    Why have colleges seemingly been given the power of judge and jury?

    The Obama-era Office for Civil Rights compelled universities to design sexual assault adjudication policies that have deprived students of due process rights and weakened protections for freedom of expression. In a speech this afternoon, DeVos said her department would revise its existing guidance for complying with Title IX, the federal statute at the center of the effort.

    So are all universities "left winged" then?

    Evidence suggests most heavily lean left.

    People with higher intelligence and a willingness to examine their lives and the world around them congregate there, so yes, inevitably they become so unless they're held under close scrutiny by the Rand Thought Police.

    So you don't really trust universities then?

    I was looking at news of NASA's Cassini spacecraft around Saturn today. Very impressive:

    https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cassini/main/index.html

    Would you think of this as a "left winged" spacecraft? Would you think of the mission as a "left winged" plot?

    There is a description in your link of right wing intimidation. Students are presumably as young as 18 and not all will want to be around this. Why is this hilarious?

    Warning that a series of “explicitly violent Alt-Right, Militia, and pro-Fascist events are being planned” for September 24-27, and that this will lead to violent confrontations, they say that “We cannot ask students and staff to choose between risking their physical and mental safety in order to attend class or come to work in an environment of harassment, intimidation, violence, and militarized policing.”

    “The reality is that particularly vulnerable populations (DACA students, non-white, gender queer, Muslims, disabled, feminists, and others) have already been harmed, and are reporting increased levels of fear and anxiety about the upcoming events, the increased police presence on our campus, and how all this will impact their lives and their studies,” the letter stated.

    “Many of these provocateurs’ most committed audiences are online, and the Breitbart media machine uses that audience to harass, cyberbully, and threaten anyone who speaks out against them,” it continues, claiming that “students and faculty on our campus have already had their lives threatened for speaking out against Milo and his followers.”

    Specifically mentioning DACA recipients, the letter says that making DACA students go to campus for classes places them under an “imminent threat,” and that “faculty who DO hold classes are disadvantaging DACA students and others who will feel threatened by being on campus.”

    There was one 16 year old and numerous 17 year olds at UCB when I went there.
