The #Trump rally in Berkeley has broken out in violence four minutes before the march is supposed to start.
5:00 PM – 4 Mar 2017 · Berkeley, CA
The display of intolerance comes less than a month after violent rioting took place at the school over the scheduled appearance by now-former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
There were multiple confrontations during the “March 4 Trump” rally, which was part of a nationwide effort Saturday to show unity for President Donald Trump.
It’s difficult to say who started the violence, but much of it appeared to originate with so-called “anti-fascist” masked thugs known as antifa. There were early reports that the pro-Trump crowd was being pepper sprayed.
But that didn’t stop the media from putting one helluva spin on events, as seen in a report from The Hill that featured this headline: “Pro-Trump Berkeley protests get physical.”
Of course, technically speaking, if you are defending yourself from getting beaten to a bloody pulp, that would include the need to “get physical.”
