Last week, I wrote an article titled “VICTORY: In the Aftermath of Egregious Bias, UC Berkeley Had to Pay $70,000 to Conservative Groups.”
Some of you told me that was no victory at all.
Well, how about this one?
On February 19, Hayden Williams — a field rep for the conservative Leadership Institute — was on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley to recruit. Along the way, he was shoved, called a racist, and punched in the face by an angry moron.
The ordeal was caught on video.
Good news: The school reports the angry moron’s identity has been confirmed.
Student newspaper The Daily Californian, ladies and gentlemen:
“One week after the incident that received national backlash, the campus has concluded its investigation of the incident,” said campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.
It gets better:
Based on the results of that investigation, the department is seeking a felony warrant from the Alameda County District Attorney for the identified suspect.
If the warrant is granted, Dan explained, the UCPD will “immediately arrest” Angry Moron.
Victim Hayden had been recruiting for Turning Point USA. While sitting at a table with signs such as “This is MAGA Country” and “Hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” Angry Moron started an argument. Angry Moron began to shove him, ultimately threatening to shoot him. A witness videoed AM sucker-punching Hayden.
Watch the unbelievable video below (WARNING: Language). And hopefully, you can find some solace in the fact that AM has been identified and will — barring breathtakingly bizarre idiocy — be arrested.
Though — I must admit — the Berkeley campus is no stranger to breathtakingly bizarre idiocy.

My friend, Hayden, wants to thank all of you for the love and support. He’s giving you a wink, and wanted to let you know you’ll be hearing from him soon! pic.twitter.com/6kPmFZgQgz
