I am sure she has many notches on her belt, what with being all brave and shit, exhorting others to do her dirty work.

Did the circus come to Berkeley?

Did the circus come to Berkeley?

I suspect it’s there all year round.

When will these 'allies' get it? If you're white, you're the enemy.

I wonder if Neckerchief Ally Guy, who’s just been told that basically he’s there to be cannon fodder and A Slave Of The Great Brown Leadership, is dimly realising what kind of shitshow he’s gotten himself into.

Perhaps that’s hoping for too much.

Jonathan

It would take a huge amount of time and effort, or perhaps a violent attack on him by one of his 'overlords', to reverse his years of indoctrination and cognitive dissonance.

I'm afraid that this and this show that no amount of violence will reset the crazed self-loathing of the white lefty.

So this woman is inciting violence against a specific class of people in public and it's not a hate crime?

It's only a hate crime if it's against a Protected Class du jour.

And that's whatever they say it is, although Persons of Pallor are pretty much guaranteed to not be, unless they are confused as to whether or not or if they are male and/or female. Milo pretty much proved being gay isn't Protection anymore, and that was about the only thing left that could save a Person of Pallor.

Wish I could feel sorry for him, but I checked and the give-a-damn tanks are dry.

Oh, I think sympathy for any of the participants would be a bit too much to ask.

Monty James

I can hardly bring myself to watch these things anymore; they rarely have a happy ending. And when I say happy ending, I mean the riot squad showing up swinging batons.

But this was funny. That guy's going to be Trump-curious in 2020.

Posturing leftist idiots, all.

I genuinely look forward to the day they "graduate" with a worse-than-useless "Studies" degree and six figures of student loan debt.

David

Thing is, such people rarely seem to learn from their mistakes, however self-indulgent and ruinous they may be, and instead succumb to the temptation - and the cultivated mental habit - of displacing responsibility. As we’ve seen, again and again, it’s more flattering to imagine that the reason your life - as a “change agent” and “thought leader” - isn’t quite as glamorous as you’d been led to expect is because of capitalism, or “white supremacy,” or “heteronormative patriarchy,” or some other convenient evasion.

Hal

One tactical note for clarity, while noting . . .

Did the circus come to Berkeley?

and

The location of the video is not Cal, aka The University Of California At Berkeley . . .

After about a half second I recognized that the video shows the intersection of Alston and Martin Luther King Jr--"Emmelkay"---, which is three blocks from the campus itself.

And, come to think of it, for a useful visual reference, note the visual size of that open park space off to the left or ahead of the camera view.

Now, when Shapiro recently visited Cal, there was at least one comment in a news report that amounted to The Left Wing Assessment of OMG!!! The barricades shut down half the campus!!!! Having Shapiro is wrong!!!! . . . when I just did a fast bit of passing Googlemancy to find that or those articles, I was amused to find instead references to Milo's original visit, the one with the bonfire and riots, with the references stating more or less The Right Wing Assessment of, OMG!!!! When Milo visited, the AntiFirstAmendment rioters burned down half the campus!!!! . . . which is even more egregiously idiotic given that the very little which occurred with buildings is that windows were broken, what picture after picture shows is a bonfire very much in the middle of a plaza and very clear of any buildings . . . .

---Oh, and of the building with the broken windows, the content of the building is pretty much the Student Store complex, run by an outside corporation, a cluster of snack shops and such, and meeting rooms of assorted sizes. All in all, relatively mere interior space comparable to the plaza exterior space.

Sooo, getting back to that view of the park, what one sees there is a little bit smaller footprint than the Sproul Plaza and Zellerbach area that the barricades would have surrounded, that same area that the AntiFirstAmendment rioters were rampaging about in. Now with that footprint in mind, see the actual size of Cal.---for the "ginormous riot" that resulted from Milo's initial visit, that would be at the intersection of Telegraph and Bancroft . . . . and pretty much, only that intersection . . . . out of the entire rest of the campus . . . .

Therefore, btw, reporting as a totally average native of Berkeley, born in a local hospital, hard core Conservative, as noted, Absolutely bloody Why Yes, that reality in size and lack of impact of the AnitiFirstAmendment idiots is why and how the average Berkeley reaction to left wing loonies---and right wing loonies---by an average Berkeley resident is pretty much Oh, look, there's a news chopper holding position over Thataway, so something's going on at This moment.

Fine, wasn't going thataway anyway at--again--This moment, so I'm going back to the errand run, reading the current book, having dinner, whatever . . . .

David

Not entirely unrelated.

Hal

Heh!!!

Three arrests after fistfights between right, left at UC Berkeley

Exactly as the headline notes, for all instances in the article of conservative, switch for the actually correct mere right wing, for all instances of liberal switch for the actually correct mere left wing . . . .

Neither of the groups are student groups, and students and faculty — busy with midterms — did not appear to get involved in the rally or protest.

. . .

UC police and law enforcement agencies monitored the event, advising the public to stay clear of the area as the crowd swelled to about 200.

The Cal population is about forty thousand.

David

And in happier news.

Lab Rat

And in happier news.

'Bout danged time!

Or to paraphrase Insty: "More, please!"

Matt G

Ah, somewhat reminiscent of that wonderfully entertaining footage of a feminist and transgendered person duking it out at some protest/jamboree in London a few weeks back.

Regardless, 'red on red' clashes are very much spectator sport in the purest sense.....

David

For bizarre convolution, this one here is still a benchmark for all other leftwing shrieking videos.

jones

So, if it's in the "blood/DNA and inherent" then how is one supposed to "negotiate" with an enemy who ONLY thinks this and ONLY wants you to die?

I don't think Sun Tzu would advocate that as a sound approach or mindset to place in an adversary. I haven't read all his dicta mind.

And then there’s this:

Y’all are not human. Y’all are not real.

We drain her energy.

Watcher

The woman in the video has the mindset of an officer one hundred years ago, "We must take the trenches opposite regardless of the cost. I know the promised pre-attack bombardment didn't come through, but we must endeavour to push forward and not stop for any reason whatsoever, including wire, artillery or machine-gun fire. Once you reach the German trenches you will raise your flags signalling its capture so that I can see it from this post and I will then report its capture to headquarters. Don't forget, you must remain in your assigned attack wave rows so our attack is orderly and unstoppable; success is only possible if we all do our part."

Hal

Yes. Clearly, Field Marshal Haig is about to make yet another gargantuan effort to move his drinks cabinet six inches closer to Berlin.

Clam

Someone should send that video to her employer.

David

Someone should send that video to her employer.

It’s worth bearing in mind that hers is the kind of attitude that’s being indulged and encouraged on many ‘progressive’ campuses. As, for instance, when black student ‘activists’ complain, emphatically, that even brief proximity to students of other ethnicities – say, by sharing an entrance lobby – will “erase” and “marginalise” their “black and brown bodies.”

David

We live in strange times.

Speaking of people suffering from too much whiteness...

I am not sure what avatars have to do with emojis, or this gal's lack of mirrors, but I am sure this will solve all the problems of the world.

David

Why, it’s almost as if she were avoiding an obvious solution.

David

Oh, she has more to share with us:

What we have to do is just… kill them discreetly… some kind of vaccine that’s going to kill white DNA… in three to six months.

This, then, is the endpoint of the cultivated grievance that’s so in fashion. Note that, despite the lengthy, quite detailed genocidal fantasies, the woman doesn’t mention any example of ill-treatment by the white people who so offend her sensibilities. The fact that they merely exist is enough to wish them all dead.

R. Sherman

I suppose we should be grateful that she's courageous/stupid enough to be so open about her desires and willing avail herself of social media to broadcast them to all and sundry. The fact that she remains unmolested despite her murderous rage directed against the majority of the country--a fact which seemingly contradicts her thesis of genetic "evil"--doesn't seem register.

Jonathan

...some kind of vaccine that’s going to kill white DNA...

I'm sure Africa's top scientists are working on it right now.

Joan

But I've been told black people can't be racist.

It’s the face of dumb malice. And I suspect she’s stuck with it. I suppose the question is whether the young lady is so sour and disaffected, to the extent of delighting in genocidal fantasies, because of a lifetime of horrific and inexcusable oppression – of which no evidence is apparent or forthcoming - or just because she’s been told that’s how she should feel, being black, regardless of reality.

[ Edited. ]

Sporkatus
because of a lifetime of horrific and inexcusable oppression... or just because she’s been told

In much the same manner as Sayre's Law ("Academic politics is the most vicious and bitter form of politics, because the stakes are so low."), I suspect that the psychotic attachment to resentments of the cause is so severe because the sacrifices and oppression have been so meager to nonexistent.

See also Kaepernick, C: noted personal sufferer of exactly zero Racist Oppression, ever.

From Wikipedia:

"The Tocqueville Effect is the phenomenon that, as social conditions and opportunities improve, social frustration grows more quickly. The effect is based on Alexis de Tocqueville's observations on the French Revolution and later reforms in Europe and the United States. Another way to describe the effect is the aphorism 'the appetite grows by what it feeds on'. For instance, after greater social justice is achieved, there may be more fervent opposition to even smaller social injustices than before."

"The effect suggests a link between social equality or concessions by the regime and unintended consequences. According to the Tocqueville effect, a revolution is likely to occur after an improvement in social conditions in contrast to Marx's theory of progressive immiseration of the proletariat (deterioration of conditions)."

Jeff Guinn
Shortly after his arrest, Feller told authorities that he doesn’t talk to his family, which includes his grandmother in Longview and his parents in Colorado. He said he’d been homeless for the past year, been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and smoked marijuana daily.

This, right here, is my completely unsurprised face.

Sporkatus

Such a startlement that relief of misery would leave some unsatisfied, with the relief being less Messianic than they'd hoped - and quite surprising that people with more time on their hands would put it to less than savory use some of the time. Shocked, I am.

@PiperPaul

See, e.g. the concept of "micro-aggressions," which, when eliminated, will lead to the discovery of "nano-aggressions."

Hopp Singg

One day, when she is being tried and testifies in her own defence, she will say she was just a weak and impressionable young woman, led astray by an evil man.

Fortunately, that only works for the pretty ones.

champ

Lives in majority white country.

Maybe she should move to Africa...

Trevor

As much as I'd like to see that, she is more likely to be appointed to the Ninth Circuit than face any sanction.

neal

You know, the Romans used to invite the overly theatrical to the games.
Perhaps cowering in a huddle in the middle of a rugby field or such would be more civilised than chariots and steel.

Perhaps the rodeo clown circuit. Comedy is not pretty.

Jonathan

Couldn't play the victim card there.

Hal

. . . . The circumstances would be quite interesting, given the reports that from an African point of view, she is the unmistakably, very obviously white person: "They don't see white men that often."

If she's descended from African slaves freed after the American Civil War, there's a good chance she has "White DNA" in her genetic code.

It would be interesting to see DNA testing done for various racialists running around. Amusing if they found out they had "dirty" DNA in them.

It would simply magnify the self-loathing.

Actually, it turns out that white Americans are 98.6% white European, whereas black Americans are only 73.2% black African. So white America is very white and black America isn't very black.
