More Tolerance From The Left: Activists Shut Down College Campus Event, Threaten To Kill Organizer

Differing opinions, at one point in our society, brought about healthy discussion and understanding of one’s views. Today, not so much. Anger and violence tend to erupt at the slightest hint of opposing views.

A fresh example of this would be in Texas. Kelly Neidert, the organizer of an event at the University of North Texas, was forced to hide in a janitorial closet after the event was disrupted by protesters.

Neidert, a member of the Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) chapter at the University of North Texas (UNT), described being forced to take refuge in a janitorial closet after left-wing protesters forced an early end to an appearance by Jeff Younger, a Republican candidate for a seat in the Texas House of Representatives. Younger’s child, James, was the subject of a custody battle between Younger and his ex-wife, who claimed James was transgender.

“I was forced to hide in a janitor closet with the lights off while Antifa searched for me,” Neidert posted on Twitter. The incident was the latest in a series of harassment, which included a petition demanding her expulsion and death threats.

“We were told that me and Jeff were the primary targets” during a briefing from UNT campus police, Neidert told the Daily Caller News Foundation, saying the disruption came from Antifa. Younger also told the DCNF that UNT police mentioned Antifa during a briefing prior to the event.

UNT Anonymous, a left-wing group, posted instructions in a thread on Twitter on Feb. 23, the day the YCT event was originally scheduled but was rescheduled due to weather.

“Wear a plain mask, preferably black. Wear black non-descript clothing, cover your face and identifiable markings such as tattoos, birthmarks,” the group said in one post.

Younger told the DCNF that UNT campus police asked if he had a personal protection detail prior to the event where he was slated to speak on his agenda as a candidate for the Texas House of Representatives, including banning “transgender child abuse,” “border security” and ensuring “fair elections,” according to his campaign website.

UNT campus police allowed 80 people into the event, but many who entered merely pounded tables and tried to keep Younger from speaking, according to multiple sources.

“A lady stood right next to me, screaming in my ear,” Younger told the DCNF, however a professor “cloaked in the transgender flag” urged the protestors to let Younger speak.

Both Neidert and Younger said that police at UNT had a plan to evacuate them in case of a threat of violence at the event. Roughly 45 minutes into the event, the police decided to execute that plan, Neidert told the DCNF.

Neidert described being separated from Younger during the evacuation and being forced to flee from a crowd of at least 150 people.

“They turned me around and they ran me back to the stairwell and we ran to the third floor of the building and as we were getting up there, we could hear downstairs people were getting into the building,” Neidert told the DCNF, saying that she took refuge in a janitorial closet with an officer. They were later able to escape from the building when the protesters went upstairs, Neidert told the DCNF.

Prior to the event, Neidert received numerous threats via direct messages, she told the DCNF.

“Black clad protestors swarmed outside an event at the University of North Texas featuring Jeff Younger, the father of a child at the center of national controversy over transitioning children,” according to footage tweeted by Mary Margaret Olohan, a Daily Wire reporter.
