Chaos that erupted at the University of California, Berkeley, to oppose right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was shocking not just for the images of protesters setting fires, smashing windows and hurling explosives at police, but because of where it took place.
UC Berkeley is the birthplace of the free-speech movement and has been known for more than a half-century as a bastion of tolerance. As the university cleaned up Thursday, it struggled with questions of why the violence spun out of control and what has happened to the open-minded Berkeley of the 1960s.
“It was not a proud night for this campus,” school spokesman Dan Mogulof said, later adding, “We are proud of our history and legacy as the home of the free-speech movement.”
( Billy’s thoughts – Read the rest of the above story. I think we are seeing a generation of young people who were never told no, and won’t spank enough. Of course not all of today’s young people, but too many of them. They think everyone including the government owes them something. They also don’t understand what it means to be a good loser when their guy, or lady loses. Just my thoughts. Thanks…
