With political tensions remaining high and a new tragedy occurring nearly every month, President Donald Trump has repeatedly called on the American people to come together in unity and prayer, and expressed his faith that our nation can once again heal our divisions and become whole.
Yet, there are those on the left who appear to want no part of the peaceful unity that Trump and his supporters have sought. They have made their presence known, whether through snarky, hateful remarks on social media or by way of violent physical assaults committed by the likes of groups like antifa.
A shocking report detailing the concerning and potentially violent measures the anti-Trump crowd is pursuing against Trump supporters recently emerged via Campus Reform. The group alerted everyone to the fact that the antifa chapter at the University of California-Berkeley has been stalking, targeting and not-so-subtly threatening the Berkeley College Republicans group.
The report noted that the Berkeley Antifa Twitter account recently posted the following: “BCR meeting right now inside Eureka at 2068 Center St after drinking with Kyle Chapman and Joey Gibson at Fashy’s, I mean, Pappy’s,” followed by another tweet naming names of the BCR members in attendance at the dinner.
Some of our readers may know Kyle Chapman as “Based Stickman,” who rose to fame among the alt-right for donning a helmet, makeshift shield and stick to battle with antifa thugs, as well as Joey Gibson, founder of a peaceful pro-Trump, pro-free speech group known as Patriot Prayer, according to The Daily Caller.
“Conservatives in Berkeley are routinely targeted, harassed, and stalked,” Naweed Tahmas, vice president of the BCR and one of those named in the tweet, told Campus Reform. “Knowing that they have sympathizers within both the city administration and university administration, leftist groups will continue to target conservatives as they know there are no consequences to their actions.”
