Berkeley Braces for Hurricane Free Speech

This article first appeared in New English Review Review.



Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro was able to complete his speech at the University of California  last week thanks to the campus and Berkeley police shedding their potted plant costumes and ensuring that free speech was actually possible. Now comes the big storm. September 24-27 has been declared Free Speech Week as conservative speakers will be attempting to exercise their constitutional rights. Not surprisingly, the far-left is trying to shut it down-violently if necessary, while the university tries to shut it down with red tape and security fees.

Acting in the spirit of education, over 132 Berkeley professors signed a letter asking students to stay off campus during the above days and skip classes. Neat. I suggest students leave campus permanently since they are not getting an education anyway. They can be just as well indoctrinated sitting at home on their computers.

Judging from the announcement (linked above), it's pretty much an all star cast. One of the lesser-known speakers is a young lady to watch. Ariana Rowlands is a former president of the UC Irvine campus Republicans, a real burr under the saddle of UCI administrators. Here is what she says on Facebook about how college administrators are attempting to keep conservative speakers off campuses.

"The newest college administration trick to stop a conservative speaker from speaking at their campus is to pretend like they're going to be cooperative with the event and make empty promises to bring the student group's guard down. Then, just when event details need to be finalized, the administration completely flips the script by digging up arbitrary reasons as to why the previously agreed to contractual requirements cannot be fulfilled and gives new, completely unacceptable requirements that must be met by a fast-approaching deadline or else they say they'll be forced to cancel the event. Colleges across California are attempting this. Sad! They will lose!"

Ariana should know. She went through this with the UC Irvine administrators when she was bringing Milo Yiannapoulos to UCI. They attempted to suspend the College Republicans for a year over some security misunderstanding. They were forced to back down when a national furor arose. In the end, the College Republicans made the UCI administration look like a bunch of boobs.

For those who care about free speech, the eyes of the nation will be on Berkeley September 24-27. No doubt the forces of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and a few Palestinian flags will show up and make their voices heard. If the cops elect to show a low profile (their preference) and once again assume the position of potted plants, there will be violence. It will not come from the organizers and supporters of the events.

How ironic that conservatives have to put up big security fees when it is the other side that poses the threat of violence. It reminds me of the old Mafia protection racket where store owners had to pay Vinnie and Sluggo money every month to be "protected"-from them.




Get Ready: It's Hillary Time-All the Time

"Buy my book, Everybody !"


Hillary Clinton is back, refreshed and in full PR mode. Her latest book, "What Happened", full of excuses about all the people and forces that took the election from her. Today she was on The View. Typical Hillary stuff. Sympathetic audience and softball questions from the panel with the exception of  Jedediah Bila. Even Bila disappointed me. Easy questions with no followup to destroy Hillary's lying answers. And Hillary was in full lying mode. She even had the gonads to talk about the need to fully investigate all those Trump scandals blithely ignoring the obvious fact that her own greatly outnumber any scandals attributable to Trump.

Next up is the Big Interview with Anderson Cooper, which promises to be more obscene than Anderson's infamous duos with Kathy Griffin.

She is the woman who will never go away.

National Lawyers Guild: "We Are All Antifa"

The National Lawyers Guild was founded in the 1930s as a legal arm of the Communist Party USA. Whatever they call themselves now, the are still Marxist in nature. They will defend any far left cause that is dedicated to tearing down the US.

I have seen their LA director, Jim Lafferty, speak twice at UC Irvine, sponsored by the Muslim Student Union in their never-ending campaign to help destroy Israel. In the past two years, representatives of NLG-attached to the UCI Law School- have acted as "legal observers" for Students for Justice in Palestine as they disrupted pro-Israel events on the UCI campus on May 18, 2016 and May 19, 2017.

Now this despicable organization has come out in support of Antifa. Here is an op-ed by NLG's Nina Farnia, Rachel Lederman and Meredith Wallis.

http://www.sfchronicle.com/opinion/openforum/article/We-are-all-antifa-12174947.php

Contrary to the misleading photo that headlines the SF Chronicle article, the Antifa folks show up dressed in  black with masks and helmets, ready to do battle.

"Last month, thousands gathered in San Francisco and Berkeley to defeat the hatred of fascism and white supremacy. A united front of labor, clergy, students, socialists, anarchists and others successfully prevented the fascists from holding their rallies."

In contrast to the Charlottesville rally, which was organized by KKK and neo-Nazi types, the rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley that Antifa "prevented" from happening were organized by free speech advocates, Trump supporters and conservatives-not fascists or white supremacists. There is a difference. Even so, these so-called lawyers ought to know that they were blocking the exercise of others' freedom of speech rights. Who are the fascists here? 

In addition, the list of examples of "alt-right" violence given by the writers is weak, to say the least. "Death threats" while always wrong, are all too often manufactured and lacking in any corroboration. Claiming to be stalked by a guy with a swastika tattoo is pretty weak especially when you compare it to the actual violence that Antifa carries out when they show up. 

Fortunately for Antifa, their own violence in Charlottesville was overshadowed by the murder of a protester by a neo-Nazi as well as the fact that Antifa was opposing true white supremacists. That was not the case in San Francisco or Berkeley. Antifa is a despicable organization that traffics in violence and attempts to shut down those with whom they disagree. While that is clearly antithetical to what lawyers should stand for, it is hardly surprising that the National Lawyers Guild would defend them.

Bay Area Shame

You could not find two American cities that more exemplify the moral bankruptcy of leftism more than San Francisco and Berkeley. This was once again on display this weekend.

A conservative rally planned for Saturday in San Francisco fizzled out amid threats of violence by the thugs of Antifa. San Francisco mayor Ed Lee declared "victory".

On Sunday, a conservative rally in Berkeley was disrupted by the violence of Antifa.


http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/08/27/5-assaulted-at-berkeley-protests-as-black-clad-anarchists-storm-rightwing-rally.html

Keep in mind, the conservatives rallying were not KKK or neo-Nazis. They were conservatives who largely support President Trump and who believe in America and the principle of free speech. They were not trying to promote hate. Yet, with the assistance of local authorities, the thugs of Antifa and their allies carried the day.

Here is more from Legal Insurrection. It appears the  Berkeley police stood down and allowed the Antifa to enter the rally area and assault the conservatives.

Is this the face of America now? Black-clad and masked hoodlums enforcing their will through violence and supported by local leaders?

BDS and Antifa: A Dangerous Combination

Cornell law  professor William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection calls this the most dangerous development he has seen on campus in many years. The forces of Boycott, Divest and Sanction (against Israel) and Antifa are teaming up to fight the voices of the right when they come to campus. I totally agree with his assessment.

http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/08/anti-israel-profs-organizing-antifa-campus-network/

What this means is that we can look forward to repetitions of what happened at UC Berkeley recently when Milo Yiannopouls was scheduled to speak.

This comes in the wake of Charlottesville, but we are not talking about these two groups banding together to protect students from the KKK and neo-Nazis. They want to stop voices like Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, David Horowitz, and others who espouse the conservative point of view. That ,means also that Antifa will be there to disrupt any pro-Israel speaker. And when Antifa shows up, you can expect violence. They don't debate; they come to fight and disrupt. In short this is, as Professor Jacobson says, a dangerous cocktail.

Since Stanford Professor David Palumbo-Liu is involved in this, I am reminded of when he came to take part in a free speech panel at UC Irvine. This was in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris. Palumbo-Liu made a statement to the effect that the US State Department definition of anti-semitism included any criticism of Israel. After the event concluded, a friend and colleague of mine confronted Palumbo-Liu (in my presence) and told him his statement was demonstrably false.. The startled professor, rather than defend his statement, turned tail and scurried away like a frightened rabbit. If his little thugs do initiate violence at an event and he is present, he will be the one hiding under a table.

University  presidents and chancellors need to be on alert. The "campus climate" is about to get stormier. There should be zero tolerance for Antifa on any campus.

A Must Read: Stealth Invasion

Hat tip Creeping Sharia and Investigative Project on Terrorism




“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.” 
-From The Explanatory Memorandum

The blog, Creeping Sharia, has a piece tonight on an important new book. It is called Stealth Invasion by Leo Hohmann and describes the mass migration of Muslims into the West.

https://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2017/08/01/stealth-invasion/



The book argues (and I concur) that this is part of a plan originated by the Muslim Brotherhood. The plan is to implant Islam upon the West through mass migration and demographic change. It is not about assimilating into American society, rather "destroying the Western Civilization from within". This is from a document called the Explanatory Memorandum seized in 2004 by the FBI and used as a government exhibit in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, which involved Islamic charities diverting money to Middle East terror groups. The letter, which was addressed to the "North American Brothers" and had an address list that included many US Islamic organizations-including the Muslim Student Association, outlined the duties of the North American Brothers to undermine US civilization and lay the groundwork for Islam to be supplanted upon the West. It was not about blowing up bombs or killing people. It was using our system, institutions, and laws to subvert us while working for demographic change and acceptance of Islam. The Islamization of the US.

Civilizational Jihad


The problem, which is noted in the above link, is that too many of these people arriving have values that are opposed to our own. The leadership of most of the major Islamic organizations in the US, like CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA and others, have demonstrated that their goals and visions do not coincide with ours. There is an agenda, which is to gradually supplant American  freedoms with Islamic values and sharia law. Yes, it is a long-term project, but the roots have been firmly planted. Look at what is happening in Europe today.

I highly recommend this book, and I will be getting it myself.

Obama Inc. Planned To Deploy Troops To Polling Places

by Daniel Greenfield: This is the sort of thing you expect from Venezuela. But it almost happened under our last left-wing regime.
President Obama’s White House quietly produced a plan in October to counter a possible Election Day cyber attack that included extraordinary measures like sending armed federal law enforcement agents to polling places, mobilizing components of the military and launching counter-propaganda efforts.

The plan allowed for the deployment of “armed federal law enforcement agents” to polling places if hackers managed to halt voting. It also foresaw the deployment of “Active and Reserve" military forces and members of the National Guard “upon a request from a federal agency and the direction of the Secretary of Defense or the President.”
There is a mention in the plan that it's illegal for armed Federal personnel to set up shop in a polling place. And any talk of deploying troops around an election would be a Weimar signpost and deeply distrubing. There is also no concievable call for it. It's reasonable for the FBI to participate in on-site investigations of hacking incidents. No amount of hacking would require the deployment of the military unless the goal is to reverse the results of an election. With all the expected rioting that would occur.

And that does ring some major alarm bells.

The only reasons you need that kind of deployment is to manage the social dysfunction after a natural disaster or political unrest. This sounds like political unrest was anticipated.
