Connecticut state law permits the use of “reasonable physical force” to recover stolen property. Nevertheless, it was Wintrich who ended up being arrested at the event.

The Connecticut Democratic party put out a statement on social media condemning Wintrich for “violence” and “white supremacy.”

This is despicable, and Connecticut Democrats condemn this violence — and the white supremacy Mr. Wintrich was peddling — in the strongest possible terms. https://t.co/df0ed7H60S

Wintrich’s speech was titled “It’s OK To Be White,” a nod to the viral, largely anonymous grassroots campaign aimed at exposing left-wing racism on university campuses.

The speech was met with disruptive protests from left-wingers on campus, who chanted “Go home Nazi” at Wintrich, who is openly gay and of Polish and Jewish ancestry.

According to pictures from campus reporter Rebecca Lurye, windows at Wintrich’s event were also smashed. It is not currently known if any of the vandals have been arrested.
