After riots and violent protests in and around their campus during the past three months, officials at the University of California at Berkeley said Wednesday that the school is canceling a planned speech by conservative firebrand Ann Coulter because of safety concerns.

In a letter to a campus Republican group that invited Coulter to speak, university officials said that they made the decision to cancel Coulter’s appearance after assessing the violence that flared on campus in February, when the same college Republican group invited right-wing provocateur and Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos to speak...

Coulter said the university insisted that her speech take place in the middle of the day, that only students could attend, and that the exact venue wouldn’t be announced until the last minute. She said that she agreed with the conditions, but that apparently wasn’t good enough.

“They just up and announced that I was prohibited from speaking anyway,” Coulter said...

Just the thought of potential leftist violence based on past experience got her canceled. It's just assumed members of the party of peace will be violent now.

The "New fascists" are just the old fascists.

And we've tried reasoning with you guys before. You've proven that you're not here to debate in good faith.

This wouldn't be a big issue if the police in Berkeley were just allowed to do their job. They have been given stand down orders each time the leftist protestors have gotten violent.

Good question, but the party that likes to call themselves the party of peace, love and tolerance should get a dictionary.

I agree, this wouldn't be an issue if the police put a stop to the dangerous fascists.

Rescinding an invitation for a guest =/= ban. Ann Coulter is welcome to visit the school in private. No one is banning her from entering the school.

Maybe if the Berkeley police would actually do their goddamn job for once instead of sitting on their hands, they wouldn't be being effectively held hostage by antifa.
