Conservative College Student Physically Attacked Over Political Views…

CTH doesn’t like to draw attention to the political extremists because often it only advances their objectives.  However, the recent story today of a young conservative college student brutally assaulted is horrific and authorities are looking for the attacker.


The original videos of the event were shared on social media {see here and see here}, and show an aggressive Berkeley student physically attacking a young conservative student named Hayden Williams simply because the attacker disagreed with his political views.

CALIFORNIA –  University of California police want the public’s help tracking down a suspect whose brutal alleged assault of a conservative activist on the Berkeley campus was caught on video.

The campus police website said that two men on Tuesday approached a table where the activist was recruiting members to his group, and an argument ensued. The alleged victim, identified by Turning Point USA as Hayden Williams, held up his cell phone and began filming the two men who were allegedly harassing him. One of the two men knocked over the table, police said, and then punched Williams several times, causing injuries to his face. Much of the incident was captured on a witness’ cellphone, but it was unclear what, if anything, Williams may have said before the attack.

The suspects had left by the time police arrived.

Although Williams was helping Turning Point USA, he is not actually a member of the group. Williams is campus representative for Leadership Institute, according to Campus Reform, a conservative news site that the institute operates.

A witness told Fox News the recruitment table had a sign that said: “Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims,” in reference to the case of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who is accused of staging a bias attack against himself in downtown Chicago last month.

On its website, Campus Reform, which interviewed Williams, reported that the alleged attacker cursed at the activist, calling him a racist and threatened to shoot him. (read more)

    Hopefully he will be found and convicted of felony assault rather than getting a lesser misdemeanor charge! But I doubt it. He’s a felon and should be identified a such!

      Bubby, not only should that jerk be prosecuted, he should be expelled from the school. There is no room on campus for narrowminded losers, who go around attacking others simply because their beliefs aren’t in keeping with those of the attackers. They claim they are against fascists, but in reality, they ARE the fascists.

      I fear that this thug will not be expelled, but might be granted an assistant professor stint in the sociology department. It is, after all, Berkeley.

      See Barack, when you foment identity politics for 8+ years and teach bringing gun to a knife fight, or a fist to a civil debate, YOU, are to blame, and the real America will not stand down forever.

        Oh thank you for that Obama comment. All this “civic” violence began with him, not Trump or the hilary’s “deplorables.” It should be REPEATED DAILY. Of course now they have someone to pin it on. Snowflakes have been brainwashed in college and the CIA press. Thank God that Trump speaks truth. Have pity on the brainwashed, but be warned of their violent nature.

        He doesn’t care, the Left doesn’t care, so please LET’S stop hoping he will feel bad that he destroyed our Constitutional Republic.

        Please read Rules for Radicals and research the why and how about the rules. There is nothing new coming out of the Left. Lenin, Stalin, Mao and now Alinsky and Obama they have all written what some call the bible, others the koran, of the Left.

        They would never allow another holocaust, the killing fields, Hussian’s mass graves, that will never happen again. There is more logic pointing towards these things are required for success then there isn’t when it comes to the Left’s politics.

        I for get what Hitler called it, but there is a reason for these attacks. They have an end goal in mind and to reach it they need the Right to react in a certain way. Germany called it something, school of kids burnt down or a church full of nun’s, factory full of workers, all got burnt to death in a fire the Media and Socialist Party blamed on Conservatives. It was enough to get an extreme reaction and to make sure it never happend again, it would mean some rights would have to go away.

        It will take two or three protest size fist fights and even a little gun play to make everyone scared it will happen to them. The next step will be to ask the Right to just stop hurting people and if they do everything will be right in the world. Then the 4th big fight, turns into a massacre where only innocent bystanders or honor roll students are the ones getting killed and they are all persons of color.

        Then the gun grab, the rounding up of the Right, awhile revisionist history states that it worked during WW2 and if we did it then, we can do it now. Everything will be better once the Right is put in “time-out” for awhile. That time out won’t last long, there will be no need for it to. Either join them or join the over 100 million that didn’t.

        I hate to say it, but please do not physically fight back. We haven’t lost all hope of saving this country. As long as Trump is up front, we have a chance.

      My alma mater has issued their typically tepid statement about violent leftist “protestors” (they’re no such thing) promising … “serious consequences” … if the perpetrator is found to be a student. Had the perpetrator been conservative, UC Berkeley would have issued a much, much, stronger statement of immediate expulsion … “zero tolerance” … yadda, yadda, yadda. The tepid statement is a dogwhistle for their Marxist ideologies – see, two can play that game.

This video will ne run over and over during the Presidential campaign and rub it in the dems face, because they support this violence.

      I’ll lay odds that we have just witnessed a major player in the Bay Area Antifa movement unmasked … voluntarily … unmasked *snicker*. The odds that he is actually a UC Student are very long indeed. It still takes about a 4.4 GPA to even make the cut for consideration for admission. People, like this cretin, don’t achieve 4.4 Gpa’s. With the clarity of the photo, and with the local and national publicity already received, this bastard would already have been identified were he a student. He’s not. In fact, I suspect he is being hidden and moved by the Antifa thugs at this very moment. IMHO

    Easy for me to say behind a keyboard, but I wouldn’t let anyone punch me in the head like that. Ever. If you have to take a beatin’ take it, but make them pay for it. Should have known that’s happened at Berserkly before. Situational awareness. They’re also good at group jumping one person unless Basestick and his crew show up who tuned several of them up a little over a year ago. He could have jammed in his eyeball back into his skull with his finger, but you don’t take that. That phuktup miserable state is no carry, but he should have kept at least a 1″ or 2″ knife on him or a Brooklyn billy secured in his belt on his side. I hate to see this. One more incident booked into me memory bank which is getting damn full..

      Former Federal Air Marshal here…. You have to understand that most people that aren’t prone to violence/fighting freeze up when punched/hit… The very first fight that I ever got into when I was younger I was sucker punched but I just froze and took the punches.. I didn’t know how to react… Most people are this way… It’s easy to play monday quarterback but in the moment it’s shocking… This is why we need people like myself who have the ability to defend the defenseless around and willing to step in… I honestly wish I was there…

        Always have a plan. if you carry that is expected so you are thinking not just reacting and shooting. Focused, not in emotions.
        who knows, maybe that was what they wanted? Activism comes in all shapes and sizes. In contrast of the Jussie smollett hoax it looks bad, and timing is perfect.


      • Kenji says:

        Respectfully, I believe these conservatives saw it coming. Despite the threats they kept filming … telling the bastard that’s WHY they were filming … because he was acting violently. And even after he was hit … he picked up his phone off the ground to keep filming – repeatedly. No, this smart conservative did the right thing. I won’t call it turning the other cheek, because I don’t believe Christ called us to take beatings from mentally ill leftist scumbags. But it was very, very, smart to give this punk no excuse for his violence … other than offering a political opinion he HATED.

        This entire incident made me feel sick to my stomach. Hayden reminded me so much of my nephew in stature and in the way he reacted to the brute. The POS was obviously much bigger than Hayden so he figured he’d wait until the altercation had de-escalated a bit before sucker punching him in the face. Where is that pepper spray when you need it? I hope the guy is arrested soon, you can plainly hear him say on one of the videos “I’ll just shoot you”. Almost three years of this crap, it has got to stop!

    How many ‘ALLEGEDLYs’ can they stick in a single article???? This BS needs to stop, NOW. What kind of reporting is this? Did the ‘reporter’ get their degree at the same place AOC got hers? Alleged attack?? There is a video of the attack, for heavens’ sake!!

    And isn’t it just special that ‘the campus police are asking public’s help identifying the attacker’… How about they just go to the dean and ask to see the enrollment database. Come to think of it, the victim should file a report with the ‘real’ police, and have them demand access to the university’s files. The identification investigation should not take more than a few hours!

    Oh, I forgot, this is the LiberNazi Land.

    A note to Juicy Smollett – this is what a true victim of a beating looks like. Next time you try to fake an attack on yourself, give yourself something more than just a scratch on your cheek, you fairy lowlife.

    With such a clear photo of the attacker there should be zero reason for him not being found.

    If he has a connection to the school it should be easy. Every employee and student has their photos on file, I doubt they even delete former students immediately. I doubt it’s an actual 9-5 office worker, they wouldn’t be randomly walking around in the middle of the day.

    While the backpack indicates student to some, it’s really pretty normal to use one if you have one to carry stuff.

    • evergreen says:

      In the real world, a day having gone by without any revelation of who the perp is, the college would announce a bounty of free tuition in return for evidence leading to a conviction. Clearly, the college does not want this kind of thing to detract from its prestige and burst prospective students’ hopes for attending such a place. Clearly, the college would take AMPLE measures to remedy this situation, if for no other reason than self-preservation.

        I’m not so sure students at Berkeley rioted to prevent Ben Shapiro from speaking on campus, they literally almost burned the place down. I don’t remember any arrests in that incident?


  22. Mike says:

    If you are going to publicly express conservative views in an area saturated with Trump Derangement Syndrome zombies you need to be prepared to defend yourself physically and legally.

    Next time.
    1:Have two people assigned to the table, exercising free speech.
    2:Have one person recording video/audio, the whole time (Sony makes an action cam that records 4 hrs). Have the videographer far enough away from the table that they can get everything in the shot, and not appear to be part of the free speech.
    3:Have a 4th person posted away from the table who can watch the area for incoming threats, like masked ANTIFA thugs. This person also has the cops on speed dial incase needed.
    4: Have two or more other security persons in the area who can make a presence when the inevitable self proclaimed social justice warrior starts a confrontation.

    You, remain calm. Say “We don’t want any trouble, please calm down, etc” If the SJW starts getting physical have the back ups move in, but UN-aggressively. If attacked, call 911, AND you can legally use force to protect yourself, but it has to be reasonable. If you use force in self defense and the perp stops attacking you, you have to stop. Many times when the back ups roll in their presence alone is enough to cause the perp to de-escalate. Most places you can’t use force to protect property. So you can’t punch a guy who kicked your table over unless he is a physical threat against you. Perception is everything, be mindful not just of what your doing, but how it looks. If the perp flees follow at a safe distance while you call 911. Your job is to lead the cops to the perp.

    When the cops get there if you tell them you videoed it, they will take your camera, have their IT person seize the memory card etc. So, if the responding LE is for instance the FBI, then I would NOT tell them you videoed it until you were able to first make at least three complete copies of the entire video recorded that day.
    I’m not a lawyer but that is what I would do.
