If you haven’t realized, Ivy League schools and college campuses nationwide have become a breeding ground for leftist ideologies in recent years. Finally, it seems like at least one school has had enough.

Enter Yale University’s New Haven, Connecticut, campus.

Here, like most left-leaning schools, pro-Palestine protests have been occurring on near-weekly, if not daily, occasions. In this case, students and protesters have literally been camped out at the area known as Beinecke Plaza for days now.

Naturally, the university is tired of their intrusion and the amount of noise, trash, etc., they are bringing to the area.

So at 7:00 a.m. on Monday, police showed up to move everyone out and arrest those who didn’t.

And they weren’t kidding.

As the Yale Daily News reported, police promptly began blocking the entrances to the area at 7. They also began warning the protesters on site that they needed to clear out or else face arrest. A “few minutes later,” the arrests began.

At first, it was just 13.

At about 7:15, police officers began taking down the protesters’ tents and cleaning out the area.

Naturally, a few bull-headed students still refused to leave. And so more arrests occurred.

The Daily News reported at 7:52, “Remaining protesters remaining on the Plaza have been arrested. No students are left on the Plaza.”

By the end of the morning, it was reported by Yale Police Chief Anthony Campbell that 40 to 45 students had been arrested. Most, if not all, would be almost immediately released after processing.

Of course, after their release, many returned to occupy busy local intersections, where sit-ins occurred.
