Rep. Burlison leads letter to Columbia University donors amid rise in antisemitic attacks on campus

Congressman Burlison released the following statement on his letter:

“Why would donors continue writing checks to subsidize illiterate morons? These universities are no longer producing the future leaders of America, and I applaud those who have committed to withdrawing financial support and encourage other to follow suit until significant changes are made, starting with the resignation of President Minouche Shafik,” said Congressman Eric Burlison (MO-7) 

Congresswoman Burlison was joined by Reps. Jeff Van Drew (NJ-2), Brandon Williams, NY-22), Josh Brecheen (OK-2), Russell Fry (SC-7), Andy Ogles (TN-5), Ronny L. Jackson (TX-13), Randy Weber (TX-14), Troy Nehls (TX-22), Anthony D'Esposito (NY-4), Mike Collins (GA-10), Keith Self (TX-3), Jason Smith (MO-8), Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), Bob Good (VA-5).

 “Donors and alumni of Columbia University should cease all support for the university until President Shafik resigns and until the university proves it can protect Jewish students and stand against antisemitism. I applaud Congressman Burlison for leading this effort,” said Congressman Josh Brecheen (OK-2). 

“Meaningful change at institutions at times requires making them feel it in their pocketbook. It’s shameful that this once prestigious institution has been hijacked by the radical left. Shafik must resign, or else her disastrous leadership will forever stain the reputation of Columbia,” said Congressman Brandon Williams (NY-22). 

“Liberal privilege has never been more apparent than what we are seeing at these “elite” universities from students and faculty who are proudly Antisemitic and shamelessly supporting Hamas. These university leaders have FAILED their Jewish students, and need to be held accountable for poisoning the minds of generations of Americans.  

These protestors are supporting terrorism and should be treated as a foreign terrorist threat. Instead, these snowflake protestors are thrown in jail for minutes, just to be bailed out by Soros-funded groups, and most are not even being charged with anything. It is ridiculous. Unfortunately, that is the reality Americans are forced to live in under the leadership of Joe Biden who doesn’t have the guts to stick it to these extremist university leaders and terrorist-sympathizers. Thank you to Rep. Burlison for leading on this initiative to combat the troubling trend of antisemitism on college campuses,” said Congressman Ronny L. Jackson (TX-13). 

“Failure to take swift and direct action to stop blatant antisemitism cannot be overlooked. Until Columbia University fires President Shafik and makes significant strides to right their wrongs, donors and alumni should pull their support,” said Congressman Russell Fry (SC-7).
