The University of California at Berkeley became the first university to to be threatened with the loss of federal funds for not allowing free speech.
Recall that the university canceled a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos, a controversial Breitbart News editor because they could not assure his safety.
But wait….who has the police force and the guns? Surely the university that is supposed to be THE free speech icon of the world would do everything in it’s power to ensure that even controversial viewpoints are heard? Of course we all know that universities today have nothing to do with vigorous academic debate. They are pure and simple propaganda centers for the left.
So why should taxpayer money go to institutions like Berkeley that only give lip service to free expression of ideas? These universities are receiving huge sums of money which they use to stifle all conservative viewpoints. They undermine our very system of government.
President Trump knows this as do many other Republicans. Trump, however, is the only one brave enough to call these radicals out. Right after the disgraceful and openly un-American riots at Berkeley, Trump tweeted the following
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?
