A high-ranking official with the New York Police Department said protesters had weapons including knives and hammers as well as pamphlets with “Death to America!” written on them.

Michael Kemper, a NYPD’s chief of transit, posted photos Friday of what police confiscated from the protesters.

“For those romanticizing the protests occurring on college campuses, ‘Death to America!’ is one sentiment that runs counter to what we believe in, what we stand for, and what many have fought for on behalf of this country,” Kemper stated on X. “And if you think the words written on this piece of paper are disturbing … you should hear the vile, disgusting, hateful, & threatening words coming out of the mouths of far too many of these so called ‘peaceful protestors.’”

Kemper posted a video of a pamphlet that stated, “Death to Israeli Real Estate” and “Death to America!” The pamphlet also stated, “DISRUPT/RECLAIM/DESTROY Zionist business interests everywhere!”

NYPD Deputy Commissioner Kaz Daughtry posted on X photos of items he said the police confiscated from protesters who took over Hamilton Hall at Columbia University. The photo showed gas masks, ear plugs, helmets, goggles, tape, hammers, knives, ropes, and a book on terrorism. The book is by Charles Townshend, Professor of International History at Keele University in England. It was published in 2011 and is 161 pages.

“These are not the tools of students protesting, these are the tools of agitators, of people who were working on something nefarious,” Daughtry said on X. “Thankfully, your NYPD was able to prevent whatever they were planning and stop them before they could do it.”

Kemper asked who was organizing the protests.

“However, as we have been stating for the past 2 weeks, there is an underlying radical indoctrination of some of these students. Vulnerable and young people being influenced by professional agitators. Who is funding and leading this movement?” Kemper asked on X.

Kemper also posted a letter from The New School requesting the NYPD’s assistance in removing protesters from their campus on Friday.

“The actions and continuing escalation of these individuals are a substantial disruption of the educational environment and regular operations of the university,” the letter stated.

The New School is a university in New York City. It closed all academic building on Friday and classes were moved to online. The college said classes on campus would resume Saturday. Fox News reported that 56 protesters were arrested at The New School and New York University.

  1. So Sad, Leftist, Democrat, Socialist, Communist law enforcement and politicians are so ill informed and Marxist indoctrinated with anti-Representative Democracy propaganda by universities professors and educators who have perverted the calling of the American experiment of a righteous self governance. And the mush for brains republicans who embraced to vomit drank the koolaide.

  2. You mean they’re just “mostly peaceful”, completely organic protestors concerned about people from a location 90% couldn’t find on a map.

    Who just happen, by sheer coincidence, to be carrying weapons, gas masks, and terrorist propaganda.

    Damn. The coincidences just add up and up.

  3. Huh, I’m pretty sure ol’ Joe said on multiple occasions that white supremacists are the biggest threat to our national security.
    Is he sure about that? These terrorists loving left wing cry-baby nut jobs seem way more dangerous to me. I’m sure none of these types are crossing our border though…good Lord.

    • If you take a close look at those mutations protesting you’ll notice most are white.

      There is nothing more dangerous to America than progressives, the ultimate “white supremacists”.

      • Most likely the leftists college education is giving extra credit for practical exercises they teach in classes.

  4. And some are still trying to gaslight people into believing that these “protests” are definitely not antisemitic in nature…

  5. On line college- no loans- one professor teaching thousands of students- easy to observe- no endowments aka foreign money- no tenure- access to all- no admission shenanigans. You only need in house for a few subjects like medicine. No big campuses costing billions. Brick and mortar colleges are mainly for prestige- but a Harvard degree is BS these days. And if you want free college it won’t cost much.

  6. From the peaceful protests of the summer of 2020 , it’s the same folks in 2024 as paid agitators . Funding from the same sources . The BLM protestors from 2020 were bused around in new Prevost buses to protest around the country, staying in nice hotels and moved around under the cover of darkness . Wearing new Nike gear . I am clearly seeing a common thread. These BLM agitators are rebranded and with new costumes and back at it on college campuses in 2024 . While the media remains both complicit and silent?

    God please save this country !
