UC Davis: Protests shut down controversial speakers

UC Davis: Protests shut down controversial speakers

Several hundred protesters, chanting and yelling, managed to shut down the event, billed as the first stop on Yiannopoulos' "Dangerous Faggot" college campus tour. The call to nix the event altogether came just thirty minutes before the men were scheduled to speak.

Breitbart is the news site he writes for.

Yiannopoulos, who has been banned for life from Twitter, claimed on Facebook that the speech was canceled after "violence from left-wing protesters", despite there being no reports of violence and no arrests.

Milo Yiannopoulos and the campus Republican Club lashed out after the event was canceled by marching on the campus of UC Davis.

"The police have been excellent, the students are being completely peaceful and respectful, and they are standing up for the rights of the community", said a UC Davis college counsellor as protesters outside reportedly smashed windows and threw barricades at police.

This is the sort of thing to definitely consider before inviting a lying, manipulative bigot to your campus.

Shkreli stepped down as the head of Turing Pharmaceuticals a year ago after he was charged with securities fraud.

My Michelle amour, you're the only one that we adore. "I hope it does not get touched because that makes sense", she said. "We love you, we love you!" said Stevie after his performance. "My Michelle amour, lovely as a summer day".

"So right now we need to be more fearless and stronger about saying no to the spread of hate speech in our communities", said UC Davis student Emily Breuninger.

Shkreil, the former chief executive of Turing Pharmaceuticals, grabbed worldwide headlines after significantly hiking the cost of Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent in 2015.

Yiannapolous was invited to speak on campus by the Davis College Republicans.

"The university's commitment to free speech is not an obligation to provide a formal podium for every form on nonacademic, hateful rhetoric that student groups wish to bring to campus", according to the letter addressed to campus officials and the Davis College Republicans. An angry protester threw what appeared to be dog poop, hitting despised pharma bro Martin Shkreli in the face.

"The student's lives were at risk", said Mendoza. He was speaking to reporters when it happened on Friday at UC Davis. "As I have stated repeatedly, a university is at its best when it listens to and critically engages opposing views, especially ones that many of us find upsetting or even offensive", he said. Even if cancelling the event was their intent.

Do you think the protestors went too far by throwing feces at Shkreli or did he deserve this treatment? But university officials said no property was damaged, and only one person was arrested.
