Push 'em back, push 'em back, WAY BACK

A UC Berkeley student who says she was violently attacked by protesters on campus the night of a planned speech by Milo Yiannopoulos in February is now suing the university — along with a host of others including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — for withholding police protection and allowing attacks like the one she suffered. As TMZ reports, the woman says she was "painfully pepper-sprayed" by "masked and unmasked assailants" within 15 minutes of her arriving at the Feb. 1 event, which was quickly canceled by the university as protests erupted that were both peaceful and anarchic — ultimately making national headlines and garnering a tweet from President Trump.

Kiara Robles, who on Twitter calls herself a conservative who is against political correctness and SJWs (social justice warriors), is suing for $23 million and names as defendants UC Berkeley, the university president, chancellor, the UC Regents chair, the mayor of Berkeley, Berkeley's chief of police, and Pelosi.

In the video below you can see Robles wearing a Make Bitcoin Great Again* hat and getting interviewed by ABC 7, followed by the pepper-spray attack from an on-looker.

Per TMZ, which obtained documents from the suit, Robles is accusing university officials of "willfully withholding police manpower" because they disagree with conservative views, and she accuses Pelosi of encouraging violence toward Trump supporters.

The university has responded in a statement saying, "We are confident that UC [Police Department's] actions will be vindicated against the plaintiff's uninformed allegations." And they say they will vigorously defend their actions and look forward to "contesting this collection of false claims."

It's about time. If every student "targeted" by faculty, or leftist student groups for "speech" issues,  sued the shit out he, she, or them-- this crap would come to a screeching halt.

She may not win, but at least she's giving them some push-back. That's a good thing.

All the comments are making fun of her and calling her snowflake. Of course if she was one of them, they'd be cheering loudly for her. smh
