Coulter to speak anyways...


The University of California at Berkeley is bracing for massive protests and potential violence in an open, public space known as Sproul Plaza after hearing that conservative commentator Ann Coulter plans to give a speech there Thursday. 
The state flagship university has become ground zero for an intense confrontation between the far left and the far right since Donald Trump’s election in November, with some protesters trying to stop controversial speakers from appearing on campus and others objecting that such actions violate their right to free speech. Some of the clashes have devolved into riots, leaving the school and city to struggle with how best to balance the free exchange of ideas with community safety.

Let's be clear... this isn't a two sided conflict here. What we have is Berkeley students who are just looking to go listen to a best-selling author and media personality give a speech, just as millions of students throughout our nation's history have done in the past. The only conflict comes from those who will dress up in black outfits, ski-masks, and do everything in their power to violently promote their own personal intolerance.

If Berkeley cannot allow Ann Coulter to come to campus and speak, then the only real solution is to ban any public speech by anyone, ever, on campus grounds, regardless of political (or even non-political) affiliation. Fair is fair.

Perhaps more outrageous is the police chief telling his officers to stand down and let the violence happen.

Coulter has cancelled her speech/publicity stunt. Got her name back in the news for a while. Now it's time for her to look for the next grandstanding opportunity.

If you think there isn't an assault on free speech, you haven't been paying attention.

Instead of wearing their hoods (reminiscing about the olden days), they're wearing their little masks.

Fucking cowards.

she doesn't seek out these opportunities indy. they seek HER out. every book she writes goes straight to the NY Times bestseller list and she was even on MSDNC's 'softball' with tingles recently.

money and exposure she has plenty of.

"The Fire Down Below"


Here comes old Rosie she's looking mighty fine
Here comes hot Nancy she's steppin' right on time
There go the street lights bringin on the night
Here come the men faces hidden from the light
All through the shadows they come and they go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

Here comes the rich man in his big long limousine
Here comes the poor man all you got to have is green
Here comes the banker and the lawyer and the cop
One thing for certain it ain't never gonna stop
When it all gets too heavy
That's when they come and go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

It happens out in Vegas happens in Moline
On the blue blood streets of Boston
Up in Berkeley and out in Queens
And it went on yesterday and it's going on tonight
Somewhere there's somebody ain't treatin' somebody right

And he's looking out for Rosie and she's looking mighty fine
And he's walking the streets for Nancy
And he'll find her everytime
When the street light flicker bringing on the night
Well they'll be slipping into darkness slipping out of sight
All through the midnight
Watch 'em come and watch 'em go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

Fucking cowards.

The way the left is attempting to put down free speech is like President Woodrow Wilson .

He turned Americans against German-Americans for doing nothing more then honoring their German background. Leftist turned them in, they were arrest and put in prisons, why , well, because they dared voice their opinion, one that Pres Wilson could not stand.

It is the left that talks of tolerance and at the same time is the most rock ribbed ill tolerant .

Today, we have the internet, they are not allowed to do it to any American, never again.

Hitler is in power here?

Indy Voter said...

Mussolini, perhaps. Trump did retweet a number of his quotes during the campaign, after all.

Commonsense said...

Blaming Trump for the suppression of free speech by leftist thugs and the feckless faculty at Berkeley is like blaming the Jews for the rise of Naziesm in Germany.
