Milo Yiannopoulos was on the Tucker Carlson show last night to talk about the riots that broke out at Berkeley on Wednesday night. He blamed the media in part for creating this climate of hate.
He’s right because if you look at the way the media is spinning the events, many outlets are excusing the rioters or blaming the right for the actions of the left.

‘This Is Political Violence’: Milo Yiannopoulos Talks to Tucker About Berkeley Riots
Yiannopoulos, a Breitbart News editor, said he was preparing for his speech on the campus Wednesday night when the ground floor of the building was stormed by protesters, violence broke out, and he was evacuated by his security detail.
“That is the price you pay for being a libertarian or a conservative on American college campuses,” Yiannopoulos said.
He argued that the mainstream media helped create this environment on college campuses by labeling ordinary conservatives “white supremacists,” “anti-Semites,” “racists” and “sexists” when they’re not.
“There’s an inevitable, obvious consequence to this,” Yiannopoulos said. “The media has created this environment in which it’s OK to say almost anything about somebody who is right of Jane Fonda.”
He said that people should have to answer for this “political violence,” because it’s only going to get worse.
“The establishment – the media, academic and entertainment establishment – has made certain sorts of political opinion – respectable, reasonable, mainstream opinion – impossible to express in public.”
