Jennifer Van Laar at Redstate.com reports that Fox News personality Tomi Lahren visited the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque yesterday to speak to the Turning Point USA chapter. She and other attendees had to be escorted to safety by State Police after a mob of leftist students forced their way into the student union, chanting obscene slogans, pulling the fire alarms, and threatening violence to shut down the right to free speech.
Lahren said there was a report of shots being fired that fortunately turned out to be false. But the leftist mob was pushing police officers who guarded the door and trying to burst in. Lahren, her dad and several TPUSA members were barricaded inside a back room for 45 minutes as the mob raged and threatened them. The school was apparently aware of the potential for trouble, but Lahren said they were “unbothered by the abhorrent and violent behavior of their students.”
Does this sound eerily familiar to you? Angry protesters, fired up by irresponsible political rhetoric, attack police as they try to force their way into a building to block their political opponents from doing their jobs? Fury, chaos, traumatized and terrorized people in fear for their lives? Doesn’t that sound exactly like the Democrats’ descriptions of the January 6th riot that was supposedly the worst crime in American history (the difference being that Lahren was actually in the building and having her life threatened while AOC was in a different building a block away)?
At this writing, I assume that President Biden has yet to awaken, but when he does, will he go on camera to denounce these violent leftist extremists who are posing a clear and present danger to our democracy and our Constitutional rights? Will he demand that all of those students be identified, expelled and prosecuted to the same extent that January 6th rioters have been prosecuted?
Don’t hold your breath. But if he won’t do it, then mark it down that I just did.
