    I guess freedom of speech doesn’t apply to conservatives.

    Yeah. what’s the big deal? The “Constitution” guarantees “us” the right to loot and burn doesn’t it? Well, according to D. J. Trump, it does, so there!

    A reference:

    " …

    Anarchists from around the Bay Area, NOT Cal students, were the ones who demonstrated violently last night in Berkeley. Utilizing typical black bloc techniques, they hijacked last night’s peaceful student protest of a certain speaker and turned it into the uncomfortable display that was aired throughout the nation.

    …"

    The rioters are doing the same thing as the Nazis ,an acronym for National Socialist German Workers Party,in the 1920’s and 30’s.

    Anyone else notice that the rioters have no idea how Nazi and Communist like they really are?

    Some should study History.

    Your “hate speech” is tolerated though. All I ever see posted by you is calling people liars and unsubstantiated hateful remarks about others beliefs or ideologies. Get a clue.

    They were free to invite him, the students were free not to go. The patriotic protesters are free to have their speech as well. If you don’t agree with one of these groups, their speech is the most important to defend.

    I well remember the anti-Nam Berkeley protests of the 60’s. What I see now are the Trump inspired masked folks deliberately causing violence to discredit peaceful protest. Not all of course, like SDS, were innocent, but Trump encouraged violence throughout his campaign, so what’s the real deal?

    Millions of people marching PEACEFULLY against Trump, and fascist-sympathizer Lisa Benson zeroes in on 30 masked thugs who attacked businesses in Berkeley, thereby using the standard right-wing tactic that all liberals are like that. Never mind that it was a setup, with a neo-Nazi deliberately selecting that site, knowing there would be a confrontation, and the dumbass thugs stepped right into their political trap to provide illogical right-wing political talking points exactly like this one.

    You gonna tell me, “Lisa”, that the millions of people protesting against Trump are ALL rioters? How asinine is that, and what does it say about the people who believe that illogic?

    Hey Lisa, using your logic, I’m in California so I guess that makes me a “Surfer”, huh? Actually, that’s not a very good analogy. Proportionately, there a lot more surfers in CA than there have been rioters among the millions of marchers.

    And from this, the Trump shills above all sadly nod their heads, accepting the truly stupid conclusion that all liberals are rioters. Do you people even have a_brain_, that you are unable to see the illogic of this political talking point? That is as seriously ignorant as describing an elephant as a snake if you were just looking at the tip of the tail. More likely, it’s wilful ignorance, coming from a real hatred of most people in this world, which is just plain sad. Regardless, you are being played as real suckers by the hucksters and carny barkers, who are busy robbing you blind.

    At least we can admit that Lisa has been consistent with her vile bias and snake-oil pitch, which is nothing but pure stink bait from a person who checks in her moral conscience for money. The people who eat it up like candy have no such excuse.

    The liberals only want to burn and riot. The conservative only want to ban and kill muslims. Is that the conclusion everyone is heading to?
