A law firm representing Berkeley College Republicans and the Young America’s Foundation is blasting University of California over their rescheduling of Ann Coulter’s appearance on campus to a “dead week,” when students are not in class and preparing for their final exams.
Originally, Coulter was scheduled to speak on April 27, which administrators had announced was cancelled on Wednesday, citing “security concerns.”
Following backlash, and Coulter refusing to back down, the administration decided that the speech can go on — but moved the date to May 2, when students will be in the midst of finals and less likely to be able to attend, THR reports.

Harmeet Dhillon of Dhillon Law Group does not believe that their offer of a new date passes “the proverbial ‘smell test’ of credibility,” however, and has fired off a strongly worded letter to Berkeley interim vice chancellor of student affairs Stephen Sutton. In it, the lawyer asserts that the “insincere offer to permit Ms. Coulter to speak during a two-hour window of time on May 2 when the students who invited her will not be in class and will instead by studying for finals, and when Ms. Coulter will no longer be in the area, is not a suitable alternative.”
The letter then flat out rejects the university’s rescheduling option.
“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,” Dhillon stated.
Dhillon went on to point out the irony in the fact that UC Berkeley was the birthplace of the 1964 free speech movement — when students rallied to overturn a ban on political activities at the university — but is now “leading the vanguard to silence conservative speech on campus.”
Earlier this month, the university also cancelled a speaking event by conservative writer David Horowitz.
“It’s absolutely deliberate,” Horowitz told Newsmax in an interview. “What they’ve done is they’ve taken the security issue, which is a responsibility of their police department, and thrown it on to the College Republicans.”
Meanwhile, the university recently hosted former Mexican President Vicente Fox, who spent much of his speech bashing our president.
Last weekend saw another violent clash between far left militant groups and free speech activists in the city, as anarchists attacked the “Patriot’s Day” rally organized by supporters of President Donald Trump.
The rally was a follow up to the “March 4 Trump” last month, which also endured violent from anarchists, leaving multiple Trump supporters injured.
In February, a speaking event by controversial right wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos on the Berkeley campus was cancelled after violent rioters began throwing firebombs, assaulting attendees, and vandalizing the area.
The student groups are promising to sue the university in federal court for violating their constitutional rights.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security
The royal celebrities will foot the bill.
President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.
I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!

The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.
Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.
When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.
The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
