Feminist protesters smeared fake blood on their faces and attempted to disrupt a talk by Breitbart journalist Milo Yiannopoulos on Tuesday at Rutgers University, only to be drowned out by loud chants of “Trump” from the crowd.
“We can agree, I think, the purpose of a university, the reason that we are all here, is to interrogate new ideas, to discover new things about ourselves, to experiment with dangerous ideas, to experiment with new forms of knowledge and to meet new people, to introduce ourselves to new experiences and to learn about the world around us,” Yiannopoulos said to a full audience at Rutgers.
Yiannopoulos’s lecture at Rutgers is part of his “Dangerous Faggot Tour,” the goal of which is to rout progressives who try and restrict speech in the name of diversity and equality.
Yiannopoulos argued the concept of “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” detracts against the existence of universities in the first place.
“In my view, anybody who asks for a trigger warning or a safe space should be immediately expelled,” Yiannopoulos said.
The crowd cheered and began clapping. As Yiannopoulos continued, one feminist yelled out, “This man represents hatred!” Feminists took the interruption as a signal to stand up and start smearing fake blood on their faces, while raising their fists in the air. Raised fists soon gave way to a feminist chant of “Black lives matter.”
Not to be outdone, the rest of the crowd turned on the protests and started chanting, “Trump, Trump, Trump” to drown out the noise. Some of the other chants from the audience included, “Tumblr isn’t a credible source,” and “Lesbians aren’t real.” The protesters then proceeded to walk out of the building one by one, giving the middle finger to the audience as they exited.
Following the protest, student activist Nyuma Waggeh told Rutger’s paper The Daily Targum, that university groups “should not be inviting anyone like Yiannopoulos because what we stand for is inclusion and diversity. If a speaker makes someone feel unsafe or uncomfortable, then they should not come to campus.”
