More Leftist Hatred in Berkeley

I know I'm a little late with this but it's such a good cause. Nicholas Provenzo at Rule of Reason has a petition defending the Marines from the attempted ostricism by the Berkeley Cal. city council. Mr. Provenso reports:
I've created an online petition in defense of the Marines against the resolutions of the City Council of Berkeley which declare that United States Marine Corps recruiters are "uninvited and unwelcome intruders" within Berkeley city limits and applauds those who choose to "impede" the Marines in their recruiting mission.
It's time Americans let the Berkeley city council know that they are "uninvited and unwelcome intruders" in America. I recommend signing it. I did and I applaud those who choose to "impede" the Berkeley council's mission.

(You know, in a laissez-faire capitalist society, the government would not be involved in education in any way. All universities would be privately owned and would have the right to refuse having military recruiters on campus if so desired. But this will never occur to the banal bird brains at Berkeley city hall.)

Update; added final comment footer.

Please sign our petition as well at www.MoveAmericaForward.org. We will personally deliver hard copied to the next city council meeting on 2/12.

Judging from their website, Move America Forward is a conservative organization. As such it does not deserve support. Conservatism--the ideology whose highest values are God, Tradition, Nation, and Family--is the enemy of a philosophy of one world, reason (not faith), egoism, and laissez-faire capitalism.

Advocates of a rational philosophy can, of course, properly form ad hoc alliances with both leftists and conservatives as individuals and on particular narrow issues, such as abolishing drug laws or eliminating a particular tax. Broader alliances would be a sanction of conservative or leftist principles.
