Breitbart News reports that a group of liberal students launched an attack on a Turning Point USA event that was held at the University of New Mexico on Thursday.

The video shows the leftist students trying to force their way into the campus building where the Turning Point USA event is taking place. As the leftists were doing so, they could be shouting such things as “f*** Turning Point” and “shut it down.”
Campus police were on hand, but they, alone, were not enough to keep the mob of students under control. Eventually, state police had to be called in.
Tomi Lahren was one of the speakers at the event, and she posted a video afterward explaining what happened.
It turned violent. They started pushing the officers that were guarding the door, trying to bust in the door . . . Then at one point, they almost made it through the door . . . Not nearly enough officers were present. I don’t think anybody knew it was going to be this bad. But then someone pulled the fire alarm. Alarms were going off everywhere. We’re all basically barricaded in this room, can’t leave. I was escorted away, for my safety, by officers.
Lahren also went on to criticize the University of Mexico for not doing more to protect students and their guests.
“Never mind me, you do have your tuition-paying students that were in that room to listen to a speaker, and they were in danger,” Lahren said. “We were all in danger.”
It remains to be seen whether the leftist students will be held accountable for their actions. As Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk put it, “when you damage property, when you try and barge through a door blocked by police officers, when you threaten violence against our TPUSA students and speaker, you’re not a protester, you’re a criminal and you should be arrested.”
