Conservative Student Attacked at Charlottesville Vigil in Syracuse
Masked Antifa thug: “We don’t want you here!”
Let’s play a game. Pretend that a conservative white student approached a liberal black student at an event and said “You’re not welcome here.” What do you think would happen?
We all know what would happen. Liberal students would lose their minds and the conservative student would probably be reprimanded and forced into a diversity program.
If you switch the ideology of the students however, it’s apparently acceptable. This actually happened to a conservative black student from Ithaca College.
Spencer Brown of the Young America’s Foundation reports:
EXCLUSIVE YAF VIDEO: Conservative Student Attacked For Wearing YAF Hat At Vigil For Charlottesville Victims
Caleb Slater, a conservative student and the president of the Ithaca College Republicans, recently attended YAF’s 39th Annual National Conservative Student Conference, where he received a baseball cap with the Young America’s Foundation logo and our slogan, “The Conservative Movement Starts Here,” printed on the back. Caleb chose to wear his YAF hat when he attended a vigil in Syracuse, New York, for the victims of last weekend’s violent clash in Charlottesville.
“I wore my Young America’s Foundation hat to the rally as a symbol of peace,” Caleb explained. “I wore the hat to show that conservatives condemn the actions of the alt-right just as much as anyone else in our culture.” It was this hat that earned Caleb the attention of antifa supporters at the same rally, and led to a violent attack caught on camera.
This incident highlights the true intolerance of the Left today: when a conservative goes out of their way to find common ground with their ideological rivals, leftists lash out merely due to a conservative logo and slogan on a ball cap.
Here’s a video of the incident:
Caleb described the experience to YAF:
About an hour into the rally a participant noticed my hat and proceeded to stick up his middle finger at me and then direct the other antifa supporters of my very presence. One of the girls from antifa, dressed in all black, began to shout me down and ask, “Are you with right wing media? Why do you have the fu**ing hat on? You’re with Young America’s Foundation?” I simply responded by informing them that I meant no harm and was peacefully assembling. She then proceeded to yell loudly, “We don’t want you here.”
At this point I turned on my camera, because I did not know what they planned on doing to me. She got more aggressive and antifa supporters surrounded me, like a pack of wolves. One member tried to grab my camera, to which I latched hard to, so that they would not damage my personal property.
Another member of antifa took the hat off my head, screamed more expletives and tossed my YAF hat away. It was at this moment the camera stopped rolling, as someone pressed the record button on my camera and then proceeded to yank on the strap of my camera, choking me.
Three or four of them then proceeded to continue to scream, “We don’t want you here!” while grabbing me by my button up shirt and dragging me off Clinton Square and into the street. This was NOT a blocked off road and cars were present. I could have gotten run over and they did not care.
If this incident does nothing else, it proves that leftists are lying when they claim to care about people of color. They care about ideology and anyone who thinks the wrong way will be dealt with harshly, regardless of race.

What would the sheriff, Matt Dillon, do?
These young female antifas are gonna be a step ahead when sharia takes over.
They already accept having their faces covered.
Yea I notice that these masked punks only pull stuff like this in area’s that are Anti-Self Defense (aka where people aren’t allowed to carry firearms for defense and are usually even restricted from carrying things like pepper spray.)
Notice that nobody at the rally tried to stop these thugs from assaulting this young man. And who wears a mask and sunglasses to a peaceful rally?
You simply can’t reason with these animals. They see NAZI’s coming out of the woodwork! They’re animals, treat them as such.
remember in the 1920s Germany the hitler jugend ?
another, more accurate, name for ‘anti fa’ is Fascist.
Anti (F)irst (A)mendment.
The NYT, SPLC et al like to play semantic games. You are the Nazi.
Oh, welcome to America. Leave your national socialist orientation… and twilight quasi-religious/moral philosophy, behind.
Came across an article from a few years back . . .
It lays out the entire horrific truth about Che Guevara.
Here’s my thought. Time to turn around the microaggression movement on the college campuses and give them a taste of their own medicine.
Every time a conservative student sees a poster of Che in a dorm room, listens to a nutjob professor try to whitewash Che’s legacy or something similar . . . report it to the school as a microaggression and demand removal of the offending image and request the professor to write a public apology for offending the sensibilities of those who believe that murder is wrong.
I’m not saying we should make this a constant thing but as a conservative form of non-violent protest I can’t think of one that will drive the left crazy more than something like this.
Fascism (left or right) goes hand in hand with genocide. Never fails. We’re on the verge.
Soros et al are funding a fascist revolution in our country.
The rats of the GOPe are aiding and abetting, thinking they’ll be left in their cushy positions if they comply. (They’ll be like the Jewish Kapos in the concentration camps, who thought they escaped death by aiding the death camp process – but then found themselves dead alongside the people they betrayed.)
Resist Socialist Oppression!
Socialist Oppression takes many forms, all too frequently including violence. The leftist media will not expose the leftist thugs willing to go violent on innocent Americans. We need to organize to protect each other and document the coming leftist atrocities.
BTW – Nazis are socialist also….
This is not a battle of left vs right.
It is a battle of Americanism vs Totalitarianism.
Tell that to Jewish Ghetto Policemen McConnell and Ryan:
The GOPe is the modern-day Judenrat:
“The Nazis systematically sought to weaken the resistance potential and opportunities of the Jews of Eastern Europe. The early Judenräte were foremost to report numbers of their Jewish populations, clear residences and turn them over, present workers for forced labour, confiscate valuables, and collect tribute and turn these over. Failure to comply would incur the risk of collective punishments or other measures. Later tasks of the Judenräte included turning over community members for deportation.”
Breitbart had a little story yesterday, that the SPLC had identified the organizer of the Rightists in Charlottesville,
as an Individual who had been a prime-mover of the Occupy Wall Street action a few years ago, and who had been an ardent supporter of Obama in the ’14 election.
An interesting piece of information, no?
If this turns out to be factual it could sink the Left in this country, for good. Thus, I think it would be worthwhile pin it down.
Oh, the “SPLC”??? That’s the Southern Poverty Law Center….
A far left-organization if there ever was one. It is this little fact that gives the story such weight.
Do you have a link?
Note especially that according to the YAF account, Antifa goons sought them out. They were minding their own business until they were set upon.
Antifa are fascist goons who look to start fights because they think it’s fun.
What will it take for the so-called antifa and BLM groups (I call them domestic terrorists) to be seen for what and who they really are?!
The MSM won’t broadcast it – and, if they follow their “we did cover it” lie, then when they do it’s a short blurb, not 24/7 airtime for days on end.
Until the broadcast media in this country is exposed as the leftist-controlled, self-appointed propaganda machine they are, and restored as a legitimate 4th estate, then we are at the mercy of their lies, their propaganda and their leftist, extreme agenda.
Almost makes me cry………it’s so sad to watch this great nation go down so far, all because of some leftists who planned for the long-game, and stole every media outlet, every NPO (e.g. Southern Poverty Law Center, American Anti-Defamation League, etc.).

I write them up as antiFirstAmendmentcommunists when posting at sites with liberals.
Didn’t the media writhe in horror at the silent protest Muslim lady who was booted from the Trump rally?
Here, not so much…gotta levy more racism charges and get the governator to infomercial us as to how we should think.
