This is not something to take lightly. Totalitarianism is becoming all too common on our college campuses and that includes our state schools paid for with federal and state tax dollars.
After first sending numerous threats, radical students at California State University, Los Angeles barricaded the entrances of a theater where conservative commentator Ben Shapiro was set to deliver a speech about censorship and diversity on college campuses.
The violent hate groups – the Black Student Union and the Black Lives Matter chapter – brought in hundreds of demonstrators, including some so-called professors to block other students from attending the event.
“Protesters” shoved and shouted at attendees. They blocked the entrances so no one could enter or leave. This is at a university where students are allegedly learning. These are our future leaders.
“It was frightening. I felt like we were hostages in this room because we couldn’t get out,” one student told The Daily Signal.
More than a dozen police stayed inside the theater. A student pulled the fire alarm midway through but Shapiro continued on.
“Here’s my message to the bloviating jackasses outside: Toughen up, you spoiled brat snowflakes, if you actually want a better world,” Shapiro, editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, said to cheers.
Police had to escort Shapiro out for his safety.
These totalitarians not only hate free speech, they hate conservatives and anyone who dares to disagree with them.
The university president William Covino issued a weak statement.
“I strongly disagree with Mr. Shapiro’s views. But if Mr. Shapiro does appear, the university will allow him to speak,” Covino said in a prepared statement provided to The Daily Signal by YAF (Young America Foundation). “We will make every effort to ensure a climate of safety and security.”
He should be firing professors and seeking out the students who threatened the speaker but students are demanding he be fired.
Some of these idiots are now occupying the president’s office.
This is the speech that caused violence.
A professor named Melina Abdullah encouraged the protest-riot prior to the engagement. She describes herself on Twitter: Professor & Chair of Pan-African Studies at Cal State LA, #BlackLivesMatter organizer, Pan-Africanist, Hip Hop scholar, womanist, truth-teller, mama
