Gay conservative and Breitbart editor Milo Yiannapoulos’s speech on the University of California Berkeley campus Wednesday night was cancelled after violent rioters shut down the university, setting fires that turned the campus into what CNN anchor Jake Tapper described as “an inferno.”
The protesters were described as violent by witnesses on social media and video of the riots confirm that description. Video shows rioters violently attacking Milo supporters and people wearing Trump apparel, mercilessly spraying them with pepper spray.
One video shows a college-aged girl giving an interview before getting pepper-sprayed at the end of the interview by an off-camera assailant. The girl was not the only one pepper-sprayed by protesters.

In addition to pepper-spraying random women, protesters set their own campus ablaze.

“For 30 years, the left has been able to bully people into silence by name calling and they’ve forgotten how to argue,” Yiannapoulos said in an interview with Fox News.
