UC Berkeley reverses decision to cancel Ann Coulter visit

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-ann-coulter-speech-uc-berkeley-20170420-story.html

UC Berkeley officials on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel
conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s appearance at the university,
but have rescheduled it from next week to May 2, according to a
statement from the university



On Wednesday, UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said campus police
feared that some of the same extremist forces who caused problems
during recent clashes would be out in force when Coulter was on
campus.

Coulter attacked Berkeley’s decision in a series of tweets, saying “no
school accepting public funds can ban free speech.”

University of California officials have been caught between left-wing
activists who have tried to shut down appearances by conservative
speakers and right-wing figures who have criticized them for allowing
disruptive protests. University administrators have argued that their
campuses should be able to tolerate the views of even far-right
figures. And some in Berkeley charge that the most extreme protesters
on both sides are outsiders provoking violence for their ends.

Exactly right.
They should be encouraging and making it possible for free speech and free exchange of ideas as long as they are supposed to be places of higher learning.

Mostly, it looked like they have been caught between the left wing anti-free speech shitheads and campus police who seem to have been told to stand down and let the shitheads have their way. Gee, you don't suppose the powers that be at Berkeley are somewhat left of center?

What does the fact that Nazi types have invaded the campus every time a conservative was to speak and incited violence against those exercising their 1st Amendment rights, thereby causing riots. The cops are worried that they're not equipped to handle Brown Shirts in action.

Free speech is not using school supplied facilities. She can do the typical
Berkeley thing and bring her own megaphone and soap box.

Actually it is when the school supplied facilities are rented or offered
to the public for school use and specifically so since government funds
are being used at the college. To deny a person free speech while
allowing it to others violates the equal protection of the law that is
offered by the 14th amendment. Suppose she is a Lesbian or as most
Liberals like to suggest she is a transgender... then silencing her
would NOT just be violating equal protection but it's a hate crime by
the Berkley college administrators.

Unless they are provided by funding from the 0Government...

State colleges are required to give free speech rights because we the
people, pay for them.
