Starving for attention at UC Berkeley


www.sfgate.com


When some 20 UC Berkeley students announced on May 3 that they were launching a hunger strike to protest the new Arizona immigration law, they also issued a set of "demands." They demanded that Chancellor Robert Birgeneau denounce the Arizona law, rehire laid-off janitors and drop disciplinary actions against students arrested after a violent protest.

You knew how the story would end before it ended. The administration would kowtow to student activists by agreeing to meet with them and behave as if their demands merited serious consideration. Most of the activists' impossible demands w

Spoiled Brat Kids.

I wouldn't and I won't let anyone dictate to me how I'm suppose to think.

Here is the proper link
I'd wish I could help those poor students out by getting them all one way tickets to Somalia so they wouldn't be tempted to break the strike. I'm mid-20s and I brought up the Arizona issue to my friend. He's studied in Mexico and vehemently will defend the bleeding heart position about "they're just like you and me," "borders are just imaginary lines," "the law is unjust" crap. Can't get through to these liberal kool-aid drinkers. So many young people with this mindset.


I hope they get really, reeeaaally hungry.


Makes me think of this:

As much as I am for freedom of speech...

I would have loved to see these yuppies get pepper sprayed.

But then that would have given them some sort of legitimacy. Still would have been funny though.

Let the hippies starve themselves to death.

They would be doing the planet a favor by removing themselves from the gene pool.

We are talking UC Berkeley here, so not even in the United States...

I would just love to go out there each day and eat my lunch in front of them not saying a single word.

Yeah, I'd have let them go hungry. I've never understood the idea of a hunger strike.
You want to go hungry? Feel free.


I'm not surprised it got attention in Ca. though.

I hope they do us all a favor and starve to death. What a bunch of Morons. I can't believe they would give these guys any legitimacy by seeing them! Bunch of brain dead kids who have no grip on what's really going on in the world.

Isn't it ironic that it is not a group of illegal immigrants starving themselves?
It is their liberal support group.
I can just see the illegal immigrants wondering what these crazy gringos are doing.
"starving yourself man? Hey, I left Mexico to eat!"
Maybe the crazy Berkeley gringos should go to Mexico and stage their drama.

Why is it that I somehow picture them sitting in a tree whilst they embark on their hunger strike?

I can't get it out of my head... I'm convinced they're sitting in a tree...

And I KNOW at least one of them has an acoustic guitar... in the tree...

Damn hippies... with your patchouli and bohemian man-funk... smell like cabbage I'll bet... in your tree...
