Berkeley cancels Ann Coulter appearance over security concerns

California's U.C. Berkeley, which recently saw protests turn aggressive after students and anti-fascist activists rallied against a speech by far-right media personality Milo Yiannopoulos, has canceled a scheduled appearance by commentator Ann Coulter amid fears of repeat violence.

Ann Coulter is vowing to go ahead with her planned April 27 talk at UC Berkeley despite the event being called off by campus officials.

Mogulof said campus police had learned that some of the groups that took part in those clashes "planned to target the appearance of Ann Coulter on campus".

UC Berkeley officials say they were unable to find "a safe and suitable" venue for the right-wing provocateur, whom campus Republicans had invited to speak.

Coulter is slated to at the Stanislaus County Republican Central Committee's Lincoln Day Dinner fundraiser at Modesto Center Plaza on April 28.

The spokesperson said that the university is looking to reschedule Coulter's speech for sometime in September, and said that police will require the event to end by 3:30 PM in order to protect commuters and students from clashing with any protests.

After getting increasing resistance from the university over her concerns, Coulter shared with WND this letter she sent to YAF Tuesday, in which her growing frustration with the university's intransigence is apparent.

Tucker Carlson criticized the school for claiming they respected the First Amendment while deciding to strip Coulter of her's. "But they can't stop me".

They wrote: "UC-Berkeley, a publicly-funded university, first imposed a series of ridiculous requirements on the speech allegedly in the name of 'safety.' Coulter, we were informed, would be required to deliver her speech in the afternoon; only students would be allowed to attend; and the speech location would not be announced until close to the event". "I'm an American. I have constitutional rights".

"I am! At Berkeley next Thursday", she said in one tweet. She told the Post she believes her speech "has been unconstitutionally banned" by the "public, taxpayer-supported UC Berkeley".

"It has nothing to do with anyone's political views. But we also have an unqualified focus on safety of our students", Mogulof said.

'Unfortunately, (campus police) determined that, given now active security threats, it is not possible to assure that the event could be held successfully, ' according to a letter sent to the student group. "The way to safely give a speech I think is more like 4 hours notice". We are going to need help with big guys at the doors checking student IDs. "Everything we're doing is so the speaker and students can actually exercise their rights without disruption", Mogulof reportedly said. They said they found out about the event after reading about it in newspapers.
