The president of the Berkeley College Republicans has issued an open challenge to any member of Berkeley Antifa to debate them, with “any communist of socialist” moderator that they desire.
Troy Worden, president of the Berkeley CR chapter issued the challenge during a speech on Sunday.
“I would like to conclude my speech with a challenge, not to any of you, but to Berkeley Antifa,” Worden said. “I challenge you, Antifa, to participate in a debate with the Berkeley College Republicans. We can make it a safe space for you. We can have a neutral moderator — you can choose a communist or socialist professor of your choice to moderate the debate. Instead of attacking us, instead of terrorizing people like me, let’s sit down and have a discussion.”
Worden added, “I’m looking at you Berkeley Antifa, speak with us or don’t — it’s your choice. This is a free country.”
The University of California at Berkeley has been at the center of the battle for free speech on college campuses, as violent leftist have repeatedly prevented right-wing speakers from being able to share their ideas.
UC Berkeley was once known for the Free Speech Movement born on its campus in 1964, when students rallied together to demand that the administration lift a long held ban on-campus political activities.
In February, militant leftists violently shut down a Yiannopoulos speaking event at the university by throwing a firebomb, physically assaulting event attendees, looting a Starbucks, and vandalizing the area. It was estimated that the rioters caused over $500,000 in damage to the surrounding area.
On March 4, free speech activists held an event in the area called the “March 4 Trump.” Multiple people were injured as members of Antifa violently attacked those in attendance, including an elderly man who was pepper sprayed, and vandalized surrounding businesses.
In April, chaos erupted in the city as anarchists dressed in black bloc attire aimed to shut down a pro-free speech rally dubbed “Patriot’s Day.” The militant leftists threw bottles, M80s, and other instruments of riots into the crowd primarily consisting of Trump supporters.
Since then, there have been multiple clashes between the right, and those who care about free speech — and the left, who have been employing black bloc tactics. The threats of violence continued to be so great that an Ann Coulter speech on campus had to be cancelled.
Black bloc is a common tactic used by anarchists to make it more difficult to identify violent protesters and rioters for prosecution or civil claims. The goal is to make one person nearly indistinguishable from the next so that they can disappear in the crowd. The tactic has been used throughout the world for decades, but its first documented use in the US was at a protest against the support of “right-wing death squads” in El Salvador outside the Pentagon in 1988.

COULTER: Detained Illegals Are “Being Separated From Coyotes and Drug Mules”
Author and pundit Ann Coulter was confronted by a TMZ cameraman today, and the result was not pretty for the paparazzo.
“The biggest thing is these kids are being separated from their parents,” said the cameraman posing a lefty journalist
Coulter responded in her usual ruthless manner.
“They’re being separated from coyotes and drug mules, that has already been proven before” she said.
Coulter continued to savage her adversary.
“The parents can stay in Mexico,” she said. “You don’t get to get out of committing crimes in this country because you have a baby. I mean, why don’t we let out Bernie Madoff. His kids suffered. One committed suicide.”
The activist then brought up the First Ladies who have denounced President Donald J. Trump’s zero tolerance policy.
“Thank God First Ladies aren’t elected officials,” Coulter replied with a grin.
When asked if she thought this would be a “stain on our country’s history,” Coulter delivered her knockout blow.
“It’s going to be the END of our country’s history if we let these hordes in,” she said. “It will never, never stop.”
WaPo Employees Beg Bezos for Raise
More than 400 employees at the Washington Post have signed an open letter to owner Jeff Bezos demanding better working conditions after more than a year of failed negotiations with upper management.
“[Dear Jeff Bezos] we workers of The Washington Post have been bargaining for a year and have little to show for it because The Post won’t meet us halfway on much of anything,” says a tweet shared by the Post Guild. “We love The Post. We know you do too. Our work has earned us more than what The Post is offering.”

Bezos is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon. His estimated net worth is nearly $142 billion. He bought the paper in 2013.
The left-wing culture that has engulfed the Washington Post has spilled over into the office, and come back to bite Bezos. His employees are calling on him to “share the wealth” that they claim to have created.
“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the petition says.
The staff accompanied the petition with a video.
“I’m fighting for equal pay, because regardless of gender or skin color, we all deserve to be paid the same,” said a compilation of employees in the video.
The sword of social justice appears to be turning inward on the Washington Post.
See How This Trump Supporter Trolled De Niro At His Own Play
A little more than a week after his vulgar anti-Trump rant at the Tony Awards, actor Robert de Niro was repaid in kind at the curtain call of his version of “A Bronx Tale,” the Broadway show.
In the style coined by independent reporter Laura Loomer, a man stood up at the end of the show, rushing the stage with a “Keep America Great” flag. De Niro is the director of the show.
“The times we live in,” wrote Joe Del Vicario, who was at the show. “At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”

But politicizing shows is nothing new for the left. In November 2016, a cast member of Broadway Musical “Hamilton” lectured Vice President Mike Pence after the show. Pence was booed while exiting the theatre.
“We, sir, we are the diverse American who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.” said a cringeworthy Brandon Victor Dixon on stage.
After the show, Dixon continued injecting his politics into Broadway.
“We really thought this was an important moment to really say something,” he said. “To get in front of an individual with whom we feel we have differences and to make sure that he hears and he sees us.”
According to the new rules set by the left, yesterday’s “A Bronx Tale” protest is simply par for the course. The protestor, after all, was just getting in front of someone with whom he disagrees, right?
No surprise that the left does not want to play by the rules it has created.
