Anti-Frat Protests at U. Iowa Cause $200,000 in Damage and Leave Some Students Homeless

Anti-Frat Protests at U. Iowa Cause $200,000 in Damage and Leave Some Students Homeless

“damaged windows, landscaping, a permanent gas grill, four doors and frames”

Student activists caused this, and because they are of the left, they will probably get away with it too.

The College Fix reports:

Anti-frat protests caused $200K+ in damage, left 28 students temporarily homeless

Protests against the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity at University of Iowa caused more than $200,000 in damages and left 28 students without permanent housing according to public documents.

The Gazette, a local paper, filed public record requests for information about the August and September protests against the fraternity, also known as FIJI.

Student activists circulated a petition and led protests against FIJI after news broke that two members allegedly sexually assaulted someone in September 2020. The students are no longer in the fraternity, according to The Daily Iowan. A student filed a lawsuit against the two students, though the campus paper did not link to a copy of it. The investigation is ongoing.

The protests led to broken windows, doors and frames.

The Gazette reported:

Damage to the FIJI house from the raucous protests of more than 1,000 will require repair to 120-plus damaged windows, landscaping, a permanent gas grill, four doors and frames ‘at a cost of over $200,000,’ according to an Oct. 15 email from FIJI Assistant Executive Director Todd Rotgers.

The damage made the house unlivable.

“Given space limitations at the Iowa House Hotel — costing $200 a night on Fridays and Saturdays and $75 to $95 Sunday through Thursday — FIJI also had to book rooms in the Hilton Garden Inn and the Hampton Inn in Iowa City,” the Gazette said.

Cool, next are they going to protest when football or basketball players sexually assault someone?

Did they film this riot so the students involved can be expelled?
