Comedian chokes up on Tucker when asked about event with student spitting on him

Comedian Alex Stein’s effort to appear at a Pennsylvania university Monday was met by the all-too-common activist protest that led to its eventual cancellation.

But after one unhinged leftist resorted to spitting on him, the “fearless” BlazeTV contributor used the “sad reality” of the apparent assault as a segue on how the government is “spitting on us every day.”

The comedian known for brutally mocking woke ideology at city council meetings was fresh off the cancellation of a planned event at Penn State University with commentator Gavin McInnes when he joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson on his eponymous program Tuesday night to address the protest.

Before bringing Stein on, the host shared a clip of the student who grew so enraged that she spat on him, “If you haven’t seen this video, pay close attention to the girl who spits on Alex Stein and ask yourself if you can’t picture her wearing a Khmer Rouge uniform executing people. You probably can.”

The full video posted by the comedian gives a taste of how aggressive the crowd grew as many protesters shouted expletives and got directly in Stein’s face before he was later escorted away by police officers.

Warning: Language

“Is that okay at Penn State, spitting on people?” Carlson asked, “Well we asked the president of Penn State, Neeli Bendapudi, who makes $1.3 million a year at a public university, about that–seems like criminal behavior on her campus–what do you think of this? But she wouldn’t say. She’s taking a pass. Apparently, she endorses it.”

The comedian offered, “This is an indoctrination camp. From middle school to high school to college, these kids are radicalized to have these leftist ideologies that are not beneficial to society. So these people actually, literally spit and assault us in public and they’re defended by their administrator. So this is the sad reality which we live in.”

Shortly thereafter, Stein got choked up as he revealed some of his motivation behind engaging in his style of conservative activism against the advance of progressivism and explained, “A lot of people after this protest footage went viral, they say, ‘Alex, you’re fearless. Don’t you get scared when you go in front of these protesters?’ and I wanna say this: Today is October 25, I don’t want to get emotional. my mother died one year ago today and she died in my arms from the protocols in the hospital, given Remdesivir without my authority.”

“So watching my mom die, there’s nothing scarier than that,” he went on. “So me seeing a bunch of idiot college kids spit on me and yell at me, I have no fear, and that’s what I want to try to express to the people out there. She spit on me, but the government and these people that are in power are spitting on us every day and telling us it’s raining. So all I want to do is try to wake people up to the harsh reality which we live in, Tucker.”

Meanwhile, the day after the event had been canceled, Bendapudi appeared to attempt to take both sides in her statement of support for “the fundamental constitutional right of free speech and free expression of all members of our community.

“I am so proud of our students who organized an alternative event to register their disapproval of these speakers, and their disavowal of their hateful messages,” she said before detailing how she had gathered with “several hundred faculty, staff, students and community leaders” inside for an “event that reaffirmed our unity.”

“Other individuals chose to assemble outside the venue and also exercise their right to free speech in opposition to the invited speakers. It is my understanding that Alex Stein (co-host with Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes) entered the peaceful protest and this action raised the tension,” the president contended seemingly dismissing the nature of the students who were seeking to shut down the event. “It is unclear which individuals onsite then resorted to physical confrontation and to using pepper spray against others in the crowd, including against police officers.”

Though he may not have broken through to the radical crowd at Penn State, Stein’s appearance did usher in the birth of a whole new set of memes.
