Tim Scott On FOX News: College Campuses Ignore Hate, But Reject Faith
“Colleges should be for the education of our kids, not for the indoctrination of our kids.” – Tim Scott
CORALVILLE, IA – Tim Scott joined FOX and Friends Saturday this morning to blast the rise of anti-Semitism on college campuses and the Squad’s silence during Hamas’ murder of Israelis and Americans. Tim also highlighted his new legislation to pull funding from colleges and universities that support hateful behavior.
Tim Scott: And to have the Squad tell people to have a ceasefire, to have the Squad keep up a tweet that says that Israel was responsible for 500 deaths at a hospital, even though it has proven to be a lie, I find their actions despicable. I find their conduct disgusting. I find their presence as a part of the House of Representatives antithetical to what we stand for as a nation, not as Republicans, not as Democrats, but as Americans, we stand against hate.
And that’s exactly why I am leading on legislation that eliminates funding for universities that say it is acceptable for their students to call for genocide. It is acceptable for their students to support terrorism. It’s acceptable for their students to support murder. You have free speech, but you can’t be an idiot. And so I think pulling the funding, the Pell grants from colleges and universities that support that kind of malignant behavior is in the best interest of every single good American who understands that funding colleges should be for the education of our kids, not for the indoctrination of our kids.
Tim Scott: One of the things I find challenging is if you believe in a hundred genders, you have freedom of speech. If you wanna speak about your faith and your love for Jesus on a college campus, somehow that’s called hate and you lose your First Amendment rights. We as a nation, there are good people on both sides of the aisle. Frankly, here’s what I believe, I believe that Joe Biden can’t even be honest about any positions because he’s beholden to the Squad. Political power is more important than doing the right thing. For the radical Left, control is more important than doing the right thing. And frankly, they’ll use race, class, and even genocide from the Squad in order to hold on to political power and it is disgusting.
