What was the source of this rumor? A google search of zachary greenberg antifa doesnt even bring up so much as a breitbart article.

Just heard this morning the man arrested for assault Zac Greenberg is 28 and is not a student at Berkeley. Greeny was a student in 2009-10 there.

It's weird. I understand why those that are left-center or left on this board would pooh-pooh the issue or accuse the OP of trolling, but it indeed seems that Berkeley has a problem with left-wing violence on its campus. This is only the latest in a line of incidents there. 

It's as anti-intellectual as the MAGA guys, really.

I imagine it's a fine spot to be for an older style conservative to get all the political gifts they could dream of including 2-3 conservative SCOTUS justices and a gargantuan tax cut, while keeping whatever odd purity of looking down your nose at the people who delivered it to you. After Trump is gone and his supporters go back to their caves, the conservatives will reflect upon this time and think the degradation of political discourse was worth the gains they made.

Can you post the other incidents?

There have been speaker intimidations, invite yanks due to fear of violence, burning buildings, violent Antifa protestors, etc. 

A quick Google search should suffice, I think.  

Here's two, there are others. I wouldn't read the Wikipedia page. Sounds like a leftist's dream summarization.

How does an act committed by a non-student and condemned by Berkeley indict Berkeley in any way?

Why is he on campus? Why is it, every time Bezerkely has a problem, it's "outside agitators" they're letting hang around? 

I can bull#### on that. They can enforce who is on their grounds and who isn't. Isn't this kid a former student?

What colleges have you attended that were closed off to the general public?

Yale. There's a huge ####### fence around campus keeping the town out. 

Trinity in Hartford has the same thing.

Look, you can argue Berkeley with someone else. I honestly don't have the time for this rabbit hole. #### keeps happening there. Riots, attacks, violence, fires, Antifa keeps showing up on campus, etc. 

Argue with somebody else on this one. This is just a dumb discussion and I'm calling it before I waste any more time.

Leaked Chats Show White Nationalist Group's Plot to Infiltrate Turning Point USA

"... the brashness of Turning Point USA’s rhetoric — with its slogan “Socialism Sucks” — and its grassroots structure has, on occasion, left the group vulnerable to infiltration or appropriation by more radical elements of the far-right.

“Hate groups see such an opportunity in the coarse, fragmented, and often bigoted socio-political mainstream, that they are willing to ditch more abrasive propaganda that would otherwise alienate potential new adherents,” Levin said.

In the leaked Identity Evropa Discord chats, one server member wrote that his “ultimate goal” was a “subversion of my school’s TPUSA chapter into a front for IE [Identity Evropa.]”

“Broke: Infiltrating GOP,” another user wrote. “Woke: Infiltrating TPUSA.” Another member claimed that he’d been recruiting with the leader of his school’s Turning Point USA chapter at the club fair."

Yeah, it used to be mostly 1. private schools; and 2. schools in areas that were filled with crime when the buildings went up.  Berkeley used to be very different.  They could probably use some sniper towers now.
