Having never gone to college, I can say that while I don’t know the exact experience and what people go through, I can tell you that I have a great deal of respect for Harvard grads of all types.

If you want the best education, you are going to get the best education, but be prepared to put the work in. Graduating from there isn’t like going to some other colleges where you might as well just be graduating from the 16th grade.

People put a hell of a lot of money into their time there which begs the question…should your diploma be contingent on your political affiliation? I thought that was one of those First Amendment things…

Harvard University students are circulating a petition calling for revoking degrees from Trump supporters and aides who attended the elite Ivy League institution following the Capitol riots in DC.

According to the report from Fox Business, a copy of the petition states that supporters of President Trump were involved in spreading the “disinformation and mistrust” that led to last week’s deadly riot at the United States Capitol Building.

The petition is entitled, “Revoke their Degrees,” and was reportedly circulated by four students on campus who attend Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
The petition calls on the university to be “Prepared to take a stand for representative democracy and against violent white supremacy,” by specifically revoking degrees of three Harvard graduates who are supporters of the president: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).

The petition described all of these as “violent actors” who need to be held accountable for their alleged actions. The report states that a spokesman for Harvard declined to comment other than to say the university is aware of the petition. McEnany, Cruz and Crenshaw had no immediate comment.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said U.S. officials should place people who were inside the Capitol building on the federal “no fly” list.

“We cannot allow these same insurrectionists to get on a plane and cause more violence and more damage,” Schumer said at a news briefing. He discussed the matter with FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin of the Washington office told a news conference on Tuesday that the Justice Department has identified more than 170 potential suspects in the Capitol violence to date and charged more than 70.

Asked about the possibility of adding suspects to the no-fly list, Steven M. D’Antuono, an FBI official who heads the Washington Field Office, said it is “something that we are actively looking at.”
