KTVU anchor: ‘I experienced hate firsthand’ at Berkeley rally

and…

Masked anarchists violently rout right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley

Behold:

“I experienced hate firsthand today. It came from these people dressed in all black at a protest in Berkeley. Ironically they were all chanting about no hate.”

and…

In Berkeley on Sunday, some observers derived satisfaction from watching far-left protesters beat up and chase off a young man at the rally in apparent support of Trump.

“It’s a good time,” said Tom Martell, 70, of Crockett, who stood in Civic Center Park with his girlfriend, Lisa Argento, 53.

“They’ve got to be chased out,” Argento said. “I moved to the Bay Area and pay good money to live here. I don’t want these people here. They need to leave us the f— alone.”

Now imagine if a right-winger had said supported the use of violence to keep out “those people,” because he pays good money to live there and doesn’t want their kind nearby. Go on, imagine it.

    We live in an age of delusion. The stock market will always go up. My house will always be worth more. Bitcoin is headed to the Moon. We are going to eliminate all hate and the haters. That last is probably the most laughable. What do you think the proportion of hate is to love? A million to one? A billion to one? Probably unquantifiable. There are more haters than lovers and always will be. It is written into our DNA. Hate gets a bad rap. Hate is the most abundant and pure of emotions. It will live forever. Love is more likely to morph into hate than vice versa. Good luck getting rid of hate.

      I’d be content with getting rid of everybody wearing a mask at protests.

      Is the stock market in an eternal climb, or is the currency in which it is valued declining? The same applies to real estate.

      Bitcoin? I’m reminded of tulip bulbs.
