Berkeley

Ah yes, Berkeley. I was preparing a long post to discuss this situation. I have to tell you that others have done it better than I could dream of. Go check this post for details. Here’s a quick taste:

You all remember the action in Berserkely from last October, right? Round two is on. And it’s time to start droppin’ elbows.

“We are the defenders of democracy, the upholders of the Constitution,” said Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink. “If it weren’t for people like the people in Berkeley, standing up for what they believe, we’d be living under Hitler.”

Well, well well. Is that right? YOU are the defenders of democracy. YOU uphold the Constitution. It’s you and the folks in Berserkely that have stood up against Hitler, eh?

Well listen up toots, and listen fucking good. It’s people like my grandfathers (and grandmother) who stood up for what they believed and actually beat THE REAL HITLER. It’s people like my father and my uncles who kept the forces of Soviet communism at bay. And it’s people like me who have raised their right hand and sworn to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” and are putting in long hours away from family and friends to ensure that a piece of parchment that sits in a climate controlled, bulletproof case in Washington continues to be the guiding light for this nation. These are all things that you wouldn’t know shit about, you shriveled up, hideous waste of space.

It gets better so give it a read. The only thing that I can think to add to this is that no matter what the city council in Berkley chooses to do, with regard to reversing thier decision, they have already made their choice and all Federal funds should be cut from all programs there. At least for a period not less than one year, and depending on their actions perhaps quite a bit longer.
