    Berkeley previously housed an online library consisting of more than 20,000 videos of lectures. These videos were free and accessible to the public. But they are free no longer: next week, administrators will withdraw access to anyone who isn't a Berkeley student or professor. Two employees of Gallaudet University—a school for the deaf in Washington, D.C.—filed a complaint with DOJ alleging that Berkeley's online content was inaccessible to the hearing-disabled community. After looking into the matter, DOJ determined that Berkeley had indeed violated the Americans with Disabilities Act Berkeley had two choices: spend a fortune adding closed captioning to the...

    A pro-Trump rally at the University of California, Berkeley turned into a violent, bloody riot Saturday evening. The civil disturbance led to several attendees in pro-Trump clothing and American flag regalia being assaulted. Police in riot gear, and even a man in a gas-mask looking helmet and makeshift shield with an American flag intervened after currently unidentified men were assaulted and beaten on the ground. Some Trump supporters were pepper-sprayed by opposition, according to Buzzfeed News.

    Arguments were heating up in Berkeley as demonstrators on both sides of the debate over President Donald Trump's policies clashed Saturday afternoon. People participating in the "March 4 Trump" demonstration to show support for President Trump were met by members of the group "By Any Means Necessary," and other protesters, which had planned a counter-demonstration. More than a dozen Berkeley police officers were keeping a close eye on the demonstrations, but video shared on Twitter showed shouting matches erupting and getting physical between the two groups.

    A march to support President Donald Trump is planned on Saturday in Berkeley — one of dozens planned nationwide to show support for the new president. The "March 4 Trump" in Berkeley is the only event planned in the Bay Area and is one of three expected in California. Marches were previously planned in Los Angeles and Sacramento, but organizers decided to cancel those in an attempt to bolster attendance at other events. By Friday afternoon, more than 100 people had said they were attending the Berkeley march on the event's Facebook page. Several commenters were trying to arrange rides,...

    Faced with a $150 million budget deficit at UC Berkeley, university administrators were grappling last year with how to break the news to faculty and the media about the need for major spending and staffing cuts. The solution? University officials bypassed Berkeley’s own communications staff and approved spending $419,400 to hire an outside public relations agency “to address media and stakeholder backlash,” newly released documents indicate.

Palkovic says he plans to participate in a march on Saturday. A video and a Facebook event page announced the protest organized by Rich Black. He's listed as...

    An act of vandalism at UC Berkeley has renewed political tensions for a conservative group on campus. The College Republicans say they feel increasingly threatened, and the latest incident in which a man destroyed the group's signs at its designated space in the university quad has the group raising red flags. On Wednesday, some members of the College Republicans said more needs to be done to protect their members and their property. The location of Tuesday's vandalism was at a place the group calls the Freedom Table. It's a designated space to promote their group and encourage respectful debate with...

    The UC Police Department is asking the community for help with its investigation into the Feb. 1 protest on campus triggered by the slated appearance of far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. The protest, which began peacefully, turned violent when it was disrupted by 100-150 mostly black-clad agitators. An estimated $600,000 worth of damage was done on campus and in downtown Berkeley, and several people sustained injuries. In an alert sent out Friday morning, UCPD published photos of 21 individual protesters it believes are suspects, as well as four photos of groups of people (view photos).

    Student demands for censorship get a lot of coverage. Spiked Online’s Free Speech University Rankings, now in its third annual edition, argues that there is a “crisis of free speech on campus”. By analysing the censorious policies and actions that have taken place on British campuses, Spiked concluded that 63.5 per cent of universities actively censor speech and 30.5 per cent stifle speech through excessive regulation. You can barely go a few days without encountering a new op-ed covering censorship on campus. Maajid Nawaz describes the students demanding censorship as members of the “regressive left”. Milo Yiannopoulos calls them “snowflakes”....

Headlined as “Violence as Self-Defense,” the series was intended to give a voice to those who thought the multiple assaults and serious property damage committed in the name of cancelling Milo were 100 percent right. The first op-ed, written by UC Berkekely alumna Nisa Dang, lectured critics of the riots to “check their privilege.” Dang claimed that Yiannopoulos’s views amount to “violence,” and that in turn legitimized violence against them....

    To get a handle on the real problem with the recent Berkeley protest against an extremist provocateur booked to speak on the UC campus, it helps to start with the dirty secret that violent street protest, like the incipient fascism we’re seeing unfold in the Trump era, feels good, really good, to some people. That is why this year’s project of coming together as a unified, forceful and peaceful mass opposition is such a challenge, but one that simply has to prevail to guard against our democratic traditions being badly undermined.

Four months after the Democrats warned that refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election would tear the country apart, they are refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election. In coordinated nationwide demonstrations, in random outbreaks of campus violence, in shrill denunciations and boycotts, a secession has taken place. A non-geographic civil war has seemingly been declared. In rejecting the outcome of an election in...

Consider the context. The Trump regime tells the media to “keep its mouth shut,” declares a “running war” against the press, and promotes “alternative facts.” Orders State Department personnel using a “dissent channel” created for the explicit purpose of allowing employees to voice dissenting views without fear of retribution that they should resign. Forbids the staff of various federal agencies from speaking in public either by press...

I wish them well, but I wouldn’t feel safe or welcome on...

    Democratic Rep. Val Demings (Fla.) said on Thursday that the violent riots that took place at the University of California, Berkley the prior night were a "beautiful sight." Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, was scheduled to speak at UC Berkley on Wednesday night, but the event had to be canceled due to violent protests from students and other activists. "The university said fires were set, including one caused by a firebomb that ignited a generator-powered spotlight, and commercial-grade fireworks were thrown at police," NBC News reported of the riots. One witness reported seeing a large crowd yelling "No Trump,...

    The cancellation Wednesday of a speech by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley was, according to a university spokesman, “not a proud night for this campus, the home of the free speech movement.” That’s putting it mildly. Even if the cancellation was justified by concerns about public safety after an outbreak of violence and property destruction, the fact that Yiannopoulos was prevented from speaking to a willing audience of campus Republicans should make supporters of free speech shiver. In a characteristically knee-jerk reaction to Wednesday’s events, President Trump tweeted: “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices...

    A long-anticipated speech by Breitbart.com editor Milo Yiannopolous was abruptly canceled Wednesday evening after protests outside the U.C. Berkeley event quickly escalated into a violent riot. Rockets and incendiary devices were fired at police, the Student Union campus building where Milo was scheduled to appear was besieged and severely damaged, Trump supporters were assaulted, fires were ignited, and the riot then spilled out onto city streets where windows were smashed and businesses vandalized. This page contains videos and photos of the riot taken by me, documenting the violence -- as well as additional videos taken by other witnesses showing assaults...

  • Masked UC Berkeley Rioter Exposed As A University Staff Member!

    <p>File this under the “Things I’m Not Shocked to See” category. As it turns out, one of the “antifa” attackers from the Milo Yiannpoulos event in California the other night has been identified. Not only that, he draws a paycheck from the UC Berkeley administration. Shocking, I know. Well, at least one thing is surprising: that he’s this fucking stupid.</p>
