After left-wing riots at UC-Berkeley for Milo event, Donald Trump threatens to cancel federal funds

StaffRebel Columnist

Donald Trump hinted at canceling federal funding for UC-Berkeley after left-wing rioters were able to cancel a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos.

The President tweeted out, “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”

Last night, left-wing thugs smashed ATMs, attacked women, damaged property and looted a Starbucks. Yes, the same Starbucks that is promising to hire refugees. Let that sink in.

One incident was caught on camera. A woman wearing a Make America Great Again hat was giving an interview when suddenly she was pepper-sprayed by a rioter.

SOUND OFF in the comments: how should these thugs be dealt with?

I would love to see California fracture, with a new independent state in Western California. That’s where the hold out conservatives live.

I can’t help but think that these MSM-coddled, Soros-funded, police-protected, delusional, violent and riot-prone zealots on the left are not going to calm down…or come to their senses!
My emotional response to this says the police need to regularly deploy that tactic where they ring the rioters, push them into a big pile and then arrest them all. Do it every time. Do it seriously, with truncheons, dogs, tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon – no more f**kin’ around with these crazies and criminals!
But then my pragmatic side says that I may regret those words…given that in Canada in the near future it may well be a whack of really pissed off conservatives out there ‘protesting’ Justin and fellow traveler’s lefty/totalitarian regime…and their Globalist pogroms…

Since some American universities are already feeling the pinch of alumni benefactors cutting off funding for their old “snowflake” alma maters, one can only hope Canadians start doing likewise…. So, don’t call “Rye High” Journalism – you lost my respect many years ago…

ABC sure seemed obsessed with not showing swear words on signs and apologizing for any profanity. Seriously who needs them to sanitize the truth for us. Typical MSM.

I hope Trump stands by his tweet. Free speech is essential. Must be fought for. Time to do something about our educators and institutions for sure. Drain that swamp Trump, drain that swamp!
Long live free speech. I know Milo will keep up the fight.
Berkeley time for a purge.

Glenn, now that’s a good country song.

1) antifa and any anarcho communist organizations need to be watched as they are essentially domestic terrorists.
2) people who fund these groups need to be targeted by law enforcement just like If someone were to be discovered to be funding ISIS.
3) the dishonest media need to stop referring to riots in which fires are started, banks are destroyed, and people with dissenting view points are targeted with violence, as protests.
4) law enforcement need to make protecting innocents their top priority, specifically above protecting the rights of assembly for a group of people who promote and perpetrate violence.
5) the legal system needs to identify that mob violence is inherently more dangerous then individual acts of violence and create additional charges for this (not unlike hate crime laws)
6) and society needs to wake up and realize that they are freely giving away their right to free speech every time they demand someone else is silenced based on their imaginary right to not be offended.

the god king emperor trump, the final prophet of kek will fix this.

Typical of the left, they act like Cuck’s when someone they disagree with tries to educate them. From the damage done, one could easily think that they were Muslim Immigrants, trying to get their own way.

That was enjoyable GLENN— reminds me of what HANK WILLIAMS JUNIOR used to do

Zero arrests—-what a great Police Department. Maybe they should let California leave the United States. It wouldn’t take long for it to look like the slum called Tijuana.

Good for Trump! These riots should have been dealt with a looong time ago (cough cough Obama)

How should the regressive thugs be dealt with?

I am old enough to remember that there was at one time these things called laws. Sometimes I entertain my grand-kids with tales about this period in the past. If one broke these laws, particularly laws against harming another person, you were punished regardless of political genre; not that the left gets a free pass and the right is punished but both sides punished equally before the law for crimes against the law.

My grand-kids think I am mythologizing the past…

While I would be totally in agreement with defunding Berkley for a thousand previous sins….producing a generation of pricks as overbearing as the pricks in Maoist China during the “Cultural Revolution” , the administration at Berkley DID permit the event.

The riot should have been forseen given the venue. What was needed would have been a battallion of troops and riot police armed to the teeth and prepared for deployment for the invasion of Poland after kicking the rioters anarcho/communist asses….HEIL DADDY!!
