Via Reason‘s Robby Soave, there’s video of a Social Justice Warrior protest at UC-Berkeley last week. Writes Soave:

Student protesters at the University of California-Berkeley gathered in front of a bridge on campus and forcibly prevented white people from crossing it. Students of color were allowed to pass.

The massive human wall was conceived as a pro-safe space demonstration. Activists wanted the university administration to designate additional safe spaces for trans students, gay students, and students of color. They were apparently incensed that one of their official safe spaces had been moved from the fifth floor of a building to the basement.

The video is shocking. These progressives are flat-out racists — and cops stood by and allowed them to get away with it. If this were Ole Miss in 1965, and a wall of white students refused to let black students get to class, and the campus police refused to intervene, we would know exactly what that was all about. But this kind of thing keeps happening on campus, and … crickets.

The University of California — Berkeley is a safe space for racists, provided the racists hate white people. SJWs and the gutless liberals who coddle them: you all are seeding a vicious backlash, and you will deserve it.
