Early Morning Reads

A trio of good reads, none of which have to do with Brett Kavanaugh:

– Recent graduate Naweed Tahmas writes about life on the Berekeley campus as a conservative.

I have been harassed, stalked, chased, punched, and spat on during my time at UC Berkeley, and in early 2017, I was chased by a mob of masked, black-clad thugs. These thugs, members of a fringe political faction, threw bricks at police officers, launched Molotov cocktails, set fires, beat innocent bystanders, and cut a wide swath of destruction through the downtown area of an entire city.

This was not an outbreak of sectarian violence in a developing nation. This occurred here in the United States, on the campus of UC Berkeley, once home of the Free Speech Movement. The thugs who chased me were far-left anarchists styling themselves as “Antifa” (short for “anti-fascist”). They were responding to a planned talk by Milo Yiannopoulos, which administrators administrators canceled for the safety of the speaker and the attendees. Police made only one arrest that night.

-Dan McLaughlin with a fascinating look back on the 100th anniversary of the bloodiest battle (for Americans) of World War I.

– A brutal but fair analysis of Dinesh D’Souza.
