With Donald Trump getting inaugurated as our nation’s 45th President last Friday, it has been quite a crazy month in the United States.
After a rage of violent protests in California two weeks ago, conservative icon Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event at UC Davis had to be canceled. During Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington D.C. last week, hundreds of Anti-Fascists ravaged the city, attacking Trump supporters, burning cars, and breaking windows. And just a few short days ago, a man was shot outside of Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event at the University of Washington.
But if you thought the chaos was over, you were wrong. Liberty Hangout has been informed that a young, female Trump supporter was assaulted by two Anti-Fascist protesters outside of Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking engagement at the University of Colorado Boulder.
After documenting the protests on her Facebook page through livestreams, CU Denver student Peyton Smith posted the following status last night.
Shortly after posting this status, Smith told Liberty Hangout, “I got attacked by two Antifa protestors one male one female for just standing there and live streaming. They punched me and hit my hat off.”
Smith told us that the two protesters were arrested, and CU Boulder Police confirmed on their Twitter that a total of three were detained last night. Denver7’s Eric English captured video of two protesters being taken into custody.

In her last livestream at the event, protesters are seen approaching Smith’s camera, yelling “No Trump, No KKK, no fascist USA” in her face. Smith responded to the protesters, “I’m not going to move,” and they continued to shout in her face, and the livestream was cut abruptly.
Colorado State University student Emily Faulkner, who was in attendance for the event, told Liberty Hangout, “It got pretty violent. It was not peaceful. They ripped signs, pulled hair, punched ‘nazis’. It was ridiculous.” She continued, “The protesting was really slow at first but then turned into an all out mob of people with bandannas around their faces yelling ‘no trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.'”
Hundreds were seen outside protesting, many brandishing signs and starting chants.
