The media continues to act as if it is worried about “political violence.” But, in truth, it only cares to look for such violence if it is coming from the right side of the political aisle.
We know this is true because time and again the media ignores actual violence committed by leftists.
And this week he have yet another example of the completely ignoring violence from the left as a video that shows a leftist physically assaulting a conservative student on the campus of UC Berkeley spreads across the Internet.
A student who was hosting a table to talk about a conservative student group was physically assaulted by a left-wing student on Tuesday, according to the Daily Cal.
To everyone looking for a politically motivated hate crime to be angry about:
Here's video of a young conservative being attacked & beaten by a leftist on the campus of UC Berkeley.
I have verified the authenticity of the video.
The victim was recruiting for @TPUSA.

The campus police responded to a call about the attack but did nothing.
According to the paper:
The victim alleged that he had been tabling for the conservative group Turning Point USA on Tuesday afternoon about 3:29 p.m. when two males approached the table. The victim alleged that a verbal altercation ensued, and he began filming the interaction with his phone, according to the alert.
One of the two men slapped the phone out of the victim’s hand and proceeded to knock over the table, the victim further alleged. While he and the suspect struggled for the phone, the suspect punched the victim several times, causing injury to the victim’s eye and nose, the alert said.
In the video, you can see the conservative student does not really fight back and the black-clad leftist delivers a punch to the conservative’s face before he walks off.
This incident happened days ago and no one in the media has bothered to report it.
Now, we know darn well that if this video depicted a conservative attacking a liberal, it would have led every news program in the nation. It would be used to “prove” that conservatives are dangerous to society.
But because it once again proves that liberals are violent and dangerous, the media is ignoring it.
