Conservative Perspective on Ilhan Omar’s Daughter’s Suspension over Protests Against Israel


In recent news, Barnard College has been thrust into the spotlight due to the suspension of Isra Hirsi, daughter of controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. The reason for her suspension? Protesting against Israel. This has sparked a heated debate, with liberals defending Hirsi's right to protest and conservatives denouncing her actions as unacceptable. As a conservative, it's clear where I stand on this issue.

First and foremost, it's important to acknowledge that the right to protest is a fundamental part of our democracy. However, there is a fine line between peaceful protest and disruptive behavior. Hirsi's actions crossed that line when she and other student activists stormed an event featuring a pro-Israel speaker. Such actions do not promote productive discourse, but instead incite division and chaos. As conservatives, we believe in the freedom of speech, but we also believe in respecting the rights of others to express their opinions without fear of being silenced.

Furthermore, Hirsi's suspension is not solely about her protesting against Israel, but rather her disregard for the rules and regulations of the college. As reported, the event she and her fellow protesters disrupted was approved and sponsored by the school's administration. This means that Hirsi not only disrespected the speaker, but also the school and its policies. It is unacceptable for a student to behave in such a manner and expect to face no consequences.

Many have argued that Hirsi's suspension is an attack on free speech and a reflection of the school's lack of support for marginalized communities. However, this is simply not the case. As a conservative, I support the right to speak out against injustices, but I also believe in accountability for one's actions. Hirsi had every right to express her opinions, but she also had a responsibility to do so in a respectful and lawful manner. Her suspension is a result of her failure to fulfill that responsibility, not a suppression of her voice.

Moreover, it's important to recognize the underlying implications of Hirsi's actions. By protesting against Israel, she is not only attacking the country, but also its people and their right to self-determination. As conservatives, we stand for the protection of our allies and their sovereignty. To protest against a country and its policies is one thing, but to disrupt an event that celebrates its culture and traditions is disrespectful and counterproductive.

As a conservative, I understand the importance of standing up for one's beliefs. However, there are appropriate ways to do so without causing chaos and disrespecting others. Hirsi's suspension serves as a lesson to all students that there are consequences for disregarding rules and regulations, regardless of one's political beliefs. It also highlights the need for civil and respectful discourse, rather than disruptive and divisive behavior.

In conclusion, the suspension of Isra Hirsi from Barnard College is not an attack on free speech or marginalized communities, but a reflection of her failure to uphold the standards and values of the school. As conservatives, we believe in accountability, respect, and the protection of our allies. Hirsi's actions, while well-intentioned, were unacceptable and her suspension is a just consequence. It's time for students to realize that their actions have consequences and that true change comes through civil and productive dialogue, not through chaos and disruption.

  2. The Moslin sect has been living in the mid-east beside the Israelis. When the Hamas attacked the Israeli’sand the war began, Hamas didn’t seem to care that the two sects were intermixed in the community. What did they think would happen? The entire Hamas group doesn’t care about anyone, and apparently Iran doesn’t either.
    Here in America we need to stop this hatred that is becoming common place toward our fellow Americans. The Actions of these extremists must be stopped and they need to be villified. The words “they don’t know what they do” because of there age is overdone. We have been too soft.
    If Illhan’s daugher is unhappy here send her to Iran and her mother too.

  3. deport non American protestors chanting death to America and charge American protectors who chanted Death to America for treason

  4. If all involved were suspended, I believe it is the correct action, but if she was the only one suspended that take us to another point. Was she suspended because of who she is related to, just for the publicity? If that is the case, then its wrong. Also if she gets let off, because of who she is related to, that is even more wrong.

  5. This shows how far backward citizens of USA have gone. If she is not disciplined legally it also shows a bias that we won’t overcome. She hates but expects us to not hate her. Sad deal all around.

  6. She just follows the example her mother sets. It’s sad that we have people in congress that hate our country and the constitution and having those same values instilled in their children.

  7. Let’s find any way to rid ourselves of these anti-American PARASITES !! Including their kids, parents and pet hamsters!!
