WTF Is Wrong With Our Colleges?! “This is how the Fascists Do It”: Attempt to Shut Down Ben Shapiro’s Lecture
A couple of days ago, it was reported the California State University, Los Angeles had cancelled the speaking appearance of conservative author Ben Shapiro because the event was not “inclusive” enough. However, sponsor of the event, Young America’s Foundation (YAF), and Shapiro increased their resolve to continue with the event as scheduled. On Thursday at CSULA, Ben Shapiro appeared as scheduled to speak. While he “discussed the threats he had received prior to visiting the campus,” someone triggered the fire alarm.
A program officer of the Young America’s Foundation, who helped organize the event, took to Twitter writing, “the crowd of leftists outside is so dangerous that we had to sneak students into the auditorium through the back door.”
Shapiro is correct. This is how the leftist liberals silence the opposition – through intimidation tactics and subtle threats of violence that will turn overt. It is reminiscent of the Black Panther tactics used to intimidate voters.
After the event concluded, the situation did not immediately improve. Shapiro stated the police notified him that “the crowd outside could pose a threat to his safety and escorted him off the campus through a secret exit.” Protestors continued to block the main entrance leaving attendees trapped inside the auditorium.
