University of Washington police arrested 18-year-old Ezra Benner an alleged ‘Antifa’ member after Benner attempted to use a chain to lock a College Republicans inside a meeting room.
Ezra Benner was only charged with disorderly conduct, but the College Republicans are seeking an unlawful imprisonment charge. A disorderly conduct charge is a badge of honor to these cretins!
It’s very illegal to lock doors to any public building with the intent to prevent them from exiting. The reasons for that law should be obvious to everyone.
Police arrested and charged with disorderly conduct Wednesday a masked individual who attempted to chain the door of a University of Washington-Seattle College Republicans meeting.
The group’s last meeting of the spring term featured a guest speech by the hosts of Operation Cold Front, a local conservative YouTube channel known for man-on-the-street style videos.
“A few days before the event, we received a tip that Antifa was calling for people to come disrupt the meeting, but we weren’t too worried about that since that type of thing happens all the time,” UW College Republicans President Chevy Swanson told Campus Reform.
Indeed, the local Antifa Facebook page features a direct call to “deplatform” the specific event.
“There’s space for 100 or so people, but for those who show up, some useful tactics might [be] to sit in using large items that take up additional seats, maybe with headphones in so you don’t have to hear their garbage, or noise demo tactics such as whistles to make it difficult for them to speak over,” the post read.

From now on at conservative speaking events, we need to have security posted outside the door. It is sad that the atmosphere of civil discourse is under assault.
Sooner or later one of these ANTIFA members will cause people to die, and for what? Free Speech? Just a different opinion other than theirs? They are a domestic terrorist group if one ever existed.

You’ll almost NEVER hear about this kind of insanity going the other direction. Nor will you EVER see these kinds of people getting deplatformed on YouTube.
