Mob of Students Shut Down ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Lecture

Share:

CLAREMONT, Calif. – A mob of over 250 angry student protesters derailed a lecture on the rise of anti-police attitudes in the United States held at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday.

GovXThe speaker, Heather Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book “The War on Cops,” was met with a sizable resistance before her scheduled lecture at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday evening. Student protesters banged on windows and shouted “F*** the police” and “Black Lives Matter,” ultimately forcing the lecture to be livestreamed online from a near-empty room on campus, reported Breitbart.

Just a day before her event at Claremont McKenna, a similar event was derailed by protesters at UCLA.

“The protesters surrounded all the doors to the Atheneum where I was supposed to speak, so none of the students who had signed up to attend my lecture could get in,” Mac Donald said. “I was hustled from my guest suite by several police officers from Claremont PD into the lecture hall. It was decided that I would give the speech for live streaming to a largely empty hall. The organizers moved the podium so that it would not be visible through the windows to the students surrounding the building once night fell. We jumpstarted the timing of my talk as the crowd seemed to be getting more unruly.”
