    A UC Berkeley student who says she was violently attacked by protesters on campus the night of a planned speech by Milo Yiannopoulos in February is now suing the university — along with a host of others including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — for withholding police protection and allowing attacks like the one she suffered. As TMZ reports, the woman says she was "painfully pepper-sprayed" by "masked and unmasked assailants" within 15 minutes of her arriving at the Feb. 1 event, which was quickly canceled by the university as protests erupted that were both peaceful and anarchic — ultimately...

    A U.C. Berkeley Student who was pepper-sprayed when protesters violently rioted and shut down the Milo Yiannopoulos speech in February is suing the university, its campus police and several other entities for obstructing her First Amendment rights, among other claims. Kiara Robles was pepper-sprayed in the face by a protester who snuck up behind her while she was finishing an interview with a local news outlet about the protest and her support for Milo. She is now leveling a litany of charges against U.C. Berkeley, the school’s police department, Chancellor Nicholas Dirks, President Janet Napolitano and Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin....

    A 28-year-old former East Bay community college professor was arrested for a brutal bike-lock attack amid a clash between President Trump supporters and radical left demonstrators last month in Berkeley, officials said Thursday. Video of the April 15 assault exploded on right-wing websites in the days following the clash as scores of cybersleuths began identifying Eric Clanton as the masked man seen bashing a Trump backer in the head, causing serious bleeding. Clanton was arrested early Wednesday morning in Oakland and booked in the Berkeley Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon that is not a firearm. He...

    Patrick Ford, who graduates from UC Berkeley today with an MBA, is a standout at the Haas School of Business. Berkeley News recently talked with Ford about the origin of his mission, “Guy Talk” and other manbassador activities at Berkeley-Haas and post-graduation plans. What is a manbassador, and where did the name and idea come from? Manbassador is a more memorable name for the universal term “male ally.” A male ally is a man who works to end gender discrimination by supporting and being an advocate for women. I started noticing and caring about gender equity as an undergrad. Some...

    Many people have called for changes on college campuses. To a certain extent this has been treated with humor-based dismissal. The branding of these children acting in a petulant manner is referred to as "snowflakes." But now we have reached a dangerous tipping point that threatens to destroy the freedoms we all savor as part of our heritage. This occurred when Ann Coulter was stopped from speaking at U.C. Berkeley. It was really terrible when others were stopped from speaking because of obnoxious behavior or actual physical violence. For example, a speech by Milos Yiannopoulos was stopped because of protests...

    The U.C. Berkeley newspaper, The Daily Californian, ran an op-ed today by a “brown trans femme” – whatever the hell that is – titled, “Campus must prioritize safety of marginalized over free speech.” It was written by a third-year transfer student studying political science and ethnic studies, named Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordovo-Goff. This person is an incoming ASUC Senator and lead organizer with the Transgender Law Center. The entire piece is a contemptible, hate-filled hit job on our country and every Caucasian in it.

    Janet Napolitano wasn't brought to California to legitimately run the massive taxpayer-funded University of California system; she was brought in to help facilitate the "fundamental" changes in the entire system There are numerous news articles about University of California President Janet Napolitano apologizing to legislators this week over a state audit which found $175 million squirreled away in a secret account, while the UC universities were increasing tuition costs on students. The problem is, her apology is hollow, meaningless, worthless, or any number of synonyms for her senseless drivel. She knows nothing will happen to her.

    In a contentious 4 ½ hour legislative hearing yesterday in Sacramento, Janet Napolitano, President of the University of California made a pro-forma apology for conduct that should have gotten her fired. She tried to rig an independent state audit, and she got caught, and she is sorry [I paraphrase]. Alexi Koseff explains further in the Sacramento Bee: University of California President Janet Napolitano apologized Tuesday for creating the “wrong impression” that she had improperly interfered in a critical state audit of her office released last week. At a legislative hearing to review the audit findings, Napolitano acknowledged that she...

    Full Title: UC Berkeley Student Leader: Police Protecting Campus Free Speech Brings ‘Trauma’ To Minorities A University of California student senator who deemed the cancelled Ann Coulter speech a “violent conversation” has complained the police presence on campus brings “trauma” to minority students. On Sunday, a student-run publication, The Daily Californian, published an article about the security measures UC Berkeley and the local police department took after the protest broke out last Thursday following the cancellation of Ann Coulter’s speech. According to the article, almost 300 police officers were present in order to prevent any potential violence.

    Our opponents push the misconception that, by militantly confronting them, we are stifling their free speech. We may be a bunch of leftists and anarchists, but we’ve still read the Constitution. The First Amendment protects you from government censorship. It does not allow you to impose on the 14th Amendment rights of others, prevent other people from using their freedoms of speech and assembly to hold you accountable for the things you say, or guarantee you a right to a paid speaking gig on a college campus. Ultimately, the bloc’s actions against Milo Yiannopoulos were not in response to the...

    A substantial police presence both on the Berkeley campus and at a gathering in a downtown park kept hundreds of activists on both sides of the free-speech debate in line during protests Thursday. Hundreds of far-right protesters, some dressed in goggles, gas masks and knee pads, rallied in support of conservative speaker Ann Coulter in Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park . Some at the rally were wearing combat gear, including military grade ballistic helmets and body armor. Dozens of police in riot gear stood by ready to crack down on violence as had been anticipated between provocateurs of...

    Well-edited, five minute video shows a compendium of moments of high action at April 15th 2017 Battle of Berkeley. Editor sets video to the famous tune, "Glory, Glory Hallelujah", matching clips and musical mood. While it starts out funny, I found this an incredibly inspiring video, and I have seen most of the prominent ones treating this topic several times. I usually find the tune a little hokey, but in this context it really, really got to me. You will be inspired by this video, even secular patriots will be.
