Members of the University of California – Los Angeles communist “Revolution Club” protested a recent Bruin Republican event by interrupting speakers and standing on an American flag.

Sabine Durden, an outspoken anti-illegal immigration activist and Trump supporter, was the keynote speaker for last week’s event. Durden was speaking at the event, titled “Sabine Durden: An Illegal Immigrant Killed My Child,” on behalf of her son, a former 9/11 dispatcher who was killed by an illegal immigrant.

A video obtained by The College Fix shows protestors outside the event using a megaphone to express their opposition of Durden and the U.S. in general.

“Is America great today when it wages a genocide against black and brown people… It’s murdering pigs, it’s murdering police shoot them down without any consequence?” the head protester asks. Fellow protesters answered, yelling “Hell no.”

“This whole system is criminal. This event is promoting a racist, fascist, xenophobic agenda. Illegal immigrants are not the real criminals,” the head protester continues. “The criminals are this country and the entire system that feeds on the exploitation and people of the world.”

The protesters, in unison, also chanted: “One, two, three, four, slavery, genocide and war. Five, six, seven, eight, America was never great.”

The College Fix also reports that when asked why they don’t “leave America if they hated it that much” by a passerby, the protestors said, “No thanks, we’d rather overthrow it.”

The video then shows more protesters interrupting the actual speaking event inside, condemning Durden’s use of the term “illegal aliens” and calling for open borders. One protester even erupted into full-on chanting and drumming while Durden was trying to speak.

Bruin Republicans and audience members both called on the police officers at the event to keep the peace but the officers did nothing. One student shouted, “Are the UCLAPD good for anything?”

Durden, on the brink of tears after the continual interruptions, told protesters, “I don’t mind anything you have to say, whether if you agree with me or not, but it’s incredibly hard to be here and talk about my son. I expect you guys to be somewhat respectful.”

Despite the protests, Durden made sure to stand strong and finish the event.

During the question and answer section of the event, an angry audience member asked, “How do we begin to address the history of genocide and the history of colonization before we go and mark the undocumented community as a whole as being a criminal identity?”

Durden replied stating, “The undocumented community are criminals by law. You have to take care of your own first before you can take care of others. So if I take care of my American people that have a right to be here first, and we have enough American criminals. We don’t need new criminals that aren’t even supposed to be here.”

When an audience member told Durden not to use the term “illegals,” she stood her ground, replying: “I’m going to continue to call then illegal aliens. I got a resident aliens card. Even if it’s 2 percent [of criminal activity] by illegal aliens, it’s 2 percent too many. … I’ve met so many moms and dads and family members who lost their loved ones because of illegal alien crime. … We have to stop the bleeding.”
