A fine example of higher education ?

February 2, 2017

Even the most committed of you my dear readers who are on the opposite side of the political spectrum than I will have to admit that the violence and stupidity displayed by the rioters at the University of California Berkley can only exemplify one of two things. Either the students at the university do not believe in freedom of speech or it was a riot instigated by outside sources.

If we accept the premise that the students do not believe in freedom of speech then we must ask where did they acquire this distorted understanding of our nations constitution? The speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos a gay conservative, was invited by the university to speak and as we have seen in the past as offensive as some guest speakers are, like the president of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia University, most speeches go on without the violence we saw at Berkley.

Has the quality of our schools been lowered so much that we do not teach the principles of the very foundation of our Nation any more? Or have these same teachers so polluted and skewed the essence of the constitution that the students now believe if anyone not agreeing with what the general beliefs are is worthy of the violence we see here?

If that is not true then the other reason for the riots is even more troubling, because it means someone or some organization is working as a puppeteer pulling the strings of this demonstration. This puppeteer raised its ugly head during the inauguration day celebration and continued with the protests and violence at Berkley, leading one to believe we can expect more of the same in the weeks and months ahead.

So either our children no longer believe
in freedom of speech
or someone
is working to undermine
our constitution
I do not know which is worse….

    The Nazis understood the importance of indoctrinating youth; look at the ‘Hitler Youth’ and similar programs. The easiest way to control a population is by keeping them ill-educated and not teaching them history or critical thinking. It appears our institutes of ‘higher education’ have been quietly doing this for at least a few decades now and probably longer. I do not doubt that Nazi sympathizer Soros has a hand in many of the protests but I’d also wager some were setup on social media. If we had journalists who reported unbiased news and really worked to uncover the truth behind all news stories we might have a chance at discovering who or what is driving a lot of these destructive activities but given the lame-stream media is in the tank with the uber-liberals we will never get the truth from them.

    Don’t know what happened to my first post, but here goes. Forever Alaskan hit it right on the head; all roads lead to George Soros, American hater extraordinaire.
    No doubt a lot of the damage was done by paid protesters as witnessed; a lot of these animals were wearing black & face masks. How else is this able to get organized so quickly unless these animals are on alert to the next “hot spot?”
    This protest also had the blessing of the ultra-left university president. Wonder if she’d be willing to foot the bill for the damages? I doubt it. And there were also a couple of supportive tweets from Hollywood, Debra (I’m a Mess)ing & someone else. By the way, I haven’t seen any stories of moving trucks outside any of the homes of the Hollywood elites who threatened to leave the country if Trump was elected. Guess they have it too good here after all.
