With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Leaders of two student organizations at Syracuse University are pushing for the college to rescind politician and attorney Rudy Giuliani’s honorary doctorate from SU College of Law.
Mazzy Kaila, executive president of Syracuse University’s Student Bar Association, and David Bruen, president of the Student Association, are heading the initiative to revoke Giuliani’s degree, citing his past policies as mayor of New York City and his campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
“Mr. Giuliani implemented harmful policies as Mayor and has undermined our elections as a lawyer. Syracuse University should not continue to honor him with a degree of law,” Bruen told The College Fix in an email Nov. 9.
The undertaking began after Bruen discovered the degree as he examined a list of past SU commencement speakers before Gov. Kathy Hochul’s recent visit to the university.
The Student Association is working on a resolution to call for Giuliani’s degree to be rescinded, Bruen said in the email.
The college did not respond to inquiries from The College Fix for comment on whether they would investigate the matter or what the process would look like.
Giuliani received his honorary doctorate from SU’s College of Law in 1989 after his term as attorney for the Southern District of New York.
The university invited Giuliani back as commencement speaker in 2002, where he was met with student protests against policing practices implemented during his term as mayor of New York City following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Giuliani again faced backlash more recently over his participation in a campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 election, prompting the New York state appellate court to suspend his law license.Two other universities also responded to the controversy by revoking honorary degrees previously awarded to Giuliani.Middlebury College rescinded a degree granted to Giuliani in 2005 shortly after the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.President Lauri Patton wrote on the school’s Facebook page that Giuliani contributed to “fomenting the violent uprising against our nation’s Capitol building on January 6, 2021—an insurrection against democracy itself.”In August, Drexel University rescinded a 2009 Doctor of Law degree due to Giuliani’s “repeated unfounded claims of widespread […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
