There is a war brewing between the young people of the American political left and, frankly, anyone that the news media tells them to go to war against.
College-aged liberals across the nation have been boiling with rage in recent months, after the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States sent them into a frenzy of anger, segregation, and censorship.
One of the most brutal clashes in this all out attack on conservative values came in the liberal stronghold of California, on the campus of UC Berkeley in February 2017 as conservative speaker Milo Yiannopolous was scheduled to hold a lecture on conservatism. Milo, an openly gay former editor of Breitbart, has been a controversial figure within the conservative ranks for some time. His lifestyle and youth, however, led many to believe that he could be the crossover voice for many young Americans still trapped in the tenets of national liberalism.
Instead, what happened at UC Berkeley was a travesty.
Leftist agitators stoked the fires of exclusion by denouncing Yiannopolous as unfit to speak on campus. Their anger soon turned to action, as their university was besieged by fascist liberals who were determined to censor Milo’s speech at any cost. Riots broke out among the students, complete with mass violence and arson. The school was forced to cancel Milo’s appearance due to the destruction of these “tolerant” liberals.
Now, with Ann Coulter scheduled to speak on campus, UC Berkeley is being forced to prepare for yet another night of anarchy from the lunatic left.
“The planned visit by firebrand conservative commentator Ann Coulter to the University of California, Berkeley has officials and organizers worrying about a repeat of the rioting which greeted Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
“Coulter’s visit to UC Berkeley isn’t for another month. But student organizers of the event say they are nervous that the visit from the outspoken conservative will spark another massive backlash.
“’We are pretty apprehensive right now about everything,’ said Pranav Jandahyala, president of the nonpartisan student political organization BridgeCal. ‘But at the same time, what’s pushing us forward is our optimism. We truly believe we can put on a great event.’”
Incidents such as this are a cause for concern, certainly. Our young Americans should be examining a plethora of ideas while meandering the path of higher education, as opposed to violently stamping out those who they disagree with. No good can come from the allowance of these childish and offensive actions being aimed toward an enormous segment of the American citizenship.
Frankly, UC Berkeley’s angry student population are employing the underlying tactics of fascism, and they must be stopped.
