University of California police want the public's help tracking down a suspect whose brutal alleged assault of a conservative activist on the Berkeley campus was caught on video.

The campus police website said that two men on Tuesday approached a table where the activist was recruiting members to his group, and an argument ensued. The alleged victim, identified by Turning Point USA as Hayden Williams, held up his cell phone and began filming the two men who were allegedly harassing him. One of the two men knocked over the table, police said, and then punched Williams several times, causing injuries to his face. Much of the incident was captured on a witness' cellphone, but it was unclear what, if anything, Williams may have said before the attack.

So loving. So tolerant and patient. So persuasive... So not any of that.

Trump voters should be automatically qualified for concealed carry in their respective states.

“I was shocked,” she said. “You’d expect students at Berkeley to be smarter, to be more open about different points of view.”

It used to be a zoo, but no cages were needed. It was entertaining.

They’re all pretty bad, but Stanford has a nice campus and the Hoover Institute.

Did he say “This is MAGA country”? Then it’s not news-worthy. Not a hate crime.

Absolute human debris. I’d gladly swap the population of a largish village in Bangladesh with Berkeley’s indigenous trainwreck lunatic population any day of the week. We’d get hard working industrious people, and they’d get a Marial boatlift of nothing but trouble.

For a while, there was a student at Berkeley called the Naked Guy. He went to classes naked and even to a City Council meeting naked.

I think they are still searching for him. Here's his photo:

I grew up fighting in a poor neighborhood so I guess I should not blame these kids who don’t seem to know how to defend themselves, but man, you have to be more pro-active when someone gets in your face like that.

I saw that punch coming a mile away.

That's not my preferred type of entertainment, but it's better than this.

I used to drive around there with a bumper sticker that said "Politically incorrect. Not even close." No one bothered me, no one keyed the car. In my coffee shop conversations with strangers, there was disagreement but no hatred. It was fun.

His sign said, "Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims" and "This is MAGA Country".
