Megyn Kelly hit out at college campus supporters of Hamas as “liars” and “grifters” that were “too chicken-s–t” to “lift a finger to protect” Jews who are being subjected to “hatred and scorn and threats.”
“The woke left has been exposed in spectacular fashion as a complete and total fraud,” Kelly said during Tuesday’s edition of her SiriusXM news talk program “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
She said that college students who for years “harassed us…about our speech by demanding jobs be taken” for uttering comments deemed racist or insensitive to minorities are now “silent on the open threats and attacks on Jews.”
“They claimed that hate speech should be banned — even rendered unconstitutional — because it is ‘violent’,” Kelly said, mocking left-leaning students for “needing their own ‘safe spaces’ where they would be ‘centered’ and not subjected to ‘triggering’ ideas and arguments.”
“They told us intent to harm did not matter,” Kelly said.
“All that mattered was the effect of one’s words and effect alone would determine whether one’s career, academic record, or ability to function in polite society could continue.”
Kelly hit out at “university presidents” who “allow the Jew hatred to be spewed on the campus quad” and are “now suddenly trying to re-style themselves as free speech warriors.”
“They are grifters, frauds, liars, entitled brats. They have been exposed!” Kelly said.
“And they will suffer.”
College campuses have been flashpoints in the battle for hearts and minds waged by supporters of both sides of the Israel-Palestine dispute.
Harvard University has been heavily criticized by famous alums including former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers and billionaire hedge fund managers Bill Ackman and Ken Griffin for failing to forcefully condemn a student letter that blamed Israel for the Hamas-perpetrated carnage on Oct. 7.
Donors have also pressured the University of Pennsylvania to issue more forceful denunciations of antisemitism in the wake of the Hamas assault, which left at least 1,400 Israeli soldiers and civilians dead.
Kelly blasted administrators at the Cooper Union in Manhattan after viral video appeared to show Jewish students forced to take cover inside a library while pro-Palestinian protesters marched in the adjacent hallways while banging on doors and windows.
