Wait a minute, I thought this was a free country; does that not apply to the Marine recruiters also?
Berkeley pretends to be a progressive city, open to all kinds of thought and discourse. Completely non-judgmental when it comes to alternative lifestyles, ethnicities, religious faiths, and diversity of opinion, but the opinion must be liberal or it is not welcome.
Don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up!
Marine Corps Recruiting Office is not welcome here, says the City Council, by a vote of 8 to 1. So the Council says it believes in peace, but keep away any peace enforcers, who wear soldier's uniforms. What sense does that make? Nonsense!
No one is forcing the citizens of Berkley to enlist. But are they not free to be invited to do so, if they wish? Planned Parenthood can open offices in Berkeley, but soldiers are not allowed. When will they ever learn right from wrong?
