Berzerkeley Brawl

Last Saturday, a violent brawl broke out in Berkeley, California for the third time this year. The “Anti-Fa” attempted to break up a pro-free speech rally organized by Bay Area activist Rich Black. Previously, Anti-Fa succeeded in shutting down a scheduled speech by Milo Yiannopoulos, and in disrupting a free speech rally held to support Milo's right to free speech.

This time, things didn't work out so well for the Anti-Fa. The Anti-Fa were outnumbered and outmuscled by a motley collection of pro-free speech liberals, mainstream conservatives, “Oath Keepers,” bikers, alt-lite conspiracy theorists, and hardcore alt-right white nationalists.


Things went especially bad for one particular Anti-Fa. Standing 5'1” and weighing 98 pounds, Louise Rosealma decided to join her fellow Anti-Fa on the front lines of the melee. Things went about as well as you would expect. She received a concussion after being punched in the face by Nathan Damigo, an ex-con and prominent white nationalist.

You can call me old-fashioned, or you can call me a mangina, but I don't relish watching 98-lb. girls getting slugged in the face. Still, the Anti-Fa showed up looking for a fight; they had every intent to use violence to disrupt the march. Louise Rosealma chose to follow the men into a street brawl; turns out that was a dumb choice.

To understand what drew this diverse group together, you need to understand the political climate in Northern California. Jonah Goldberg compared being a conservative in Manhattan to being a Christian in pagan Rome; northern California isn't that different from Manhattan. While we haven't reached the point where conservatives are being mauled by wild beasts in front of cheering crowds at Giants Stadium, Northern California is not a hospitable place for conservatives.

Brendan Eich was fired for holding the same opinion on gay marriage as president Obama and a majority of California voters. In order to comply with California's ever-expanding “assault weapons” ban, gun makers created such bizarre devices as featureless rifles and bullet buttons. California gun owners must now undergo a background check every time they want to purchase ammunition.

When my uncle attended a pro-life rally in the Sacramento area, passing motorists rolled down their windows to hurl insults and occasionally blunt objects. Following the passage of Proposition Eight, supporters of gay marriage attacked Mormon churches to punish them for supporting the proposition.

It should also be pointed out that the hyperprogressive municipalities Oakland and Berkeley have a history of tolerating and condoning violent and lawless behavior by left-wing thugs. After Johanese Meserle was convicted of manslaughter for shooting Oscar Grant, rioters trashed downtown Oakland. Of the one hundred and twenty people arrested, prosecutors charged two.

Conservatives in California, particularly in places like Berkeley, feel like they are under siege. They face ostracism and even physical violence for their beliefs. Worse, conservatives face elected officials who are openly hostile to conservativism, and indulgent of far-left political violence. Given this situation, when fringe extremists offer to defend conservatives from violent left-wing thugs, they're reluctant to turn down the help.

For both moral and political reasons, mainstream conservatives should oppose the infiltration of conservatism by extremist groups; frankly, some people both deserve and demand a moral quarantine. Unfortunately, that case gets harder and harder to make, when the left refuses to control their sides’ nuts.

It's a hostile environment for sure.  Lefites have become unhinged here.  I see with long term friendships ending.  Social Media hostility of course.  It's entirely knee herk now.  You with us or against us attitutudes.  Attack, attack, attack mentality.  The aggression is over the top.  Clearly these people are mental.  We see plenty of it here. 

There is simply no middle ground anymore.  Those of us who lean Libertarian used to be able to navigate both worlds such as we do in our marriages to center left types.  The center left is being radicalized.  It's not going to end well I fear.

Just from SF to LA and only along the coast.  The inland counties, inland empire, along with Orange and San Diego are ok.

San Diego is changing but San Fran Freako is clearly radicalized as has been for some time.

Things worked out just fine. The leftists came looking for a beat down and got what they were looking for.

Very satisfying. Anti-fa is actually pro-fascist.

.Then the left created fake news blaming conservatives for LW violence simply because they were there in progressive majority areas as if the lefties couldn't tolerate a diversity of opinion expressed around them.

If she enters a brawl to fight like a man, then she should expect to get hit like one.

If you join a premeditated violent riot, you should expect to get hurt. Too bad.

I saw a storyline where she was dropping M-80s into the glass jars she was throwing-which would cause fragmentation damage.  Can't be positive that it is true, but that's allegedly why the guy took her out.

When it comes to a man hitting a woman, only a coward and a pussy does so. No matter what the reason. So said my late father and I still believe he was right.

Besides, both sides were equally as guilty for the fight. Both sides. Equally.

If a woman wants to be treated like a woman, then she should act like one. If she doesnt what to get hit, then she should keep her stupid ass out of the fight.

There is no excuse for hitting a woman. None. Ever. No matter. what. No gentleman will do so. No real man will do so. Only a wife beater or woman abuser will do so or accept it as acceptable behavior. No matter what a woman does. Ever. Even if it means the man losing his life. Any man who hits a woman is a coward and a pussy. Always! It is always inexcusable. Always. There is no acceptable explanation for it and no forgiveness for it. If you find one excuse to do it then you will find other excuses and then you will become a woman beater. Always! Period.

My father was a real man. I am sorry for you if yours was not.

It's time to take the pro Trump message to the inner core of every large city and teach the others there the meaning of the 1st amendment rights to free soeech, to petition government, even those urban city halls,and peaceably assemble.  We have that right and progressives need to respect it or face the consequences, even if it means they get arrested for disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, assault and battery, resisting arrest or whatever.  If they don't like a rally or what's being said, they can create their own rally and have their say there.  No one has a free speech right to shout down others speech or to prevent others free speech from being heard.
