New Orleans – Peyton Lofton is a chapter leader for Turning Point USA (TPUSA) and a member of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) at Tulane University in Louisiana. Someone on an anti-YAL account doxxed him, forcing him to take down his Linked-in account. Then someone set fire to his dorm room door.
Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, “sounded the alarm” on Saturday, and tweeted:
“This is Peyton Lofton, our chapter leader for TPUSA at Tulane. He was recently doxxed by the violent left for being a conservative. Last night his dorm room door was literally SET ON FIRE after he was doxxed. The violent left is targeting students!”

This is Peyton Lofton, our chapter leader for @TPUSA at Tulane
He was recently doxxed by the violent left for being a conservative
Last night his dorm room door was literally SET ON FIRE after he was doxxed
The violent left is targeting students!
The damage doesn’t look major according to the photos. Was the perpetrator a student at the university?
“It’s a sad day in America when radical activists are lighting dorm room doors on fire because they disagree with you politically. I’m proud of the work I’m doing on and off campus with YAL and TPUSA to bring students to the principles of the Constitution and individual liberty. This only encourages me to continue the battle to reach my classmates with the message of freedom.” Peyton Lofton
Donald Trump Jr weighed in on the issue when he asked, “Wonder if the media will report this horrible crime against a campus conservative?”

The situation came just a day after the President signed an Executive Order that was supposed to guarantee free speech on the nation’s college and university campuses. The order states that schools that suppress free speech can lose their Federal research grant money.
Tulane University is a research school in New Orleans, Louisiana. Wonder if they’ll move to do anything about this doxxing and arson or will they ignore it and risk their research funding?
The President was said to also be working to remove “free speech zones” on campuses as well. Good luck with that. College/university administrators across the nation are scared of any kind of disruption, and refuse to allow anything remotely resembling “free speech.” Their precious snowflakes might be offended.
