Last Wednesday night, massive rioting took place at U.C. Berkeley in response to a planned campus speech by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos. There, gangs of “tolerant” liberals looted banks and ATMs, set fires in the streets, and assaulted Donald Trump supporters.
Champion MMA Fighter Jake Shields happened to be at Berkeley on the night of the riots, and he was disturbed by what he saw happen there.
Breitbart reported that Shields was forced to rescue a Trump-supporting man who was being beaten severely by “anti-fascist” protesters after police refused to intervene. When he realized that law enforcement was not going to do anything, Shields took action and fought off the mob himself.
“The show got cancelled so I was kind of checking things out,” Shields said. “Obviously it was a rough crowd, so I didn’t want to walk in the middle of it, and all of a sudden I see this guy running out completely covered in blood and these guys were chasing him with sticks, trying to circle him.”
“Mobs of people. Nobody helped, but people were yelling ‘get up, get up.’ Like fifteen people were trying to attack him and others were cheering them on,” he continued. “No one helped, no one had the balls to step in, so my reaction was to run in and start picking people off.”

“They came in trying to fight back, and I started backing off, but I helped grab the guy and shove him into a store,” Shields explained. “I got a few punches, I was probably hit like ten times, but I don’t have a single mark on me. They were like, ‘he’s a Nazi too!’ but this other guy was like, ‘I don’t think he’s a Nazi,’ while I was still fighting people off. I was like, do you just get to choose who’s a Nazi and who’s not?”
“I asked them ‘what did he say that made this guy a Nazi?’ and nobody knew,” said Shields. “They were like ‘oh, he said some racist stuff,’ and I asked, ‘what racist stuff did he say?’ and no one knew. They were just mindless… It was really insane.”
“More chaos started happening, so I went up to the police and tried bringing them back, but they were just like ‘we’re not really going over there. You should just stay away.’” he concluded. “I don’t know if they were taking orders from someone or if they were just being lazy. I don’t know what the situation was, but it was pathetic to watch. Our police, who are supposed to defend the citizens of Berkeley. It’s a sad scene that they would allow that.”
