Sounds like the Left only likes free speech that it agrees with.¬†Violent protests shut down [2]¬†Milo Yiannopoulos’s event at University of California-Berkeley:

The university said fires were set, including one caused by a firebomb that ignited a generator-powered spotlight, and commercial-grade fireworks were thrown at police. NBC Bay Area showed a group of people grab a metal barricade and smash it against a door.

“The violence was instigated by a group of about 150 masked agitators who came onto campus and interrupted an otherwise non-violent protest,” UC Berkeley said in a statement. Some people were attacked and police treated six people for injuries, the university said.

Yiannopoulos said on Facebook that he was evacuated and blamed “violent left-wing protesters.”

The university said the event was called off at around 6 p.m. local time “amid violence, destruction of property and out of concern for public safety,” and estimated 1,500 people were outside the venue.
