Far left student activists at the University of Connecticut were screaming throughout a talk titled, "It is Okay to Be White," that was partially delivered by Lucian Wintrich, D.C. Bureau Chief & White House Correspondent for The Gateway Pundit.
According to Gateway, they chanted, “Go home Nazis!”
They screamed and called him a racist.
Then he drank a glass of white milk, that triggered them further and they
became more aggressive and stole the hard copy of his speech:
Here’s another angle. You can clearly see the lefty stealing Lucian’s speech off the podium:The moment, about half an hour ago, that Gateway Pundit blogger Lucian Wintrich appears to accost a woman during a speech at UConn pic.twitter.com/R4Dd9eY1v4— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) November 29, 2017

The spokeswoman also confirmed that the female who stole the hard copy of Wintrich's speech was not charged.
According to the Chicago Tribune, windows in the area were shattered and UConn police were investigating a smoke bomb that was set off in the building outside the lecture hall.
Approximately 100 students waited outside for Wintrich to be brought out by police. Instead, he was brought out through the back of the hall and placed into a police cruiser, with many students chased after it, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The UConn College Republicans sponsored the event, and the group’s Facebook page said that Wintrich would “discuss identity politics, liberal victimhood, anti-conservative bias and other hot-button issues.”
The College Republicans said Wintrich’s appearance was not organized for or by white supremacists and invited the public to attend and voice their concerns directly.
