Intolerance at Berkeley as Faculty Demand Gay Immigrant Stay Off Campus

Because the gay immigrant in question is pro-Trump:

Twelve UC Berkeley professors sent a letter to Chancellor Nicholas Dirks requesting that campus administration cancel Berkeley College Republican’s event for Milo Yiannopoulos.
Calling his conduct “harassment, slander, defamation, and hate speech,” the letter cites examples of Yiannopoulos’s words and actions that the professors say violate UC Berkeley’s code of conduct as reasons to cancel Yiannopoulos’s talk Feb. 1. Since the letter was sent Jan. 3, nearly 90 additional professors have signed it, giving their support.
“We believe wholeheartedly in free speech and in the presentation of views that may be controversial or disturbing, politically or personally,” said David Landreth, one of the 12 professors who authored the letter, in an email. “However, Mr. Yiannopoulos’s public talks routinely veer into direct personal harassment of individuals; they often also call for such harassment and aim to incite it.”
The letter said women were referred to as “cunts” at Yiannopoulos’s talk at the University of West Virginia and transgender people were called “mentally ill” at his talk at the University of Delaware. As of July this year, Yiannopoulos was also banned from Twitter for encouraging his followers to attack an African American actress with hate speech, according to the letter.

Have any of these Berkeley professors said a word about their student Pablo Gomez Jr. being accused of murdering a woman last week? Of course, Gomez was a member of the Queer Alliance Resource Center at Berkeley, he harassed Republicans on the UC-Berkeley campus, and his “hate speech” on Twitter was directed toward white people, so I guess the faculty don’t care whether he stabbed a white woman to death.

Meanwhile, College Republicans at Berkeley are getting doxed, and I blame the climate of hate that the Cal faculty has incited on campus.
