Speechless in Berkeley

A generation ago UC Berkeley was considered the home of the free speech movement. Now students and imported thugs riot there to silence speakers they don’t like.

Speechless

Last week the university cancelled a speech by Ann Coulter. The school claimed it couldn’t assure her safety. She vowed to speak anyway but backed out yesterday.

Update 4/29:

Apparently anti-free speech protestors are pro-free massage. They got free rubdowns in the “Empathy Tent” at the sans Coulter event.

Federal Funding Sanctuary Cities

President Trump cracked down on sanctuary cities.  He ordered restrictions on federal funding to cities that refuse to turn over undocumented immigrants to the feds.  Federal District Court Judge William Orrick, blocked his order.

Last year President Obama threatened to pull federal funding from schools that don’t provide transgender restroom facilities. Trump revoked that rule in February.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had sued over the bathroom issue on the grounds that Obama had bypassed congressional authority. Judge Orick used the same reasoning to block Trump’s sanctuary order.

Getting Re-Accommodated with the Friendly Skies

The cutline on my first sketch for this cartoon read, “You just got x-rayed, searched, and groped… now you’re surprised we’re taking your seat?!”

But I changed it when I read that United CEO Oscar Munoz said the airline “re-accomodated” the lucky passengers.

CNBC reports Munoz was named communicator of the year by a public relations group in March.

Sanctuary Cities Federal Funds

Attorney General Sessions says sanctuary cities are violating the law. So he plans to punish them by withholding federal funds.

They say that’s against the law.

United Leggings

United Airlines created a social media uproar when it kicked two teenage girls off a flight for wearing leggings. Turns out you can wear all the leggings you want.  Even if you’re Caitlyn Jenner. The girls were subject to a dress code because they were flying free on an employee pass.
