Speaker’s talk denied at Berkley, home of Free speech

free-speech-quoteImagine this, “free speech for me – but not for thee!”  Is this what it is when a man goes to speak on a university campus on a fairly innocuous topic, but he can’t because of liberal riots?  This university campus is Berkley, the home of free speech!   The movement started there in the 1960’s.

The man’s name is Milo Yiannopoulos, public speaker, provocateur, and journalist at Breitbart News. Being gay, he is in a required minority – but he’s conservative, seen as “Alt-Right.” He doesn’t fit the liberal narrative, so he’s seen as a threat.

In his own words, Milo wasn’t going to talk about anything that you’d imagine would prompt violent riots …”

The liberals promoted the protest the day before the event when the “Berkeley Against Trump coalition” posted the invite to the protest in the student newspaper.  The Cal Berkeley Student Newspaper PROMOTED Protest-Turned-Riot The Day Before Milo Event

Like him or hate him, Milo Yiannopoulos should have been given the right to speak.

Here’s a student from Iran who wanted to hear Milo, wanted that freedom of speech at the Berkley Campus.  He said, “I invite everyone that was here to see the difference between intimidating people by street thuggery and an intellectual discourse that is based on meritorious learning.”

Why do liberals believe they have the right to speak, and no-one else?

It just goes to show,

The heart of a fool inclines to the left. Ecclesiastes 10:2.

Backlash

As a result of the Free Speech Movement started by liberals at Berkley University in the 1960s, there was a substantial voter backlash against the individuals involved – and Ronald Reagen won an unexpected victory in the fall of 1966 when he was elected Governor of California.  I predict another backlash, with liberal behaviour putting off the Gen Y and Millennials who believe in free speech.  Will there be a swing to conservatism as the new counter-culture?

On his blog, Adams announced last week that he, too, doesn’t feel “safe or welcome on campus” because of his political views, so he said he would no longer support the public institution where he earned his MBA.

      1. That is a good scripture. Here are some verses from Matthew:

        Matthew 25: 31-46: “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

        UC Berkeley is supposed to be some sort institution that stands for academic excellence. I think it is mostly about Marxist/Satanic Brainwash.
