Violence at Berkeley
« on: February 04, 2017, 05:53:18 pm »
http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/01/us/milo-yiannopoulos-berkeley/

BREAKING NEWS: Self-proclaimed "anti-fascists" use fascist tactics to silence people they don't like. Irony completely lost.

From what I've heard, Yiannopoulos is a douchebag. But that's nowhere close to a justification for this.

The people behind the violence weren't part of the original group.

That's what the article says. I never said otherwise.

I hate how these people come along and ruin a peaceful protest. Way to give fuel to the other side.

I'm hesitant to use the term, but it honestly wouldn't surprise me if the violence was the result of a false flag operation.
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Quote from: Drago Musevini's 'Manifesto'
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Which is a problem. If you are powerless.

Mmm... it's possible, but I don't think it's very likely.

I heard that it was just a bunch of anarchist twats that started it.  Gotta love how anarchists manage to fuck up everything they touch, the adolescent little cunts.

Gotta love student protesters. There's nothing quite as delightful as ignorance and arrogance in one loud and obnoxious package.

Same thing happens in Finnish protests. There's a small group of extremely violent anarchists who show up to every protest they can just so that they can scream abot cops being fascist pigs and break other people's property.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Thing is, Milo loves this sort of shit. It gives credence to his claim to be "dangerous" instead of the little gobshite troll that he is.

And would you look at that, people were cheering them on. Not just randos on Twitter, either. This just keeps getting better and better!

Okay, let's break this down. You decry the fact that people are cheering them on, and explicitly say that it's not just "randos on Twitter either". So let's look at who exactly is "cheering them on", shall we? We have... Lexi Alexander, some film director I've never heard of... okay, Sarah Silverman, I have heard of her at least! Too bad she's not really anyone with any real power, so her opinion is kind of irrelevant. Who else? A professor, Angus Johnson. Okay, it might be a little off for a professor to be saying something like this, I'll give you that. I see his point, though. After that, we have Austin Walker, apparently the EIC of a gaming website. Woo, I literally do not care what he thinks. A pair of literally random feminists who don't even seem to have a job title. WHO CARES. A producer of some kid's TV show. Again, WHO CARES. Fucking Laci Green, of all people. The list goes on and on, most of the people after it are Gamergate opponents, noticeably...

What this list is missing is anyone with any real power speaking out in favor of the protests. Where's the head of Berkeley speaking out in favor? Where's the police chief of the city speaking out in favor? Where's LITERALLY ANYONE WITH ANY SORT OF REAL POWER SPEAKING OUT IN FAVOR OF THESE PROTESTS!? Celebrities have no power. And most of these people aren't even real celebrities. C-list at the very best. Who cares what they think? Why does their opinion matter to you? You can find a subset of any population willing to speak out in favor of anything.

And for that matter, where the hell did you even get this source? Do you actually read this dreck or did you just do a google search for "left wing celebrates Berkeley protest"? Because either one is pretty damning, you know. I mean, seriously, did you look at the trending articles? Right at the top is "The Left is living in a Nazi Fever Dream" and "Trump's SCOTUS Pick Neil Gorsuch Fought Social Justice Warriors Before it was Cool". This site is biased to all fuck and back.
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

Personally I was wavering about supporting the 'antifa' movement but now that a gaming journalist has tweeted their support of it. Well sign me up.

Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?
