It's no secret the Left has lost its mind.
I suppose it should come as no surprise that a simple speech by Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley would be used as an excuse for Leftist thugs to riot.
These violent thugs destroyed property to prevent Yiannopoulos from speaking.
Through their lawlessness, they succeeded, shutting down free speech. Utter intolerance.
Yes, the Left has lost its mind.
From FOX News:
Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos said Wednesday that the riot that canceled his planned speech at the University of California-Berkeley was "heavily ironic and very, I think, self-defeating for the social justice left."This was no peaceful protest. It wasn't a demonstration. This was a riot. Violence was used to cause chaos, and ultimately, squelch free speech.
Yiannopoulos' planned talk was scrapped after violent protesters hurled smoke bombs, broke windows and started a bonfire outside the student union where he was to appear.
"No one’s safety is at risk from different opinions," Yiannopoulos told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" in a phone interivew. "No one’s physical safety is endangered by political ideas from a speaker on campus, but universities have sort of allowed this stuff to happen, and even in some cases encouraged it."
The Berkeley appearance was to be the 32-year-old's last stop on a nationwide college tour that has sparked protests and occasional violence. Yiannopoulos told Carlson that he believes the protesters view him as a proxy for President Donald Trump, whom he vocally supports.
And violence was used to physically attack people, like this woman. She was wearing the wrong kind of hat so she was pepper sprayed by a Leftist thug.
We saw this in Wisconsin in 2011. This is definitely a déjà vu situation. The Leftists went nuts. They destroyed property and spewed hateful rhetoric, occupying the Capitol. How did that "movement" turn out?
It failed in every sense.
The runaway Democrat state senators eventually returned, accomplishing absolutely nothing of substance by leaving the state -- FAILURE.
Their recall of Gov. Scott Walker FAILED, actually turning Gov. Walker into a national figure and dramatically raising his profile.
Act 10 passed and is still in place -- another FAILURE.
People here in Wisconsin were more determined than ever to not let the Leftist thugs win, not reward their tantrum.
And we didn't.
So, keep up the hysteria, Leftists. Keep setting fires and breaking glass and chanting inanities. It's helping Donald Trump and the conservative cause.
Leftists really need to examine what happened in Wisconsin and think about what they're doing.

Note to rioters: Setting fires, damaging property, burning a tree, and burning the American flag is not winning over the hearts and minds of law-abiding Americans.
IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: People on the Right vigorously disagreed with Obama and the Democrats the past eight years, but you didn't see anything remotely like this, ever.
