Vast majority? Does 1/4 not freak you out? Especially for: Expressing political views that are upsetting or offensive to certain groups Results: % Should be able to restrict: Democrats: 26% Independents: 27% Republicans 25%

That is actually terrifying, since if this rule ever got passed, the US would essentially become a one party state.

It is already a one party state, effectively: the party being the wealthy and connected. "R vs. D" is a distraction.

Which one party? I don't mean that factiously. The fact that the percentage is so similar tells me it's more a human effect than a particular belief system effect, and so the mechanisms that worked in the past to fight it will continue to do so. We still have to do the fighting, but singling out Berkeley is pointless and obscures the issue.
