An activist at US Berkeley Wednesday declared that Milo Yiannopoulos’ use of free speech rhetoric is really a cover for him and his supporters to rape and kill people.
Around the 1:00 mark, a woman took to the megaphone to assert, in part:
“This is not about free speech. These are not people who are interested in any genuine debate. They hide behind that, hypocritically, to try to shut up and put in our places women or Muslims or minority or oppressed groups, but what they’re really trying to do is they’re trying to assert their power, threaten us, intimidate us, rape us, kill us! This is real. This is life and death.”
From the looks of the video clip, it was taken before sundown, after which leftist protests descended into riots and violence. Milo’s talk ended up being cancelled, and the scenes made national news, as fires were set, fireworks launched at buildings, and innocent people beaten with flagpoles.
An innocent woman was pepper sprayed:

A man was also beaten unconscious:
President Trump responded Thursday morning to the violence:
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?
