The college canceled Coulter’s speaking engagement, set for April 27th, over “safety concerns”. They cited the riot that took place, earlier this year, when Milo Yiannopoulos was to hold a lecture and the antifa instigated clash between patriots and “anti fascist” fascists at a recent free speech rally on campus, later dubbed “The Battle of Berkeley”. Well here’s an idea… if police are allowed to do their jobs and uphold order, maybe things won’t escalate to that level.
The university offered to host the event at a different venue, after receiving backlash, but Coulter declined and pointed out that many students won’t be around that week, as there are no classes scheduled. She also stood her ground and stated that she is going on the original date, regardless of Berkeley’s decision.
More of this needs to happen. Our constitutional rights cannot continue to be challenged without a fight.
