You’ve got to hand it to Joyce Carol Oates. The woman’s managed to make a career for herself despite apparently having no idea what the hell she’s talking about.

Check out her take on U.C. Berkeley’s problem with violent protesters trying to shut down speeches by conservatives like Ben Shapiro:

“A serious and complex issue,” you guys.


To be fair, we’d expect nothing less from the lady who thought Steven Spielberg murdered a triceratops.

Never. Gets. Old.

And if you’ve got a problem with that, Joyce wants you to remember that that’s on you.

Other acceptable solutions?

Or at least teach them the meaning of free speech. They are Berkeley, after all. They’re supposed to be all about free speech over there.
