On Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said that companies should not "blacklist" Harvard college students who are members of organizations that co-signed an anti-Israel letter in the wake of the Hamas terror attack on the country.
In a post on X, Ramaswamy said, "The Harvard student groups who co-signed the anti-Israel letter are simple fools." He continued, "But it’s not productive for companies to blacklist kids for being members of student groups that make dumb political statements on campus."
"Colleges are spaces for students to experiment with ideas & sometimes kids join clubs that endorse boneheadedly wrong ideas," Ramaswamy added. "I've been as vocal as anyone in criticizing left-wing cancel culture (see my first book “Woke, Inc.”), but it’s bad no matter who practices it."
