Today it was announced that the speaking engagement of conservative writer and commentator Anne Coutler at UC Berkeley was cancelled. The university cited safety concerns in an official statement. “Given current active security threats, it is not possible to assure that the event could be held successfully,”. This is the second time in a few short months that conservative speakers have been silenced at the university. Meanwhile, events such as “Hippie Modernism, cinema and counter culture” have gone off without a hitch.
UC Berkeley is not only complacent in their duties as a university, but they are actively aiding and imbedding violent fascist and they’re not the “Alt-Right”. Within the last year, without fail, any event with a message right of A Bernie Sanders speech has been violently suppressed. From the riots at Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event, to the Berkeley Police Departments stand down at the now famous “Battle For Berkeley”, Berkeley as a university and a community is actively engaging in the violent suppression of free speech.
Ms. Coulter replied to the university’s cancelation by stating in an interview “Yes, it was officially banned but they can’t stop me. I’m an American. I have Constitutional rights.”. She plans go forward with or without the university’s consent.
