McGill University Student Appears to Spit on School President at Graduation Before Unfurling Anti-Israel Banner

McGill University Student Appears to Spit on School President at Graduation Before Unfurling Anti-Israel Banner

“The university remains firmly committed to peaceful and respectful dialogue, even on the most divisive and painful issues.”

A student at McGill University in Quebec appeared to spit on the school president as she was presented with her diploma, before unrolling an anti-Israel banner with a BDS related message on it.

One has to wonder if she had family in the audience and how they feel about her behavior.

The College Fix reported:

Anti-Israel student ‘spits’ on school president, other faculty while receiving diploma

A graduating pro-Palestinian student at McGill University made “spitting motions” at two faculty members, including, allegedly, the school president, while receiving her diploma this past week.

The unidentified student also unfurled a banner which read “Divest from Death.”

According to The Gazette, the official McGill video of the ceremony does not show the student making the spitting motions (it remains unclear if she actually spit) nor holding up the banner. But unedited versions (below) began circulating on social media.

In a statement, McGill said it was “focused on the ceremony itself, and therefore did not notice if the graduating student spat.”

It added, however, “it was […] clear the student was yelling and highly disrespectful. The university remains firmly committed to peaceful and respectful dialogue, even on the most divisive and painful issues.”

Citing privacy concerns McGill refused to say if the student would face any discipline, but did note it would take action if the student code of conduct or the law were “breached.”

See the video below:

Just a few days ago, anti-Israel students at McGill took over a campus building and had to be removed by police.

From the CBC, via Yahoo News Canada:

Police use tear gas on crowd as pro-Palestinian activists occupy McGill University building

Montreal police fired tear gas at a crowd of pro-Palestinian protesters outside McGill University’s James Administration Building, where activists had blockaded themselves on the third floor Thursday evening.

Around 6 p.m. inside the building on the university’s downtown campus, masked demonstrators could be seen opening windows, chanting and waving a Palestinian flag on what appeared to be the third floor.

A line of police officers stood on the street below, but soon the protest grew larger, with protesters occupying the campus square and carrying banners. About an hour into the protest, police in riot gear appeared in the windows where protesters had been. They began to shut the windows and removed flags and banners, including one that said, “You could have divested 41 days ago.”

Around 7:30 p.m., officers used tear gas and pepper spray to disperse the crowd outside the building.

Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR) McGill posted a lengthy statement on Telegram, saying the university has so far shut down its demands for McGill to divest from companies with ties to Israel.

Sounds like a charming student body, doesn’t it?

A corruption of the language that has gained almost universal acceptance surrounds the verb, “graduate.” The institution; not the student, graduates. The proper usage is Mr. Robert Smith was graduated from Yale. Mr. Smith did not graduate from Yale. Since the institution has the sole power to confer a degree, it likewise has the power to deny or revoke it. Spitting at faculty during a graduation ceremony should always result in degree denial.

it would take action IF the student code of conduct or the law were “breached.”….

Good lord the leftist lunatics are held to exactly zero standards of conduct and all laws are suspended so they can engage in their antics pushing hate and destruction. In most places that would be considered assault.

Nothing would sate banal desire like cold-cocking one of these wastes of flesh squarely in that spitting mouth…yet we withdraw that desire as we know violence solves nothing…hence our inaction and their maevolence.

    Everyone thinks they know that violence never solves anything.
    Of course, the anniversary celebrations at the end of last week show proof that is not true.

      Violence must be met with violence…I agree.
      The threat of retalitory violence is what has kept totaltarianistic types at bay. It is the perfect balance of power, no matter how uncooperative it may appear.

So stunning. So brave.

The administration is captive to their liberalism. They exhibit the same “turn away” as the Jews in Germany in the early 30’s. That attitude is just as dangerous today as it was then. FJB

The leftist totalitarians sure are winning hearts and minds with their antics. I suspect that if Pierre Poilievre heads the next Canadian Gov’t it will be far less inclined to offer public funds for those who indulge in these narcissistic theatrics.

How are any investors, universities or otherwise, supposed to know if the companies they invest in, when they buy the SP500, or any other index, are engaged in commerce with Israel? Where does that end? Why not include muslim countries with human rights records violations?

destroycommunism | June 10, 2024 at 11:06 am

why is the student not being identified???

allllll criminals of alll ages should be identified

the public has THE RIGHT to know

the leftys narrative of rehabilitation is as legit as another AOC rant about ted cruz attacking her

destroycommunism | June 10, 2024 at 11:08 am

b/c the left has always coddled the criminals

people fear for their own safety so the violence against civilized society continues unabated

They seem like a nice person. But I would avoid putting this on your resume.

I honestly believe that most of these protestor-students have no actual plans for using their degrees.

College is, for them, a sort of daycare.

destroycommunism | June 10, 2024 at 11:40 am

The left claims the student did not spit but has a stuttering disorder where liquid involuntarily leaves the mouth
and now plans to sue anyone saying the student spit

Antifundamentalist | June 10, 2024 at 11:44 am

If the university truly “remains firmly committed to peaceful and respectful dialogue” then it will determine that this students’ actions violated the code of student conduct & will punish the student by withholding the degree and updating the student transcript with an expulsion.

A proper response would have been to punch the student in the mouth. Then have a provost escort the student from the property while tearing up their diploma and preventing them from ever claiming credit for it.

This “violence never solved anything” sure has destroyed our society by allowing bullies and brats to walk all over “civilized” people.

    It’s not very popular, but violence has, can, and will solve many problems. When reason fails, violence, properly applied, is the only thing that stands between civilization and barbarism. The public’s lack of understanding of this fact has led to striping police departments country wide of their will to maintain public order. There is going to be a whirlwind to reap.

Nasty little fascist! What is her name?

The attitude that says one can assault others because they have a different view is abhorrent. Like a young Maoist Red Guard youth.

Correction and punishment is due.

    In some ‘hoods they assault or even kill you if they even THINK you dissed them or looked at them oddly. Same thing. Your opposing viewpoint will be met with a violent reaction by the left, they think it is justified.

THEY attacked him and he punched one of the Its right in the snout!!!
