It’s good to see the tolerant left engaging in civil debate with stances they don’t agree with in a calm educational setting.
That was sarcasm in case you couldn’t tell…
For those that don’t know, an alt-right Breitbart news editor, Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak at Berkley tonight.
Instead of voicing their opinions through debate, peaceful protests, or public education/awareness efforts, the students of Berkley chose to create the scene pictured above. The rioters started fires, threw moltov cocktails, lit fireworks in buildings, and ultimately destroyed a lot of both public and private property.
Their main goal? To seemingly silence Yiannopoulos from voicing his message to those who wanted to listen.
What did they accomplish instead? They destroyed their own campus. On top of that, they ensured hours of coverage for Milo on numerous news networks across the country; they’ve only amplified his voice a thousandfold.
I by no means agree with Yiannopoulos’ ideals, but this is simply unacceptable. Universities are meant to be a place for free speech and healthy intellectual conversations.
What if I were to tell you that you can disagree with someone, and not create literal dumpster fires?
Antifa attacking eachother during Berkeley protest For… Being white
You’re still white.
You’re still responsible.
This is your fault.
You’re inherently racist.
It’s in your blood.
It’s in your DNA.
Change your behavior, spend time and energy doing what they demand, devote yourself to their cause. It doesn’t matter. At the end of the day the problem in their eyes is simply what you are, despite of what you do.
*unless that free speech is not preapproved and accepted by the radical leftists that run this Communist institution.
**if preapproval is not granted our liberal hounds, and their antifa friends, will threaten your personal safety in order to intimidate you into silence.
***if preapproval is not granted, and you decide to risk your own life, our university police will stand down and sit in their squad cars eating doughnuts and making jokes (at your expense) while our liberal army beats the ever-loving crap out of you.
****free speech is awesome!
