hate violence – n. The attempt to silence political speech through violence, especially as practiced by leftists who are convinced that they possess the moral authority to judge which speech is proper. (see also shutuppery, douchebaggery and peace riot)
They got away with it last time, so the peaceful old hippies of Berkeley and their black-clad storm troopers mixed it up with attendees of a pro-Trump rally. We’ll never know who started it, but it doesn’t look like the Trump supporters went looking for a fight.
Violence broke out and at least 20 arrests were made in Berkeley on Saturday as supporters and opponents of President Trump clashed in a public display of the deep-seated tensions still roiling the country since the November elections.
Sorry, that was a peaceful, lawful election. Please stop dating the deep-seated tensions from November 2016. In general, losers go home quietly. After this election, the whining has continued.
Lincoln Smith, a 45-year-old man who came to show solidarity against Trump, acknowledged that some of the attendees were overly intense, including a woman who had accused him of being a Trump supporter because he was wearing red shoelaces.
“I’m here to support the message that hate speech is not free speech,” Smith said.
Some people there were on hand to support the message that Trump supporters are fair game for violence. That hate violence is acceptable because they perceive hate speech might occur. Do they not understand how obviously wrong that is?
They think they are on the side of angels, and that they are justified bloodying up Trump supporters.
In short, they’re thugs.
By now, a lot of us have seen this video.
Under some circumstances, it is acceptable to gently place the flag of your country on the ground. This guy needed both hands.
Make no mistake. These people want your right to assemble taken away. They want the heckler’s veto against your speech. They are leftist fascists looking to take back by violence that which they lost at the ballot box.
Keep it up, Berkeley. This is how you got Trump in the first place.
