He Said That? 2/2/17

Here is a video of Milo Yiannopoulos’s speech Wednesday at the University of California at Berkeley, home of the Free Speech Movement in the 1960s:




Oh, wait, there was no speech. Rioters assaulted attendees, started fires, smashed shops, and attacked people’s cars, forcing the speech to be canceled. We’ll see how many of the rioters who committed these crimes go to jail. They should all be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, but they won’t be. The rioters will undoubtedly claim they were, among other things, protesting on behalf of various minorities’ rights, but in so doing they abridged the free speech right of the smallest minority—an individual—and the rights of all those who wanted to hear him. The rioters are the enemies of rights, not their protectors.
