University of Texas-Austin


The recent demonstration at the University of Texas-Austin vividly showcases the contrasting approaches of red states and blue states towards upholding the rule of law.

Red states


Red states like Texas, led by Governor Greg Abbott and UT-Austin’s President Jay Hartzell, tackle such challenges with resolve and authority. In Austin, Hartzell stood firm against the disruptive anti-Semitic protests that were jeopardizing the safety, purpose, and functioning of the university.

Law enforcement


Following the deployment of Texas law enforcement on campus, Hartzell addressed the community in a detailed statement. According to Fox News, he emphasized the importance of upholding the university’s rules while safeguarding the constitutional right to free speech.

No repercussions


In contrast, blue states have fostered a culture where there are no repercussions for disregarding the rule of law. This has empowered young activists to disrupt institutions like Columbia University, New York University, and Yale University, among others.



The key distinction lies in the locations of these protests, highlighting how the educational system has shaped a generation influenced by left-leaning ideologies that threaten the foundation of our nation and its future prospects. It appears that we are intentionally undermining ourselves from within.



Hartzell made it clear that peaceful protests within the rules are acceptable, but any violations of the rules, disruptions to learning, or plans to contravene institutional policies will not be tolerated. Despite the arrests of around 34 students on campus, Hartzell affirmed that the university will not be occupied.

Mike Johnson


Meanwhile, House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana, faced a challenging situation at Columbia University as he attempted to reason with students involved in anti-Semitic protests.



Despite his efforts to explain, educate, and promote peace, he was met with heckling and increasing frustration. It became evident that his attempts to engage with the students were futile from the start.



By transitioning to a predominantly remote or “hybrid” learning approach to ensure the safety of all students, President Minouche Shafik made a clear statement about leadership within the university. The spread of this issue has already permeated our nation like a metastasized cancer.



Liberal institutions and left-leaning states have inadvertently contributed to this spread. Cancer is not known to be placated; it is typically eradicated through direct and forceful action.



Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin concurred with students’ intentions to disrupt and assert their will, as he expressed in a comment on the social media platform X. “Texas DPS isn’t going to take a passive approach like you may see in other jurisdictions.”



Hartzell expressed gratitude towards those who played a role in suppressing the protest. “We are grateful for the countless staff members and state and University law enforcement officers, as well as support personnel who exercised extraordinary restraint in the face of a difficult situation that is playing out at universities across the country,” he said, according to Fox News.



“There is a way to exercise freedom of speech and civil discourse, and our Office of the Dean of Students has continued to offer ways to ensure protests can happen within the rules. The University of Texas will continue to take necessary steps so that all our University functions proceed without interruption.”



Gov. Greg Abbott commented on X, “Arrests being made right now & will continue until the crowd disperses. These protesters belong in jail. Antisemitism will not be tolerated in Texas. Period.” “Students joining in hate-filled, antisemitic protests at any public college or university in Texas should be expelled.”
