UC Berkeley had told Ann Coulter to stay away and not give her speech, but after a lot of people complained, they’ve decided to let the sack of petrified pterodactyl bones speak anyway!
UC Berkeley officials on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s appearance at the university, but have rescheduled it from next week to May 2, according to a statement from the university.
Coulter’s speech on immigration will be held at an “appropriate, protectable venue,” the university said. The university did not disclose the location of the speech. But the university said it had advised Coulter’s representatives and the Berkeley College Republicans, which organized the April 27 Coulter event, that the speaking engagement would take place next month.
“We have an unwavering commitment to providing for the safety and well-being of speakers who come to campus, our students and other members of our campus and surrounding communities,” Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said in the statement. “While there may, at times, be tension between these paired commitments, we cannot compromise either.”
Coulter had complained on Fox News that they kept changing the regulations that she had to meet in order to speak there, but when she kept meeting them, they abruptly canceled the speech. She told Fox that she would show up anyway, saying, “what are they gonna do? Arrest me?!”
In my opinion, she’s a disgusting foul wretch that is undermining conservatism and no one should let her speak anywhere, but that’s just me.
