Hat tip Hot Air and Daily California

This really makes a statement about UC Berkeley and its community, doesn’t it? UCB has cancelled Ann Coulter’s scheduled speech at the school over fears that protesters would cause violence. They are suggesting she come back in September-as if conditions will be different then.

It should be noted that when Coulter came to speak at UC Irvine a few years ago, there were no incidents whatsoever.

Here is the problem as I see it. The cowardly Berkeley administrators cannot guarantee Coulter’s safety because they are not willing to let their police do their duty when a riot breaks out. This was amply demonstrated at the recent riot that forced a cancellation of Milo Yiannopoulos’ scheduled speech.

So what we have here at Berkeley is the victory of the heckler’s veto. This is what any conservative speaker can expect at UC Berkeley. “Sorry. We can’t guarantee your safety.”

Here is the article from the Daily Californian, UCB’s campus paper.

We regret this outcome — especially given our unqualified support for our students’ right to bring speakers of their choosing to the University, and our deep commitment to the values and principles embedded in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution,”





Keep in mind this is a tax-payer funded university, where only politically-correct/liberal/radical speakers have a voice.
