Berkeley Student Op-Ed: We Had To Get Violent In Self-Defense To People Saying Stuff

Tuesday, in a self-immolating display of narcissistic stupidity, The Daily Californian – the student newspaper for UC Berkeley – ran an op-ed defending the use of violence in shutting down a speech by alt-right popularizer and professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. The op-ed, titled “Violence as self-defense,” was a whole series of op-eds talking about why violence was useful in shutting down political debate.
“To people with platforms who decide when a protest should and should not be violent: You speak from a place of immense privilege. As I recently wrote in a tirade against this brand of idiocy, asking people to maintain peaceful dialogue with those who legitimately do not think their lives matter is a violent act,” wrote Nisa Dang, an alumna of the university.
This is actually evil – the notion that words are violence when the words do not explicitly call for violence is an excuse to beat the living hell out of anyone with whom you disagree. It’s also worthwhile noting that Yiannopoulos, for all his myriad faults, has never said that individuals’ lives don’t matter. That’s a baseless slur.
Illegal immigrant student Juan Prieto explained in an op-ed titled “Violence helped ensure safety of students”: “We share our stories and provide insight to the reality of the flawed immigration system. To out us is to remove that agency from us.” In other words, he’s here illegally, so more illegal activity is necessary to promote the original illegality. Got it.

Sooo, the left is basically saying "violence is permitted if it advances our agenda however any violence from the opposition is not acceptable and will be dealt with"......

Maybe not 'current' as in happened yesterday, but still current as regards their SOP.
Ongoing.
Good reminder, Max. In all the maelstrom of silly bullshit, stuff like this tends to get lost.

Full Throttle
