As if there weren’t already enough leftist ridiculousness surrounding Ben Shapiro’s successful speech at UC Berkeley, The Hill took it upon themselves to add more fuel to the fire:

Except the “protesters” Shapiro was addressing weren’t the tiresome, run-of-the-mill student protesters; his remarks were directed at violent Antifa thugs:

Click through to The Hill’s article and that becomes clear:

“Thanks to antifa and the supposed anti-fascist brigade for exposing what the radical left truly is,” Shapiro said in his speech, referring to anti-fascist, or “antifa,” activists.

“All of America is watching because you guys are so stupid. It’s horrifying, I am grateful, and you can all go to hell, you pathetic, lying, stupid jackasses,” he said.

So why couldn’t The Hill be bothered to include that detail in their tweet and headline? It’s almost as if they’re more interested in stirring the pot than they are in accurately representing what Shapiro said. But why on earth would they do something like that?

They certainly don’t seem to have much respect for the truth.
