Robert Reich, Don Lemon: Milo Yiannopoulos protesters could be ‘right wingers’ to create danger

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich said in a CNN interview on Thursday night that he “wouldn’t bet against” a theory that “right-wingers” were behind violent protests that led to the cancellation of a speaking event by Breitbart senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

“I was there for part of last night, and I know what I saw. Those people were not Berkeley students. They were outside agitators,” said Reich on “CNN Tonight.” “So Donald Trump, when he says Berkeley doesn’t respect free speech rights, that’s a complete distortion of the truth.

“There are rumors that they were right-wingers, they were part of a group that were organized and ready to create the tumult and danger you saw that forced the police to cancel the event.”

When asked if it was “a strategy by Yiannopoulos or right-wingers” by host Don Lemon, Reich said he “wouldn’t bet against it.”

“I saw these people. They all looked very, almost paramilitary. They were not from the campus,” Reich said. “I don’t want to say factually, but I’ve heard there was some relationship here between these people and the right-wing movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.”

Only one person was arrested after an estimated $100,000 worth of property damage was done to the campus, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

In an error of “fake news” neither Lemon nor Reich back up their claim that any “right-wingers” were linked to the protest in any way. Moreover, the only outside link is these protests is George Soros and millions upon millions of dollars being spent to support and prop up left wing protesters and groups.
