Former Kentucky swimming star Riley Gaines was attacked Thursday night during a speech at San Francisco State University.
Following her speech at an event for saving women’s sports, the outspoken female swimmer tweeted she was “ambushed and physically hit twice by a man.”
“She told me she was hit multiple times by a guy in a dress. I was shaking. It made me that mad. It makes me sick to feel so helpless about it. She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress,” her husband Louis Barker told Fox News.
Gaines has been outspoken about biological males competing against real women, specifically transgender swimmer Lia Thomas. That’s without question what prompted the outrage Thursday night.
Riley Gaines targeted by massive mob.
In a video shared by Gaines and others circulating social media, an outraged mob chased her down as police attempted to get her to safety as quickly as possible.
People can be heard shouting “trans rights are human rights” and other comments as police attempt to shield Gaines from more violence.
The videos of Gaines being rushed to safety are nothing short of terrifying as people attempt to get to her.
It’s not clear in the videos who the attacker was, but it is clear the situation would have quickly escalated if police weren’t there.
Even after leaving a room, the mob attempted to follow her and police down a hallway until she was finally in a secure location.
Gaines’ attack is a sign of a sad state of affairs in America.
This is just the latest example that free speech and diversity of thought are under attack in America. Riley Gaines simply believes women should have protected spaces. The former Kentucky swimmer doesn’t want biological males dominating female sports.
That’s something many Americans agree with. There are basic biological differences that can’t be ignored.
Yet, if you say that and support women’s rights, you now risk facing down a pissed off mob capable of anything. Gaines has guts of steel for even showing up to San Francisco State University and impressively maintained her composure when all hell broke loose.
People shouting down campus speakers can’t be tolerated and the knee must never be bent. This is the United States of America. Healthy and respectful disagreement is a cornerstone in our society. The country is in huge trouble if we lose it. Hopefully, Gaines is okay. This kind of chaos simply can’t be tolerated.

Unfortunately, the only way to cut through this is violence. These people need to be socked in the head. There’s no reasoning with them. The only form of communication that they’re going to understand is pushing their wigs back. Same applies to Antifa.
Yeah I’m not usually big on violence. I’ve always been more of a “bring people together” type of person. Unfortunately, I think it’s time to start feeding people their teeth to see how strong their virtue signal really is.
Yep. Start busting a couple heads and a lot of this will go away.
She should file assault charges. Shouldn’t be too hard to find the person that hit her. Of course the prosecutor won’t move forward with charging the assailant.
I’ve had it with this Trans BS. I am fully convinced that 99% of the time is it a mental issue, not an actual condition. These activists are THE WORST. My daughter plays lacrosse. At least one of her teammate’s parents have told their daughter that if there is a boy claiming to be a girl, she is to play by the boys rules, even if it results in a penalty. If you aren’t familiar with the rules differences, that basically means instead of no contact, contact is fine. I told my daughter if she wants to play that same way, I will not stop her. This is BS & it’s time the majority step up and tell these people to shut the F up. I’m all for living your life, but accept the consequences that come with that. Idiot democrats want to remove ALL consequences for everything. That’s what you have to do when your supports are usually too stupid to know their elbow from their a**holes.
Agree 100% and the targeting of children with the drag queen shows is beyond insanity the leftist when society gives a little want to take it to the extreme.
