“Mean-spirited xenophobia against undocumented persons, climate of demonization and hateful speech caused shooting spree in Tucson…”
Once again, a leftist loon in a cushy position tells us that the world is not what it is, but how it should be . Naturally, he is anti-gun, anti free speech, pro-open borders and so full of political correctness that would turn the world into a living hell if he had his way.
UC Berkeley ChancellorÂ Robert Birgeneau has come out swinging over the shooting spree that wounded Rep.Â Gabrielle Giffords and killed six people, linking it to Arizona’s “discrimination against undocumented persons” and a “climate in which demonization of others goes unchallenged and hateful speech is tolerated.”
In a campus-wide e-mail message, Birgeneau said: “It is not a coincidence that this calamity has occurred in a state which has legislated discrimination against undocumented persons.”
He added that “this same mean-spirited xenophobia played a major role in the defeat of theÂ Dream Act by our legislators in Washington, leaving many exceptionally talented and deserving young people, including our undocumented students, painfully in limbo.”

Birgeneau’s office said Tuesday that the statement spoke for itself and he would have no further comment.
