Hillary Clinton made the choice to go back to academia.
She’s probably regretting that decision now.
And Clinton was fuming when Columbia students did this one thing to her.
Hillary Clinton is determined to remain in the public sphere for as long as possible.
After her defeat to Donald Trump in 2016, she embarked on a world tour where she blamed her loss on everything from the Russians to women reluctantly voting with their Republican husbands.
Clinton then announced a return to academia where she would be teaching a class on foreign policy at Columbia University.
But the honeymoon was over when Columbia students organized a protest and disrupted one of her speeches.
The students protested a truck that drove around campus with a sign that read “Columbia’s leading antisemites.”
The people on the list blamed Israel for Hamas’s terror attacks on Israeli civilians.
The protesters claimed that the students were “doxxed.”
But the names displayed on the truck had signed their names to a letter condemning Israel for the Hamas attacks.
Similar letters have been circulated at other elite institutions, namely Harvard.
This wasn’t the first time Clinton had a speech disrupted.
At a separate event, a student challenged Clinton for not decrying Biden’s foreign policy failures.
NEW: Dozens of students staged a walkout on Hillary Clinton during her class at Columbia University to protest against the school’s handling of the “doxxing” truck.
Nothing like watching the left tear themselves apart.

Columbia University has long been a hotbed of campus radicalism.
Teachers College at Columbia is arguably the most notorious Ed school department in the country, pumping out far-left activists that go into academia and K-12 education.
Acclaimed theater director Andrei Serban left Columbia because he said that the school reminded him of the communist dictatorship of Romania that he fled in his youth.
Serban explained in an interview on Romanian television, “Universities in America are usually left. Columbia is some sort of socialist left, on its way toward full-blown communism, a new strain of communism . . . I am not exaggerating . . . It’s about political correctness [we’ve] reached that is now like a chronic disease, like a jaundice affecting America.”
After pro-Hamas protesters delighted in the death of innocent Israelis, Columbia professor Shai Davidai urged parents to take their kids out of elite universities.
In an impassioned speech, Davidai said, “I want this message to reach every parent who wants to send their kids to Columbia University and entrust their safety with us. I want all parents in America who sent their kids to NYU, to Harvard, to Stanford, to Berkeley . . . and I want to tell you that we cannot protect your child . . . We cannot protect your children from pro-terror student organizations because the president of the Columbia University will not speak out against pro-terror student organizations . . . because the presidents of Harvard or Stanford or Berkeley will not speak out against pro-terror students organizations.”
Clinton and other establishment Democrats thought they could control the radicals, but the situation has become a case of the tail wagging the dog.
