It could easily be argued that, having become little more than liberal indoctrination centers, college campuses have evolved into the most intolerant places in America.
Intolerance being a product of the poorly informed, dare we say ignorant, lemmings on the left.
The latest example of this was seen at Ohio University when Kaitlin Bennett showed up to conduct man-on-the-street interviews Monday as part of her “Liberty Hangout” endeavor.
(**Warning for language.)
This is what happens when a Conservative woman named Kaitlin Bennett goes to Ohio University. This what happens when you send your children off the the majority of colleges in this country. They become a bunch of drooling, pitch fork wielding lunatics.pic.twitter.com/yqrZWFXPXF

Bennett, known as the Kent State Gun Girl, for graduation photos of her posing with an AR-10 rifle, is not averse to taking risks.
She is also an outspoken supporter of the Second Amendment and gun rights, and a supporter of President Donald Trump.

And while she is seen as a controversial figure for her boldness, the aforementioned attributes are all it takes to be ostracized and even attacked by a crazed liberal mob of hundreds, as Bennett and talk radio host Joel Patrick, aka the “Black Redneck,” would be.
In full view of the university police, who apparently opted to sit it out, according to a video Bennett shared on Twitter.
“This is what happens when a Trump supporter goes to a college campus. Leftists at
@ohiou started a riot when @Joelpatrick1776 and I showed up, and the @oupolice
let it happen. I think @realDonaldTrump should strip funding from universities like this that harbor terrorists,” Bennett tweeted.

Here are some angles of the near riot* shared on Twitter by some in the crowd, many of whom celebrated intolerance that rose to the level of fascism — while calling Bennett a fascist!

Bennett was accompanied by a towering bodyguard, and media accounts say she was run off campus. But don’t worry, this outrageous behavior did not rise to the level of a riot — at least, not according to campus police looking on.
In a statement, Ohio University Police assured all that the unruly behavior — see assault — did not include any violence.
“Contrary to allegations circulating on social media, the incident did not rise to the level of a riot,” the release stated. “There was strong language, and allegations that some unknown person(s) in the crowd splashed water, but there were no reported injuries or violence, and no one was arrested during the event.”
The department also justified its inaction by saying because they weren’t notified in advance that Bennett was going to walk onto campus and interview people, they did not have the opportunity “to plan staffing levels.”

In another tweet, Bennett let it be known that she will be back, and will be packing heat next time — as is her legal right.
“I will absolutely be returning to @ohiou’s campus again, and next time I’ll bring an army of gun owners for an open carry walk through campus. You can’t keep us away and you can’t keep us silent. Just like Donald Trump, we will always win,” she said.

Ohio law permits the open carry of firearms in all outside public areas, according to The Post. And while the OU student code of conduct prohibits the possession of guns, non-students are permitted to carry guns on campus grounds.
In another tweet, Bennett explained that she went to Ohio University to ask students trivia questions about President’s Day.
I went to @ohiou to ask President's Day trivia questions like "who were the first 3 presidents". It's not my fault the students there are a bunch of whiny children that have to throw temper tantrums because someone they disagree with shows up. https://t.co/C32KbdxX2t
