On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra spoke with a group of pro-Hamas supporters who stormed into the lobby of the New York Fashion Institute and set up a camp similar to the one at Columbia. The group is demanding the institute cut all ties with Israel, but it seems that many of the kids outside really didn't have a clue what was going on.

Ezra spoke his mind on the intellectual laziness of the responses of many students:

What's different about these protesters is they don't have much to say. Slogans that are typically written by the organizers are all they have. They delegate their thinking to a few spin doctors. I find that not only civically irresponsible, but I think it gives the game away. These are just thrill hunters. These are just people moving with the pack, looking for a sense of purpose and community and finding it in this snake oil being served up by woke extremists on the left and in some cases, foreign-funded agitators.

The protests blocked many students and professors from being able to go to class at the University which one student told Ezra is "very expensive." One professor said:

Listen, I'm all about free speech. But this is something else, you're taking over an institution, and you're preventing people from working, and it's obviously it's not your property, so it's trespassing.
