Meet a Berkeley Progressive for Free Speech

Faith GoldyArchive

Amid the rise of the radical leftist group Antifa, and their violent tactics to achieve political ends, I found one progressive on the ground in Berkeley who is willing to reject the decline of reason and debate on the Left. 

Could Antifa's violence lead to more progressives distancing themselves from the current anti-free speech culture on the Left, or is this man destined to remain in the minority?

It’s a sad commentary on our society, that we are having this kind of discussion on free speech. When I think of the people who made the ultimate sacrifice over the years, to defend our way of life, they must be rolling over in their graves, at what these leftist morons are doing. They are just blind pawns being used by the muslims, to destroy the one right and privilege we have, to stop them in their takeover of us infidels. I salute all out there, who speak their minds, not just on-line but in public where it matters most. We must continue to let our voice be heard, while we still have the right to do so. Do not fool yourself into thinking that, this is the next generations problem. M-103 should have been a major wakeup call for all who care about free speech, and the slow systematic takeover of islam. I know a large segment of the population was sickened by this M-103 proposal, yet so few went out there and protested, to let their voice be heard, as a result this ridiculous motion has passed two hearing in our parliament. Should we fail to act, this motion will become a Bill and we have handed an other weapon to be used against us. Social media has so far worked in their favour and we need to turn the tide. When you find out about any protest or demonstration being held near you, get out there. We can only help our cause if we are visible. The media loves to show the left, has having some moral high ground. If we are not seen, then only the left will be, and these controlled idiots message will be the ONLY one heard.

This man is what we used to call a liberal. Sometimes right, sometimes wrong but had common ground with the populist right in supporting constitutional rights and engaging reason and argument instead of violence, censorship and monolithic dogma. These things used to be anethema to liberal ideals, but are now core to leftists calling themselves liberal progressives. The spot on the political spectrum vacated by liberals as they scrambled down the scale toward fascism, is now taken up by libertarians and the new right.

I think this man sits as a social gauge as to how far the left has drifted from reason,civility and love of freedom to despotic dogmatism.

Perfect exemple of a former hippy who has no idea that the left is totally aligned with islam. At least, he knows that free speech is freedom.

Him wearing a green shirt , aren’t the greens the cover for the Reds
I’m sure he was naively indoctrinated all his life , but still doesn’t have a clue who is behind antifa— Obama knows

Sometimes, as you get older, you realize that talking is a lot less painful than acting like a maladjusted Monkey.

The gentleman looks sincere is his opinion of free speech. BUT if he thinks the left leaning people of Berkeley is mistaken. These radical communists are not the kind of people want to talk they want to create havic

Well, it is nice to know that not all on the political left are anti-free speech.

Maybe the left that are for free speech should “clean up their house” and take care of those lefties that are against free speech.
