VIDEO: Crazed Leftist Attacks College Republicans at UC Santa Cruz, Spits on American Flag

Breitbart News reported on a video of a leftist at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), getting into a fight with UCSC College Republicans and free speech activist Hayden Williams.

Shortly after, the deranged leftist was seen spitting on an American flag, which fell on the ground during the attack.

Free speech activist Hayden Williams, who was the victim of a leftist assault at UC Berkeley while assisting Turning Point USA recruit conservative students last year, posted a video on Twitter on February 13, 2020. The video shows the individual attacking the peaceful College Republican activists.

A College Republicans member told Breitbart that the individual being filmed — a UCSC student — is seen fighting conservative activists, in addition to ripping off the College Republicans’ banner, and spitting on an American below.

In the video, the individual — who a College Republicans member told Breitbart News is a student at UCSC — is seen getting into a physical altercation with conservative activists, as well as tearing down the College Republicans’ banner, and spitting on an American flag.

“Yeah buddy, I think this guy’s trying to assault me,” the leftist individual gloated, as he was ripping a Trump campaign flag out of Williams’ hands, which turned into a fight that had Williams falling to the ground.

The leftist finished the physical altercation by spitting on an American flag, after taking down a banner, which read, “College Republicans at UCSC.”

“Assaulting individuals and students standing up for their rights has become commonplace on college campuses in this country,” said Williams to Breitbart.

“In a place like UC Santa Cruz, I do not expect justice or recourse from law enforcement, or disciplinary action to be taken by the school,” Williams continued. “It saddens me that this is the state of the nation and I hope we can change it for the better.”

The school’s College Republicans chapter president Dylan Temple explained that his group was outside tabling to promote their event later in the day, which had Williams as a guest speaker.

“To me, the American flag has always represented tolerance, diversity and welcoming people from all over the world to our amazing nation, a nation of great opportunity,” Temple said.

“I will continue to stand with the flag and American values despite the hostile culture of UC Santa Cruz,” he continued.

A UCSC spokesperson commented on this incident in the following statement:

Campus officials are aware of an incident that occurred between students on the afternoon of Feb. 7, as members of the UC Santa Cruz College Republicans were tabling near the entrance to Quarry Plaza. UC Santa Cruz police are investigating and hope to have the investigation completed soon.

UC Santa Cruz is committed to ensuring that all members of our campus community are able to exercise their constitutionally protected rights of free expression, speech, and assembly, and that they are able to do so in a safe environment. Free speech is uniquely important to a university, as it allows for the open exchange of ideas integral to our fundamental missions.

Our campus also champions Principles of Community. Among these principles are the belief that our diversity — in every form — makes us stronger, and that the free exchange of ideas requires mutual respect for our differences. We hold steadfast to these principles.
