On Wednesday, February 1st, 2017, Breitbart senior editor and professional provoker, Milo Yiannopoulos, was scheduled to give a talk at UC Berkeley in California. The subject of the talk was federal funding for self-proclaimed ‘sanctuary campuses.’ The discussion would be on why federal funding should be completely cut from any campus in the united states that has stated it would not comply with the law and federal authorities when it came to immigration law, deportation, and illegals in our country. Personally, if a federal institution does not uphold the US law and comply with US law enforcement, then by all means, they shouldn’t receive money from the country they are not supporting.
Whether you agree with anything Yiannopoulos says or not, there should be one uniting detail of Wednesday night. The event was shut down by pre-planned violent riots. Their justification? They rioters don’t like what Yiannopoulos says or believes. They tried calling him names to shame him into silence. Fascist, Nazi, white supremacist. The usual. It didn’t work. When words stopped working, protesters turned to rioters, using violence against their political adversaries with whom they couldn’t debate.
Yiannopoulos’ talk was supposed to start at 6PM, however, rioters arrived hours earlier and were blocking off the building. Yiannopoulos stated that while he was preparing for the speech pre-show, he could hear things being thrown at the building. Barricades overturned. Fires started. Windows broken. Yiannopoulos was evacuated to safety and the speech was cancelled.
Even after it was announced that the speech was cancelled, the rioters didn’t stop. They continued their violence by chasing down attendees (or even assumed attendees) and assaulting them. In this video, you can see them chasing people, cornering them on the ground and assaulting them, the cheering, “beat his ass!”
They shot fireworks at police officers. When fires were put out, they would light more. The event had already been cancelled, so why did they continue to destroy?
This wasn’t just an attack on a man with controversial opinions. This was an attack on free speech. What’s more disturbing is the attack is by those who have vehemently going after President Trump at every corner because they believe he’s a “nazi” or “fascist” or “dictator.” These are people who claim themselves to be worries for free speech, yet when actually confronted with an opportunity to have someone speak opinions they don’t necessarily agree with, their go-to action is violence to the point of shutting down the event. Do you know what that sounds like?
Nazis and fascists.
Nazis were well-known for using violence and intimidation to shut down their political opposition.
“The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.” – Adolf Hitler
These are the same people that claim “fascism’ when Trump proposes cutting funds to things like NPR and PBS, which the government shouldn’t even be involved in; the government has no business funding the arts. These are the same people that claim enforcing American laws is racist and only what dictators do. They’re so deluded by their own hallucinations of saviorhood that they can’t see they are the bad guys. They are exactly what they claim to be fighting against. Or maybe it’s worse. Maybe they realize exactly what they are following Lenin’s advice: “Always accuse your victim of what you yourself are doing.” This is nothing new to democrats and especially nothing new to Marxists.
“The bottom line is, in the Marxist tradition, they are accusing their victims of doing exactly what they are doing, despite the fact there is no truth in the accusation.” – FloppingAces.Net
You don’t have to look far from any major Marxist movement to find this tactic being used. The Nazis were very fond of a propaganda technique they called the “Big Lie.” The term was coined in Adolf Hitler’s book, “Mein Kampf” and referred to lies that were so big, the public couldn’t do anything but believe they were true because would would even have the audacity to tell a lie that big and outrageous!
To quote James Murphy’s translation of “Mein Kampf, Chapter 10,” Hitler wrote:
“But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall precisely to the man who alone had shown a superhuman will and energy in his effort to prevent the catastrophe which he had foreseen and to save the nation from that hour of complete overthrow and shame. By placing responsibility for the loss of the world war on the shoulders of Ludendorff they took away the weapon of moral right from the only adversary dangerous enough to be likely to succeed in bringing the betrayers of the Fatherland to Justice.
All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.
It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”
The tl;dr version of the above passage and principle is “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
Along with the “Big Lie” tool, Hitler spoke used it in combination with the following psychological profile:
“His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.”
Things are starting to look way too familiar for comfort.
And before you start, Marxism and Nazism are two arms of the same soldier. Hitler said, “Basically National Socialism and Marxism are the same.” So it’s not surprising that the domestic Marxist armies of today are employing the exact same tactics as national socialists and Marxist of the past.
It’s interesting to note that while state governors, mayors, other elected officials, and university professors are all quick to condemn Trump, any conservative individual including Jeff Sessions, Steven Bannon, university professors that actually defend free speech, there has been nothing but radio silence from any of them over the destruction seen at UC Berkeley. Following many of the criminal deaths last year of black men righteously shot by police, Obama, Clinton, and many other officials were quick to publicly condemn law enforcement before any facts came out. Then they proceeded to condemn and lecture law enforcement after facts came out and proved most of them were justified. Yet, as a fundamental claim to the United States, the act of free speech, is being assaulted, they are silent. There is no condemnation for the rioters.
Oh, but there’s more.
As you traverse the tags for #UCBerkeley, Milo Yiannopoulos, #MiloInCal, and whatever other phrases has popped up, you might notice a trend:
Do you see common themes among their profiles and posts? These are all the people uniting to combat free speech because as you may have heard, they believe in free speech BUT some speech shouldn’t be free. These are all the people who say they’re fighting for freedom… while actively assaulting people so they cannot practice a fundamental American, and human, right: the ability to speak freely.
Look, we knew this was coming. It was just a week or two ago when these same people no the left were justifying punching someone if they deemed them a “Nazi.” We saw it with Richard Spencer during the inauguration. Whether you like his political and social opinions or not, the appropriate reaction to words is not to punch someone in the face. But after some self-righteous communist leftist assaulted Spencer, the left were vehemently defending the blow because, “NAZI! IT’S OKAY TO PUNCH A NAZI! Indiana Jones and Captain America punched Nazis!”
Don’t even pretend that’s a legitimate defense.
- They’re not real people
- They were actually assaulting REGIME members who were physically harming people. Someone on the streets with an unpopular opinion is not the same as regimes actively murdering people.
But this is what the left does and has been doing for some time. They’re trying to blur the lines between word and action so they can justify their violence against anyone they please. I saw this happening years ago as people introduced “microaggressions.” The idea of “microaggressions” was to pick at something so tiny that it doesn’t even exist, but because they’ve decided whatever little action they deem is an ‘aggression’ they can justify their response of violence, isolation, or social consequence because now you’re a bad person for showing interest in another person.
It really didn’t take long to go from, “It’s okay to punch a Nazi” to setting fire and assaulting others with perceived ‘wrong’ political views. How many of those attending the UC Berkeley event were actual Nazis? I’m sure if you ask the rioters, they’d say everyone–because it justifies their violence.
Don’t be mistaken, BLM, feminists, Muslims, ‘social justice’ advocates, antifa… all of these people are different factions of the same army that want to destroy American values and imprison the American people. If they had their way, they would have hung anyone they thought was an aggressor last night. If they had true control, they would have murdered everyone they thought was there for Milo’s event, whether it was true or not and if they had their way, you are only one wrong opinion from being on the end of their rope.
There is no moral leg for self-proclaimed activists or leftist politicians to stand on if they plan to condemn anyone for ‘freedom of speech.’ They’ve created these armies of tribal savages through their brainwashing programs at universities and in popular television & movies that tell them to attack their political opponents with firsts rather than thought out, knowledgeable rebuttals. Need more proof? The cast of Netflix’s Stranger Things took the stage the other night at the SAG awards and spouted their support for fighting opposition with violence:
Hollywood is to blame. Universities are to blame. Obama is to blame. Leftists are to blame. The lawless administration we’ve had for the last decade or more trained these people to think and behave this way and that it would be followed without consequence. Notice how in the video footage from last night, it doesn’t seem like the police are doing anything to stop or detain the rioters, but instead take a hands-off approach to quelling the violence. It will be interesting to see if we hear about any arrests in Berkeley over the next few days. It will be interesting to see if the professors from the university who were there stroking the flames are held accountable for the damage done and the violence they encouraged among the minds they were supposed to be teaching critical thought, debate, and the ability to understand, process, and respond to different ideas.
The display from Wednesday night shows a couple of things:
- The UC Berkeley declared itself a sanctuary campus. That is, they stand to protect illegals and now illegal aliens, or what I will refer to as, invaders, claim it as theirs and claim they want to retake more. This alone shows immigration is out of control and the invaders have no right to be here. We must protect Americans and America’s interest. The fact that these invaders don’t even pretend to be civilized shows they have no reason to be part of our society.
- Again the left proves they don’t care about free speech and they don’t care about American law. If they were true free speech advocates, they would defend speech that they don’t agree with, not assault opponents with violence then cheer when the opponent is shut down. The left is continually proving they are nothing but fascists who call themselves flowers and they know they’ll get away with it. When students at these universities invite Milo, it’s them that has to foot the bill for the violence threatened by others. While those opposing the speaker pay nothing, suffer nothing, and lose nothing by smashing windows, lighting fires, and attacking students. Obviously, as cops stood back and let the school burn, fascist antifascists saw loss for their action, but everyone who was there, who followed the law, were threatened, assaulted, and unable to attend a speaker they wanted to hear. Do you see what you’re training?
- Free speech in California is dead. You may not know this but UC Berkeley was one of the founding members of a free speech movement back in 1964. Apparently, this isn’t the case anymore and the left is PROUD.
- They don’t understand irony. Milo’s event was going to be about free speech. Apparently Berkeley doesn’t have a problem with free speech–yet they shut a talk about free speech down as offensive and worthy of violent suppression! On top of that, if the event had gone on, it would have only garnered a couple hundred students locally and a couple thousand with online views. Instead the protestors turned his local talk into national news, bringing millions of peoples attention to the fight for free speech, freedom, and the American identity, to millions globally.
- Also, let’s not forget:
Please, do it President Trump. I can’t wait for the order to start deporting illegals. You won’t see any bleeding hearts. The assaults on Americans, the bragging about cheating the system, and the silence (or defense!) about it all from others is more than enough justification to remove every last one of them.
These universities should be ashamed. Their students are out of control by their own taught action. They can’t insure the safety of their students. They suppress speech. They are fundamentally anti-American and the fact they’ve been training domestic terrorists is made ever clearer every time one of these riots happens.
These schools and the actions of these people need to be taken for what they truly are: domestic terrorist threats, attacks from invaders and individuals who have no intention of becoming “American,” the people celebrating, defending, and condoning this, online or in person are threats to the security of our country and the safety of our countrymen.
This is not a joke. This is not a party. The rioters are not fighting against “fascism” or an evil dictator. They are committing treason and they will be stopped one way or another.
They call anyone they disagree with a fascist.
They graffiti and scream, “Kill fascists.”
They’re talking about you.
They want to kill you for having a different opinion.
They have declared war.
