Crisis, What Crisis?

More history, less hysteria

Milo at Berkeley

The law of unintended consequences is at work in Berkeley, CA.  Antifa rioters prevented bad-boy conservative Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking at the university last May, but with their unprovoked attacks on peaceful demonstrators last weekend, they've worn out their welcome.  A student group has invited Milo back in September.  Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin has asked the university to cancel the gig.  The university has responded"We have neither the legal right or desire to interfere with or cancel their invitations based on the perspectives and beliefs of the speakers."  University students are adults.  They will survive anything Milo might say.  The spirit of Sixties Berkeley endures.
