Harvard University students are circulating a petition calling for revoking degrees from Trump supporters and aides who attended the elite Ivy League institution following the Capitol riots in DC.
Radical Left seeking to destroy Trump supporters
According to the report from Fox Business, a copy of the petition states that supporters of President Trump were involved in spreading the “disinformation and mistrust” that led to last week’s deadly riot at the United States Capitol Building.
The petition is entitled, “Revoke their Degrees,” and was reportedly circulated by four students on campus who attend Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
The petition calls on the university to be “Prepared to take a stand for representative democracy and against violent white supremacy,” by specifically revoking degrees of three Harvard graduates who are supporters of the president: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
The petition described all of these as “violent actors” who need to be held accountable for their alleged actions. The report states that a spokesman for Harvard declined to comment other than to say the university is aware of the petition. McEnany, Cruz and Crenshaw had no immediate comment.
Lefties declare war on patriots
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said U.S. officials should place people who were inside the Capitol building on the federal “no fly” list.
“We cannot allow these same insurrectionists to get on a plane and cause more violence and more damage,” Schumer said at a news briefing. He discussed the matter with FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin of the Washington office told a news conference on Tuesday that the Justice Department has identified more than 170 potential suspects in the Capitol violence to date and charged more than 70.
Asked about the possibility of adding suspects to the no-fly list, Steven M. D’Antuono, an FBI official who heads the Washington Field Office, said it is “something that we are actively looking at.”
Schumer said in a letter on Tuesday to the FBI and Transportation Security Administration, “it is an attempt to stop democracy as we know it, using domestic terrorism to assault our system of government, thereby qualifying these insurrectionists for the No-Fly List.”
