College Protests Have Dems Scared

( –  In a massive new problem for the left, the Democratic Party’s leadership in Washington is said to be panicking over fears that the intensification of demonstrations on college campuses nationwide favoring the Hamas terrorist group will result in more Americans voting for the GOP.

These protests are believed to be catalyzing a shift among the American electorate, potentially favoring Republican candidates, The Daily Wire writes in a report.

“The longer they continue, and the worse that they get, the worse it’s going to be for the election overall,” an unnamed House Democrat told pro-left news site Axios.

“[The protests are] bringing out [the public’s] most conservative side,” the leftist politician added.

The source spoke ahead of a closed-door caucus meeting of House Democrats on Tuesday, admitting that “many people were talking about” the chaos at campuses.

“Many people are super frustrated and concerned,” the Democrat said.

The report notes that during the private meeting among House Democrats, the prevailing atmosphere was one of significant worry.

Another anonymous Democrat voiced worries that the demonstrations could inadvertently benefit Israel’s conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“We need to remember that a vote for Trump or sitting out this election or voting third party is a vote for Netanyahu,” the source said.

In contrast, Rep. Annie Kuster (D-NH) articulated the complexity of the situation for Democrats.

“It’s complicated enough for us with the range of opinions and height of emotions we have, without weighing in on what [colleges] should be doing,” she said.

Amid these events, President Joe Biden had not publicly addressed the violence and unrest at college campuses over the past week before condemning it in remarks on Thursday.

House Speaker Mike Johnson had criticized Biden’s silence.

“What’s happening on college campuses right now is wrong. It is un-American. It is not who we are. The president seems unable or unwilling to do this,” he said.

Biden’s previous comments on the issue were on April 22, when he attempted to balance the condemnation of the protests with an acknowledgment of the complexities surrounding the Palestinian Arab situation in the Gaza strip.

Former President Donald Trump, however, has been vocally critical of the protests.

“I say remove the encampments immediately, vanquish the radicals and take back our campuses for all of the normal students who want a safe place from which to learn,” he said on Wednesday.
