A group of Harvard University students are jumping on allies of President of Donald Trump, trying to harm them as much as possible for their political opinions while writing their own version of history where Trump tried to commit an “insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021.

The students are demanding that Harvard degrees earned by Trump officials be pulled back to punish them.

“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes — rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression — incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” reads the hysterical petition, obtained by Fox Business. “This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election.”

The petition specifically names Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), and former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, but also claimed, “It’s no secret that over a dozen Harvard graduates worked hard to spread the disinformation and mistrust that created last Wednesday’s insurrection.”

“I was surprised how popular this petition is even among mid-career students,” one student told Fox, saying they were so scared they wished to remain anonymous. “It’s one thing for 22-year-olds to sign onto something radical but another thing for 40-year-olds to buy into it.”

The petition also made mention of the recent decision to remove Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), a 2006 Harvard graduate, from her role on the senior advisory board of the university’s Institute of Politics.

“[B]anning someone from a committee or campus because they incited a violent attempt to overthrow the U.S. government is the least the University can do; it still grants them the benefits of their Harvard degree everywhere outside of Cambridge,” the petition declared.
