WATCH: Antifa thug tased, arrested after squirting ‘bleach’ on conservative speaker at YAF event!

A conservative speaker was attacked last night by a thug protester from Antifa during a speech at the University of Missouri – Kansas City.

Michael Knowles, a conservative political columnist for the Daily Wire, was there at the invitation of the conservative group YAF (Young Americans for Freedom).

At some point during the event as protesters were yelling, a man dressed in Antifa attire threw a liquid at Knowles, thought to be bleach, hitting him in the face. Cops quickly restrained the man and arrested him.

Here’s more from University News:

One person was injured and arrested following a protest at an event hosted by Young Americans for Freedom Thursday night.

The event’s speaker, Michael Knowles, a conservative political columnist for the Daily Wire, was giving a speech titled “Men are Not Women.”

According to a statement released on UMKC’s Twitter, “The protest turned disruptive and after several warnings, the disruption persisted.”

The arrested protestor was tackled and tased by police. Others were maced, according to those in attendance.

Protestors originally planned to stage a silent walk-out at the event before heading to the Inclusion Spring Bash at the University Walkway.

After the incident, Knowles tweeted that the protestor tried to throw bleach on him. After speaking with police, Knowles tweeted that it was instead an odorous substance designed to smell like bleach.

UMKC says it will continue to gather facts on the incident and review campus policies and procedures.



Here’s the full video from someone at the event:

Here’s a better video of the cops dealing with the Antifa thug on the ground, having to tase him to bring him into compliance:

Knowles explains what happened from his perspective:

the attacker was a hoaxer who was fine getting charged with assault but wanted to avoid a felony

If he was a gay black liberal Democrat then he wouldn’t have to worry about those pesky felonies either.

To University President –where exactly does this “right to civil protest” come from?
There is a right to peacefully assemble and address grievances to our government.

How did you conflate to to allow a mob veto by heckling and disruption to reach the same status as the right to free speech.

Are you really saying a mob’s right to heckle and disrupt is peaceful assembly and grevivance redress or are you giving these actions full free speech rights.

Exactly. The left also says that when people go to a Trump rally with the intention to yell and scream in people’s faces, that that is a protest too….What it really is, is a disruption and denying other people their American right to assemble and freedom of association.

Yes, they think by yelling that a group is “Racist” [even when they are not like most Trump supporters] that it gives them the OK to attack, dehumanize, and bully that group. The left are the real Brownshirts of today, it’s not the right, it is them.

They aggressively disrupt an otherwise civilized speech, then one of their members violently assaults the speaker, and then the rest of the group starts shouting, “hands up, don’t shoot,” as if they’re the victims, and completely ignoring the fact Michael Brown never put his hands up, never said, “don’t shoot,” but viciously attacked Officer Wilson while the officer was still strapped into his car.

There is no reasoning with insanity, and these antifa thugs are clearly unhinged.

Notice how the woman says “I hope that with your platform you can learn to respect and love everybody” While a guy on her side is literally standing right behind her flipping Knowles off. And then the ‘bleach’ happens.
Then another guy shouts about how they’re “being attacked!!!!” as if cops should just let them throw unknown substances at people and not suffer any consequences.
These people’s self awareness is in the negatives. They remind me of toddlers throwing tantrums after their parents tell them “no”.

P.S.: The fat feminist/lesbian stereotype at the beginning was golden too – shouting in a gruff voice, shaved and dyed hair, belly hanging out of the bottom of her shirt. A living caricature.

The “point” is to disrupt, shout down opposing views, harm people if they can manage to, and most of all, to call attention to themselves. It’s a cancer on America and needs to be treated as such. Maybe the tasering needs to be applied to more sensitive body parts.

This time it wasn’t bleach, but next time… If this isn’t addressed, the next time they could throw acid or some other kind of lethal substance at the speaker. Where are the college officials, to condemn this and call for the students to be respectful of their guests?

DO NOT get yourself into that mindset. It’s extremely dangerous. Just be glad that nothing bad happened this time, and glad that the authorities have the perpetrator in custody. Do not start going down the “What if” rabbithole and putting yourself into a panic over what might happen tomorrow. That’s a breeding ground for paternalistic authority over pre-crime, and that’s anathema to a free society.

If someone throw’s acid tomorrow, so be it. We hope to intervene before they can do harm, and then catch them and prosecute them as well. Any more than that, and you’re coloring outside of the lines of liberty.

Society is raising generations of spoiled, selfish, nincompoops. Out of my eleven children, most of them have done some very hurtful actions toward the family and they are living their lives in rebellion to God. My husband and I have gone through so much because of their bad behavior but that being said, if they behaved the way this group of young people did, I would find myself even more mortified than I have already been…..and that’s saying a lot.

Soros is an enemy of the State actively attempting to overthrow the laws of this land. He has pledged allegiance to a communist foreign power, the EU, yet retains American citizenship.

He and his son (co-conspirator) should be arrested. Tried for treason. Citizenship revoked and thrown in solitary confinement for the rest of their life. The government should use the Patriot Act to protect this nation from enemies, foreign and domestic. George Soros is Enemy #1.

LandscaperLandscaper Being a student myself, I can tell you that many of these students are beyond miserable. They b*tch about everything. They verbally attack others constantly on campus and none of that ever comes to light. They snap their fingers in approval of their socialist master professors, while everyone else seems to sink in their seats.

They are a loud, crazy minority on my campus -but- normals fear them and this is where they get their power. Much of the faculty fears them, too, even though these are the spawn of the socialist faculty. They fear their own. I’d guess most of them are literally unstable at best, but more likely, actually mentally ill.

Once again, I can’t type what I want to… but ANTIFA is a terrorist group and should be physically removed from the premises – if not arrested. Until there are consequences for this sort of animal behavior, these heathen monsters will keep doing it and likely be emboldened. All they want is a video to post on YouTube.
