Berkeley Campus On Lockdown After Loose Pages From ‘Wall Street Journal’ Found On Park Bench

BERKELEY, CA—Advising students to remain in their dormitories and classrooms until the situation was resolved, the University of California, Berkeley declared a campuswide lockdown Thursday after several loose pages from The Wall Street Journal were found on a park bench outside a school building. “At 11:15 this morning, several pages from two separate sections of today’s Wall Street Journal were discovered spread across a bench outside of Eshleman Hall in Lower Sproul Plaza,” read the urgent alert sent to all students and faculty, emphasizing that while campus security and local police had safely disposed of the pages, there was no way of knowing if others were strewn elsewhere on university grounds. “As of now, the perpetrator remains at large, so it is vital that you stay where you are until the all-clear is given. In the meantime, notify police immediately if you have any additional information at all regarding this incident.” At press time, a black-clad group of 50 students were throwing bottles at the bench while chanting, “No ****s, No KKK, No Fascist U.S.A!”

Coulter wrote that if Universities of higher "learning" cannot protect free speech, then they need new management.

I don't know when you think that was. I was at San Jose State in the late 50's and Berkeley was considered nothing more than a libbie, hippie hangout even then.

But it's not that far from reality, when you think about it.

Where do you think the liberals get all their ideas. "Sounds like a good idea to me!"
