‘An incident at a Texas university proves no college campus is safe’ – Adam Guillette featured on the Daily Caller
August 17, 2023
On Monday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott held a ceremonial bill signing to commemorate the ‘Save Women’s Sports Act.’ This legislation aims to create safe space for women, protect women’s sports, and advance women’s rights. Feminists rejoice – right?
Bafflingly, supporting the rights of biological women is apparently no longer politically correct. Following the ceremonial bill signing, radical protesters came out in droves to harass, assault, and intimidate supporters of the bill.
Monday’s event was hosted at the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame at Texas Woman’s University, which describes itself as “the nation’s largest university system focused on women.” It should have been a joyous occasion, centered around celebrating women and women’s sports.
Unfortunately, that was not the case. Governor Abbott was joined by 12-time NCAA All-American swimmer Riley Gaines and a group of other women and young girls to celebrate the bill signing. On their way out, the women and children were confronted by an estimated 250 protesters who spat on, insulted and threatened them.
This is far from the first time Ms. Gaines has been assaulted by a radical mob on a university campus. In April, she was attacked by protesters after she spoke at an event hosted by San Francisco State University (SFSU). When I visited the campus and interviewed SFSU students following the violent protests, they showed no remorse. Instead, students celebrated the assault of Riley Gaines and callously mocked her.
