Current State of Free Speech at Berkeley

In the mid-1960s, Berkeley was home of the Free Speech Movement. “Students insisted that the university administration lift the ban of on-campus political activities and acknowledge the students’ right to free speech and academic freedom.” The movement was driven by the radical New Left. But then the Left became the establishment. An incident that occurred on Tuesday involving the conservative group TPUSA demonstrates how much respect the concept of free speech gets at Berkeley now:

In the incident, captured on cellphone video, two males walked up to the table containing information about Turning Point USA and engaged in an argument with Hayden Williams, who was sitting there.

As Williams began to film the incident with his cell phone, one of the men is seen punching him several times. It was also filmed by at least one witness.

The Turning Point table was also knocked over and their signs were ripped, according to accounts by people who were there.

The moonbats didn’t like the sign at Williams’ table reading “Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims.” This referred to the Jussie Smollett hoax, which involved imaginary Trump supporters behaving like thugs. Other signs at the table indicated support for Trump. The assailants helpfully demonstrated who the real victims of political violence tend to be in this country.

Twitter erupted with other moonbats praising the attack. University employee Yuvi Panda was particularly pleased:

“OH MY GOD THE MAGA PEOPLE ON UC BERKELEY CAMPUS YESTERDAY GOT PUNCHED IN THE FACE BY SOMEONE THIS MAKES ME FEEL EMOTIONALLY SO MUCH BETTER,” Yuvi Panda, who works for Berkeley Institute for Data Science, wrote Wednesday. “Thank you, random stranger for not letting it go unchallenged. Hope you aren’t in too much trouble. F*ck you, Turning Point USA.”

Hayden Williams tells the harrowing tale of his encounter with liberal tolerance:
