Once again liberals prove they are hypocrites. Their actions in Berkeley proved to the world that they are just another form of book burning Nazis.
Last night in Berkeley, a controversial right-wing speaker (see video below) prepared to deliver his speech on campus. Outside activists gathered in black robes and masks. They were obviously hiding weapons, bats, rocks, etc., under their clothing. And as they got close to the auditorium where Milo was about to speak, they unleashed a torrent of rocks and started destroying property. Some fires were set, a few buildings were looted and not one arrest was made. How is this possible? They did these crimes right in front of campus police and the Berkeley police. Ah, but both are known as ultra-liberal departments. So these monsters got away with it. Ironically, one of the looted places was lefty Starbucks. It was totally trashed.
It seems to me that liberals are all about free speech until you disagree with them! Then they become bullies and they will beat you down to silence your opinion. History is filled with these hateful, intolerant people.
No doubt this Berkely mob would have felt right at home during Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany, when the Brown Shirts smashed out the windows of stores and terrorized their Jewish owners.
Nice performance you mean spirited, foul mouthed, liberal punks. Your actions will live on in infamy as an example for all to see. It’s one more reason why America is rejecting everything you stand for and why we have Trump in office. What a shameful attack this was, and on our most basic right afforded by the Constitution, our First Amendment.
Have a friend who has 2 children at Berkeley. They were not involved in the fracas, but said the rioters (can’t call them protestors) were OUTSIDE AGITATORS!
Would be wonderful if these rioters could be found to be getting paid by George Soros and he could spend some time behind bars for inciting a riot or sedition!
That is a wonderful thought isn’t it? But, chances are these little punks won again.
My nephew, the cop, was telling me about this. Apparently, we do have a happy band of semi-professional anarchist agitator folk who travel from event to event, with their little black hoods, making mischief. But this is America. You can do that, if you want to.
As this, that, and the other, get arrested, they are cataloged. They are then required to make whatever amends for whatever property damage, do their 30 days. But they have yet to maim anybody, and until they do, they are free to roam. You really don’t understand about America, do you? If they don’t “roam” the way you think they ought to … you just can’t deal with it.
Evidently Libby is OK with property destruction, fires, and general mayhem until the rioters actually maim someone.
One wonders if she would feel the same if it were HER property being torched or destroyed?
I am hopeful that this is true, if only because the alternative is such a damning indictment of Berkeley.
And so it begins—
“At the Justice Department, an employee in the division that administers grants to nonprofits fighting domestic violence and researching sex crimes said he and his colleagues have been planning to slow their work and to file complaints with the inspector general’s office if they are asked to shift grants away from their mission.”

Meditations on monsters
“There’s nothing worse than a monster who thinks he’s right with God.”
~Malcom Reynolds, captain of the cargo ship Serenity
I have spent a great deal of my life fighting monsters. Not the fun monsters that Larry Correia writes about, but the tawdry, dreary reality of men engaged in the ten thousand ways of being inhumane to other men.
I have seen the monsters borne of greed; of madness; and those borne out of lust for power over others.
Of all the monsters I’ve had dealings with over the last five decades, the absolute worst are the fanatics — those monsters who think they’re right with God.
Fanatics are people who think that their actions are blessed and/or required by a Higher Power (ideology, religion, politics, you name it); and are scary for a lot of reasons, but the two primary are:
1) Not only are their consciences clean no matter the evil they do, but there’s usually a group of like-minded people (mob, Politburo, cult, congregation, cell, whathaveyou) providing moral support, validation, hero worship, and all of the other fun stuff that group dynamics handles; and
2) Mission Creep. Defined as: “The expansion of a mission or task beyond its original goals, often after initial successes”, in this context mission creep refers to the nasty habit that fanatics have of always expanding their list of “Heretics, Heathens, Idolaters, And Other What Deserve Our Righteous Wrath”. Yes, they always expand this list — unless and until someone (metaphorically-speaking) holds their little heads under water until the bubbling stops.
In Africa and the Middle East, I witnessed first-hand the damage that fanatics can do; along with the snow-white consciences of those who committed some of the worst atrocities ever seen by the gods in the name of ideology, or religion, or politics.
Here in the United States — other than a brief fanatic embuggerance during the 1930s and 1940s — we don’t have a lot of experience with the little bugsnipes. Here when fanatics move up to their post-doctoral studies, the Rule of Law or society in general plays Whack-A-Mole with them, and then we trundle on our merry way.
In the last score of years or so, I’m starting to worry that this is no longer the case — and this concerns me, although probably not in the way that the average Gentle Reader imagines.
The company that my father worked for had a policy of hiring most of their employees from amongst the ranks of war veterans. The CEO was of the opinion that someone who had not only already been overseas, but had been shot at overseas, could probably handle anything West Africa could throw at them.
An educated tribesman from the northern part of the country — we’ll call him “Abdul” — got hisself bitten by the Religion Bug, came into our neck of the jungle, and set about bringing Allah to the fuzzy-wuzzies. Started out ok — if a little enthusiastic — built up a group of worshippers sycophants, did Some Good.
However, things started getting all fire-and-brimstone, and next thing we know, some poor lad gets immolated for recreational friction with an unsanctioned partner after being singled out by Our Wee Fanatic.
Things get all hot and bothered for a bit, but it’s all yelling and chest-pounding, and things settle down. Two weeks later, Abdul the Moderately Rabid goes a-wandering in the jungle at night and winds up as Kittie Kibble.
The local elders put a slam order on the leopard, call Da’, and I go out with him to do the deed. We start at the body, track the man-eater down, Da’ hoses him with a full magazine of 12 bore (Da’ REALLY hated leopards), and that was the end of it.
Except, at the body, I realized that Abdul the Moderately Rabid had been done in with an extremely sharp knife run into his neck from the side and punched out the front. All that the leopard did was clean up the carrion.
That’s what I’m worried about.
There are a whole bunch of 50-60 year-olds in the United States who fought the Cold War in dark alleys, midnight ports, and moonlit rooftops with knives, brass knuckles, and silenced pistols.
There are a whole bunch of 30-40 year-olds in the United States who fought vicious CQC battles in places like Mogadishu, Tora Bora, Fallujah, Najaf, and Mazar E Sharif.
There are 20-somethings from places like Compton, El Paso, Chicago, Detroit, Tiajuana, “the barrio”, “the ghetto”, and “the heights” who have stainless-steel teeth and thousand yard stares.
There are uncounted numbers of immigrants who have come here from war-torn hell-holes — and brought the skills and attitudes that enabled them to survive along.
This is what I’m worried about.
I’m worried that when Biff the Hygienically-Challenged and his Coterie of Fanatics decide that sucker-punching neo-nazis just isn’t enough and mission creep themselves into Proper Fanatical Stupidity, that some truly scary people are going to start whacking and stacking in response.
I don’t want to find myself standing over what’s left of a coyote attack and suddenly realizing that unless coyotes are carrying knives, some pipe-hitter has just declared war upon other Americans.
Y’all should be worried about this, too.
Yes, they probably should be very worried, but they are likely too stupid to notice or care. They are too full of their own BS and new found power, that they think they can intimidate and beat on anyone. That attitude is their undoing. It is the setup for a tragedy. I don’t wish it to be so, but it is inevitable that it will happen.
This guy badly needs an editor.
