**Yemeni CUNY Grad’s Disturbing Graduation Speech Sparks Outrage**
At this year’s City University of New York (CUNY) graduation ceremony, an unsettling speech from graduate Fatima Mohammed took aim at supposed “oppressive institutions” and “white supremacy,” resulting in a fiery debate over America’s core values.
Raised in the immigrant neighborhood of Queens, Mohammed, a native of Yemen, expressed scorn for her adopted country and culture. In her speech, she railed against American law enforcement and white privilege, earning the enthusiastic approval of many in the audience.
Mohammed’s incendiary comments, sounding much like the rhetoric of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who many conservatives view as a privileged immigrant with a penchant for attacking America, led to intense online backlash. YouTube temporarily removed the speech, only to repost it after an outcry from radical leftist groups such as CAIR.
**Celebrating a Dialogue of Division at CUNY**
In her speech, Mohammed referred to her “rich soil” Yemeni roots and praised CUNY School of Law for its critical approach towards American law as a tool of white supremacy. Astonishingly, her graduation speech called for what she believes to be a much-needed revolution against so-called “oppressive” institutions in the United States, such as the military, police, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the prison system.
The fact that such unsettling, intolerant views were received with enthusiastic applause and cheers by many in attendance only provides an insight into how today’s campus discourse fosters radical beliefs. It was discouraging to realize the lack of speakers promoting traditional American values, ideals that have provided unparalleled prosperity and opportunities for millions throughout history.
Moreover, the YouTube removal-and-reinstatement saga serves as a crucial reminder of how radical leftist groups wield their influence in shaping online discourse. This act of censorship, followed by pressure from extremism-apologists, resulted in the bizarre spotlighting of a speech that seeks to undo the very values that attracted countless individuals, like Mohammed’s own family, to seek a better life in America.
**The Gateway Pundit Reveals Unsettling Shift In Dispute**
As conservative thought leaders, let’s examine the implications of allowing anti-American voices like Fatima Mohammed to dominate the conversation on our institutions. It is our duty to ensure that our society remains grounded in the principles that have made us the great nation we are today while fostering open debate and challenge. The shift towards a narrative that promotes division must be met with bold ideas and grounded perspectives, lest we risk losing our cherished values to an empty, short-sighted clamor in support of destructive ideologies
