A University of Buffalo student said she was ‘hunted down’ by a woke mob screaming ‘no justice, no peace,’ after she invited prominent black Republican Lt. Col. Allen West to speak on how he overcame racism.
Therese Purcell, president of the Young Americans for Freedom, a campus club that organized the event, said she and her fellow members only wanted to bring these open dialogues of racism to campus.
But protests erupted after the filled-to-capacity event, leading to an angry mob that chased Purcell, leaving her afraid of what would have happened if she wasn’t able to hide from them.
She shared terrifying footage of the incident online, and says it left her fearing for her life, Fox & Friends First reported.
‘I realized I was the target for these protesters, and about 200 of my fellow students started hunting me down on campus, started chasing me,’ she said.
Purcell said she heard the angry crown screaming, ‘go get her, go get her, go capture her, the girl in the red dress.’
Purcell barely escaped the mob as she was pulled into the bathroom by a friend, where they called 911.
But Purcell added that even inside the bathroom, she heard the mob yelling that the need to ‘find her.’
‘I’m very afraid of what would have happened if I hadn’t been able to avoid them,’ she said.
‘I don’t think they were going to do anything remotely peaceful,’ Purcell told Fox & Friends Monday. ‘They were a very angry mob, and they were clearly saying that they were trying to chase me, that they wanted to capture me.’
Purcell spoke out Monday about the terrifying moment she says she was ‘hunted down’ which made her afraid for her life.
Tensions rose during the Q&A session just following a speech made by Lt. Col. Allen West at Thursday night’s event called, America Is Not Racist—Why American Values are Exceptional.
