Donald Trump was recently elected president and simply saying that out loud is usually enough to start an argument. So you can imagine how that might escalate when said argument is presented to an army of protestors.
As well as those compelled to oppose them.
Internet mouthpiece Milo Yiannopoulos, who clicks and clacks for the conservative website Breitbart, was expected to appear at U.C. Berkeley on Wednesday (Feb. 1, 2017), but the surrounding protests devolved into violent altercations, forcing an immediate cancellation.
As expected, local businesses were looted and people were injured, but former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran and World Series of Fighting (WSOF) headliner Jake Shields may have helped prevent a serious situation from becoming fatal, thanks to his quick intervention.
From his official Twitter page:
The aftermath of me helping a guy after being jumped by thugs. The police and 100's of civilians stood and watched. pic.twitter.com/7hN2iJ4kkf— Jake Shields (@jakeshieldsajj) February 2, 2017
“Dude, you guys have your faces covered, you’re attacking people, you’re being fucking fascists,” Shields told one of the masked assailants. “Look at you guys, you’re fucking embarrassing.”
