Leftist have given up the pretense that they believe in free speech.
On Wednesday night at the University of California at Berkeley leftist and anarchist rioted over a prospective speech by Milo Yiannopoulos.
Many of those dressed black bloc-style so police can’t identify them appear to be associated with the “antifa” movement. Antifa may be short for anti-fascist but these thugs, usually a mix of anarchists and communists, use violent fascistic tactics against their targets. These terrorists do not tolerate opposing views. Before the riots broke out those gathered carried signs that read “hate speech is not free speech.” Signs from the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PLS) also showed up in Berkeley.
Antifa is also involved in the protests and melees at airports nationwide TruthRevolt
In the 1960s, Berkeley campus was the site of the student Free Speech Movement.

On Wednesday night Berkeley betrayed the Free Speech Movement when leftist and anarchist rioted over a prospective speech by Milo Yiannopoulos. Milo’s event was stopped by police and Milo was evacuated from the Berkeley campus. What ensued was violent destruction of property, fires, and Milo supporters beaten in the streets. A disgusting display of how intolerant and fascist the left on campus has become.

President Trump has weighed in via Twitter, stating that he will withdraw federal funds from UC Berkeley if they can’t maintain free speech principles. That’s perfectly appropriate. Spray-painting “KILL TRUMP” on walls, smashing ATMs, assaulting people – that’s not appropriate behavior in any civilized society. And for those doing the spraypainting and smashing and assaulting to proclaim that they’re anti-fascist is patently insane. Forget Yiannopoulos – the issue is the left. And they’re out of control.
