The left does “Groundhog Day
The left does “Groundhog Day”
Power Line - Thursday February 2, 2017

Today is Groundhog Day. It may put us in mind of the romantic comedy of the same name starring Bill Murray and celebrated by Jonah Goldberg in the NR article “A movie for all time.” The premise of the film is involuntary repetition. How can we escape from Groundhog Day?
Events in Washington and on the left coast display a political analogue. Watching the leftist thugs doing their thing to shut down Milo Yianoppoulos at Berkeley yesterday, we are struck by the repetition. It’s the same damn thing over and over. Below is the enraging report by the local FOX affiliate that accompanies the San Francisco Chronicle story and the enraging video that accompanies the story as well as Steve Hayward’s on the scene post on what went down.
The Chronicle coughs up this quotable quote from a sane resident of the asylum:
“This is what tolerance looks like at UC Berkeley,” Mike Wright of Berkeley College Republicans, the group that invited Yiannopoulos to the campus, said outside the student union building as smoke bombs went off around him.
As he spoke, someone threw a glass bottle of red paint at him. The bottle shattered and splattered paint on his clothing. “It’s sad,” he said.
Matthew Vadum provides some background at Frontpage here. At Ricochet Marvin Folkertsma provides a handy guide to the cult of the left from which we seek to escape today.
