A radical feminist was triggered last month at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and repeatedly punched and kicked a pro-life activist. The man never saw the attack coming and he certainly did not provoke it. In a video posted by Created Equal, intern Austin Beigel is approached by a female student. “Did you put these [signs] up?” the feminist demands of the pro-lifer over graphic pics of aborted fetuses. When he says yes, she assaults him, punching him repeatedly in the face and kicking him in the stomach.
To give Beigel credit, he did not hit the woman in return. Most people would have. When you attack someone like this, their first instinct is to fight back for survival. She’s very fortunate he did not retaliate. After punching the pro-lifer, the feminist was approached by the police and notified that she would be charged with assault. According to a statement from the pro-life group, the incident occurred on April 2, when team members were posting “signs depicting the gruesome reality of abortion” meant to “engage students in conversation about this human injustice.”
From The Daily Wire:
“Created Equal confirmed to The Daily Wire on Wednesday morning that the feminist has been identified as a social justice activist known as Jillian Alexandra Ward and has been charged with a simple assault, which is a misdemeanor. Ward’s court date is set for June 4.
“Mark Harrington, president of Created Equal, said abortion activists are resorting to violence because they are losing the argument.
“Pro-abortion activists are losing the argument, and instead of seeking debate they are escalating the violence on peaceful preborn defenders on college campuses,” read a statement from Harrington.
“We will never cave to acts of violence or intimidation. We will return hate with love for mothers and their babies,” he added.
“We are committed to defending babies. We are also committed to defending the right to defend babies. Thus, Created Equal is currently engaged in several open cases with prosecutors charging those who attack our property or people, including the incidents at UNC,” said Created Equal.
“There have been a spate of incidents in the past few months wherein pro-lifers have been physically attacked or verbally harassed by abortion advocates. Over the weekend, for example, a Democratic state representative from Pennsylvania, Brian Sims, videotaped himself berating an elderly pro-life sidewalk counselor outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. In another video posted by the Democrat, Sims harasses three teenage girls and offers his viewers $100 for their identities so that they can be doxxed.
“Last month, an elderly pro-life woman in Kentucky, sidewalk counselor Donna Durning, was thrown to the ground outside an abortion clinic, suffering a broken leg and head injuries. Durning was apparently trying to pass out pro-life literature when she was attacked.
“And at the end of March, an elderly man at a peaceful pro-life prayer vigil outside a San Francisco-based Planned Parenthood abortion clinic was physically assaulted by an abortion advocate. The 85-year-old had his pro-life banner stolen by an unidentified male abortion advocate; when he attempted to retrieve his property, he was severely beaten and threatened.”
The attacker repeatedly shouts that her victim is a “f*cking terrible person,” and that the signage is “not okay,” adding that it is “triggering.”
According to The Daily Caller News Foundation, police confirmed that Jillian Alexandra Ward attacked Beigel and struck him in “the face and stomach with her fist.” Ward’s Facebook account indicates that she fancies herself a “feminist,” “mental health advocate,” and “activist.” That’s a scary thought as her first recourse over something she disagrees with seems to not be discussion, but violence instead.
According to Fox News, 19-year-old Jillian Ward, a student at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, was arrested and released after an attack upon members of pro-life group Created Equal on April 2. After an assault like that and charges being pressed, you would expect her to be behind bars and on her way to being sentenced. Evidently not so if you are a leftist.
Beigel endured punches to the face and the stomach. Ward will be charged with misdemeanor assault but she wasn’t taken in by police. Instead, she was given an arrest citation and released. She has a court appearance in June. That seems overly lenient in this case.
The left is getting more and more violent and is still getting away with their vicious actions against pro-lifers and Christians. Created Equal president Mike Harrington said that he believes this is part of a bigger problem on campuses. “Students being groomed on college campuses to be leaders, writers, and thinkers of the Left are increasing in censorship and violence against those with whom they disagree,” he said. And he’s certainly right.
