Texas College Republicans Blame Student in MAGA Hat for Enduring ANTIFA-Style Assault
After four Texas State University (TSU) students were arrested following the assault of a conservative wearing a MAGA hat on campus Wednesday, the university’s College Republicans organization stood with the violent leftist thugs.
“We are sure… that the person in the hat went to the Quad for a simple reason: creating division and reaping attention from that division,” the TSU College Republicans said in an official statement.
“Unfortunately, the student who caused the altercations today used this sensitive moment to drive division and fear,” the letter added.
The letter ended with a tacit endorsement of leftist protesters and their ANTIFA-style tactics while implying that wearing a MAGA hat is a racist, hate-filled action.
“All people have the right to demonstrate, and Bobcats have the right to demonstrate our solidarity in opposition to abhorrent white supremacy,” the letter concluded.
Video of the incident can be seen here:
The student who is assaulted, who goes by the alias Tyler M. to avoid retribution from leftist terrorists for speaking out, talked to Campus Report about what happened. He went to the public space because he had heard about a conservative biker group holding a protest and leftists planned a counter-protest.
The biker group never showed up, and the leftists moved to a different target. The bullies keyed in on Tyler M. because of his MAGA hat instead.
“Again, none of our conservative people were ever instigating anything,” Tyler M. said to Campus Report. “I can guarantee that. No one was ever yelling or shouting over people. We were all very patient.”
He was attempting to have a civil conversation “when [he] felt someone kind of come up behind [him] and kind of grab [his] hat, lift it up, and try to run away.”
He chased her down and eventually apprehended the thief.
“I only held her [backpack] for a good five seconds…it was never her physically,” Tyler M. said. “As soon as I got out of the crowd, I let go of her bag and I came up beside her and I said, ‘can you please give me back my hat?'”
Like the College Republicans, the Young Democrats of America chapter at TSU stood in solidarity with the attackers:
Making the situation even more embarrassing, the College Republicans keep doubling down on their support of the ANTIFA-style assault that happened on the TSU campus.
The Texas Federation of College Republicans, the Sam Houston State College Republicans, and the Texas Tech College Republicans issued letters lauding the TSU chapter for throwing the young man under the bus.
“Multiple eye witness accounts report that a man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat entered the Texas State Quad and began instigating altercations and arguments,” wrote Decker Reno, the Texas Federation of College Republicans Chairman.
“When an issue reeks of white supremacy and nazism it is our duty as patriots to stand for what’s right regardless of race, religion, creed or party. We stand with the Texas State CRs and we stand with the values of our party,” Reno wrote.
The various letters all reference the Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT), a rival campus organizing group that released a letter in support of the young man who was assaulted. They confirmed the victim was an activist with their group in the letter.
“YCT is fundamentally skeptical of politicians. As reflected in our motto, ‘principles over party’, we stand for ideas. We firmly believe that regardless of how any of our members or our board feel about a given candidate, we acknowledge the rights of all students to freely express themselves,” the letter wrote.
They also called for the College Republicans to retract their statements and issue an apology to the student in their statement.
“If the Texas Federation of College Republicans continues to be silent on whether or not it is acceptable to be a Trump supporter on a college campus, it may behoove TXFCR chapters to reconsider what their statewide affiliation really means and how it aligns with their own values,” the letter concluded.
Shockingly it’s not just establishment student groups siding with the overall trend of political censorship, Texas Tech’s chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas seem to support Orwellian corporate silencing of pro-Trump media voices:
YCT is usually a reliable foil to the establishment line of thinking in the Lone Star State, but it seems that the swamp has infiltrated their ranks as well.
Representatives from the College Republican National Committee, the Texas Federation of College Republicans, the Texas State College Republicans, the Texas Tech College Republicans, and the Young Conservatives of Texas were contacted, but not had responded by the time of publication.
