Final week, Portnoy vowed to not rent graduates from any graduates of Harvard, MIT, or Penn after their presidents testified in front of the House Education Committee.
On Monday, Portnoy doubled down on the pledge.
Stuart Varney: Okay, how about anti-semitism on school campuses? You’ll not rent anybody from Harvard, UPenn, or MIT till the college’s dean steps down. Has anybody from these colleges utilized to work with you?
Dave Portnoy: Yeah, nicely, after I. To begin with, we have already got Harvard grads, so that they’re grandfathered in. However within the Penn dean, President McGill, she stepped down. Yeah, lots of people reached out, however I feel it’s not solely me. I feel numerous leaders need to do it. It was disgusting. What these deans and presidents did beneath oath is mindless to me. I don’t know the way. In the event you can’t condemn genocide, I don’t care whether or not we’re speaking Jews, Muslims, any group of individuals, then you definately don’t need to be able of energy. You bought to get out.
Varney: What about free speech? Does that come into this?

That’s what they’re saying you are able to do on this nation. There’s a distinction between free speech and hate speech. And if you’re endangering individuals and inflicting hurt, I feel you bought to place a cease to it. It’s referred to as frequent sense.
Final week , Portnoy shared his preliminary ideas on social media, “This video has made me so irate I would like to verify as many individuals see it as potential.”
“The Deans of three supposedly prestigious Universities in the USA someway refusing to sentence college students calling for the Genocide of Jews on campus. AKA — the homicide of all Jews.”
“Newsflash that’s calling for the homicide of myself, my mother and father and my whole household. And these ‘leaders’ refuse to sentence this as hate speech on their campuses? … That is calling for the MURDER OF ALL JEWS in all places and these absolute coward faculty directors refuse to sentence it.”
He continued, “Even worse, they someway solely say it violates faculty coverage if these antisemitic college students transfer from chanting kill all of the Jews to truly making an attempt to homicide all of the jews on campus. Effectively good to know that precise homicide continues to be towards the college handbook on the Ivy Leagues.”
“You possibly can’t even whisper one thing dangerous about different teams with out it changing into a global incident however with Jews apparently saying you wish to kill all of them is truthful recreation.”
“Not that this may make an enormous distinction however shifting ahead I can’t rent any pupil who graduates from any of those colleges till these Deans step down.”
“Extra companies ought to observe this lead. That is unacceptable on each single stage. I don’t care should you’re Jewish or not both. If you realize a Jew or simply have a level of primary human decency calling for the homicide of a complete group of individuals ought to outrage you.”
