Cal State Fullerton professor assaults Republican student

In a tweet yesterday, the College Republicans (CR) of California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), @CSUFGOP, claims that:

A man claiming to be a professor has assaulted one of our protesters. We are in contact with the police.

According to the Orange County RegisterBreitbart and Campus Reform,   about 45 members of a CSUF student club, Students for Justice in Palestine, held a rally and march yesterday against President Trump’s executive order temporarily barring immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Another student group, CSUF Republicans, held a much smaller counter-protest.
Eric Canin, a part time anthropology professor, approached the College Republicans group as they were marching, and attempted to rip away the sign College Republican Jared Lopez was holding. Another College Republican, Bryce Ignalls, saw what was happening and tried to separate the professor from the student. Canin then struck Ignalls in the face.

Christopher Boyle, president of CSUF College Republicans, said:

“I saw a man who had told us he was a professor attacking Bryce Ingalls, and immediately intervened to physically restrain him until police arrived to apprehended him. At the time, students identified him as anthropology professor Eric Canin. A quick google search and the police report confirmed this. Eric Canin is a part time anthropology professor here at CSUF, and he took offense to our presence during the protest, and assaulted one of my College Republicans, Bryce Ingalls. It’s unfortunate that young republicans and College Republicans can’t take their safety for granted on campus and get attacked for their views. I felt shocked that this kind of violence could take place on our campus. Our job on campus is to stand up for republicans and conservatives and when I see anyone especially a professor physically attacking a student I feel like it’s my responsibility to step in and be the safeguard that republican students deserve. After he assaulted a student, I put him under a citizens arrest and I want to make sure he is going to be held accountable.”

Amanda McGuire, vice president of the CSUF College Republicans, said:

“The CRs organized a counter protest, with just signs, to multiple student organizations who created an Anti-’Muslim Ban’/Anti-Trump protest, which consisted of speakers and various activities. After some time they began to march around the campus with our group following no less than 100-200 feet behind. Along the route a professor came up and started asking questions asking if there were any professors with us (there wasn’t) [and] stating that only uneducated people would be out here counter protesting.
[Professor Eric Canin] continued to engage our group even though some of our members were over the conversation, and finally I turned and saw him lunge for a sign. Another member steps in between and he gets shoved, so he shoves back. Professor Canin managed to also push an ASI (student government) student [who was] trying to break up the scuffle.
I thought it was awful. We started the counter-protest displaying our views on immigration and students got to see other people who held different views. The professor’s actions were completely wrong and unwarranted to respond in a physically violent way to a student on the basis of simply disagreeing with his politics.”


CSUF campus police department said a report has been filed for “battery” and that one of the CR members wishes to press charges. Ali Deway, a senior at CSUF, observed that “People would already be in cuffs if this was done to the Democrats.”
Following the incident, Jeffrey D. Cook, the chief communications officer for California State University, Fullerton, declared on Twitter that “any violent incident, however isolated, cannot be tolerated and is unacceptable.” But in a later tweet on Feb. 8, CSUF College Republicans said:

“It appears that the professor that assaulted one of our members will not be penalized. We’ll keep you updated!”

Hannah Reams, a junior at CSUF, said, “Since Eric Canin is not a tenured professor, we encourage concerned citizens to call or email the school to ask for corrective action.”

LOCK UP THE ENLIGHTENED PROFESSOR, AND LET HIM COOL HIS HEELS IN THE COUNTY JAIL FOR ABOUT 30 DAYS. BEGIN IMMEDIATE ACTION TO HAVE HIS PROFESSORSHIP REMOVED. HE WILL GET THE IDEA AND SO WILL OTHERS WHO WOULD DO THE SAME.

And nobody protests against Kuwait.
The fault is of DT, always.
Bad weather, the fault lies with DT.
Your favorite sport team has been defeated, the blame is DT.
The scale tells you that you have a few kilograms more, blame it on DT.
How much people would give their life by take advantage of those magnificent facilities for study, and read books…

I’ve noticed that cameras seem to be the new reality for millennials….they see life from the lens.

Have people ALWAYS been THIS insane,but didn’t have the “media” to go public with it? This is a madness that never,EVER was seen by America 10 years ago.

With all the recent descent into wackoism with these professors, did they all attend the Ward Churchhill school of idiots?
Anyone that sends their kids to any of these schools, deserve what they get back.
I would rather raise a blue collar worker these days.

I’d be pressing assault charges if it had been me.

  • And that’s assuming I didn’t beat the sh*t out of him first.

Typical professor, violent if they don’t get their way. Useless major, btw.
Maybe he can get a job with that Click woman from Missouri University. Oh wait, he’s the wrong color, ha ha!

As I’ve said before—-I’m so glad my kids are all “over” this stage in their lives. I couldn’t pay money for ANY university in the USA these days for their educations unless the likes of Liberty University or similar….(which, BTW…I’ve been recommending to conservative parents when they ASK me to direct them in their searches for a conservative college for their kids). Furthermore…..years ago…before even all this LGTBWXYZ@#$% etc blew up…..my son had a “pro heterosexual” banner on a campus where he was a student, just opposite one of those LBTBQXYZ@#$% banners that were populating his campus…. and, when a… Read more »
