    Oct 7, 2017 | American Thinker

    What? A tax may actually be repealed in a prominent stronghold of the Democrats? It appears that politics after Trump's victory may have changed at more levels than the federal government.

    The University of California, Berkeley, where the modern New Left student movement began with the Free Speech Movement of 1964, has come full circle, and has surrendered to the anti-free speech fascists of the left. Even the increasingly left wing Washington Post see the irony: The decisions by UC-Berkeley to cancel both events involving high-profile conservatives are especially notable given the campus's role during the 1960s and 1970s as the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement and its long tradition of social protest.
