President Trump announced he will sign an executive order to promote free speech on college campuses, saying that if the schools want dollars, they will have to allow people like Hayden Williams to speak.  Williams was recruiting students fro conservative groups on the UC Berkeley campus when another man assaulted him and punched him in the face.

Summary by JW Williams

Berkeley, California: Leadership Institute Field Representative, Hayden Williams, 26, was assaulted and punched in the face by an assailant on February 19th, which was captured on a video that went viral.  Williams is not a student, but was working to recruit students for conservative groups.  Zachary Greenberg, 28, was arrested over a week later after the Citizens United Foundation offered a $50,000 reward leading to the conviction of the assailant.  Greenberg is not a current student or employee of Berkeley, but was employed by the university from May 21-July 9, 2010 as a lab assistant in the Department of Psychology and did attend classes there at one time.

President Trump announced that he will sign an executive order to promote free speech on college campuses, and threatened to remove federal funding of non-compliant colleges.  UC Berkeley responded by defending the campus police force and spokesman Dan Mogulof claimed that the attacker was a lone bad actor.  He said that the media has ignored the fact that UC Berkeley conservative student groups hosted a large number of conservative speakers and that the school spent about $4 million in the past year on security measures.  Critics responded by mentioning the multiple riots at Berkeley in 2017 when police stood down and allowed the violence to play out, thus creating a culture of intolerance and violence at Berkeley by leftists without any accountability.

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 1

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed.
