Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing told British TV host Piers Morgan Tuesday that universities have become “victims of their own rhetoric” as anti-Semitism inflames college campuses in the aftermath of Hamas’ attack on Israel.

Boreing spoke with Morgan about anti-Semitism spreading at universities after shredding Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef after Youssef attacked Boreing’s colleague Ben Shapiro. Following Boreing’s back and forth with Morgan and Youssef on the Israel-Hamas war, Morgan asked Boreing about the outbreak of hateful rhetoric targeted at Jews on college campuses. 

“I think that the universities are in many ways victims of their own rhetoric. And one of the dangerous things to do in life is to say things out loud because pretty soon you’ll have to defend them and soon after that, you’ll start to believe them,” Boreing said. 

“And Harvard has been preaching this sort of intersectional hierarchy now for at least a decade and maybe more, the problem with the intersectional hierarchy is that someone has to be on the bottom in the, in the sort of name of equality or fostering some sort of better sense of equality,” he continued.  

Boreing added that universities like Harvard have “created a situation” where people who have historically been in power are now at the bottom of the totem pole and are being “dehumanized” by the new woke agenda. The Daily Wire co-founder noted how the leftist ideology so prevalent on college campuses seeks to protect minorities but looks down upon the Jews. 

“Of course, one of the smallest minorities in the world is the Jews,” Boreing added. “And unfortunately, in every other way, they seem to fit more in positions of power. They tend to excel academically, they tend to excel in business. They’re disproportionately represented in media, in education, in science, you know, in traditionally white collar and governmental type roles.” 

“And so the intersectional hierarchy being preached by these schools has left them in a position where, you know, the most, probably hard done by minority of the 20th and 21st century somehow has been dehumanized by them and they don’t know how to get out of the way of their own bad thinking.”

Morgan then played a clip of a professor at Cornell University celebrating Hamas’ brutal terror attack against Israelis and saying it was “exhilarating and energizing.”

“If what that professor had said instead is that gender and biological sex are inextricably linked, he’d be out on the streets by now and never work again,” Boreing commented. “Instead, he says that it’s exhilarating to watch children murdered in their homes because of some sort of bizarre academic theory about power structures.” 

Boreing then went back to dissecting the foolishness of modern leftist thought at universities. 

“Here’s the thing, strength does not necessarily connote virtue, but strength also does not necessarily connote a lack of virtue. Weakness does not confer upon a person virtue any more than weakness, confers upon a person a lack of virtue.”

“There are wonderful Jews in the world and there are terrible Jews in the world,” Boreing added. “There are wonderful Muslims in the world and there are terrible Muslims in the world. There are wonderful people in positions of strength. I think the West has done a relatively extraordinary job compared to other societies throughout human history. And there are terrible people in positions of power.” 

Boreing warned that the outcome of pursuing woke ideology would lead to regimes built upon collectivism as seen in countries like communist China. 

“We need only look at the ruling regime in China among others to know that what happens when you engage in this collectivism is you forget about the individual,” he said.
