Failed their students

“The leadership and faculty of so many of our leading educational institutions have failed their students,” Kraft said in the ad.

Authority

“They have not only given up their positions of authority, but also their moral compasses in upholding the core missions of these colleges and universities – to protect their students and the principles of critical thinking and free speech – to teach how to think, not what to think.

Hate filled

“Shouting vile, hate filled labels at students while hiding behind masks is not free speech—it is cowardice,” the ad continued.

Core principles

Youtube

“Instead of colleges and universities teaching the core principles of free speech and debate our country was founded on, they are emboldening hate that is tearing their campuses, and our youth apart.”

Not be pardoned

Kraft said that students should not be pardoned for their actions.

Accountable

“They need to be held accountable in order to send a message to future generations of students – that it is necessary to adhere to the rules of civil society and the codes of conduct of academic communities, and that free speech means standing behind your words and accepting the consequences of your actions,” he said.

Kraft echoed

Kraft echoed some of those sentiments on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Wednesday night.
