U.C. Berkeley Will Provide Counseling to Help Snowflakes Recover From Ben Shapiro Being Allowed to Speak

University of California, Berkeley — home of the Free Speech Movement — is so open-minded that it will actually allow mainstream conservative Ben Shapiro to speak to a limited number of students on Thursday. This is a very big deal, so educrats are making special arrangements:

Those “arrangements” to meet the “unusual challenges” include 1) shutting down multiple buildings and parking lots to create a “closed perimeter” around Zellerbach Hall, where Shapiro is speaking; 2) providing “alternative options” for faculty, staff and students so they can try to engage “in their regular academic activities without fear” of violence erupting; 3) imposing special restrictions on tickets and IDs; and 4) offering “support and counseling services for faculty, staff and students.”

Faculty, staff, and students won’t need counseling to recover from the shock of hearing Shapiro undermine their beliefs by making arguments for individual liberty. They will never hear those arguments, unless they voluntarily come to his speech, which most of them would only do to shout him down. The counseling is needed because the very notion that someone would be allowed to express views on campus that do not conform to prevailing hard left dogma is too traumatic to be endured without professional help.

According to campus liberals, speech with which they disagree is literally violence, so permitting it is bound to take a toll on their fragile psyches.

Maybe they will call in the Feelings Matter Brigade.

Incidentally, Ben Shapiro is hated by the Alt Right for his attacks on Trump. Yet Antifa flyers floating around Berkeley accuse him of “fascist intellectual thuggery in the service of the Trump/Pence fascist regime.”

Progressives have progressed to the point of becoming hilarious parodies of themselves. Yet still they keep on progressing.

Snowflakes melt upon learning that dissent is still permitted.

    When “hate crime” laws are enacted across the US, there will be no more “hate” and bad feelings allowed – punishable by death. What constitutes those “crimes” will be interpreted by these “snowflakes” that are now derided.

    Yet Antifa flyers floating around Berkeley accuse him of “fascist intellectual thuggery in the service of the Trump/Pence fascist regime.”

    Fascist twice in the same sentence? That’s all? C’mon, Antifa; you can do better than that. How about: fascist intellectual fascist thuggery in the fascist service of the fascist Trump/Pence fascist regime

    And what about RACISM? You forgot about that too. Shame on you! Here, let me help:

    fascist racist intellectual racist fascist thuggery in the fascist racist service of the racist fascist Trump/Pence fascist racist regime

    Or just:

    racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist racist fascist

    There you go.

  • So we have a group of hateful fascists who protest hate and fascism while using fascist methods to silent dissenting views and calling the group supporting free speech nazis and racists all while being financed by a hateful, racist ex nazi billionaire. Welcome to Bizarro world.

    These Berkeley snowflakes need Patton’s method of counseling:

    Indeed, yet even before there was ‘political correctness’ Patton was severely disciplined for this “counseling.”

    Was amazed Berkeley wouldn’t take them down, saying, “Look, kids, we are a serious institution of learning and can’t be made to look foolish like this…” but then I realized that it is NOT that…that’s sad, man.

    The DSM-V shipment has arrived and the trucks are being currently offloaded. Campus support and counseling are hoping that the ten thousand copies ordered will be sufficient to diagnose/counsel the moonbats.
