Trump Claims Rioters Prove To Voters That They Made The Right Choice

Disturbing images and videos have been making the rounds of the carnage that went down at the University of California at Berkeley on Wednesday night, and it certainly hasn’t painted the university in a flattering light. A conservative commentator was scheduled to give a talk at the college, but the protesters weren’t haven’t it. The situation devolved into a riotous atmosphere that was replete with destruction and things being set on fire.

As Newsmax reports, the jarring scene did not escape the attention of president Donald Trump, and he took to his favorite medium to offer up his take.

“Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!,” he wrote on social media.

University officials are pinning the destructive behavior on destructive forces, but that fails to answer the question of why they weren’t better equipped to handle the protesters actions.

"I do not believe our students were involved in the vandalism and the violent behavior that occurred. This was a group of agitators who were masked up, throwing rocks, commercial-grade fireworks and Molotov cocktails at officers. Those were not our students. That's not our students' behavior," according to Margo Bennet, the school police chief

While it’s crystal clear that the protesters were not big fans of the message that they anticipated hearing from the scheduled speaker, they took an unconscionable series of actions to get their point across. Protesting is all well and good when it comes to standing up for something you believe in, but resorting to destruction and squelching free speech in the process is an abomination.

The majority of protesters in scenes such as the one at Berkely claim that they are standing up against some omnipotent and oppressive force, yet they are engaging in behavior that is reminiscent of the exact oppression they claim exists in the first place. That line of thinking will get them absolutely nowhere, whether it’s in the political arena or in the game of life.
