“I think shutting down and forcing the cancellation of a white supremacist like Milo Yiannopoulos was a stunning achievement….”
“It isn’t a question of free speech,” said Felarca. “This is about our right to be free of intimidation.” [Emphasis added.]
The person who said that is a public school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District.
For every violent thug in a black mask at the Berkeley Riot, there were 5 “non-violent” protesters proving him cover; ten people who know who they are but won’t tell the police; and ten or a hundred thousand liberals nodding and saying, “I don’t totally agree with their tactics, but I like the result.”
Say what you will about how “Antifa” is a violent minority; but it only takes 1 dog to move a thousand sheep.
It is notable that Milo Yiannopoulos — a gay, Jewish immigrant with a penchant for interracial coupling — is the object of the left’s Two-Minutes Hate. They hate him with such passion because he proves that two of the most dearly held beliefs of the American left are false. 1. That the right-wing hates gays and immigrants and would never accept one as their own. 2. That the left is open-minded, thoughtful, and tolerant.
