Kaitlyn Mullen, a sophomore at the school, found herself in hostile territory while trying to recruit for a conservative group.
Kaitlyn Mulle, a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a member of conservative group Turning Point USA, found herself under siege when trying to recruit new members for her organization at the college on Friday, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
A woman “berated and intimidated” the conservative student while trying to recruit new members:
Kaitlyn Mullen said she had a table set up in front of the Nebraska Union on behalf of Turning Point USA, a national organization that has chapters on campuses around the nation. Mullen said she likes Turning Point’s pro-capitalism, anti-big government message.
Soon, however, she was confronted by women who accused her of advocating white nationalism and having KKK leanings.
She said that she began to cry because of the hostile atmosphere and that campus police eventually took her home.
The university is currently reviewing the incident, and its chancellor met with Mullen to discuss the situation on Monday.
According to photographs, one of the women berating Mullen was a professor at the university’s English department:
Mullen, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, took a photograph of one woman near her table who held a sign: “Please put me on your watchlist. Prof Amanda Gailey,” the sign read. Gailey is a faculty member in the English department at UNL. She could not be reached for comment Monday evening.
