that speech crosses into conduct that violates our policies against bullying,” Gay told Stefanik. (LEARN MORE: Anti-Christian Hate Crimes Soar In Europe)

“Does that speech not cross that barrier? Does that speech not call for the genocide of Jews and the elimination of Israel? When you testify that you understand that is the definition of intifada, is that speech according to the code of conduct or not?” the Rep. replied.

“We embrace a commitment to free expression and give a wide berth to free expression, even of views that are objectionable,” Gay replied, doubling down on her apparently openness for Harvard students to be pro-genocide.

After being pushed once again to ask what Harvard plans to do in order to combat the rise in racism, antisemitism, and pro-terrorist ideologies amongst their students, Gay said: “When speech crosses into conduct that violates our policies, including policies against bullying, harassment or intimidation, we take action, and we have robust disciplinary processes that allow to hold individuals accountable.”
