Firstly, prepare to be incensed. A mob of violent nazis protesting “fascism” are burning Berkeley to protest Milo Yiannopoulos. A gay conservative. Let that sink in. To ease you into this swarm of sh!t, here’s a joke.
Somewhere at Berkeley, this conversation apparently happened at some point.
SNOWFLAKE #1: This Milo guy really triggers me with his hateful words. What’s a good way to protest him?
SNOWFLAKE #2: Lets burn down Berkeley and prove everything he says about us.
SNOWFLAKE #1: Genius!
I mean, really? For people who hate Milo, you pretty much wrote his next book, took a photo for the cover, and created the electronic press kit to go with it. Sadly the cost has been violence against people and property. Violence perpetrated by people who ironically think they’re fighting fascism. Spoiler alert: that’s the thru line to this entire post.
Watch these videos. Tell me who are the real fascists…
Just toppled a light pole. Craziest protest I've seen in Berkeley by far. Crowd fast turning violent. pic.twitter.com/5ujFLOtA4u

Right, turning violent. That was totally never the intention.
Here we have the cover of Milo’s next book…

Semantic change request: protesters to “RIOTERS.” And yes, all caps is preferred. For once the protest turned violent, it’s a riot. Not a “riot” in the laughing sense, either. A riot as in people are getting hurt, property is being destroyed. Also, where are the police in all this?
These next few people seem nice…

So feminists, women are being attacked here for having beliefs which run counter to these “anti-fascists.” Will you march for them? Will you stand up for their rights? In this case their right to free speech and to assemble peacefully? Rights which are being violated by YOUR “supporters” who are protesting “FASCISM”!?

And of course…
We won this night. We will control the streets. We will liberate the land. We will fight fascists. We will dismantle the state. This is war. pic.twitter.com/JnlJMUtgCj

This is #TheResistance. These are the faces of
liberalism actual fascism. Just like conservatives are judged by every random person who went to a Tea Party rally who may have written mean words on a piece of oak, this is the face of the opposition. Rather than listen to a gay conservative who might have thoughts they disagree with, they want to burn the place down. They are burning it down. But remember, they’re super pro-free speech and super against fascism and stuff. They even said they’re fighting fascists. So it must be true.
Talk about zero self-awareness. They’re the real fascists here. They’re the nazis they claim to be fighting. Perhaps if they weren’t destroying all the mirrors along with any other property in their path, they’d take a beat to see they’re the real monsters.
I also want to remind everyone that before the election, when everyone in the media slavishly hoped Hillary would win, predictions like THIS were made:
My sense is that if Trump wins, Hillary supporters will be sad.
If Hillary wins, Trump supporters will be angry.

I’m not seeing many calls from the leftist media, or from the former president who’s been busy throwing fuel on the fire, ask for the cessation of these violent riots.
And let’s remember, we’re less than two weeks into the new administration. We still have 4-8 more years of this.
