Michael Knowles of the Daily Wire gave a speech at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) this week. Student protesters turned the event into a circus, and a masked figure even attempted to throw liquid, initially believed to be bleach, onto Knowles and was arrested.

The Daily Wire describes the scene:

WATCH: Daily Wire’s Knowles Sprayed With Bleach-Like Substance By SJW Protester During Speech At University of Missouri-KC

Speaking at the University of Missouri-Kansas City on Thursday night, The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles was attacked by a masked protester who used a super soaker to fire liquid at him that appeared to be glitter-colored bleach; police later said that the liquid merely smelled like bleach. Knowles’ speech was titled simply “Men Are Not Women.”

Hecklers consistently interrupted Knowles and yelled at him, prompting Knowles to respond, “I know, you’re so oppressed, my dears. I know, life is so hard for you. You have to live in the richest, most equitable, most just country in the history of the world. You have to get a college education; you have to voluntarily go to lectures; it’s so awful. I can’t imagine.”…

Then all hell broke loose, as the protester tried to squirt what appeared to be bleach at Knowles.

Knowles told The Daily Wire, “The topic of my lecture was ‘Men Are Not Women.’ Apparently this plain fact was so offensive to some leftist thugs that one of them decided to shoot me in the face and side with a super soaker full of what appeared to be glitter-colored bleach. At first I just thought it was paint because of the color and smell. I was later told it was bleach; police now say that the substance merely smelled like bleach. This is what conservatives on campus are up against.

Knowles appeared on the Tucker Carlson show last night to discuss the situation:

This could have been a lot worse. What if the liquid had been a dangerous substance?
