Milo Yiannopoulos Protest at UC Berkeley, THOUSANDS Protest Breitbart Editor’s Speech FNN

Posted by

(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.
