Washington, D.C.- Today, the New York Post reported that House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik is demanding the president of her alma mater, Harvard University, Claudine Gay, resign after she again declined to condemn or punish Harvard students who blamed Israel for Hamas's barbaric terrorist attacks. Earlier in the day, Stefanik and Sen. Ted Cruz led their fellow Harvard alums in Congress in sending a letter to Claudine Gay demanding a clear condemnation of antisemitism.
According to the New York Post:
“House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) called on the president of her alma mater, Harvard University, to resign Friday after the academic again declined to condemn or punish students who blamed Israel for last week’s Hamas terrorist attacks.
“Harvard continues to disgrace itself on the global stage,” Stefanik, who graduated from the Ivy League university in 2006, posted on X.
“Antisemitism should be condemned and NEVER defended as ‘free expression.’ Claudine Gay should resign,” she added to the Harvard president’s third statement since Hamas launched rocket and ground attacks on southern Israel that slaughtered more than 1,300 people, including at least 27 Americans.
“Stefanik and six other members of Congress who are also Harvard alumni wrote a letter to Gay on Friday expressing “outrage” that she had not yet repudiated the “dangerous antisemitism” expressed by the organizations that agreed to the letter.”
