Whenever there's another "protest" at Berkeley, we all roll our eyes. Protests turned riots have become the norm in the Bay Area city. Here are 5 of the most ridiculous incidents that took place Thursday in protest to Ann Coulter's canceled speech.

5. Let's all come together and sing kumbaya.

"It’s all about peace and having a good time, maaaan. My side wants to be peaceful." Yeah right. Then why not denounce the group showing up in masks and looking to cause trouble? That’s not what "peaceful" people do.

4. Arts and Crafts!

What better way to get your point across than by using taxpayer-funded USPS boxes to make a fake camera to film your childish decoupage? After all, there's no better way to demand political change than to cut out pictures of people and paste them on construction paper. Maybe if you put enough pictures of Hillary on your sign, she'll be your president...or not. 

3. Anti-Fascist Zones

On no level does this make any sense. 

 2. Failing to cooperate with law enforcement.

Can someone explain to me why it's so difficult for protestors to cooperate with local police? They're there to ensure everyone's safety, including their own. You're covering your face for a reason...to remain unknown. And guess what? It ain't going to fly.

And...drum roll please...

1.The Empathy Tent

If you're stressed out about all of the craziness in the world, particularly about Trump being President, come, have a seat and talk about your problems. You'll also get a rub down by a complete stranger who feels your sentiment.

The protestors at Berkeley are indicative of my generation who is selfish, entitled and really self-centered. Some millennials are so focused on making everything about them, that they can't step back and see the hypocrisy behind what they're advocating for. Berkeley was home of the free speech movement. Now it's home of speech suppression.
