After taking aim at Ivy League administrators, Barstool Sports president and founder Dave Portnoy is now turning to anti-Israel agitators.

"I wouldn't hire any of these activists," Portnoy said Friday on "Varney & Co." "I've been doing Barstool for 20 years, and these protests I've been through, Occupy Wall Street, if you remember, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, now Israel… you have serial protesters who, in a lot of these cases on college campuses, don't even care about the cause.

"But these people, I'd like to see them go to some of the countries that they think are so great, cause issues, break into buildings and then demand food… They'd cut their tongues out."

I understand that a lot of these protests are peaceful. I can even understand the anger that facilitates rioting as a TEMPORARY knee jerk reaction. But I feel like we (general) are using that as an excuse to minimize how extreme these protests have gotten and the people exploiting multiple oppressed groups are getting a pass. It did not help Black people and it's not going to help Jews or Palestinians.

There is a group of people jumping from cause to cause looking for a reason to fight and we (general) are tolerating it.

I wouldn’t hire any of them either.
CEO of Hims and Hers said he and other executives were eager to hire anti-Israel student protesters who’ve faced disciplinary actions from their universities.

Don't hire ANYONE who supports the liars who have determined their version of reality.

These are the same people who went against freedom in the fifties and sixties.

Probably not since they'd have to be Boomers and Gen X. Actually even the oldest Gen X were children in the sixties. As for Portnoy Idk exactly who he is. But if he doesn't want to hire the activists that's his business. If the activists are targeting Jews that have nothing to do with Israel I don't blame him. If they are committing acts of vandalism I don't blame him. That's no way to hold a protest. If he doesn't want to hire a peaceful activist then he could be hurting himself. These people might have a strong sense of justice and morality. The problem is the violent activists hurt the cause.

I’m so sick of it all, I’m just anti-protesters…


I don’t care what the protest is about, who you’re protesting for, what you’re mad at…


Either become a lobbiest or I don’t want to hear about it.

I'm not even sure what he means, lol. Sounds a bit like virtue signaling. Is he keeping a list?
