You Thought Trump Was Tough On Protesters, Here’s How Tough Reagan Was! (VIDEO)


When then-Governor Ronald Reagan was dealing with protesters at the University of California – Berkeley, he didn’t tender his resignation or worry about creating safe spaces.

What he did is considered one of the most controversial acts by a Governor in american history.

Reagan ordered the California Highway Patrol and the Berkeley police to “use whatever method they choose against the protesters”. These were his own words.

Police soon opened fire with buckshot and tear gas. One student was killed, 128 were admitted to local hospitals.

When asked about the order, Reagan responded firmly.

“All of it began the first time some of you who know better, and are old enough to know better, let young people think that they have the right to choose the laws they would obey as long as they were doing it in the name of social protest”
