Berkeley (and free speech) survive Hurricane Ben

Published

on

With all of the preparations and disaster-readiness actions that took place before DailyWire’s Ben Shapiro appeared at UC Berkeley to speak, one could easily confuse it the situation with an upcoming natural disaster or act of war. They did what they could to prevent him from coming. When that wasn’t going to happen, they decided to organize boycotts, protests, and counseling sessions to keep their liberally indoctrinated student body from suffering massive derangement syndromes for too long.

They couldn’t stop him. They could only hope to contain him.

When the speech was over and the dust settled, miraculously there were no casualties. Even free speech was preserved. Not only did Shapiro get to speak without many challenges, but protesters were able to voice their concerns with minimal violence and only a few weapons-based arrests. No snowflakes were harmed in the presentation of this conservative.

A massive sign was hung near the building where Shapiro was speaking on campus reading, ”we say no to your white supremacist bulls**t.”
