I hate it when someone who is supposed to be a “Trump Supporter” does something so bizarre and stupid that it plays into the hands of liberals and Trump-haters. Mitchell W. Adkins, 19, reportedly went to the campus of Transylvania University in Kentucky, threatened students, and stabbed two women with a machete.
Adkins is from Cincinnati. He was booked into the Fayette County Detention Center on charges stemming from the attack. He was charged with 1st Degree Assault, Wanton Endangerment 1st (3 counts), and 4th degree Assault.
Did he snap?
He walked into the Jazzman’s Cafe, a University coffee shop on campus, with a “bag of bladed weapons.” Then he proceeded to threaten people by saying “the day of reckoning has come.” Then he asked people if they were a Republican or Democrat, and if they answered Republican, he responded, “You are safe.”
Two women were struck with a machete, but their injuries were non-life-threatening. One was hospitalized, the other was treated at the scene.
Campus security was called and Adkins was taken into custody after a short struggle with the Police Chief and University President. The suspect apparently cut himself and ended up being hospitalized.

Adkins is reportedly a former student of the University who accused the school of discriminating against Conservatives. At this point in time, it’s a university, so what else is new?
This excerpt is from an article he wrote in 2015:
If you’re automatically going to label everything that’s different from your opinion insulting, you are, indeed, a coward for wanting to cop out and exempt yourself from constructive debate. Right-wingers like myself bring arguments and responses to the table (ie, my letter to the editor last year that was horrendously received by the student body) and wish to engage in conversation and get responses. You know, we’re kind of doing that thing Transy espouses of promoting “inclusion”? But no, you’re not inclusive at all. You’re anything but. None of you can stand to listen to some kind of criticism or when we debunk your claims and expect some sort of counter-argument. All these people can reply with are words like “Bigot, hateful, intolerant, ignorant, etc.” So go ahead and enjoy your helicopter rides, I’m sticking to my beliefs.” Mitchell Adkins
This is someone who may have snapped and had a psychotic episode. Does he have a history of mental illness? There is no information yet if he does. But his actions literally did more FOR the liberals by handing them a pile of ammunition with which to beat Conservatives.
Here’s the alleged terrorist who attacked Transylvania university today. Most terrorists in the US look like him. Mitchell W. Adkins. pic.twitter.com/ANdy5YJEjB
