New York University Protest Group Says ‘Join Us if You Hate NYU’

New York University Protest Group Says ‘Join Us if You Hate NYU’

“Students Against Imperialism and Global Expansion”

Is there a better example than this of students protesting for the sake of protesting?

The College Fix reports:

Fledgling New York University student group protests: ‘Join us if you hate NYU’

A brand new New York University student group dubbed SAIGE — Students Against Imperialism and Global Expansion — held a so-called “Disorientation Tour” back on December 5.

According to NYU Local, SAIGE’s purpose is to stand “against imperialism and global expansion,” and look into how they, as students, help “perpetuate [these] struggles.”

At the Washington Square Arch, a whole five or six SAIGE members held signs stating “Join us if you hate NYU” and “NYU was built on forced labor.” In a video they made of the tour, some participants appear rather gleeful at times despite the somber message (below).

The significance of the stops along SAIGE’s tour was noted in a flyer handed out to those interested. Locations included NYU Abu Dhabi’s NYC headquarters, Washington Mews, the Brown Building, and the Bobst Library.

According to the flyer, NYU students are “gathered on land stolen from the Lenape peoples” and should “acknowledge the Lenape community and the exclusions and erasures of indigenous peoples.”

Washington Square, the narrative continues, sits on stolen Lenape land and also was the location of “public executions of black slaves and a burial ground for murdered black and indigenous people …”

I’m a grad of NYU’s GSAS (grad school of arts and sciences). *I* hate NYU because it’s the kind of place that elevates groups of idiots like this. No doubt the admin will seek discourse with these fools and then proclaim “we hear you.” Just watch.

If you hate NYU so much, why do you pay big bucks to go there?
Transfer to Oberlin, but do it quickly before it goes bankrupt.

Since the sixties I have wondered why these schools don’t just throw out students who disrupt classes.
