Nutters from the Left and nutters from the Right are using Berkeley for their protests/riots.
Apparently other nutters feel that the University should do something about it or they will stop crunching Seti work.
All too silly for words really.

100% agreed.


not really. the REAL issue here is teh university administration standing down their police and letting the riot happen.

In other words, if you want to be heard on the current controversy, try the Politics forum.

FREEDOM of SPEECH is a cruel hoax when willing audiences are denied their right to receive the speech by ideologues, zealots and other sickly obsessed control freaks.

Anyone, everyone who participates in a riot to block public discourse should be eligible for prosecution for violating the Constitutional rights of the meeting participants, and civil suit for emotional pain and suffering. It is only a matter of time until some aggressive lawyers pick up on it.

Dude...remember, the campus at Berkley has a history of free speech protests and I guess people think they can espouse their views on any media vehicle they find connected with it, to wit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1960s_Berkeley_protests

Might as well move this thread into politics. I think some of the supporters of the yellow one hijacked it for their own white supremacy purposes.
Geeze....

"Anyone who thinks I did call a larger group white supremacists should stop thinking that everyone divides the world into two categories, and that anyone on the opposite side of their own personal line is an enemy."

yeah..i think you pretty much said what you believe in your heart the first time. ''scientists'' are known for their precision.
backpedaling may work in dept. meetings. this is the real world.

Hello from London, England.

I'd just like to say - Well said, chap.

The opportunity to hear reasoned and eloquent speech seems to be a rare thing these days.

I for one, agree with you wholeheartedly in your views regarding this forum.

Best of British (and American) Luck.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards,

Keith,

London,27th April 2017.

What does the landlord do when the tenant is going to have a special event and the landlord is seeing dozens of posts on social media that groups who are guests of this special event are going to riot and damage his property? Groups such as The Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys are lighting up social media with posts calling for civil unrest and inciting riots by their followers. Does the landlord let it happen, or does he shut it down?

or does the landlord realize he's being played by the other side and make an intelligent decision that requires some guts?
The base of the injustice here is their unwillingness to support EVERYBODY's special event. isn't it.
I'm sorry...I'm still under the misaprehension a 3 digit IQ and a touch of ethical behavior is indicated for people making a living on the public dime.
Taking whatever supports the agenda you've been pursuing at face value verses questioning everything else fails the 'intellectual honesty' odor test.

Just read the message from Eric and I must say that I am very disappointed to see him use this opportunity to get in what seems like a very cheap political shot by characterizing those who wish to exercise their right to speak as "white supremacists". Am I missing something? Is there some news I haven't heard? Just what group is he referring to? Is there some clearly defined "white supremacist" group or simply someone who doesn't follow the intolerant, closed minded leftwing politics that defines Berkeley today? If I'm wrong then I apologize. If I'm right then my many years supporting SETI@HOME are over and Eric you are the one responsible.
