Not only does rioting affect this event, but university administrations around the country might be reticent to schedule such events in the future, thus exacerbating the problem of campus life becoming a liberal echo chamber. Likely by design.

Speech by far-right Milo Yiannopoulos canceled at UC Berkeley amid protests
By our reporters
2 February 2017
World Socialist Web Site
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/02/02/berk-f02.html

The University of California, Berkeley canceled a talk by Milo Yiannopoulos, the editor of Breitbart News, amid protests by thousands of students Wednesday night.

The largely peaceful protest was accompanied by a section of anarchists who ignited a gas lamp, starting a blaze, threw fireworks at police and event organizers, and physically assaulted Trump supporters. Berkeley Police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and noise grenades at the crowd. Berkeley Police also declared a lock-down of campus, telling students to leave campus, as they brought in larger detachments of riot-squads from outside police agencies to crack down on protesters.

Wednesday night’s event was the final stop in a nation-wide college campus speaking tour for Yiannopoulos. Yiannopoulos is an extreme right-wing provocateur who presents the “Christian world” in a struggle for power against Islam. The 32-year old gay man titled his tour “The Dangerous Faggot.”

Stephen Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist and a major figure in his administration, was formally the head of Breitbart News, which has ties to fascistic and white nationalist organizations.

At multiple other campuses, including UC Davis and UCLA, Yiannopoulos’s events were canceled. On Tuesday night he spoke at California Polytechnic University. His speech was largely a diatribe against abortion rights. He appealed to “Western Civilization” to end abortion and attacked Muslim immigrants. “Islam is always wrong,” he told the crowd.

At one of Yiannopoulos’ speeches at the University of Washington on January 20, a protester was shot and seriously injured, apparently by a Trump supporter.

He told the BBC in an interview earlier this year that his alt-right supporters were motivated by hostility to political correctness. Yiannopoulos laces his attack on “offense-taking and grievance-holding culture” with xenophobia, racism and right-wing nationalism. In one speech, he said, Muslim immigrants “were going to bring their delicacies with them: pork chops, yoghurt, and gang-rape.” He has repeatedly advocated banning Muslims from entering the United States and Europe. He stresses that “Islam, not radical Islam, is the problem.”

Such comments are in line with the early policies of the Trump administration, including the ban on refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly-Muslim countries announced last weekend.

Wednesday night’s scheduled event at UC Berkeley was hosted by the UC Berkeley college Republican club, a registered student organization on campus, and was not directly sponsored by the university. Leading up to the event, students expressed opposition to Yiannopoulos and his political views. Hundreds of teachers and faculty signed a letter asking the university to shut down the event.

Several Trump supporters in attendance at the protest and the event were maced or assaulted, including a young woman who was being interviewed on ABC News. At one point a car sped through a crowd of protesters with one masked protester banging on its windshield. Later a man was mistaken for the driver and pepper-sprayed by a member of the crowd. Shop windows, cars and ATMs were bashed in the city. A Starbucks near campus was also looted. A loosely organized coalition calling itself ANTIFA, standing for anti-fascist, has been blamed for much of the violence.

Black blocs are notorious for having infiltrators from the police departments. This occurred in Oakland during the Occupy movement in 2011 and 2012.

Funny how it's always portrayed as peaceful protests, with a few "Anarchists" using violence.

Never mind that the main tenet of Anarchy is the Non-Aggression Principle. I wonder why authoritarians would want to pretend Anarchists are violent??????

Actually NA, I wouldn't describe them as exactly true Anarchist. Anarchist are against any government, like in Greece remember, these protesters are actually far left and into big government.. just pissed and acting like spoiled babies, but why burn down your city and school?. I cherish my neighborhood and University I went to, I would never go and try to vandalize it, because I didn't get my way. I just don't understand the violence and destruction of their own surroundings!

I didn't agree with the Obama admin, for the last 8 years, but I never once acted out in violence. I knew we would get through it victorious.

1979, I am an Anarchist, and my profile name is Non-Aggression Principle.


I'm an Anarchist because I'm opposed to the organized intimidation and violence that government is built on.



It's a shame that pop culture has been fooled into thinking chaos anytime Anarchy is mentioned. We just seek voluntary interactions and universality of principles.

Didn't they make a movie about that? If I am not mistaking, or maybe I am, but wasn't some of the principles off Ayn Rand's Philosophy? Ayn Rand had some good points, she was a big supporter, especially in laissez-faire capitalism. I enjoyed Atlas Shrugged. I think they're similar... very, very little government, but NA Principle was for No government right?

NA, I don't exactly agree with you, but I have to admit. I have seen you make some good points and you're peaceful and I respect you for that.. That is a good thing. I am actually, but the way these liberals TRIED to pile on, I just shoved it right back in their face and they backed off. They were testing the waters. They're doing this all across America now and I won't fold here or no where. Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire!

Ayn Rand was an Objectivist, and she believed in a very small government. A Minarchist, if you will. Gault's Gulch was an Anarchist community in the book.

These students are out to do the dirty work, for their professor's and school, thats robbing them blind for their tuition etc. But it's funny to see some want to blame a few anarchists supposedly. Alternative facts are OK for the left. The people are no different, than the same morons who took over the Delaware Prison yesterday, because of the Propaganda so many are spewing.

We right-wingers firmly believe that destructive murderous criminals should pay all the costs to repair what they destroyed along with reparations to the people they've injured and the family members of the the people they've killed.

And that's why we right-wingers are demanding trillions for the people of Iraq in reparations and damage costs, as well as the arrest, trial and appropriate penalty dished out to the criminals responsible.

Make no mistake. Shutting down free speech is exclusively a tactic of the left. And now they seem to be getting more violent. Those tolerant and compassionate leftist will punch you in the face if you don’t think like them.

UNTIL Israel arrests and tries Soros ---- NO MORE holoCOST whining ------ ALL the Soros Family money should be forfeit ..... it was founded on money stolen from J()()ish victims of the Holocaust and should ALL be handed over as reparations. Or was there NO holocaust?

There was NO holocaust --- if there had been ... Israel & J()()s everywhere would be DEMANDING George Soros be HANGED.

Soros' multi $BILLION fortune was started on supposedly stolen J()()ish property, and yet NOT A PEEP out of Israel?

Why are janitors and clerks persecuted, but Soros walks free and BRAGS about it!?

FUNNY there are no Israeli demands Soros' money be turned over to holocaust survivors!

Trump tweeted on Thursday morning. “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”

Milo's collegiate "Dangerous Faggot" tour has caused the protesting Left to show their TRUE colors. They seem to want Milo the f*ggot to burn in Hell for his sins. They are gay hateful and remind me of some violent muslims.

It's beyond the realm of possibility for a Soros hired goon to wear a Trump hat (in front of the TV cameras too ... how convenient).

Do I need to define FALSE FLAG to you, Minister Dipsh*t?

round and round we go again

most of these asinine 'protesters' are NOT students but are paid to wreak havoc...

i agree with trump...
no federal funds to these ridiculous paid warmongers created by the alt left and funded by
the george soroses of the lieinglooneyleftyliberalsocialistprogressivedimdumdems.

Protesters armed with bricks and fireworks mounted an assault on the building hosting a speech by polarizing Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos Wednesday night, forcing the event’s cancellation.

Several injuries have been reported and at least four banks have been vandalized after demonstrators marched away from the scene of a violent protest at the canceled speaking event by controversial far-right writer and speaker Yiannopoulos on the University of California at
Berkeley campus.

UC Berkeley officials said the protest was infiltrated by vandals.
Here we go again with the “infiltrated by vandals” line. How many times have we heard this one before? Oh, the peaceful protesters just wanted to have their voices heard but these nasty outsiders came along and ruined things. Really? Go take a look at the CBS video again. That looks like some awfully coordinated, well prepared violence, arson and looting. And I don’t see any of the marchers doing a thing to eject or even criticize the masked criminals engaging in all the carnage.

And what did they get away with?

By 8 p.m., a large crowd of people had moved off the campus and onto Telegraph Avenue. They smashed ATMs at a Bank of America branch and set several trash fires on Telegraph Avenue.

After marching west on Durant Avenue, the group moved north on Shattuck Avenue, smashing windows and vandalizing a Mechanics Bank branch near the corner of Bancroft Way.

Chase and Wells Fargo branches were also vandalized. A Starbucks location near campus was vandalized and looted.

Police also received reports that banks were set on fire in the area of Center Street and Shattuck Avenue.
Multiple banks robbed and burned. Starbucks looted. That should really teach Milo a thing or two. So what sort of “speech” did that represent? Is this some sort of performance art I’m too tragically un-hip to know about?

But all of the violence doesn’t cover up the sins of the rest of the crowd, even if some of them were not engaged in liberating cash and other private property. This wasn’t a protest designed to get out an opposing view or sway the public. This was not free speech. Just take a look at the public notices displayed around the area.



Shut. Him. Down.

Don’t let him speak. He has “no right” to speak here or anywhere. This was going on long before Trump took office, so that’s not the excuse. It’s just the modern Left in action. If they can’t win at the ballot box, the next step is to burn the place down and attempt to intimidate everyone until they get their way. Welcome to the modern era of civil discourse.

Here's Milo speaking to college kids. He really is gay and bobs his head quite a lot when he speaks. I couldn't hear the audio but I will listen later.

The thing I don't like about his cool jacket is that the gays have kidnapped the color Purple as a gay signifier and now you can't wear that color without being suspected of being gay.

Berkeley has a history of defending free speech.
Last night, they went against what at one time they defended.

Disgusting and disgraceful.
Free speech only counts when it is something you agree with.

Should the Left Deal With Their Capitalist Enemies . . .
https://DateHookup.dating/thread-1463823.htm

Should workers (i.e., left-wing) deal with their capitalist (i.e., right-wing) enemies the same way that capitalists deal with their enemies?

When capitalists have a problem with others getting in the way of their financial pursuits, they resort to "giving war a chance," bombing, killing, torture, sniper attacks, drone attacks, police attacks, and "nuking 'em all and letting God sort it out." I mean, that strategy seems to have worked pretty well for capitalists over the years. It's been a strategy of murder, violence and repression that every right-winger loves and embraces.

Forget MLK! Forget Gandhi! F**k peace! F**k protests! Where has any of that worked in the past 50 f**king years? No, no! We know what works. We've witnessed it for many years now from America's extremely-successful, capitalist ruling-class. What works is lots and lots of violence! What works is mass destruction of property. What works is mass killing. What works is evil, painful torture. What works is sniper fire on innocent people. What works is locking lots of people in gulags and treating them like dogs. What works is inflicting lots of brutal killer-cops upon the public. What works is lots of spying. What works are drone killings. What works is nuking cities off the face of the Earth.

Berkeley Blowback: Milo Book Sales Soar 12,740% Overnight

SHARES

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 curiousity 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.

Source: Amazon.com



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.

Ever been to a KKK rally, or cross burning? How about a Barry Goldwater Rally?

So your example of the right rioting forever, is to point to events from 50+ years ago, one the leftest KKK, and the other, words from a politician?

But why would a member of the other right-wing party of the gangster-capitalists do such a thing?

Why is the New York Times promoting the “black bloc”?
By Bill Van Auken
4 February 2017
World Socialist Web Site
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/02/04/anar-f04.html

The New York Times, the semi-official voice of the Democratic Party establishment, published an extraordinary article in its Friday edition headlined “Anarchists Vow to Halt Far Right’s Rise, With Violence if Needed.”

The piece, which ran across four columns of the newspaper’s front page under a huge photo of a black-masked individual preparing to break an office building window with an iron bar during Wednesday night’s protests at the University of California, Berkeley, amounted to free publicity and promotion of the violent protests organized by elements identifying themselves as the “black bloc,” anti-fascists and anarchists.

Authored by Times reporter Farah Stockman, the article consists not only of breathless accounts of gratuitous acts of violence by these elements and extended quotes from individuals claiming to represent their politics, but also multiple links to anarchist and black bloc websites and twitter feeds, helpfully provided for any reader who might want to get involved.

“With far-right groups edging into the mainstream with the rise of Donald Trump, self-described anti-fascists and anarchists are vowing to confront them at every turn, and by any means necessary—including violence,” Stockman writes.

“Anarchists also say their recent efforts have been wildly successful, both by focusing attention on their most urgent argument—that Mr. Trump poses a fascist threat—and by enticing others to join their movement,” the article continues. It is clear that she and the Times decided to lend a hand to this “enticement.”

The article ran just two days after the protest in Berkeley over a scheduled speaking appearance there by Milo Yiannopoulos, the extreme right-wing editor of Breitbart News, whose former boss, the fascistic Stephen Bannon, has become Trump’s chief White House strategist.

While thousands of Berkley students turned out to protest peacefully against Yiannopoulos, a reactionary provocateur who laces his speeches with Islamophobia, racism and right-wing nationalism, a minority of about 150 black-masked demonstrators organized under an amorphous coalition describing itself as ANTIFA, standing for anti-fascist, marched onto the campus and carried out acts of gratuitous violence that an overwhelming majority of the students at the protest opposed.

The ANTIFA contingent smashed windows, set fires, shot fireworks at police, assaulted the few Trump supporters in the area and vandalized local stores, buildings and ATMs.

The intervention by these hooded vandals managed to turn a mass protest into a police provocation.

These actions were precisely what Yiannopoulos and his supporters desired, allowing them to drape their virulent anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant racism in the mantle of “free speech.” Trump responded with a threat to cut off federal funding to UC Berkley, and the turmoil was seized upon by various politicians as a pretext for promoting laws to suppress genuine protests and strikes.

There has been a long experience with the violence of the so-called “black bloc,” anarchist and ANTIFA protesters, not only in the United States, but in Europe and around the world. The politics of these movements are thoroughly reactionary, based upon a visceral hostility to any struggle to mobilize the working class and youth in an independent political struggle against the capitalist system and for socialism. They attract demoralized and disoriented elements from the middle class, along with a sizable number of police provocateurs who hide behind hoods and masks and egg on the violence to provide an excuse for repression.

For obvious reasons, as at Wednesday night’s protest in Berkeley, these forces are often given a free hand to carry out provocations that are then exploited by the police. The challenge confronting those seeking to carry out genuine political actions in opposition to the government and the capitalist system it defends is to identify these provocateurs before they can do their dirty work and throw them out.

The Times, however, seems determined to see them get in. The article includes the following: “The question now is whether anarchists' efforts against Mr. Trump—whether merely colorful and spirited, or lawless and potentially lethal—will earn their fringe movement a bigger presence in the battle of ideas in years to come.”

No, the real question is, why is the Times promoting this “fringe movement” as some kind of serious contender in the “battle of ideas”?

The article, like much of that which appears in the news pages of the New York Times, stinks of a filthy political provocation.

The Times’ aim in promoting such retrograde tendencies as the “black bloc” and self-styled anarchists is to help divert the growing popular radicalization in response to the most right-wing government in US history into safe political channels.

Whatever the cost in broken windows, damaged ATMs and looted Starbucks’ coffee shops, these forces are fully subordinated to the Democratic Party and the capitalist system, while serving as a useful tool for the police in repressing mass unrest.

This explains how a newspaper that endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, has supported every imperialist war waged by Washington and has waged a neo-McCarthyite campaign in support of confrontation with Russia has become an enthusiastic patron of anarchism.
