Princeton professor of religion and African-American Studies Eddie Glaude was up to his usual antics on MSNBC yesterday.
First, Glaude lauded the fact that Kyle Kashuv — the Parkland, Florida school shooting survivor whose acceptance to Harvard was recently withdrawn after racist comments from his teenage years were made public — was denied the Ivy League, and tied his past remarks to President Trump’s “hateful rhetoric.”
“I think it’s important that it sends a message to the broader public, that this sort of language, these sorts of beliefs and commitments cannot be sanctioned in the public domain whatsoever because we are so awash in this hatred now,” he said.
Ironically, Kashuv’s comments were never intended to be part of the “public domain.”
According to The Daily Caller, a bit later Glaude referred to President Trump’s tweet about deporting “millions of illegal aliens” as a “terrorist act.”
Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people…….

He is terrorizing families in communities who think they’re going to be snatched away from their kids, who have to walk around daily wondering whether an [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] agent will show up at work and snatch them, and then they won’t have their family. …
He is announcing his campaign, instead of calling people rapists, he is announcing his campaign by enacting terror on families who are often really close and productive members of communities around this country. It’s horrifying.
Glaude added: “What we need to do is to understand what is really motivating this … is cruelty. It’s cruelty.”
