Trump supporter, free speech advocate pepper sprayed and punched at U.C. Berkeley demonstrations

A string of pro-Trump and free speech counter-protesters were battered this week by out-of-control mobs.

A man and a woman - both free speech advocates - allege they were assaulted Wednesday night amid nasty demonstrations near U.C. Berkeley.

Violent protests near U.C. Berkeley Wednesday night led to the cancellation of a Milo Yiannopoulos talk.

The free speech warrior was scheduled to give a lecture on "cultural appropriation" before university officials axed the Breitbart editor's appearance.
