Rather than being called the University of California-Berkeley, the school should be renamed the University of Censorship-Berkeley. This Campus Reform article highlights just how ridiculous things have gotten.

According to the article, “On Sunday, conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos attempted to follow through on his promise to speak at Berkeley despite the decision of the Berkeley Patriot, a student organization that had agreed to sponsor the Free Speech Week, to pull its support from the 4-day event, citing pressure from the university. In a letter to Berkeley’s Interim Vice Chancellor Stephen Sutton posted online by Yiannopoulos, the attorneys representing the Berkeley Patriot threatened legal action against the university for allegedly failing ‘to protect our students from physical assault and vandalism,’ threatening students with a ‘hate crime’ investigation, and several other grievances. ‘The intent of the threat was clear: Cease speaking out or face criminal investigation,’ the attorneys wrote. ‘Well, our clients’ heard the Chancellor’s threat. They will be quiet, for now.’ You are further notified that our clients are contemplating initiating litigation against the responsible parties and the administration for violation of our clients civil rights,’ the attorneys also warned.”

That’s quite a story. The birthplace of the free speech movement now threatens people it disagrees with criminal investigations. If that doesn’t sound like the tactics of a fascist state to you, it’s time for you to hit the books. That’s definitely one of the tactics a fascist state would employ.

Berkeley isn’t part of the free speech movement. They’re just another mindless liberal institution that’s been infiltrated by anti-American thinking. How the mighty have fallen.
