    Initial tweet, over 32K retweets.

    Follow up correction with context, barely over 100.

    And that's why the media loves Fake News.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens with the NBA. Especially if the warriors with Kerr or the spurs with Pappovich win.

    I predict Trump will stop hosting championship teams at WH and no one will care.

    I agree. Bad optics if the only person who shows up is the assistant equipment manager.

    Great editorial here:
    http://nypost.com/2017/04/20/if-us-campuses-cant-protect-free-speech-they-need-new-management/


    Berkeley’s move follows the Black Lives Matter disruption of a UCLA speech by the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald, and efforts to muzzle her the next night at Claremont-Pomona College — 200-odd protesters chanting “Shut it down!” and “From Oakland to Greece, f - - k the police.”

    Last month, goons stopped American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray from delivering a moderately conservative talk at Middlebury College, with Professor Allison Stanger hospitalized by the violence.

    More and more college students think it’s proper to act out this way. They proudly deny the free-speech rights of people whose writings they haven’t even read. (The Wellesley Review blather that we noted on Sunday is among the more coherent of these screeds; others are painfully ignorant.)

    The kids are plainly learning this nonsense at college — which means professors and administrators are failing at their most fundamental duties.
    ___________
    Increasingly, US campuses are the exact opposite of the bastions of free thought and debate they’re supposed to be. If the schools can’t save themselves, society has every right to demand new management.

    I would appear that the biggest example of Western Civilization - the University - is now the breeding grounds of the locust eating it.

    I know the solution. Stop supporting them. Stop donating to them. Stop going to their sporting events! Until then, it's just talk.

    Criticism is good. Protest is good. Violence is bad. Stoping someone else from speaking using violence or intimadation is bad. Hope that clears this up for you.

    Why did Kaepernik face backlash?

    And I appreciate the "hope that clears this up for you." So noted the trying to speak down to me to build yourself up. Sorry you feel that need.

    My tax dollars go to pay for the stop light on pops heads road. I never use it. Can my taxes not go to that?

    Well, you have shown some confusion about where the line is drawn.

    Violence. Period.

    Now people's property is tricky. This country was founded on taking other people's property. I lean towards not good, either.

    First 100 days? Not even close. It's like being down 63-6 at the first media timeout.

    Russia did influence the election. Still doesn't change the fact we have an orange man in the WH completely in over his head.
