Berkeley professors demand silencing of dissent

Fascists: Merely because they disagree with Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, a group of more than 100 University of California-Berkeley professors have signed a letter demanding that he be banned from their campus so that he will be prevented from speaking there during a scheduled lecture on February 1.

More significantly, these so-called intellectual educators demonstrate that they have never once read or listened to a single word Yiannopoulos has written or said by their claim that he supports “white supremacy, transphobia, and misogyny”. My god, the guy is as openly homosexual as can be imagined. More importantly, his primary advocacy is for freedom and human rights. I guess these are ideas that modern academics can no longer support. Instead, they like to grind their boots into the faces of those they oppose.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Not a super-huge fan of Milo, but I do find him interesting & relatively entertaining.
    (I’m almost to the point of preferring Milo over Beck right now, although I’m anything but alt-right.)
    Milo likes to “own the language, render it harmless, and turn it back on the left.”

    It’s not surprising however, (sadly, unfortunately) the Berzerkeley Radicals with Tenure, would attack a British gay guy who likes to date (very) black men.
    -His last Tour was called “The Dangerous Faggot tour.” And he was very proud of it.

    -representative & fair portrayal of Milo & Crowder, back-n-forth, in longer-form.

    What is it really that these highly educated professors fear?

    Are they sooo confident in their own view of how the world works that they have absolutely no tolerance at all for anything other than their own point of view?

    Is it because they fear and are unable to competently refute what it is that they believe that they disagree with? Isn’t fear usually the cause for such intolerance and not confidence in ones position?
