EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Public univ. official confronts 'trespassing' conservatives
- Video from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County shows a university official shutting down a recruitment operation for conservative student group Turning Point USA.
- The official told the activists that if they did not "pack up," he would call the police and report them for “trespassing” on the public campus.
- Before being forced out, a possible university employee attempted to engage the activists in debate, claiming that to fight for both free speech and limited government is contradictory.
Activists recruiting for a conservative student organization were instructed to move by the threat of police force at the University of Maryland Baltimore County in early September because they were not in an “approved” location.
Before Joshua Fox, a field representative for Campus Reform’s parent organization the Leadership Institute, and Turning Point USA recruiter Olivia Talley were shut down by a campus official for not being in the “designated tabling area,” they were approached by a woman who they say appeared to be an employee of the university, although Campus Reform could not independently verify her employment status.
