What originally started as a bogus lawsuit for the hearing imparted.
Not only closed down the freedom of speech area on campus but resulted in the campus “Know it all’s,”stripping YouTube videos from the net.
A move that Cuba, the North Koreans, the Russians and most countries in the Middle-East would greatly admire.
Just like “Wax of Wax off,” in the movie, The Karate Kid, when President Trump has the time, he will nullify this illegal ploy pulled by Obama.
Obama Civil Rights Win: Berkeley Takes Down Free YouTube Lectures
I have always been of the opinion that a new administration should simply strike down everything Obama and his people did and then subject it to a case by case review. That goes double and triple for anything labeled as civil rights that came out of the DOJ.
This insanity made few headlines at the time. But this is another Obama civil rights victory. (Source)
The University of California, Berkeley, will cut off public access to tens of thousands of video lectures and podcasts in response to a U.S. Justice Department order that it make the educational content accessible to people with disabilities.
Today, the content is available to the public on YouTube, iTunes U and the university’s webcast.berkeley site. On March 15, the university will begin removing the more than 20,000 audio and video files from those platforms — a process that will take three to five months — and require users sign in with University of California credentials to view or listen to them.#Accessibility.
Here’s the utterly insane DOJ finding that prompted this madness. (Source)
The fight below is well choreographed and quite enjoyable if the reader is interested in martial arts.
This would be a more useful way of getting needed legislation passed and quickly do away with those who are not up to a real fight.
The United States Department of Justice (the Department) investigated the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley) under title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990…
The Department opened its investigation of UC Berkeley based on a complaint alleging that UC Berkeley’s free, publically available online content is inaccessible to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
As part of its investigation, the Department spoke with representatives for the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), the complainant in this matter, as well as Stacy Nowak and Glenn Lockhart, individuals who are deaf and would like to use UC Berkeley’s online content if it were accessible, but who cannot fully use it because it is largely inaccessible.
The Department also reviewed UC Berkeley’s policies and practices relating to the provision of accessible online content to individuals with hearing, vision and manual disabilities and interviewed UC Berkeley administrators and staff with accessibility expertise.
The Department conducted an extensive review of UC Berkeley’s online content, including 26 MOOCs, 30 lectures on YouTube, and 27 courses on iTunesU.
Based on this review, the Department has determined that significant portions of UC Berkeley’s online content on UC BerkeleyX, its YouTube channel and its iTunes U platform are not accessible to individuals with hearing, vision or manual disabilities
So now they won’t be accessible to anyone who isn’t at Berkeley.
You can thank Obama, Lynch and Rebecca B. Bond, Chief Disability Rights Section, for this one. Yet another mess for Sessions to clean up.
And this is what happens when you give liberals the power to “help” people who have been “discriminated” against.
You end up losing everything. Let’s hope somebody learns the lesson from this.
