WASHINGTON – Today,U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) joined Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) and eight colleagues in a resolution condemning the violent antisemitic protests, which have erupted across college campuses. The resolution applauds the heroic actions of University of North Carolina (UNC) fraternity members who bravely protected the American flag after protestors attempted to replace it with a Palestinian flag. The resolution also applauds UNC interim Chancellor Lee Roberts for standing up to protestors, along with brave law enforcement officers in New York who have taken a stand against anti-American protestors.

Since April 18, 2024, more than 1,500 individuals have been arrested on campuses of institutions of higher education for engaging in violent, anti-Israel and anti-American protests,” the resolution reads.“Thousands of patriotic law enforcement officials have spent countless hours protecting the people of the United States from the violence at these protests. […]

A group of patriotic fraternity brothers at the University of North Carolina protected the American flag from being desecrated and replaced with a Palestinian flag by violent, anti-American and anti-Israel individuals. […] The people of the United States celebrate these patriotic fraternity brothers at the University of North Carolina and have sought to recognize and reward their heroic actions against the violent, anti-American and anti-Israel individuals. […] Fraternities can serve as institutions that promote patriotism, brotherhood, and overall support for the common good.”
