( – The NYC Police Department released a video showcasing a professional “protest consultant” instructing a group of anti-Israel agitators as they seized control of Hamilton Hall at Columbia University overnight Monday. The protest consultant was captured on various social media videos.

Mayor Eric Adams of New York City addressed the issue of outside agitators during a press conference on Tuesday evening. 

The Democratic Mayor expressed his concerns that otherwise peaceful protests were being disrupted by professional agitators. 

Adams noted that the external actors were not students and, therefore, their presence at Campus protests violated Columbia University’s policies. 

The Mayor described this group as outside agitators with a track record of escalating situations and inciting chaos. 

He emphasized that their motives are self-serving and aimed at disrupting peaceful gatherings rather than promoting unity or peaceful expression. Mayor Adams urged all those involved to disengage immediately. 

The police also revealed that some of these outside agitators have been on the NYPD’s radar for years, noting an increase in aggressive tactics believed to be influenced by external guidance. 

These tactics include making barricades out of furniture, fortifying or creating shields with signs, and destroying property. Furthermore, they warned such protest interference could spread to other New York Universities and, possibly, across the country.

Ira Stoll, speaking to Laura Ingraham on Fox’s “Ingraham Report,” mentioned that many of these professional protestors are being financially compensated for their involvement, receiving as much as $3,000 for eight hours of work, adding that many had been receiving “hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Soros Open Society Foundation.”
