Shelby Shoup an intern for Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has been arrested and charged with battery after she threw a chocolate milk drink on a group of College Republicans tabling on campus.
The extreme far-left student activist who went on a profanity-laced meltdown is listed on LinkedIn as an Andrew Gillum intern and a member of FSU Students for Justice in Palestine.
Andrew Gillum’s did not return a request for comment.
A portion of the exchange with Shelby Shoup and the College Republicans on campus was caught on camera.
“You are supporting Nazis,” Shoup said in the video posted online. “Do you understand that?”
Another student snapped back noticing that Shoup was wearing a communist pin: “And you are supporting communism?”
She replied: “Yeah, I f***ing am.”
“Don’t pour your coffee on me,” he said.
But Shoup replied, “F*** you. I will,” before she opened her chocolate milk and threw it on him.
Shelby Shoup then went on a profanity-laced tirade about fascism and accused the students of “normalizing Nazis” and blaming them for the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre and other incidents.
As She stormed off, she is seen kicking a DeSantis sign out of the ground.
Once made aware, the FSU College Republicans called it an “alarming display of the extremely charged political environment that has arisen across America in recent months and years.
“No person, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum, should be targeted and assaulted because of their political beliefs. We are glad that no serious physical harm came to our Vice-Membership Chair and will always stand up for the basic rights and respect that every one of our members is endowed.”
FSU said the student was identified, arrested, and charged with battery in a statement Friday morning.
FSU is a diverse community that values and respects each person. FSU expects each member of the community to embrace the values of civility and ethical conduct and obey the law. Regarding Tuesday's incident, the individual was identified, arrested and charged with battery.— Florida State University (@floridastate) November 2, 2018
