Compare How University Elites Responded To George Floyd’s Death And The Innocent Israeli Massacre

by | Nov 26, 2023 | Culture War

Ivory tower elites were quick to hail the drug addict George Floyd as a national hero. With Hamas’ attack, they’re not so black-and-white.

If the last three years have proven anything, it’s that America’s top universities are deeply sick, and “progressive” ideology is to blame.

In 2020, left-wing faculty made certain everyone knows that Black Lives Matter and shamed anyone who was skeptical of that Marxist-led organization. Flash forward to October 2023, and these same crusaders couldn’t care less about slaughtered, tortured, beheaded, and dismembered Israeli Jews — and we have it in writing.

Take the death of George Floyd in May 2020, an opioid addict with a “high tolerance for fentanyl” and a criminal history of drug abuse. Floyd died in police custody — with a “fatal level” of fentanyl in his body — after Minneapolis cops arrested him for buying cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill and forcefully held him to the ground for nearly nine minutes.

Floyd’s sad death was a controversial footnote to America’s decades-long struggle with drug addiction. But for race-obsessed cynics searching for a new election crisis — or a reason to burn down America’s cities — it was enough to make Floyd a Black Lives Matter icon martyred by Republican “white supremacists.”

Our Ivy League universities led the “progressive” movement to defeat systemic racism with dozens of statements decrying America’s slave-owning origins and systemic injustices. Now those same universities are amazingly quiet and nuanced about Hamas’ bloody murder of 1,300 women, children, and civilians.

The contrast is stunning.
