Gateway Pundit Blogger Who Pulled Gun on Protesters Is Banned From Portland College Campuses
Far right blogger and Gateway Pundit contributor Michael Strickland, arrested last week for pulling a gun on demonstrators in Portand and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a firearm, has now been banned from Portland college campuses.
Michael Strickland, the man charged with waving a gun at protesters last week at a Don’t Shoot PDX march, has been banned from Portland State and Portland Community College’s campuses.
The two schools confirmed Wednesday that Strickland will not be allowed to set foot on campus if and when he is released from custody. Portland State is banning Strickland for two years. PCC’s ban is indefinite, but Strickland could appeal the decision. Both schools informed Strickland of the ban last week.
The 36-year-old is in jail and faces one count of menacing, two counts of unlawful use of a firearm and second degree disorderly conduct. Strickland, who is being held on $250,000 bail, is due in court again Monday.
Strickland frequented these Oregon campuses to create content for his “Laughing at Liberals” blog and YouTube account, and was well-known as a right wing James O’Keefe wanna-be.
Kate Chester, PCC spokeswoman, said Strickland was increasingly seen on the college’s various campuses. He attended several sessions in April during PCC’s Whiteness History Month and “made the rounds,” appearing at the Southeast, Cascade and Sylvania campuses to film for his blog.
The college didn’t have any significant issues with Strickland at those events, Chester said, but he was routinely “pushing buttons” and made his presence known at certain speeches and published heavily edited videos from the events that raised eyebrows on campus.
Chester said some Whiteness History participants attempted to block Strickland’s view at sessions. “He got a little bit squirrely, but he didn’t pull a gun or anything like that,” Chester said.
We can now expect a lot of whining about “right wing viewpoints being censored” from the usual suspects.
Note that Strickland came to this demonstration with a loaded Glock pistol and five loaded magazines of ammunition. He was equipped to kill a lot of people.
