STANFORD (KPIX 5) Politics led to tempers flaring on the Stanford campus and one disagreement among students got physical this week.
Campus Republicans were holding an event in support of Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday when other students came up and started tearing up their posters.
The president of the Stanford College Republicans, John Rice-Cameron, also claims he was shoved by a fellow student Melinda Hernandez. The incident was first reported by the Stanford Daily.
Rice-Cameron is the son of Susan Rice, fomer U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama. Last week, Rice made headlines suggesting she might run against Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who cast a deciding vote for to confirm Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice.
Hernandez denied she shoved Rice-Cameron, telling the Stanford Daily she touched Rice-Cameron on the chest after he refused to stop video recording her. Hernandez posted on Twitter that she was issued a citation but not arrested. But the College Republicans said Rice-Cameron will press charges.
Neither was available to speak with KPIX about the incident.
Student Christopher Leboa, says he does not condone violence, but claims campus Republicans are often purposefully provocative, such as leaving chalk messages around campus saying things like build the wall.
Im not saying they were asking for it, but it was not unprovoked, said Leboa. Theyve had signs up here like affirmative action is racist and that climate change doesnt exist all sorts of like so theyll host big signs out here and kind of dare you to come, like, talk to them and then kind of yell at you back.
He says students at Stanford do talk about how to respond to certain messages, as politics across the country continues to get physical.
In a statement on its Facebook page, Stanford College Republicans said the incident showed the violent and totalitarian behavior of the unhinged Stanford left.
Given their close association with the CIA, I don’t know how to take anything coming from Stanford seriously.
None of it is likely to be what it appears.
Bolsheviks being Bolsheviks
Susan Rice’s son is a Republican?
Notice how Republicans/Conservatives can never have a rally or speaker without the Leftist mobs getting violent and trying to break it up. Don’t ever see Republicans doing the same thing. But what do you expect when the Dem “leaders” keep calling for violence. They best be careful, they are close to getting what they are asking for — but not the way they are thinking.
Yes and he looks white.
So having a different opinion means it's okay to assault someone per today's democrat party. Got it!
Christopher Leboa : We have a right to be violent towards them.
Hey dunce Stanford student Christopher Leboa; affirmative action IS racist and climate change is theology.
Apparently critical thinking intellectual honesty is not a requirement for the Stanford student body.
I grew up less than a mile from Stanford. I did not even apply there. I wanted nothing to do with its students or teachers.
