USA Chants Breaks Out at Anti-Israel Protests at Rutgers University


It’s refreshing to see students standing up at Anti-Israel protests.

It seems students at Rutgers University were simply fed up with the anti-American rhetoric appearing on college campuses.

Two major protests were held on Voorhees Mall in New Jersey on Thursday afternoon, one side chanting pro-America, the other pro-Palestinian slogans.

Fox News expands on comments from Stephen Wallace, a junior at Rutgers who was present at the rally:

“We’re tired of it,” he said in a video interview with Fox News Digital. “We’re fed up with the anti-Americanism. We just want to be patriotic again and that’s what I hope for the rest of this country.”

“It’s good that the school is listening to its students. However, I will say that you cannot just let a bunch of students run the whole show,” Wallace said. “If the general population of students here at Rutgers either don’t care, don’t have an opinion or are pro-American, why are we capitulating to people who don’t really care about this country?”

Many people have taken to X to provide their support of the students:

While students have been brave enough to stand up for America, Rutgers gave in to the pressure, succumbing to eight out of the ten demands of the protest.

While the President of Rutgers feels this is a victory as it ended diplomatically, Bill Ackman had a different viewpoint:

Colleges need to start cracking down on these protests, otherwise they will be left with more issues than before.
