Ah UC Berkeley, a beacon of free thought! Where students welcome expression, openness, fairness, tolerance, and chase out anyone who disagrees with them.
We've seen what happens when someone even a little bit conservative tries to speak there, the students lose their minds and the faculty backs them up.
Berkeley has become such a snowflake bubble it's disgusting. The latest nonsense concerns Ann Coulter, who was scheduled to speak on April 27. But then the school said they had "specific intelligence" that violence might erupt, so they rescheduled her for May 2.
Coulter said no to May 2 because it falls in a "dead week," when classes are out and students are preparing for final exams.
The last day of school is May 5. What kind of crap is that, Berkeley? They totally knew what they were doing when they asked her to come on May 2, they knew nobody would be there.
Now the Berkeley College Republicans and the Young America's Foundation have enlisted the help of San Francisco attorney Harmeet Dhillon.
"Please confirm by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 21, 2017, that you will cooperate with Ms. Coulter’s planned speech by providing a similar forum to her as that provided to other prominent speakers this month. If UC Berkeley continues to insist on violating the constitutional rights of its students and our clients by marginalizing or banning Ms. Coulter’s speech, we will seek relief in federal court,including claims for injunctive relief and damages. You are on notice of potential imminent litigation, and should seek counsel on the University’s evidence preservation obligations immediately, as the destruction of any such evidence concerning the circumstances set forth above may lead to evidentiary or other sanctions in litigation. Should you wish to discuss there solution of this matter, please contact me at my office."
