Cornell student called a Racist “B” for Trump support
December 16, 2016
Cornell University student claims to have been violently assaulted because she is a Republican. “You support a racist party!”
- Olivia Corn, president of the Cornell University College Republicans claims that the day after the election last month, she was shoved to the ground and her attacker yelled at her, “[expletive] , racist [expletive]. You support a racist party!”
- As reported by The Daily Caller, the police is investigating the incident. No suspect has been identified.
- Corn shared that this is not the first time that her and the Republicans club have faced strong backlash.
Olivia Corn says she has faced aggression as the president of the Cornell University College Republicans more than enough times. The incident she felt urged to report to police happened just after election day. It is unclear why the story surfaces over a month later, but the Cornell student’s claim has been featured on numerous publications. Corn says she was violently shoved to the ground and her attacker yelled at her,
“[expletive] , racist [expletive]. You support a racist party!”
She’s also quoted in The College Fix saying that after a Cornell Daily Sun article in May featured her saying she would vote for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, she received death threats. The student claims to have been called fascist and a disgrace to women. The Tab quotes her saying,
“Friends of mine would come back and tell me they heard things like: ‘I’m gonna throw acid in her face,’” she said.
Corn has reportedly faced backlash from other students before, like when the College Republicans hosted Rick Santorum. As reported by The Daily Caller, the police is investigating the incident. No suspect has been identified. Corn claims she did not see the attackers face.
The claims sound very similar to proven threats received via phone call and email by Republican electors targeted aggressively to switch their vote. The efforts started not too long after November 8th and have intensified leading up to inauguration on January 20th.
