Protesters nearly derail Dave Rubin speech at UNH
- Protesters nearly succeeded in shutting down a presentation about free speech and cultural appropriation at the University of New Hampshire Tuesday night.
- Campus police moved the event to a different venue after protesters threatened to blockade the entrance, but then capped attendance at 160 and refused to admit a crowd of about 200 additional students.
- The school's TPUSA chapter, which hosted the event, is demanding an explanation from UNH, alleging that school officials did nothing to stop the protesters from harassing attendees.
Activists at the University of New Hampshire attempted to derail a lecture by journalist Dave Rubin on Tuesday by blockading and disrupting the student-organized event.
The event was hosted by the University of New Hampshire’s Turning Point USA chapter and caused an uproar among liberal students who vowed to protest at the venue. The talk was originally slated to be a panel featuring two other Turning Point speakers, including the group’s founder Charlie Kirk, but they had to cancel their appearances due to “unforeseen travel complications.”
