The song and focus of the pro-Hamas, anti-Israel demonstrations remain the same, wherever they happen. So with college graduations across America upon us, what better target is there for the low-information, antisemitic demonstrators to try to destroy?

Such was the topic on Friday’s episode of ABC’s “Good Morning America.” And of course, with “Good Morning America” being Good Morning America,” the take was predictably sympathetic to the demonstrators.

At issue for the GMA crew was the notion of universities choosing to protect graduates on their special day, rather than allowing their delusional classmates — along with outside agitators and organizers — to ruin it.

Co-anchor Michael Strahan feigned shock at the top of the relative segment:

We’re going to turn now to the new clashes on college campuses across the country including the arrests just moments ago at the University of Pennsylvania. Victor Oquendo is tracking the very latest for us. Good morning, Victor.

Victor is a piece of work, by the way, as evidenced by his attempt to kick up faux tension as he responded:

Good morning, Michael. Around the country this morning, tensions ratcheting up across college campuses.

And who’s to blame for those “tensions,” Victor? 

Let’s start at the University of Arizona, where they are gearing up for their graduation ceremony later today. Law enforcement spring what appears to be teargas on roughly 100 protesters gathered by the university’s main gate. This is the second time this month that chemical irritants have been used to disperse protesters on campus.

OK, wait. “Chemical irritants”? 

Dude, we’re not talking about chemical weapons of war, here. Besides, your operative word was “dispersed,” as opposed to injured or maimed. Moreover, “dispersing” those intent on “dispersing” college graduates from their graduation ceremony is the preferred option— like it or not.

Oquendo cluelessly continued— with an objective:

Over to George Washington University in D.C., hundreds of protesters gathering on a street that includes the home of the president of the university, shutting down traffic and setting up tents. And this comes just one day after police cleared the encampment on campus there.

In other words, “Look how peacefully the good people at George Washington University did it? They didn’t unleash chemical irritants on innocent protesters like the bad police did at the University of Arizona!”

Victor wasn’t finished:

And here in Los Angeles, the University of Southern California canceled the official graduation, opting instead to what they called “a celebration” at the L.A. Coliseum. Students there instead of walking and getting their diploma onstage, they were treated to a drone and fireworks show.

“Treated”? Oh, please. 

I’ll go out on a safe limb and bet that UCLA seniors who worked damn hard for their degrees would much rather have been “treated” to the graduation ceremony they had envisioned than a fireworks show — drones or not.
