The left sure does like to play both sides of the First Amendment argument, and this week brought us yet another example of their egregious animosity.
As conservative personality Charlie Kirk was set to speak on the campus of UC Davis, protesters turned to agitators, again demonstrating just how violent progressives can be.
Hundreds of protesters converged on the UC Davis campus Tuesday night as a highly-charged speaking event brought out conservatives, liberals and what appeared to be Antifa activists.
The field outside the University Credit Union Center was cluttered with people protesting ahead of the event, including what appeared to be members of Antifa.
The crowd was face-to-face with a heavy law enforcement presence as event-goers snuck their way in.
“They did a barrier where you couldn’t walk past them. They were being physical, too,” attendee Levi Delello said.
Attendees were certainly concerned about their right to free speech.
“There’s a lot of lies being spewed out there that it’s a White supremacy convention over here, supposedly, but I’m Mexican, bro,” an attendee named Jose said.
Some eventgoers said they were upset over the university’s message.
“Colleges used to be the bastion of free speech,” one eventgoer who wanted to remain anonymous said. “You used to be able to have a debate, to have two sides.”
While some in the media downplayed the violence, the evidence speaks to the truth.
One of the people arrested is charged with misdemeanor vandalism and resisting arrest. The other person was charged with vandalism, resisting arrest and threats to a police officer.
UC Davis officials said an officer was hurt during the event when he was jumped on from behind and pushed to the ground. Protesters at the event also broke 10 glass panels in the doors but were not able to gain access to the building.
Once again, the Democrats have proven that the only free speech they care about is their own.
