Conservatives attacked on campus: Sucker-punched at UC Berkeley; Tulane U. dorm room door set on fire

Did you see this on TV news?

But the demon MSM persist in portraying the Right, not the Left, as violent loonies.

(1) Assault on U. C. Berkeley

On February 19, 2019, Hayden Williams, a conservative activist was viciously assaulted while recruiting for conservative student group Turning Point USA on the University of California-Berkeley campus.

Williams was passing out information about the group when he was approached by two angry men. A verbal altercation ensued. One of the men, Zachary Greenberg, viciously assaulted Williams with a sucker punch, as seen in this video footage and a GIF I had made from the video.

Donlad Trump Jr. tweeted about the assault:

On March 1, 2019, Zachary Greenberg, 28, was identified and arrested by UC Police — law enforcement booked him into jail at 1 PM. He is a former employee of UC Berkeley as a lab assistant in the Psychology Department who was briefly a non-degree seeking student at UC-Berkeley. (Heavy)

(2) Arson in Tulane University

Just after midnight on Saturday, March 25, 2019, three students set fire to the dorm room door of Tulane University sophomore, Peyton Lofton, whom university spokesman Mike Strecker “confirmed” as the president of Tulane’s chapter of the “right wing group Turning Point USA” and a member of a Libertarian organization called the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). (WVUE Fox 8)

Fortunately, flames were quickly put out. No injuries were reported, and the door only had “minor damage.”

Strecker said the incident was caught on security cameras, and the suspects were identified as Tulane University students Robert Money, 21, and David Shelton, 20, and Brown University student Naimi Okami, 20.

All three were arrested late Saturday for aggravated arson — a crime defined by Louisiana statute as intentionally setting a fire where it is foreseeable that human life is endangered — and booked into New Orleans Justice Center jail. They appeared in court the next day, where Orleans Parish Magistrate Commissioner Robert Jonathan Friedman set their bonds at $10,000 each. As of Sunday night, it appeared all three had been released on bail.

Lofton’s roommate, Jackson Arnold, told the university’s student newspaper Tulane Hullabaloo: “I think it was probably a drunk prank. I don’t want to rule out the idea that it was politically motivated. Don’t have any proof that it is, don’t have any proof that it isn’t.” Arnold said he did not have a relationship with any of the charged individuals and doesn’t believe Lofton did either.

According to Strecker, Tulane Police are still investigating the incident, and as of Sunday night, the reason for the crime was “not yet clear.” Strecker insists there is “no indication” the act was politically motivated, despite reports Lofton was targeted for his involvement in multiple conservative groups on campus. However, Strecker said the university is taking the incident very seriously and campus police are “thoroughly investigating” it:

“Tulane University is committed to protecting the safety of all in our community and to protecting free speech on campus. Our campuses are and should remain places where ideas can be expressed free of disruption, intimidation and violence.”

In a statement released by YAL, however, Lofton called the arsonists “radical activists”. He said:

“It’s a sad day in American when radical activists are lighting dorm room doors on fire because they disagree with you politically. I’m proud of the work I’m doing on and off campus with YAL and TPUSA to bring students to the principles of the Constitution and individual liberty. This only encourages me to continue the battle to reach my classmates with the message of freedom.”

Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) claims the door was set on fire after Lofton was identified as a member of YAL online. In a tweet, Turning Point USA executive director and founder Charlie Kirk also says Lofton was “doxxed by the violent left for being a conservative.” and calls the suspects “sick and dangerous”.

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted Kirk’s post, calling the incident a “horrible crime” and asks “Wonder if the media will report this horrible crime against a campus conservative?”.

Doxxing refers to the publishing of an individual’s personal information (e.g., name, address, phone number) online, which is typically done to encourage harassment or even physical harm.

Strecker would not comment on any possible disciplinary actions that may be taken against the students involved, saying federal law prohibits universities from disclosing such matters.

(3) President Trump Executive Order to Protect Free Speech

All of which finally prompted President Trump, on March 21, 2019, to sign an executive order to protect free speech on college campuses and universities, directing his cabinet agencies to tie federal grants for education and research to more aggressive enforcement of the First Amendment. (See Executive Order on Improving Free Inquiry, Transparency, and Accountability at Colleges and Universities)

But as noted by The Daily Wire‘s Ashe Schow, the executive order was largely ignored by the mainstream media.

This madness is increasing, truly a cancer on the body politic. I was in the East Bay-Berkeley area Feb. 1963 until June 1966, when I relocated to Redwood bush country 35 miles West of Garberville, CA. Once every 3 months or so myself and an employee (who was living with my wife & I) would travel to the East Bay and work for 2-3 weeks to earn cash for our country living. This was the era of confrontations between political protesters, usually from UCB, but often joined by hippies and interested citizens for political & social protests. This motley body… Read more »

You’re right (and very observant) about that. I was in Humboldt County in the 80’s. I was on a Church committee to try and bring down the violence between “Earth Firsters” and the loggers. We had several meetings between various “environmental” groups and loggers, as well industry types. There were distinctions as you say. This was a time where people were getting shot, bombed and trees “spiked” to harm the loggers. What I did learn was that few things are often what they first seem. Just as today, The Odor likes to use emotionally charged issues to further their agenda.… Read more »

That poor Trump kid isn’t very stout. Zachary, if you’re reading this, you’re welcome to sucker punch me. Name the time and place. Give ‘er a try

Just as an interest item, they dropped all the charges against “Jussie” today. He’s an “Order protected” guy. No one has to take my word for this. We are in a phase leading to a form of civil war. Cohesion is being shattered and diminished while emotions are being fanned. None of what we’re seeing is accidental. In light of this we need to adjust our thinking. These are not random “mistakes” or anomalies. These are coordinated attacks. Those actually performing these may not know who they’re working for but that doesn’t change a thing. With this recent New Zealand… Read more »

Since when did lefty wusses like Greenberg become thugs to be feared? I guess since they started getting protection from lefty cops in cities where they also protect illegals.

Here’s a street fighting take on Greenberg’s jukin’ and juvin’ wigger act. It’s all about setting up the sucker punch and it’s all the rage as a coward’s sort of martial art. I’m more than twice his age, and it’d be the last sucker punch that four-flushing faggot ever tried.

Goon 101. Amazing how Greenberg sends a profanity laced tirade at the victim saying he is the one spreading hate. Then Greenberg pulls that stunt. A Texan Sap would square up that sucker puncher. Nothing like “The Bucheimer Boogie” to get someones mind right…

Also saw where the Smollett charges were all dropped… Jussie must be suckin’ the right salami to make that magic happen….

From what I read he isn’t a “student”, per se, he just hangs around and audits classes. So basically, he’s a bum.

He gets to eyeball the pretty young things and pretend to be a social justice warrior. His victim should be suing the school for this one.

They have destroyed this country. There are one set of rules for the left and another for the right. Personally I think they’re trying to instigate a civil war. That way they can declare martial law.

Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable. You called it though….someone at the DA’s office got a call and that was the end of it. That slimy little coward ( I can think of other names…) will really think he’s king of the hill now. Unfortunately, as intended it now sends a loud clear signal to all the minorities that are mentally unstable and or hate filled etc., that if you are a Gay, Jew.or Black you can do anything to with impunity. If this new justice dept. were worth it’s salt he would still be called up on Federal crimes for sending something… Read more »

Well, just to add to the outrage, he has Avenatti’s co-defendant for a lawyer. By the way, he is sticking to his original story that two whitey’s attacked him, even though they all know otherwise. But, that’s the essence of this whole thing. It is designed to show Whitey his new place in the world. The idea it to get you used to the practice of unequal treatment. It’s like pat downs at the airport or taking your belt off. They don’t do those things because it makes flying safe. They do them because it gets you used to following… Read more »

Of course he’s sticking to his story. Soon enough, as soon as this swirls out in the “news” cycle, Smollet will be resurrected as a victim. Because the charges were dropped that proves he dindu nuffin. And none of this will be even a hiccup in his “career”. It will give it a boost in fact. Compensation for a loyal subject of the Odorous Empire. Nauseating

Maybe they can put up a statue in Ferguson for him? You know, a little bronze pansy being chased down the street by two black body builders with white paint on their faces.

Hey they made a hero out of that street thug, they ought to be able to do wonders with a black faery.

Imagine even dreaming of doing this to someone on the left. I can’t.

Liberalism is truly e mental disorder.

The Tulane students should be expelled and tried for arson. The UC offender should be expelled and tried for assault.

Absolutely! Of course, they won’t. As DCG says, “imagine doing this to someone on the left”. They’d be dragging you to jail behind a pickup.

Tulane prohibited from disclosing disciplinary action?
They should have been expelled for endangering the lives of fellow students.
If they are not blanket parties (no witness) would make them decide that remaining in Tulane was unhealthy.
