It’s not me, it’s you: Dilbert creator Scott Adams is breaking off all ties with UC Berkeley, where he obtained his MBA and to which he has donated ample time and money, in response to the university’s treatment of guest speaker Milo Yiannopoulos in the aftermath of the violent and destructive riots.
In a Friday blog post on his website entitled “Berkeley and Hitler,” Adams blasted the Left’s insistence on comparing President Donald Trump to Hitler as absurd and shared an article outlining how inapt the comparison actually is.
He then pivoted to Berkeley: “Speaking of Hitler, I’m ending my support of UC Berkeley, where I got my MBA years ago. I have been a big supporter lately, with both my time and money, but that ends today. I wish them well, but I wouldn’t feel safe or welcome on the campus,” Adams wrote.
Instead, Adams cast his support behind Milo, whom he described as “the Jewish gay immigrant who has an African-American boyfriend,” instead of the “hypnotized zombie-boys in black masks who were clubbing people who hold different points of view.”
“I feel that’s reasonable,” Adams added, “but I know many will disagree, and possibly try to club me to death if I walk on campus.”
Adams emerged as an influential supporter of Trump’s presidential campaign last September, when he publicly switched his endorsement from Hillary Clinton. He announced the shift in a blog post and praised Trump as a masterful “persuader” whose style of leadership is easily mistaken as “scary” and “impractical.”
