During an event held at Santa Clara University, the conservative group Turning Point USA hosted a peaceful anti-socialist demonstration. According to Campus Reform, local students held an event May 31 that recognized the millions of innocent people killed under socialist and communist regimes.
Estimates vary, but the death toll from far-left governments is believed to be in the tens of millions, if not more.
The Black Book of Communism, published by Harvard University, estimates a death toll of near 100 million from communism and socialism, with the Soviet Union and China responsible for the most atrocities.
One liberal, however, couldn’t handle being calmly presented with facts.
“Incensed by the display, an outraged individual approached the TPUSA students as they were tabling nearby, ripping up their anti-socialist posters and calling them ‘a bunch of f—ing Trump supporters,” reported Campus Reform.
The tirade was also captured on video.
“(T)he student was seen standing close to the student organizers and ripping one of the event posters that was taped to their table. The activist also vocally defended some socialist governments, and criticized capitalist exploitation of poor nations,” the outlet reported.
Apparently destroying someone else’s property is completely fine as long as you claim to stand with the poor, while ignoring the appalling poverty of socialist nations like Venezuela.
The radical liberal’s rant became even more physical.
“In addition to her verbal tirade, the instigator also allegedly attempted to flip over the chapter’s table in the direction of several student members and slap the phone of TPUSA chapter president Rhaaghav Kanodia out of his hand,” Campus Reform stated.
When a military cadet with a college ROTC group tried to talk to the woman, she insulted his uniform and declared it was only used “to shoot brown people.” Classy.
For their part, the conservative students kept their cool.
“According to the video obtained by Campus Reform, as well as eyewitness testimony, not a single member of the TPUSA chapter physically confronted the instigator. Instead, the students calmly attempted to hold a conversation with the activist before asking her to leave the area,” that outlet reported.
“When the chapter president asked the woman to ‘please be respectful or leave,’ the instigator told him to ‘sit your a– down’ and ‘shut the f— up,’ according to witnesses. The woman ultimately fled the area when campus security approached the scene.”
Student members of Turning Point USA expressed frustration that even when presented with evidence, campus officials do almost nothing to protect conservative free speech or hold out-of-control leftists accountable for their actions.
The ability to deal with uncomfortable information, and to calmly debate a topic of disagreement, is the hallmark of an adult, educated person.
Increasingly, it looks like liberal college students are graduating with paper degrees, but almost no tolerance for other people or diverse views.
