"The attacks on our Jewish brothers and sisters have to stop."  – Tim Scott

CHARLESTON, SC  Tonight, Tim Scott joined Rob Schmitt on Newsmax to rebuke the radical Left's refusal to call out anti-Semitism in their party. Tim called for the expulsion of students on visas advocating for terrorism on campus and the defunding of schools using tax dollars to platform hate.


Rob Schmitt: I can't believe in lower Manhattan, we're seeing signs celebrating the Hamas attacks. But we are. What's your plan for these people that are just atrocious people?

Sen Scott: It's just unbelievable to see the level of hate and disgusting behavior from people in our country. And I would say to every single person who's come to our country on a student visa who finds themselves protesting on college campuses. When they're shouting for Jewish genocide, when they're advocating for mass murder and when they're supporting terrorism, go home. We should deport these kids on college campuses who are encouraging genocide, who are encouraging murder, and who are supporting terrorism. We have no place on our college campuses. And frankly, for those colleges and universities who cannot figure that out, we should remove the federal funds. We Americans do not want our tax dollars supporting terrorism. We do not want our tax dollars giving a platform for genocide. We refuse to use American tax dollars for those who believe in mass murder, especially on university and college campuses where those administrations refuse to do so because they're more interested in the tuition than they are truth

There's no doubt that when you look at the brass tacks, what we've learned over the last several months, and frankly the last two weeks, is that the radical Left, they're willing to weaponize race. They're willing to weaponize any single issue, any group of people, to maintain their political power. That's why they refuse to bring the Squad in and say "either you get in line or we expel you from the House," take away your committee assignments. They're so afraid of speaking the truth to the Squad and to anti-Semitic individuals in their party that they're just silent. Silence makes you complicit with the very comments that we hear ringing around the nation. I'm having Jewish friends, business owners coming in looking for ways to secure and fortify their businesses. The attacks on our Jewish brothers and sisters has to stop. And you shouldn't have to be Jewish to stand in the gap for common sense, decency and for truth. That's America. We stand for freedom.
