Fascist-leftists demand no free speech, physically attacks pro-free speech Trump supporters at Berkeley. The violence is entirely one-sided with leftists attacking the American flag. The leftist chant is ‘Fuck Donald Trump’ which is obscene yet they want no free speech. The fools.
The violent left then confronts the police and yell ‘Fuck the police’. The pro-Trump students cheer the cops as they show up. A reporter asks, ‘Why are you here?’ and the students for Trump say, ‘This is for free speech.’
The students are behind a cement wall to protect themselves from violent Hillary supporters. Some DNC supporters steal one of the Trump supporter’s flags and tramples on it, and others demand, ‘Burn that flag’ as it is stolen.
Another violent man on the left tries to steal the camera phone of the Trump people and then scream ‘How dare you come over here,’ as he retrieves his own phone, they then assail him physically, and others demand the students, ‘Come down here and fight.’
The police, who showed up, retreated leaving the students alone as leftists assail them more and more violently. I hope the campus Republicans sue the school for not protecting them properly.
The leftists chant, ‘Go home’ to students to stop them from practicing free speech, some of them do flee the violence, sticks are thrown at them, as it grows more violent and still not cops. The leftist fascists get bolder and bolder seeing the students aren’t being protected.
I am no longer there, so I can’t do anything about this, but I pray the parents of the students being attacked, sue the school for not protecting free speech and letting violent mobs attack their children.
Later on, the violent left burns everything as the Trump supporters flee the raging violence. At 41 minutes into this leftist riot, the police move in and arrest nobody. They just stand there but at least the burning, stealing, flag stomping ends and the Trump supporters finally get to have their rally in peace.
We hear in the distance the raging and howling of the crazy left as it goes off to attack the rest of the campus.
Seeing that the police are not doing anything, the raging left drifts back in to attack again. They surround the police who become increasingly nervous. One rioter is taken down and arrested. The leftists get hot about this.
‘Let him go,’ chant the rioters. They openly menace the police. One of the cops that showed up a minute earlier, has a rifle and not just night sticks. ‘You fucking traitors, ‘ yell the violent, anti-USA rioters. These leftist call the cops many names. Instead of arresting them for ‘inciting a riot’ the cops retreat again.
I was charged with ‘inciting a riot’ only that was a false charge. I called on the people to stand back and be calm. I was the only one NOT calling for a riot. The police and the city agreed with me, I shouldn’t have been arrested and they apologized.
Where were the administrators of this ‘school’??? They should have been there to order the rioters to stop, they should have given a speech about what real ‘freedom of speech’ means. They are cowards and stupidly think by hiding, they won’t have the school burned to the ground?
The Trump students won this battle, that is, they stood their ground while under sustained attack and near-zero legal protection and that took real, real bravery. We should all salute them for being this brave. I have had the bad experience of a number of violent leftists shaking fists at me and screaming, ‘Shut her up!’ because I was saying things the left didn’t want to hear, namely, warning them they were screwing up things.
It was over the subject of burning the US flag, no less. I said, ‘Don’t do it, you will lose if you do it,’ etc. They wanted to do it and did it and lost the battle for hearts and minds. Mindless stupidity, it was…utterly stupid but it was their choice to be stupid.
The obscenities flowing from free speech babies is amazing, it used to be, if you used obscenities on campus, you were stopped. Now, it flows like a sewer and the administrators hide. Donald Trump threatens to stop UC Berkeley funding after riots: and I hope he does.
Berkeley Riots & Milo Yiannopoulos: California Mayor, Lieutenant Governor Make Appalling Statements | National Review now supports ‘free speech’, I wish they did back in 1966.
In the United States of America, rioting to stop free speech is unlawful and reprehensible. Period. Full stop. It’s not “understandable.” It’s not excusable. There should be no tolerance and no sympathy for people who pepper-spray young women, beat bystanders senseless, and tear up property because they’re mad that another human being is speaking.
Yesterday’s riot was much smaller than the previous leftist riot. But it was just as dangerous for the leftists now know, no one will save their victims if they get enough people to attack.
Last night’s spectacle in Berkeley, Calif., was disgraceful. In response to a planned speech by Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos, a “peaceful” protest turned rapidly violent, and by late evening on the East Coast, television and Twitter were filling up with images of people and property being attacked by black-clad thugs, part of the so-called “black bloc” and “antifa” (anti-fascist) movements.
What you’ll notice (and what you’ll experience, if you ever find yourself in the middle of violent left-wing protest) is that the rioters and the “peaceful” protesters have a symbiotic relationship. The rioters break people and destroy things, then melt back into a crowd that often quickly and purposefully closes behind them. They’re typically cheered wildly (to be sure, some yell at them to stop) and often treated as heroes by the rest of the mob — almost like they’re the SEAL Team Six of left-wing protest.
So all are guilty of these crimes.
Law enforcement should prioritize identifying, locating, and arresting members of the black bloc, and it should treat them as the political terrorists they are.
The governor of California is Jerry Brown, it ain’t gonna happen. He refused to protect the students at Berkeley who were being attacked by school staff, fellow students and outside agitators. He said nothing to the victims, never apologized to Milo, nothing.
Let California burn to the ground. If the people there don’t want to stop this, they deserve what they get next. Here is the mayor of Berkeley one month ago when he gave the green light to riot:
That’s an impressive amount of dangerous ignorance in one tweet. Speech can’t “silence” anyone. It might hurt feelings. It might make people angry. But it can’t “silence.” This is a common tactic of the hard Left. By equating speech with censorship, they justify their actual censorship as somehow “protecting” the community.
Everything hurts leftist feelings. The slightest suggestion sends them all into a fit of infantile rage. They then attack physically and then whine, their feelings are still hurt. This is called ‘being a bully.’
The thing that is so galling — and so destructive — is that we know that if the ideology of the rioters were flipped, if they were wearing #MAGA hats, the entire university world, the mainstream media, and every Democratic politician alive would be united in a full-throated declaration that the apocalypse was upon us, that “Trump’s America” was unequivocally a dark, violent, and hateful place…
The DNC is insane. They don’t know that this can backfire badly for these leftists hate the DNC a great deal and want to kill them. This Washington Post Bezos article goes on to talk about Milo and how he got censored before dirt digging tried to bury him:
That leads some to argue that his speech is being censored. Others counter that universities aren’t required to pay security and other expenses when students invite speakers.
Yes, threats of violence against speakers should be encouraged. If enough people threaten to be violent, then the schools can stop a speech. Allowing students this option is evil for obvious reasons. I have been assailed by violent leftist students and Black Panthers on campuses when giving speeches in the past! I know EXACTLY how it feels.
Dear Washington Post, there are actually binding legal precedents on this very issue. When public universities charge students prohibitive “insurance” or “security” fees as a condition of permitting controversial speech on campus, they break the law. Here’s the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 1992 case called Forsyth County v. Nationalist Movement: “Speech cannot be financially burdened, any more than it can be punished or banned, simply because it might offend a hostile mob.” So, yes, “some” do argue that prohibitive fees for controversial speech represent censorship. The “some” include justices of the Supreme Court.
The University has the right to photograph students who attack legal speakers on campus, or who assail legal students, and have them ejected permanently. This will squelch it fast. Any staff supporting riots should be fired. This is the only way to stop this mess. On the other hand, we still have no ‘free speech’.
Anything anyone says even in private, if it isn’t PC, they get fired. So right now, our ‘free speech’ is somewhere around zero. I am retired and before that, self-employed so I enjoyed and still enjoy ‘free speech’ but whenever I argued with any media giant in the past, and I did, they would ban me if I won the argument.
Yes, people who are unpersuasive are kept as pets while people who can marshal real arguments and win are banned. Always, this is the case everywhere, left or right, on the internet. But at least I still have this open site.
Except for when readers attack each other or use obscenities unnecessarily, even they are not banned, just cautioned. And they, SO FAR, cooperate and I hope this remains in the future, thank you for this! I hope everyone understands why. Interesting comment:

Actually, Milo said that the UC Regents allow alt-views, but at the last minute, they will impose a huge “security” fee on the group, making it financially impractical to have a speaker. This is what Berkeley did at the last minute stating that the Yound Republicans had to provide extra security at their cost. Fortunately, a private donor paid it, yet, this still happened. Great article.
