Trump on Berkeley Burnings Over Milo Speech: ‘NO FEDERAL FUNDS?’

55

President Donald Trump on Thursday sent out a scathing Twitter message to the University of California at Berkeley, threatening to pull federal funding from the school because of its violent student body uprising in the face of a planned speech from Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos.

Students, as previously reported at PamelaGeller.com here, waged riots on campus in protest of a Milo speech, that was soon after cancelled.

Students at the University of California at Berkeley went nuts over a planned Milo speech, setting fires across campus in protest.

Trump, in a tweet, wrote: “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”

Trump’s tweet came after protesters smashed windows and tossed smoke bombs at the student union building, all in hopes of stopping Yiannopolous from Breitbart from speaking.

Yiannopoulos had to be escorted to safety. At least three people were injured in the melee.

As the New York Daily News noted:

“More than 1,500 protesters pushed back on Yiannopoulos’ appearance, and many cheered when news of the cancellation broke.

“Berkeley — often cited as one of the best public universities in America — said in a statement it condemned ‘the violence and unlawful behavior that was on display’ and ‘deeply regret(s) that those tactics will now overshadow the efforts to engage in legitimate and lawful protest against the performer’s presence and perspectives.’ The school noted that Yiannopoulos was invited by the Berkeley College Republicans, not the university itself, but school officials and police still helped plan and secure the event.”

The school receives $370 million from federal coffers to conduct research. The entire University of California college system received about $8.5 billion from the federal government.

    Whether you’re talking about cop killers, terrorists, radical
    Islamists or dictators, all you have to do is say, “I hate America,” and
    liberals start to sympathize with you.

    • Grandson Of TheGrumpus

      Kitcrsn,
      While true, you are somewhat understating the case!

      The Progressives, (aka “liberals”) not only “…start to sympathize…”, they’ll outright wetly slobber all over you!

      We absolutely have to turn this situation around!

      These people were, for the most part, born in the U.S.A., of parents who are|were citizens here, and their parents are|were citizens, too. Three generations, so they aren’t “new comers” to the U.S.A.

      Perhaps people who are convinced that this country is evil, that this country “…never was great!”, should relinquish citizenship!

      I know, they’d be afraid of being w/o a country… but in good conscience, can we allow them to undergo the daily anguish and humiliation of having a part in the doings of such an evil place, (in their eyes) as this country?

      I tell you, for the sake of being humane, we must releave them of this terrible burden!

      Write your congress-critters and insist, for the love of Humanity, that we releave these people of the taint of U.S.A. Citizenship now!

  • VLParker

    How about ten year jail sentences for rioting.

    • Fred

      10 years in San Quentin serves the savages right.

    • Liatris Spicata

      Oh, VL, you squishy soft, touchy feely leftist ….

      How about also throw in at least restitution for damage done, the value of which might be calculated based on the collective damage done during the riot as assigned on a pro rata basis.

      Berkeley is paying for their tolerance of leftist thuggery for two generations. Time for them to pay the piper.

    • MYak

      Someone would have to have actually been arrested. The local government and university supported the riot.

    • Kensyl Burns

      I say yank the funds and then shut them down, they obviously have NO control over the student body and even encouraged the “protest” and allow them to turn violent!!! It’s a public school so the people of California and the nation own that school, we have a say in what should be allowed and tolerated on that campus and the campuses of any public school that receives federal funding!!!

    • LastTrainOut

      How about $8.5 billion for our Vets…

  • Fred

    Anyone involved in this savagery should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Put the savages in a cell with members of the Aryan Brotherhood at San Quentin. Problem solved.

    • AlgorithmicAnalyst

      True, the problem is that they and the local politicians are on the same side (Progressives in Sanctuary Cities).

      • Fred

        Unfortunately you are correct- starting with the loser mayor in NYC.

        • LeslieFish

          So yank all their federal funding too.

          • Fred

            Darn right! This should be the policy nationwide.

    • Craig

      ONE person was arrested. ONE!

      • Fred

        It’s a disgrace, isn’t it. Since the left love posting everything on social media, every HR person, personnel officer, etc. should keep photos of these savages and question them about it when they come looking for a job- the 1 or 2 that try to find 1.

  • jag11

    Accountability. Those involved and responsible should be arrested, charged, and tried.

    • eimb1999

      And shot.

  • Mark Steiner

    From the article: “The school receives $370 million from federal coffers to conduct research. The entire University of California college system received about $8.5 billion from the federal government.”

    Dangerous words from II Peter 2:12-13 speak of the rioters: But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that
    count it pleasure to riot in the day time …

    Suspected here that some of the money went into research as to how to riot against people you disagree with. Time to pull the plug on the nonsense. Mr. Trump is right.

        muslims must carry a knife on them all the time due to “religious” rules. This includes schools and the U.S. backed right down and allowed it. Cowardice is a global crisis. We could NOT win WW2 today.

        • Amethyst_2012

          Might you be confusing Sihks with muslims? I know that Sihks have to carry a knife. Think it is the Male Sihk.

    • LeslieFish

      Not quite the same. The ’60s radicals marched and protested because *they didn’t want to die in a war they couldn’t vote on.* This bunch of idiots riot and smash and burn because *they don’t want anyone else to hear* anything they don’t like. That’s a considerable difference in character.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    berkley, bedlam, both institutes for the mentally unstable. Any violence in any educational institution that contravenes the Constitution, should result in the immediate withdrawal of all federal funding. It is one thing to have opinions, but not at public expense. A lot of money could be re-allocated from useless educational institutions to useful projects, like roads, bridges, law enforcement.

    • Craig

      Not to mention their constant ranting to kill Mr. Trump.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The student fools and their unenlightened teachers and administration, do not realize that without funding, they will starve. President Trump is being more than reasonable, if these rather stupid below normal intelligence occupant of educational/mental institutions keep at it, they will find themselves between a rock and a hard place.

        • Craig

          I don’t know if Trump has the will to do the defunding. He was refusing to take the terrorists from Australia that rat obama wanted here, but now they are coming here to be “vetted”.
          Is there a crack in the dike?
          Rat obama wanting the muslim jihadist refuse from Australia just goes to prove that rat obama wants to punish the U.S. I certainly hope he, rat obama, gets what he deserves.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            There is probably some stunned international treaty or deal that the democrats signed pertains to the import of human garbage. It will take a while to straighten out the mess President Trump was given.

          • michaelofsydney

            As an Australian,I am so sorry our pathetic weaselly Prime Minister did this to Trump. I will never vote for his party again (while he remains leader)

          • Vlad

            Michael, you have a good choice now, Vote Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, Australian Liberty Alliance and there is a sprinkling of other good parties, but IMHO, it’s best to keep your votes to those 2. One Nation is doing great now in Q’Land and maybe also WA.
            We need to get rid of the oxygen thieves leftist rubble.

          • Vlad

            With “extreme vetting” none of the “refugees” will set foot on American soil. Hopefully President Trump will just send them back to where they originally came from, we really don’t want them here in the land of Oz.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    “Berkeley — often cited as one of the best public universities in America — said in a statement it condemned ‘the violence and unlawful behavior that was on display’ and ‘deeply regret(s) that those tactics will now overshadow the efforts to engage in legitimate and lawful protest against the performer’s presence and perspectives.’ The school noted that Yiannopoulos was invited by the Berkeley College Republicans, not the university itself, but school officials and police still helped plan and secure the event’. berkley, you are going to have to do better than that, you are a dismal failures as an educational institution, by promoting through allowing the Constitution right to free speech to be oppressed by rioters violating the right to free assembly, berkley, you aid and abet anarchy. President Trump is well justified to cease financing your treasonous criminal conduct.

  • Dennis

    Yesterday, here in America, at The University of California, at Berkley, a mob “violently” protested a speech that was about to be delivered there, and the speech was cancelled. The article above confirms that even here we are now dealing with people who are
    prepared to violate our Constitutional rights of free speech. The protesters appear to have been students at that university in the main. The really scary outcome of this new manner of conduct that seems to be permeating our youth, is that it exacerbates my belief that our youth have been raised within a society that has no tolerance for any opinion that is contrary to theirs, and they have
    become a people who do not recognize that the gifts of freedom which flow from our Constitution must be protected and they seem to have lost the courage necessary to do so. I have to think that this must be related to ultra-liberal teaching, a total failure of their parents to pass on to them what being an American is all about, and the ultra-liberal media, which, in my opinion, promotes extreme dislike of anyone that they do not agree with. Free speech, without promoting violent conduct, should continue to be available here, and mob like conduct should be stopped. Bad times are ahead for our society unless we get a handle on this nonsense, and our youth re-learn what the responsibilities are to be American and what it will take to preserve our rights.

    Mr. Trump, please cut the funding to these dens of anti-American propaganda and communism. Melt some “snowflakes”.

  • jay

    Do not assume the rioters were students. These “black bloc” hoodlums have been seen at all kinds of violent, storefront-smashing “demonstrations”. There were to be sure some vile, reprehensible students in the “protests” but anyone can come onto the campus and signs from groups such as the Revolutionary Communist Party are seen among the placards hoisted by the various loonies.

    • Craig

      I always tell folks to read the professionally printed signs. They tell you who the enemy is. It is always communists or socialists.
      The revolutionary communist party wants a violent overthrow of our Constitution.
      I just bought another case of 5.56 and a half case of 7.62.

  • Frank Jack Fiamingo

    Violence is at the core of all socialist rhetoric. “By any means necessary” is a consistent mantra employed by those on the left. There are *ALWAYS* consequences for initiating violence as long as the rule of law persists – and it *WILL* persist. The majority of US citizens have had enough of the leftist’s use of violence as a means of interfering with free speech. Whether or not you agree or disagree with Milo, he has the right to DEFEND himself against those who initiate violence against him.

  • DancerTiffy

    Trump is essentially saying: Hey, don’t do that again, and if you do, I might defund you. Yeah, a hollow and empty threat, which essentially means nothing. Why is this even news?
    I really really doubt Trump will be defunding any schools.
    I remember Trump saying he would remove the muslim brotherhood from the schools. Nothing being said about that. The terrorist group CAIR is still fully functional. Nothing being done about that either. And, muslims still pouring in, along with everybody else. Trump is not providing us with guidance; I don’t know where it’s all going.
    I hope things get better. But after watching all the Trump people being pounded into bloody pulps, I figure it’s time to get a gun for protection. The police are apparently not too keen on protecting us.
    Yes, these are disheartening times filled with anger and frustation.
    But, we got Trump into the white house, so anything is possible.

  • ed

    Ironic that the snowflakes damaged a Starbucks while rioting. This, after Starbucks’ CEO said he would fast-track 10,000 jobs to “refugees”. He would hire refugees over citizens.
    Serves him right that his over-priced-taste-like-mud coffee shop was damaged.

    • just_one_Deplorable_guy

      I call it 300 mile coffee. Because that is how long it will take to drink that parts degreaser.

    • LeslieFish

      That tale should be broadcast far and wide, and let the citizens boycott his overpriced mud into oblivion. The real reason he’s hiring “refugees” is that they’ll work cheap, and a couple of labor unions have been trying to organize his shops for the past few years.

  • Bruce_in_San_Jose

    The university has responded to Trump’s threat of cutting Federal Funds by saying it wasn’t their students but an outsider activist group. This is a bogus attempt to duck the facts. The campus police did not enforce law and order, saying later that a little property damage is better than the injuries that might have been inflicted by their attempt to quell the riot! Much like what was said during the Baltimore riots that the rioters needed space to destroy to get it out of their system!

    The failure of the University to actually provide safety and allow a couple of hundred, which is NOT a small portion of the total crowd, to burn and vandalize should get them targeted for reduced Federal funds. UC Berkeley essentially supported the riots.

    An easy and very impactful way to affect UC Berkeley is to deny loans to students entering Berkeley.

    Just research? No federally insured student loans should be able to be used there. Not a penny of any federal dollar. The professors teaching this garbage should be prohibited from being paid by any school taking any federal funding. Treason and instigating criminal activities are not free speech.

  • Kathleen3

    Tax payers should be up in arms, as ultimately they will be responsible for paying for the damage to schools that are already supported via their tax dollars and inhabited by students and others who cause the damage who, most likely, pay not one cent in taxes.

    Trump does know how to wage economic warfare. I’d say, let Milo speak or Trump yanks the federal funds — and let’s see how well UCB tolerates the whining bullies then.
