MILO Shut Down At Berkeley

As I was telling Professor Main this afternoon, the Left isn’t synonymous with liberalism anymore:

The progressive Left has become infected by various non-liberal authoritarian ideologies like Marxism, postmodernism and critical race theory. What you saw on display tonight at UC Berkeley was Herbert Marcuse’s doctrine of “repressive tolerance” in full bloom.

Frankly, these people are not “liberals” anymore in any real sense of the term. Free speech? Tolerance? Freedom of assembly? Free inquiry? Neutrality? Equality? Freedom? The taboo on political violence? It’s all gone in a veritable bonfire of political violence. BTW, the classical definition of a “bigot” is someone who is “intolerant toward those holding different opinions.”

Do you know what I did when MILO gave a speech at Auburn? I ignored him because I don’t give a damn if he has a different point of view. I don’t care. It doesn’t bother me. I don’t believe that is a legitimate reason to riot in the streets and disturb the peace of my community. I also think it says a lot about these people that they are incapable of engaging in a civil exchange of views.

It’s actually pretty funny because I am supposedly the “fascist.” And yet, I am more of a *liberal* than these people. You have never seen me rioting in the streets, trying to beat up someone, wearing a mask and acting like a street thug, harassing people at hotels, haranguing innocent pedestrians, trying to get people fired from their jobs, smashing windows, throwing rocks at police officers, etc.

In the 21st century, there are political riots at UC Berkeley and shootings at the University of Washington. Such a thing would never happen in Mississippi or Alabama in 2017!

Note: The Left is plainly violating the norms of liberalism here. They’re establishing themselves as a new orthodoxy. They are as violent as any religious sect.

  • “they are as violent as a religious sect”
    Maybe it’s people that’s the problem and not religion….makes you think.

  • Ancient Roman tactics are necessary if Alt-Right campus events are to succeed:

    (It should be expected that Antifa will violently riot and the police will idly sit by.)

  • I want us all to start organizing. There’s no reason our voices should be “oppressed” by the so called “black bloc” without being met with some sort of resistance.

  • Millo essentially revived his flagging persona last night with Riot at Berkeley. This is great Free PR.

    Richard Spencer must go through with his college tour. I thought he had raised the $50K? Here’s some free advice if Spencer does do a college speaking tour.

    Spencer must only speak in towns and states with concealed carry laws for obvious reasons. Spencer’s TAMU speech wasn’t disrupted, a White Lives Matter rally in Texas also went off without the (armed) WLM protesters being attacked.

    Form local chapters of Youth for Western Civilization wherever Spencer will be speaking. Looks like YWC is defunct, time to revive it, again for obvious reasons.

  • The goal has always been to slowly inject Nationalist and Racialist ideology and talking points into the mainstream, while simultaneously pushing the Left further toward its totalitarian tendencies. Slowly bleed away the true “liberals” and allow the less principled Leftist ideologues room to showcase their natural propensities for violence, chaos and oppression.

    I’d say this plan is working spectacularly.
