The scene at San Francisco State University was surreal. A champion female athlete speaking about maintaining the integrity of women’s sports was shouted down, assaulted, and chased from a speaking engagement sponsored by Turning Point USA.
The prisoners are running the asylum at SFSU…I was ambushed and physically hit twice by a man. This is proof that women need sex-protected spaces.
Still only further assures me I’m doing something right. When they want you silent, speak louder. 🗣️ pic.twitter.com/uJW3x9RERf

The woman screaming “Trans rights are human rights” needs some sort of intervention — or a straitjacket.
Gaines has become a leading advocate for women in sports and has thus had a bullseye stuck on her back by radicals.
As Gaines shared her experience competing against Lia Thomas, a biological male who identifies as a transgender female, a crowd of protesters could be heard chanting outside. The protesters eventually made their way to the room where Gaines was speaking, forcing her to evacuate.
As she was escorted by police, Gaines said she was physically hit.
“I’m OK currently, but an hour and a half later, I’m still barricaded in a room with ambushers on the outside yelling and threatening violence,” Gaines said.
“As police escorted me out of the event space to my current location, I was hit, physically, twice by what I presume was a male individual. This only assures me I’m doing the right thing.”
Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk called the attack “unacceptable.”
“This is unacceptable at an American college campus, even in San Francisco,” Kirk tweeted. “Pray for Riley Gaines and for our brave students at SFSU.”
The Independent Women’s Forum issued a statement of support for Gaines and condemned the violence against her.
“We strongly condemn the violence perpetrated against [IWF] spokeswoman Riley Gaines on SFSU campus. Riley was violently accosted, ambushed, and physically assaulted during a speech on sex discrimination women face in their own single-sex sports category,” the group wrote on Twitter.
Gaines’s agent, Eli Bremer, said the attack would not prevent Riley from speaking out.
“Instead of a thoughtful discussion tonight at SFSU, Riley was violently accosted, shouted at, physically assaulted, and barricaded in a room by protestors. It is stunning that in America in 2023, it is acceptable for biological male students to violently assault a woman for standing up for women’s rights,” Bremer said in a statement. “This will not stop Riley from boldly educating people of the dangers of biological males in women’s sports. She will continue to speak the truth against the radical left that no longer understands the difference between men and women.”
After being physically assaulted and driven from her speaking venue, Gaines was forced to barricade herself in a room for three hours while police tried to get the mob to disperse. She was finally able to leave with a police escort.

Fox News interviewed Gaines’ husband, who was enraged at the assault on his wife.
“She told me she was hit multiple times by a guy in a dress. I was shaking. It made me that mad. It makes me sick to feel so helpless about it,” Gaines’s husband, Louis Barker, told Fox News. “She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress.”
Are trans women really women? I give you Riley Gaines and Dylan Mulvaney. Which one do you think is a “woman”?

Were seeing the ugly side of Liberals and the Transgender movement

And the chickenshit *Biden administration “has their back” as they enable this destructive movement – including the rapist of a 15 year old girl in Loudoun County (the daughter’s father was the one arrested.)

What does their good side look like?

SFPD was as lackluster in protecting Mrs Gaines as the DCPD were in protecting the patriots on Jan 5th as AntiFa had sporadically targeted & attacked well-behaved protesters.
It was quite clear they were on their own & even worse – soon to be set up.
(The DC cops also attacked the complacent protesters. It took ’em half an hour to finally provoke them into the Rotunda.)
As for Riley’s attackers, no arrests of these violent freakshows even after they had assaulted her & demanded ransom.
It’s clear that she and anything MAGA aren’t only just on our own . . . we’re also targets (just ask any parent at a schoolboard meeting).
Over the target, my dear, over the target! And my unending respect for your bravery and commitment.
why I will not willingly go anywhere I cannot legally bring along my own protection. If that means I don’t go some places, so be it.
These dirty coppers were HIRED to protect this WOMAN and failed to DO THEIR JOB. That makes them thieves. Takea fee for a service not rendered, you have stolen that fee.
anyone think the cops will be “reviewing” the security footage of the event and venue, identify any of the perpetrators, and prosecute?
Nah. I’ll take my chances on a round trip ticket to the moon. More likley I’ll get what I paid for.
Andrew Blackadder says
Now we have arrived in the state of confusion whereby an actual Female needs Police protection from other actual females and men who think they are female because she is speaking about Young girls RIGHTS….
You cant make this stuff up anymore.
That black bald ”person” should be arrested, or kicked…
Remember when the msm piched a fit because a high school kid smiled at a fake Indian that was getting in his face, chanting loudly and beating a drum? Yet it’s okay for a leftist man to hit a woman as long as he’s wearing a dress.
