Pro-Palestinian student activists have taken over the Ruthven Building on the University of Michigan campus. CBS News reports:
‘Members of the Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE) and a coalition of 45 other student organizations rallied on campus beginning at 3 p.m., calling for the university to divest from companies they say contributed to the crisis in Gaza.
A U of M spokesperson said about 200 protestors ‘forcefully gained access to a locked Ruthven Administration Building.’
SAFE is the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter at U of M.

It’s always the left.
You only see this behavior from one side and it continues because schools and law enforcement won’t take serious action against those engaging it. https://t.co/dvXtFL0pQx

The left always thinks they can control the mobs they inspire with their relentless rhetoric.
Maybe if the university hadn’t indoctrinated students in a dogma that divides the world into oppressors v oppressed, they wouldn’t have produced a bunch of violent idiots forcing their way into the President’s office. You reap what you sow. https://t.co/RyaafeU6Na

They really think they’re the good guys.
If this is your side and you see this behavior, how are you like, “Yeah, right side of history for sure.” ???? https://t.co/6sHGPy2xJZ

Can you imagine the reaction from the media and the Squad?
Why hasn’t the President sent the National Guard to college campuses to protect the civil rights of Jewish students, faculty, and staff and to restore order? This is madness. https://t.co/KYiDeth7Fu

The left is always ‘protesting.’
Never ending goon squad.
It’s not clashes – it’s radical leftists supporting Hamas terrorists subsequently terrorizing America’s institutions, and constantly overwhelming security and law enforcement at ‘protests.’ https://t.co/H7bXxuvzpq

Compare to a recent pro-Israel rally.
Meanwhile, we held a peaceful Parent’s Weekend rally at the Diag exactly two weeks ago. https://t.co/NUaFZMArCf pic.twitter.com/PK7aPk2nZp

It does seem like all protest all the time.
Does anyone in college actually go to class? https://t.co/NFSYu5vIV0

If only leftwing students/activists ever had to face consequences for their actions.
Expel them all. https://t.co/oAeoh0ODLK

This is a developing story! Keep an eye out! But we predict the media will simply categorize it as yet another brave and peaceful protest against injustice.
Another day, another violent leftwing ‘protest.’
