U C Berkley has cancelled a speech by a conservative speaker Ann Coulter.
Is this where we are headed as a nation?
What are they afriad of?
Where are the campus police?
If this is allowed to stand, no speech on college campuses will be safe any more...
Not just my opinion that it is the fascistic hallmark of today's American left. Belittle, bully, insult, lie, protest, ban, riot, attack, ... anything to stop the free speech of the opposition. We might as well get use to it, because its going to get worse before it gets better. Its so self destructive it has to fail.
I saw a headline that Anitfa were protesting to demand payment from George Soros for their services, not sure if that is true. But, that could go hand in hand with other reports I'm seeing.
Milo Yiannopoulos, said he will return to Berkeley and bring an army. Yikes!
Personal note: Remember, Jack, when we are weak, He is strong.
This whole incident is so unnecessary if the college would just do their job. There main responsibility is to maintain peace and order on campus. Any disrruption should be dealt with harshly. That is the simple solution. When you give an inch, they will take a mile.
More censorship on YouTube. Infowars’ Owen Shroyer was breaking down today’s protests outside the University of California, Berkeley...the video was posted 2 hours ago and was killed. Took the comments down too.
I guess they don't want the world to know what's going on that video. I have a friend that just got a drone that can reach 3.2 miles and that is how far he lives from Berkeley.
ADDED: Berkeley Protest Riot Police, Ann Coulter Speech, Donald Trump Supporters Rally Freedom Antifa

Added: not much to see on that video.
Berkely says it is for "security" reasons: I'd like to see the campus put out a statement that the next speaker to be allowed time on campus will be Coulter. No exceptions, not even liberal ones, and if it means no guest speakers until the current crop of idiots has been given their fake diploma and left campus. They might follow Coulter with Milo Yiannopoulos as they did the same thing to him.
Interestingly, Berkeley has not been sued over the cancelled speech

Security cuts both ways. Start arresting some of those protesters and I wm willimg to bet some of them are not students but professional protesters and agitators.

So we have freedom of speech in the US, but we also have a crime called "incitement to riot."If you want to commit that crime, what you need to do is get up in front of a group of people, and say some words. If the words you say make the crowd angry enough to run around assaulting other...

Do we really have freedom of speech?
by Michael Collins aka Lakemoron 5 years ago
Do we (Americans) have freedom of speech? If so should Joan Rivers’s apologies for what she said? Can we learn from this and other people who say what they think without considering the consequences while you have the right to say what you want you have to take responsibility for what you say. Is...
