Left-wing students at the University of Washington have posted “Racist In Your Class” flyers around the school featuring Jessica Gamble, the President of the College Republicans, in response to Gamble inviting Breitbart Senior Editor MILO to talk at the school.
“The UW Republicans are hosting alt-right Milo Yiannopoulos at UW. They claim that they don’t agree with Milo’s racist and transphobic rhetoric; they just believe in ‘free speech'” wrote the leftists on the flyer, which featured two personal images of Gable’s face. “Don’t believe them: Their leaderships close friendships with Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists reveal them as far more comfortable working with racists than they’ll admit.”
“Let Jessie know what you think about her close friendships with with Neo-nazis and White Supremacists” concluded the flyer, which also featured Gamble’s Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts, email, phone number, and the number of her father. “Why don’t you tell her father too while you’re at it.”
Gamble responded to the harassment on Facebook, writing “2017 is already off to a dramatic start!”
“If you see any of these around campus or the U-District, please take them down” she continued. “They have my private contact information and even my dad’s information. I would hope that you know I’m not alt-right, a Neo-Nazi, racist, etc. Seattle Antifa is just enjoying the fact that I have a few degrees of separation on social media from some crazy people in Portland.”
“Already called to inform the UWPD about this matter and I’m not really even riled up about this or anything,” concluded Gamble. “It’s quite frankly a little tiresome to have to deal with all of this on top of school, running the club, and finalizing the event.”
Gamble finished her response joking that “Atleast (sic) they used nice pictures of me!”
Gamble is currently fundraising to cover the final costs of MILO’s appearance on campus. These are school-imposed fees, since MILO doesn’t charge students to visit.
