Three Left-Wing College Students Arrested for Setting Conservative Student’s Dorm On Fire


Three left-wing college students in Louisiana have been arrested for setting the dorm room of a conservative student on fire.

The dorm room of Peyton Lofton, who is president of Tulane’s chapter of the conservative campus group Turning Point USA, found his room in flames this month. The fire was set by people he did not even know, police said.

TPUSA chief Charlie Kirk made note of the vandalism on Twitter. “This is Peyton Lofton, our chapter leader for @TPUSA at Tulane,” Kirk wrote. “He was recently doxxed by the violent left for being a conservative. Last night his dorm room door was literally SET ON FIRE after he was doxxed.”

“The violent left is targeting students!” Kirk added.

“Lofton’s roommate Jackson Arnold said that he didn’t know any of the accused and doesn’t think Lofton did either, ” NTD.com reported.

When police analyzed dorm surveillance video, they were able to track down and arrest three attackers.

Robert Money, 21, and David Shelton, 20, who attend Tulane University, were arrested, along with Naimi Okami, 20, a Brown University student. Police said they were caught on security cameras.

Money, Shelton, and Okami were each charged with one count of aggravated arson after being arrested on March 23 and they appeared in court on March 24 before being released on bail.

“It’s a sad day in America when radical activists are lighting dorm room doors on fire because they disagree with you politically,” Lofton said in a statement.

“I’m proud of the work I’m doing on and off campus with YAL and TPUSA to bring students to the principles of the Constitution and individual liberty,” the victim added. “This only encourages me to continue the battle to reach my classmates with the message of freedom.”

Mike Strecker, a spokesman for the school, told the media that they aren’t sure if the act was politically motivated.

Come on. Three people who never met the victim, sought him out and vandalized his room after his personal information was leaked? And it’s not political???

Get real, Tulane.
