Although the recent riots at the University of California – Berkeley are over, the damage still remains.
The protests gathered around UC Berkeley’s upcoming guest speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, editor of Breitbart News, went completely overboard. For some reason, it is ok to be tolerant of everyone, minus those with conservative viewpoints.
But, well, well, well! It looks like the actions of those who violently participated in these riots will be investigated and will be held accountable.
UC Berkeley have confirmed that the FBI are investigating the identities of the violent left-wing rioters responsible for cancellation of Breitbart Editor MILO’s talk at the university, according to university news site Berkeleyside…Breitbart News reported that Ian Dabney Miller, an employee of the university, was involved in the riots, uploading pictures on Twitter boasting of his involvement.
The event, which was meant to be the final event of MILO’s Dangerous Faggot Tour, was cancelled after rioters smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper sprayed innocent individuals, set fires in the street, and as well as spraying words “Kill Trump” on storefronts.
As well as causing $100,000 worth of damage to the university’s student union, rioters also caused between $400,000-500,000 worth of damage in Berkeley’s downtown area, according to John Caner, head of the Downtown Berkeley Association.
MILO has since confirmed that he is “planning to return to Berkeley to give the speech I was prevented from delivering, hopefully within the next few months.”
When will the snowflakes learn that protesting does not mean you need to damage either personal or public property? When will the liberals learn that physically attacking someone for their personal political views is a form of censorship?
Protests in and of themselves are something to be celebrated in this country, but there is definitely a right and wrong way to participate in one. For a peaceful, successful protest, you give your opinion, take your sign home, respect others that are around you, and leave personal and public property alone.
I hope the FBI finds everyone who was a violent part of these riots and holds their feet to the fire!
