    Should Berkeley lose federal funds?

    With what they charge for tuition why do they even need federal funds?  That is not a cheap school.

    I would extend this to all colleges that are infringing on students' basic civil rights, such as:
    * free speech zones in a small space away from main thoroughfares and subject to official approval
    * school sanctioned limiting or expulsion of conservative and religious groups, like when conservatives are given Fs for not espousing liberal views and teachers who punish students for sharing conservative views 
    * schools that are actively discriminating against conservatives and religious people in admissions to school, graduate programs and hiring

    Survey shocker: Liberal profs admit they’d discriminate against conservatives in hiring, advancement … re-biased/

    The big review paper on the lack of political diversity in social psychology … diversity/

    The answer is a resounding yes!  The behavior exhibited by these students went way beyond protest. The federal government, aka my tax money, should be withheld permanently.

      I agree. According to one source I read that student groups pledged to shut it down.  I will let them use my tax money to " deprogram " their minds but that is it.

    No they should not. With all agreements there are provisions. They have broken several of those provisions. So you do not just end the contract you renegotiate the terms. Because one party fails to fulfill it's obligations under the contract does mean you burn up the contract if there still are benefits to be received.
    You sit down and head bang until you find a solution to the problem and then move on.
    Make the contract one of preconditions of corrections to the breach. If there is a subsequent breach then again you take it from their.

    So funds should be placed in an escrow until certain remedial measures are taking and moving forward from there is also conditional.

    Students did not riot at U.C Berkeley. There are videos of men in black with black snow face masks carrying clubs. There was about a 100 of them who caused the riot. They came from off campus.
    I went to U.C. Berkeley. There was no judgements about student's political philosophy. Most students are too busy to be bothered. It's the number two rated West Coast college. Students want careers. Not sex, drugs, rock n roll, and riots.
    Taking money from a school--now that's a political action.

      Then, should this be investigated by the FBI and the school security to determine students versus non students, as well as where were the police and campus security during the riots? Number 2 is a good number, it fits.

      My daughter graduated from there in about 2010. The culture was pretty danged liberal. But I saw no evidence of promoting negative action. Debating these young brilliant minds was a privilege. But the city was kind of "rich arrogance". Beautiful tho!

      I saw something on Facebook earlier that one of the rioters was identified as a administrator at Berkeley.  But not everything we read on facebook is actually true.

    Absolutely! Times have changed since Dr. Billy Kidd and I were at Berkeley. They should no longer receive our tax dollars. And any school who is allowing sanctions for illegal immigrants should also lose federal funding.
