VIDEO: Leftist Agitators Crash College Republicans Meeting — Demand Safe Space!
UC Santa Cruz’s College Republicans club was crashed by angry leftists demanding a safe space. Huh? The agitators could have easily avoided the ‘triggering’ club by simply steering clear of the meeting room.
Campus Reform reports:
Shortly after the CR meeting convened, one student entered the ground floor room of McHenry Library to ask attendees which group was assembling. After being informed that the meeting was a gathering of College Republicans, the student returned about 15-20 minutes later with company. One of the ringleaders of the protest was student activist Haik Adamian, who posted an announcement in the official UCSC Student Facebook group calling on students to deny the CR group its First Amendment rights. “White Supremacist, fascist sympathizing College Republicans are having a meeting at McHenry library, room 0332. Everybody be aware of this violent racist activity happening everyday on this campus!” he wrote, adding that “We need a movement of people on this campus that rejects the ‘right of assembly,’ or ‘right of free speech’ for white supremacists and fascists.” Heeding Adamian’s call, student activists disrupted the meeting by banging open the door to the meeting space and shouting accusations that the members were “fascists,” “racists,” and “white supremacists.” According to the UCSC College Republicans, their offers to discuss the concerns of the protesters were met with exclamations that “dialogue is violence,” after which the protesters called the club’s presence a “threat to the library” and demanded that the CR members vacate the space immediately.
One of the leftists deploys one of the most tired and flawed arguments, comparing conservatives to nazis. Another student freaks on free speech defender, yelling “you’re protecting the College Republicans more than the College Republicans are protecting themselves — so to me, you are a Republican.”
“They’re good people, you know nothing about them,” the young man replies.
“They’re good people? That’s great. I’m glad that you think white supremacists are good people,” the young woman responds.
The young woman then claims College Republicans “have been meeting in here…doesn’t feel safe to us, so that’s why we’re here.”
