|Conservatives Came Prepared for a Fight|
Back in February, these same leftists caused a lot of damage to the university when a conservative, Milo Yiannopoulos, was invited to speak. As in often the case with conservative speakers there, he was forcibly prevented from speaking by the violence and intolerance of the communist population that infests the place.
|Yes It Is|
A young friend of mine, a member of my Sons of Confederate Veterans camp lives in Berkeley. He was there at the rally, with friends in support of the conservatives.
The leftists in Berzerkely call them selves "Antifa," which means "anti-fascist." This is ironic, since they themselves are thoroughly fascist, dedicated to violence in order to silence opposing views and political opinions. Instead of wearing brown shirts, however, they prefer a uniform of black clothing and ski masks to hide their faces. They are not about discussion or debate, they are about violence and brute force to enforce their destructive beliefs on a majority who do not want them.
Various leftist discussion sites (like Reddit) indicate the rabble will soon be practicing and learning more violent tactics for the next time anyone tries to impose sanity on their turf. As one leftist placard stated, "This is War."
