Yvette Falarca national organiser of BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) being interviewed about the Berkeley riots
Ill start with a subjective statement of that chick had some scary eyes, there was a fervour and intensity that given the subject matter has me genuinely worried, you can see she actually revels in the use of and prospect for violence.
Shes lost all touch with reality and is now perpetually the oppressed victim so all actions and violence is not only acceptable but applauded.
I think this woman is a fanatic, the thing that got me most about the video was not once did she actually highlight anything she disagreed with Milo on she just calls him a fascist, a white supremacist and a racist.
What I find ironic is that her tactics are straight out of mein kampf, keep the message simple, dont give them facts give them labels and something to hate.
A couple of highlights from the vid for me were her eyes nearly bulging out of her head when the host asks if maybe all the violence backfired because though they did stop 500 people from hearing Milo talk they also exposed him to an international audience of millions who wouldnt have heard of him otherwise.
Her response is golden
Also the part where she blames the college dean for the violence and vandalism as he didnt listen to the couple hundred letters calling for the talk to be cancelled, this even though the shops that were vandalised were blocks away.
After watching this Im on the fence as to whether these people are paid agitators just earning a pay check or if they are actual psychopaths who are using the situation (any situation) and peoples emotions as an excuse to fulfill there own personal violence fetish.
Their agenda to stop people going to events or hearing a point of view with threats of violence is the definition of terrorism, how are they able to get away with it?
The only positive I can see in all of this is that these people are in the minority, its not long until everyone including non rabid leftists and Trump haters get sick of these tactics and the violence they bring and Trump wont mess around.
The hammer will come down hard and most people will feel it justified, it will be interesting to see a situation where over 80% of the US public is at odds with what the MSM narrative will be
In 2005, the American Civil Liberties Union reported that in 2002 the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) identified BAMN as "thought to be involved in terrorist activities." The FBI acknowledged in the report that the Michigan State Police had information that BAMN has been peaceful in the past. According to the FBI, the group's protests were discussed in a meeting about alleged links to terrorist organizations. In response to the monitoring of BAMN and other non-violent groups, the Executive Director of Michigan's ACLU Kary Moss said that the FBI "posed a 'threat to legitimate dissent.'"

Meh, if they keep breaking their own stuff it's fine.
I thought her claims of fascism were funny and hypocritical given the fact that they used fascist tactics. This one is dense.
Oh, and the it's not our fault was pretty classic as well.
