The repeated attacks were captured on video by Turning Point USA contributor Savanah Hernandez, which shows pro-transgender activists and trans-identified students yelling profanities and attempting to steal Chris Elston's phone, a conservative activist also known as Billboard Chris that travels across the United States and Canada with large signs that are intended to spark debate on cultural issues.
"@BillboardChris has been assaulted for the third time with the trans activist on the bike taking his phone and throwing it while another slaps trans stickers on his sign," Hernandez reported.
The sign draped over Billboard Chris that was intended to spark debate read “Children Cannot Consent to Puberty Blockers", but the students that often preach "tolerance" refused to participate in productive dialogue and resorted to violence instead.
"An extremely angry man has been screaming that @BillboardChris should 'shut the f*ck up' and 'move to a cave and die' because he’s an idiot.," Hernandez reported, sharing video of the incident. "The man cannot explain what about Chris has angered him, he just continues screaming, “f*ck you."
Other clips from the chaos at Portland State University shows an unhinged "braless student" screaming at both Elston and conservative activist James Klug, known for his man-on-the-street interviews, as they tried to have discussions with students about gender-transition surgeries for minors.
"A braless student begins screaming and singing the verses from 'WAP' in an attempt to shut down @BillboardChris and @realJamesKlug from speaking to students about trans surgery for kids," Hernandez reported, sharing a video of a female dancing inappropriately.
In preparation for Chris and Klug coming to campus, Portland State University issued a statement on Monday condemning gender-critical protesters coming to campus. They informed the community that the school will provide "safe spaces" for students to keep away from the "anti-trans" speakers.
Those safe spaces for adult-aged students included cotton candy, coloring books, crafts, and temporary tattoos, which Hernandez also captured on video on Wednesday.
Portland State University's Queer Resource Center also issued a statement on Monday informing students that their center will be open to them and encouraged them not to debate the "provocateurs."
"We received word that some provocateurs with anti-gender affirming care viewpoints are coming to campus next week to instigate debate over access to gender affirming care for minors. As Queer and Trans members of the PSU community, we want to affirm, celebrate and uplift the gift, joy, and power that is inherent to Trans folks and experiences of gender diversity."
"The intention of these provocateurs, the missive continues, "is not to invite productive dialogue. Their tactic is to provoke students, faculty, and staff - record it and turn our community into clickbait material to be consumed by other folks with anti-Trans stances. These folks are trained to stay calm and within their rights to share their opinions on public property under the First Amendment. Legally, we cannot stop them. But we can ignore them and not give them what they want: a reaction from us and further polarization."
The group then invited students to participate in a "radical act of resistance" and to join them for the "Trans and Gender Expansive Celebration and Community Hour."
