#MiloRiots Continue: What Would Reagan Do? [VIDEO]

The violence is escalating. The “Milo Riots” seen at Berkeley on Wednesday night carried over into Thursday. A Trump supporter was attacked by two men at the edge of the campus.

In New York City, conservative actor Gavin McInnes got the Milo treatment by NYU students on Thursday night, when protesters stormed the venue in which he was addressing a group of College Republicans.

The NYPD was out in force, each armed with multiple zip ties, but McInnes was forced to end his speech early. He managed to fire some parting shots at a NYU spokesman, however: “You’re a dumb liberal asshole” and “You think these are rational beings?”

While this was happening, Milo Yiannopoulos was being interviewed by Tucker Carlson at Fox News, relating how as a Brit he had expected to find free speech in America. That certainly didn’t seem to be the case, did it?

Which leads me to ask the question: What Would Reagan Do?

As governor of California, Ronald Reagan had to handle student protesters at Berkeley in 1969. He didn’t exactly use kid gloves. Nor did he suffer media fools lightly.

I’m not advocating using buckshot on protesters — that actually made me wince. Nor am I enthusiastic about bringing in the National Guard. But when innocent peoples’ safety is threatened, and property is destroyed — including taxpayer-funded university property —  it may become necessary to use force to impose order.

In the end, though, we got through those bad old days of the 1960’s. We will get through another of the Left’s National Tantrums again.
