BLM Radicals Try To Shutdown Black Conservative’s Event

Retired Lt. Col. Allen West reflected on needing a police escort to exit a speaking event at the University of Buffalo after Black Lives Matter activists shut it down, noting that he remembers an earlier time when he would have needed an escort on a college campus.

West was speaking at an event sponsored by the University of Buffalo’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter Thursday in New York when a black female student scolded him for “ignoring the struggle of your own people” and validating conservative views of people she referred to as “oppressors.”

The former Republican Florida congressman’s speech was titled “America is Not Racist.” West, who is black, was most recently the chairman of the Texas Republican Party and lost in the Republican primary in this year’s election to be Texas governor.

Students shouted popular BLM slogans, including “No Justice, No Peace” and “Say it loud, I’m black and I’m proud” as West was flanked by police officers while exiting the building.

“They are radical,” West told Fox News. “I remember the days when black students had to be escorted on to college campuses, but now, because of radical militant black students, I have to be escorted out. There’s something that has to change.”

“A college and university environment is supposed to be free and open sharing of thoughts, perspectives, and ideas, but the progressive socialist Left, by way of fear, intimidation, coercion, and ultimately violence — this is how they suppress any other thoughts, free speech,” West continued. “We cannot have that happen here in the United States of America.”

Following the event, the University of Buffalo issued a statement disapproving of the way West’s speech was shut down.

“All members of the campus community and invited guests have a right to peacefully express their views and opinions, regardless of whether others may disagree,” the University of Buffalo said. “This includes the right of individuals to oppose the views or opinions of others but not in such a way as to limit or prevent the speaker’s freedom of expression or interfere with university operations.”

  1. PAID THUGS, NO DOUBT! WE MUST REMEMBER, AS THE LATEST NEWS HAS TOLD US, THAT THE “BLM ORGANIZATION” IS A CRIMINALS ENTERPRISE, A FEW AT THE TOP USE TO FILL THEIR PERSONAL PURSES AND TO BUY MILLION$ MANSIONS….THEY ALSO SHOULD BE KNOWN AS A HOME-GROWN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION BENT ON DESTROYING OUR BELOVED AMERICA USING THE FALSE PREMISE OF “JUSTICE”!

    • Absolutely right. BLM is made up of domestic terrorist punks. The University should have thrown them out of the building.

      • Many of these BLM advocates just don’t want to leave the Plantation. What are they afraid of? Ben Carson M.D. was called an uncle Tom because of his success. I don’t get it not wanting to make a better life for ones self.

    • The whole group is crooked, people who follow them and stir up trouble are nothing but Soros funded domestic terrorists!! I’ll bet a majority of them weren’t even students!! Where were the campus police, why didn’t they force BLM off campus??? Maybe its high time they get a taste of their own medicine!!!
      BLM, THE NEW KLAN, they are the racists!!!

  2. Freedom of speech, Freedom of speech, unless WE DON’T LIKE IT …
    Just like the colleges of today if we don’t like it we will stop you but don’t try to stop us …

  3. Quote: “Following the event, the University of Buffalo issued a statement disapproving of the way West’s speech was shut down.” That is real nice now take action – expel those students who shut down the event and those who are not associated with the university should be charged with tresspassing. Charge all of them with disorderly conduct.

  4. Unfortunately, just like allegations against a Democrat for illegal actions, all talk no action. There are no consequences to this crap or to the individuals doing these things. If it were opposite, boy, wouldn’t there be an outcry from our liberal media. USA has become a disgrace and again, countries are laughing at us just like when obama was in office. Time to take control of our country. If uoi don’t like the USA leave— they know they can’t live anywhere else & get away with this crazy. But, hey, blavks are oppressed- yeah right

    • The whole group is crooked, people who follow them and stir up trouble are nothing but Soros funded domestic terrorists!! I’ll bet a majority of them weren’t even students!! Where were the campus police, why didn’t they force BLM off campus??? Maybe its high time they get a taste of their own medicine!!!
      BLM, THE NEW KLAN, they are the racists!!!

  5. What would be wrong with the police running the disruptors off? They LET them win. Another
    Police riot” like at the democrat convention was highly in order.

    We are in the mess we are in today because we let things like then BLM and LBQRST alphabets have their way.- Remember all that is necessary for evil to triumph is to have good men do nothing. It’s ever worse when the police remove there very guy that the snotballs wanted to shut down.

    Somebody better for a set before its too late. ,,,, Let’s start disrupting BLM gatherings if that what it takes. If it’s war they want let it begin now. ,,,, Enough is enough

  6. Shudda shot and killed every single one of those college idgets and others not allowing a protector of their rights. Shoot to kill!

  7. Well the real idiots are now trying to control and tell all the others what to do,only their opinion matters or what they say nothing else matters to them.We must call upon God to leads us and not satin.

  8. The colleges allowed this nonsense in the past and now they are coming out with statements against shutting down speech you don’t like, what a crock of sh*t, talk about a statement just to cover your a$$. As far as action being taken against these kids that will never happen. All this blm crap has accomplished is turning people that were never racists into racists. Watching the bullying, burning and looting stores, hurting people and crying racism for everything has changed me. In the end I believe this has hurt their cause not help it. I’d be curious to know if these same students who shouted down Col West from speaking will do the same if blm goes to their college, you know the blm that took all the money and bought themselves million dollar houses, cars and whatever else they wanted while giving none to them. My guess is college NO and college hasn’t made them any smarter.
