Newsweek gets schooled by Ace of Spades

Newsweek Enthuses Over Political Violence, Saying "Protesters" "Schooled" Milo Yiannopolous

Milo Yiannopoulos gets schooled at Berkeley: Ferocious protests greeted the right-wing provocateur last night
7:13 AM - 2 Feb 2017

I and many others piled on Newsweek for this glorification of political violence -- but Newsweek didn't change or delete the tweet. So I guess after a night's reflection, they're happy to say that rioters, arsonists, and thugs "schooled" someone.

Gee, I wonder if Newsweek will have the same level of enthusiasm for political violence should someone come round to "school" them at their offices.

Do they think punches and bricks only fly in one direction? Are they that cocooned in baby-swaddling in their Safe Space to think violence is just a one-way Happy Fun Street?

Oh, and Gavin McInnes had his own speech violently disrupted, and he himself was pepper-sprayed in the face by a "protester."
