VIDEO: Check Out What Happened When These Students Defended Kavanaugh on Their Campus

Linkedin Share

A group of conservative students decided they were going to show their support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and for due process — which the left is doing their best to destroy along with their efforts to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the bench — found themselves surrounded by your typical enraged leftist wingnuts, who shouted them down and ripped their signs until they were escorted away by campus security.

You know, the left keeps talking about all of this “tolerance” business, yet they don’t seem capable of actually showing us with actions what that looks like. Instead, they go on rampages against anyone who dares to offer an opinion different from their own.

At around 11 a.m. Tuesday on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin, members of the Young Conservatives of Texas set up a pro-Kavanaugh/pro-due process display, complete with signs reading “No Campus Kangaroo Courts in Congress,” “KavaNotGuilty,” and “#MeToo gone #TooFar.” The students said that they had hoped to have some conversations with their fellow students, but that became increasingly difficult about an hour after they arrived.

“We did want people to talk to us, but unfortunately it’s hard to do that when you have an angry mob ripping our signs and screaming in our faces,” the club’s vice chairman Anthony Dolcefino told The Campus Fix.

“At the peak we had 150 people out there recording, screaming, rioting,” Dolcefino said. “The UTPD got involved, making sure people were not coming behind us.”

As videos posted on social media show, the crowd of protesters, which swells to large numbers, angrily denounces the YCT students for supporting Kavanaugh, at times chanting “We believe survivors!” and “F*** YCT!” and calling for them to be kicked off campus. The Campus Fix reports:

One student told the conservatives if they did not want their signs ripped up they should not have written such offensive things. Another video shows a protester violently grab signs out of the conservative students’ hands and rip them up before coming around their table and getting in their faces. Dolcefino said at one point one of their members was shoved as she had her sign snatched away.

Young folks today are zealous to stick up for the rights of victims and that is not necessarily a bad thing. However, in their zeal, they are seeking a solution to injustice that ends up flushing the very same legal system that protects their rights and makes justice possible right down the toilet.

It’s not their compassion that’s the problem. It’s what they are willing to throw out that’s the problem. By trashing due process, they are potentially setting themselves up to one day possibly be a victim of a false allegation that could destroy their lives.

Compassion needs to be tempered with wisdom and logic. That’s where these protesters are going astray.
