Tom Cotton Slams Pro-Hamas Protesters: ‘They Deserve Our Contempt’ And ‘Our Mockery’

Tom Cotton

Over the weekend, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) slammed the pro-Hamas protestors who have taken over college campuses across the country over the last few weeks, saying they deserve to be hated and to be mocked. 

Cotton made his comments during a Sunday interview on ABC News’ “This Week” with Jonathan Karl when asked about the recent encampments at numerous universities. 

Cotton slammed President Biden for waiting too long to condemn what was happening on the campuses. 

“It was two weeks after these pro-Hamas fanatics had taken over a lot of campuses, and set up these little Gazas,” he said. “He didn’t specifically speak to what they’re saying and what they’re doing. They’re chanting final solution. They’re telling Jews to go back to where they came from. They’re spray-painting buildings with vile, antisemitic hate.” 

“He said, well, we shouldn’t have antisemitism or hate speech in the abstract or Islamophobia,” he continued. “Where are the encampments, Jon, on campuses spreading Islamophobia? Why is Joe Biden so equivocal? Why does he have to draw moral equivalence between thousands of students who are setting up these little Gazas all across America.” 

Karl then tried to argue that Cotton was mocking the situation happening inside Gaza, to which Cotton responded by saying everything that was happening was Hamas’ fault for their attack on Israel last October when they deliberately killed more than 1,200 civilians.  

“Yet Joe Biden, for seven months, has leaned on Israel, has pressured Benjamin Netanyahu, has told him to stand down when they get attacked by Iran, has said they can’t go into the last holdout where Hamas has its final terrorist battalions,” Cotton continued. “But, no, these students on campuses, they deserved our contempt. They also deserved our mockery. I mean, they’re out there in their N95 masks in open air, with their — with their gluten allergies, demanding that Uber Eats gets delivered to them.” 

“They should not have been allowed to fester on campus for two weeks when these liberal administrators and liberal politicians refused to send in the police to clear them out the very first day they set up their tents,” he added. 

Cotton also called out Biden for not deporting foreigners who have been contributing to the situation on college campuses. 

“You can protest all you want. If you want to make a fool of yourself and support a terrorist group, you can do that,” he said. “Now, if you’re a foreigner, you can’t. And where’s Joe Biden’s administration demanding that universities turn over the names of any foreign students here on a visa, revoking those visas and deporting them? That’s something that Joe Biden can do today.” 

Cotton explained that the root of the anti-Semitic protesters was the hatred that they have towards the United States.
