What happened to Berkeley and the Free Speech Movement?

Klocek is the DePaul Prof who lost his job after he argued with members of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and United Muslims Moving Ahead (UMMA).

David Seleb linked an on-line petition for DePaul students to express support for Klocek's right to free speech without getting canned.

Look at David's link and you'll find a startling anonymous comment I've quoted below. Startling for a guy like me who came of age with Mario Savio and the Berkley Free Speech Movement.

A Catholic in Chicago: DePaul Students for Thomas Klocek: "Anonymous said...
You must realize that freedom of speech has consequences. If we had total freedom of speech, we there would be a lot of racism and hate in our society."
