Breitbart Star Got Chased Out Of UC Berkeley By An Angry Mob, And All Is Right With The World

The University of California, Berkeley is one of the most liberal universities in the country. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the community there was not pleased when Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak there Wednesday night. Just like they have since Donald Trump began wreaking havoc on our democracy, the people stood up and refused to stand for the white supremacist ideas of Breitbart News being spread on their campus.

This was not just any protest, though. Barricades were torn down, and fires were set. The entire campus was ordered to shelter in place.

Now, one might object to the nature of the protests, but there’s no denying that they accomplished their goal. Milo is not just any speaker. He is the most visible mouthpiece at the site formerly run by Donald Trump’s White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who once described the place as a “platform for the alt-right.” And “alt-right” is nothing more than a synonym for white supremacy. In other words, a person like Milo speaking on a college campus would be the equivalent of inviting David Duke to speak. This new white supremacy is the same thing – they have just traded their sheets and hoods for suits and ties. Of course, Milo whined, saying it was about free speech:

“I have been evacuated from the UC Berkeley campus after violent left-wing protestors tore down barricades, lit fires, threw rocks and Roman candles at the windows and breached the ground floor of the building.”

“I’ll let you know more when the facts become clear. One thing we do know for sure: the Left is absolutely terrified of free speech and will do literally anything to shut it down.”

Well, Milo, sure you can speak. But your speech has consequences. The only thing the First Amendment protects is your right to speak without being taken in by the government. That’s it. Learn this, and you might be on the road to being more careful of what you say and write.

Good on the community at UC Berkeley for shutting this down. The world is a better place because of them.
