AFTER HE MADE CRITICAL REMARKS ABOUT THE CONSERVATIVE SPEAKER WHO SPARKED VIOLENT PROTESTS AT CAL. KEN BASTIDA IS HERE WITH THE STORY. KEN? VERONICA — AFTER LAST WEEK’S CLASHES AT U-C BERKELEY… MAYOR “JESSE ARREGUIN” RECEIVED SO MANY THREATS… POLICE GAVE HIM HIS OWN SECURITY DETAIL. A WEEK AGO… PROTESTORS STORMED THE U-C BERKELEY STUDENT UNION AHEAD OF A PLANNED APPEARANCE FROM BREITBART COLUMNIST MILO YIANNOPOULOS. THEY SET FIRES… AND RAMMED BUILDINGS USING SECURITY GATES… CAUSING 100- THOUSAND DOLLARS IN DAMAGE ON CAMPUS. YIANNOPOULOS’ SPEECH THAT NIGHT WAS CANCELED. AFTER THE INCIDENT… THE MAYOR PUT OUT A STATEMENT, SAYING BERKELEY WOULD NOT TOLERATE HATE SPEECH… AND CALLED HIM A WHITE NATIONALIST. HE LATER APOLOGIZED ON TWITTER… WRITING, QUOTE: “I CONSIDER MUCH OF WHAT MR. YIANNOPOULOS SAYS TO BE HATEFUL. BUT I REGRET AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE WHITE NATIONAL LABEL.” BUT THAT WASN’T ENOUGH FOR SOME PEOPLE… SOME CONSERVATIVES WERE SO ANGRY… THEY SENT HIM A BARRAGE OF PHONE CALLS, TWEETS AND FACEBOOK MESSAGES. AT ONE POINT, THE MAYOR’S HOME ADDRESS WAS EVEN GOING AROUND ON THE INTERNET. BERKELEY POLICE DECIDED HE NEEDED PROTECTION. TODAY THE MAYOR ISSUED THIS STATEMENT, QUOTE: “I KNEW BY GOING INTO PUBLIC SERVICE AND TAKING STRONG, PRINCIPLED STANCES THAT I MIGHT BE A TARGET. BUT YOU DON’T KNOW UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO YOU HOW DISTURBING IT IS, AND HOW MUCH YOU ARE AT RISK.” THE MAYOR WENT ON TO THANK THE POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR LOOKING INTO THE THREATS… AND SAYS HE WILL NOT STOP STANDING UP FOR THE VALUES OF HIS COMMUNITY. ON CAPITOL HILL.

  1. It only took them 20 seconds to spin the story blaming Milo for the riot, he hadn't even spoken yet and if these "college students" can't handle the other side of the argument they probably should drop out.

  2. Mayor gets police detail to protect him after inciting a riot….police stand and watch as milo fans get beaten and women pepper sprayed.

  3. Someone needs to do us all a favor and follow through with these so called veiled threats because it would do us all good to see the Liberal trash being taken out. Where is all the reports of violence against those that these so called protesters (rioters) are trying to silence.

  4. NOTHING JUSTIFIES THE SOCIALIST-STYLE ILLEGAL, VIOLENT BLOCKING OF FREE SPEECH.
    THE CHILDISH, IDIOTIC ALLEGATION OF "HATE SPEECH" IS STUPID AND ABSURD !
    LEFTIST ARROGANT CRYBABY LIBTARDS FEEL ENTITLED TO BLOCK FREE SPEECH FROM ANYONE THAT DONT AGREE WITH THEM ! TOTALITARIAN AND RIDICULOUS !

  5. He allows and supports terrorists to limit free speech. But he's the victim, NOT.

    He shouldn't be getting threats, but he should have had the police put a stop to the rioting.

  6. yes now u know how milo feels when he gets death threats from folks like u calling him hateful,sexist,bigoted and white supremacist.

  7. This is leftists upset people get arrested.

    The mayor doesn't care if his political opponents get assaulted.

  8. Berkly Mayor is incompetent and orders the police to not do there jobs putting the very people he's supposed to take care of in danger.
