A conservative participating in a recruiting event at the University of California-Berkeley was punched in the face and threatened with being shot this week.

Hayden Williams, a field representative for conservative group, the Leadership Institute, was punched multiple times by an individual calling him a “racist bi**h.”

Campus Reform reports:

At the time of the incident, the alleged victim was helping students recruit other conservatives for Turning Point USA behind a table with a sign that read, “hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” a reference to the Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. 

But at least twice, the situation turned violent and now, police are asking for help in identifying the suspects. 

“Mother f*cker. You racist little inbred b*tch. C**t!,” the man who punched the alleged victim shouted. 

Williams told Campus Reform, “Some students nearby tabling were laughing, even one guy was smiling while I was being attacked and trying to hand me his flyer as a joke. The idea is free speech has consequences…. which include you getting assaulted if they find you promoting ideas others don’t agree with.”

In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Williams said he did nothing to provoke the man who punched him.

The university has confirmed that an investigation is under way.
