A trans activist berated students representing Turning Point USA (TPUSA) at University of Washington, calling them “Nazis” and accusing them of supporting the genocide of trans kids.
TPUSA field representative Rachel Anderson filmed the exchange during which the activist — who was wearing a black N95 face mask — approached their table, which was set up in an outdoor public space. The activist then proceeded to scold Anderson the other members present — and attack their organization — before flipping the table over, knocking pamphlets and buttons to the ground.

“Yeah, you just support the genocide of trans kids,” the activist began, and one of the TPUSA members responded simply “no,” while another told the activist that she was making an assumption without actually knowing anything about them.
“That’s such an assumption, right. With all of this s***. Right,” the activist replied, pointing to the table and the information laid out across it.
“What is anti-trans on the table?” one member asked. Much of what was on the table was clearly visible in the video — including a number of copies of the United States Constitution and some buttons that read, “I’m pro-choice. Pick your gun.”
The activist did not answer the question, instead saying, “You’re TPUSA, you dumb b***es. Whatever.”
Apparently deciding that the conversation was over, the activist then flipped the table over entirely and dumped the contents onto the ground. “Get the f*** off my campus, you Nazis,” the activist, walking away.
The TPUSA members could be heard as the recording continued, saying that they should call campus security — and one called after the activist, shouting, “I have it on camera.” The activist turned back briefly and shouted something unintelligible at them before walking away.
Anderson later revealed that the incident took place while prospective students were touring the campus — and that they had seemed surprised to see such behavior in real life.
“The incident took place in front of a tour of potential students to the University, and several of those students expressed to me that they were in shock to see it in real life. I think we changed minds with just that interaction live in front of them. The potential students also helped us pick up and took materials,” Anderson said.
This incident follows a recent TPUSA event at San Francisco State University during which former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines was forced to barricade herself in a locked room for safety when trans activists began harassing her and blocked her exit.
