In February, the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party, the so-called “Antifa” (“antifascist”), rioted at University of California at Berkeley in order to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos from delivering a speech. The anti-American leftist thugs randomly assaulted innocents, threw Molotov cocktails, clashed with police, and smashed windows. By the time it was all said and done, they had caused well over $100,000 worth of property damage.
This is now being regarded as the first Battle for Berkeley. And the left won.
In March, a pro-Trump rally was held once more at the home of the so-called “free speech movement.” It was here that the world was introduced to Kyle Chapman, aka, “the Based Stickman.” The latter, along with several other patriots who were disgusted at the sight of rabid leftists beating up innocents while the police did absolutely nothing, came prepared to do battle. In spite of being outnumbered, Chapman and his brothers-in-arms protected innocents and held their ground.
Physically speaking, the second Battle for Berkeley was a draw of sorts. However, the Stickman instantly became an internet sensation, a meme that went viral. Psychologically speaking, this battle was a victory for the right, for the Stickman symbolized for countless numbers that if only American patriots would dare to stand up to leftist thugs, they could and would prevail.
On April 15, the Patriots held one more rally at Berkeley. The “Antifa” arrived in large numbers. They were armed with every weapon short of a gun. The police, under the order of a leftist mayor, again stood down.
Only this time, the Patriots descended upon Berkeley in numbers dwarfing those that had appeared in the past. Though they had been disarmed by police, they had their helmets and shields.
And they were pissed.
When the anti-Americans charged, the Patriots fought back. They inflicted a humiliating—though richly deserved—beating upon the terrorists before chasing them from their home, the heart of Leftism.
Footage of the Battle of Berkeley 3 is all over the internet. Even the anti-American leftists had no option but to acknowledge that they lost. The right achieved a glorious victory, both physically and psychologically.
When Ann Coulter ultimately backed out of the speech that she swore she would deliver at Berkeley on Thursday, April 27, many of those Patriots who traveled from across the country to support her were, at the very least, disappointed. Coulter gave conflicting reasons for her reversal: (1) The Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), which was supposed to sponsor her, tucked its tail between its legs and ran; and (2) She didn’t trust Berkeley administrators and police to protect her.
Neither of these excuses passes the smell test.
Coulter is a woman of means. She could have easily arranged to speak on her own dime—as did many others, folks with far fewer resources than Ann possesses, who came to Berkeley on the 27th to speak in her place. As far as protection goes, she knew in advance that legions of patriots had planned on being in Berkeley to safeguard her and the right of all Americans to self-expression.
Coulter hinted that she may still swing by Berkeley to say “hello” to her supporters. She didn’t even do that much. She should have.
By all accounts, thankfully, no one was harmed. Remarkably, there was no violence.
The “Antifa” was present. So too, though, were the Patriots—the Proud Boys, Bikers for Trump, Civil Defense Action, the Oath Keepers, the Three Percenters. And the latter were ready to defend themselves and innocents if the police had planned on following what had become their standard operating procedure.
Yet—surprise, surprise!—the police were proactive this time around. They were actually acting like cops! I think I know why.
While I have no proof of this, it is my suspicion that the mayor of Berkeley, an alleged member of BAMN (“By Any Means Necessary”) and an “anti-fa” sympathizer, had arranged for the police to stand down as long as he was confident that his ideological ilk would run roughshod over his political opponents. In other words, the left knows and has known that the key to defeating the rest of us—the key to “fundamentally transforming” the culture, to borrow a term that Barack Obama infamously used—is to drive themselves into its collective consciousness.
To put it more exactly, leftists have known that through threats and exhibitions of violence, it can instill fear in the psyches of those who they want to either “transform” or otherwise silence. So, for example, if enough Trump supporters and/or conservative Americans see their compatriots having the snot beaten out of them, leftists think, then the Deplorables will grow demoralized.
Thus, it is good politics, with all of the psychological warfare that this entails, for the rest of the country to witness Berkeley in flames and folks with MAGA hats and American flags getting battered.
But what happens when those Deplorables fight back? What happens when those Deplorables not only fight back but turn the tables on their assailants? The video of the MAGA-hat and American flag sporting men, dressed as warriors, beating and running the anti-American left out of Berkeley, of all places, is terrible political theater from the militant left’s perspective.
Things being what they are, it is my guess that the mayor and his fellow ideologues decided that they didn’t want to risk another humiliating defeat. After all, they knew that the Deplorables had every intention of fighting back with all of the tenacity that they displayed the last time around—and maybe even more.
The Battle of Berkeley 4, though a cold confrontation, was another victory for patriots. The Deplorables entered the belly of the beast, said what they came to say, and left unscathed.
To repeat, this was another psychological win.
As most of us learned when we were but children, when bullies are made to swallow a dose of their own medicine, they are more likely to whistle a different tune.
Some of the punks in Berkeley may be learning the hard way. The terrorist left in general, on the other hand, is far from having learned its lesson. But they will, for as long as they insist upon attacking innocents, the ranks of right-wingers who are willing and able to fight back will continue to swell.
