Interesting article! The protests I’ve been to have been very peaceful, but even so they’ve been reported as somewhat less. I’ve seen Fox News totally depart from reality in a few cases. I’ve also heard tell of people being hired by the right to disrupt protests on the left and make us look bad. It’s hard to say what’s real anymore.
As for Berkeley, I heard it wasn’t students being violent and in any case the university didn’t condone it. It all just sounds like a good excuse for Trump to slam education again.
