Yiannopoulos: ‘The Left is absolutely terrified of free speech’

UC Berkeley cancels Milo Yiannopoulos event amid violent protest

Shortly after the Breitbart News editor’s event was called off, he posted a statement on his Facebook page:

“I have been evacuated from the UC Berkeley campus after violent left-wing protestors tore down barricades lit fires, threw rocks and Roman candles at the windows and breached the ground floor of the building. My team and I are safe. But the event has been cancelled. I'll let you know more when the facts become clear.

One thing we do know for sure: the Left is absolutely terrified of free speech and will do literally anything to shut it down.”

In a subsequent interview with Fox News, Yiannopoulos said UC Berkeley is “a liberal campus. They hate libertarians or conservatives who dare to express an opinion on their campus. They particularly don’t like me.”

He said college campuses are places where “you should be able to engage with different ideas.”

Those who attend his appearances, he said, include people who “don’t necessarily agree with me but just want to hear the other side.

They were prevented from doing so this evening by violence from the left — the left that is terrified of anyone who they think might be persuasive or might be interesting or might take people with them.”

Liberals are dishonest and ruthlessly vicious when their weird ideas are challenged.

Terrorist: one who uses violence or threat of violence in order to purport a political, religious, or ideological change.

Liberal protesters burn, destroy, threaten.

Draw your own conclusion.

The leftist US governments have aided and encouraged the left in a bid to change the political direction of the political environment. Now the chickens are coming home to roost and I have no doubt that Donald Trump will use force to stop violent protests as he should. It is one thing to protest peacefully and that is encouraged but the use of violence is not acceptable and has only been made worse by Barak Obamas reluctance to punish violent protestors. Trump needs to go in hard and stop the violence now before it escalates because of political indifference at state and local level because of leftist leaders.

The left are going to get more violent and more cunning, because that is what they do. They will play victim more and more, so as to justify their supposedly righteous actions that are really actions of leftist hatred claiming to be actions of leftist caring. The majority of leftists don't even know they are hateful, even though the definition of hatred is a desire to harm and to destroy. Leftists feel jealous and angry, and hateful towards what they are jealous and angry at. Those feelings of jealousy, anger and hate are energising and feel themselves to be in the right, and therefore themselves to be good. Leftists feel themselves to be right, good and powerful. Most will not turn back from the hateful path they are on. They are the alternative truth and goodness. But truth is One, as is goodness, and their alternative truth and goodness is false. Their intent is to see the collapse of western Judeo-Christian civilisation. The left don't care that Islam is a murderous oppressive religion. They side with it anyway, even manipulate and use it. It is the left's and Islam's shared hatred of Judeo-Christian society that unites them in hatred against the west. It is quite possible that left and right are heading for war.

It is time that the authorities adopted a new strategy and corralled all protestors and processed them as they arrive at the release point. Free speech does not involve violence and destruction. All attendees should be processed so that authorities can issue warrants at a later date after video surveillance has be processed.
