The Fragile Rich

Ahead of a talk from conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro at UC Berkeley, a letter has been sent by the university to students, faculty and staff, stating that counseling services will be made available to those who feel “threatened or harrassed” by certain speakers. “We are deeply concerned about the impact some speakers may have on individuals’ sense of safety and belonging,” the letter states.

And you are going to tell me this place hasn’t turned into a total joke? They haven’t been able to teach or produce any research in the past decade, so they hypercompensate with these childish tantrums. It’s their recruitment strategy. They no longer can attract good scholars, so they try to recruit students who aren’t looking to learn. They cater to the rich brats with an exaggerated sense of grievance against the world that fails to celebrate their magnificence as much as they want.

    It will be interesting to see whether Shapiro will actually get to present and finish his speech, or whether Antifa anarchist thugs will be allowed by Berkeley to violently disrupt it…

    Maybe he feared that you were confirming the recent rumors in the local news…
