What to Do About Violent University Protests? Starve the Beast!
President Donald Trump (I do enjoy typing that!) this morning posted a Twitter message threatening to cut off federal funds to the University of California/Berkeley because of student rioting.
If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

See, Berkeley was going to have a conservative speaker, one Milo Yiannopoulos, so the “students” had to riot and create a tumult so that the speech would have to be canceled on account of inability to ensure security. Hard to do that when everybody’s rioting.
To demonstrate their tolerance, their good will, and their acute reasoning, the students burned ATM machines, broke bank windows, beat people up, and set fires on and around the campus. This I love: they even torched and looted a Starbuck’s! Oops–it seems being a big fat prating liberal won’t protect you from other liberals.
This is our chance–and it won’t come again!–to starve leftism right there in its nest. The university is the nest where leftist vermin hatches. This is the training ground, the propaganda center, where otherwise normal young people are turned into raving idiots.
There is no reason whatsoever for 17 to 20 million Americans to be enrolled in assorted colleges and universities. It’s bad for the country, bad for the students who have enormous debts to pay off but have been taught nothing but how to be nincompoops, and good only for the academics themselves, who get to suck America’s blood, and a really nice pension at the end.
Now is the time to cut America’s overgrown, over-funded university system down to size–not with a scalpel, but an axe.
