This headline about UC Berkeley from the S.F. Chronicle speaks volumes:

“Free speech”? Everybody RUN!

At UC Berkeley, 177 professors and graduate students have signed an open letter urging thousands of colleagues and classmates to boycott campus for four days this month to ensure their “physical and mental safety.”

The strongly worded letter, titled “Boycott the Alt-Right @UCBerkeley,” asks that students, instructors and employees cancel classes, close buildings and “not penalize students who are afraid to come to campus” from Sept. 24 to 27.

That’s when Milo Yiannopoulos has said he, Steve Bannon, Ann Coulter and other couriers of the far-right agenda are supposed to descend onto campus for four days of rallies and speeches they’re calling “Free Speech Week.”

When it comes to fragility, these people make peanut brittle look like magnesium alloy.

The new chancellor for UC Berkeley should tell profs afraid of free speech on campus to feel free to boycott the university forever and find jobs elsewhere, but I have a feeling it’ll be the chancellor who ends up being sent packing at some point.
