Protecting ‘Extermination Speech’ Is The Wrong Side Of History

via Forbes Breaking News

Elise Stefanik’s recent questioning of university presidents over their response to calls for the genocide of Jews has sparked controversy and led to the resignation of Penn president Liz Magill.

This event reflects Stefanik’s personal conflict with her alma mater and has opened a new front in the culture wars.

Republicans have defended Stefanik, criticizing the administrators’ ideological bubble and groupthink. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Own Memoir Is Coming Back To Haunt Him In Criminal Trial)

Mitch Daniels, the retired former president of Purdue University and a former Republican governor of Indiana, called it “higher ed’s Bud Light moment.”

Adding, “When people who hang out with only people who adhere to what has become prevailing and dominant ideologies on campuses and suddenly discover there’s a world of people out there who disagrees.”

“Were they unprepared?” Daniels rhetorically asked in an interview.

“Yes, they were unprepared by a lifetime of being cloistered in an ideological bubble and groupthink,” he answered.

Speaking at an event Monday, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, a graduate of Harvard Business School, recently commented on the “cultural moment.”

“There is a tipping point, and we have to be clear on where that tipping point is,” said Youngkin.

“And extermination speech is clearly on the wrong side of that tipping point,” he explained.

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said, “The president believes strongly that this is a moment to put your foot down and to ensure we have moral clarity,” while speaking to the press.

Democrats, including Governor Josh Shapiro and Rep. Jake Auchincloss, have also voiced concerns, suggesting a possible realignment of traditional political alliances.

The issue has gained traction in the presidential campaign, with a renewed focus on wokeness and university speech codes.

The controversy has prompted a reevaluation of the arguments made by Stefanik.
