College campus protests are becoming more and more routine, like death, taxes, and LeBron James getting out of the first round of a playoff series.
I already covered the protests in Berkeley, but thanks to new information spoken by Judge Jeannine Pirro, I found out a few more facts:
One. One protester was arrested during the chaos in Berkeley in February. A bunch of masked anti-first amendment thugs destroy the campus, break down windows, beat people unconscious, and mace them, and NOTHING is done at all?
Sounds like a stand-down order to me.
To make matters worse, on March 4, Trump supporters went to Berkeley, and one helpless elderly person was maced for no reason other than supporting Trump, plus the usual chaos. One person, known as Based Stickman, was arrested for defending himself and once more on April 15, when Trump supporters and AntiFa clashed AGAIN.
It’s funny how in the late 1960s, Berkeley was considered the home of the Free Speech movement. How did we go from that, to protesters burning free speech signs?
It was only a matter of time before the Trump supporters started fighting back against the Antifa, plain and simple, as in what happened on April 15th. Eventually, bullies have to be stood up to. And to quote the “Be A Star” PSA from a few years ago, a bully is nothing more than a coward.
We have come to a time period where free speech (for some odd reason) is considered as hate speech.
Sadly, some of these jokers think they are doing the right thing by causing chaos and destroying things. It’s long past time for groups like AntiFa and BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) to be shut down and hit with RICO charges. We have these thugs attacking people with u-locks, shooting off M80s, macing people, and the police can’t do anything about it, for fear of being blacklisted and having their careers ruined.
People at campuses including Notre Dame, most famously known as one of the traditional college football powers feel “unsafe” about Mike Pence’s upcoming commencement speech there. Why? When did words make people feel unsafe? I remember when college students used to worry about getting busted for plagiarism and underage drinking. Now they’re scared of Mike Pence, who was the governor of Indiana (where Notre Dame is located) for four years?
Something needs to change and quick. We’ve got students shutting yelling at professors (in the case of shrieking girl at Yale in 2015), pouring salt on and snatching Lauren Southern’s phone (at University of Toronto), and shutting down speakers including Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, and so on and so forth. Why? Because they feel “unsafe” on campus due to words. And those words happen to be spoken from the hands of individuals who happen to be conservative.
If these snowflakes don’t like the speakers, just don’t go to the event! Or go, and actually listen to what they have to say instead of passing them off as hateful “Nazis”, “bigots”, and “racists” just because they have an opinion that you don’t like. There is a very small percentage of actual racists out there, and it’s sad that millennials are being brainwashed into believing that everyone who doesn’t agree with them is a racist.
Why are college millennials so fragile to the point where they can’t handle other people’s opinions and go above and beyond to shut down their free speech? Why do they claim to be peaceful and tolerant, yet the first time someone challenges their opinion, they need safe spaces, therapy dogs, and the like? OVER AN OPINION.
This can’t keep up if millennials are to be the generation of change. As a fellow millennial, I will say this. We will not make it in the real world if we keep up this nonsense.
We can’t go attacking others who have a different viewpoint than us. We need to stop protesting against free speech and being violent towards others who have a different opinion than us. We need to put on our big boy and big girl pants, accept the fact that Donald Trump is our President and move the hell on. For the love of God, GET OVER THE ELECTION. It’s been almost 100 days since the man took office, and five months since he rightfully won the election, yet people say that he is “Not My President”.
Well, I have a question for you “Not My President” folks out there? If he isn’t then who is?
Barack Obama: Last I checked his term ended on January 20, 2017.
Hillary Clinton: She “won” the popular vote, but lost the election.
Maxine Waters: The ever-so delusional representative of California’s 43rd district who is pushing to “impeach” him?
Like I said in November, burning cars, inciting violence and fear, destroying property, and making various threats is not going to make things better.
Use that anger to make your communities better instead of cowering in fear. Stir up positive change, listen to other people and their viewpoints. Who knows? You might learn something. Take it from me. Some of my viewpoints have changed over the last year and a half, because I did my research and opened my mind to the different viewpoints of others.
