A foreign-born ingrate recently addressed a graduation audience with a hateful diatribe against America. This time it wasn’t Ilhan Omar.
Fatima Mousa Mohammed, the valedictorian of the Class of 2023 at the City University of New York’s (CUNY) law school, used her speech to attack the law as a tool of “white supremacy,” and to attack Israel and the police.
Mohammed praised CUNY for supposedly recognizing that “the law is a manifestation of white supremacy that continues to oppress and suppress people in this nation and around the world.” The crowd then applauded.
She described American society as “an empire with a ravenous appetite for destruction and violence,” but hit her biggest applause line in praising CUNY for defending the right to oppose “Israeli settler colonialism.”
This nasty harridan is but one more execrable by-product of a corrupt educational system. Never mind the fact that capitalism is what funded her education. She is a graduate of CUNY, the City University of New York, but it is more suitably described as the Communist University of New York.
How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless, heavily tax-subsidized law-school graduate.
That would be Fatima Mousa Mohammed of Queens, who took the occasion of her graduation from the City University of New York School of Law to spray a little poison on the people who paid for her degree.
In sum: Palestine is persecuted; Israel is evil; the New York Police Department is “fascist” — her word — and the only acceptable course of action is “revolution.”
Mohammed further condemned those supporting “systems of oppression created to feed an empire with a ravenous appetite for destruction and violence — institutions created to intimidate, bully and censor and stifle the voices of those who resist.”
The NY Post Editorial Board notes how this repulsive speech is just one more in a series of idiotic actions.
New York’s once-prestigious City University continues its descent into hard-left madness. Can Gov. Kathy Hochul be bothered to put on the brakes?
The latest sign, of course, is Fatima Mousa Mohammed’s vile speech at the CUNY Law graduation.
Administrators initially cut the remarks from online video of the commencement, and it’s easy to see why.
The student speaker (chosen by fellow students) proclaimed the NYPD “fascist” andinsisted “the law is a manifestation of white supremacy,”just one of many systems “created to feed an empire with a ravenous appetite for destruction and violence.”
Very much of a piece with last year’s speaker Nerdeen Kiswani, a virulent Jew-hater who once told a crowd “I hope that a pop-pop is the last noise that some Zionists hear in their lifetime.”
All fitting nicely in a system that hired machete-wielding Hunter College adjunct Shellyne Rodriguez.
And Michael Isaacson, a John Jay prof who tweeted about teaching “future dead cops.”
And Baruch College adjunct/literal Hezbollah operative Alexei Saab.
It is reminiscent of the Ilhan Omar’s description of 9-11 (“some people did something”).
One cannot but notice a similarity among many of the haters. Mohammed, like Omar, is a foreign-born hater of America. She hails from Yemen, a bastion of freedom in the Middle East. It is a war-torn country rife with crime. Her native country is a sh*thole yet there is not a drop of gratitude for this one. She would be a wonderful fit for the Squad or The View.
A veteran professor of CUNY described her caustic outburst as a “call for an American insurrection.”
A veteran CUNY law professor has blamed the “blatant call for American insurrection” in this year’s graduate commencement speech on the school being run by a bunch of “far left, Marxist lunatics.”
Professor Jeffrey Lax, a full-time CUNY professor for 20 years, told Fox News that Fatima Mousa Mohammed’s anti-Israel call for revolution was “the most disturbing commencement speech I have ever heard in my entire life.”
But “the problem is not her,” he insisted of the radical Queens grad who called the NYPD “fascist” and accused Israel of indiscriminately murdering Palestinians.
“Students are allowed to be idiots — you’re supposed to be an idiot when you’re a student,” he said.
“The problem is that you have faculty condoning, OK’ing and pushing this forward,” he said of staff who applauded from the stage.
This insane asylum masquerading as a university is funded by NY taxpayers- capitalism funding its own gallows.
The imbecile mayor of New York was proud of this
I was proud to offer a different message at this year’s CUNY law commencement ceremony — one that celebrates the progress of our city and country, and one that honors those who fight to keep us safe and protect our freedoms, like my uncle Joe, who died at age 19 in Vietnam while… https://t.co/vGRKntgH0G

Byron York had a wry take
She’ll be a U.S. District Court judge before you can turn around. https://t.co/uR2MQ1I2oZ

I’d force her to do a five-year internship in Yemen where she could do pro bono work furthering women’s rights.
In Yemen, a country ranked last in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap index for 13 consecutive years, women have been suffering from deeply entrenched gender inequality rooted in a patriarchal society with rigid gender roles. While the conflict in Yemen has had a horrific impact on all civilians generally, women and girls have been disproportionately affected. Negative gender stereotypes and patriarchal attitudes, a discriminatory legal system, and economic inequality have compounded women’s vulnerability to violence.
Sort of a Brittney Griner scholarship. I would terminate every one of her professors.
Then demolish the school.
