Scott Adams, creator of the popular comic strip Dilbert, received his MBA from UC Berkeley and has been a major donor ever since, both in money and time. He’s a strange guy to say the least but after seeing what happened to Milo, he had this to say.
He also took to his blog to elaborate on the issue. Looks like squelching freedom of speech doesn’t pay – literally in this case.
Here’s the best article you are likely to read about the absurdity of calling ANY American president Hitler. This is the sort of persuasion (sprinkled with facts) that can dissolve some of the post-election cognitive dissonance that hangs like a dark cloud over the country. Share it liberally, so to speak. You might save lives.
Speaking of Hitler, I’m ending my support of UC Berkeley, where I got my MBA years ago. I have been a big supporter lately, with both my time and money, but that ends today. I wish them well, but I wouldn’t feel safe or welcome on the campus. A Berkeley professor made that clear to me recently. He seems smart, so I’ll take his word for it.
I’ve decided to side with the Jewish gay immigrant who has an African-American boyfriend, not the hypnotized zombie-boys in black masks who were clubbing people who hold different points of view. I feel that’s reasonable, but I know many will disagree, and possibly try to club me to death if I walk on campus.
Yesterday I asked my most liberal, Trump-hating friend if he ever figured out why Republicans have most of the Governorships, a majority in Congress, the White House, and soon the Supreme Court. He said, “There are no easy answers.”
I submit that there are easy answers. But for many Americans, cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias hide those easy answers behind Hitler hallucinations.
I’ll keep working on clearing the fog. Estimated completion date, December 2017. It’s a big job.
Me Here.......BRAVO Mr. Adams! That is the right way to protest these neo-commie/neo-Nazi hate mongers!
I have been a fan of the Dilbert comic strip for decades. I am glad he took the conservative way to protest these paid NAZI Soros thugs. Now if more donors would do the same, maybe, just maybe, Berkeley would get the message.
There are many proper ways to protest. This Berkeley isn't how you do it. It is only making the support for President Trump stronger! You are proving that you and not President Trump is the idiot!
I attended many TEA Party rallies. We never did anything like these neo-whatever idiots. Peaceful protests work. Lawlessness fails.
So thanks Mr. Adams. I will continue to stay a reader. Stay the course. I am so glad you are not the pointy haired boss.
