The CEO of Barstool Sports, Dave Portnoy, has announced that he will not hire any applicants who went to college at Harvard, MIT, or Penn.
The announcement stems from the congressional testimony from the schools’ presidents after they said that their free speech guidelines allow students to participate in anti-Semitic demonstrations on the campuses.
“This video has made me so irate I need to make sure as many people see it as possible,” the 46-year-old wrote on Instagram.
“The Deans of three supposedly prestigious Universities in the United States somehow refusing to condemn students calling for the Genocide of Jews on campus. AKA – the murder of all Jews. Newsflash that is calling for the murder of myself, my parents and my entire family. And these ‘leaders’ refuse to condemn this as hate speech on their campuses?
“This isn’t debating whether there should be a cease fire or discussing the future of Israel and Palestine in the Middle East. This is calling for the MURDER OF ALL JEWS everywhere and these absolute coward school administrators refuse to condemn it,” he concluded.
Additionally, Portnoy claimed that Jewish students are the only minority group that other students could openly intimidate and chant that they want to murder and not get kicked out immediately, or better yet “thrown in jail.”
“At this rate we’re one step away from the Ivy Leagues offering courses on how 9/11 was actually the Jews (sic) fault,” the Michigan alumnus wrote.
“Not that this will make a huge difference but moving forward I will not hire any student who graduates from any of these schools until these Deans step down,” Portnoy wrote, noting he would not make exceptions for Jewish applicants from the institutions.
At Harvard, over 30 student groups signed a letter blaming Israel for the Hamas terrorist attacks on October 7th, causing donors to pull their support from the school.
“This is unacceptable on every single level,” Portnoy wrote. “I don’t care if you’re Jewish or not either. If you know a Jew (sic) or just have a degree of basic human decency calling for the murder of an entire group of people should outrage you.”
