While the Milo event at CU last night was largely peaceful an undercurrent of potential violence was simmering just below the surface and cowardice of liberalism was evident everywhere, especially in the face of this leftist disrupter of civil debate.
This coward pushed his way into the middle of a passionate but peaceful discussion of economics and women’s rights between liberal protesters and a gay advocate of capitalism and tried to provoke conflict. Calling the man waving a gay rainbow flag a “Nazi” he then exhorted the crowd to “move forward” and began not so subtly pushing those he disagreed with out of the crowd while proudly displaying his utter lack of tolerance for reasoned debate. He tried to disguise his masked forcible interference with free speech by turning away and pushing with his back, but the video shows what happened.
When his bandanna mask was pulled down did he proudly show his face like many people, including the gay man he was abusing? No, he and his cohorts tried to hide their faces because they are all cowards who are unwilling to stand behind their beliefs and be identified.
There is probable cause that this person and those conspiring with him violated 18 U.S.C. 241, conspiracy against rights, because they went in disguise in a public place with the obvious intent to physically prevent or hinder the free exercise and enjoyment of the right to peaceably assemble and engage in free speech on the part of all those he interrupted with his violence. He should be tracked down, arrested and tried accordingly.
The full text of the statue is below. Judge for yourselves:
18 U.S.C. 241 Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or
If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—
They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
