A Machete-Wielding Republican Just Attacked Democrats On A College Campus

On Transylvania University campus in Lexington, Kentucky, a man entered a popular coffee shop with several knives, looking to kill Democrats. He injured one student with a machete before being apprehended by campus security.

The University’s President, Seamus Carey told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the victim is “safe and her family is with her at UK hospital.” Police Chief Mark Barnard said the assailant was also taken to the hospital for evaluation, while a third individual was treated for minor injuries on the scene.

Tristan Reynolds, the editor of Transylvania’s student paper, witnessed the attack along with the 30 to 40 people in the cafe at the time and recounted the experience.

“A guy came in, banged something, a hatchet or an ax, on the table and said ‘the day of reckoning has come,” Reynolds said. “He asked somebody what their political affiliation was, they said ‘Republican’ and the guy said ‘you are safe.” And then I realized what was going on and started getting people out.”

“We started to scatter and then, very quickly campus security was getting everybody sheltered and secure. They were on it,” Reynolds added.

The university cancelled classes for the day, but Lexington Mayor Jim Gray assured the media that the situation was in hand and the campus had been reopened.

Hopefully, Republicans will take this as a signal to tone down their dangerous rhetoric. With President Trump addressing the NRA today — the first President to do so in 34 years — we probably shouldn’t count on it. For now, at least, we can all be grateful that the assailant did not have a gun and no one was killed.
