Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had dozens of students walk out on her lecture at Columbia University, protesting the alleged shaming of pro-Palestinian students who appeared on a “doxxing truck.”
There were roughly 300 students attending Clinton’s ironic lecture on women’s involvement in peace processes Wednesday afternoon when the staged walkout took place. Clinton was speaking with Keren Yarhi-Milo, the dean of Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs.
She didn’t even make it halfway through the class when approximately 30 students stood up, grabbed their laptops and backpacks, and exited stage left. They gathered with several dozen other protesters near the lobby of the building.
These same students penned a letter stating that Israel was at fault for the Oct. 7 massacre by terrorists. They were protesting a conservative non-profit organization called “Accuracy In Media” that made use of a “doxxing truck” to advertise those standing against Israel after the slaughter of over 1,400 Israelis and the kidnapping of hundreds more, including Americans by Hamas.
“The weight of responsibility for the war and casualties undeniably lies with the Israeli extremist government and other Western governments, including the U.S. government, which fund and staunchly support Israeli aggression, apartheid, and settler-colonization,” a statement from the students reads.
“The demonstrators, who sat quietly in a common area in the International Affairs Building — many of them in face masks — were protesting what they perceived as the school’s role in publicly shaming students whose photographs appeared last week on the video screen panels on a truck seen near campus. The screens showed the faces of students beneath the words ‘Columbia’s Leading Antisemites.’ The students said the photographs were taken from a ‘private and secure’ online platform for students at the School of International and Public Affairs,” the New York Times wrote.
The pro-Palestinian students are incensed that Clinton is supporting Israel and rejected calls for a ceasefire earlier this week.
Hillary Clinton explains why calling for ceasefire is misguided:
“People who are calling for a ceasefire now do not understand Hamas, that is not possible. It would be such a gift to Hamas because they would spend whatever time there was a ceasefire in effect rebuilding their… pic.twitter.com/3hBfk71KtI

The protesters demanded “immediate legal support for affected students” and “a commitment to student safety, well-being and privacy.”
“As Dr. Yarhi-Milo and Mrs. Clinton’s class was finishing around 4 p.m., the demonstrators shushed themselves into silence, anticipating that the dean and the former secretary of state would soon walk past the gathered students. That time never came. Word spread that Dr. Yarhi-Milo and Mrs. Clinton had left the building through a side door,” the New York Times continued.
“A spokeswoman for Columbia said the university had no comment. The protest came the day after the school announced a new task force on doxxing and student safety,” the outlet added.
The HuffPost reported, “The Columbia students who joined Wednesday’s action called on their university to cover legal representation for the targeted students and take steps to protect their privacy.”
Clinton is having a bad month. This walkout follows her being heckled the week before by another activist over President Biden’s “warmongering, suicidal, idiotic speech” on foreign aid.
My friends Robert Castle & @ZSimonMillerZ of the @SchillerInst confronted the warmongering queen herself @HillaryClinton. Robert begins by calling out her hypocrisy and clearly stating her entire talk is just warmonger. Part 2 coming soon.

“I’ll meet you outside. You’re done,” Clinton informed him, dismissing the heckler.
She was also confronted by a man who was forcibly dragged out of an event she was speaking at in Houston, Texas last week by guards after screaming at her about former President Bill Clinton visiting Jeffrey Epstein’s private island. His shirt was basically ripped off in the process but the guy didn’t relent.

As he was hauled out of the venue by his shirt across the floor, Alex Rosen, the leader of iFightForKids, yelled at the guards, “Is this really necessary officer, you guys are dragging a grown man. Is this necessary? Come on.”
