They don’t want to disavow their Black Bloc allies, but they certainly don’t want to admit to being allied with them.
“I was there for part of last night, and I know what I saw and those people were not Berkeley students,” Reich said. “Those people were outside agitators. I have never seen them before.”
“There’s rumors that they actually were right-wingers. They were a part of a kind of group that was organized and ready to create the kind of tumult and danger you saw that forced the police to cancel the event,” Reich insisted. “So Donald Trump, when he says Berkeley doesn’t respect free speech rights, that’s a complete distortion of the truth.”
“You think it’s a strategy by [Milo Yiannopoulos] or right-wingers?” asked host Don Lemon.
“I wouldn’t bet against it,” Reich said. “I saw these people. They all looked very– almost paramilitary. They were not from the campus. I don’t want to say factually, but I’ve heard there was some relationship here between these people and the right-wing movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.”
Meanwhile, back in the non-delusional world, the alleged agitators are being unmasked for who we already knew they were: paid Left-wing agitators and university employees, such as this gentleman who works for UC-Berkeley since 2008. The indefatigable Chuck Johnson has already set up a mechanism for identifying Black Bloc. It’s focused on those arrested at the Inauguration riots, but it can, and will, be easily expanded.
While it doesn’t work to argue that Dems are the real racists, it’s going to be very easy to prove, conclusively, that SJWs and Black Bloc are the real violent fascists.
