Tomi Lahren was able to give her speech but not without incident.

Protests break out on UNLV campus before Tomi Lahren speech
In the latest episode of Fox Nation’s “No Interruption,” Tomi Lahren traveled to her alma mater to speak with conservative students about the struggles they face on campus, but some UNLV students took issue with her visit.
“I know some of you probably love me and some of you probably hate me,” Lahren said during the October speech on campus titled “Stay Triggered.”
“Couldn’t care less either way. To be honest with you, you’re here. It doesn’t matter to me if you don’t like me or if you do like me. That’s what free speech is all about. That’s what the people outside are chanting on, and someone fought and died for their freedom to do that,” she said.
Tomi’s speech drew an auditorium of supporters — but a group of protestors who opposed the Fox Nation host’s visit assembled outside with signs, expressing anger over her return to campus.
Inside, Lahren spoke to supporters about the current political climate, seeming unphased by the protests behind the door.
“As misguided as I think it is, it’s the American way of life that we’re able to [express ourselves] and I’m sure there are people in this room, if not their family members, who have fought and died for that,” Lahren said.
“I believe we’re in a political climate where people are actively looking for ways to be offended by everything,” she continued, “and that’s not just liberals. It’s conservative to some extent, too. But I see it far more on the Left….people are looking for things to be angry about…looking for ways to divide each other into certain groups based on who they voted for.”
