student newspaper for UC Berkeley – ran an op-ed defending the use of violence in shutting down a speech by alt-right popularizer and professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. The op-ed, titled “Violence as self-defense,” was a whole series of op-eds talking about why violence was useful in shutting down political debate.
“To people with platforms who decide when a protest should and should not be violent: You speak from a place of immense privilege.
