Students Disrupt Turning Point USA Meeting at a Missouri High School

Students Disrupt Turning Point USA Meeting at a Missouri High School

The protesters even allegedly smashed a glass table, but the principal didn’t even mention the behavior of the protesters in a message to parents.

Student protesters crash Turning Point USA meeting at Missouri high school

When students at a Missouri high school got together to discuss starting a chapter of the conservative organization Turning Point USA, they were met by protesting peers who jeered them and ended up shattering a glass table.

According to The Kansas City Star, when the politically conservative students met in the Lee’s Summit West High School library on Tuesday, “many [other] students filled the library to protest, while hundreds more protested outside in the courtyard.”

The demonstrators, who held LGBTQ flags and Black Lives Matter signs, said they were “worried” about having TPUSA at their school because it “espouses racist and anti-LGBTQ concepts.”

The TPUSA meeting had to end prematurely as the situation “grew heated,” which included a protester flipping over and destroying that glass table (pictured). A district spokesperson said the table incident was a “poor decision of an individual as the meeting was wrapping up,” and was not “part of a protest plan.”

The district also said it is “processing the incident in accordance with district discipline policy” and that “students returned to class peacefully and there was no further disruption to the school day.”

TPUSA noted on its website that Lee’s Summit West Principal Chad Hertzog’s message to parents about the incident made “no mention of the violence, unprofessionalism, or intimidation from left wing students”

“A district spokesperson said the table incident was a “poor decision of an individual as the meeting was wrapping up,” and was not “part of a protest plan.”

I can’t decide whether this is the Hillary Defense (“she did it because it benefited her, not deliberately to break the law against it”), the Ilhan Defense (“somebody somewhere did something, so just move on”), or the Chewbacca Defense (“nothing matters, just decide in my favor”).

If it had been the Muslim Friendship Society meeting in the library, the district would be all over it. There would be tv news trucks outside for days, candlelight vigils, a mural painted in the street about tolerance, and a native American spirit dance to summon the angels of peace. Then a group of students would march to the principals office and demand new diversity requirements for all students.
