Only 98%? It’s time for the University of California to move decisively against those dissenters! How did those 2% of donations that went to Republicans slip by? Time for the thought police to go to work! Universities and colleges today not just in California, but all over the country, are radioactive centers of far-left indoctrination, not genuine centers of learning. Haters of America, haters of Jews, and supporters of jihad are hailed and lauded, but on the rare occasions when my colleagues and I are invited to speak, we are denounced, defamed, shouted down, or worse. Want your child to join Antifa? Send him or her to college.
“Report: University Of CA System Employees Gave Nearly 100% Of Political Donations To Democrats,” by Hank Berrien, Daily Wire, January 31, 2019 (thanks to Mark):
Here’s a shocking statistic: according to a new report, among employees working in the University of California system, 98% of funds donated for partisan campaigns went to Democrats.
That statistic comes from an exclusive analysis from Campus Reform, which analyzed the political donation records of employees at UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, UC Santa Cruz, UC Merced, UC Riverside, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Barbara, UCLos Angeles, UC Irvine, and UC Davis gleaned from 2017-2018 records from the Federal Election Commission.
Grace Gottschling of Campus Reform writes:
96.65 percent of all college administrators at UC schools who donated to partisan candidates or causes gave a total of $132,526.56 to Democrat politicians or Democrat organizations … UC System employees donated $4,681,192.76 to partisan groups or individuals from 2017-2018. Of that amount, 97.46 percent, over 4.5 million dollars, was given to Democrat politicians or Democrat organizations, while just 2.54 percent of the donations, totaling 118,899.11 dollars, were made to Republican politicians or Republican organizations …
1,644 faculty members at UC schools donated $3,315,553.92 to partisan politicians or political organizations. Faculty members contributed 97.39 percent of the money to Democrat politicians or organizations. Just 2.61 percent of donations went to Republican causes or politicians … 209 administrators donated a total of $135,264.06 with seven donors giving $2,737.50 to Republican politicians or Republican organizations from 2017-2018.
Campus Reform Editor-In-Chief Lawrence Jones went to California and found that many voters, despite the fact that they regarded the views of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as impractical, were not averse to voting for her. He said, “There is a group of people out here [who are] going to vote for her radical agenda even if they know that it’s not practical.”
Those donations could well spur Harris to the forefront of candidates; California has pushed it presidential primary ahead to Super Tuesday, March 3, instead of lagging behind the other primaries, as it has done before. That could prove a boon for Harris, as she hails from the state, but it also could be her downfall if she doesn’t win there. Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor and former head of the Democratic National Committee, told Yahoo News. “The advantage will go to Kamala Harris and anybody else from California,” but added, “It puts her at some risk. If she goes in to California, she has to win. If for some reason she doesn’t, that’s going to be very problematic for her.”…
