She had every right to throw her drink at him in self defense.


Self defense of what?? Did he approach her, try to take her computer, verbally assault or harass her to her face or infringe on her personal space? If not, she has no right to throw water on him simply for social media posts.

Funny how the (conservative) blog leaves out the little details but just continues on as a hit piece.

And this OP is simply a hit piece couched as a "social issue."

Fail.


Well, his post reeked of violent intent.
He either 1) planned to take her laptop by force to smash it. Or
2)Planned on her being too frightened of a violent confrontation to resist.



Conjecture.

And *only* conjecture on your part about his true intent, and still doesn't give her the right to throw water on him unless he actually physically confronted her.

Period

Go on then, what's the alternative? How's he going to take her laptop, with all her work on and smash it?

A threat is a threat and action can be taken whether on twitter or not


A simple threat to destroy property does not give one the *right* to assault another person *first* unless the danger is imminent and real.

e.g. If someone posts online that they're going to kick your @ss, that does NOT give you the right to seek them out and pound them first. Etc.


No, it doesn't honestly, but look at it this way:

Trump mentioned strong border security in the form of a wall on the US/Mexican border and deportation of illegal immigrants and this is how they behaved:



Conservative speakers come to college campuses by invitation, and if they are not disinvited outright, this is how the people who are triggered by the mere thought someone they disagree with might talk behave:



But when this occurs, most of the people blasting this girl (who was educated in the same environment and system that produces these other protesters and their methods, I might add) who reacts in a similar fashion, defend these groups and say it's their freedom of speech to act out in this manner.

OK.

Well this girl's throwing of the water was her "free speech," and if it's not, then these other protests aren't "free speech" either.

Lol. It is funny how your character has come screaming through with that post. This man took photos of a woman wirhout her permission, posted it on teitter and said he would attack her if it got retweeted 7k time it got retweeted 15k times. She tossed water on him for doing that. You think she is in the wrong. Disgusting hypocritcal left. Get bent

All women have the right "slap" a crude bully by throwing a beverage in their face! It's tradition!


The act of throwing a drink in someone's face, or a drink slap, has been used since the earliest days of cinema — a fed-up woman throws her drink in a man’s face to show her disdain for the offender. It dates back at least to the silent film The Wages of Sin (1914), and there have been countless since then, and many that have made for some of the most iconic scenes in movie history.

But he didn't assault her did he?? According to the article she actually assaulted him "throwing her cup of liquid on him."

But I guess that's ok for her to do to him, right???

Ever think that maybe they are both wrong??? Or are you just trying to continue the pattern from one side while others continue it from their side??? Because the more you do it, so will they and the whole time blaming the other side for justifying it.


He threatened to attack her, and insulted her repeatedly. If you actually think that her spilling her drink on him equals to some thug threatening a woman 7,000 times and calling her names, then it is obvious your own bias is showing through.

There is not, or shouldn't be, a different set of rules for each situation. There is one standard that is equally applicable across the board: that the person threatened has no right to do harm *first* unless, as I've mentioned, that danger is imminent and real.

These other instances or videos you present are irrelevant, because we're talking about the incident in the Op, so please don't deflect or move posts.

Throwing water *on someone* isn't free speech.

Protests are free speech. Insults are free speech. Assault, violence, vandalism, etc, aren't free speech, and neither are threats.

ETA: *non-violent* protests are free speech

Are you going to report every tweet with an instagram picture or youtube video like this? You are going to be posting for a very long time.

A "protest" like the ones in the videos I posted is what she did. It is physical action masquerading as "free speech."

Do you not see your own double standard?

How do you think she got to the point of tossing the drink at him? He was verbally assaulting her in the very least.

Why are you defending this thug?

Mainly because he likely agrees with him in principle.

You and a few other Liberals are doing it. it's time to show your own political base is as bad, or worst than the conservatives and Republicans you demonize every chance you get...

I never said he was in the right (because he was certainly in the wrong for doing what he did); however, she is also in the wrong because she physically did something to him when he did not physically do anything to her. Period.

Perhaps you don't read comprehensively very well to understand the issue that I've mentioned more than once: you do NOT have the right to throw something at or on another person unless harm to you is *imminent.*

But, if you're going to attack my character, which is a very low and sleazy thing to do, I have nothing more to say to you in this thread.

Did I ever say there was a different standard?

No, I didn't. Quit assuming my positions.

Right, because black college students are known for their support of Ted Cruz. This is what I call willful ignorance.


Where in the article or tweets does it say that the student is black? Are all blacks liberal socialists and Bernie/Hillary supporters? I didn't know that?



www.nydailynews.com...

Clifford Durand threatened to smash the student's computer in what his friends say was a prank. The tweet took the Internet by storm.

Riiight, and a thug threatening to smash that (expletive) woman, even insulting her and you think she shouldn't have felt threatened, or abused by the verbal attacks and threats of violence on her?... If he were to try to just smash her laptop, you think he wouldn't have had to get through her first to do that and she is just going to take it?... A threat like this is against the law, anyone else would have been thrown in jail a long time ago, and still he was able to threaten her several times, he said 7,000 times which means he was going to continue. Also in case you didn't know violent thugs tend to increase their violence towards their victims. First threatening, insulting them, and when that doesn't work physical attack their victims.

The campus police should have imprisoned that thug a long time ago instead of allowing him to continue his threats.

Imagine if this was a white Trump supporting male who was threatening a black female for her support of Hillary or Bernie? It would be a national outrage. Instead we find what we typically find, left wingers rationalizing.

There are plenty of conservative blacks. Just because this guy is black, that doesn't mean he's a Sanders or a Hillary supporter. He could be with the conservative "Never Trump" crowd.

I'm not condoning what he did. I just don't see how we can assume that he's a liberal.
