Campus Reform Editor-In-Chief Blames College Culture For Current Mob Mentality
Campus Reform editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones claimed the mob mentality that’s fueling liberals is coming from a chaotic culture on college campuses across the country.
“People have been wondering, ‘where did this mob come from?’ It came from the college campuses,” Jones said on “Fox & Friends” Friday. (RELATED: CNN’s Don Lemon Loses Cool, Tells Daily Beast’s Matt Lewis To ‘Shut Up’ During ‘Mob Mentality’ Debate)
“It was when the UVA case — it was when the Duke lacrosse case, when people didn’t get the outcomes that they wanted because there was a lack of evidence. When people lost the issues, then they decided to take things to violence,” Jones continued. “We see what conservative speakers on the college campuses — when they don’t like what you have to say, instead of battling it out with ideas, they resort to physical violence.”
Jones also cited Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California and her directive to liberal activists to harass members of the Trump administration.
“We’re so far out now to be calling for civility because they’ve lost control of their own party,” he declared.
“This is a full-blown socialist party that endorses Antifa, a domestic terrorist group, and again … we lost control of the campuses, and now it’s gone to Capitol Hill. It’s going to restaurants. And I will tell Americans, make sure that you’re protecting yourself. Make sure that you’re watching your back because again, the mob is out there and the Democratic leaders who called the mob, they cannot control this mob.”
Fox News’ Ed Henry asked if Trump and the GOP are partly to blame for the escalation, and Jones said there may be isolated incidents on the right, but it’s nothing compared to the tactics used by liberals and Democrats.
“I don’t see a lot of Republicans beating up people because of the ideas,” Jones replied.
“Yes, you may be able to name some isolated events, but pretty much when you see people attacking people, it’s the left. We go to work. We don’t have time to be protesting. We don’t have time to be going in crowds with Antifa with masks on our face. We’ve got jobs to do.”
