President Donald Trump threatened to cut federal funding for the University of California, Berkeley after the campus erupted into fiery violence before a planned speech by conservative figure Milo Yiannopoulos Wednesday evening.

If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

The president’s tweet comes after a night of violent protests on the campus forced Yiannopoulos to cancel a book tour event that was, ironically, about free speech on campus.

Protesters broke windows, set off fireworks, and threw smoke bombs and flares, creating a dangerous environment for students and the public. Masked protesters used a diesel generator to start a large fire outside the building where the conservative author was set to speak.

Berkeley is the flagship institution of the University of California system. The school received $370 million in federal research funding during the 2015-2016 school year.

A solution to college violence that denies American liberties and violates law is to arrest the students responsible, and fine them. If repeated, expell with a denial to further education. If repeated,arrested and jailed. If repeated again, barred for further education and deported to a country of their choice and US citizenship withdrawn.

Good suggestions Robbie. Now, all we need is to present them to the White House. ?

I forgot Janet (if you see something, say something) Napolitano is the Dean of the University. It makes sense why the police did nothing to protect the people exercising their right of free speech while anarchists and Antifa terrorist organization are allowed to hurt good people. When I worked at the U of MN, this “woman” had the U put up signs,stating, “if you see something, say something”. I did put up answers alluding to the fact that Homeland Security was just another Hitler style of protecting the Fatherland. It is never about protecting the motherland, but controlling our movement… Read more »
