Tolerance, liberal style: Violent leftists chase, beat man unconscious at Berkeley riot — Video

Berkeley beatenThis is what liberals really mean when they speak of “tolerance” and “diversity.”  On Wednesday night, violent liberal hatemongers rioted at UC Berkeley in response to a scheduled appearance by Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos. As a result, the speech was canceled and Yiannopoulos was evacuated from campus.  A video emerged from the riots showing a man being chased and beaten in the street.

Here’s the video, and while it’s difficult to see due to the shaking, it’s clear what’s happening.  One can also hear clear calls to beat the man:

Others were also subjected to violence at the riot, the Gateway Pundit said.


This is the modern left.  Their message couldn’t be more clear: Agree with us without question — or else.

A statement we received from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) said:

The use of mob violence to respond to constitutionally protected expression is an affront to our nation’s liberal traditions. And as so often happens, it has also proven deeply counterproductive, sabotaging its apparent aim. Instead of silencing Yiannopoulos, the violent response ensured that his message was broadcast nationwide.

The events at Berkeley should alarm citizens from across the political spectrum who hold dear the liberal values enshrined in the First Amendment. FIRE will continue to insist that the proper answer to speech you hate is more speech, and we stand with the vast majority of Americans who live according to this principle every day.


It really is enough to make one think liberals are stupid enough to want a second, bloody civil war over Donald Trump.
