Berkely has once again shown that it is the least tolerant place in America by banning Conservative speaker Ann Coulter who had planned to appear there on April 27th.
In their usual cowardly fashion, the campus administrators cited “Security concerns” as the reason for the cancallation. This is the campus that asked police not to do their duty during the now famous Milo riots.
This is just another attempt by the left leaning educational establishment to shut down free speech and opinions that differ from their own, they are teaching the next generation to be intolerant of all other views…and they’re using your tax dollar to do it.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
In an email sent to students Wednesday, UC-Berkeley Dean of Students Joseph Greenwell explained that the university had to scrap the event because they couldn’t provide a “safe and suitable venue.”
“Given currently active security threats, it is not possible to assure that the event could be held successfully — or that the safety of Ms. Coulter, the event sponsors, audience, and bystanders could be adequately protected — at any of the campus venues,” Greenwell stated, according to the Washington Examiner.
“This is as clear-cut a case as it gets that public universities are using taxpayer dollars to shut down conservative speech, while allowing liberal speech only,” YAF spokesman Spencer Brown wrote in the statement.
