“waited for me in his car and tried to hit me with his vehicle twice as I was walking”
Katie Daviscourt is a student at South Seattle College and a leader of the school’s Turning Point USA chapter. She recently had a scary experience with a male student who bothered her while she was at a table exhibit and allegedly tried to hit her with his car.
Jason Rantz of KTTH Radio in Seattle reported:
Rantz: Conservative college student harassed, stalked by Seattle activist
A conservative college student said she was harassed and stalked by an unhinged Seattle student activist who was mad she held views he disagreed with. After confronting her many times on campus, he allegedly tried to run her over, or intimidate her, in a parking lot. Now, the police are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
Katie Daviscourt is a student at South Seattle College and is the chair of their chapter of Turning Point USA, a conservative student organization. She and another student hosted a table on campus to alert classmates of their message last Thursday. This angered a man, who police have not yet identified.
“He started vandalizing our table and trying to take the posters off,” Daviscourt told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. “And the second he takes the ‘Big Government Sucks’ sign, I let him know, ‘sir that is actually my own personal property and stealing the ‘Big Government Sucks’ sign or taking it down can get you arrested.’ And that seemed to trigger him like no end because he ends up taking the sign and he runs out the building…”
Rory Walsh of the College Fix has more on what happened next:
Conservative student: man ‘tried to hit me with his vehicle twice’ (VIDEO)
She claims he said to her that her “organization’s views were way off base” and that she should not even have the right to call the police to report him for vandalizing and stealing her signs because of her small government views.
Daviscourt stated that she next saw the man in the parking lot and that he “waited for me in his car and tried to hit me with his vehicle twice as I was walking.” She added he hit another car as he sped away in an apparent attempt to flee the scene.
In a statement to The College Fix on Monday night, Daviscourt offered an update.
“My school has been very vocal about how horrible this event was and have given me their support,” she told The Fix. “They have offered to have campus security escort me to and from class. However they will not let me know the suspect’s name and I am unable to file a restraining order because of this.”
Stephanie Hamill of the Daily Caller interviewed Daviscourt about the incident, and you can watch it all below:
Over the last week, there has been much talk from Democrats who are apparently concerned about people inciting violence through political talk. It would be easier to take them seriously if they ever spoke out against incidents like this one.
