"There is a profound sickness at our universities," Cruz began. "And sadly, Harvard is the locus for it. And you're right, this is the central topic in my brand new book 'Unwoke: How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America.' And in this book, I address how our elite institutions and how our major institutions in America have been captured by the radical left."
"And the very first chapter starts front and center with the universities. I call the universities the Wuhan lab of the woke virus," he said. "It's where it started. It's where it mutated. It's where it spread. You look at how messed up Harvard is that when the October 7th horrific attacks in Israel happened, when over 1,200 Israelis were murdered, when Hamas terrorists were raping women, were raping little girls, were murdering infants, were literally putting babies in an oven. How did Harvard react? 35 student groups put out a disgraceful statement saying all of the violence by Hamas terrorists is 100% the fault of Israel."
"My book explains why this happened, which is the cultural Marxist views the world in Karl Marx prism between oppressors and victims," Cruz explained. "And for the radical left, they've decided the Jews are the oppressors and the Palestinians are the victims. And accordingly, they support a violent revolution of the victims. And that's why they're cheering on the acts of violence and the murder of children in Israel, because they are rooting for the Hamas terrorists. It's disgraceful."
Senator Cruz is right about his assessment of America's current batch of college students. They have been indoctrinated in a Marxist worldview that enables them to side with anti-democratic, genocidal, and anti-freedom Hamas against the democratic, egalitarian Israelis. The current state of the American campus is truly sad.
