This article was submitted to me by a young writer who is still building an audience, she’s the author of the very successful “Dear Hillary” article, and her writing continues to improve with each new piece. Enjoy! -The Mid Merican

The Tolerant Left Strikes Again. It would seem the state of California is not too fond of Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative provocateur who has a lot on his mind about SJW’s and is not afraid to be politically incorrect.
Unpopular among social media companies such as Twitter, who banned him indefinitely from the site in 2016, Milo is an activist for free speech. He isn’t scared to say what needs to be said, fact or opinion, even if it hurt someone’s feelings.
Newsflash: Facts don’t care about your feelings.
There have been many disruptions in Milo’s speeches across the country. Leftist SJW’s who feel his “hate speech” shouldn’t be allowed on their campus because they have a right to a safe space.
These people who are acting so intolerant of Milo are the same people who protest in the streets screaming of “racial intolerance” of the right.
I believe the difference between protesting and rioting has been lost in the midst of this “higher education.”
Let’s break it down. You have the right as citizens to peacefully assemble. The first amendment guarantees you this right. Key word here is peacefully.
Protest: to express an objection to what someone has done or said.
Riot: a violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd.
What has happened countless times in the recent years due to “controversial” events is not what the constitution says we have the right to. You do not have the right to charge angrily into the street and loot stores because your homie got shot by the police. You do not have the right to set fire to businesses that are not yours out of anger with the government. You do not have the right to set fires to a campus just because you do not like what a speaker has to say.
The infamous “Triggly-Puff” was one of the most renowned protestors of a Milo event. With her flappy arms flying in the breeze she chanted, “Keep your hate speech off this campus!”
Here’s a thought: If you don’t like what Milo has to say, don’t go to his event. If you don’t go you can’t get offended by what he says because guess what you won’t hear it.
If only the snowflakes could think this far. Instead they follow suit of what their Democratic leaders in office currently do: throw a temper tantrum when they don’t get their way.
Free speech encompasses all speech. Matter of fact free speech protects “hate speech” the most. It was put into the Constitution so that we as American citizens could have the freedom to criticize things in our government and our world that we disagree with.
Listening to how tolerant and accepting the left is of those who are different is getting pretty old when all they do is attack anyone who thinks different than them.
Milo is a homosexual Jewish conservative. It doesn’t get much different than that.
And for you to sit back and hate on him for his ideas, is just as discriminatory for someone else to sit back and hate on you for yours.
What happened at UC Berkeley is just an example of how the “tolerance” is wearing thin and it is a disgrace to everything this country stands for. This is not what democracy looks like. This is what spoiled entitled children look like.
“All of it began the first time some of you who know better, and are old enough to know better, let young people think that they have the right to choose the laws they would obey as long as they were doing it in the name of social protest” -Ronald Reagan
The left loves to talk the talk about ignorant right sided minds letting history repeat itself. Looks like they’re going down the same road as the “protesters” in 1969. Some things just never change I suppose.
