If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

Still waiting for Gavin's tweet about being appalled to see free speech shut down through violent means. https://t.co/NzGUqE4aNq

And besides, blaming a whole group for the actions of a few? That sounds familiar.
