ISISSchool official supports inclusive club for terrorists

Project Veritas strikes again, this time exposing Ivy League school Cornell as welcoming of an ISIS club on campus.

The latest undercover video from James O’Keefe’s organization shows Joseph Scaffido, Assistant Dean for Students at Cornell, answering a series of questions on setting up a club supporting terrorist groups and even terrorist training. He never raises problems with such a club on campus.

“I think programs like that really do have a place here at Cornell,” Scaffido said in response to a question on sending care packages to ISIS “freedom fighters.”

The Project Veritas undercover reporter posed as a Mororccan student looking to study at Cornell next semester. As he asks a series of questions it is clear the “student” wants to set up a club that would support terrorists but the school official never bats an eye.

“The freedom fighters and their families in particular. I think it would be important to educate, but to maybe send them care packages be it food, water, electronics,” the reporter said.

“There are a lot of our student organizations that do things like that all over the world,” Scaffido said.

The reporter asked point blank about supporting Hamas or bringing in a “freedom fighter” to speak on campus and was told both would be allowed.

The most shocking statement came about setting up a training camp.

“Maybe we could get like a freedom fighter to come and do like a training camp for students?” the reporter said.

Scaffido’s answer was shocking.

“You would be allowed to do something like that. It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training on a sports team or something,” Scaffido said.

In addition, Scaffido told the prospective club organizer that the town of Ithaca, where Cornell is based, is very open and liberal, adding that the club would likely find support off campus in the wider community.

O’Keefe said that with Cornell receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer money over the last several years the school owes the American people an apology, or at least an explanation.

Joseph Scaffido, Assistant Dean at Cornell University, is captured on hidden camera advising a Project Veritas investigative journalist on how to start and fund a pro-ISIS club on campus, how to obtain funding to send care packages to ISIS and Hamas, and astonishingly, how to bring a member of ISIS to Cornell to run a “training camp.”
