The head of the New York State Republican Party accused Columbia University president Lee Bollinger of taking a veiled swipe at President Trump in a welcome back email message sent to students to start the fall semester.

Toward the end of the Sept. 4 statement, Bollinger, a registered Democrat according to Board of Election records, emphasizes that the tax-exempt university doesn’t take sides in elections or political controversies.

But Bollinger then lets it rip.

“I cannot close without expressing a larger concern about the wellbeing of America’s constitutional democracy,” he said.

“I have said many times over the past several years that, while the University takes no position on political issues, no matter how serious or even grave, a university cannot survive in a society that does not take seriously the basic elements of civic life—respect for truth, respect for reason as a means to truth, and the embrace of a foundational principle of human equality.

“In those, we have as much at stake as anyone and can, indeed must, devote our resources to their preservation. So, one priority we have as an institution is to assist students with voting, no matter where they are located in the United States or beyond, and you will be hearing more about this issue in the coming weeks.”

State GOP chairman NIck Langworthy said Bollinger’s statement was a slickly worded dog whistle attack aimed at Trump — using lines that partisan Democrats often use claiming the president repeatedly lies or disregards the truth.

“For a so-called top university, this is a poor attempt at trying to veil an attack against the President,” Langworthy said. “Sadly, it’s just another example of the indoctrination and group think that is rotting our higher education systems from the inside out.”

Bollinger declined requests for comment about GOP criticism of his statement to students.

Columbia has provided a welcoming mat for autocratic and anti-democratic figures to speak on campus — including the Jew-hating former president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Bollinger did slam Ahmadinejad as a “petty and cruel dictator” during the 2007 event.

Colleges and universities have to be careful to steer clear of politics to preserve their special tax-exempt status.

The US Senate has investigated universities in the past for among other things, financial arrangements involving former top White House officials.

Rioters Attack Car With Dog Inside, Allegedly Assault Gay Man, Destroy Businesses

Violent rioters, identified by journalists as allegedly being far-left antifa, attacked a car with a dog inside on Saturday in what was just one of a number of violent acts carried out by the fringe activists.

Journalist Andy Ngo, who recently testified in front of the U.S. Senate on antifa, wrote that the attack happened in Philadelphia: “Antifa black bloc militants smash up a car that has a dog in the back. Far-left rioters gathered today to oppose a right-wing event at Clark Park.”

Journalist Elijah Schaffer, who appeared to be the one who recorded the video, added the following context: “Antifa mistakingly attacks an Anti-Trump protester calling him a Nazi. Destroys his car while he tried to escape after he tried to assault content creator @realJamesKlug w/ a bar. A dog is in the back, clearly terrified, & barks as black bloc smashes his windows.”

Journalist Drew Hernandez, who was reporting from Washington, D.C., highlighted a different incident that unfolded.

“A DC BLM activist physically assaults a gay man by hitting him in the face with her megaphone,” Hernandez wrote. “Antifa militants then trespass the front yard of his friend they are having a get together on and begin to lay hands on him.”

“DC BLM and Antifa descended upon a gay neighborhood tonight and began to intimidate and harass multiple gay people,” Hernandez continued, “Including a man with his puppy accusing him of ‘physically assaulting’ them and for not wearing a mask.”

“Attorney General William Barr reportedly told U.S. federal prosecutors during a conference call last week that they needed to be aggressive in charging the violent rioters terrorizing American cities, adding that prosecutors should consider going after them for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government,” The Daily Wire reported. “The conference call comes as the U.S. is just weeks away from the upcoming November elections, which Barr warned could spark even more violent riots than the ones that have already caused billions of dollars in damage.”

A recently leaked email from a top DHS official said that the department had  “overwhelming intelligence” that the extremist violence in Portland was “organized” by individuals with an ideology categorized as “Violent Antifa Anarchist Inspired” (VAAI).

The Daily Wire added: “One step that the feds have taken to get around local leftist prosecutors who are dropping many of the charges against those charged during the violent riots was deputizing police in Oregon so that federal charges could be sought against those who might escape local charges.”
