“we refuse to be intimidated out of advocating for our community’s safety against hate, violence, and discrimination.”
This is a stupid claim which should not be taken seriously. Once again, the real goal is to prevent a conservative from speaking on campus.

USC students decry Ben Shapiro speech as threat to minorities’ safety, attempt to sabotage event
A group of student activists at USC has decried an upcoming speech by conservative firebrand Ben Shapiro — calling it a threat to minority students — and attempted to reserve seats in the venue in a effort to sabotage and shut the speech down.
Shapiro is scheduled to appear at the private school Oct. 4 for a speech titled “Facts Don’t Care About Your Feelings.” The USC Undergraduate Student Government agreed to provide $4,100 in funding for the event, hosted by Young Americans For Freedom at USC.
In response, campus groups launched the hashtag “#SoundTheAlarm,” saying “the safety and lives of minority communities on the University of Southern California’s campus is in harm’s way” because of the speech. In a statement, the student activists alleged Shapiro supports the “eradication of entire races” and added “we refuse to be intimidated out of advocating for our community’s safety against hate, violence, and discrimination.”
Screenshots obtained by The College Fix from Young America’s Foundation show that there were seats falsely reserved in the venue to host Shapiro. One shows numerous tickets purchased under the names “youre anatzi,” “fuck off,” and “no hate speech,” among other names. Another screenshot shows a USC student alerting peers “we’re trying to reserve as many tickets as possible to shut it down.”
