Message 1863998 - Posted: 27 Apr 2017, 18:21:52 UTC - in response to Message 1863997.  

Eric,
Just who do you refer to specifically as White Supremacists ? Do you have any names? Or is it a group of people that begins with a (C)? Conservatives perhaps? Just curious.


All of five posts after he just answered the question for you...

The hateful back and forth needs to Stop!


I totally agree... please do!

I think he meant by "White Supremacists" is very simple.

A group of RACIST people who are white. "SIMPLE" the fact that they are conservative is a sad after thought.

Unfortunately, the 'this isn't our concern'' approach isn't a good one.
You fail to push back and stay in your own little world...you must agree with them.
Your use of the term 'white supremacists' is revealing...especially as they're not. They're the kind of patriotic nationalists that not only used to be the backbone of America but are largely the ones that preserved your right to bitch with their blood.
Providing free resources to aid the budding careers of people who are in my opinion destructive to our country and way of life isn't what I want to be doing.
If the troops on the ground at the uni start to suffer, it can only help to bring your administration back to reality.
If all the STEM departments got together and petitioned the administration to stop hurting the university's core mission, it couldn't hurt.

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.
