Left-wing and conservative protesters at the University of Alabama united on Wednesday to express their disapproval of President Joe Biden. The protesters, who had gathered to voice their support for opposing sides in the conflict between Israel and the Hamas terrorist organization, temporarily set aside their differences to repeatedly chant, “F-ck Joe Biden!”

Maven Navarro, an editor at the University of Alabama’s school paper, The Crimson White, shared a video of the unified chants. Shortly after 5:30 p.m. (Central Time), pro-Palestinian protesters and pro-Israel protesters at the University of Alabama’s Student Center Plaza joined together in chants against the president.

The video shows pro-Palestinian protesters waving Palestinian flags and chanting, “F-ck Joe Biden.” Shortly after the pro-Palestinian protesters started chanting, the pro-Israel protesters also started chanting, “F-ck Joe Biden.”

The video of Wednesday’s protest quickly went viral on social media, with almost 16 million views on X, formerly Twitter, in less than 24 hours.

According to The Crimson White, Wednesday’s pro-Palestinian protest was organized by the University of Alabama’s Leftist Collective. The student organization demanded that the university cut all ties with Lockheed Martin, stop using Defense Department funds to conduct research, rename a university hall that was named after a former CEO of Lockheed Martin, disclose any investments made with the university’s endowment fund, and publicly call for a ceasefire in Gaza.

In a press release obtained by WVTM 13, the protest leaders said, “As students of the University of Alabama, we can no longer stand by in silent complicity as our institution funds a state-sponsored massacre of Palestinians.”

The press release claimed that the University of Alabama received $10.4 million in Defense Department funding in 2022 and that the university has a “very close relationship with Lockheed Martin.” The pro-Palestinian protesters also claimed that the defense contractor has provided Israel with a variety of weapons that are being used to “slaughter Palestinians.”

Wednesday’s protest at the University of Alabama comes as pro-Palestinian protesters have formed encampments at multiple universities throughout the United States.
