Universities have set stage for violence to continue

Violent gangs of left-wing radicals known as “antifa” have been attacking Christians or conservatives whom they consider “racist” or “fascist.”

But, now, some conservatives are organizing in self-defense, and the war is erupting in the streets.

The focal point is Berkeley, California, home of the free speech movement and now the site of repeated battles between antifa and conservatives. A lawsuit was filed against the University of Berkeley to force the school to allow author and conservative columnist Ann Coulter to speak.

It came only weeks after the “Battle of Berkeley” in which a “free speech rally” featuring Lauren Southern, Brittany Pettibone and other conservative and libertarian speakers was disrupted by antifa. However, conservatives wearing helmets and protective gear routed the left-wingers in a street battle, prompting organizers to declare victory.

ut it seems likely antifa will not accept defeat, as anarchists are now discussing in online forums the need for combat training and the acquisition of firearms.

One of the more prominent organizations inspiring them is the John Brown Gun Club, a left-wing group that staged an armed counter-protest of a pro-Trump rally in Arizona in March.

Meanwhile, conservatives are also organizing. One of the most prominent right-wing street fighters is Kyle Chapman, known on the Internet as “Based Stick Man,” after video of him hitting an antifa over the head with a stick at a March 4 pro-Trump rally went viral.

In the aftermath of the latest “Battle of Berkeley,” Chapman announced he was joining forces with conservative commentator Gavin McGinnes’s “Western chauvinist” fraternal organization, the “Proud Boys.” The group was heavily involved in protecting speakers at the “free speech rally” and has sworn to guard Coulter during her upcoming appearance at Berkeley.

The battles between left and right first heated up after libertarian activist Milo Yiannopoulos had his February speech at the University of Berkeley shut down because of violent protests by antifa. Though Yiannopoulos was later disgraced by the airing of a video in which the openly homosexual activist discussed pederasty, the episode infuriated conservatives and libertarians and its importance for free speech surpassed any connection with Yiannopoulos himself.

Scott Greer, author of “No Campus For White Men,” says there has been a real shift in the mentality of many on the American right since then.

“I think the Berkeley riots in February spurred the right to commit to self-defense against black-masked thugs,” he told WND. “Fighting against antifa is not an act of aggression, but one of self-defense in the eyes of most conservatives.”
