Berkeley riot: this is so 1930s again!


Look Who Funds The Group Behind The Call To Arms At Milo’s Berkeley Event  "The left-wing group that helped organize the violent shut down of the Milo Yiannopoulos event at the University of California, Berkeley on Wednesday is backed by a progressive charity that is in turn funded by George Soros, the city of Tucson, a major labor union and several large companies."

Andrew J. McCarthy: Prosecute the Rioters
. . . "it is standard operating procedure among the most influential, most allegedly mainstream Democratic politicians to rationalize rioting as mere “protest.” In their alternative reality, violence in the name of sedition is “free speech” — a passionate expression of political dissent — while the actual political speech they so savagely suppress is the atrocity."

"There is no mystery about how we got to this dark place. Violent rampaging was the coming-of-age rite of the New Left. That would be the Sixties Left that eventually won the battle for control of the Democratic party and, in its extremism, has estranged that party from its traditional working-class base, and thus from much of the country. " . . .

The rioters found fertile rioting soil in California:  California Politicians Ignore Berkeley Riot Violence In Tweets; Blast Trump Instead
. . . "Most of the California electorate was silent on the matter, including Republicans. Gov. Jerry Brown, state Attorney General Xavier Becerra and U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris. Feinstein did have time to tweet kudos to the Affordable Care Act and Harris tweeted support for refugees entering the U.S."

Legal Insurrection found nothing from "national leader" Kamala Harris  . . . "After this massive disturbance, I was curious what our leading California politicians would have to say in regard to the rioting. While Senator Kamala Harris loved being part of the #WomensMarch, there was no statement on her thoughts about conservatives being denied their free speech rights. I couldn’t locate formal statements from Governor Jerry Brown or Senator Dianne Feinstein decrying the violence, either." . . .
Bear in mind, Harris supports radical causes including cop-killing Black Lives Matter

 This is not the first time this week a prominent Hollywood figure has championed violence against political opponents.

Most ironic sign: "freedom of speech"!

Berkeley riots, in photos, from Zombietime  . . . "Such images, taken without the filter of a toadying media, serve as a historic record to show the left as it really is.  They also illustrate Glenn Reynolds's arch-analysis – to wit: want More Trump?  This is how you get More Trump."
