The event was called off at 6:15 p.m. amid violent protests and fires erupting outside the event, where hundreds protesters gathered outside the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union Building.

Tensions rose shortly after a group of protesters wearing bandanas set fire to wood pallets and debris near a barricade. Protesters threw fireworks in the direction of police officers, who wore full riot gear and returned fire with tear gas. A light generator was knocked down and set on fire, where demonstrators surrounded the blaze with their signs in the air. Metal barricades set around the building were chucked into windows.

UC Berkeley cancels Breitbart provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos event as protests turn violent

This is protesters shutting down free speech. Period.

Can they not see the hypocrisy? Do they not understand what they are doing and how it is viewed?

Insanity.

The Left claims to "fight oppression" so that they can be the Oppressors.

I think this is past the left right paradigm at this point. These folks are directly against the very words of the constitution. Supporting or upholding or pushing and ideology with violence is ________?

The Free Speech Movement


The Free Speech Movement (FSM) was a college campus phenomenon inspired first by the struggle for civil rights and later fueled by opposition to the Vietnam War. The Free Speech Movement began in 1964, when students at the University of California, Berkeley protested a ban on on-campus political activities. The protest was led by several students, who also demanded their right to free speech and academic freedom. The FSM sparked an unprecedented wave of student activism and involvement.


I am so confused.
Does Berkeley support Free Speech?
Or... what?
What happened to them?

Free speech under their "approved" methods and lists.

I was reading somewhere??? That these protesters are anarchists causing this but we all know it's the tolerant progressives who are causing this.

Are they rioting in a permitted free speech zone ?



I foresee a new "permitted enforcement" zone soon.

Once they break laws and go against the constitution, they are technically anarchists. They could still place themselves within the left/dem/prog sphere but their actions arent.

Unless I'm missing some groups that are actively doing this for anarchists sake. Any proof/links by chance?

If politicians in California get their way, it will become a Sanctuary State. The Berkley protestors will be joined by lots of like-minded law breakers. If we're really lucky, California will EXIT the USA, after attracting a few million criminals.

There's a reason why people shut down free speech, because their arguments aren't as strong as their oppositions. They know if people hear the other side of the debate, they will lose support.

Disgusting.

The school is rewarding the violent rioter terrorists.

All this is being encouraged by the media, celebrities and democrat politicians.

This is what real fascism looks like.

This is where the real nazi brown shirts analogy applies.

The voting class saw this for what it is. Part of the reason for our current POTUS. There just is no real explanation for this sort of hypocrisy.

What that trash is doing is not protesting. It is rioting.
