A Florida State University student who became an internet sensation in all the wrong ways this week — particularly for trying to claim that the Nazis weren’t socialist even though the word socialist is in their party name — is now under arrest for her actions in the video.

And no, it’s not for defending socialism; in spite of the best efforts of the American left, the First Amendment is still alive, well and operative. Throwing chocolate milk on people you disagree with generally isn’t covered under free speech, however, and given that she allegedly did that, she’s going to be given an introduction to the legal system in the Sunshine State.

“A Florida State University student was arrested and charged with battery after a profanity-laden outburst at a College Republicans display was captured on camera,” WJXT-TV reported Friday.

“The video, viewed nearly 30,000 times, shows 19-year-old FSU student Shelby Shoup throwing chocolate milk, hitting students and kicking campaign signs at a College Republicans booth.”

The video shows a woman, allegedly Shoup, berating members of the FSU College Republicans.

“You are supporting Nazis, you understand that?” she can be heard saying at the beginning of the video.

When one of the Republicans pointed at what appeared to be a Soviet hammer-and-sickle pin on her jacket and asked if she’s supporting communism, she responded, “Yeah, I f—ing am.”

“Don’t pour your coffee on me,” one of the men in the video said.

“F— you, I will,” she responded angrily, before throwing her drink (apparently just milk) on him. “F— all of you.”

The woman then proceeded to engage in a rambling diatribe about how the College Republicans were responsible for the mass shooting of 11 Jewish individuals inside a Pittsburgh synagogue, among other things.

“Do you understand that fascism is here?” she said. “Do you understand that f—ing Nazis are here?”

“I hope you realize you are normalizing and enabling Nazis,” she added later in the video. “Eleven of my people are f—ing dead this weekend. Two black people are dead in Kentucky. These are f—ing nationalist murderers.”

Hunter Pollack — a member of the FSU College Republicans and the brother of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack — was one of the people who shared the video online.

“She doesn’t even know what fascism and Nazis are,” Pollack, who is Jewish, told WJXT.

“I want to spread love,” he said. “We can’t be throwing chocolate at each other on campus. That’s unacceptable.”

Local Jewish leaders also condemned the attack.

“You should not be condemning that other person as being completely indecent, because if you take the time to listen to their narrative, you will start to understand why they believe what they believe,” Tallahassee Rabbi Jack Romberg said.

Shoup was arrested two days after the video was shared online. She has a relatively long history of liberal activism, from volunteering for Florida gubernatorial candidate and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum to organizing events for the “abolish ICE” movement, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

“We need to tear the whole system down,” Shoup said at a June rally. “Abolishing ICE is our minimum demand.”

Unfortunately for her, it seems, she wasn’t able to get around to tearing that whole system down before the system came for her.

    Some times, ‘minds full of mush’ make serious mistakes.. the question is, is anyone paying attention and replacing ‘Mush’ with frontal cortex pragmatism.

  • Annabel says:

    A bit late to the party but a couple of questions: Are students allowed to appear on campus
    in their underwear? Also what’s with the dreadful language? Can they not speak properly?
    They need to study some Oxford/Cambridge debates (from the 60’s) to learn how to insult the opposition in such an amusing way it is not offensive and everyone gets to laugh, even
    those being verbally attacked and all w/o foul language.
    One could swing this one around their head by those eyebrows.

    Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

    Published

    on

    Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

    Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

    In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

    “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

    She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

    “When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

    The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

    “There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

    Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

    “I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

    Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

    “[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

    Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

    Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

    “I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

    “I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

    Published

    on

    The Democrats demonized President Trump for using the word ‘fight’. Trump’s attorneys responded today with a collage of clips from each of the Democrats in the room using the word ‘fight’.

    This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

    The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

    WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

    Published

    on

    President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

    Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

    At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

    House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

    During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

    But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

    Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

    On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

    White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

    Published

    on

    The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

    “The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

    “During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

    “TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

    “In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

    Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

    “The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

    New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

    Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
