Clueless Columbia protester demands school get ‘basic humanitarian aid’ to pro-terror rioters: ‘Do you want students to die?’

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A clueless Columbia University protester demanded Tuesday that the school help get “basic humanitarian aid” such as food and water to the   anti-Israel rioters illegally occupying   a campus building.

“Like, could people please have a glass of water?’’ the young woman told reporters outside Hamilton Hall, which a defiant mob of pro-terror protesters violently stormed early Tuesday and took over.

“Do you want students to die of dehydration and starvation or get severely ill even if they disagree with you? If the answer is no, then you should allow basic, I mean, it’s crazy to say because we’re on an Ivy League campus, but this is like basic humanitarian aid we’re asking for,’’ the protester said, according to footage posted to X.

An incredulous reporter replied, “It seems like you’re sort of saying, ‘We want to be revolutionaries, we want to take over this building, now would you please bring us some food and water.’’’


The protester replied, “Nobody’s asking them to bring anything.

Asked if the university had tried to stop supplies from being brought to the illegal occupiers, the protester admitted she actually didn’t know.

“We are looking for a commitment from them that they will not stop it,’’ the woman said. “I do not know to what extent it has been attempted. But we’re looking for a commitment.’’

Video of people   passing food to women   inside a gate around Columbia was posted to X on Tuesday.

An organizer of the university’s weekslong anti-Israel encampment also whined Tuesday about the campus lockdown — claiming it was “making life incredibly difficult’’ for students.

Sueda Polat, a grad student at the prestigious Manhattan school, seemed oblivious to the fact that rioters from the pup-tent city illegally erected on Columbia’s campus caused the major education disruption by hijacking Hamilton Hall.

She boasted that the building occupiers were not leaving “anytime soon’’ — and that they were being protected by members of the faculty helping to encircle the site.

Polat scoffed that the most severe school repercussion to date — threatened possible expulsion for participating students — would only cause protesters to dig their heels in even more.

“Today they locked down the university in an unprecedented way, making life incredibly difficult for the thousands of students who need access to this campus on a daily basis,’’ Polat said of the school.

“There are students here doing their thesis defenses, there’s members of staff who have research work,” she added.

“By closing the university, they have stopped the function of the university, whereas the student protests have never done that,’’ Polat claimed — even as many students   have described severe hardship continuing their studies   and even getting food on campus because of the chaos.

The protest leader blamed the mob’s take-over of the historic building on “an autonomous group of students” angry that “obstinance’’ and “arrogance’’ by Columbia stopped negotiations between the school and demonstrators.

One of the protesters’ main demands is for Columbia to divest from companies involved with Israel, which declared war on Hamas in Gaza after the Palestinian terror group’s massacre in Israel on Oct. 7.

“The university shouldn’t be surprised there is an escalation in protest behavior on this campus,’’ Polat said. “[School administrators] kept us occupied for 11 to 12 days when we were negotiating with them, sometimes for 10 hours a day, and consequently got no results from those negotiations.

They've adopted all the neo-marxist lingo and signed onto the progressive hive mind and are ready, willing able to lead the next maoist cultural revolution if only they can remain pampered and suffer no inconveniences or consequences. 

We can't survive as a country if they ever actually obtain power.

Add to this that they can't comprehend how anyone can possibly see things differently than they do. They can only view it as evidence that they are right, because there could not be an argument that could justify opposition to their cause. An argument against them doesn't even have to be heard, let alone considered because they are so obviously right. 

That is how this girl can ask for these things. Her cause is so obviously right, in her view, that she can't comprehend why anyone would deny her.

Her interview is going viral for obvious reasons.   I find it hard to believe it's actually real, but it is

Her biography is also too good to make up.  She analyzes  "poetry through a Marxian lens" and naturally was a progressive activist before being allowed to teach at Columbia.  I don't know how Columbia's reputation ever recovers from this and I have no idea what purpose paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to be educated by a genuine idiot like this serves. 

An indictment of the entire university.

Still wondering if that loan forgiveness is going to show up on a credit report/ check, if it does that's grounds for a landlord to deny a rental app.

In my opinion, the purpose is to disassociate young minds from reality. You take a fundamentally flawed philosophy, such as Marxism, and teach all the technical terms to them. There are a lot of technical terms involved. To understand Marx, you have to spend a lot of time trying to figure how all the terms make a cohesive whole. Once the student has the whole picture, they make the mistake of not realizing they've only been learning a philosophy rather than reality. Their teachers help them along with mistaking it for something real by any means they can. And Marxism allows for a lot of really immoral thinking in order to achieve its goals. The "struggle" is justification for a lot of nasty stuff, as we've seen in every Communist country ever. 

My generation and my forefather's generation fought to hold back Marxism but they snuck in through colleges and universities engendered by the Frankfurt school of thought on Marxism and other institutions. Now we are losing our country through slow poison and I'm wondering if it is too late. 

Anyway, this is why she works there. You don't accidentally hire someone like this.

At UCLA, progressive protesters are denying Jews access to the library through the use of checkpoints.

Biden remains silent.  If his handling of Israel/Hamas is any guide, he's probably demanding jewish students give into all demands and stop trying to use the library.

NYPD riot police storm barricaded Columbia building to dislodge protesters

New York Police Department   riot police officers stormed Hamilton Hall at   Columbia University, which had been occupied and barricaded by protesting students.

On Tuesday night, hundreds of NYPD officers with tactical vehicles arrived on campus, sealing it off. An email from the university went out to students, ordering them to stay in place.

After securing the perimeter, police began to arrest protesters. Riot police then moved on to Hamilton Hall, using a tactical vehicle to force entry through a second-story window.

Videos showed an armored vehicle lowering a drawbridge near the window, which was then opened by riot police and entered. The police were seen in full tactical gear, with riot shields and appearing to have guns drawn. About 100 people were  reportedly  arrested.
