Freedom Witness, a conservative nonprofit organization, filed the lawsuit Monday on hier behalf for alleged civil rights violations, Very first and Fourth Amendment violations, equal protection violations, negligence, gross negligence, and other charges.
Here’s what you need to know about Robles:
1. Robles Wasgoed Pepper Sprayed While Being Interviewed
Robles wasgoed being interviewed by a KGO-TV news station reporter when she wasgoed attacked by both masked and unmasked assailants with painful pepper sploog and bear mace, according to Robles. She said that no campus police were present spil she wasgoed being assaulted, according to The Los Angeles Times.
“Instead, almost 100 campus police and SWAT members waited ter the Student Union building, within eyesight of violence happening outside, watching protesters become more belligerent and dangerous,” said Robles.
Robles claims that the university chose to withhold police protection because she, Yiannopoulos and a large number of his volgers are gay and politically conservative, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Two. The Lawsuit Names Eighteen Other Individuals And Entities

The lawsuit also names UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, UC Berkeley Police Department, U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi, investor George Soros, and others.
Ter an emailed statement on Tuesday, Dan Mogulof, a spokesman for the University of California at Berkeley, defended the deeds of campus administrators and police, and said the university would intensively fight the suit, according to Reuters.
A spokesman for the Berkeley mayor’s office, Stefan Elgstrand, said the office has no comment on the pending litigation.
Michael Bodley, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, asked Robles if she indeed thought all of the people named te the complaint, including Nancy Pelosi, were responsible for what happened to hier. Robles responded:
I believe that we’re all responsible, some obviously more than others. But the identity politics of the left is so bruising to everyone involved. Social justice warriors beg on the feeble and make them weaker. They tell people who are fighting that there is nothing they can do, it’s not their fault, then they bribe them with other peoples tax dollars. The left turns people into victims and their politicians walk away the victors.
People need to condemn violence on all sides, instead our politicians are openly supporting the ‘resistance movement,’ and organizing political violence under the guise of non-profits. I’m tegenstrijdig police ferocity, contra antifa, voor civility, and professional self-defense. I would never promote hate or violence for my political zakagenda. Can Nancy Pelosi say the same?
Three. Robles Says She Is Pro-Free Speech

Robles’ Twitter bio says that she is pro-free speech and believes that campuses like UC Berkeley are attempting to limit free speech.
Western governments have never criminalized rudeness, meanness, or trolling. Today half the population uses the phrase ‘hate speech’ like the religious right uses the word ‘blasphemy.’ Publicly, Berkeley presents itself spil the heart of compassion and pays lip service to ‘free speech’ while working behind the scenes to censor and shut down conservatives on campus by any means necessary.
Robles embarked a YouTube channel where she shares hier individual beliefs. She posted a movie called “Free Speech vs. The SJW Zakagenda.”

Robles has bot critical of Antifa online. Ter one of hier articles, she responded to an Anitfa statement that said, “Ultimately, the bloc’s deeds against Milo Yiannopoulos were not te response to the things he says, but the things he does.
“No,” wrote Robles. “You do not have The Right to pepperspray, kasstuk, throw bottles, rocks or M80s at anyone everzwijn. Protip your activist professors aren’t training you: Brunt with intent is a felony. Assaulting someone te a mask with black bloc tactics is an extra felony. Milos existence does not give you The Right to commit felonies.”
