When I think of liberals, I think of the fight against the Red Scare. I think of how people on the left came together to fight against a government who was all about fear, deception, and manipulating to convince the public that if you weren’t with them, you were against them. I think of thousands of people who came together to champion the rights of free speech and for unpopular opinions to be said. That’s the left that I think of. However, that is not the left that I see now.
For those who didn’t know, Milo Yiannopoulos was invited to speak at UC Berkeley. He didn’t ask to go there, but rather was invited. A person there to speak his mind. Now, because Milo is very openly conservative, and has a lot of far-right positions, it’s natural that there would be people who would disagree with him. Indeed, many of them gathered at this event. So, what did these people do? Did they come with well-reasoned arguments and try and have an open discussion with Milo? Did they allow him to speak and then have their rebuttal? No. That isn’t what happened. What happened? Well, take a look for yourself.
Listen to all those champions of free speech! Listen to the chant “Shut it down!” over and over again! Can’t you just tell how much they value the traits that the left is supposed to stand for? Because, after all, in today’s society, Milo’s views are unpopular. The popular consensus is much more left-leaning. With that in mind, you’d think that, even if they didn’t agree with him, my fellow left-leaning people would at least want to hear the guy out. That way we could form educated opinions on his views and then disagree with them in the most effective way – with good argumentation.
Fuck that noise! We gotta riot! Let’s destroy property! Let’s assault people! There was footage of some asshole tear-gassing a girl with a MAGA hat who was just minding her own business. One guy was beaten and stripped. There was even a story of someone who was shot when someone acted in self-defense after the mob went after him. Yup. That’s the progressive-left, everyone. That’s what it’s come to. But hey, maybe you think that that is hyperbole. After all, it’s not like celebrities are in on it or anything. Oh wait, here’s a link to a Tweet by Sarah Silverman, who lays it out that the military will eventually be coming in to help the left with an armed revolution. Hey Sarah, they call that treason, you know. Good thing that the Internet never forgets, because now Sarah is going to have this little nugget following her around forever.
Never in my life have I been more ashamed of the left in this country. We once made fun of the Tea Party and what a bunch of assholes they were. But you know what, as bad as their demonstrations were, I gotta say, even I am starting to agree with the conservatives who say that the left is worse. At least it didn’t come to guns and lighting garbage fires in the street. I remember saying that I wished America was more like other countries, who indulge in a good riot every now and then. Well, I got my wish. And it makes us look so pathetic.
Do the people like Sarah the retard Silverman not understand how absolutely horrific it would be to have armed revolution? Do they not realize what that would do to this country. Trump won, people! Fair and square! It’s all your fault. You made this monster. All the endless yelling about sexism and racism and all this other bullshit. Organizations who chant for dead cops, and then get their wish. You bear the blame here. Trump won on the backs of the people who are sick and tired of all the PC bullshit. Now we have a protest that had no illusions about being anything other than a riot, all to shut down someone that they don’t like.
The irony is that this will have the exact opposite effect. See, Milo really wasn’t a name in the mainstream. He is huge on the Internet, but he isn’t a name that the public at large knows. Now they do. Now they know exactly who he is. This riot has caught national attention. CNN was being just as hard on these idiots protesting as Fox News. That’s understandable. Any media outlet has to see this for the bat-shit crazy mess that it is. Milo’s name will just get bigger and bigger, while the people screaming in the streets, or taking to Twitter to call for violent uprising will be made to look like raving lunatics. Congratulations.
We can’t do like this, people. We just fucking can’t. Political discourse in this country cannot devolve into crowds screaming and burning shit in the street. If that’s where we’ve gone, then we might as well just go back to the Coliseum and have people settle their differences with swords. Then the mob could gamble on it and our descent as a nation into madness will be complete. Worse still, we have people defending this bullshit! Are you fucking kidding me?! This behavior is indefensible. But hey, it’s easy to defend when it isn’t these PC assholes who will be out in the street fighting the cops. It won’t be them in this “revolution.” They’ll be at Starbucks. Fuck these people.
