London’s Clash: Ben Bergquam Faces Death Threats at University Amid Islamic Activism Concerns

During a recent visit to the University of London, Ben Bergquam, host of “Real American’s Voice” and “Law and Border,” found himself at the center of a heated confrontation with a group of protestors. Bergquam, who was in London to cover Nigel Farage’s campaign, encountered a hostile crowd identifying themselves as pro-Palestine and anti-Israel.

The incident, captured on video and shared on social media, shows Bergquam being threatened with violence, specifically being told he would be “shanked in the neck.” This event has sparked a broader discussion about freedom of speech, the right to peaceful assembly, and the challenges faced by conservative voices in academia.

Bergquam, known for his conservative views and outspoken criticism of left-leaning ideologies, has been a vocal supporter of Israel. His visit to the university was intended to shed light on the global connections between political movements and their support bases. However, his presence was met with hostility, leading to a confrontation that has gained significant attention online.


The incident raises questions about the limits of free speech and the responsibility of institutions to ensure the safety of all individuals on their premises. While peaceful protest is a fundamental right, threats of violence against journalists or anyone expressing differing opinions are unacceptable and should be condemned.

Bergquam’s experience also highlights the challenges faced by conservative voices in academic settings, which are often perceived as dominated by liberal ideologies. The confrontation at the University of London underscores the need for open dialogue and respect for diverse viewpoints, even when they are controversial or unpopular.

The incident has also brought attention to the growing Islamic activism in London. Recent reports and observations by journalists and politicians, such as US Rep. Chip Roy, have raised concerns about the rate of change in the city, with some warning of a “massive Muslim takeover.” These concerns are rooted in the increasing Muslim population in London, which is largely attributed to immigration and demographic changes.

The Parallel Islamic Society in London, highlighted in a 2021 Economist article, reflects these demographic changes. The first mosques in Britain were established in Liverpool in 1887 and Woking in 1889. Since then, the number of mosques has grown to nearly 2,000, serving over 3 million Muslims. In some areas with high Muslim populations, multiple mosques can be found on the same street, reflecting the development of parallel societies within parts of Muslim Britain.

We will cover Bergquam’s journey around London, as he posts more details.
