A conservative speaker who turned into assaulted via a protester Thursday at the same time as speaking approximately the differences among males and females says his attack was a “warning shot” by using Leftists in opposition to conservatives and lambasted the college for allowing “political violence to fester on campus.”
“I awoke this morning looking forward to an apology for being assaulted at some stage in a lecture that i was invited to offer on the college of Missouri. alternatively, i used to be smeared baselessly as a bigot,” Michael Knowles stated on “Tucker Carlson this night” Friday.
“They referred to my declare that guys are not women as an intense perspective and they tacitly are allowing political violence to fester on campus.”
The event, sponsored by using the conservative younger america’s foundation, took place at the college of Missouri-Kansas city and featured a speech titled “men are not girls” earlier than a protester sprayed an unknown substance on Knowles prompting the protester’s arrest.
Friday, Chancellor C. Mauli Agrawal praised Knowles protesters, but condemned the protester who “crossed a line” and condemned Knowles himself.
At least the University of Missouri-Kansas City apologized for the physical assault and relentless shouting I endured last night as an invited speaker on campus.— Michael Knowles (@michaeljknowles) 12 Nisan 2019
JUST KIDDING! The Chancellor of the university just sent out an email baselessly smearing me as a bigot. pic.twitter.com/tUPEE0FCW9
“A pupil group introduced a speaker to campus – a speaker whose professed reviews do no longer align with our dedication to diversity and inclusion and our aim of providing a welcoming environment to all people, mainly to our LGBT community,” Agrawal wrote in a announcement.
Knowles referred to as the chancellor “a disgrace” and referred to as the protesters reaction “fascism.”
“This changed into a caution shot to conservatives on faculties across the country that in case you don’t shut up. if you do not kowtow to leftist orthodoxy you will be bullied. you will be shouted down. you will be physically intimidated and perhaps subsequent time that substance might be a little more dangerous, a little extra toxic,” Knowles informed Carlson.
“it is fascism as clear as fascism may be.”
