Biden Gives Nod to Campus Protest During Morehouse Speech, Lawmakers Push to Protect ******* Students

President Biden delivered the commencement speech at Morehouse College in Atlanta on Sunday, marking his first appearance at a college amid the unrest and anti-******* protests being stirred on campuses across the country.

Biden addressed the *******-****** war head-on, giving a nod to pro-************ sentiment among Morehouse students and faculty.

“I support peaceful nonviolent protest,” he told students at the historic ******, all-male college, some of whom wore keffiyehs, or ************ scarves,  around their shoulders on top of their ****** graduation gowns. “Your voices should be heard, and I promise you I hear them.”

Biden told graduates he is pushing for an “immediate ceasefire to stop the fighting and bring the hostages home.” 

So far, the president has limited his public comments on the college campus protests, saying he upholds the right to peaceful protest.

blasting the bill saying, “criticism of the state of *******, the ******** government, policies of the ******** government, or Zionist ideology is not — in and of itself — anti-Semitic.”

“Making ******* students and ******* faculty feel safe is a separate issue from free speech,” Dr. David Frankfurter, a Boston University professor, told CBN’s ****** Nation “there are many ways of disciplining both students, in mild ways, if they are saying ******* things and faculty if they are saying offensive things but we do not have to make it an issue of anti-Semitism. This is not what anti-Semitism is.”

Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J., co-author of the legislation, says passing the “bill is a critical step to take the action we so desperately need to stand against hate.”
