UC Berkeley Investigates This As A ‘Hate Crime”

On Thursday night, the David Horowitz Freedom Center put up posters all over the campus of UC Berkeley in conjunction with Milo Yiannopoulos’s “Free Speech Week.” The posters are part of the Freedom Center’s campaign to expose Students for Justice in Palestine as a Terrorist Front. The next morning, as soon as they were discovered, Berkeley’s new chancellor, Carol Christ, ordered her minions to tear down the posters, lest they be seen and read by Berkeley students. Chancellor Christ accompanied this assault on free speech with an announcement that her staff was investigating to see whether the posters constituted a “hate crime.”
