It’s lots of fun to witness the Left’s latest unhinged lunacy and say things like “They never learn” and “Don’t they realize they’re hurting their own cause?”
We predict the imminent demise of crazy liberalism once and for all at our own risk. Conservatives waiting for the day that the Left finally self-destructs will be disappointed if that is their only game plan for victory.
As happened after the violence of the 1960s and 70s, the Trump-era Left will regroup under a different name, with a new look, and attract a new generation of idiotic young idealists.
Below: Berkeley protests over 50 years ago:
However, this isn’t the 1960s and now conservatives — or even just ordinary non-ideological folks disgusted by spectacles like this week’s Berkeley riots — have options the “Hard Hats” of 1970 never dreamed of. We can ignore the liberal media industrial complex and get the real story ourselves.
Case in point:
Following the violent anti-free-speech protests in Berkeley, California last night – sparked by Cal’s special snowflakes’ hurt feelings at the potential words that would come out of Milo Yiannopoulos’ mouth during a sold-out event – it appears America’s curiosity has been piqued.
Sales of Milo’s book have increased 12,740% overnight sending it rocketing from 642nd to 5th ranked best-seller on Amazon. Pretty impressive considering the book is not even released until March 14th 2017.
So despite all the best efforts of the liberal intelligentsia to shut down his ‘free-speech’ last night – hurting the feelings of 600 conservatives who were looking forward to the event – we suspect a lot more than 600 Americans are now about to get a crash course in how Milo thinks.
Like they did in the previous century, celebrities and the mainstream news media are calling those Berkeley rioters mere “protesters” and even, incredibly, “anti-fascists.” They are trying to glamorize them and make them seem like the moral, even normal ones in this battle.
But for the first time in history, millions of Americans have alternatives to the elite’s received wisdom. They can hear Milo themselves, see cellphone videos of peaceful Milo supporters being assaulted by these “protesters,” and buy Milo’s book as easily as ordering a pizza.
That all this is happening on internet platforms run by flaming liberals is hilariously ironic, too.
And then Milo had this fantastic response to Berkeley after his huge windfall:
In a Facebook post, MILO said that he is “planning to return to Berkeley to give the speech I was prevented from delivering. Hopefully within the next few months. I’ll keep you posted.”
President Donald Trump condemned the riots, threatening to take away the university’s federal funding if the university “does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view.”
Clearly Milo won’t be silenced, and Trump is standing with him:
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

To the snowflakes we say: “Riot all you want!” There a consequences to your actions, and if you keep this up, you will be feeling them very soon. Trump will have every excuse to cut the federal budget, and the loony liberals will be the ones losing out.
