On Saturday, March 23, students at Tulane University doxxed Turning Point USA chapter leader Peyton Lofton. This caused, according to Lofton, other classmates to set fire to Lofton’s dorm room door.
While information involving the reason behind this attack was not released, there is suspicion that it revolves around Lofton’s involvement with Turning Point USA and Young Americans for Liberty.
SICK AND DANGEROUS:
This is Peyton Lofton, our chapter leader for @TPUSA at Tulane
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!

Young Americans for Liberty released a statement from Lofton regarding the attack later that day, saying, “It’s a sad day in America when radical activists are lighting dorm room doors on fire because they disagree with you politically… This only encourages me to continue the battle to reach my classmates with the message of freedom.”

The attack injured no one. However, it threatened the lives of every member of that dorm room building. Tulane University policed have arrested 3 suspects as of March 23.
Each member of the trio faces one count of aggravated arson, involving the damaging of property by an explosive or fire. The assailants will be facing 6 to 20 years in prison as well as a $25,000 fine.
