Berkeley, Beacon of Freedom and Justice For ALL

Except women. And Jews. And homosexuals.

The University of California at Berkeley is working on a partnership deal with Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Under the arrangement, which the Times says could be made final as early as Tuesday, Berkeley faculty members would collaborate on research and help the Saudi university hire professors.

Some faculty members at Berkeley are upset about the pending deal, concerned that the $10-billion university will discriminate against women and others and limit academic freedom.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Berkeley.

All you have to do is follow the money. Liberalism is full of liberals who are great at setting standards for others to which they have no intention of adhering.

This is one of the most absurd things I've ever heard. Then again, it is Berkeley, so it doesn't really surprise me.

Great post. I'm going to mention it.
