Story continues below the video...
Here are the top five videos:
1. Leftist students protest Charlie Kirk and Lara Trump at NC State
Campus Reform Correspondent Addison Smith talked to student protesters at North Carolina State University who were protesting a Turning Point USA Culture War event that featured Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and Lara Trump.
In addition to attacking Kirk personally, students accused Kirk, Turning Point USA, and its supporters of being racist. When Smith asked for evidence, one protester told him to “go f**k” himself.
2. Students shut down Art Laffer at Binghamton University
A College Republicans event for economist Art Laffer at Binghamton University was shut down within minutes of starting after student protesters occupied the auditorium. The event appeared to get violent with students getting physical and forcing police to get involved.
Police also had to escort the College Republicans out of the auditorium for safety reasons. Two arrests were made, and the College Republican group blamed Antifa for the protest.
3. University of Florida students shout down Don. Jr, heckle Charlie Kirk
Protesters at the University of Florida disrupted an event featuring Donald Trump Jr. and former Fox News commentator Kimberly Guilfoyle. While UF claimed students showed “civility” at the event, video captured by Campus Reform shows students trying to shout over Trump Jr. during his speech.
Additionally, before the event, Kirk was heckled by student protesters who chanted, “f**k you Charlie.”
4. Violence erupts at Berkeley outside Ann Coulter event
Hundreds of protesters showed up at the University of California-Berkeley to protest a speech by conservative commentator Ann Coulter. According to local police, several masked individuals were arrested.
Inside the venue, a protester was also escorted out by police as they held up their middle fingers toward the stage.
5. Students march with Jane Fonda to protest fossil fuel investments
Last fall, students and leftist activists marched weekly in downtown Washington D.C. to protest climate change.
Campus Reform went to one of the marches, which was led by Jane Fonda, to interview protesters who shut down traffic outside of major banks to protest investments in fossil fuels.
Students called for banks to divest from fossil fuels, but defended their own personal use of bank accounts at these banks.
“On a personal level, since we are all subjects in the capitalist system, it’s extremely difficult for an individual...to completely avoid the system,” a student claimed.
