Liberal CA Student Physically Attacks College Republican President

Yet another unhinged liberal has physically attacked a Republican, this time on the campus of California’s Stanford University, according to reports.

The physical altercation occurred at Stanford University on Tuesday, as a female leftist was arrested for battery for getting in the face of a College Republican and then shoving him in the chest, The Blaze reports.

According to campus police, John Rice-Cameron said fellow student Melinda Hernandez “shoved him in the chest with her hand during a verbal disagreement” at tabling event in support of Kavanaugh’s recent Supreme Court confirmation, the Stanford Daily reported.

Rice-Cameron added to the paper that Hernandez “got in my face and proceeded to hit me in the chest area and push me back forcefully” and that “nobody should be assaulted on campus, under any circumstances.”

He also told the College Fix that Hernandez shoved him after he shot video of her trying to vandalize a sign: “She comes up and puts her hand on the sign as if she’s going to rip it up, so I take out my phone and record her, and she said, ‘Why the f*** are you recording me?’ In an attempt to defuse the situation, I put the phone away.”

A post on the Stanford College Republicans Facebook page said its members “experienced the violent and totalitarian behavior of the unhinged Stanford left.”

The attacker claimed that she only cares about “peace,” but witnesses contradicted her lie noting that she was the aggressor.

An anonymous eyewitness told the Daily that Hernandez was “angry [and] upset” and characterized her demeanor toward Rice-Cameron as combative: “She kept getting in his face, louder and louder — she walked straight towards him and invaded his personal space and definitely put her hands on him,” the unnamed witness added to the paper.

A College Republican member who declined to be named told the Daily that while Hernandez pushed Rice-Cameron, it wasn’t a “hard push,” noting that the group’s president didn’t hit the ground.

Liberal students also brazenly vandalized the Republican display.
