Breitbart Editor’s Berkeley Talk Nixed as Protestors Get Violent

The Berkeley College Republicans said its "constitutional right to free speech was silenced by criminals and thugs."

A fire set by demonstrators protesting a scheduled speaking appearance by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos burns on Sproul Plaza on the University of California at Berkeley campus on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017, in Berkeley, Calif. The event was cancelled after protestors hurled commercial-grade fireworks, starting several fires.

    Ahhh, Berkeley… bastion of free speech. I remember when the Marines invaded them in 2008…

      I’m here in Cali. We’re not all like that.

        My apologies – I made the mistake of many and categorized a place and not specific people – I am sorry,

          No problem. It’s easy not to see the trees through the forest. Praying for The Lord Jesus Christ to be put on display.
