Gained national attention after she reported that a conservative student threatened.
To assault her sexually assault her in an on -- post.
-- obscene message sparked outrage across the college community but then campus police started digging around and now they say.
Meg here is the person who posted.
Post in the first place.
And she is now facing charges.
-- -- -- a reporter for campus reform dot org a conservative group that spends time investigating in highlighting incidents like these Katherine welcome to the program itself.
All -- I don't know if this is true she appears to have some problems.
Because she posted this this disgusting -- saying I wanna.
Meg linkers Simmons that check runs or liberal mouth all the time doesn't care who knows that one they -- mean she's gonna be a good Republican B word.
And then she gets on line on this website and says actually I want this to stay out this is disgusting it's misogynist -- She says remember there was a -- -- that took the time to think this -- and -- bit.
But it took an admin to publish it even if it's taken down -- left to wonder if there's someone out there with a violent fantasy about me and likely other women.
And have a cousin saying it was good news and meg -- the most.
Then he -- it's definitely disgusting disgusting stuff.
And she went on and on and on in her blog about how it's so disgusting.
And it's you know it's a really evil thing to do she was trying to frame conservatives police are saying to do that she did this on -- she did this herself.
To make an entire community on campus look bad.
And -- a.
Then she posts in her in her outraged post where she's allegedly -- -- responding to -- hate post about her to the person who wrote it.
Assuming you're serious get some help.
I encourage you to visit the UW counseling center post haste and conveniently she knows exactly where it is and what the number is let's hope -- is taken advantage of that -- herself.
And sought the help she needs for some sort of weird -- thousands and syndrome where she creates the very affliction.
That she then.
Reports to suffer -- up I mean that the university is saying she did it she did the whole thing.
And now she's facing some sort of charged by the campus police that could potentially wind -- told up to a year in jail is that true.
Yes she's she's -- -- -- a citation for interference for basically saying that she didn't post says and then admitting that she lied about it.
So I mean and she seems to.
May be done this before.
She was she said that she was threatened to had a death threat in 2011.
So who knows what's what's really going on just another example of persecution of conservatives on campus says.
That we see everywhere on campus reform dot org we report on -- we post it.
We see these things happening all the time.
She she filed a lawsuit to try to get.
Bill Ayers on campus and she -- bill heirs of the weather -- other underground domestic terrorist group.
-- he came on campus and she claimed then that she got death threats in response to that then she claims she got a death threat.
And in before in Coulter visited the university all these that odd look how I'm getting targeted.
Because I'm promoting bill -- and I'm opposed -- Coulter death threats coming my way I mean.
It does make you stop and think how much of this if any was truthful.
And how and and what this says about the larger university community if anything.
Right this wasn't just some -- go she had an award winning blog which she's now taken -- She -- had a radio show where she used to talk about rape culture and things like that and this just calls -- -- question anything that she's ever sat.
Here's the crazy thing another crazy thing.
Here's the university's response -- -- of the university saying this was wrong.
She never ship pointed the finger at people politically for something she was making up.
According to our own authorities campus police but this instead was the university's response.
Quote this episode has sparked an important.
Although -- discussion re affirming that the UW community has no tolerance for sexual violence or violence of any type.
The fact that the FaceBook post apparently was a fabrication.
Does not change the necessity for continued vigilance in assuring that we have a campus where everyone.
Feels safe and then the spokesperson -- announce that it is important that this event does not undermine the progress that's been made in this area.
Think about I mean of course nobody -- pilots but it.
What -- they're saying this is almost a good thing.
The right if we should be discussing anything we should be discussing how this is -- another example of conservatives.
Being made out to be enemies on campus as we report on -- -- -- -- reform all the time about a year ago.
A student at university of Minnesota his life was threatened because he was handing out constitutions on campus.
So that's the discussion should be sparked here's how often is this happening this kind of thing now she purposely the police are saying posted -- to try and make a conservative community look disgusting and twisted.
I I mean that this -- sparked an important discussion the college as well way to encourage others to do the same thing.
I should say that there were lawyer she is now even though they claim that she confessed.
It -- claim they have a computer they have the evidence and so on now -- her lawyer she is denying the charges and and is is pleading not guilty so we'll see how that.
Pans out Katherine thanks thank you for having me.
