The Third Battle For Berkeley is almost upon us.
If you haven’t been following, here is what has happened so far.
Ann Coulter has been effectively no-platformed. It seems that her supporters on campus backed out.
The Berkeley College Republicans, which invited Ms. Coulter and was supposed to sponsor her visit, also backed out and joined Young America’s Foundation in saying the atmosphere had grown too hostile.
Now, it must be very difficult to be a conservative at a campus as liberal as Berkeley. We don’t know what kind of pressure was put to bear on these young Republicans. After all, UC’s president is none other than Janet Napolitano. She served under Obama as his DHS tsar…and may or may not have just been caught trying to steal 175 million dollars in university funds.
Oh yeah, and after running the Department of Homeland of Security, now Napolitano is being praised by Liberals for her desire to fight for undocumented students: (read: Illegals)
Fast forward to today. Napolitano has emerged as one of the leading defenders of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which at least for now President Trump appears to have spared, despite vowing during the presidential campaign to rescind it. The program has provided temporary relief from deportation to three-quarters of 1 million undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, including many attending the University of California.
Everything about California and especially Berkeley is pozzed and rotten. There is a reason that Berkeley has become a battleground. The Alt-Right is taking the fight right into the filthy hive of the criminally insane.
But there’s more to Ann Coulter story. From another source we find out that the police are de facto working with Antifa:
“We discovered that the University of California Police Department at Berkeley has an official ‘stand-down’ policy for any situation that develops on campus as long as the situation doesn’t involve the imminent loss of life, allowing the leftist thugs who have terrorized Berkeley’s campus to do so without consequence,” conservative group Young Americas Foundation said when pulling its support. Berkeley police did not respond to a request for comment.
“The leftist mob wouldn’t have gotten away with it — if YAF hadn’t pulled out,” Coulter told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. “I’d still like to dash onto Sproul Plaza with a megaphone, but with my sponsor basically allying with the administration to keep me off Berkeley, I think that may be nuts.”
It is difficult to say at this point, but it looks like the “conservatives” cucked out. There is no excuse for cucking out on Iron Ann.
Coulter was set to speak on Thursday even though the university told her she had no permission to do so and that she should instead re-jigger her schedule to appear the following week, when fewer students are available for outside activities because classes are not in session in preparation for finals. Coulter declined and YAF, along with Berkeley College Republicans sued administrators— including University of California president Janet Napolitano — for damages and to try to force them to allow Coulter on campus Thursday.
The college republicans are suing the University of California, just like Spencer sued Auburn University for caving to a Heckler’s Veto earlier this year.
In letters back and forth between Berkeley’s chief counsel and YAF’s attorney, Harmeet Dhillon, the university acknowledged that its police department “received mounting intelligence that some of the same groups that previously engaged in local violent action also intended violence at the Coulter event.”
Berkeley has been a hotbed of rioting since the election of President Donald Trump, but most notably in February when Milo Yiannopoulos was set to appear. Police were criticized then for an alleged “stand-down” policy after 90 cops “took a hands-off approach” and “largely stood to the side” while 150 agitators “used metal rods, Molotov cocktails and commercial-grade fireworks to overwhelm police and smash bank branch and storefront windows,” the Associated Press reported at the time.
In the lawsuit Dhillon filed on behalf of YAF and BCR, the attorney wrote: “Defendant freely admits that they have permitted the demands of a faceless, rabid, off-campus mob to dictate what speech is permitted at the center of campus during prime time, and which speech may be marginalized, burdened, and regulated out of its very existence by this unlawful heckler’s veto.”
Ann Coulter stands alone. We are now living in post free speech America. If you do not espouse views slightly to the left of Comrade Trotsky, you are a Nazi and it is now ok to deny you your 1st amendment rights.
Things have escalated. Any patriot who wishes to give a talk needs an army at their backs now.
Guess who’s got one?
The leader of Identity Evropa and one of /ourguys/ Nathan Domigo had this to say:
I am heading back to Berkeley in protest of left wing terrorism. Ann Couter was to give a speech on immigration, the most imporatant issue of our time, but backed out due to threats of violence. We will not be intimidated by globalist thugs. We are the future, and they are the past.
Oh yeah, and Gavin’s crew will be there as well.
