Trump Tweets Threat of Fed Funding Cut For Berkeley 

Funny, but I can only imagine that if a school had denied a ___insert protected group here___ speaker that the same people crying about this would be begging for the same reaction lest the federal government not be doing enough to stop hate.

The simple fact is a university is supposed to be a place for free and open exchange of ideas.  If you silence people, you’re not allowing open discussion.  You can do that, but the entire country shouldn’t have to pay for you to do that.  Do it on your own dime.

(In all honesty, I don’t think ANY college should get ANY federal money of ANY kind, but that’s a topic for another day)
