Berkeley Set To See A Lot More of Milo in Coming Weeks, Free Speech Fight Continues

The University of California at Berkeley has been at the center of a First Amendment firestorm in recent weeks, as conservative speakers have routinely been shunned from campus.

Just this week the University announced that they could no longer provide a reasonable guarantee of safety for conservative author and personality Ann Coulter during a speaking engagement scheduled for this coming Thursday, April 27.   The decision was due, in no small part, to a liberal-sprung riot in the California city after it was announced that right wing personality Milo Yiannopolous was scheduled to speak.

Coulter his since vowed to continue with her engagement as planned, setting up a showdown between the liberal campus and the conservative base that Coulter’s appearance will gather.  Now, a familiar face in the First Amendment fight at Berkeley is planning a comeback as well.

“Milo Yiannopoulos is plotting his comeback, allegedly to take place at UC Berkeley, whether university administrators like it or not.

“‘In light of recent controversies, I am planning a huge multiday event called Milo’s Free Speech Week in Berkeley later this year. We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression,’ Yiannopoulos said on his Facebook page Friday.

“Yiannopoulos wouldn’t say who is backing the effort, financially or otherwise, nor would he say which, if any, student group has invited him to speak at Berkeley. When he was last set to speak there in February, protesters set fires, threw rocks and attacked fans, and the UC Police Department shut down the event.

“Administrators are preparing for a similar reception for Ann Coulter when she attempts to speak on Thursday even after administrators told her she didn’t have permission to do so and moved her event to a different venue in the following week.”

The liberals in America have been angry, riotous, and rank in their ongoing degradation of President Donald Trump.  Actions such as those perpetrated by the anti-Milo protesters, while unacceptable in modern society, seem perfectly allowable in the warped liberal mind.
