Freedom of speech…who needs it? Apparently, the vast majority at UC Berkeley thinks it’s an unnecessary part of the constitution.
Starting Wednesday night, the Berkely riots have been plastered all over the news. However, just in case you were sleeping during the crazed chaos that erupted at the University, here a summary of what you missed… MILO Yiannopoulos’s event at UC Berkely was canceled, and the venue evacuated over an hour before it was scheduled to begin. Masked left-wing protesters stormed the venue, overturning police barricades and lighting fires.
President Donald Trump reacted to the massive rioting at UC-Berkeley in response to a scheduled campus speech by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Trump wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning.
News of the rioting made cable news last night as students smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper sprayed innocent individuals, and set fires in the street. Others spray-painted the words “Kill Trump” on storefronts.
The speech was canceled by UC-Berkeley police as security failed. Yiannopoulos was evacuated from the area.
“The left is profoundly antithetical to free speech these days, does not want to hear alternative points of view, and will do anything to shut it down,” Yiannopoulos told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in an interview on Wednesday night. “My point is being proven over and over and over again.”
These protesters must face the consequences for their behavior, and that hasn’t happened the last eight years. It is dangerous and unacceptable to assume you can strip anyone’s freedom of speech In America. Maybe the crappy Californians who are unhappy with the election results should consider leaving our country! Maybe Iran?
These liberal snowflakes shut down Milo’s freedom of speech through violence, so yes, they should find out that when grown ups are in political office, there are consequences to your actions! Common sense alert: Free speech goes BOTH ways liberals, not just yours!
MILO said it perfectly: “The Berkeley Riot is Embarrassing for Higher Education”
