    I suggest you click on the Los Angeles times link that NY Post sourced because well... It's the NY Post.

    The 'empathy' tent was created by a third party individual who was not involved in the fight. He invited the asshats who did hoping they would have a calm dialogue.

    This quote by a student sums up the Berkeley issue for me
    It's obvious at this point that most of these instigators are not students who are trolling the campus. I do feel bad for most of the students who just want to attend their classes.

    I'm all for freedom of speech but it's time to kick out non students and faculty from the campus. They are a distraction to the students receiving their education.

    Hopefully Trump does what he was elected to do and gets rid of empathy tents so his services will no longer be needed.

    If he weren't elected, there'd be an empathy tent on every corner!

    If he were elected, everyone would find every excuse why he won and the losing candidate would write "What Happened". Oh Wait.

    But the tent ultimately offered little respite — and nearly toppled during clashes between conservative students and leftist activists, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    Which of these two groups belong on campus?

    the ones paying tuition.

    I agree those 'activists' were completely in the wrong.

    It's as if they have zero self-awareness or are trolling.

    I'll hope you agree next time when a right wing non student trolls Berkely like the many times it happened before.

    If a career civil servant with executive and legislative experience at the highest levels of government lost to a game show host, wouldn't you wonder what happened?

    According to the LA Times report (not the NY Post which was basing off of that report) this latest protest was started by far right activist Joey Gibson who is not a student of Cal.

    no comment on this Joey Gibson first attempt at free speech was cancelled due to threats of violence? no comment on Any Means Necessary (what a a great name for a terrorist org) using violence and the fact they not students either?

    What I'm curious about is how many times Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher and leader in extremest group BAMN (By Any Means Necessary), can get arrested for assault before losing her job. Even 1 arrest for assault is enough to get teachers in the Houston area fired in most districts.....even if they are acquitted. For her, that's gotta be at least 3 or 4 arrests just this year....makes you wonder what low standards they have at Berkeley schools.
