A male feminist was caught on video last month stealing pro-life crosses belonging to the Students for Life chapter at Whatcom Community College in Washington. The young man, while offering snarky remarks and smirking, repeatedly denied requests from pro-life students to put their property back — the group had a permit for the area. But soon after he walked off with the crosses, the thief encountered a man who appeared to be an administrator at the college and scurried to give back the crosses.
“Can you leave those alone, please?” asks one of the female pro-life students shown in the video, as the man picks up as many pro-life crosses as he can. “Those are ours.”
“Nope,” he answers, continuing to steal their property.
The pink crosses make up a display known as the Cemetery of the Innocents; each cross commemorates the life of a baby killed by abortion.
“We have permission to be here,” a pro-lifer informs the man. “You’re like a broken record, aren’t you?” he responds.
The pro-life students offer to engage in discussion about abortion with the man when he informs them that he doesn’t like their “message.” But, of course, he does not want to talk. Instead, he continues to steal their property.
“Pro-life arguments have about as much merit as, like, flat-Earth arguments,” he claims, later adding that he “fundamentally [disagrees] with what all of your guys’ arguments are based off of, so there’s really no point.”
“I can’t do that?” he mocks their calls to stop stealing. “Then what’s stopping me right now? How am I still doing this? This is incredible. I didn’t even think I could carry this many.”
When a male pro-life student stands in front of him, the thief snarks, “Dude, I’ve got reach. I’m like Kareem, you’re not blocking me.”
After gathering as many crosses as he can, he walks toward a building on campus. But when he’s met by an apparent administrator, the male feminist immediately drops the tough-guy act and returns all the crosses.
“Thank you,” the school official tells him. “You don’t have to agree with them, but you do have to give them the same access everybody else has.”
According to Greg Piper at The College Fix, Students for Life of America communications director Matt Lamb said the pro-life group will not press charges against the thief, noting that he returned the crosses and is not an official at the school.
Whatcom Community College is apparently aware of the incident, but is seemingly in no hurry to hold the man accountable:
A spokesperson for the college told The Fix Friday that it was “aware of the situation” but would not otherwise comment because of “the on-going investigation,” which is now a month old. She did not even answer whether vandalizing an authorized display is a violation of any campus code.
The Safety & Security office has not responded to a request to provide any documentation it has of the incident.
In March, a feminist was similarly caught stealing crosses from a pro-life display organized by Students for Life at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, before police officers stepped in.
