THIS ARTICLE is about Ann Coulter’s cancelled visit to Berkeley and the Republican students who may be suing UC Berkeley for the school’s not allowing her to speak. (She is saying now that she WILL go).
Is the University using safety as an excuse? Coulter said in another interview that she has heard from Berkeley cops saying they’re more than ready and able to protect her and are sickened that they were told to stand down at the last speaker’s appearance not long ago.
Do you think ANY but Berkeley students other than Republicans even understand the astonishingly unAmerican stance the Berkeley libs are taking? How can THEY NOT? They call Coulter Fascist when the way they’ve been treating Conservative speakers is about as Fascistic as it gets.
How can parents hear this stuff and keep their kids in American schools? “I’m sending Johnny to UCB, where only those who express and teach leftwing ideology will be who he’ll hear….” Really? Obviously, it’s not only Berkeley which has done this; universities all over this country are pulling this. It seems these days that INSTITUTES OF HIGHER LEARNING are more about the high from pot smoking than any high aspirations to excellence, as in days gone by.
I’m stunned at the very idea that college kids don’t care, don’t think they have a right to look at all sides, a right to be safe, a right to grow in strength by making their own minds up on their politics, etc.
I can’t tell you how many young people I have heard of (even into their late fifties by now) whose parents were conservatives and who became ultra liberal after college. Have you?
How can kids miss this amazing lack of curiosity and openness fed to them?
