This post seems to have missed the point. It was all about shutting down the free speech rights of someone probably in agreement with President Trump. How that translates into "If it isnt in agreement with Trump, its not allowed" is a mystery.

 Yes, we now see Milo and Trump are in agreement. happy to see you supporting Milo recruiting in schools.

 


 

So it begins.

 No, there is no other way of spinning it. It was all about shutting down the free speech rights of the speaker as well as the rights of those who would have liked to hear him.

 

And how ironic for it have happened at the source of the "free speech" movement. Mario Savio must be turning over in his grave.


 


And would you call the Republicans doing this 'hypocrisy' ??????

jimc91--Maybe Mr. Adams should have spoken to the Chief of Police who told the press that these were outside agitators--I and others have said this many times.  It happens all the time.  (Ferguson, Watts riots, etx., etc.)  I was really surprised Adams made this announement without having all the facts--kinda makes me wonder if he's a Trump supporter.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Scott Adams, the creator of the popular comic strip Dilbert got his MBA at UC Berkeley and has remained a top donor, both in money and time.

 

After the recent riots, where Democrat terrorists “Antifa” set fires, vandalized property and beat Trump supporters unconscious, Adams had pulled his funding from the troubled liberal university.

My Comment:

 

Maybe the Federal Government will be the next donor to withold funding to UC Berkely...

 

 

 


The alumni of schools that allow rioting to take place are already withholding their donations.  When the funds dry up, the schools will change their attitude.

That sounds somewhat about standing up for one's beliefs here without being verbally crucified for them.
