Ann Coulter vows to speak at Berkeley despite cancellation
A scheduled April 27 speech at UC Berkeley by conservative pundit Ann Coulter is off, at least at the university, because university officials say they can't guarantee Coulter's safety - the third cancellation of a conservative speaker's appearance on the Berkeley campus in 10 weeks.
The school's vice chancellors claimed that the institution was "unable to find a safe and suitable venue for...[the] planned April 27 event", according to a Wednesday article from The Hollywood Reporter.
"Given current active security threats, it is not possible to assure that the event could be held successfully", the letter read.
News organizations obtained a copy of the letter Wednesday.
The decisions by UC-Berkeley to cancel both events involving high-profile Republicans are especially notable given the campus' role during the 1960s and 1970s as the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement and its long tradition of social protest.
University spokesman Dan Mogulof said that campus police learned that some of the groups that appeared to be responsible for the violence last weekend and at the Yiannopoulos event "planned to target the appearance of Ann Coulter on campus".
On Saturday, protests again turned violent - though in the city of Berkeley, not the university campus - as pro-Trump and anti-Trump protesters clashed in the streets. "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", the post reads.
Coulter toldTHR that before they canceled her, Berkeley administrators insisted that she agree to a list of demands prior to her engagement, and that she accepted their terms. She said that she believes her speech "has been unconstitutionally banned" by the "public, taxpayer-supported UC-Berkeley".
Group members have stressed that they have "no intention of acceding to these unconstitutional acts".
But the Virginia-based group Young America's Foundation, on its website Wednesday afternoon, said Coulter's speech would go on, but not at UC Berkeley.
