stop gaslighting minorities into thinking the hatred against them is “just an opinion”, stop gaslighting minorities into thinking the hatred against them is “using freedom of speech”, stop gaslighting minorities into thinking the hatred against them is “nothing to protest over”,, stop trying to validate blatant racism as something everyone should have the right to resort to

Last stop on Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking tour canceled by protesters

  • School officials canceled the final stop Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking tour at the University of California, Berkeley, on Wednesday evening after protesters made it impossible for the event to continue.
  • Student activists and anti-fascist demonstrators shot fireworks at the building where Yiannopoulos was scheduled to appear.
  • Others threw smoke bombs and some damaged property. Some appear to have lit a fire on the campus’ Sprout Plaza.
  • UCLA also canceled his scheduled appearance for Thursday.
  • Trump sounded off on the protests Thursday morning, threatening to withdraw federal funding from the public university. Read more

This is dangerous.

Threatening to silence an iconic liberal college because of protest against a speaker who is exactly the opposite of the school. Inviting an editor an chief from Breitbart, a hate mongering wannabe news blog, deserved that exact reaction. To pretend like there was going to be fair and equal dialogue is bullshit and plays the role of victim on Yiannopoulos’s part. You chose to go into the dragons den, don’t be mad you got burned. You bring racist, fascist ideas to a campus full of liberal minded, democracy prone, diverse students YES THEY WILL DRAG YOU.

But this continued threat to suppress protest is deeply anti democratic, and borders on parallels with Nazi Germany. There are states proposing that protesters may get real jail time, or be allowed to be murdered by motorists. These are dangerous times.

I’m proud of you UCB. May you lead the way for other campus’s.

Milo Yiannopolous who has been called a Neo-Nazi White Supremacist, despite the fact that he’s a Gay Jewish Immigrant… Said this on January 26th 2017, before the Berkeley Riots.

“You shouldn’t give a shit about skin color, you shouldn’t give a shit about sexuality, you shouldn’t give a shit about gender, and you should be deeply suspicious of the people who do.”

Riot, Protest, Start Shit. 

We’ve tried peaceful protests and nobody listens. Every liberal peaceful protest is met with a flood of people calling us whiners and mocking us. If they won’t listen to peaceful protests the only option is militancy. Make it so that they have no other option but to address our concerns, they have ignored us too long.

I support the actions taken by the citizens of Berkeley to stand up for what they believe in. 

I can’t believe I have just spent days of my life defending people I don’t even fucking like because there are actual cunts on this website who 

a) think you should be able to physically assault people who disagree with them

b) think context doesn’t matter

c) think jokes are any kind of -ist, or are in any way inherently bad because they’re against some protected group

d) don’t think freedom of speech should apply to those they disagree with, and are willing to hurt people and violently riot in order to shut them up

You’re all terrible, you have wasted my time and you have only proven yourselves to be the fascistic cunts that you claim to hate.

UC Berkeley just introduced gender-neutral bathrooms in 40 campus buildings

Finding a gender-neutral bathroom on UC Berkeley’s 1,200-mile campus just got a lot easier. University officials announced that 40 campus buildings now house gender-neutral bathrooms, and that a renovation project will add even more. The announcement comes on the heels of big news in the fight for transgender bathroom rights.

| 8/2/16 | I woke up at 8 am this morning even though I don’t have class until 12:30 to get in a quick study sesh. Summer session is winding down to the last two weeks and it’s been intense and time consuming. BUT it’s so worth it knowing that at the end of next week, I will be done with the last prerequisite for biology and will officially be a Spanish Linguistics and Molecular and Cell Biology double major starting in the fall!!
