Black Lives Matter activists on two southern California college campuses shut down scheduled appearances by anti-BLM critic, pro-police advocate and author of the book The War On Cops, Heather Mac Donald.
Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar, was scheduled to give a “Blue Lives Matter” talk at UCLA on Wednesday to discuss her 2016 book and do a Q & A following her speech. The College Fix reports that while Mac Donald was able to get through the first half of her speech without incident, but when she opened the floor to questions, all hell broke loose.
A Facebook video posted by Bruin Republicans at UCLA, which organized the event, shows the event in its entirety. When Mac Donald concludes her speech on cops being the real victims, a student organizer stands to open the floor for questions, and people off camera can be heard chanting “Black Lives, they matter here!”
During one heated exchange, a young black woman in the audience asked Mac Donald whether “Black victims killed by cops mattered.”
“Yes,” Mac Donald replied. “And do black children that are killed by other blacks matter to you?”
