(Infowars) Prominent left-wing journalists and celebrities responded to the violent riot and beatings of Trump supporters outside a Milo Yiannopoulos event at UC Berkeley by encouraging, defending or justifying the attacks.
Trump supporters were beaten with flag poles, punched and stomped during the chaos, with another woman being pepper sprayed during a TV interview.

Others were chased and stomped as the baying mob chanted “beat his ass!”
“Beat his ass! Beast his ass!”
Trump needs to list Antifa as a domestic terror group.

Rioters shot fireworks at the building in an effort to shut down the event.

The behavior perfectly fits the definition of domestic terrorism, and Antifa should now be officially designated as a domestic terrorist group.

President Trump responded to the mayhem by threatening to cut off federal funds to UC Berkeley.
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

However, instead of decrying the violence, prominent leftists across the spectrum justified and even applauded it.
Hollywood director Judd Apatow threatened Trump supporters with a since deleted tweet in which he stated, “This is just the beginning. When will all the fools who are still supporting Trump realize what is at stake?”
