By now you have, no doubt, seen this story or another like it. Berkely has told the Marines (in a LAW) that they are “not welcome” in their city. I am beside myself. Believe me when I tell you that I am not exactly a Berkeley liberal (ahem…cough…cough). But come on. How do these idiots carry on the sham that Berkeley is the place where freedom of expression truly is free? Hell, Berkeley was supposed to be the last place left on earth where you could say anything.
I guess that only counts if you want to express yourself andagree with the shameful, treasonous, ivory-tower-dwelling politicians on the city council. They actually said, “You are not welcome in our city.” The amazing thing is that all the hard working Marines I know and trust would die tomorrow to protect the Berkeley City Council’s freedom. I wonder if the feeling is mutual?
I am sending the Berkeley City Council my favorite quote:
“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
Shame on you, Berkeley, and sleep well tonight.
