Protesters shut down Tomi Lahren event at University of New Mexico


From WWW.THEBLAZE.COM

Earlier this week, conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren was scheduled to speak at the University of New Mexico at an event sponsored by the Turning Point USA student chapter at UNM.

However, a large crowd of protesters gathered outside the event, demanding that Lahren not be permitted to speak on campus. A video clip shared on YouTube shows protestors shouting “shut it down” outside the event and pounding on the doors of the venue.

Organizers ended the speech early due to what they said were safety concerns. Lahren and students inside the venue were escorted out after a fire alarm was pulled; Turning Point USA stated that Lahren and her father were forced to be barricaded in a safe room for 45 minutes. University officials reported that there were no injuries reported.
