An Inconvenient Truth Or Two
Posted by Dave
The rioters were all a bunch of outsiders. They don’t represent the real students at UC-Berkeley. In fact, we are told that it is always these outsider anarchists who are giving UC-Berkeley a bad reputation for violence and mayhem.
This is the line we are given after somebody – we aren’t sure exactly who, but most definitely NOT UC-Berkeley students – tore things up preventing the gay Brietbart staffer, Milo Hanrahan from giving his presentation at the University.
The important thing to understand here is that the rioters – we are told – are NOT, no way, no how, no chance in heaven or hell, actually students at UC-Berkeley, which is the fountainhead from which all free speech flows. That is the most important point here.
The implication of that statement should be clear. Those who watch with dismay and even a bit of anger over what is happening are being told that their judgment is misplaced and improper. That they are painting with a broad brush and blaming people who are not responsible for the violence and destruction instead of the “real culprits.” That makes you a (fill in the blank) who hates other people.
Looking a bit further, we are told over and again by deep thinking leftists that the biggest problem is that Trump was able to convince otherwise good people to support him, which enabled the Alt-Right to win because otherwise good people, who are not in and of themselves, racists, bigots, homophobes and anti-PLRI, supported the Trump and not Hillary, thus while they are not themselves bad people, they helped bad people win.
On the other hand, there is a rather inconvenient problem with the truth of this narrative…
