Dilbert creator ending donations to UC Berkeley after recent riots. Scott Adams says, 'I wouldn't feel safe on the campus,' and hopes those who disagree with him won't 'try to club me to death if I walk on campus'-San Francisco Chronicle, 2/6/17

2/6/17, "'Dilbert' creator ending donations to UC Berkeley: 'I wouldn’t feel safe on the campus'," San Francisco Chronicle, Alyssa Pereira

""Dilbert" comic creator Scott Adams announced on Friday that he would be "ending [his] support of UC Berkeley" following a protest that turned violent Wednesday. UC Berkeley students and other people appeared on campus to protest a talk given by Milo Yiannopoulos, an editor for the right-wing website Breitbart.

Adams wrote he has "been a big supporter lately" by donating money and other help, but "that ends today." Adams added that he was disheartened to see the protests get destructive — regardless of who exactly was causing the damage — and feels that he better sides with Yiannopoulos and his supporters on the issue.

"I've decided to side with the Jewish gay immigrant [Yiannopoulos] who has an African-American boyfriend, not the hypnotized zombie-boys in black masks who were clubbing people who hold different points of view," he writes. "I feel that's reasonable, but I know many will disagree, and possibly try to club me to death if I walk on campus." 

Some people have never heard of Milo Yiannopoulos until last night's clash at UC Berkeley, but his notoriety has been growing. So what does he represent?

During the election cycle, Adams said he "disavowed all the candidates," but now occasionally tweets and posts sentiments that would seem to align with President Trump's opinions on what the comic creator calls the "opposition media." Read Adams' post in full here."
