The Fascism Of The Lawless Left

The birthplace of the free speech movement, UC Berkeley, was desecrated recently by a platoon of masked cowards who set fires, smashed windows, and assaulted peaceful people who had gathered there to hear a talk by infamous internet maven, Milo Yiannopoulos. Their efforts were successful: Milo canceled his appearance and the perpetrators of the inexcusable violence faded into the night. Not a single arrest was made in a stunning instance of law enforcement joining the lawless to make a mockery of the rule of law. These terrorists are not some modern version of good Samaritans, they are mercenaries, they are harbingers of what they claim to fight: fascism. The terrorism inflicted at Berkeley mirrored the violence of identically masked terrorists who wreaked the same spineless mischief in Washington, D.C. during the inaugural rituals of our latest president. Throughout the course of the contentious election season, the same craven and horrifying behavior was present at Trump rallies where provocateurs burned cars and destroyed storefronts and physically attacked many of those… Keep Reading

How Reagan Handled Out Of Control Berkeley Hippies

On Wednesday, Alt-Right provocateur Milo Yiannopolous held an event at the University of California at Berkeley. It was taken over by violent protesters who used pepper spray and metal poles to assault Trump supporters and those who came to hear Milo. Demonstrations and violence against those engaging in free speech are becoming more and more common at campuses across the U.S. as leftists continue to shut down speakers that they don’t agree with. Regardless of whether or not we agree with Milo or any of the things that he was speaking about on campus, shutting him down is not appropriate. The best strategy for combating rhetoric that is problematic is simply to debunk it using facts, statistics, and empirical evidence rather than shutting down the person who is speaking or attacking the messenger ad-hominem. What was even more stunning than the deplorable behavior of the rioters was the lack of any law enforcement presence. Rioters hurt people, started fires, looted, and vandalized buildings with impunity. Security was nowhere to… Keep Reading

YAL Leader Promoted After Calling All Trump Supporters Racists

The unfortunate news came Tuesday that Ty Hicks, the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) National Field Director who declared that all Trump supporters are racist, has been promoted to Executive Vice President of YAL. This news comes on the heels of the election of Donald Trump, who received support from a wide swath of youth activists from across the conservative and libertarian movements, some of whom are YAL activists. The anti establishment wave that swept through the nation this year has energized the right wing in a way that we haven’t seen in a very long time, a position that libertarians should be poised to capitalize on with a bold populist message. Unfortunately, this latest move sends a message that the YAL leadership does not share this vision of the future and is perhaps growing insensitive to the prospect of alienating wide swaths of the conservative movement. To understand how we got here, let’s briefly review the events of recent months. Keep Reading
