Georgetown University students are “devastated” over the death of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. They “send their condolences” to the Iranian people and believe the U.S. Government made the decision to take him out because of “white supremacy” and “racism.”
On the Georgetown campus in Washington, D.C., Campus Reform’s Eduardo Neret asked students for their thoughts on the death of the Iranian General. Their responses revealed that many students at Georgetown disagree with President Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani and believe America should apologize for it.
As The Daily Citizen noted in a previous article, “Soleimani was the leader of the Iranian Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), that operates covertly in foreign countries and promotes terror worldwide. The U.S. believes Soleimani was responsible for the death of 603 U.S. service members killed during the Iraq War.”
The decision to kill Soleimani was made after he ordered an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq and then began plotting additional attacks on Americans. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in an interview on Fox News that the decision to take Soleimani out “saved American lives.”
Rather than seeing General Soleimani as an enemy combatant and a terrorist, many of the students at Georgetown University took the side of the Iranian leadership and saw him as a hero. Here are some of their responses to the death of the Iranian general:
“I think that the United States has a history of violence against non-white people and that violence has manifested in various ways. The United States is a white supremacist state and does operate in the interest of white supremacy most of the time.”
“It was a little bit devastating for me. To be honest with you, to be very frank, like, my family was devastated.”
“I was shocked and immediately disgusted that Trump had done that.”
“It was such a big official that it meant a lot to a lot of people so to kill someone like that, so brutally, all of a sudden, obviously it’s something that hurts.”
“I think no matter what you do, no matter all the crimes you commit, you still deserve the right to a trial and I don’t think just applies to Americans.”
“Everyone was talking about how Trump made that decision to distract from his impeachment.”
In the U.S. News rankings of best colleges, Georgetown University ranks number 24 on the list. It’s deeply concerning that some of the, allegedly, most well-educated students in the country blame the United States for killing one of the worst terrorists in the world after he ordered an attack on our embassy.
It seems relentless indoctrination from liberal college professors has made its mark.
