(FoxNews.com) Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos said Wednesday that the riot that canceled his planned speech at the University of California-Berkeley was “heavily ironic and very, I think, self-defeating for the social justice left.”
Yiannopoulos’ planned talk was scrapped after violent protesters hurled smoke bombs, broke windows and started a bonfire outside the student union where he was to appear.
“No one’s safety is at risk from different opinions,” Yiannopoulos told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in a phone interivew. “No one’s physical safety is endangered by political ideas from a speaker on campus, but universities have sort of allowed this stuff to happen, and even in some cases encouraged it.”
The Berkeley appearance was to be the 32-year-old’s last stop on a nationwide college tour that has sparked protests and occasional violence. Yiannopoulos told Carlson that he believes the protesters view him as a proxy for President Donald Trump, whom he vocally supports.
