LAWRENCE JONES (CO-HOST): To your point, Ainsley, also, it's not just the students. You got the professors that are out there with the students as well. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): They should be fired. 


BRIAN KILMEADE: Should be fired. 

LAWRENCE JONES: You had in Columbia, the professors created a wall around the students. If I'm the president of a university, you got — you already have to go to online learning. Now you got professors that aren't teaching class. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): They are teaching activism instead of how to be scholars. 

BRIAN KILMEADE: I'll tell you what, I watched Fareed Zakaria's show, they had Bruce Bobbins on — I'll show you a — who is one of the senior professors over there for 27 years, and he is actually all for this. You know exactly why these students think this. He's like, I'm spending a lot of time with the encampments; basically Israel is not a democracy because they're outnumbered by Arabs in that area and if it's a really representative democracy they would be a minority. He's, basically, he looks at Israel the way we look at Assad in Syria. And if you think about this — this is a so-called intellectual that you pay $75,000 a year to get people like that — and he's backing up the students and he is saying there is no antisemitic behavior there. Well, we've talked to those students. They are getting the barbs when they walk to class, to the point where the president said it's not safe for Jews to be on campus, so what's this guy talking about?
