Last month we reported on a conservative student who was beaten by a leftist on the campus of California’s Berkeley University. Now two weeks later, we can report that police have finally roused themselves to arrest the attacker.
The media completely ignored the video that shows a leftist physically assaulting a conservative student on the commons of the UC Berkeley campus.
A student who was hosting a table on the commons to talk about a conservative student group was physically assaulted by a left-wing student on February 19, according to the Daily Cal.
To everyone looking for a politically motivated hate crime to be angry about:
I have verified the authenticity of the video.
The victim was recruiting for @TPUSA.

The campus police responded to the call about the attack but ended up doing nothing at all but shrug their shoulders because the attack happened on a conservative. But they have finally acted.
According to Daily Cal’s Feb. 21 report:
The victim alleged that he had been tabling for the conservative group Turning Point USA on Tuesday afternoon about 3:29 p.m. when two males approached the table. The victim alleged that a verbal altercation ensued, and he began filming the interaction with his phone, according to the alert.
One of the two men slapped the phone out of the victim’s hand and proceeded to knock over the table, the victim further alleged. While he and the suspect struggled for the phone, the suspect punched the victim several times, causing injury to the victim’s eye and nose, the alert said.
Well, after weeks of doing nothing, Berkeley and the police have finally been goaded to action and they have arrested the student responsible for the attack.
According to Campus Reform:
The school identified the suspect as Zachary Greenberg. This is the first time that UC-Berkeley has publicly named the suspect who on Feb. 19 was caught on video punching Hayden Williams, a conservative and employee of Campus Reform’s parent organization, in the face. At the time, Williams was helping conservative groups recruit new members.
“Today, an Alameda County Superior Court Judge issued a warrant for the arrest of the suspect in the matter involving a February 19 assault on Sproul Plaza. Zachary Greenberg was arrested by the University of California Police Department (UCPD) on the warrant and booked into jail at 1 p.m. UCPD will formally present the case to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of the filing of criminal charges. Once the matter is presented and reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office, additional information will be made available regarding a charging decision,” UC-Berkeley said in a statement Friday.
According to information obtained from Alameda County public records, Greenberg is 28 years old. He was booked into the Glenn Dyer Detention Facility in Oakland, California at 2:27 p.m. local time on Friday. Greenberg’s arraignment is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m. local time. His bail was set at $30,000. Jail records show that Greenberg was charged under California Penal Code 245(A)(4) F, which is classified under assault and batter
It took the weeks. But they finally tried their hand at justice in Berkeley… real justice, not “social justice.”
