Black Lives Matter mob shuts down Blue Lives Matter speaker at Claremont McKenna College

Black Lives Matter mob shuts down Blue Lives Matter speaker at Claremont McKenna College

Heather Mac Donald targeted by crazed protesters, while her UCLA appearance also disrupted.

Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has been one of the leading voices defending law enforcement officers in the age of Black Lives Matter, particularly by showing that much of the rhetoric about police shootings is statistically inaccurate or misleading.

Mac Donald’s willingness to take on the foundations of the Black Lives Matter movement has earned her the ire of the movement.

Mac Donald was supposed to give a speech at Claremont McKenna College but student supporters of Black Lives Matter went nuts. In a way, it was like a repeat of what happened at Middlebury College to Charles Murray.

The College Fix reports Angry mob shuts down Blue Lives Matter speech at Claremont McKenna College:

A throng of angry protesters converged at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday and effectively shut down a pro-police speech as they surrounded the building, forcing the speaker to give the talk via livestream to a near-empty room as they yelled “F*ck the police” and “Black Lives Matter” and banged on windows.

Heather Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book “The War on Cops,” even gave her talk earlier than originally planned at the preppy and private Southern California campus because of the rowdy crowd estimated at more than 250 protesters, she told The College Fix via email Thursday.

Thirty minutes into the speech, police officers told her to cut it short, and she was given a four-officer escort through a side door and safely through some surprised protesters who had flanked that exit, Mac Donald said.

This video shows the mob outside the building:

Here’s another angle:

And another view:

Just a day earlier, Mac Donald gave the same speech at UCLA and things went smoothly for the most part but left wing students couldn’t resist the urge to make it all about them.

The College Fix reported:

‘War on Cops’ author Heather Mac Donald shouted down at UCLA by hysterical Black Lives Matter protest

A speech by Heather Mac Donald at UCLA on Wednesday frequently descended into chaos as Black Lives Matter protesters stormed the stage and chanted their signature phrase over and over, and also took over portions of the Q&A with angry accusations and raucous shouting, a video of the event shows.

Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar who spoke on campus at the behest of the Bruin Republicans to give a “Blue Lives Matter” talk about her 2016 book “The War on Cops,” appeared to be able to largely get through the first half of her speech without much dissension.

But when she opened the floor to questions, the uproar began. The chants launched, with several people taking over the floor at the front of the room and continuing to yell over and over: “Black lives — they matter here! Black lives, they matter here!”…

After the uproar — which lasted about eight minutes — finally died down, Mac Donald (pictured) fielded questions from the audience, including from a black female who asked her to speak on whether “black victims killed by cops” mattered.

This is a video of the entire event but it’s cued to begin at the moment when things went haywire. Just press play:

Heather Mac Donald is the hawtness….

These “students” could use a hickory shampoo.

One wonders where they get the time to study?

    They don’t. These days it’s pretty much unnecessary. Just attending scheduled classes is pretty much enough for a “gentleman’s C”.

    No need to study when you are a “Studies” major. Show up, be oppressed, get an A.

I wonder if these leftists ever stop to realize that their actions mimic the actions of Stalin, Hitler, and Mao? Zero tolerance for any other point of view and physical violence if they do not get their way. All they need are brown shirts or the red brigade to take over.

What idiots.

Heather MacDonald is one of the finest, most clear-thinking writers in America. Whenever she speaks, you ignore her at your peril.

    …AND she’s the hawtness.

    Did I mention that?

    Smart wimmins…mmm…mummm…MMMM…!!!

      Rags, you’re drooling. And I can’t fit this towel through the USB port. You’ll have to find one of your own.

      I must say, it’s nice to see that you have a soft side. There have been times when I wondered.

As the university is responsible for the entire mess, they should be required to pay personal and civil rights penalty that might adjust their future attitudes with regards to acceptable student behavior. Hit them where it hurts

Those on the Left go to great lengths to avoid hearing opposing points of view. Why? Because many are so insecure in their own worldview that they are afraid that it will all come tumbling down if they allow any exposure to opposing views.

I should know, being a former liberal. I didn’t shout down the opposition, those many years ago. I just avoided hearing and reading opposing views. I’ve probably linked to this before, but if anyone is interested, I have a blog post on How I Became a Conservative ( ).

    JoAnne in reply to topcat69. | April 8, 2017 at 7:32 pm

    Read your blog post. Excellent.

      Thanks. I know that many / most people on the Left will never change. But there is still a significant number that there is still hope for. But they cannot “convert” if they are never exposed to conservative ideas. Which, of course, is why universities are so hostile to such ideas.

      One more point. I look at my evangelism efforts (you’ll note my blog post was at my church small group’s website of which I am webmaster), and I see those efforts as not just bringing people to Christ. A side benefit is opening the door to conservatism as well. Our church small group (if 40 or so is considered “small”) is universally conservative – though anyone can join. What a wonderful group of people! And yet, we are all called bigots and haters by people who have never even known a conservative evangelical, much less checked out a Sunday service or two. And “bitter” we are not, though we do cling to some things. All bitterness seems to emanate from the Left.

Interestingly enough, the original Brownshirts—who honed this sort of behavior to an art—had nothing warm & cuddly to say about blacks.

The incredible ignorance and rudeness on display here is maddening.

Water cannons…now.

Turn off the spigot of federal monies to all institutions of higher indoctrination, until and unless the students can comport themselves like reasonable, rational adults.

Where is it written that we taxpayers have to fund their crap?

Hit them where it hurts.

Wonder what the avg SAT score was among the protesters.

In the lefty utopia, there will be no need for free speech or a free press.

Liberals want to be enslaved. They’ll do anything to promote the insanity of Liberalism.
