UC Berkeley Chancellor Demands Politicians Remove ‘Weapons of War’ From Our Midst

UC Berkeley Chancellor Demands Politicians Remove ‘Weapons of War’ From Our Midst

“We cannot be satisfied with words of sympathy and remorse from our political leaders.”

This is a favorite, and incorrect, talking point of the left.

Campus Reform reports:

Berkeley chancellor calls to ‘remove weapons of war from our midst’

In the wake of two mass shootings in El Paso, Tex. and Dayton, Ohio that took the lives of more than thirty people, University of California-Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ sent a university-wide email demanding politicians take “concrete steps to remove weapons of war.”

Initially, the email strikes a mournful and empathetic tone. It calls the UC-Berkeley community to “open our hearts” and “offer condolences to the friends, family, and colleagues of those who were slaughtered over the weekend.” Christ goes on to say “we cannot and must not, turn a blind eye to emerging evidence suggesting that at least one of these despicable acts was motivated by hatred and loathing for immigrants.”

However, midway through the second paragraph of the email, Christ strikes a wholly different tone.

“We cannot be satisfied with words of sympathy and remorse from our political leaders. Now, more than ever, we must demand concrete steps to remove weapons of war from our midst,” Christ says.

After expressing her antipathy for political leaders she deems inactive, the chancellor made an appeal for unity: “Now, more than ever, we must unite and confront with determination and resolve the forces of hatred, intolerance, and division.”

When asked if Christ’s email could alienate conservative students on campus, UC-Berkeley Assistant Vice Chancellor of Communications Dan Mogulof told Campus Reform, “there is virtually nothing anyone can say in the current political context that won’t engender disagreement. But, that is a far cry from alienation.”

“weapons of war”…

a statement so illiterate that only a #Failifornia “educator” could utter it with a straight face.

Assuming he means AR15’s, they’ve never been to war.

By the way Chancellor Christ, I figured out how to get free college for everyone. You and all the teachers and administrators take a 90% pay cut. You’ll only be making $40,000 a year but remember – it’s for the children.

“Now, more than ever, we must unite and confront with determination and resolve the forces of hatred, intolerance, and division.”

The only hatred, intolerance and division I see over the past 10 years has all cone from the left. This has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with disarming their political enemies through any means necessary including deception, lies and mass murder.

Of course they want “weapons of war” (which is basically any weapon more dangerous than a pointy stick in their minds) eliminated…how can their Antifa minions succeed in bullying all the rest of us out of our wrongthink when we have available to us effective means to resist?

A sword, a horse and a suit of armor makes for a potent weapon, ask the Inca. Shall we ban horses and steel?

If she wants to write her representative, one of her senators, or the President to express her views on all this stuff, she should do so.

It doesn’t make logical sense for her to use a campus-wide email to address politicians. How many politicians who can affect these issues are employed or enrolled by UCB? Very few, and thousands of others.

So what she’s really doing is using her bully pulpit as Chancellor of the University to make a political point. That’s not the university’s proper role, as a tax-exempt institution. If it doesn’t stop this, the tax exemption should be reconsidered.

Weapons of war?
She should start by ordering the removal of sharp knives and forks from the campus dining halls. If food requires more than a spoon to eat, then further processing should be done in the kitchens before the food is served.
PBJs for all, all the time!
