In October, billionaire Leon Cooperman announced live on FOX Business that he would no longer donate money to Columbia University over the pro-Hamas demonstrations that were taking place there. He said that the students have s**t for brains.
Now another billionaire named Henry Swieca is pulling his support from the school for the same reasons.
This is a very loud wake up call for higher education in America. This is how things get changed.
When these far left indoctrination factories see their funding dry up, they might finally get the message that people are tired of this.
FOX News reports:
Jewish billionaire resigns from Columbia board citing ‘moral cowardice,’ making Jews feel unsafe on campus
A Jewish billionaire and philanthropist has resigned from the Board of Columbia Business School, claiming the Ivy League institution has expressed a “moral cowardice” that has left Jews feeling unsafe on campus.
In an Oct. 30 letter posted to social media one week later, Henry Swieca wrote that he needed to resign to “make a principled stand regarding recent events.”
“To my deep regret, the reputation and integrity of Columbia University, and by extension Columbia Business School, have been significantly compromised by a moral cowardice that appears beyond repair,” he wrote.
Swieca called the recent Hamas attacks against Israel “revolting” and said that statements from the school are “meaningless” when “pro-Hamas students” are allowed to march on campus yelling slogans that call for the destruction of the Jewish state.
“This is abhorrent,” he added. “Any other minority group on campus would never have to face anything close to this level of intimidation and hatred of Jewish and pro-Israel students experience.”
You can see his letter below:

Bravo, Henry Swieca.
All board members of every university that has displayed such moral cowardice should resign with similar letters.
To remain on such boards is to condone antisemitism, nihilism, and jihad.
The civilized world is watching. https://t.co/nhq5A4oBOn

Schools like Harvard and Penn have also lost major donors in recent weeks. This is hitting these far left schools where it hurts. Right in the wallet.
