Patch Tampa reports:
While thousands of conservative student activists cheered the words shared by some of the country’s top conservative leaders, including former President Donald Trump, at Turning Point USA’s 2022 Student Action Summit in the Tampa Convention Center, angry words were exchanged between young adults outside.
Hundreds of activists came out for a “Don’t Facist Our Florida” protest organized by Florida For Change, Tampa Bay Community Action Committee and Women’s Voices of SW Florida.
Alex Stein of Dallas, Texas, who broadcasts the program, “Prime Time 99 Alex Stein,” on Rumble and describes himself as a “professional troll,” was escorted from the protest area by police after he grabbed signs away from pro-life demonstrators while shouting, “Baby killers. You guy murder babies.”
Creative Loafing Tampa reports:
As the protest crowd approached, right wingers holding signs that read “Free the J6 Political Prisoners” shouted “keep moving commies!” as the protestors shouted “racist, sexist, anti-gay, Ron DeSantis go away!”
When the protest crowd arrived in front of the convention center, the right wingers entered the crowd and began antagonizing protesters. Self-described “comedian” named Alex Stein also entered the crowd and called all of the protesters “baby killers” as he ripped signs out of women’s hands and pushed his way into the crowd.
TPD removed Stein from the crowd and one officer told him, “You can’t be physically fighting people,” but still refused to take action against him. When asked why TPD just let him go with little incident—even with several witnesses, victims, and video of him instigating—officer D.J. Rhodes noted that protestors were on the walkway.
Last week Stein earned national headlines for sexually harassing AOC on the steps of US Capitol, a stunt which earned him appearances on Fox News and multiple pro-Trump outlets. As you can see by his own clip below, Stein is quite proud of himself.
