LEFTIST VIOLENCE ON CAMPUS
While recruiting for our @TPUSA group at UC Berkeley a leftist thug comes & assaults our activists punching him in the face & hitting him repeatedly
Imagine if the attacker was wearing MAGA hat, would be national news!
This is the violent left!

The victim had been passing out information about the conservative student group when he was approached by two angry men. After a verbal altercation ensued, he pulled out his phone to begin filming.
“One of the two men slapped the phone out of the victim’s hand and proceeded to knock over the table, the victim further alleged. While he and the suspect struggled for the phone, the suspect punched the victim several times, causing injury to the victim’s eye and nose, the alert said,” the Daily Californian reports.
Kirk confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that the student reported the assault to the police.
The attacker left the scene before police arrived. Anyone with information about his identity is being asked to call (510) 642-6760.
Earlier this week, conservative activist Scott Presler reported that he was hit with projectiles and had gay slurs shouted at him while out holding a pro-Trump sign and advocating for the president’s policies.
The same morning, a woman locked her Twitter account after posting a video of herself harassing an elderly man in a thrift store over his Make America Great Again hat.
On Saturday, a couple had a gun pulled on them while shopping at Sam’s Club because they were wearing MAGA hats.
None of these incidents have received mainstream media coverage.
