Milo Yiannopoulos Assaulted By Crazy Student Protesters at DePaul, Cops Do Nothing, by Robby Soave. Free speech for me, violence for thee.
DePaul University Black Lives Matter protesters shut down a Milo Yiannopoulos event on Tuesday night. They justified their illiberal actions on grounds that Yiannopoulos’s speech spreads hate and violence — which, incidentally, is true, given that the students retaliated by literally attacking him.
In video footage of the event, a female protester can clearly be seen striking Yiannopoulos in the face. This took place during the Q and A, which was interrupted by the female student and another activist, student Edward Ward. They were joined by ten other irate students. Yiannopoulos’s supporters tried to stop them, and police and security were called.
But neither the police nor campus security did anything to stop the activists. This was ironic, because DePaul had forced the College Republicans to pay several hundred extra dollars for security for the event, according to The College Fix. …
Again, the implication that there is a direct, causal relationship between offensive speech and violence is ironic, because the protesters were the ones using violence to threaten someone they didn’t agree with.
So why did the security do nothing while the guest speaker was being hit? Meet Kayla Johnson, The DePaul Protester Who Took a Swing At Milo.
The second lead protester at last night’s event at DePaul University has been identified as Kayla Johnson, the daughter of Juanita Johnson, who serves as the Chicago Police Department’s Director of Administration. …
Johnson rushed onto the stage behind Edward Ward, a political science graduate and minister who led the effort to shut down Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ event. From the stage, Johnson shouted at and taunted attendees. Eventually, she grabbed the microphone from an event organizer and taunted Yiannopoulos with it, taking several swings at his head. …
According to Facebook, Johnson is an African and Black Diaspora Studies major at DePaul University.
The corruption. The Republicans were forced to pay for security, which did nothing because the protestor hitting out at the speaker was connected with the police.
The hypocrisy trifecta. Imagine if the races had been reversed. Is this not a hostile educational environment for those not going with the narrative? Diversity of political thought and free speech are being actively suppressed at a university.
