“Speech that promotes, advocates, or supports violence, murder, or terrorism cannot and should never be tolerated.”
Some people are not going to make it through this situation unscathed. The radical left was so confident in their position that they willingly outed themselves.
The Yale Daily News reports:
Petition to oust pro-Palestine professor for ‘promoting lies and violence’ gains 25,000 signatures in just over a day
A Tuesday petition calling for Yale to fire professor Zareena Grewal has amassed over 25,000 signatures.
The petition, titled “Remove Zareena Grewal from the Yale Faculty for Promoting LIES and VIOLENCE,” cites a series of tweets by Grewal about the war in Israel and Gaza. At the top of the petition is a screenshot of a tweet that Grewal posted the morning of Saturday, Oct. 7, following militant group Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel and subsequent retaliatory airstrikes on Gaza.
“My heart is in my throat,” the tweet reads. “Prayers for Palestinians. Israel is a murderous, genocidal settler state and Palestinians have every right to resist through armed struggle, solidarity #FreePalestine.”
By 10 p.m., approximately one hour after author Netanel Crispe ’25 posted the petition to change.org, it reached 1,000 signatures; the original signature goal was 500.
The signature count had increased to 10,000 by 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11, roughly 13 hours after the petition launched.
“Freedom of Speech cannot be abused,” the petition begins. “And when one is in a position of authority and power, they must be held responsible for that speech. Speech that promotes, advocates, or supports violence, murder, or terrorism cannot and should never be tolerated.”
Grewal — who is a professor of American Studies, of Ethnicity, Race, and Migration and of Religious Studies — did not respond to the News’ request for comment. Her account on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, had been made private as of 7 p.m on Wednesday, Oct. 11.
