We got a lovely email this morning.
“We heard you people are coming to our campus. We plan on being there in force to let you know it’s time your Nazi party disarms. Welcome to the University of Arizona. We are your nightmare, pigs.”
Whelp. Apparently word got out that our National Spokesman is speaking on campus next week.
Organizers of the event, which will take place at the Tucson University Park Hotel, say the idea of a protest over an event in support of the law enforcement community and the 100 Club of Arizona is just ridiculous.
“Protesting law enforcement is comparable to taking the front door off your home. You’re inviting crime and potential harm to you and your family,” said Chris King, First Vice Chairman, Pima County Republican Party.
Another message came in earlier this week from someone who claimed to be with Antifa:
“We are the future of this country. We also have much more training than you know. We have the ability to make Portland events look like a calm walk in the park. I hope that you are ready for us at your little ‘No Snowflakes Allowed’ event.”
King says ironically, law enforcement is ready to protect everyone at the event… including those who are there to protest the police.
When asked whether he was concerned about protestors, Kyle Reyes, our National Spokesman, just laughed.
We asked him again. He laughed harder.
“See you there, kids…” he said.
(Below… a preview of what to expect from Reyes…)
The event itself is built around showcasing both the need for the 2nd Amendment as well as the support for those who help protect it.
“The Supreme Court has affirmed that police do not have an affirmative duty to protect citizens not in their custody. This provides for basis for our constitutional carry in Arizona as we are personally responsible to protect ourselves,” said King.
The group felt it was important to show that although there’s often a created divide between police and politicians… the people stand behind law enforcement.
“In Tucson, over the last 15 years we have lost one third of our police department due to mismanagement and mis-prioritization of funds by our city council. We want to show the elected officials that we support our law enforcement personnel.”
Apparently that support is what’s got these protestors up in arms.
“When you bring together ur little CBP people and sheriffs and ‘patriots’ into one room like you people are planning on doing, you give the middle finger to our peoples. We are going to be so loud and in such force at your thing that maybe you will start listening to us and stop kicking our families of the country and start welcoming black lives and stop killing black people and give up your guns because police shouldn’t have them anyway because they are killing us with them,” said one activist in an email.
Oh. Ok. We’ll work on that whole “disarming the police” thing.
The University of Arizona is no stranger to activist groups attacking law enforcement.
Did you know that Law Enforcement Today has a private new home for those who support emergency responders and veterans? It’s called LET Unity, and it’s where we share the untold stories of those patriotic Americans. Every penny gets reinvested into giving these heroes a voice. Check it out today.
In March, a group of University of Arizona student activists filmed themselves confronting, harassing and relentlessly stalking two Border Patrol agents who had been invited on campus to participate in a job fair.

Shortly after the incident, charges were filed against these students, not only for breaking the University of Arizona code of conduct, but for their unlawful behavior that violated the state of Arizona’s statute of disorderly conduct. (ARS) 13-2904.
But the Pima County Attorney’s office later dropped the charges, after a group of instructors and professors demanded in a letter to the University of Arizona Police Department drop the charges against the student activists. You can read the story here.

Ms. LaWall, according to local residents, is well-known in this city for her ineffective leadership. She was stripped of her position as legal counsel for RICO expenditures in November of 2017, because of her connection with questionable expenditures, after an audit was conducted and rampant misuse of the funds was discovered.
She also boasts a close relationship with open border champion and U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva, whose office was recently outed for its cover-up of a sexual misconduct complaint in 2015.
