VIOLENT LEFT-WING PROTESTERS TERRIFIED OF FREE SPEECH #UCBerkeley #Berkeley #Milo #MiloYiannopoulos #miloatcal pic.twitter.com/3E4D8nhsiv— The Patriarch Tree (@PatriarchTree) February 2, 2017
Berkeley has gone from the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s to the No Speech Zone of the 21st century.
The Democratic Party controls the state of California.
Unless Governor Jerry Brown cracks down on this fascism, I can only assume it is now Democratic Party policy to shout down any and all opposition.
So far, colleges have canceled Milo repeatedly rather than let him speak.
Speaking of opposition, when is the press (which fancies itself in the Trump era as an opposition party) going to climb down from its high horse and push California and college campuses across the country to expel students and fire staff members (including administrative staff) who participate in such brown-shirting?
Standing up for your free speech or the First Amendment rights of those you agree with does not impress me.
Standing up for the right of someone else to call you a son of a bitch (or worse) does.
There are many reasons Most Americans distrust the news media. One of them is its cowardice in standing up to militant lefties, particularly minorities.
The press has no problem castigating conservative white males, which is fine with us. A little self-defeating as we are (or were) the most likely newspaper subscribers and consumers of TV news.
But calling out lefties is a no-no. Too many people of color. Don't want to offend people.
So reporters ignore the fires and call the riot a "protest." Reporters look the other way when people burn a flag or punch a conservative.
But this is not about race or sex or who you screw.
This is about being an American.
The left loves to lecture us that "This Is Not What America Is."
And then they proceed to resort to violence to intimidate. Why not? Governor Brown and college presidents across the land coddle the rioters.
The ACLU once stood up for allowing a few ineffectual Neo Nazis to march in Skokie, Illinois, even though it was home to many Holocaust survivors.
I have not heard the ACLU stand up for Milo.
So we know who the ACLU stands for.
What does the media stand for?
Does the Washington Post stand with free speech and Milo? Or does it side with the fascists at Berkeley?
Does the New York Times stand with free speech and Milo? Or does it side with the fascists at Berkeley?
Does the Wall Street Journal stand with free speech and Milo? Or does it side with the fascists at Berkeley?
We know the answer.
We have heard their silence.
It cancels their Fourth Estate privilege.
Someday the media and the Establishment will hear from conservatives again. November 8 was not our final victory.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on Tuesday.
