Conservative Students Detained for Allegedly ‘Aggravating’ Minority Student Groups During Protest
“created an unsafe environment”
It looks like what happened here is that the minority groups called for defunding campus police, the conservative student groups protested the proposal, and the police detained the conservative students. Does that make any sense?

Protesting conservative students detained for ‘aggravating’ minority student groups
Several individuals from the Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Long Beach chapters of Turning Point USA were detained by campus cops after allegedly “aggravating” members of two minority student organizations.
According to the Daily Forty-Niner, the TPUSA students “surrounded the entrance” to the CSULB Latinx and Black Resource Center to voice their opposition to the Students for Quality Education’s advocacy for defunding the campus police.
Cal State Fullerton TPUSA President Marcos Zelada said he and his fellow protesters were “practicing their freedom of speech” against the defunding initiative.
Zelada, who carried a sign which read “Defunding never works, bozos,” added “This was an impromptu counter to the dangerous ideas of defunding the police, which is what [Students for Quality Education] is trying to do on campus.”
Students from the Students for Quality Education meeting eventually went out to “confront” the TPUSA demonstrators, leading the latter to call the police.
In a joint statement posted to Instagram, members of the Black Student Union, La FUERZA and Students for Quality Education said the TPUSA members “created an unsafe environment” for those affiliated with the three groups, and they “requested” the university administration “respond appropriately to [TPUSA’s] attack.”
The statement went on to call TPUSA a “known alt-right, racist, and fascist group funded by White Supremacists [sic] donors and leaders” and said TPUSA’s call to the cops was to “weaponize” the police.
“When Campus Police [sic] arrived, they made it clear who they saw as a threat, our Black and Brown students,” the minority coalition’s statement said. “Right away we were pushed back by Campus Police and told to ‘calm down.’ This interaction highlights the systemic biases of Campus Police, and the unfair treatment our Black and Brown students faced.”

We do not have to attend these colleges.
We do not have to send our children to these colleges.
I never realized mental illness was so wide spread at America’s universities. Is it now considered a communicable disease?
“This interaction highlights the systemic biases of Campus Police, and the unfair treatment our Black and Brown students faced.”
And yet the other ones were the ONLY ones detained?
This doesn’t track.
The Left’s grasp of reality is tenuous, at best.
The only unsafe conditions in any protest are those brought about by the leftists like pantifa and BLM.
True, but, we know who the police will detain.
This entire assumption that “safety” is some kind of constitutional right that overrides everybody else’s actual constitutional rights needs to be stomped into the subsoil with jackboots.
That’s the fundamental issue really… your ‘right’ to something cannot actually be a ‘right’ if it infringes upon someone else’s rights.
And besides, isn’t ‘aggravating’ just another way of saying ‘hurting the feelings of?’
Sticks and Stones, motherf*ckers. Sticks and Stones.
“When Campus Police [sic] arrived, they made it clear who they saw as a threat, our Black and Brown students,” the minority coalition’s statement said.
That’s because you were.
The self-delusion (and gaslighting) these people demonstrate is enough to make you want to just put a wall up around certain portions of America and let them go their own way.
I think back to a movie called Doomsday with Rhona Mitra and Malcom McDowell.
UK put up a wall and let the crazies on the other side do wtf they want. It devolved quickly.
