Leftist Mob Attacks Conservative Students Attempting to Promote Political Club
Footage of the incident was caught on camera and has since gone viral across social media
A crowd of leftist protesters targeted and harassed two conservative students who were trying to promote their club on the campus of Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York.
Footage of the incident was caught on camera and has since gone viral across social media.
The incident took place Wednesday when the two students attempted to advertise and recruit for their university chapter of Turning Point USA, according to Campus Reform.
President of the university's Turning Point USA chapter, Lacey Kestecher, student John Lizak, and Taylor Cisinski - a Turning Point USA regional manager, were on campus for the event when the leftist's protesters showed up.
According to reports, the demonstration grew from "5 [to] 10 [to] 20, then everybody was there."
Kestecher described how the crowd exploded in size, before pulling out her phone to document the harassment.
She explained that a male student got close enough to see her anxiety.
"Why are you shaking?" he spat.
"You're a f***ing p***y."
Cisinski described the protest was the "craziest thing I've ever been through in all [my] time [working for Turning Point USA]."

"The most crazy experience I've ever dealt with," she added.
The leftist protesters got so enraged that police were eventually called to the scene to maintain order.
But later protesters reportedly turned on responding officers, shouting "no justice, no peace, no racist police."
Kestecher said that authorities advised her against traveling through campus alone.
“The police said to me yesterday when I was leaving, 'If you're going to walk around, don't go through the middle of campus … [and] have somebody with you at all times,'" she said.
Kestecher admitted she no longer feels safe on campus anymore.
“I don't feel safe at all," she admitted.
“If I'm gonna walk, I have to have a guy with me. … If I need to go out, I need to text somebody to be with me at all times," she said.
"Even walking certain floors on the building, I'm careful because some of the people who are just insane and unhinged live on the lower levels, and I don't know what to expect from them," she added.
"I do not feel safe at all on this campus right now."
But Kestecher refuses to bow out of campus politics.
“The more that they push back on me, the more I'm going to keep pushing forward," she vowed.
