Universities in America are Biased Against Republicans


Dylan Maynard, Reporter

A University in California, Berkeley, has cancelled a speech by rightwing Milo Yiannopoulos after thousands of students gathered in protest and a group of black-clad anti-fascist activists shot fireworks at the speech venue. The Martin Luther King Jr student union was heavily fortified behind several layers of police barricades when protesters began gathering outside at 5pm on Wednesday, three hours before the event was scheduled to start. The gathering was boisterous but peaceful until about 6pm, when several dozen protesters wearing black face masks and carrying glittering flags arrived. The group quickly attacked the police barricades, then began shooting firecrackers at the building. Some used barricades to smash windows. After about 15 minutes, a police officer announced that the event was cancelled. Some cheered when the police announced the cancellation, but others continued to jeer and call for the police to send Milo out to face the crowd. “Milo isn’t here,” one police officer shouted.
