In response to Milo Yiannopoulos’ October 18 speaking event at Clemson University a group of Left-leaning students and their respective organizations formed the ‘Anti-Milo Event Committee’ to protest against the conservative speaker.

The Clemson chapter of Students for a Democratic Society is the primary instigator of the protest committee. The university’s SDS chapter is composed of a group of students and philosophy professor Todd May, who attends the club’s meetings. Based on undercover audio, SDS is coordinating with communications professor Kumanyika and the leader of the university’s Black Lives Matter spin-off ‘See The Stripes.’ Other groups that were contacted to join the protest include Clemson’s Feminist Club and LGBT club ‘SAGA.’



Per audio evidence of a September 29 chapter meeting, Clemson SDS president said, “we’re going to have an event planning committee that’s just going to organize around the Milo thing . . . so we can work together with [Feminist] club, Chenjerai Kumanyika and A.D. Carson.”

She also stated that Yiannopoulos sounded like, “someone I want to punch in the throat.” Adding that she planned on vandalizing the Yiannopoulos event flyers around campus, “I’m gonna’ throw paint all over [the event flyer] or something.”

There have also been been public threats to Yiannopoulos’, from this same individual. A tweet, “If somebody put a bullet in Milo’s head I would donate to that person’s bail fund.” was posted and promptly deleted by a member of this same SDS chapter.


On an audio recording of the meeting, individuals can be heard mocking free speech, stating, “I know why Clemson is allowing [the Yiannopoulos’ event], because ‘freeze peach!’”

Kumanyika, the professor helping with the protest plans, has been heavily involved in campus politics and controversies. He publicly criticized Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney in an article after the coach commented on Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest. Kumanyika was also thrown out of a Donald Trump campaign rally last year at Clemson.
