Robert Reich Implies Trump Incited Sweden’s Migrant Riots

Robert Reich, a professor at UC Berkeley and former U.S. Secretary of Labor, has insinuated that President Donald Trump incited Monday’s riots in Sweden — echoing his unproven conspiracy theory just weeks ago that Breitbart News organized violent demonstrations at his university.

Teresa Mull: Colleges Are Creating a Generation of Bigots

Colleges should be places where free thought is encouraged, not met with riots in the streets. For UC Berkeley to declare it has an agenda contrary to Yiannopoulos is telling. It’s obvious the modern campus climate is, and has been for a long time, a progressive one. But if we don’t allow our young people to exchange rational ideas in a peaceful manner in a place that’s supposedly dedicated to learning, what hope does our country—one that is founded on the principle of “ensuring that there is no prohibition on … abridging the freedom of speech”—have left?

UC President Janet Napolitano Played Key Role in Providing Sanctuary to Illegal Aliens

Amid the violent protests that prompted the cancellation on Wednesday of Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’s speech at the University of California at Berkeley, it may be instrumental to recall that UC President Janet Napolitano – former secretary of Homeland Security under President Obama – has been a key player in providing sanctuary to illegal aliens.

The committee is examining the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, focusing on combating campus sexual assault. (Photo by Astrid Riecken/Getty Images)

UC Berkeley Administration Shares Blame for Anti-Free Speech Riot

Chancellor Dirks and the UC Berkeley administration deserve to be held accountable for the violence that violated Milo’s rights — and the rights of those who wanted to hear him — as well as for the betrayal of the university’s free speech legacy.

Black Students at Berkeley Want Building Named for Cop Killer Terrorist

The University of California Berkeley’s Black Student Union (BSU), pressuring the administration to make the campus more hospitable for blacks, has included an outrageous demand among the list of issues it wants addressed: renaming a building on campus after Assata Shakur, who killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster in 1973 and is wanted by the FBI as a terrorist.
