Thompson-Robinson rallies No. 17 UCLA past Cal, 35-28

"The UCLA bruins used the late second quarter touchdown to build momentum as they held off California, 35, 28. Ruins quarterback Dorian Thompson Robinson was 21 of 30 for a 189 yards and a touchdown. Dealing with these guys all year. And being able to be a real brotherhood and lean on each other at times when things get harder or adversity hits. So again, I'm just so thankful to be able to play with these guys again and enjoy this win for sure. Meanwhile, the golden bears lost 7 of their final 8 games. In the loss, Cal's Jack plummer was 24 of 34 passing for 294 yards and four touchdowns. Ryan leong, Berkeley

"berkeley" Discussed on People of the Pod

"At the start of this academic year, members of law students for justice in Palestine at the University of California's Berkeley campus persuaded 9 student groups to adopt a bylaw banning speakers and members that support Zionism. 35 Jewish organizations, including AJC, wrote an open letter to the university, pointing out the discrimination and demanding action. When Jewish student leaders expressed their gratitude to AJC this week, CEO Ted deutch assured them that AJC's efforts would not end there. For this week's episode, we invited two Jewish activists from the Berkeley campus to discuss what the exclusionary policy means for Jewish students and faculty at Berkeley. They sat down with my occasional co host, meggie, fredman, AJC's director of the Alexander young leadership department, negi, the Mike is yours. Joining me today on people of the pod, doctor Ethan Katz associate Professor of history and Jewish studies at UC Berkeley. And Charlotte Aaron, who is a second year law student at UC Berkeley. Ethan and Charlotte, thank you for joining me. Thanks for having us. Thank you. In the last few weeks, there has been significant coverage about events at UC Berkeley law school in particularly about what appears to be exclusionary anti Israel adoptions made by a handful of student groups. So for our listeners who may not have the full story, Ethan, can you paint a brief picture for us of what has unfolded? In August, I believe it was actually maybe on the first day of classes. There was a decision by several student clubs, 8, I believe, at least Berkeley law, to adopt a set of bylaws that have been proposed to them by students for justice and Palestine at the law school, the law school. Now that was a proposal made to dozens of clubs at Berkeley law. So it was a relatively small number who adopted these biologicals, but the bylaws were very discriminatory in that they said these cults would not invite any speaker who had expressed continued to express support for Zionism or what the violence referred to as the apartheid regime in Israel or the occupation Palestine, what they clearly mean by that last clause is not what many observers refer to as the occupation of the West Bank. It is just the presence of Israeli sovereignty in portions of the historical land of Israel analysis. So these were met with tremendous concern by not only many Jewish law students, but many others of us who are involved in efforts on campus to support your students. I co run anything. Sandwiches and education program at Berkeley Berkeley law has a very large Israel studies program. And the dean of Berkeley law came out very strongly to say that he found these to be very problematic to be against the principles of community of the university to say that every club has the right to free speech, but that he becomes very concerned with students are excluded. And he said, I thought, forcefully, that himself, if these bylaws were to be followed to the letter, would not be able to speak at these clubs as someone who himself is zionist. He also reminded close of the fact that the Chancellor of the university has come out in writing multiple times against the BDS movement. We were sort of kind of waiting to see what was going to happen next in terms of what was going to be the full impact of these, and also what was going to hopefully be the impact of the dean's response in curbing this or maybe making some groups reconsider. We did not hear a lot more about this controversy after the initial week or so that it came out until an editorial published in the Jewish journal of LA, almost exactly three weeks ago, claiming in its headline. And in this content that Berkeley was developing so called Jewish freed. So this quickly ignited a firestorm in the media, a major controversy, and it brought the issue much more into focus, not only on campus but off. That had various impacts on campus. One of them was that we felt the need to try to explain what had happened. What we already have in place, which is considerable to try to support your students. And raise awareness about these sanitation. And also to try to better understand where things stood for the Jewish students and figure out ways that we had not sufficiently met their needs. I also think it's important to note that many Jewish undergraduate students who had been unaware or vaguely aware of the initial bylaws became very nervous and concerned in ways that they had not been before about Jewish life on campus. So the impact of the article was also to create a great deal more anxiety and fear. And when many students on campus despite the fact that Jewish life on campus generally speaking, I think is very robust and in many ways thriving in terms of the success of pillow and student kebab and the number of student clubs and studies in Israel studies. So that's sort of a rough timeline. Sorry, anything to add there. I think I'll just add the way I felt when I found out what had happened. It was I arrived at the library Monday morning, first day of school and sat down and 5 minutes into reading for class. I got a text message from my friend screenshotting. The fact that the women of Berkeley law organization had passed this by law. And I think it was a mix of heartbreaking and frustrating. I was heartbroken because I spoke to a lot of people on these boards after this happened and they acknowledged that they themselves didn't really know much about this issue and wanted to be supportive to their Palestinian classmates, which is incredibly important. And I so support that, but it was heartbreaking to me that we're at a place where people think that this is how you do that, which is just an indication of a lot of misinformation. And for the last decade, almost I've been worried about social media and it's especially ramped up in the last 5 years and how information is spread and shared. And I think particularly with this issue, there's a lot of misinformation and this was like a clear demonstration of that and the impact of that, that law students who theoretically are pretty informed of what's going on in the world and what issues are complex and which ones are not and how to handle those types of issues weren't even able to take a moment and recognize like, oh, maybe we should do a little bit of research or engage in this issue before we take such an extreme stance, which is what that bio law was. So I think that that was heartbreaking. And I was frustrated because the Jewish students weren't contacted about this. I would have hoped that they would have reached out or somebody would have reached out or I would have heard about it. And I didn't, and a lot of my Jewish friends didn't. And I think that was really frustrating that we weren't being included in this conversation, and it could have been a really great opportunity to engage before creating harm, and that didn't happen. But hopefully it's a learning experience

The 'Phallic Phobia' Argument

"Go to cuts. One 29, PhD from UC Berkeley. Laurel Westbrook talking about trans sports. Again, I'm picking on Berkeley just as an example, but I want to be very clear, University of Texas, Austin, university of Florida, university of North Carolina, Indiana University. They all have elements identical to this. It just so happens Berkeley is a little bit more brazen with this. It's an epicenter, but they're a little bit more cavalier. Andrew says a little. Yes, a little. Play cut one 29. This belief in the innate superiority and threat of male bodies account for why cisgender opposition to transgender inclusion, organizes predominantly around the presence of transgender women and not transgender men. This suggests that gender panics around transgender people might more accurately be termed penis panics as they are fueled by the terror of penises, particularly penises where they should not be. Because where they are in women's restrooms or locker rooms or sports teams is then dangerous to cisgender women and girls. I remember the first time I heard this argument, the first time I heard this argument, they said it a little differently. They said you have phallic phobia. I said, what? I mean, look, this last person doctor Laurel Westbrook. She should not be teaching a class. This is a very sick person. I mean that. She's a professor. And she says that this comes from phallic phobia, or it's because there are penises in places that they shouldn't be.

Charlie Unpacks UC Berkeley's New 'White Free Zones'

"Peter, from Berkeley, California, Charlie, have you seen the latest news out of Berkeley when I thought it couldn't get more insane here it is. I make Christian conservative and I have to exist in the shadows here. Please shine a light on the treachery and the demonic activity, strong wording in Berkeley, California. So not exactly sure which part of this he's talking about. I would imagine though he's talking about the anti white racism that exists at UC Berkeley. When I'm talking to people that I call normies, we use that term sometimes normie as a term to describe someone who is not exactly enlightened on all these topics. I will commonly and frequently cite black only spaces on college campuses. So for example, if I'm talking to somebody and they say, oh, yeah, come on. America is not really going in a direction that is troubling. We've been through this stuff before. Now, mind you, I get this sentiment far less than I used to. I mainly get it from people over the age of 50, not all people, but just mainly. And they're usually well to do their well off. They're well established. They're economically anchored. And they'll kind of challenge me and not in a disrespectful way. It's sometimes at a donor event or I'm speaking at some other person's event. We do a lot of speaking, and they'll say, come on, Charlie, don't you think you exaggerate some things? Don't you think, you know, getting into hyperbole, America's not going in the wrong direction as badly as you say it is. Maybe we have to cut taxes and do some things, but come on, Charlie, America is always exempt from pain and suffering is basically the essence of their argument. I get it a lot. I get it less, especially in the last year and a half, but I get it a lot. And the example that I usually use to counter the normies, if you will, is talking about black only dormitories. Spaces that exist on college campuses where whites are not allowed. In one 42, Tucker starts off and he starts articulating this, that at University of California Berkeley, there's a housing co op where only people of color are allowed, and it's banning whites from common areas unless they have consent from the tenants, white people are not allowed in our spaces.

"Hello everybody, a reminder that if you want to fight one way to do it is to help the alliance defending freedom, they bring more cases to the Supreme Court than any other conservative legal organization. And we have a banner up at them as prager dot com. I raise funds for a handful of groups a year. They're quite diligently chosen. These people do a lot of good work. And we're in a Civil War in this country. I've just been saying this for decades. So go to the banner and help. It's wrong not to help the fighters. I'm sorry to put it that way. It is. And it's not a matter of not having the money because it doesn't matter how much you give. It's just a matter of overcoming one's inertia. That's what it really is about. It's about as easily a do good thing as you can do. Anyway, the banner for the ABF is on my website then it's prager dot com. And you can help this wonderful legal organization. I just saw the latest ad for Virgin Atlantic. Where they celebrate all sorts of different expressions of life. So they have a woman with it's fleeting images of people. One of them is a woman that drew up in the CBN. See the woman who opens her mouth sticks her tongue out and it's filled with what he called him. Studs right. Tongue piercings, thank you. This, there is no notion on the left of higher civilization and lower civilization. That's what it amounts to in the final analysis. It began in the arts with the attack on artistic greatness. Art was considered completely subjective. You commercial is up for people to see when I can't play it now because most people are not watching. We could put the video of the video is on in my in the background, yes, while I'm talking. That's right. Right. So here's the point there is no end. He makes that point in the DEI video for PragerU. That I just looked at. That is coming out in a couple of weeks. There's no endgame. It's just shatter as many standards as possible. Express your individuality. There's a person in there who just stuck their fingers in their mouth and spread their cheeks. And that's part of the ad. Now you're expressing your individuality. That's what it's about. Of course, these people are not individual at all. They think like sheep. That's the joke. This is not individuality. This is screw middle class standards. That's what it is. Virgin Atlantic, if there's no pushback, this will spread to other airlines. So you must understand this. You have to push back. There are so many ways of flying across the Atlantic. Why bother with Virgin Atlantic? You know when it began in the airlines, I remember reporting it. It's one of the advantages of broadcasting a long time. When Alaska airlines ceased giving biblical quotes on their meals. There was a time some of you may not remember this. There was a time when you got a meal in coach. Is all coach meals are all coach meals gotten rid of domestically. Even transcontinental. You don't know? You fly LA, New York, you're flying 5 hours, 5 and a half hours sometimes. What is the actually New York LA going west takes longer? Because you're going against winds. So do you not get a meal? I don't know the answer. But in any event, when they gave meals out, and they still do in first class, of course. There was a little, I guess, ticket..

"Shows off inclusive uniform policy with trans cross dressing flight attendants. Virgin Atlantic airways launched an ad campaign Wednesday, two days ago. Highlighting the company's new uniform policy, allowing men to wear skirts, along with several other new transgender related policies. The company's new ads feature men in women's uniforms. And several people who appear to be transgender dancing, walking on a red carpet and giving interviews about the company's LGBT inclusivity. The airline also introduced optional pronoun pins employees can wear on their uniforms. Mandatory inclusivity training for employees. And a ticketing system update allowing people with gender neutral passports to use their gender codes and titles.

A Brief Education on Zionism

"You who don't know Zionism comes from the biblical word Zion. Referring to Jerusalem and or Israel. There were a vast number and still are Christian zionists. They would be bed through obviously. Zionist Zionism was merely the modern movement of the Jews back to their homeland, Zion, that's all it meant. There are many cities in America named Zion. I expect that they will be renamed. I can only believe that when people get a whiff of the fact that there are cities named after Zion, you can't get more zionist than Zion as the city of the name of your city. There is no difference between anti Zionism and anti semitism. The individual anti zionist may not hate all Jews. That's true. But the ideology is as anti Jewish as any anti semitic ideology. What it says is, of all the 200 plus nations in the world, only one is illegitimate, the Jewish state, the size of New Jersey. And then people are supposed to say, oh, that's not anti Jewish.

"If it wasn't so frightening, one might be able to recognize the irony in the sight of campus progressives, trying so hard to signal progressive virtue that they fall victim to a deeper moral shame. 9 different law student groups at the University of California at Berkeley school of law, my own Alma mater writes this author. Who is the author here? That's odd. Oh, Kenneth Marcus, okay? 9 different law student groups at the University of California at Berkeley school of law. My own Alma mater have begun this new academic year by amending bylaws to ensure that they will never invite any speakers that support Israel or Zionism. And these are not groups that represent only a small percentage of the student population. They include women of Berkeley law, Asian Pacific American law students association, Middle Eastern and North African law students association, law students of African descent, and the queer caucus. Berkeley's law, dean, Berkeley law's dean Erwin chemerinsky, a progressive, zionist, has observed that he himself would be banned under the standard. I was 90 as would 90% of his Jewish students. Yet Erwin chemerinsky continues to be a progressive. So this is another example, so let me make this clear. 9 different was it now it is what they said 9, yeah. 9 different law student groups at the University of California, Berkeley, law school, have amended by laws if you are a pro Israel or pro zionist speaker, you may not speak at the campus. And Jews continued to vote Democrat. Just as blacks continue to vote Democrat, no matter how much harm the Democratic Party does to black America. People do not vote rationally in very many cases.

And he pursued it again and the guy says, well, the effect of global warming on any given storm is not all that clear. So Don lemon pursued and said again, well, it is clear, storms are rougher today, stronger today because of global warming. He's telling the scientists that he knows that they are stronger today. There were years that we didn't even have a strong storm in the very, very recent past. It may have absolutely nothing to do with global warming. Let's put it this way.

Alphabetically, as they continue to be today alphabetically. So E would be the 5th storm of the season, and so on. And the feminists said this is clearly sexism. That hurricanes are named only after women. So now they alternate. Yeah, I'm well aware. Well aware. So now it's equality has been applied to hurricanes. You will be happy to know.

Professor Bruce Gilley on the Legacy of the British Empire

"Is a almost an incantation that exists on these campuses. Berkeley, I know that you're at Portland state, wherever I speak, they will always revert back to colonialist rule and the massacring of indigenous people, that is not the case of the British Empire. They might be conflating it with other empires. Maybe conquests or attempts of the Portuguese or the Spanish. But the British were very benign. In fact, they did everything they possibly could to institute the rule of law, habeas corpus, respect for the individual. Tell our audience about the legacy that the British Empire left and really helped develop the modern world as we know it. Yeah, so I mean, on the other question of violence, of course, what they do is they say, well, any form of colonialism is itself evil. Therefore, every time a British policeman in Kenya arrests a thief, that's genocidal because that's violence, right? So they don't make a distinction between justified and legitimate use of force like with a police or counter terrorist operations, which the British had a lot of, they had a lot of that because there were a lot of elite traditionalists who like to engage in slave rating and plundering and enslavement of others like the tribes and they didn't like the fact that the British imposed this civic institutions on these places because it basically deprived them of their traditional prerogatives. So what the British did in these places was not only create the civic institutions, the rule of law, the property rights that equal access to the political system, the expansion of rights, especially for minorities in women, right? They were the big beneficiaries here. But at a more fundamental level, the British created these nations. So when people say they colonized us, it's a joke because there was no us until the British came. There were a bunch of Internet signed slaving feuds going on, or you were actually in the hands of another alien empire that wasn't the white man, but it was much worse. So

They pretend that, oh, we only want to allow it for ten year old girls who were raped by Jeffrey Dahmer on top of the Washington Monument. But in fact, they wanted for everybody who happens to be like in law school or using this birth control. They want abortion for everyone paid for by the government in religious hospitals, stuff down your throat. But they're pretend. All right, so she was testifying about how. Protecting unborn life would have a negative impact on people who become pregnant. Who can become pregnant? And senator Josh hawley said, do you mean women? And she got really upset. She said, there are many types of people who can become pregnant. There are trans men, and there are gender queer, and she went through a whole list of made up nonsense terms that sound like Pokémon characters.

You've been the architect of some of the pivotal strategies that have been deployed by the Republicans over the last few decades. I'd like your assessment of where we are as a country today because it seems like we're living in a different America. Than the one we lived in, let's just say in the post Reagan era, even in the Clinton era, and that things have become more decayed more debilitated, more divided than ever. Do you agree with that assessment or do you have maybe a more a different take? Well, I think that the easiest analogy is that we've had a cancer of anti American left wingers. Which first really began to show up in the early 1960s with the work of people like marcuse at Berkeley, the student free speech movement of Berkeley. The weatherman, the black Panthers who openly said that they were out to assassinate police and actually killed 13 policemen. The fact that there are something like a 180 cities burning in the late 1960s, there were 2500 bombings in, I think, 1970, 71, and there was a lot of stuff out there. And then the country sort of reacted to it. And Nixon silent majority turned out to be real. But it was captured for me and two of theater whites amazing books on the making of the president. In the 1968 making the president, he has a chapter on the news media, which you could write today. He says, here's the role of The New York Times. Here's the old Washington Post. Here's how far to the left they are, et cetera. So it was already locked in in 68. And in 72, he wrote a sentence, which I thought was amazingly prescient. He said the problem of govern head and the reason he couldn't cut a deal. Was that, in the left, that liberal ideology had become a liberal theology.

Well, in either case to their child. You know, the term helicopter parent, it's hard to imagine aside from actual abuse, a more destructive idea than the helicopter parent. The task of a parent is to raise an adult and very few parents have thought about that, they thought their task is to shower their child with attention and love. And that's not how you make an adult, an adult meaning an independent human being.

He's the chairman and CEO of teton capital, and he's really a business legend on Wall Street and he has a fabulous new book out called America in perspective, defending the American Dream for the next generation. David sokol joins us right now. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you, Charlie. I appreciate you having me on. So tell us, why did you write the book, you know, trying to save the American Dream, that's quite a task. Yeah, you know, I was a rural lower income kid in my father, his parents were immigrants from Poland. And he always emphasized to us the American Dream. And the reason we're here, the reason we're in this wonderful country is that we're now Americans. And you have to decide what you want to do, but you're going to have to work for it. And I had that opportunity and through a lot of good fortune over the years was able to become a CEO in the early 80s and continue in the energy industry throughout my career. And we've really started losing sight of what's made America great all these years. And it's our foundation, our constitution, it's our foundation as we the people, as our founding fathers put together. And so Adam Brandon and I really felt that it was time these books not about us. I mean, there's a small percentage in there that just describes who we are, but it's really takes us through this capitalistic meritocracy called America. The self healing nation that was formed 246 years ago and how important it is. In fact, the American Dream is alive and well today. And in fact, America is that exceptional nation that we all know it is.

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the off to Tatum show. I got a video from LeBron de James. You know that basketball player that's probably the code is backed by a player and U.S. history outside of Michael Jordan, but that dude is the dumbest person when it comes to politics that I've ever heard. And Brittany griner is even dumber than he is. How are you going to go to another country playing with their laws? This ain't America. They ain't gonna slap you on the wrist. You're going to take it hashish or. And you think you're going to go to Russia and they gonna kiss your butt 'cause you black. Lady, you ain't in America. Now your bud in jail. I want y'all to listen to what LeBron James said because I don't respect him enough to call him LeBron anymore. LeBron de James, listen to what he said and just know that he apologized after he said what he about to say wrote a clip. White people are collecting black art. Have you had to explain that ever to collectors? It's not the responsibility of black folks to use this. I don't think this LeBron James. She is in Russia. She's been there over a 110 days. Now how can she feel like America has her back? I would be feeling like do I even want to go back to America? I'm not saying you will be twice as good to get half as much. I always didn't like that team. So I said, I just want to be twice as good because I want to be trusted. As a forward you take risks all the time. If you're not. So I think we are at the clip. I think it's some other players that are talking in there, but however, LeBron, you heard him say, why would he even want to come back to America? Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?

Sen. Josh Hawley Accused of Transphobic Questioning

"Welcome back to the outside and show ladies and gentlemen, I want to get back to congressman Holly and his interview with the devil about him being transferred for simply asking questions. Of clarity in a world of foolery wrote a clip. I just want to clear one thing up. Professor bridges, you said several times, you've used a phrase I want to make sure I understand what you mean by you referred to people with a capacity for pregnancy. Would that be women? Many women, cis women have the capacity for pregnancy, many cis women do not have the capacity for pregnancy. There are also trans men who are capable of pregnancy as well as non binary people who are capable of pregnancy. So this isn't really a women's rights issue. We can recognize that this impacts women while also recognizing that it impacts other groups. Those things are not mutually exclusive senator Holly. Oh, so your view is, is that the core of this right then is about what? So I want to recognize that your line of questioning is transphobic. And it opens up trans people to violence by not recognizing them. Wow, you're saying that I'm opening up people to violence by asking whether or not women are the folks who can have pregnancies. So I want to note that one out of 5 transgender persons have attempted suicide. So I think it's important. Because of my line of questioning. So we can't talk about it because denying that trans people exist and pretending not to know that they exist. I'm denying that trans people exist by asking. Are you about women? Are you? Having pregnancies? Do you believe that men can get pregnant? No, I don't think. So you were not going to trans people. And that leads to violence. Is this how you run your classroom or students allowed to question more? They also treated like this. They're told that they're opening up people to violence. We have a good question. My class, you should join. You might learn a lot. Wow, I would learn a lot. I've learned a lot. I know. Absolutely. Extraordinary.

"We'd like to see them do an honest and transparent environmental impact report on the impact of the campus growth and propose legally enforceable mitigation package on these impacts that makes a difference in the community for both the students and the people who live in the community. So as a lawsuit that say Berkeley's neighborhoods filed continues in the courts, Berkeley, the city and Berkeley to school, they'd announced plans for interim and long-term housing solutions for students at a community park. What are they? Yeah, this project is a real example of UC Berkeley working collaboratively with the city and nonprofits to provide housing. And so what they have done is come to an agreement to build both student housing about a thousand units and permanent support of housing for the formerly unhoused at low income community members, they'll get about a hundred units of not only housing, but also services, mental health services, and different wellness services. And so this is really a way that they are trying to resolve all of these various conflicts and tensions and also address the needs in the community for housing. And this is happening at the iconic people's park, which has a huge history of being the center of free speech rights and activism. I really want to see how this all plays out. I think it's a positive that they're making an effort to house the homeless, but they're only putting them in a hotel for like 18 months. And that's not a solution. That's like a short term solution to get them out of the way. What I didn't see in the proposal was how they plan to find housing permanent housing.

Teresa, it's like your damned if you do, damned if you don't for colleges and housing, let students run off campus, town residents get mad. Build more student dorms and residents still get mad. So do you see more lawsuits like the one in Berkeley happening in other college towns? You know, it all depends on the campus and the community and the building plans. So for instance, UCLA has gone on a recent housing construction spree, but they haven't faced litigation because the neighbors like the fact that they are building these campus housing units on campus as a result it's lessening traffic. It's lessening the need for parking. It's lessening pollution because students who live on campus don't need cars. On the other hand, at UC Santa Cruz, there is litigation because the campus wants to build a student family housing unit on a meadow that environmentalists are challenging because they want to keep that meadow open. So again, there are some campuses that are not facing litigation and others that are. I think there's a strong community interest in campus is building housing and even Phil bacha voice group has made several proposals for sites that they think would work. There's an ideal site that's a decrepit 1950s parking deck with tennis courts on top. On all four sides is surrounded by student housing. And when I raised the wall, this site would be shovel ready in a month because all they have to do is tear down the parking garage. I was told by the vice Chancellor that, well, we can't start building there because we don't know how we're going to replace the parking. And here's a university that's claiming that all this development is like greenhouse gas neutral. And yet they're not putting housing on parking lots because they're concerned about fewer people being able to drive to the campus. Phil also said in his statement that he and his group want to settle the lawsuit that they filed against UC Berkeley, what is he asking for and what's the likelihood of a settlement like what he wants to happen? Well, Phil's group wants a legally binding agreement to tie enrollment growth to the production of student housing. UC Berkeley hasn't agreed to do so. Other campuses like UC Davis have managed to come to agreement with their communities. But the legislation that the governor signed this week removes the requirement that campuses have to consider the impact of enrollment in their environmental reviews and consider instead the broader group of campus population, which includes faculty and staff. This was a deliberate effort to remove the grounds for litigation over student enrollment. So whether fills demands will be met is.

"The school's happy thanks to the lawmakers helping them out, but the neighborhood group that filed the original lawsuit against UC Berkeley, those problems are still going to persist between them in the school. Do you think a more significant student enrollment cap would have solved any of those big long-standing issues? Well, I think everyone, including the Berkeley community group, agrees that it's a good idea to enroll as many California students as possible. And give them a shot at college. And the issue is really providing enough affordable campus housing for them. There has been a huge shortage statewide of housing for college students, not only in the UC system, but also the Cal state system. And finally, the legislature is starting to step in in a pretty major way. They are providing $2 billion in housing grants this year. And there's pending legislation right now to also offer a $5 billion zero interest revolving fund that will help campuses save a lot of money on debt service so they can funnel that money instead into more campus housing. Theresa last fall, you wrote about California college students who are actually living in their vans because of the housing crunch. So it's definitely not just quote townies who are suffering because of our state's lack of adequate affordable housing. Well, that's right. At the end of the day, it is the students who are suffering the most. I was at UC Santa Barbara last year. And I interviewed students who were living in motels. And one student Chris hodgkins, who was actually living in his van, and he had to suffer a leaky rough and power outages that shut down his refrigerator for 6 weeks, and of course he had to shower or toilet. UC Santa Barbara is trying to address that. But they're proposed to build a 4500 bed mega dorm with tiny rooms and no windows has sparked national outrage and it's being dissed as dorm Zilla. So you know, there's no easy answers here. Yeah, that concern is really weighing on students, some of the students that you talk to even worried about probably having to do remote learning just because of that on campus capacity. I think one of my main concerns.

"The most applied to universities in the entire United States. I applied for biology for all my UCs. I applied to UC Berkeley for computer science. It's my top choice school. This ultimately where I want to go. But the city of Berkeley is also emblematic of our nationwide housing crisis. Simply put, there are too few houses available to buy, and those on the market are too expensive. Housing supply was limited even before the pandemic began in 2020. Which is why residents and the university have been locked in a battle over enrollment numbers. The legal fight is just the latest iteration of an eternal struggle tension between residency students and the perpetual beef over who matters more in college towns. The townies or the gowns. I'm Gustav ariano. You're listening to the times, daily news from the LA times. It's Friday, march 18th, 2022. Today, the battle over Berkeley and the future growth of its iconic school, and what that means for college towns everywhere. Teresa watanabe covers higher education for Los Angeles Times, and she's been covering this still developing story. Teresa, welcome to the times. Thanks for having me. Okay, so town and gown, it's not a plot point out of whatever your favorite college film is animal House or old school or neighbors with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. The tension between residents and college students is real, but it rarely gets into lawsuits like what's happening in Berkeley. So what's that lawsuit about and who filed it? Yeah, well, to sum up four years of litigation in a couple of sentences, the legal side of Berkeley really involves the question as to whether Berkeley adequately reviewed the impact of enrollment growth on the surrounding neighborhoods, noise, homelessness, housing displacement, and Berkeley, since 2005 said that it was going to add about 33,450 more students. But by 2017, a local neighborhood group called save Berkeley's neighborhoods learned that they had actually enrolled 30% more and so they sued to force Berkeley to assess the impact of adding a 11,000 more students than they had projected. So Berkeley did conduct a review and then they found that there was no impact. And so the community group, along with the city of Berkeley, then filed another lawsuit in 2019, asking the judge to order Berkeley to conduct another review. And in the meanwhile, they were told to freeze enrollment until they had finished that review. So the litigation was spearheaded by Phil bacho and his group save Berkeley's neighborhoods. Family homes that were coming on the market were being converted into what are called mini dorms. So they were, you know, one of the students is sharing a 110 ft² room with another person. And we really felt that the university needed to take responsibility for building housing. So that ruling that the judge made, how did UC Berkeley initially respond to it? Well, they basically freaked out about a 150,000 applicants by announcing that they were going to have to cut their incoming fall class by about one third or 3050 students. And it's tough enough to get into Berkeley. Acceptance rate is only 14.5%. So when Berkeley announced they were going to make this massive cut, it just really put students and families on edge. UC Berkeley first sent out an email to all of their applicants. And when I got that email, I was really scared. I talked to a few college seniors in the LA area like Christina Sanchez. At first it was like, notice about admissions. And so I thought, oh, maybe they really decisions early. But when I started reading the email further and they started saying on how there would have to cut down like admission by a pretty large percentage. I was pretty nervous. There was a lot of fear that was a lot of frustration of disbelief. People were shocked. The students said they were shocked when they heard the news. And there was also a sense of it being very unfair because they had worked so hard for so long to try to get the good grades in order to qualify for Berkeley and then to see this happen through no fault of their own, really hit a lot of the students hard. Eric schip McCarthy, Tyler tran and Nicholas tran told me how nerve racking it was for them. The first thing I came was probably fear a lot of fear about ultimately. What are my backup options? If I don't get in. Obviously that was always kept in mind, but all of a sudden that fear grew a little more rampant because all of a sudden the cutting was like almost a third of freshman undergraduate emissions, so we're just like, you know, like, wow, that's very scary. Just to think about, right? I really thought that I didn't have a chance to get in because of the enrollment drops. 'cause I know computer scientists are really impacted major there, so I knew it would be hard to get in with my major originally, so dropping a bunch of admissions would make it a lot harder. I was just kind of worried about my odds of getting in or not. Yeah, same thing for me. Some of our friends actually got the regents, scholarship offer, so they got theirs early. And then we found out around the same time that they were going to drop 5000 students. So I thought, you know, if they had already accepted this number of kids, and then they're rejecting that number, how many spots are there? So I just, I didn't really think of UC Berkeley as an option after that. I'm sure the save Berkeley neighborhoods group was ecstatic with all these decisions going in their favor. They were very happy and they felt really justified because Phil buck avoy and his group feels that they also have been unfairly targeted as nimbys and people trying to prevent these hardworking deserving students from getting an education. They made a huge public relations effort to characterize this as people trying to deny students, admission to the university, when in fact what the issue was about the universities, not just its failure to provide housing. They haven't even started working on the environmental analysis.

Welcome back to fast money. Check out shares of berkeley lights plunging wapping eleven percent today adding to yesterday's nineteen percent. Drop this after activists. Short short-sight short seller firm a scorpion capital yesterday published a scathing note on the biotech company. Calling it it publicly traded scam and a quote unquote raging dumpster fire with a defective flagship product and no ability to survive. Berkeley lights is also by the way the fortieth largest holding in kathy woods flagship arc innovation. Etf joining us now is one of the authors of that report. Scorpion capital founder cure cologne. Care great to have you back with us thank you. It sounds like a lot of this. Report is based on interviews with with former employees. Can you can you. How do we know that these boys aren't disgruntled and that they have the latest information with the company if they no longer work there so the report is partly based on interviews omer voice but actually the report melissa is. We talked to fourteen berkeley lights largest customers. The company sells a laboratory instrument. It's used for screening sells. The use case is drugged customers. A large pharmaceutical and biotech company. So you know the most important thing to verifies part of the research customers of the product so we talked about seven ex employees and we talked working. Large us mercy's rinky-dink customers. We talk ancient. Dr bristol-myers we talk to takeda. The novartis you can just go down. The list and the feedback from fourteen customers was extremely negative. They told us at the product which is overpriced to begin with a shocking two million dollars. The product basically doesn't work. It doesn't do what it reports to do And in many cases they've all their even use it after spinning which is extremely damning information and that was actually confirmed by the former poise that we talked to and very careful to spleen for the former employees that we speak with occasionally you have always but we talked to former executives excuted credible people. We verify information by talking to many different ex employees and in this case the information was very consistent from employees from customers very confident that the findings are correct speculation. What strikes me is that you know you've talked all these major customers. You're basically saying that. Some of the largest pharma and biotech companies out. There got fleeced by this company. They got taken that they paid for product that that doesn't work. They paid lots of money. And there's no recourse. You haven't heard anything about it. They haven't gone back to the company. Said we want to refund. I mean they they just bought. It doesn't work stick in the closet and move on. That's exactly what happened. We actually did get so yet. They're stand these. Large firms do companies or a great company with one hundred billion dollars worth of kathy's kevin infinite budget you have a company with prominent venture capitalists behind you. Get the by the promise of the new technology. If you think of product and help you develop a drug bit. Dr ten billion dollars in sales what he got. You spent two million dollars. You got you by machine. You know some executive got second division and the scientists and the user day realized. That actually doesn't do what it's supposed to do. Some of interesting feedback that we got was exactly that kind of dynamic where there's somebody high level of the company seduced by promises technology of the people that actually have to use it resist using it. It's guy on thank you. I was just gonna say in some cases our customers that we actually did return the and one of the questions that we actually asked all fourteen because we interviewed. And what would you send the product back if you could it a number of actually said that they would they used to bother. They didn't get the money back yet. It's interesting and i'm not looking to necessarily comment but bt apparently spoke to grunfeld customers there actually is such a thing as you know and they reiterated. I think a sixty five dollars price target. Can you speak to that because it clearly flies into face of some of the things. You're saying i'm not suggesting you're wrong or they're right. It's just interesting that on the same day. They make pretty much the opposite comments. I i haven't seen the report. So i don't know which customers dave two hundred hundred large customers small customers careful and if you look at the customer testimonials page on lights website. It's a huge red flag because they only lists or customers in to those customers look like they're too small of the evening able to afford a two million products that we think they've got the product for free so then they go out and they say positive things of those four customers. Only one of those apps even cynical and.

What are some of the sort of next things that you were going to. Really focused on Yeah so in the short term. We are hoping to make a number of improvements on our climate side. We are actually right now. We already have. When is the highest resolution global temperature fields at one degree We are hoping to push nats resolution significantly to provide feiment historical climate data that is downscale to understanding the city and the state region more so as greater houston utility to people who are looking at the low for mutual facts. We're also Communication effort that never laid looks at those local original tax going forward Sagawa mentioned something about this sort of one degree in downscaling for our listeners. So many of the climate data and climate models or out cutting information at large will we call and meteorology and climate spatial resolution. So you might have data every one degree of latitude or so. There are so forth. So that's about one hundred and eleven kilometers in size so you basically have a box about one hundred eleven kilometers. But if you're trying. To give policymakers information what's on what's happening in fulton county the county. That houses atlanta georgia. Well that county is much smaller than that. Seven hundred eleven grid box that we have climate model so people like dr wrote a and others are thinking about mentioning these downscaling techniques in their statistical dynamical until a lot of mathematics. Involved to try to get that information down to usable scales of communities and census tracks in counties and so forth. Have you found that to be a tough problem So i think you know there's different degrees of top. So it is a computational intensive problem. Y'all move the data to a small scale on understand the structure of it requires a lot of computing power. If i would not say it is a conceptually tough thing. We understand what needs to be done. But the other and there's a number of details in boston after go into it. But also a lot of computational our has to be devoted to it if you wanna get that small scale where people live. I agree and i think it's one of the big big frontier still left. And i'm glad to see your group tackling last sort of substantive question for units of big wind. But i consider you an expert. Or i consider you an ear that congress might or call on to testify before them and so forth of the president might call and say what's what what do you think so if you had sort of a magic one and you you have already heard sort of where you are on. Sort of climate urgency. You don't think it's the end of the world for sure. What's the next great sort of thing that we need either. From a scientific perspective or policy perspective in other words if you could put all your eggs in one basket we many baskets but if you could put all your eggs in one policy basket recommendation science basket recommendation. What would it be at this time. Don't ask questions. I don't that's i love. I love the challenge. Our guest now. We have really awesome experts and again. There's no right around there. I'm just kinda curious. What what do you think we need right now. So i would say that we know have known for a number of years. The basic outline of what we need to do. The science is clear that we need to be reducing fossil fuel emissions as quickly as. It's practical while also preserving human life while bidding those sorts of things so we really need to be aligning our policies with that goal so that needs doing things like ending the development of new oil and gas sites new coal mines. That means you know. Fostering the adoption of electric vehicles do pretty plus offices that make it easier for people to switch away from natural gas in their home. Six support for people who will be losing their jobs if we away from fossil fuels Hold baskets get those things in support.

"The weather geeks. Podcast i'm dr marshall shepherd from the university of georgia and i'm speaking we're dr robert roadway about berkeley earth very fascinating organization and by the way. Do not follow dr rodeo on twitter. I highly urged that. He's a really interesting follow. Is someone that. I follow and rely on and keep in my favorites list on climate. Because he he Puts out some brilliant. Did information. And i want to shift a little bit because one of the things that i've really kind of identified with a more contemporary times is the the what you're doing to educate the public policy makers and so forth about climate change. You've created a lot of visualizations. You talk passionately about this. One of the things that really has of interest to me is some analysis that you've been doing on of climate china's scientists In their presence in social media. How often they're tapped by policy makers and southward tell us how all of that got started. So i will confess. I liked twitter. I i do you actually it's got. It's dark corners and annoy. But i think it's a net good. Yeah you know. It's a way to talk to people in particular. Unlike a lot of chattels it can be interactive. Could talk to you. Say something people talk back. could start a conversation. That's really useful if you're tried to educate people on a topic such as cyber science You have the question about how the climate scientists networks of new things so i was actually set out to understand for by sells better. Who are the climate scientists. What is this to the on twitter. Like so i took some time Right simple scripts does that you identify the scientists do away followers. They do follow who are jitants. Bet works structure events also. Do things like understands. Journalists are following climate scientists. What politicians and you know it's it's informative. Sunlight boasts broadcast media opportunity to see who at what people are interested by looking at through their following. So for example you could find. The witch politicians are fall climate major climate scientists. That's a really strong advocate of those are politicians think climate scientists orchards issue. I understand this drought recommended a little bit. It's so what so what are and again. I know that. I've appeared in some of your your analysis in support. Salt will acknowledge that. Right off the bat but i'm sort of low on the totem pole. Compared to some people you offer talk about real. I mean a little bit. Who are some of the top climate scientists. That people are following particularly policymakers. Because i i know for example I testify before the house. Science committee twenty nineteen and one of the staffers explicitly mentioned. You know i follow you all the time on twitter and some. We thought you'd be someone. Good to testify so i know firsthand that you our science through social media not just do scientific journals as reaching people but who are some of the people you find that people go to and why are they effective. So they're the also the top scientists on twitter People like kathryn. Hey how was a climate scientist out of texas has made a career of coffee in particular to the The religious communities l. reaching out as well as exceptionally useful climate science There's also people like by command. Who is a much more. Polarizing figure that say catherine heyhoe somewhat different community but there's also a number of people night gay let's see a shit Listed of his twitter side. What's your twitter. Because i know you have a lot of information on your twitter you can find some of your. My twitter handle is our a rotate so r. a. r. o. Hd yeah and. He's got a lot of information there. I just find it interesting because you you. You actually have kind of have a scientific methodology for for this type of mouses. So this is not just someone sort of poking around. And saying oh he follows. There's a real. I mean i'm curious have have you published a out about publishing his I haven't Occasionally think y'all maybe this is upstate where it's writing up but it's sort of you know the people who are most interested are So it started speaking. You're writing for that. Community is where. I focused mostly do Yeah i think. It's interesting though. I actually just from putting on my scientists hat and professor at uga. I do think. There's some scholars scholarly interest there. Some of the sort of geoscience education or more public outreach. Type journals i i would i would encourage you because i think what you're doing is valuable but i also think it's rigorous i think it's. It's remorse enough that it could be published vary very much wanted the rigorous understanding who are for example who are the most followed. The most neutrally The politicians list do so. When i constructed these various lists. I wanted it to be rigorous in part. Because i wanted to make sure i wasn't missing no missing the diversity i want to. You don't want to just come up with a list of all white professors. We want to actually know. What is this community Sort of objective way. That's interesting because i recently saw a few months back a list of some magazine or some organization put out the top whatever hundred climate scientists and i think it did lack diversity. I think it did lack. Not only racial diversity but age diversity and disciplined diversity. I it was. And i dug into. I'm assigned to and i was curious. About what their criteria are in. It's things like cited work. Citations published works and so forth and so that is going to inherently biased towards people that have been in the academic environment a bit longer and maybe have a longer paper trail. When i know for a fact that people can cobb And i on elizabeth johnson. Who probably weren't on that list but are highly impactful climate scientists today. What you talks on that. I absolutely agree. There's a lot of young when you look at scientists. Wake metrics like the list. Know i believe referring to they offer Look taub as take g reformulated over career. Joe someone at business. Fifty years rates highlighted. but that's not necessarily. The person is paid the most impactful at the bullets at we. As a scientific community needs metric stats figure out was the are person now. Not just in the past. I think twitter's of Platform but it has a very communications oriented platform for people who want to be the business getting science identify fi people who they people who are relatively young who have less Out built a following of popular public Seru good and information. I know that something is big important for me. I mean i think we have to be scientists. Extend beyond the ivory tower otherwise people will fill gaps that we leave behind. We aren't there you know. A big part of my scholarship is publishing and doing the pure view science. And all of those things. I've got all those metrics but it's important to engage in so i completely agree with you on twitter. I think it's a net good. If you can filter through all the chaff up one quick question about your list do any people Appear high on your list. That i don't wanna say you're skeptic or contrarian but sort of perhaps lean a further away from the michael mann's and katherine hayles and marshall shepherd. The world in terms are always see climate change..

"Methods we add a bunch more data we of these holes in the top rations and concerns. I do still get answer. Which is very close to what the other groups is done in the past. And that's comforting. And i think what you illustrate talk about something that naomi arrests his talk about in her book or in some of her writings pass of conciliates this idea of approaching problems from different perspectives. Different methodology different data sources. That still arriving at similar conclusions. And that's a string of science. Y'all you often hear people talk about consensus. But i also like to talk about conciliates and i think your group. Berkeley earth really embodies this idea of approaching beans from a different perspective You know we all might go to the grocery store from a different route. We all get to the same place. And i think that's kind of what you didn't was there a moment for you are wow. I didn't expect that moment as you as you lead the development of berkeley's Temperature analysis. I believe in historical climate along the way. Where the moment for you. So you ha moment Not i don't think there was a bubba. Edgeware just all jailed together for me but there were a number of stepping stones. Along the way y'all try to realize for example the earth is a big place but the weather domains are still somewhat large. There is a weather system is not reading on what person it's ready. God cities states. That's one of the things that allows you to average disbar temperature network so good good idea of what's going on because you don't have the temperature benjamin everywhere i there's a number of understandings like that that come along the way understanding how you can identify biases from changing metrics in urban heat. Islands by comparing stations were versus urban or concurring stations different environments and the eldest number of figuring out as we went. Make sure we understood whether what's really going on.

"Climate and choir scientist to process. A lot of data and robert is one of the key people helping to do that. We'll talk about how berkeley earth is working to educate people about climate change and how they hope to build partnership with environmental and industry groups around the world. Robert thank you for joining us on the weather. Geeks spot guests great to be here. So there's a question i ask every guest. You told me you hadn't heard the podcast before. So you're going to be caught blindsided by this but i always ask. How did you become weather eke or in this case a climate eek. I've actually always been interested in climates going back to high school. I guess You know even way back then. Y'all i not quite that old old adopted. It's been a while There was still talking about climate. Change shows nineteen ninety You know i i. B c report of the relatively early discussions. And i thought it was important issue and i was concerned that i kept my eye on. It's a long time. They had this long divergence where i went to did a specific speech day and i studied the brian Eventually came back to climate science. As well as the most important things i could spend my time on and to let me give you a little background dr road a he has. He's lead scientists at berkeley earth. He has a in theoretical physics from university of cal berkeley so clearly someone that knows his stuff So i really should've asked how he became a phys geek. I mean as a kid. You really into physics in experimentation and all sure your little read books about einstein about relatively these things always fascinating because you get this sort of deep understanding of how the world works how. Things are connected. What are the mechanisms. That was loved. Understand that kind of thing and my awesome research team. Our producers are whether geeks produces bay they dig deep on our guest So they tell me that you're early worked involved ice core data studying the presence of microbial life in glad glacial ice. Tell us what that was about. Why to board. Yeah so my phd. Work i built a a built. Fluorescence spectrometer to dust and microbial life. Nice course so we would scan Chunks of ice collected from greenland or darpa and identify individual microbes With this laser setup. We have yeah. We weren't usually tied to what china microbe was that we were trying to tell how common they work. And that tells us something about microbial activity deposition and what's really going on the ice the worth of interesting things there for example you'd think of these ice cores is very static dead days not very stable but you get down to the bottom of their actually are microbial communities that live near the base. The ice genio consume smaller guy molecules. Introduce things into the ice. And you'll create confounding artifacts But yeah i worked on that for a number of years it could work at the ice. Core lab in the dark room was like us by laser setup. Decided i no longer want to work. It called dark place all the time. Switch to working side at work with the computers. The lasers just a just as lebanon geeks listeners Your doctor wrote a talk about ice cores. Which are a class of what caught proxy climate data sets their ways that we can often hear people say well. How do you know the climate was one hundred thousand years ago or perhaps a hundred thousand years ago. We have various proxy records that we use like ice cores. Tree rings coral. They're all kinds of records trapped in these things that we can do very sophisticated analysis ranging isotopic analysis and so forth. So i want what the listeners to know that when climate scientists are talking about past climates. They're not just sort of waving their hands These proxy data sets of proven to be quite valuable. If you think back to the day after tomorrow movie which many of us have seen that movie starts with scientists down. I believe in arctic and they're drilling for ice cores so Thank you for bringing that up. I want to shift the discussion now to berkeley earth. Now i remember this when this all came about and i want you to tell us the history of it because i don't remember the details but i do remember. There was a group that you know maybe start off outlook the word. Skeptical or denial lists or contrary that there was a group that was somewhat doubtful of some of the science that was coming out global warming or climate change and stood up this organization in some fashion. But i don't know the details. Just fill in the gaps in the origins of berkeley earth and what role climate climate-sceptics played in shaping it. So if you think back about a decade ago There was events that became known as climate gays when there was this release of emails from uk Met office in related organizations. That some people set a show evidence of manipulation of the data and you know raised never skeptics to be very concerned that the state has said has been dictated by upbeat reliable. And that sort of was the impetus for berkeley earth. Basically a number of people who had lifted the skeptical concerns at took them seriously said. We need to look at this. We need to do a detail. Take a fresh take. Make sure that the uncertainties rides the analysis is right. That there's not an aide fucking funny business doing on because this is so important to what about you climate. So that was sort of motivation. And then rich miller a who's a berkeley physics professor Helped organize a group of us myself. Included several other berkley faculty to take a fresh look at climate data at that time I'd build a new analysis. Susie somewhat different methods more data trying to address as many of the concerns of the climate sceptics had as possible We did wide to make sure we weren't selecting biasing. Our data sample might make sure we have if there were Thailand's or something like that. That we took into consideration so there was a that's where it began and ended joe has As aware of how raised by for both the gates foundation at the brother's the five at project. Oh wow that that is very unique interesting positioning though because clearly a unifies that someone saw us an honest broker. Yeah the only with a a legitimate concern that there was something wrong We didn't know what the answer big going so we started out. We have concluded that everything is fine or consider. There's some serious era we were. Just follow the date at stewart. Let's now we're talking with dr robert roadway from berkeley earth fascinating discussion and it was fascinating. History he just gave them to read something from your website says. Global warming is the defining environmental challenge of our time. The need for quality unbiased scientific information about global warming could not be more urgent yet. There are few sources of historic global temperature records the foundation underlying all global warming analysis. I think those are pretty powerful statement. what was your own personal perspective coming in but you are. Did you really try to come into this. Very sort of sort of unfettered or unbiased in any way I mean. I would say that i did want to very much all the data and understand what is concerns where the skeptics. Now so at the time. I read a number of the skeptical commentaries even some of the blogs. And things like this before you go. Let me just synthesize. Because that's a key point. You read some of the skeptic commentary in blogs but i think the consensus literature that time was still sort of all the sort of page of global warming happening climate change. There certainly are papers from sort of containers kept taking train them from mc skeptics basis in the peer reviewed literature. But would you read much of what you were reading at bit. Time was in the greater. Yeah i would agree. That a lot of it was not Was blog comments and other things at. Yeah i also read a lot of the Understand what people were doing at audi insisting algorithms put together by the concerns whether known bias issues off of they could halycon address on these things more thoroughly. But like i said i also wanted to understand. What were ya'll skeptical concerns that were coming from the the more intellectual the oriented skeptics people who had coaching arguments about their concerns. Try to address some of them and help said at the end of the day we wants to be able to move the arguments forward I think berkeley earth has attributed to that ultimately we found that the analysis that are group's done was pretty good that theology yield air understand global warming now seems to be pretty accurate even be improved the still methods we add a bunch more data we of these holes in the top rations and concerns. I do still get answer. Which is very close to what the other groups is done in the past. And that's comforting.

"Luckily for us we live in berkeley california where you can find black women doctor's birthday. Yeah yeah yes that berkeley for doctors. Berkeley is like a sleepy college town. And i like living there because it's got all the stuff because it's a college but it's also a place to relax. At least it was that until the election kicked up into high gear and then it became this place that like every few weeks to all right would show up and start fights in the streets of berkeley if you don't know about the alright. I'm sure mostly do but if anybody who's here who doesn't know let me explain. The alright is a bunch of white dudes how to explain this. They wish they were a little bit taller. They wish they were ballers girl they would call her. That's the best way down to the bottom line. It so every few weeks the alright but show up in berkeley in start fights and people in the media which is hard for me. Because i work in the media would be like berkeley i. It's the outright. Merkley is fighting the alright in the streets look at berkeley fighting with i live in berkeley. Birth is not fighting the outright in the streets. Now here's how it works. The alright puts out flyers. They get online create graphics tweet and facebook about that. They're going to have a fight in berkeley on like a saturday. And then what happens. Is that in the surrounding area. Berkley people who like the fight or like you wanna find. Berkeley's weekend sure. I'd like to fight this weekend. What's it about. I don't give a shit. I wanna hit somebody and they show up and they fight in the streets in the media goes berkeley versus the alright. The alright is fighting in the streets. Berkeley not affected the residents of berkeley. When the ratio that the first time this other residents of berkeley were affected it cancelled the farmers market. Berkeley was affected. There was white women in yoga pants standing at the fight. Go supposed to get my kale. What am i supposed to get it from whole foods. Goddamn refugee somali. is that what you carrying. Yoga mats wrapped in plastic. Never been used so then. Yeah the media is like it's berkeley versus the outright. And then what happens is that all these d- list right wing. Celebrity showed up in berkeley. To take advantage of the moments. They could get some press and so then you got like ann. Coulter and milo yiannopoulos showing up and they had speeches at berkeley but they didn't give speeches because when they showed up the outright showed up and there's fights in the streets and the police like we can't have this. This is not safe for our students or are going to get the class speeches were cancelled and then ann coulter milo yiannopoulos and all the people on the on the right or like berkeley's anti-free-speech berkeley doesn't like free speech. No i live in berkeley earthliest. Fine with free speech we love freedom of expression were anti bullshit. all right. we're fans of free speech. We don't have to agree with what you say or what you do. There's a naked guy who for years just walked around berkeley everybody's like there's the naked guy anyway. Different people from different sides of the political aisle in the culture. We're like five with it. They'd be women in burqas with their kids going to school honey. The naked guy needs to get to work. We have to get out of his way. They were not mad. He's like. I gotta be naked in the park by ten thirty. As long as you don't get any nakedness on me have had it's a thing. We're not anti free speech rate. I bullshit man you know. And that's why. I hate the whole the fake argument about free speech. No you have the freedom of speech but you don't have is the freedom of consequences from that speech saying say whatever you wanna say whatever you want to say. Your free speech causes riots. You have to deal with the consequences of that if everywhere you go people right after you speak. Guess what you got to deal with that. If everywhere i did comedy arrived broke out. We wouldn't be here right now. We we'd be on youtube with this. There'd be many less people here because they wouldn't want to get caught up in a riot. Yeah just ridiculous. I'll give you an example of being responsible for your free speech for years. The honorable minister louis farrakhan used to travel the country giving speeches. Many people thought it was a hate speech. But what did the honorable minister. Louis farrakhan do. He traveled with security so that when he gave a speech the fruit of islam would be outside wanting people on the way in. They would line the walls. It'd be behind him on the stage. So the minister farrakhan felt safe so the audience felt safe so the surrounding community felt safe because he understood he had to deal with the consequences of his free speech. So what i'm saying. Is ann coulter in my apples. If you wanna walk around spewing hate speech then hire the nation of islam. That's all if you do. Please let me fill it for my next. Tv show. i wouldn't even have to be put ann. Coulter and milo yiannopoulos fifteen passenger van with the nation of islam just driving around the country. The sexual tension would be amazing.
