Domestic Terrorism Hits UC Berkeley and Our Media Only Encourages More

Just a few years ago, whenever a group of Tea Partiers got together to listen to speeches about America’s founding principles, exchange email addresses, and pick up their own litter, our national media would shift into a frenzy. And the most polite and peaceful protests imaginable would be portrayed as Nazi rallies.

The irony was rich. Nazi Germany was a National Socialist state. But that didn’t stop the liars in the media from portraying a homemade sign protesting socialism as proof of creeping Nazism. At one Tea party event after another, frustration never once turned to rage, and you never saw any violence, vandalism, or even a scrap of paper left on the ground.

The Tea Party was so innocuous (and ultimately effective) that a desperate media was forced to manufacture evidence of racism and violence. The Washington Post and NBC News spent weeks spreading a debunked N-word smear. NBC even went so far as to fabricate a video that changed the race of a Tea Partier, from black to white.

Fast-forward to 2017.

Wednesday night at UC Berkeley, domestic terrorists arrived on the scene to shut down an event hosted by Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos (full disclosure: I’ve worked with, know and admire Milo). If you think “terrorist” is too strong a word, here is a breakdown of reported events, most of it committed by a roving gang of masked thugs dressed in black.

Breitbart News live-blogged the evening and it literally reads like something out of 1932 Nazi rally.

So what is the textbook definition of terrorism:

1) the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

2) the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

Is there anyone who still wishes to argue that what happened last night was anything other than an act of organized domestic terrorism?

Actually, yes… All of the national media.

According to CNN, last night’s terrorism was merely a “protest.” The Least Trusted Name In News could not even bring itself to pop the word “violence” into a headline.

The left-wing Washington Post found a way to put “Trump” in almost every headline.

The left-wing New York Times is pretending nothing really happened.

NBC News managed to use the word “violence,” but hugged the word “protest” for dear life. The left-wing network that spent years smearing the Tea Party couldn’t even find the word “riot.”

Need I go on?

It actually gets worse. If you read the articles, the media (especially CNN and The Washington Post) is all but turning these terrorists into folk heroes against that “evil Milo” — an openly gay man who doesn’t think and believe in the way he is supposed to.

Overall, though, whether it is Black Lives Matter, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Madonna, Robert DeNiro, The New York Times, or CNN’s hideously evil work to foment violence against Trump and race riots in Ferguson and Baltimore — by excusing, rationalizing, downplaying, and ignoring the growing political violence we are seeing from the Left, the national media is, on various levels, consciously encouraging this violence.

And when you compare the media’s attitude towards the Tea Party, to what happened at UC Berkeley, the only conclusion you can come to is that the media is authorizing domestic terrorism if it advances their leftwing political goals.

Moreover, by shrugging at Wednesday night’s physical assaults, looting, fires and wanton property damage, the media is consciously and purposely sending a signal that encourages more of this behavior.

This is no joke.

This is Nazi Germany circa 1932.

You need to be able to defend yourself, your family, and your property.

If you haven’t already, buy guns and learn how to use them.

Trust me, we are only at the beginning of the beginning.
