The one upside of the violent attack at UC Berkeley is that the issue of free speech on college campuses is finally getting the attention it has needed for a long time.
- Suspect Arrested for Attack on Conservative at UC Berkeley
- Suspect in UC Berkeley Attack Charged With Felony Assault
- Suspect in UC Berkeley Attack Pleads Not Guilty in Court
This has clearly gotten Berkeley’s attention.
The victim is using the spotlight for good.
Even Trump has gotten involved.
- Trump promises Executive Order requiring universities “to support free speech if they want federal research dollars”
Ted Cruz, too.
Compare and contrast.
- Prof Dismisses Trump’s Efforts to Protect Campus Free Speech as ‘Wrongheaded’
- College Republican Event at Portland State Shut Down by Anarchist Disrupter
Here is the problem.
This needs to happen all over.
The lunacy can’t go on forever.
- Students Protest President of Liberty U. for Saying His Granddaughter Will be Raised as a Girl
- George Washington University Introduces Bias Incident Reporting System
- University’s ‘Hawaiian Day’ Deemed Culturally Insensitive
A woman with guts.
Another one bites the dust.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The fact that Greenberg was arrested and charged for the assault surprised me. But this is “Berserkeley” , an overgrown insane asylum striving to be a miniature North Korea. At some point I fully expect normal Progressive corruption to assert itself and Greenburg to get only a slap on the wrist or walk away entirely.
It’s not just UC Berkeley. This guy is apparently a techie and has worked at several universities for a decade or so. More info available at:
Whether his thugosity traveled with him or not isn’t
I also suspect that he will get a complete pass and walk away clean. The DOJ could come in with a Civil Rights violation though and waiting for that is going to be like waiting for the next ice age. The DOJ already whiffed on Professor Bike Lock.
Greenburg could be described as a spoiled brat…if he was 11 years old…but he’s not. In reality, he’s a dangerous thug who should have to answer for his thuggery.
By his name, Greenberg appears to have been born Jewish.
But he’s chosen to be a Kapo.
I don’t like shooting threats made on a college campus or any other public venue.
It’s not really a war on free speech, but one of many battles the leftist elites are initiating in their goal of fascism.
Crony-communism pays extraordinarly well, if you are one of the elites. Just ask Crooked Cortez.
The dumbassity of this dumbass makes regular California dumbasses look like brilliant dumbasses.
