Protest whiplash

Mainstream Democrats, elite universities and big corporations have gotten behind a slew of progressive social-justice movements over the past several years.

  • But pro-Palestinian protests appear to be testing the limits of those big institutional alliances.

🪧 Driving the news: "There's the right to protest, but not the right to cause chaos," President Biden said from the White House today.

  • "Vandalism, trespassing, breaking windows, shutting down campuses, forcing the cancellation of classes and graduation, none of this is a peaceful protest," he said.
  • Several congressional Democrats told Axios' Andrew Solender and Stephen Neukam they're afraid ongoing protests will hurt their party in November.

📣 Between the lines: Corporate America is also lowering its tolerance for activism that is considered too aggressive or disruptive for the workplace, Axios' Eleanor Hawkins writes.

  • About 50 Google employees were fired last month for participating in pro-Palestinian protests that violated the workplace code of conduct.
  • "What we're seeing is the end of a cycle, which started with the employee walkouts of the Trump era, peaked after the summer of 2020 and seems to have ground to a halt after Oct. 7," said Steve Hirsch, CEO of strategic communications firm Hirsch Leatherwood.

By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

Biden says ‘order must prevail’ during campus protests over the war in Gaza

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Thursday rejected calls from student protesters to change his approach to the war in Gaza while insisting that “order must prevail” as college campuses across the country face a wave of violence, outrage and fear.

Biden's campus cloud

For two weeks, President Biden kept his distance from the pro-Palestinian protests roiling college campuses, devoting far more time to Israel-Hamas hostage negotiations than the unrest unfurling at home.

  • By yesterday — when Biden delivered unplanned remarks defending students' right to protest but condemning campus violence — it was clear that strategy had become unsustainable, Axios' Zachary Basu and Hans Nichols write.

Why it matters: The next phase of Biden's dueling foreign policy and domestic crises may prove even more difficult.

  • In Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed — "with or without" a hostage deal — to forge ahead with a ground invasion of Rafah, where more than 1 million Palestinians are sheltering.
  • In the U.S., universities are trying to balance protesters' speech rights, while scrambling to avoid high-profile disruptions to graduation ceremonies — including at Morehouse College in Atlanta, where Biden is scheduled to deliver the commencement address.

Biden tried to thread that needle in his remarks at the White House yesterday.

  • "We are not an authoritarian nation where we silence people or squash dissent," he said. "Peaceful protest is in the best tradition of how Americans respond to consequential issues. But neither are we a lawless country."

🖼️ The big picture: Wherever Biden turns, Gaza-related backlash seems to follow.

  • Protesters — many chanting "Genocide Joe" over his support for Israel — routinely heckle Biden during his public appearances.
  • House Republicans, who have spent the past year plagued by extreme dysfunction, are exploiting Democrats' divisions on Israel and antisemitism.
  • Then there's the spiraling anxiety about the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The party's 1968 convention, in Chicago, was plagued by chaotic protests of the Vietnam War.

The bottom line: The White House still believes ending the war in Gaza is the best — perhaps only — antidote to Biden's foreign policy and domestic crises. But there's no end in sight.

🎓 Schools find third way

Deals between four universities and pro-Palestinian protesters offer a rough roadmap for schools seeking to defuse tensions and shut down encampments before commencement, Axios' Sareen Habeshian writes.

🔬 Zoom in: The agreements — including two finalized in the past 36 hours — avoid sweeping and immediate changes to university investments, in favor of scholarships for Palestinian students and expanded academic programs:

  1. None of the four schools agreed to divest from companies that do business in Israel or aid the country's war effort, a key demand at schools across the country.
  2. All agreed to less concrete concessions around their endowments.
  3. Two of the agreements — Northwestern and Rutgers — include scholarships or aid for Palestinian students. They also promised to provide improved space for Muslims on campus.
  4. Minnesota told protesters it could explore an affiliation with a Palestinian university.
  5. The agreements provide some level of amnesty for students involved in encampments.

Troops fired on Kent State students in 1970. Survivors see echoes in today’s campus protests

KENT, Ohio (AP) — Dean Kahler flung himself to the ground and covered his head when the bullets started flying. The Ohio National Guard had opened fire on unarmed war protesters at Kent State University, and Kahler, a freshman, was among them.

📢 Exclusive poll: College students shrug

Data: Generation Lab. (Respondents selected up to three issues.) Chart: Axios Visuals

College protests are dominating headlines. But only a sliver of students are participating or view the Israel-Hamas war as a top issue, Axios' Sareen Habeshian writes from a new Generation Lab survey.

  • Why it matters: The poll hints that the war — and the accompanying protests — might not hurt President Biden's election prospects among young voters as much as some think.

🧮 By the numbers: Only a small minority (8%) of college students have participated in either side of the protests, the survey of 1,250 college students found.

  • Students ranked the conflict in the Middle East as the least important issue out of nine options (charted above).

Why Texas won't divest
 
UT protesters stand in front of the tower.

Pro-Palestinian protesters at UT Dallas and UT Arlington have made a specific request of university officials that's unlikely to be entertained — divest from weapons-manufacturing companies selling arms to the Israeli military.

Why it matters: Apart from whether divestment makes sense as a fiduciary or moral matter, the universities' unwillingness to bend on their portfolio is overdetermined by state politics.

  • UT campuses are overseen by a board of regents appointed by Gov. Greg Abbott and confirmed by state senators.

The big picture: Protests at Texas universities and campuses across the country have sought to use divestment as a tool to put pressure on Israel, whose bombardment of Gaza has killed tens of thousands of Palestinians, including many civilians.

  • Israel says it's responding to the Oct. 7 Hamas attack that killed some 1,200 people and during which around 240 were taken hostage.

State of play: The UT System's investment arm — UTIMCO — manages $74.6 billion in assets for the UT and Texas A&M systems. Among the investments are companies that produce weapons and ammunition used by Israel, per a list compiled by the Quaker organization American Friends Service Committee:

  • Lockheed Martin Corp., with UT shares valued at almost $1 million, per an annual audit report.
  • RTX (formerly Raytheon), with UT shares valued at nearly $600,000.
  • Northrop Corp., with UT shares valued at roughly $1.4 million.

What they're saying: "UT Dallas/UTIMCO must fully divest from corporations complicit and directly facilitating war, occupation, policing, militarism, and death in Palestine and around the world," the UTD Students for Justice in Palestine chapter wrote on Instagram.

The other side: "This will NEVER happen," Abbott wrote on X about the divestment demand.

Between the lines: "Colleges and universities have long been a target of Republican lawmakers due to the perception of liberal biases among faculty, staff, and students," Joshua Blank, research director of the Texas Politics Project at UT, tells Axios.
