“I have to look behind my shoulder whenever I am on campus”
Good for this student. People need to stand up for their rights in the face of threats of any kind.

UC Berkeley conservative student sues Antifa member over threats, harassment
The former president of the Berkeley College Republicans at the University of California, Berkeley said Wednesday he is suing a prominent member of an Antifa group for allegedly threatening and harassing him and others on campus.
Mark Meuser, one of the lawyers representing Troy Worden, announced the lawsuit seeking more than $100,000 of damages against Yvette Felarca in a press release, The Washington Examiner reported.
Felarca is the leader of By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), an Antifa, or anti-fascist, group.
“Felarca filed a frivolous restraining order that restricted Worden’s First and Second Amendment rights and made it difficult for him to move around the campus to attend classes. The restraining order was dismissed on Oct. 27, 2017,” Meuser said.
In a previous interview with Fox News, Worden he’s had to face months of “talking, harassment and even violence,” along with other UC Berkeley College Republicans (BCR).
“I have to look behind my shoulder whenever I am on campus and especially when I am engaged in political activism,” Worden said.
“The No. 1 public university in the world and the so-called ‘birthplace of the free speech movement’ is anything but. It is the place where America’s conservative youth are daily under threat of violence, lacking the support of the university administration, police, or city,” he added. “The Free Speech Movement is dead, and the left has killed it.”
