On November 14, 2017, Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer spoke at Stanford University. Several minutes into the lecture, Left-fascist students staged a mass walkout, and Stanford administrators prevented others who wished to attend from entering. Stanford dean Nanci Howe is seen in this clip congratulating the students walking out, and later listening as Spencer criticizes Stanford’s President and Provost.
It is no surprise that students at Stanford University disrupted best-selling author Robert Spencer’s lecture on November 14. Given the lead-up to his talk — “Jihad and the Dangers of Radical Islam: An Honest Discussion” — the scenario was scripted in advance, with the encouragement and support of the school’s administration.
