The angry left scores another 'victory' over the First Amendment

In a culture where the mainstream media legitimizes violent protests of anything the far left disapproves of (and note that Democratic VP candidate Tim Kaine called for the left to “fight in the streets” the other day), is it any wonder they think it's perfectly legitimate to riot against someone who wants due process in college sexual assault proceedings?

Last night at Berkeley, there were assaults and bloodshed, fires and vandalism. See here and here and here.  And Milo Yiannopoulos, the target of their hate, was forced to cancel yet another speech on a college campus because his message is too offensive for the left's delicate ears. Chalk up another "victory" over the First Amendment.

We are reaching the point where we must openly wonder what good is it to have a "right" you can't practice? Do you really have that right?

The peace-loving, enlightened left does not believe in due process, free speech, the rule of law, or the United States Constitution anymore. They believe that it is legitimate to achieve the goals of their victim groups constituents at any cost.

God bless Donald Trump who tweeted: "If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view - NO FEDERAL FUNDS?"

Amen, Mr. President.
