UC Berkeley Just Spent $9,000 on an "Escape Hatch" to Protect Chancellor from Violent Protesters
Nicholas Dirks is the poor excuse for a human being that was once Chancellor of UC Berkeley, home of the "free speech movement." In keeping with their "commitment" to our First Amendment rights, Dirks' administration has repeatedly taken action to keep conservative figures like Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter and Ben Shapiro from expressing their thoughts on campus.
When Yiannopolous was invited to UC Berkeley in February this year by the Berkeley College Republicans, he was met by waves of fascist thugs hurling fireworks and molotov cocktails, violently attacking anyone that supported him.
In a statement preceding the riots, Dirks declared:
If what Yiannopoulos and other conservatives have to say is "hate speech," does that mean antifa thugs are "bright light and fresh air"?
A new piece from the Wall Street Journal describes the measures UC Berkeley is taking to protect their adminstrators from all that bright light and fresh air:
Remember, this is a place leftists have declared the "home of free speech." A place where violent rioters and fascist animals are given license to burn and destroy, where the police are told to stand down as innocent people are viciously brutalized. Instead of stopping the terror, those charged with protecting the student body simply batten down their own hatches, lest they be forced to correct their precious narratives.
Let the students keep getting hurt. Let the properties continue to burn. Once again, UC Berkeley administrators have proven all they care about is themselves.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
