It’s times like this that I’m glad I live in a country in which free speech is protected by the First Amendment. Oh, please forgive me, I must have been dreaming.
As I write these words, Milo Yiannopoulos has had to cancel a lecture he was going to give at UC Berkeley. There’s full-blown riot; fires are being set. Mayhem is everywhere. Thousands of “scholars” who are in hock for tens of thousands of dollars in order to be exposed to different ideas are behaving in ways that would make Brownshirts proud.
There’s so much irony here. Wasn’t Berkeley the place back in 1964 where the Free Speech movement started? Correct me if I’m wrong as I was a wee one then.
I guess the silver lining (besides the sardonic hilarity) is that I believe we are seeing the last gasps of a totalitarian order. The left is making yuge tactical errors everywhere and everyday. This is one of them. Americans don’t like thuggery. So, campus fascists, BLM terrorists, feminazi marchers: keep it up.
Shut down all the opposing viewpoints you can. Burn as many cars as you can. Hurl as many trashcans through plate glass as you can. By all means cry like little babies in the streets; block traffic. Keep it up. In case you didn’t know, President Trump filed the necessary papers for reelection today. He got 30 states in 2016, at this pace he’ll take 44 next time.
