UC Berkeley cancels right-wing provocateur’s talk amid violent protest

A protest at UC Berkeley over a scheduled appearance by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos turned fiery and violent Wednesday night, prompting police to cancel the event and hustle the Breitbart News editor off campus.

But even after the event’s cancellation, hundreds of protesters spilled off campus into the city streets, where the violence continued as they confronted drivers, engaged in fights, smashed storefront windows and set fires.

Protesters decried President Trump’s policies as much as they did the visit by Yiannopoulos, a gay conservative who has been making the rounds at college campuses across the country with his “Dangerous Faggot” talks, specializing in remarks meant to insult, offend and disgust liberals who disagree with his ideas.

The trouble began around 6 p.m., two hours before Yiannopoulos was to begin his speech inside the student union building on Sproul Plaza. Protesters outside the building began throwing fireworks and pulling down the metal barricades police set up to keep protesters from rushing inside. Windows were smashed and fires were set outside the building as masked protesters stormed it. Police quickly evacuated Yiannopoulos for his own safety.

Berkeley police said five people were injured and some people, including a man who said he had hoped to see Yiannopoulos speak, were seen with their faces bloodied. There were no arrests.

Police said protesters threw bricks and fireworks at police officers. University police locked down all buildings and told people inside them to shelter in place, and later fired pepper balls and paint balls into the crowd of protesters who defied orders to leave the area. Police called in support from nine of the 10 UC campuses and the Oakland Police Department and Alameda County sheriffs department.

[…]

Protesters argued that what Yiannopoulos specializes in is hate speech, and that it didn’t deserve to be protected.

“It’s not a question of free speech,” a protester said via megaphone, riling up the hundreds of protesters. “It’s about real human beings.”

[…]

In an interview with Fox News after Wednesday’s cancellation, the 32-year-old Yiannopoulos — a self-described “libertarian, gay, Trump-supporting provocateur” — said college campuses are places where “you should be able to engage with different ideas.”

Those who attend his appearances, he said, include people who “don’t necessarily agree with me but just want to hear the other side. They were prevented from doing so this evening by violence from the left — the left that is terrified of anyone who they think might be persuasive or might be interesting or might take people with them.”

But UC Berkeley sophomore Jonathan Gow, 19, rejected Yiannopoulos’ insistence that free speech took a hit.
“The whole reason we’re here is for free speech,” Gow said. “Milo’s hate speech is not allowed here. When it’s hate speech, our free speech is to shut him down.”

A few observations:

1. It was a riot, not a protest.

2. Looking at pictures and videos of the riot show that police presence was non-existant. At the first sign of trouble they retreated and then disappeared.

3. For so-called “anarchists” they were awfully well organized.

4. There is zero chance that Gov. Moonbeam would send in the National Guard.

5. Riots like this one only seem to take place where Democrats are in control.

6. This is what real fascism looks like.

      At some point starbucks needs to grow some balls and say something for the livelihood of these franchise owners because for some reason they are THE target of these anarchists.

  1. Miranda says:

    Molotov cocktails were being thrown and not one arrest? The police either don’t give a shit or were prevented from doing their jobs by higher ups. Of course, it’s Berkeley so destroying it doesn’t really hurt anything. ::eyeroll::

  2. Lulu says:

    I’m confused. Isn’t this what the locals and uni administration want?

    • kanaughty says:

      If george soros was gone soon, i mean the dude is so old, would these protests stop? Is he the head of the snake? Or is it a whole organization who would rise a new leader like al queda or the mafia?

      • taw46 says:

        It would not stop. He has at least one son, maybe two, that share his goals. Govt would probably have to go after the organizations to stop it, or at least slow it down to some extent.

  3. Dora says:

    They are not going to stop.

    I think they want to burn the country down.

    Can you imagine how crazy they are going to get when the wall is being built?

    • Lulu says:

      But they have taller ladders right? They keep talking about ladders. They will just carry collapse-able, and very light, 36 foot ladders around with them in the boonies. And I keep thinking of Roadrunner cartoons with Wile E Coyote falling off ladders that are tipped over.

      • kanaughty says:

        Rope would be smarter than a ladder, but who said they even had a normal IQ. They are idiots. 😉

        • Constance says:

          You have to be in much better shape to climb a rope than a ladder, even if the rope has foot rest knots. In fact I’m guessing most women couldn’t climb a rope.

          • Somebody says:

            I climbed a rope once to the top of the gym. The bell rang and my jackass classmates swung the rope like a pendulum and walked away. I was all alone swinging and screaming in the gym. I somehow got the idea to jump onto a trampoline to escape, bad idea. I hit the trampoline and flew right off, broke both my ankle and both my wrists.

            This was the 1st year of co-ed gym. I was determined to be in the class with the jock……BOYS! I was 1 of two girls that made the top gym class. Although after my injuries I mostly assisted the coaches for the rest of the year, easy A.

  4. Lulu says:

    One of the laws of economics and public administration/government is you get more of what you subsidize. Vile progs generally and California now specifically are getting what they paid for. Some like it, some are alarmed, and some are changing their minds. This is about not paying for illegal aliens which California has imported for cheap labor and increased clout in census counts from national taxpayers. Universities are the most concentrated populations of vile progs, receive vast amounts of public money, have the most easily influenced, usable and disposable cannon fodder walking around, and have public property to destroy. California’s globalist, open border, public welfare, self dealing, extreme economic class system, and their economic model of cost shifting is about to fail when the money gets cut off. It was already teetering and now it is collapsing and set off by suggested Memorandums to cut off the money from the new administration. Follow the money.

    • kanaughty says:

      I think we should stop any federal funding to california universities, especially if they state they will be sanctuary campuses. I kind of hope california does try to secede because i would love to see that stupidity play out. They’d for 1 have no water anymore. Everyone who loves america would hopefully evacuate and their goes their state tax base.

  5. taw46 says:

    Tucker and Milo last night.

    • Lulu says:

      Milo just keeps poking them with a stick. I shouldn’t laugh but they are just so predicable.

    • kanaughty says:

      Just wait until his book comes out. You will see these same people who call him a nazi, burning his book in huge piles. At least milo will make that money. But also it will prove his point about who the real nazis are because he can compare them to the nazis burning of books in the 30’s.

    Surber:

    Berkeley has gone from the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s to the No Speech Zone of the 21st century.

    The Democratic Party controls the state of California.

    Unless Governor Jerry Brown cracks down on this fascism, I can only assume it is now Democratic Party policy to shout down any and all opposition.

    So far, colleges have canceled Milo repeatedly rather than let him speak.

    Speaking of opposition, when is the press (which fancies itself in the Trump era as an opposition party) going to climb down from its high horse and push California and college campuses across the country to expel students and fire staff members (including administrative staff) who participate in such brown-shirting?

    Standing up for your free speech or the First Amendment rights of those you agree with does not impress me.

    Standing up for the right of someone else to call you a son of a bitch (or worse) does.

    There are many reasons Most Americans distrust the news media. One of them is its cowardice in standing up to militant lefties, particularly minorities.

    The press has no problem castigating conservative white males, which is fine with us. A little self-defeating as we are (or were) the most likely newspaper subscribers and consumers of TV news.

    But calling out lefties is a no-no. Too many people of color. Don’t want to offend people.

    So reporters ignore the fires and call the riot a “protest.” Reporters look the other way when people burn a flag or punch a conservative.

    But this is not about race or sex or who you screw.

    This is about being an American.

    The left loves to lecture us that “This Is Not What America Is.”

    And then they proceed to resort to violence to intimidate. Why not? Governor Brown and college presidents across the land coddle the rioters.

    The ACLU once stood up for allowing a few ineffectual Neo Nazis to march in Skokie, Illinois, even though it was home to many Holocaust survivors.

    I have not heard the ACLU stand up for Milo.

    So we know who the ACLU stands for.

    What does the media stand for?

    Does the Washington Post stand with free speech and Milo? Or does it side with the fascists at Berkeley?

    Does the New York Times stand with free speech and Milo? Or does it side with the fascists at Berkeley?

    Does the Wall Street Journal stand with free speech and Milo? Or does it side with the fascists at Berkeley?

    We know the answer.

    We have heard their silence.

    It deafens.

    It cancels their Fourth Estate privilege.

    Director Judd Apatow Supports Far-Left Berkeley Riot, Warns ‘This is Just the Beginning’

    Hollywood director, writer, and producer Judd Apatow warned conservatives on Twitter that last night’s riot at UC Berkeley was “just the beginning,” adding: “When will all the fools who are still supporting Trump realize what is at stake?”

    many years ago in Philadelphia we had a mayor who said let them burn their own neighborhoods but fence them in so they can not burn other neighborhoods. I still think that is a good idea.
    One reason for that was when the fire trucks come to put out the fires the rioters shot at them.
    let them burn down berkley. let no other college take this fools.who suffers? I can not see any business hiring them anyway. who needs the headaches?

      That Phil is one smart rodent. If you’re wondering how much wood this little woodchuck could chuck if he could chuck wood, somebody took the time to figure it out.

      A more concrete answer was published by the Associated Press in 1988, which reported that a New York fish and wildlife technician named Richard Thomas had calculated the volume of dirt in a typical 25–30-foot (7.6–9.1 m) long woodchuck burrow, and had determined that if the woodchuck had moved an equivalent volume of wood, it could move “about 711 pounds (323 kg) on a good day, with the wind at his back”.

      The AP used to publish important stuff.

        Elliesdad worked in Skokie (for Donald Rumsfeld) in 1978. If the Nazis wanting to march through Skokie wasn’t incitement, nothing is, and yet, the ACLU was there.

        • Jadzia says:

          I was a staff member at that ACLU branch (Chicago) once upon a time before law school. The old-timers told me that during the Skokie thing they were getting bags and bags of hate mail every day and the national ACLU lost a huge number of members. They stood their ground. What the hell happened to THOSE guys?

          (Actually, I know the answer to that question. Those guys are all dead because Skokie was a long time ago and they weren’t young back then.)

    VDH never disappoints. I think he has a real point here. People are confusing Trump the man with Trump’s plans for the country. I have a friend who has no tact and very little class, bless her dear sweet heart, who thinks Michelle Obama has more qualifications to be POTUS than Trump because she has “style and grace” in dealing with the world, and Trump and Melania are like a couple of porn stars. If you make her one of those “Whose policy is this?” lists, though, she can’t do it, and usually picks Trump’s things as things she likes.

    Ex-Obama Official Suggests ‘Military Coup’ Against Trump

  49. John Denney says:

    Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity had Milo on the phone last night after he had left the venue, but while the riot was still happening.
    Milo said the campus group that invited him was charged $6500 by the University at the last minute for “security”, and told the event would be canceled if they didn’t pay up. He went on to say that this is a tactic used by the universities to suppress conservative views, since it difficult for students to come up with that kind of cash on such short notice. In this case, an anonymous donor paid it.
    I think they should demand their money back, since “security” failed to keep the peace and the event was canceled anyway.
    Sounds like a business/volunteer opportunity: providing REAL security for conservative campus events.
    Milo had his own personal security team of ex-SEALs.

    • lateblum says:

      Thank you for remembering this. I heard the interview and at times had some difficulty understanding Milo. The interview went on past the end of Tucker’s show. I plan to watch tonight while they talk without the distraction of noise, fire, and other assorted violence plays in the background.
