Mary Katharine Ham had this to say about the possibility of shutting down pro-Hamas student groups:

“It’s a problem that there’s a double standard because then is there really a standard? But I won’t engage in the double standard for that reason. So here’s the issue, though, is I think instead of the governor doing this, you appeal to the school and you say, well, what are your actual rules for student groups? Right? And all those should meet the same criteria. Right? If hate speech is a problem for student groups being sanctioned on campus. Then it should apply across the board. But I think that’s a school action, not a government action.”
