Tomi Lahren evacuated as crowd of protesters pound doors at University of New Mexico speech

A speech from right-wing commentator Tomi Lahren at the University of New Mexico ended in chaos on Thursday night, as a large, fiery crowd of student protestors prompted state

and campus police to shut down the event and evacuate guests. “They had a group of leftists acting like typical leftist antifa,” Ms Lahren said on Friday  in an interview

with Outkick. “And unfortunately the University of New Mexico doesn’t seem to care, not only about my safety, but about the safety of their own students, and left us all

barricaded in a room with basically rabid banshee animals trying to bust down the doors to get to us.” BREAKING: State police called at TPUSA event with @TomiLahren after a

conservative student group Turning Point USA, described the crowd as a “violent leftist mob” that attempted to force their way past police officers into a lecture space in the

Student Union Building, while the university’s Daily Lobo student paper described the demonstrations as non-violent. No students other than ticket-holders made it inside the

speech space, the paper reported.
