From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Anti-Milo organizer: Window-smashing Cal protest ‘stunningly successful’

By Matier & Ross, San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 8, 2017

Organizers of the anti-Milo Yiannopoulos demonstration last week at UC Berkeley that ended in $100,000 worth of window-breaking chaos declared it a “stunningly successful” protest — one they’ll happily repeat if the right-wing provocateur tries to return to campus.

“We are happy with the results,” said UC Berkeley Law School alumnus Ronald Cruz of the group By Any Means Necessary, or BAMN. “We were able to meet Mr. Yiannopoulos’ fascist message with massive resistance.”

An estimated 150 “black bloc” anarchists attacked police with rocks and fireworks and used barricades to smash windows at the student union Feb. 1, forcing the cancellation of Yiannopoulos’ appearance.

“We are not affiliated with them, but were united in shutting down the Milo event,” Cruz said.

    His book shot to No. 1 overall on Amazon within a day or two of the riots, and it isn't even being published until next month. It has been No. 1 in the "Censorship & Politics" (?) category ever since. The Kindle edition is currently 3rd in that category, with the Audible audio and CD audio versions coming in 4th and 11th, respectively.

    By preventing a few hundred from seeing Milo speak, they ensured that hundreds of thousands, if not millions, will now read his message. I'll take "How to Self-sabotage for $1000 please, Alex!

    The police overtime (although there did not seem to be any on duty) can add up to quite a bit of money. The City of Berkeley probably just writes it off considering it to be part of enrichment but it adds up, especially for a place like Bezerkeley where the losers are constantly pitching fits.

    In fact, that is another beauty of living in the burbs. Functional respectful people do not tax the city services the same way that dysfunctional people do.

    There is also another secondary cost of these protests. With every cop and his brother watching the riots, it makes the rest of the city less secure while they are going on. I live in a much smaller town close to Berkeley where there might only be 2-4 cops on duty late Sunday night / Monday morning. If somebody get arrested for even something as mundane as DUI, that literally takes half our police force away because it takes 2 cops 4-8 man hours to arrest and book they guy. With the riots there are police reports, property crimes to inspect, escorts to the hospital for people who were hurt. I suspect the Berkeley residents are now totally used to and cowed by mob and don't react much but even the deep blue liberals living there probably just wish they would go somewhere else.

    This is one reason Milo might want to consider holding his talk off campus in a jurisdiction where the liberals do not hold sway. Or he could hold two talks, one on campus and one the next night at the Orinda Library (seating about 80 people). My son goes to SLO and Milo was there the night prior to the Berkeley event where there was a similar albeit less violent reaction. String the events together and shove it in everyone's face and force the suburbanites to see what they have also wrought.
    , @Clyde
    Caen had considerable influence on popular culture, particularly its language. He coined the term beatnik in 1958[11] and popularized hippie during San Francisco's 1967 Summer of Love.[12] He popularized obscure—​​often playful—​​terms such as Frisbeetarianism,[clarification needed] and ribbed nearby Berkeley as Berserkeley for its often-radical politics.[4] His many recurring if irregular features included "Namephreaks"—​​people with names (aptronyms) peculiarly appropriate or inappropriate to their vocations or avocations, such as substitute teacher Mr. Fillin, hospital spokesman Pam Talkington, periodontist Dr. Rott, piano teacher Patience Scales, orthopedic specialist Dr. Kneebone, and the Vatican's spokesman on the evils of rock 'n roll, Cardinal Rapsong.[9]:16-17

    Among the colorful personalities making periodic appearances in Caen's columns was Edsel Ford Fung, whose local reputation as "the world's rudest waiter" was due in no small part to Caen, who lamented his death in 1984

    What in the hell is this idea of 'sanctuary city'?

    A nation is supposed to be a sanctuary for its citizens protected by rule of law.

    Turning cities in that nation into 'sanctuaries' for law-breakers, invaders, and cheaters undermines the very notion of what a nation-state is all about.

    Also, it means that the urban elites, the main power-holders of the nation, prefer to side with illegals and invaders than with their own fellow citizens.

    These 'sanctuary cities' are Above-the-law cities and extralegal cities.
    Also, they want illegals to use as servants for cheap wages and sanctuary-buffer-cushions against black crime.

    Kyle, I actually thought Lot meant Lancaster, NY and Akron, NY which are both suburbs of Buffalo. Interesting backstory, Lancaster's HS teams were called the Redskins, Akron's HS abuts the Tonawanda Indian Reservation and is a little more than 10% native American. Akron refused to play Lancaster in lacrosse because of their racist name. Lancaster's teams are now called the Legends. There is nothing, other than NYS's generous welfare benefits, that would draw illegals to either town/village.

But they won’t do this because they thrive on conflict and feigned outrage – which they are experts at creating. The last thing they want is for Alt-Light “Fascists” like Milo to stop.

    Amasius, a better course of action would be to investigate whether the organized protestors are singularly funded (Soros), cross state lines to engage in felonious activities , pre-plan their violence (intent), and then nail the leaders with a RICO charge and drag them through the court system for the next four years.

    Curious, has RICO ever been previously used in this particular case? Is the statutory language specific enough that prosecutors would be able to lawfully charge Soros using this law?

    Remember, Trump used money from Soros’ hedge fund to help build Trump Tower in Chicago. How would that sit well with Trump’s investors in that now finished project?

    His book shot to No. 1 overall on Amazon within a day or two of the riots, and it isn't even being published until next month. It has been No. 1 in the "Censorship & Politics" (?) category ever since. The Kindle edition is currently 3rd in that category, with the Audible audio and CD audio versions coming in 4th and 11th, respectively.

    By preventing a few hundred from seeing Milo speak, they ensured that hundreds of thousands, if not millions, will now read his message. I'll take "How to Self-sabotage for $1000 please, Alex!

  38. The take away from the Left in regards to Berkeley is this: Violence is a useful tool in shutting down any pro-Trumper/GOP types holding a meeting or get together. And the kicker is, the violence is sanctioned by the city and state authorities.

    What concerns me is the support the rioters are getting from cities and the state and no much from Sorass. Look if the cities and state were pro law and order they’d shut down the rioters hard and fast. Money from the Hungarian Goblin. wouldn’t help in such a environment. Instead the state has chosen to foster the growth of violence against people they don’t like – namely pro-Trump/GOP types.

    The police overtime (although there did not seem to be any on duty) can add up to quite a bit of money. The City of Berkeley probably just writes it off considering it to be part of enrichment but it adds up, especially for a place like Bezerkeley where the losers are constantly pitching fits.

    In fact, that is another beauty of living in the burbs. Functional respectful people do not tax the city services the same way that dysfunctional people do.

    There is also another secondary cost of these protests. With every cop and his brother watching the riots, it makes the rest of the city less secure while they are going on. I live in a much smaller town close to Berkeley where there might only be 2-4 cops on duty late Sunday night / Monday morning. If somebody get arrested for even something as mundane as DUI, that literally takes half our police force away because it takes 2 cops 4-8 man hours to arrest and book they guy. With the riots there are police reports, property crimes to inspect, escorts to the hospital for people who were hurt. I suspect the Berkeley residents are now totally used to and cowed by mob and don’t react much but even the deep blue liberals living there probably just wish they would go somewhere else.

    This is one reason Milo might want to consider holding his talk off campus in a jurisdiction where the liberals do not hold sway. Or he could hold two talks, one on campus and one the next night at the Orinda Library (seating about 80 people). My son goes to SLO and Milo was there the night prior to the Berkeley event where there was a similar albeit less violent reaction. String the events together and shove it in everyone’s face and force the suburbanites to see what they have also wrought.

Akron refused to play Lancaster in lacrosse because of their racist name. Lancaster’s teams are now called the Legends.

    Berkeley Option: “If you say something that offends me, I will bash your skull in with a baseball bat and should have the right to do so.”

    Btw, if we call it ‘free speech’, it puts us on the moral defensive.
    Though legally justified, it implies we are saying something offensive or untrue under protection of free speech laws.

    We must come across as both legally justified and morally justified.
    We must say we want to speak the Truth. Truth is more righteous than ‘free speech’.

    As the MSM spins it, the other side has the truth and we have untruth, but we want to speak our untruth under protection of Free Speech laws.

    No, we have the truth.
    Truth triggers the deluded, and the violent reaction we are seeing is proof that the other side cannot win an argument and must resort to threats and violence.

    TRUTH, not ‘free speech’. We have the right to speak the Truth.

    PS. Too much of the violence is goy vs goy, just as the GLOB wants it. As long as it’s goy vs goy, the GLOG puppet-masters will provoke both sides to attack one another.
    We must change the narrative by focusing on how Jewish Power manipulates these issues to play divide-and-rule by pitting goy vs goy.
    How pathetic that we have white ‘leftists’ allied with POC in attacking other whites?

    Those who control the media control the narrative. And they are the ones who wink-wink encouraged this kind of violence. Open Season was declared with the attack on Richard Spencer. The media not only didn’t condemn it but endorsed it. The message went out loud and clear. ‘Punch Nazis’ and since Trump is ‘literally hitler’, ‘you may hit any trump supporter, and we in the media will not condemn you.’

    What in the hell is this idea of ‘sanctuary city’?

    A nation is supposed to be a sanctuary for its citizens protected by rule of law.

    Turning cities in that nation into ‘sanctuaries’ for law-breakers, invaders, and cheaters undermines the very notion of what a nation-state is all about.

    Also, it means that the urban elites, the main power-holders of the nation, prefer to side with illegals and invaders than with their own fellow citizens.

    The apparent non-action by police in some cases may be somewhat similar to how they handle car chases. (Although hard to understand why they stand by for the injuries and property damage, perhaps to prevent greater problems?) In SoCal, we are treated to the televised chases regularly. In the past, there might have been aggressive driving, pit maneuvers, spike strips and shooting. Now they let the perp drive himself out rather than endangering a lot of bystanders. Most of the runners end up driving in circles and then either make a mistake by driving into a tight spot or exiting the car and running for a few blocks, all lit up by the copper chopper, before the dogs or officers catch them. In either case, there is a foregone conclusion aspect. Sadly, our brilliant lower orders seem to want to relearn that.

    The Berkeley protestors remind me that there is nothing new under the sun. They want to ignore history, pretend that they are omniscient and omnipotent, all while assuming that they are invisible. (Side note re tequila: 1 drink, I'm good looking; 2, I'm tough; 3, I'm bullet proof; 4, I'm invisible, or some variation thereon). All it would take is to unmask one or two protestors and their little cabal would collapse on itself. The bravado exhibited on the front lines would vanish in the holding cell away from cameras and close to people exhibiting more variable or non-standard behavior. Those punks would dream of getting their Normie on to blend into the crowd instead of sticking out like targets for less-coddled cellies to disabuse.

If I'm not wrong he actually fought with a "free regiment." The book makes the context clear, and it's one our collective memory has obscured for whatever reason. (Actually, I know the reason.)

    The history books would have them as proto-Nazis and mere right-wing Death Squads who killed innocent people because they didn't like the Weimar Republic and resented losing the war. Forgotten is that the immediate post-WWI era was a heyday for communist expansionism. Much like the aftermath of WWII, only less successfully so. The international communist conspiracy knew how to take advantage of crisis points in history.

    Not only was there the Spartacist uprising, but the commies had to be pushed back in Prussia, Silesia, Poland, the Baltic states. This was the same time the Russian civil war was raging, remember. There's nothing to say the Reds couldn't have spread west then, as they did later. It required killing them to stop them. Something the Western powers were noticeably reluctant to do, despite their penchant for global meddling. Paramilitary groups jumped into the gap.

    Leftists suffer from premature exultation. They are always talking about the chickens coming home to roost but it never occurs to them that THEIR actions will create a backlash.

    Leftist Senate exults in getting rid of filibuster so Obamacare can pass. Premature exultation- now Republicans can repeal in the same way.

    Leftist President exults in ruling by Executive Order. Premature exultation- now Trump can rule in the same way.

    Leftist rioters exult in shutting down free speech. Premature exultation- now the right can shut down their speech in the same way.

    Left was always worried about Trumpist brownshirts who didn't really exist, but if they keep going, they WILL exist. Freikorps appeared to counter leftist mobs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spartacist_uprising#Attack_by_the_Freikorps

    I recently read a novel about the Freikorps by Ernst Von Salomon, a rightist non-Nazi author of the 30s, called The Outlaws. It was pretty good. If I’m not wrong he actually fought with a “free regiment.” The book makes the context clear, and it’s one our collective memory has obscured for whatever reason. (Actually, I know the reason.)

    The history books would have them as proto-Nazis and mere right-wing Death Squads who killed innocent people because they didn’t like the Weimar Republic and resented losing the war. Forgotten is that the immediate post-WWI era was a heyday for communist expansionism. Much like the aftermath of WWII, only less successfully so. The international communist conspiracy knew how to take advantage of crisis points in history.

    Not only was there the Spartacist uprising, but the commies had to be pushed back in Prussia, Silesia, Poland, the Baltic states. This was the same time the Russian civil war was raging, remember. There’s nothing to say the Reds couldn’t have spread west then, as they did later. It required killing them to stop them. Something the Western powers were noticeably reluctant to do, despite their penchant for global meddling. Paramilitary groups jumped into the gap.

    Tl;dr: commies started it.

    Kiara Robles is the beautiful young lady who was viciously attacked by the howling mob at UC Berkeley. Robles was pepper sprayed by a rioting thug. She is a lesbian and extremely articulate. Robles says that the UC Berkeley administration encouraged the violence by suggesting that the Milo political event should be shut down.

    Robles says in the video that she was made a symbol of FREE SPEECH on the right. Robles also says that the media decided that every Trump supporter is a racist and a bigoted homophobe, and as a lesbian herself, she finds that ridiculous.

    Robles says that in order to get a platform in this country you need to be attacked. Robles is a fine young lady who recognizes that the anti-free speech left has lost its marbles.

    Sadly, I must report that Kiara Robles is as vain a young lady as you'll ever find. Robles lets loose with this doozy: "Calling lesbians ugly -- although it is not true in this case -- is also legal." Robles is an adorable sweetheart, so we must forgive her for her youthful vanity.

    Robles also says she is half White. Which half? She looks damn White to me.

    Kiara Robles has had enough of the anti-free speech nonsense. How about you?

    Most of these politically incorrect female vloggers seem to be big on vanity – Laura Southern, Syrian Girl, Faith Goldy, Kristin Tate etc, and pretty much every second comment on their video posts is a joke about blow jobs. I don’t know whether they actually are as vain as they appear or whether they just doll themselves up to attract web traffic, probably a bit of both.

    The police overtime (although there did not seem to be any on duty) can add up to quite a bit of money. The City of Berkeley probably just writes it off considering it to be part of enrichment but it adds up, especially for a place like Bezerkeley where the losers are constantly pitching fits.

    In fact, that is another beauty of living in the burbs. Functional respectful people do not tax the city services the same way that dysfunctional people do.

    There is also another secondary cost of these protests. With every cop and his brother watching the riots, it makes the rest of the city less secure while they are going on. I live in a much smaller town close to Berkeley where there might only be 2-4 cops on duty late Sunday night / Monday morning. If somebody get arrested for even something as mundane as DUI, that literally takes half our police force away because it takes 2 cops 4-8 man hours to arrest and book they guy. With the riots there are police reports, property crimes to inspect, escorts to the hospital for people who were hurt. I suspect the Berkeley residents are now totally used to and cowed by mob and don't react much but even the deep blue liberals living there probably just wish they would go somewhere else.

    This is one reason Milo might want to consider holding his talk off campus in a jurisdiction where the liberals do not hold sway. Or he could hold two talks, one on campus and one the next night at the Orinda Library (seating about 80 people). My son goes to SLO and Milo was there the night prior to the Berkeley event where there was a similar albeit less violent reaction. String the events together and shove it in everyone's face and force the suburbanites to see what they have also wrought.

    The entire point of Milo is to invade their “safe spaces.” It wouldn’t do for him to go where libs don’t hold sway.

    Corvinus, I put always in, took it out and put it back, but you are right. I am truly amazed that the police walk along side of, behind and in front of these violent thugs and arrest no one. I wonder why that is? I agree, enforce the existing laws.

    The apparent non-action by police in some cases may be somewhat similar to how they handle car chases. (Although hard to understand why they stand by for the injuries and property damage, perhaps to prevent greater problems?) In SoCal, we are treated to the televised chases regularly. In the past, there might have been aggressive driving, pit maneuvers, spike strips and shooting. Now they let the perp drive himself out rather than endangering a lot of bystanders. Most of the runners end up driving in circles and then either make a mistake by driving into a tight spot or exiting the car and running for a few blocks, all lit up by the copper chopper, before the dogs or officers catch them. In either case, there is a foregone conclusion aspect. Sadly, our brilliant lower orders seem to want to relearn that.

    The Berkeley protestors remind me that there is nothing new under the sun. They want to ignore history, pretend that they are omniscient and omnipotent, all while assuming that they are invisible. (Side note re tequila: 1 drink, I’m good looking; 2, I’m tough; 3, I’m bullet proof; 4, I’m invisible, or some variation thereon). All it would take is to unmask one or two protestors and their little cabal would collapse on itself. The bravado exhibited on the front lines would vanish in the holding cell away from cameras and close to people exhibiting more variable or non-standard behavior. Those punks would dream of getting their Normie on to blend into the crowd instead of sticking out like targets for less-coddled cellies to disabuse.

    The Bay Area police would probably need to pinch a couple dozen of them to put a serious dent in things. Convict them on a felony charge and put them in the stir for several months, with a few years of probation. If they get picked up again it's back to the stoney lonesome. At the end of probation they'll probably age out of the scene, all while serving as a cautionary tale.

    From the videos of the riots it looks like there's some hierarchy in the anarchist events, and not all of the anarchists on scene are masked and beating on someone. I think the "direct action" types are to an extent cannon fodder, and the police should move up the foot chain a bit.

    I don't think the thugs will limit themselves to street action going forward. They'll probably start attacking their opponents in places other than rallies.

    The local authorities are refraining from providing protection to the politically unpopular and in effect giving license to the thugs. This is one reason why the Second Amendment is good. If the government decides to stop protecting unfavored citizens from crime then those pariahs have the means to their natural right of self defense when attacked.

    What in the hell is this idea of 'sanctuary city'?

    A nation is supposed to be a sanctuary for its citizens protected by rule of law.

    Turning cities in that nation into 'sanctuaries' for law-breakers, invaders, and cheaters undermines the very notion of what a nation-state is all about.

    Also, it means that the urban elites, the main power-holders of the nation, prefer to side with illegals and invaders than with their own fellow citizens.

    These 'sanctuary cities' are Above-the-law cities and extralegal cities.
    Also, they want illegals to use as servants for cheap wages and sanctuary-buffer-cushions against black crime.

    Here’s a though experiment. Imagine a sanctuary city where the mayor announces that the city will not enforce anti-discrimination laws and that restaurants are free to exclude blacks if they want to. How long do you think that would last, hmmm?

    A sanctuary city is a place like Chicago where you can have almost 5,000 shootings and 750+ dead and nobody gives a damn. Even Obama only went back for fundraisers in 2016. So if you’re a gang-banger it’s a great sanctuary.

  77. My plan ,if I were the president,would be to order the FBI to investigate these left wing terrorism plots the same way, and with as much enthusiasm as they do with suspected ISIS cells. That would mean setting up stings to see if the little badass freedom fighters are ready to take to the next level by purchasing explosives. Also they need to out some agents undercover to infiltrate these goon squads. This might give them the opportunity to find out who is really at the bottom of these terrorist plots by following the money trail. It will probably lead back to some well known figures in the news regularly. Funding terrorism would probably bring a hefty prison sentence.

    Berkeley Option: "If you say something that offends me, I will bash your skull in with a baseball bat and should have the right to do so."

    Btw, if we call it 'free speech', it puts us on the moral defensive.
    Though legally justified, it implies we are saying something offensive or untrue under protection of free speech laws.

    We must come across as both legally justified and morally justified.
    We must say we want to speak the Truth. Truth is more righteous than 'free speech'.

    As the MSM spins it, the other side has the truth and we have untruth, but we want to speak our untruth under protection of Free Speech laws.

    No, we have the truth.
    Truth triggers the deluded, and the violent reaction we are seeing is proof that the other side cannot win an argument and must resort to threats and violence.

    TRUTH, not 'free speech'. We have the right to speak the Truth.

    PS. Too much of the violence is goy vs goy, just as the GLOB wants it. As long as it's goy vs goy, the GLOG puppet-masters will provoke both sides to attack one another.
    We must change the narrative by focusing on how Jewish Power manipulates these issues to play divide-and-rule by pitting goy vs goy.

    Those who control the media control the narrative. And they are the ones who wink-wink encouraged this kind of violence. Open Season was declared with the attack on Richard Spencer. The media not only didn't condemn it but endorsed it. The message went out loud and clear. 'Punch Nazis' and since Trump is 'literally hitler', 'you may hit any trump supporter, and we in the media will not condemn you.'

    Yes, great idea. Make it all about the Joos. That’s the highway to fame, fortune and power in modern America! No more hiding behind wishy, wash labels. Proclaim the truth! You first, Anon.

    "Who cares? Trump’s organization paid back what was owed."

    So Trump's allies are all over Soros for his funding of leftist causes, but nary a concern for his funding of Trump's business enterprises? Did not Trump use "dirty money"? So, as long as Soros' money will help Trump and his buddies earn profits, Soros serves a useful purpose. Seems hypocritical to me.

    “Seems hypocritical to me”

    Does it, really?

    BAMN are supposedly the “militant” faction of UEAA made up of cultural
    marxists and other degenerates who’ve never lived under communist rule.

    “Useful idiots” as Yuri Bezmenov once said.

    "It’s past time for Trump to dedicate the majority of federal law enforcement resources into targeting the left."

    Yes, targeting the left that advocates the use of violence as legitimate protest, specifically the "By Any Means Necessary" group, but not the left in general. Next time clarify.

    “Yes, targeting the left that advocates the use of violence as legitimate protest, specifically the “By Any Means Necessary” group, but not the left in general. Next time clarify.”

    Who appointed you language monitor? Maybe he meant the left in general.

    The left needs to be undermined politically. That is what politics is – strengthening one’s own side at the expense of ones opponents, especially when the opponents are actual enemies.

    Now, this isn't right, either. Pro-lifers had every liberty to be included in this Women's Right March. I smell hypocrisy.

    Except if Soros is a sworn enemy, one who promotes evil, of the Alt Right and conservatives, and said members take his money for business opportunities, they compromised their own position by having direct dealings with him. They're hypocrites. Blood money is on their hands.
