ICYMI: Rubio Joins America’s Newsroom 

May 2, 2024 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined America’s Newsroom to discuss the antisemitic protests and riots on college campuses across the country. See below for highlights and watch the full interview on YouTube and Rumble.

On President Biden’s silence on the college campus protests:

“I think [White House staffers] don’t have a lot of confidence in [President Biden’s] ability to communicate. That’s a problem because one of the key jobs of a president in a moment like this is to go before the nation, explain what’s happening, and put it in context, and I don’t think they have a lot of confidence that he has the ability to do that. They’re afraid of what might happen. 

“There are elements of [President Biden’s] activist base, not just in Michigan, but among Democratic Party donors and the like, who sympathize with what these protesters are about.”

On the breakdown of law and order at the protests:

“What you have now is a complete breakdown of law and order. You have hundreds of thousands of American students who can’t go back on campus, who feel threatened, who, in the middle of finals, are being disrupted. [They] paid a lot of money to go to these schools, [but are being disrupted by] a few thousand antisemitic zombies who have been brainwashed by two decades of indoctrination in the belief that the world is divided between victimizers and victims, and that the victimizers in this particular case, the ones that are oppressing people, are Jews in Israel. 

“These people are out there disrupting all of this. It’s a complete breakdown of law and order, and the president is not doing anything about it. The Left is caught in this vise now.”

On the professional agitators involved in the protests:

“The arrest reports will tell us something [about who these agitators are]. But remember, professional agitators are people that are experts in not getting caught. They know how to structure this and then, when the police say it’s time to go, they leave. Then they come back and do it again. 

“I see a bunch of plywood set up. That stuff’s expensive. Trust me. Go to Home Depot, try to buy some plywood. You’ll see how much it costs. Someone is providing funds. This is not some organic movement. I think they’ve picked key areas. It’s not a coincidence that we’re seeing the two ugliest demonstrations in New York and in L.A., big metropolitan areas. 

“But the students have to be [held] responsible for this. It’s important to point out that even if you said…it’s a small percentage of the student body [protesting], they’re disrupting [college] for everybody else.”

On the false ideology fueling the protests:

“You cannot be in favor of this DEI stuff, which basically teaches that the world is about victims and oppressors along racial, gender, and ethnic lines. Eventually, depending on the issue, you will be put into the oppressor class. That’s what’s happened here. 

“The irony of it is that 0.2 percent of the world’s population, which is what Jews represent, the most oppressed minority group in the history of the world, is suddenly [represented as] an imperial power. [There’s this idea that Jews are] about colonialism and empire building, and that they are white settlers in the Middle East. That’s how absurd this is.

“But it eventually comes for you. That’s what’s happened now in this regard. The Left is facing this Frankenstein monster they’ve helped create through 20 years of indoctrination and brainwashing.”
