The mainstream media will drop everything to believe a story without evidence if the victim fits their preferred narrative and the attacker is their preferred villain. However, if roles are reversed and there’s actual footage, you can bet they’ll go quiet as a church mouse.

It happened once again, this time on campus at UC Berkeley.

According to Turning Point USA President Charlie Kirk, a TPUSA member Hayden Williams was recruiting on campus when a thug approached and threatened him. The altercation soon became physical, with the thug advancing as the TPUSA recruiter retreating as he was manhandled by the former.

The thug then got in the Williams’ face threatening him further and calling him a “racist little inbred b*tch. C**t!.” As it looked like the confrontation was over, the thug slugged the recruiter in the face and walked away shouting obscenities.

Here’s the altercation from the angle of the Williams, who was filming the entire thing. He is accused of advocating for violence, which is denied by the recruiter and is soon assaulted by the thug who flips his table over and continuously charges him, threatening to shoot him.

“As I approached the table I could see our TPUSA pins all over the floor, our signs were torn apart, Hayden’s eye was red, and his nose was bleeding,” the student told Campus Reform.

Dan Mogulof, assistant vice chancellor for the Office of Communications and Public Affairs for UC-Berkeley told Campus Reform that he condemns the behavior.

“Let me state in no uncertain terms that this university strongly condemns violence and harassment of any sort, for any reason. That sort of behavior is reprehensible and intolerable,” Mogulof said. “We have, in recent years, spent millions of dollars to ensure that students from across the ideological/political spectrum can safely and successfully promote and discuss their beliefs. Our commitment to freedom of expression and belief is unwavering.”

The University of California Police Department has also sent out a notification to students that they are currently searching for him.

Some students at Berkeley, however, believe the attacker to be a hero.
