Free Speech Activists Read Ann Coulter’s Speech at UC Berkeley Amid Threats of Violence

Published

on

Free speech activists took over MLK Square at the University of California at Berkeley on Thursday, to read Ann Coulter’s planned speech on her behalf. A small number of counter protesters were also present at the start of the event.

As the free speech activists arrived, police warned that anyone wearing a mask would be arrested.

Journalist Tim Pool is live on the scene:

Pool estimated that there were 300-400 free speech activists, and a handful of leftist counter protesters.

The Oathkeepers and the Proud Boys were on scene to provide security for those in attendance.

Coulter’s event was cancelled the day before the event was set to take place due to the university and police refusing to guarantee the safety of the speaker and those who wished to attend. Militant far-left extremists, who have rioted in the city on multiple recent occasions over right wing speakers, made “specific, significant, and real” threats of violence, according to the university chancellor.

“The University has two non-negotiable commitments, one to Free Speech, the other to the safety of our campus community members, their guests, and the public. In that context, we cannot ignore or deny what is the new reality. Groups and individuals from the extreme ends of the political spectrum have made it clear their readiness and intention to utilize violent tactics in support or in protest of certain speakers at UC Berkeley,” Chancellor Nicholas Dirks wrote in a leaked email to staff which made it clear that the former home of the 1964 Free Speech Movement now caves into political violence to quell dissenting views.

Stepping in to replace Coulter was comedian and pundit Gavin McInnes, author and co-host of Virtue of the West podcast Brittany Pettibone, Kyle Chapman — better known as Based Stick Man, and YouTuber Lauren Southern. Also in attendance were Tim Treadstone — better known as Baked Alaska and Irma Hinojosa of the group Latinas for Trump.

“We will read Ann’s speech. The show must go on,” McInnes told Big League Politics.

“In fact, that’s what America is: it’s a show that must go on. Entrepreneurs don’t take no for an answer. Housewives ground you if you’re insubordinate. Cops arrest you even if you demand their badge number,” he added. “We plow forward. When I saw Ann had been prevented from speaking, I knew I had to pick up the slack. It’s why I immigrated here. I love America.”

“Free speech is a god-given right and I don’t care if I have to take pepper spray to the face to defend it,” Lauren told Pool on his livestream during the event.

Hinojosa, Treadstone, Southern, Chapman and Pettibone also spoke at “Patriot’s Day” a free speech event in the city earlier this month, which was also violently attacked by militant anarchists.

“We understand that freedom of speech isn’t about one person, no matter how renowned. It’s about Americans as a whole and in general, which is why we felt it would be just as significant and effective for average citizens such as ourselves to step in and take a stand,” Pettibone told Big League Politics.

The university is currently being sued by the organizers of the Coulter speech.

“In each of the three recent conservative speech censorship instances, UC Berkeley impermissibly has allowed a ‘heckler’s veto’ to suppress the free speech rights of speakers properly invited by recognized student groups, and in each case, did so after first attempting to bully the students out of pursuing their quest to hear these alternative voices by piling on requirement after unconstitutional requirement – ‘security fees,’ inconvenient hours, inconvenient locations, attendance restrictions, and more,” Harmeet Dhillon of Dhillon Law Group, which is representing the student groups, wrote in a letter to the university last week.

Dhillon noted that the university, once a beacon of free speech, is now  “leading the vanguard to silence conservative speech on campus.”

As we previously reported, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin happens to be a member of the Facebook group of far left militant organization, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), who has been orchestrating the riots.

BAMN was named by the FBI in 2005 as thought to be involved in domestic terrorist activities.

COULTER: Detained Illegals Are “Being Separated From Coyotes and Drug Mules”

Published

on

Author and pundit Ann Coulter was confronted by a TMZ cameraman today, and the result was not pretty for the paparazzo.

“The biggest thing is these kids are being separated from their parents,” said the cameraman posing a lefty journalist

Coulter responded in her usual ruthless manner.

“They’re being separated from coyotes and drug mules, that has already been proven before” she said.

WATCH:

Coulter continued to savage her adversary.

“The parents can stay in Mexico,” she said. “You don’t get to get out of committing crimes in this country because you have a baby. I mean, why don’t we let out Bernie Madoff. His kids suffered. One committed suicide.”

The activist then brought up the First Ladies who have denounced President Donald J. Trump’s zero tolerance policy.

“Thank God First Ladies aren’t elected officials,” Coulter replied with a grin.

When asked if she thought this would be a “stain on our country’s history,” Coulter delivered her knockout blow.

“It’s going to be the END of our country’s history if we let these hordes in,” she said. “It will never, never stop.”

WaPo Employees Beg Bezos for Raise

Published

on

More than 400 employees at the Washington Post have signed an open letter to owner Jeff Bezos demanding better working conditions after more than a year of failed negotiations with upper management.

“[Dear Jeff Bezos] we workers of The Washington Post have been bargaining for a year and have little to show for it because The Post won’t meet us halfway on much of anything,” says a tweet shared by the Post Guild. “We love The Post. We know you do too. Our work has earned us more than what The Post is offering.”

According to Deadlinesignees of the letter include prominent employees like White House reporter Ashley Parker and political reporter Dave Weigel.

Bezos is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon. His estimated net worth is nearly $142 billion. He bought the paper in 2013.

The left-wing culture that has engulfed the Washington Post has spilled over into the office, and come back to bite Bezos. His employees are calling on him to “share the wealth” that they claim to have created.

“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the petition says.

The staff accompanied the petition with a video.

WATCH:

“I’m fighting for equal pay, because regardless of gender or skin color, we all deserve to be paid the same,” said a compilation of employees in the video.

The sword of social justice appears to be turning inward on the Washington Post.

See How This Trump Supporter Trolled De Niro At His Own Play

Published

on

A little more than a week after his vulgar anti-Trump rant at the Tony Awards, actor Robert de Niro was repaid in kind at the curtain call of his version of “A Bronx Tale,” the Broadway show.

In the style coined by independent reporter Laura Loomer, a man stood up at the end of the show, rushing the stage with a “Keep America Great” flag. De Niro is the director of the show.

“The times we live in,” wrote Joe Del Vicario, who was at the show. “At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”

 

But politicizing shows is nothing new for the left. In November 2016, a cast member of Broadway Musical “Hamilton” lectured Vice President Mike Pence after the show. Pence was booed while exiting the theatre.

WATCH:

“We, sir, we are the diverse American who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.” said a cringeworthy Brandon Victor Dixon on stage.

After the show, Dixon continued injecting his politics into Broadway.

“We really thought this was an important moment to really say something,” he said. “To get in front of an individual with whom we feel we have differences and to make sure that he hears and he sees us.”

According to the new rules set by the left, yesterday’s “A Bronx Tale” protest is simply par for the course. The protestor, after all, was just getting in front of someone with whom he disagrees, right?

No surprise that the left does not want to play by the rules it has created.
