What happens when liberal riots are covered by the mainstream media? Simple. The media just blames someone else.
That’s exactly what happened over the riot at UC Berkeley. “I don’t want to say factually, but I’ve heard there was some relationship here between these people and the right wing,” said Robert Reich on CNN Tonight.
What’s even worse is that Don Lemon went on to put words in Reich’s mouth, “You think it’s a strategy by Yiannopoulos or right-wingers? They put this on in an effort to show there’s no free speech on a college campus like UC Berkeley?”
I’m sorry, the right wing is trying to prove that there’s no free speech on campuses for their own viewpoint? While we’re asking absurd questions, Lemon, do you think the Mayor also an under-cover right winger? He did, after all, tell the police to stand down.
How, exactly, would Reich know whether or not these people were students? I don’t think a single one has had their identity revealed, so its not like you can check it against the school’s roster. They were all of the right age to be students, and yes, they were skinny, as kids in their twenties usually are.
Reich continued along with his absurd accusations anyway, “They were a part of a group that were organized and ready to create the kind of tumult and danger you saw that forced the police to cancel the event.”
Sure, they were dressed like masked ninjas, but I wouldn’t call their protest “organized.”
They smashed up windows, set fires, and failed to discriminate between Milo’s supporters and unaligned students who were milling about. They also beat an unconscious man with a shovel. No one who is protesting just to create publicity is going to risk committing murder. There has to be real hatred in you to do that.
Yes, free speech is indeed under fire. UC Berkeley, the birthplace of free speech, is now also it’s graveyard. If someone of a not-very conservative persuasion can’t talk on a campus in this country, where can they express themselves?
School officials owe an apology to Yiannopooulos for their failure to maintain institutional control. Both he and his listeners were in grave danger. Each protester needs to be identified and arrested. That’ll disprove Reich and Lemon’s outrageous suggestion too.
