Gateway Pundit Blogger Arrested In Scuffle With Woman At His “It’s OK To Be White” Campus Speech

The Huffington Post reports:

A controversial far-right reporter was arrested Tuesday night following an altercation at a University of Connecticut event where he was speaking, a university spokesperson said. Lucian Wintrich, 29, the White House correspondent for the conservative website The Gateway Pundit, had been giving a speech advertised as “It Is OK To Be White” when a woman approached his lectern and took some papers off of it.

Video from the scene shows Wintrich chasing after the woman and grabbing her in what appeared to be attempt to snatch the papers back. Campus police quickly stepped in and escorted him out of the room. He was then taken into custody and charged with breach of the peace before being released on an $1000 bond, the university spokesperson said. Photos show a crowd of protesters following the police car that took him away.

The Gateway Pundit is calling the woman a “commie.” Sure. For those unaware, the homocon-run Gateway Pundit is perhaps the nation’s most infamous fake news site and regularly posts hoaxes and wild claims which are quickly debunked.

  • Baltimatt

    Isn’t he supposed to be in his high school classes today?

    • Lumpy Gaga

      What, securing his successor in Jim Hoft’s special clubhouse??

  • gaycuckhubby

    Is it fair to say he was arrested for assaulting someone when he wasn’t charged with assault?

    • clay

      Technically, yes. The police arrest, but they do not charge.
      “In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders.”

      • gaycuckhubby

        Gotcha…
        I question if it’s ethical reporting though. That being said, I have no problem with the arrest and the charge that he now faces

        • clay

          Gotcha…
          In the US, arrest records are already public information. I’m more concerned when the press publishes racial identifiers of people who are already in custody– how’s that helpful if the people don’t need to be on the look out for the individual?

        • Lumpy Gaga

          You’d be handwringing over journalistic ethics in the face of the coverage of the Hindenberg. (“Was it really necessary to invoke “Humanity”?)

      • Lumpy Gaga

        And this is their story. Sad.

      • /obligatory “chunk chunk” sound

    What a fucking mess that event was

  • Hunter M

    Poor Lucian, just can’t get laid. Has to take it out by attacking women.

  • j.martindale

    Isn’t this one of the Twinks for Trump fools?

    • JoeMyGod

      Yup. Same guy.

      • Todd20036

        He’s no twink. Most twinks I know are very gorgeous. Many times it’s their only saving grace.

        • Strepsi

          Lol

    • Steverino

      Gateway Pundit must be a right-wing twink tank.

    • kaydenpat

      It’s him.

  • Gustav2

    Folks, the best protest is to laugh at the Alt Right/Nazi speakers, not this nonsense.

    • gaycuckhubby

      Yes. The woman who took his notes off the podium might feel good but it does nothing to advance her cause. No one was swayed by her actions if anything it just rallied his supporters more towards him. He lost nothing here. The arrest will not carry jail time, will not hurt his reputation any furthet and will not hurt his career.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Yes. The woman who took his notes off the podium might feel good but it does nothing to advance her cause.

        Damien losing his shit over a piece of paper does nothing to advance his cause.

        • gaycuckhubby

          I agree. It’s a wash. no one won here

          • Lumpy Gaga

            Not a wash. He provoked.

          • gaycuckhubby

            A wash in the respect that no one gained credibility from this

          • Lumpy Gaga

            She doesn’t need credibility from anyone. Luscious craves it.

          • Daveed_WOW

            He got validation and adoration within a Tweeting minute from the Right. Big gain. The Right always gains big when the Left attacks. The Republican voter adores their bullies and when we fight back it makes them stronger. They think they are morally superior and that the rest of us are uppity and don’t know our place. He’s their new hero. Mark my words.

          • Lumpy Gaga

            Swiping a piece of paper off a podium is hardly an “attack”.

            He’s their new hero. Mark my words.

            Each day produces a new RW three-minute hero. These people still fap to Dead Breitbart screaming “Stop raping people!” at homos.

          • Daveed_WOW

            I forgot my scare quotes

          • Lumpy Gaga

            Just like I have apparently provoked a downvote by saying that a guy giving a speech entitled “It’s OK to be White” was provoking.

          • Lumpy Gaga

            How unfair that I have been downvoted yet cannot assault the REAL aggressor.

          • provoked! dashes, man, how can he possibly survive such an insult??? he clearly should’ve shot the protestor and had her corpse sent across the border for sterile removal. no right wing nut job should ever suffer the horror of being “provoked.” /clutches pearls

        • Daveed_WOW

          Sure it does. Makes him look tough, violent, alpha. The Right loves men who get violent with uppity women. They will be making love to him on the Right Wing media within minutes. Trump has already tweeted his adoration*

          *Talking out of my ear, but you know what I mean.

      • clay

        I think that depends on what the notes contain.

        • Gustav2

          Probably porn.

        • gaycuckhubby

          I’m pretty sure it was just his speech that he was making

    • Rambie

      Agreed.

    • MonochromeMouse

      No, the best protest is to beat the absolute shit out of alt-right/nazis whenever they show up anywhere and make them afraid to go out in public.

  • Boreal

    I remember guys like this asswipe from college except they were Reagan fellators and no sane gay person wanted anything to do with them.

    • PickyPecker

      Ahh, yes. The ‘young republicans.’ I wonder if they’re still as pathetic as they were back then? wait…scratch that.

      • jerry

        HaHa…brought back an old memory: I was on a committee in college (early 80’s) that lobbied the legislature for more money for higher education, chaired by the student body VP. One meeting he couldn’t be there, so another guy took over–rather plump guy wearing a sweater vest/tie–that I’d never seen before. He kept arguing that we needed to show those guys (lege was mostly Dem at the time) that students had the voting power and if they didn’t cough up more money, we’d rise up and vote them out. I kept telling him that they know students don’t vote in large enough numbers, that we had to show the large economic benefit investment in education brings. He persisted in this idiocy, and I finally asked, “Who are you, leader of the Young Republicans or something?” Some nervous laughter from the group because, of course, he WAS president of the Young Republicans.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Yep. The Young Republicans from the early 80s. I recall those swamp monsters as well. Many of them are in Republican,Tea Party, and conservative media leadership positions, now.

  • Dagoril

    Lol…even Ben Shapiro thinks that Lucian is a twat.

    • Gustav2

      That’s because Ben wants to remain the conservative twink, but is ageing out.

      • Boreal

        but is ageing out, and poorly.

  • TheGrandWazoo2

    Now is the Wintrich of our discontent.

  • Wow, when even Ben Shapiro is shaking his head at you, you’ve definitely hit a low.

    • Highmoremotel

      He’s triggered by these types of scenarios after the Michelle Fields and
      Corey Lewandowski kerfuffle. He’s still a prick, though.

  • jmax

    “It Is OK To Be White”. Yes, being white is fine. It’s also okay to be black, or brown, or whatever color you are. I’m sure there a good people of all colors.
    The problem comes when you start believing that you’re BETTER because you’re white.

    • clay

      Lucian also believes it is OK to be vigilante, if you’re white.

      • jmax

        Well, yeah.

        And you didn’t even accomplish that….

      • Steverino

        Considering the people who consider themselves to be white supremacists, it’s clear the term is a misnomer and an oxymoron.

    • Highmoremotel

      EXACTLY! You’re only better when your LGBT oriented. Everyone knows this.

      • DaddyRay

      But see, when you say that brown or black is EQUAL to white, then you’re diminishing his whiteness! Equality means he loses something. And we can’t have that.

      Why, just today, a 100 people told me it was NOT OK for me to be white! /s

    • Ken Berry

      Actually, “white” is defined solely by what it is not. It is a social construct that enables bigotry, racism and genocide. I’m really ashamed it says so on my birth certificate, which in addition to race, had a space for “Father’s Occupation” but NOT for “Mother’s Occupation.” Another concept that it is past time to jettison.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Don’t worry, Lucian. It’s OK to be ugly and stupid.

    The “alpha male” conservatives at Mediaite (why do I go there?) don’t have a problem with a man assaulting a woman. “She took his notes…” so it’s A-OK to assault her. That’s their take on it.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Wonder how they reacted that time Louis Farrakhan jumped a white girl from behind.

      Oh, wait. That never happened.

    • Cuberly Deux

      Yesterday there was a group of copy/paste gay bashers & white nationalists over there. It was a fair number of accounts posting at least, chances are they were just a few individuals but with multiple disqus accounts, but still.

      • Gigi

        I’ve blocked most of them. I see others responding to them, so I see their names popping up all the time.

        • Cuberly Deux

          Usually I check the number of comments in their comment history before I block them. If it’s in the tens of thousand or higher I block them. Usually indicates a dedicated troller copy/pasting like mad for hours on end every day.

          I think it’s a good idea to report on them though. The only way Mediaite and Disqus actually do something. If a comment is particularly bad I report them specifically to disqus.

          • Gigi

            I check their comment-to-upvote ratio. If their upvotes are half or less than their comments, I block them.

  • no, i didn’t know who he was and no, i don’t care. his kind were common back when i was an undergraduate and no one cared about what they had to say either. he’ll be forgotten very soon.

      😘

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Really? Let me edify you. She took some papers off a lectern (stupid, but hardly violent) and his response was to charge after to her and grab her. The moment he touched her, it was assault. That’s why he was arrested.

      On another note, loving how he is declaring it was the students who were violent…just like Trump, he’s denying the tape.

      • BobSF_94117

        Let me edify you. People who take things should expect to have someone grab their arms. The only reason police would take such a reasonable action as a crime is because they’re out to arrest someone for another reason. That’s not equal treatment and it certainly isn’t justice.

        If laying hands on someone who just committed a crime is a crime, then why didn’t the police arrest the guys who man-handled him after he grabbed her arm?

        I’m no fan of Nazis, but this is also unacceptable.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          Silencing Nazis is NEVER unacceptable. This shouldn’t even be a discussion. Nazism is one of the few concepts that is unambiguously evil and there should be no attempt at either normalizing or sympathizing with them. They should never be defended, EVER…for any reason, especially when they present themselves as benign wolves in sheep’s clothing. A Nazi is good for only thing, fertilizing the ground. As someone who knows all to well what fascists are like, I will make no apologies for fighting them and, if the need arises, ending them. Period. This is not negotiable and I will not entertain anything to contrary. This is one of the few absolutes I have in my life.

          • BobSF_94117

            You sound like one of those ridiculous anti-liberal types at Breitbart. Just because the politics are reversed doesn’t mean the attitude isn’t appalling.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            This isn’t about politics, this is about an ideology that has proven itself to be the epitome of evil, literal evil. This isn’t about someone who’s conservative or even right wing, this is about NAZIS. That you seem desperate to give them even a modicum of room in which to potentially flourish because “oh no, we must let them speak” speaks volumes to either your lack of knowledge regarding what they stand for or their place in history. Again, it’s one of the few absolute I have in life, the only good Nazi is a dead one. I will not allow, yes I’m using the word allow, them to ever again rise to any semblance power, even if it’s just wilting. I and my husbotter have family members who still have the numbers, never to fade, on their arms…so no, I will give no quarter. And frankly, for you to even suggest that I’m the same as those at Breitbart because of my views on Nazis…well that’s truly appalling. I will no speak on this again.

          • BobSF_94117

            Fine. Please demonstrate how the nitwit who was going to give a speech rises to the level of Nazi. You know, the killing kind of Nazi.

            Your willingness to toss out freedom of speech, a freedom gay people should revere, is how you are similar to Breitbart types and the silly exaggeration of the nitwit to Nazi stature is like the incessant suggestion that liberals are like Pol Pot.

          • Freedom of Speech means the government cannot come after you for being an azzole.
            It does not mean I cannot kick your ass for being an azzole.

          • BobSF_94117

            Yes, when you capitalize it or refer to the right of free speech, you’re talking about govt action. That isn’t the only meaning.

            “They should never be defended, EVER…for any reason,”.

            So, if someone like that bumped into another person and that person pulled a knife and tried to kill him, the police shouldn’t intervene and try to prevent that murder?
