DEVELOPING STORY: Antifa thugs and an assortment of anarchists are causing mayhem on the campus of UC Davis in advance of tonight’s address by Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk.
Video’s show Antifa thugs using pepper spray and umbrellas as weapons against law-abiding conservative students. Police are making a number of arrests.
Earlier in the day UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May called Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk a “proponent of hate” and encouraged students to “neutralize and negate” TPUSA’s influence on campus.
The Sacramento Bee labeled Kirk a “fascist” and a “vocal transphobe and Donald Trump fanatic.”
“While I abhor the inflammatory speech of this speaker, UC policy permits the students to invite this speaker,” May said. “We will be monitoring the event closely to determine if a threat or incitement develops that meets that threshold, or violates other campus policies.”
