“Free Speech Week” that was planned to be hosted tomorrow, by Milo Yiannopoulos and the Berkeley Patriot, has faced a major bump in the road. After weeks of being bullied by the left, they finally caved. The students held on vigorously, under attacks and threats from the far leftist administration at the college. In a statement put out by the Patriot, they stated that they had been bullied into submission by the university via bureaucratic stonewalling tactics. The students and Milo inc. have produced evidence that the college was stonewalling them for weeks, not giving them responses to any of their emails, and throwing 90-minute deadlines that were specifically designed to force a cancellation.
The University also stated in a press conference that all the funds that were transferred to the university for the reservations of venues were returned to Milo, who says he has received nothing. This is the most evident leftist censorship that we’ve seen in awhile, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away. Milo held a live press conference on his Facebook page (surprised it wasn’t censored) in which he gave a statement saying that they would still host a rally on the steps of the university no matter what and that they had talked to Berkeley PD to ensure the safety of the speakers, and all who come to listen. Steve Bannon and Ann Coulter decided not to speak at Free Speech Week due to security concerns, because of the loss of the indoor venue.
The University wasn’t done dancing on the grave of free speech, however, as they then pulled out their giant “Convenient rules” rulebook, and said that any speaker that wished to speak on the campus without student sponsorship must be educational, which the university said, the event wasn’t. This school has shown again and again their hatred for not only conservatives, whether it be professors, students or speakers, but their hate for free speech as well. I definitely don’t want to go anywhere near here for an education, but then again, I don’t think they’ll want me 🙂Oh and ANTIFAs staging a counter-rally, but the police seem to say they will have that controlled.
