Female native american protestor beat up by male hamas protestors. I guess it'll take the left a while to figure out which is the more oppressed party here.

With universities finally starting to crack down on protestors, apparently a lot of them are waking up to the realization that actions have consequences.

So, their new demand is...

AMNESTY!

MMmmmm.... how about.... No.

Who knew that all you need to do to put the kibosh on a commie protest is to show up with some bananas?

I saw that this morning and am wondering how many countries that Netanyahu would travel to would cooperate with the ICC and let him be arrested on their soil?

I don't know much about the ICC, but have always thought of them as ineffectual, much like the UN.

Has the ICC issued arrest warrants for Hamas' leadership?

In the article they say they may do that as well.

I'd be shocked if they actually do.

But that at least would give the lil university chillruns something new to protest... international persecution of freedom fighters or some such *expletive deleted*it.

Looks like the Columbia protestors will be getting a free pass.

So, they ran up the white flag of conciliation.

Good for them.

Lissie is an anarchist student who is part of the group that has taken over Cal Poly Humboldt.

In this video, she plants “sacred olives" outside "Intifada Hall”

Later, she was attacked by other students for planting “non-native species on occupied land”

1) My head hurts.

2) "Intifada Hall"? They should be immediately expelled, and where is Mayorkas with his anti "domestic terrorist extremist" squad? I'm labeled an extremist by fed.gov and these aholes aren't? GTFO.

Remember in the other thread where I said somethings deserve a violent response? 

Sure, he might be able to sue down the road, if he can figure out who those masked people were, but he can't be made whole. He still didn't get to class. If they dothis longer ought, he could lose the whole semester.  Even if UCLA let's him take the class again free, that is time he never gets back.  These protesters have stolen time from that kid's finite life.


I know the CA legal system,  and the UC system, will not allow it, but he should have been allowed to do what was needed to carry on with his life unimpeded.

I wish when these confrontations happen the recipient of the hate/attack would counter that if the perp's cause was so just they wouldn't need to hide their identity behind masks. Cowards.

Given some of the actions in previous days, this gives an idea of how much it costs for the US Navy to shoot down drones.

US needs cheaper ways to shoot down drones, Pentagon acquisition chief says

Quote
Since October, American forces in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden have been shooting down Houthi one-way attack drones and missiles fired from Yemen or before they can be launched. By mid-December 2023, that was at more than three dozen shootdowns. This spring there have been more than 130. The U.S. military has not shared all of the details of what weapons are used in these operations, but the Standard Missile-2, a medium-range surface-to-air missile can cost $2.1 million per shot. After several months of shooting down UAS, that bill is likely high and feeding into the Pentagon’s efforts to find cheaper, cost-cutting alternatives.

Interestingly, I saw a snippet on the news this morning from a Congressional hearing where this point exactly was argued - that the hamas kids were committing theft among their other crimes by stealing the education other students were paying for. Because Brtandon certainly isn't talking about jewish student loan forgiveness.

Additionally I saw that at Columbia, the hamas kids took over a building and have been destroying it. This is pretty much what the left said 06JAN protestors did. Hamas is a documented terrorist organization. All these kids need 20 year prison sentences. Out of equity.

Also I made the mistake of reading a few Reddit threads on this nationwide debacle this morning. Probably 90% of the comments are sympathetic to the students, calling them "intelligent and brave".
