A pro-Israel “doxxing truck” broadcast the names and faces of “Yale’s leading anti-Semites” near the university’s New Haven campus on Thursday, according to the school newspaper.
The Ivy League university is the latest school visited by one of the trucks, sponsored by Accuracy in Media. [AIM] as part of its “University Responsibility Campaign”. The shame machine had previously toured Harvard, Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania.
The truck was seen in different parts of campus between approximately noon and 4 p.m., according to the Yale Daily News.
At least six students’ faces were displayed on its giant video screen along with their names in bright, bold letters.
Five of the six are graduate students, the newspaper reported.
AIM announced the truck’s presence at Yale on social media Thursday, writing, “Our Campus Accountability Campaign is at @Yale today to highlight the rampant anti-Semitism of radical ‘scholars’ on campus.”

The post included a link to a website yalehatesjews.com, which encourages people to send a message to the university’s board of trustees about a statement by academics blaming “Israel and the United States rather than terrorists” for the deadly attacks by Hamas against the Jewish state last month.
It is unclear which statement the organization was referring to, the Yale Daily News reported.
The Post has contacted Yale for comment on the doxxing truck.

Just days after the October 7 attacks on Israel, a Yale professor faced calls to be fired after she expressed support for Hamas online and called Israel “a murderous, genocidal settler state.”
The Yale Daily News also faced criticism last month after it censored a pro-Israel sophomore’s column by removing what it called “baseless claims that Hamas raped women and beheaded men.”
AIM also urged people to take action and sign a similar petition against Hunter College in New York City on Thursday.

College campuses across the country have become a battleground between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian supporters as the war in Gaza continues into its sixth week.
More than 11,000 Palestinians have been killed since Israel’s military response to Hamas’ surprise attack in which some 1,200 Israelis were massacred.
