(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) University of California-Davis Chancellor, Gary May, has come under fire for slandering conservative pundit Charlie Kirk leading up to an on-campus Antifa riot.
May released the statement in a video post, wherein he called Kirk a spreader of “misinformation and hate” who has demanded “violence” against transgenders, Jonathan Turley reported.
“Thank you for sharing your distress at a student group hosting a speaker who is a well-documented proponent of misinformation and hate, and who has advocated for violence against transgender individuals,” May wrote, continuing to note that UC Davis prizes itself for its openness and toleration of all lifestyles.
“As a campus that is committed to our principles of community, UC Davis stands with our transgender and non-binary Aggies in opposition to this hateful and divisive messaging. UC Davis did not invite this individual and is not sponsoring this event.”
UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May took the time to record a bizarre video and slander me and our amazing students at TPUSA ahead of our event tonight, so I took the time to respond.

May has come under fire at the hands of numerous publications, including The College Fix, which claimed that May is the one guilty of spreading “misinformation” in claiming that Kirk spends his time calling for violence against transgenders.
Jumping on board with May’s anti-Kirk messaging, The Sacramento Bee falsely claimed that Kirk has called for the “lynching of trans people” according to a Fox News report.
One of the Bee‘s op-ed fabulists, Hannah Holzer, penned an article titled: “Another fascist is coming to UC Davis. How should the community respond?”
In the article, she described Kirk as “vocal transphobe and Donald Trump fanatic” who spends his time making money off of political controversy.
