UC Davis Chancellor ‘Deeply Disappointed’ by MILO Protesters


UC Davis Interim Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter condemned the protesters at MILO and Martin Shkreli’s event on campus Friday, which had to be shut down after increasing violence and a police arrest.

“After consulting with UC Davis Police Department and UC Davis Student Affairs officials, the Davis College Republicans canceled tonight’s event featuring Breitbart columnist Milo Yiannopoulos,” explained UC Davis in an official blog post on their website. “The decision was made at about 7:00 pm, 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the event, after a large number of protesters blocked access to the venue, and it was determined that it was no longer feasible to continue with the event safely.”

“I am deeply disappointed with the events of this evening,” proclaimed Hexter, who was appointed chancellor last year. “Our community is founded on principles of respect for all views, even those that we personally find repellent. As I have stated repeatedly, a university is at its best when it listens to and critically engages opposing views, especially ones that many of us find upsetting or even offensive.”

During the lead-up to the show, protesters became increasingly violent, with one ABC10 photographer being attacked with hot coffee outside of the venue.

  1. I am a former aggie. When I went there things were a lot different. The protest for the first Iraq war was about 40 people chanting for an hour. Not body cared so they went home. I worked for the City PD. There was a pro abortion protest that was going to happen. The organizers promised hundreds of arrests because they were going to stir some shit. I got called into to process the arrests, 20 people showed up, nobody cared so they went home. Things have changed, thats why I don’t give them my money anymore.

  2. If he was serious and it was a student arrested he’d expel the offender to send a lesson to the student body. He’s not though. I suppose we should be happy he wasn’t with the protesters.

  3. Once again – how come there is never a security guard with with a can of pepper spray around when you need one?

  4. It is far past time for the authorities to disrupt, arrest, and remove these special little snowflakes, cowards and petulant babies that the protesters are. I would condone right-leaning people who are having their rights repressed by these mindless little commie pissants to take matters into their own hands, but that is exactly what the left wants. When the left gets their ass kicked, the screams of “fascist” and “all the other “ists” and “phobes” will ring endlessly.

    I’m sick of ’em. I hope they all die of the screaming shits.
