Berkeley Student Government Doesn’t Condemn Antifa

, Accuracy in Academia, 4 Comments

Provocative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos announced that he was going to hold a “Free Speech Week” at the University of California-Berkeley this week, and in response, the student government condemned radical voices like his, but not the violence of the likes of Antifa, an alleged anti-fascist group.

Why condemn one group of radical voices, but not the other?

    Because one radical group is showing up to inflict violence.
    The other is showing up to hit them back.
    One group is made of fascists, who have a history of mass murder, who have spent weeks openly expressing their violent intentions in coming to Berkeley, for which authorities have done nothing to hinder.

    The other group is anti-fascist, a decades old amorphous group of citizens who protect people from fascists by throwing themselves at fascists before they can organize a massive attack against people unable or unwilling to fight back.

    So yes, why would anyone like one “radical” group and not the other?
    What a really complicated issue this must be.

    I love the “alleged”. No, Antifa isn’t an “alleged anti-fascist group” — they ARE anti-fascist. Why are you not, Right Wing Noise Machine?

    Antifa is a violent group of thugs who need to be in jail when they harm others and break things and cause chaos.
