Massive rioting took place last night at U.C. Berkeley in response to a planned campus speech by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos. There, “tolerant” liberal students beat Trump supporters, smashed ATM and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, pepper sprayed innocent bystanders, and set fires in the streets.
Now, however, these acts of violence have come back to bite Berkeley in a big way.
Breitbart reported that Trump fired back at Berkeley on Thursday to let them know that attacks on free speech such as this will not be tolerated.
“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Trump wrote on Twitter.

This came after UC-Berkeley police were forced to cancel their event after security failed. Yiannopoulos was immediately evacuated from the area.
“The left is profoundly antithetical to free speech these days, does not want to hear alternative points of view, and will do anything to shut it down,” Yiannopoulos told Fox News Wednesday night. “My point is being proven over and over and over again.”
Liberals are always preaching about tolerance, yet these days, they are only open to views that match their own.
