UC Berkeley cancels right-wing provocateur’s talk amid violent protest
Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 2, 2017
A protest at UC Berkeley over a scheduled appearance by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos turned fiery and violent Wednesday night, prompting police to cancel the event and hustle the Breitbart News editor off campus.
But even after the event’s cancellation, hundreds of protesters spilled off campus into the city streets, where the violence continued as they confronted drivers, engaged in fights, smashed storefront windows and set fires.
Protesters decried President Trump’s policies as much as they did the visit by Yiannopoulos, a gay conservative who has been making the rounds at college campuses across the country with his “Dangerous Faggot” talks, specializing in remarks meant to insult, offend and disgust liberals who disagree with his ideas.
This is how progressives battle hate and violence. They make Soros proud.
They obviously didn’t know Milo does take questions from anyone. Maybe they don’t like Milo because he is gay!
Conservatives need to take protest efficiency lessons from this lot. They may get a few more seconds of air time.
Be seeing you
