‘No comment’: AIM visits Stanford Law to hold students accountable
May 17, 2023
Stanford Law students are supposed to be America’s best and brightest future lawyers. Though due to recent events, where a horde of leftist students led by Associate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Dean, Tirien Steinbach, shouted down federal circuit judge Kyle Duncan from a speaking event, it has become clear that prestige does not coincide with tolerance or intelligence.
Accuracy in Media President Adam Guillette paid a visit to the Stanford Law campus to ask students what they thought of the incident where their classmates yelled horrific statements like “I hope your daughters get raped.”
The overwhelming responses of “No comment,” and “Not interested,” did not inspire confidence in the moral compass of these pupils who will play such an integral role in our society after graduation.
A lack of action has been the theme of the school’s administration. While Steinbach was eventually suspended, the staff did not reprimand the students involved.
As a result, AIM took the gauntlet and delivered a swift recourse. A select few students who were directly involved in the incident got a special gift from us during spring break. Mobile billboards were sent not only to the campus but to the homes of students with statements displayed such as “Mohit Mookim’s group of thugs shut down the speech of a federal judge at Stanford,” and “A member of Asher Morse’s group shouted, ‘I hope your daughters get raped!’”
Our actions were unsurprisingly met with upset parents and students alike. It was the least we could do in defense of freedom of speech, and we can only hope these young adults have learned their very public lesson.
