“Please look out for one another and recognize that some are struggling.”
This should come as no surprise. Middlebury College is a hotbed of woke leftism.

Middlebury refuses to condemn Hamas, readily condemned Russia for invading Ukraine
In an email sent to students, faculty, staff, and alumni on Monday, Oct. 9, Middlebury College did not specifically condemn Hamas for waging terror on Israel even though the institution had condemned Russia for invading Ukraine in 2022.
“We ask that each of us acts with sensitivity, empathy, and care with the understanding that we as a community and as individuals may be processing these events differently and through the lens of our own experiences,” a screenshot posted to X by Middlebury alum Erielle Davidson states. “Please look out for one another and recognize that some are struggling.”
“Open expression and the free exchange of ideas are core to the Middlebury mission,” the email also states. “However, there is no place here for hate, racism, ethnic discrimination, antisemitism, or Islamophobia.”
Davidson, who shared the screenshot online and called Middlebury’s response “embarrassing,” received several replies.
“@Middlebury we now know you would stand on the side of Nazi Germany,” one X user replied. “You stand with Hamas. Antisemitism is alive and well in America. It saturates academia where sick academics seek to marinate evil ideologies into the minds and hearts of young people. We now see the results.”
Davidson also screenshotted and posted Middlebury’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “Russia’s aggression against its democratic neighbor is a violation of international law, made only more egregious by its escalation in the face of international condemnation,” the message reads.
“We condemn in the strongest way terrorism such as we have seen today perpetrated against innocent civilians; we support Israel’s right to defend itself,” Liebowitz wrote.
