[url]http://www.drudgereport.com/flash2.htm[/url] By MILLIE LAPIDARIO and WENDY LEE Contributing Writers Friday, May 10, 2002 UC Berkeley administrators are reviewing how an English course focusing on the plight of Palestinians received approval for next fall even though it discourages conservative students from enrolling. The English R1A reading and comprehension course, titled "The Politics and Poetics of Palestinian Resistance," states in its course description that "conservative thinkers are encouraged to seek other sections" -- a violation of the university's Faculty Code of Conduct.

I am planning a seminar on "The Sexual Mores of the Middle East: Where Men Are From Mars and the Sheep Are Scared." Definitely NOT for liberals. [;)]

Appparently Berkeley's having a hard time finding people willing to give commencement speeches because the school is perceived as "anti-American" [shock] and because jackasses always demonstrate against and heckle the speakers.

They've found that it's exceedingly difficult to teach a class when people constantly interupt w/logic and reason....

I think this is great! The more liberals commit stupid blunders like this, the more they show the rest of the country how faulty their logic really is. I seem to recall an old saying about giving someone enough rope and they will hang themselves. This is what I see happening here.

The only problem with that is that most people have been so brainwashed by socialistic bullshit, neoconservatism (modern "conservatives" who are anything but, like Bush), and the media that they view this kind of shit as "kids being kids" or even worse, kids standing up for people who are downtrodden.

In other words: Those who have a brain in their head and might present factual information that will make all of the sensitive leftists feel stupid are encouraged not to terrorize their fellow students with facts.

Author Frank Peretti described a tour of UC-Berkley as "It's like taking a tour of a sewer in a glass-bottom boat."

Aren't you happy YOU are not paying giant sums of cash to have your children exposed to that bullshit.
