On the eve of the much anticipated Free Speech Week at UC Berkeley, Milo Yiannopoulos announced that the event has been cancelled due to stonewalling by the university — so instead he promised that he will be leading a march on the campus on Sunday. However, following the announcement, Big League Politics learned that the UC Berkeley administration is telling those involved that they will not be allowed into Sproul plaza.
Essentially, Yiannopoulos and other supporters of free speech will be walking into an ambush if they are not allowed to gather in a protected area and are forced to remain in the streets surrounding the campus where Antifa will also be gathering.
The university claims that since the Berkeley Patriot, which was hosting Milo, dropped off the event, it is no longer student organized and the college does not have any obligation to host the speakers.
That was not the only drama of the day.
Originally, Yiannopoulos, along with scheduled speakers Mike Cernovich and Pamela Geller, had set up a press conference at a mansion on Treasure Island. The provocateur was planning to arrive at the house, the location of which was not publicly disclosed, in a speed boat wearing a $15,000 fur coat. In the signed contract for the rental property, the owners were required to provide Yiannopoulos with three days notice if they had to cancel for any reason. On the morning of the event, however, the team was notified that the owners learned who would be using the property and refused to host it. They even went so far as to chain the gate shut so that nobody could enter.
Instead, the former Breitbart editor held a press conference via livestream from his hotel room — which was locked down like Fort Knox. In fact, I was supposed to be present to cover the remarks in person, but was stopped at the front desk and not allowed to leave the lobby even after the hotel called the room and received confirmation that I was cleared to go upstairs.
“The administration has done everything in its power to crush its own students’ aspirations. UC Berkeley may have a deservedly poor reputation for free speech, and its students will graduate knowing less than when they came in as freshmen, but you have to give the school credit: they are masters of bureaucratic dirty dealing,” Yiannopoulos said during the press conference.
The student group hosting the event has contacted the Department of Justice with a civil rights complaint about their treatment from the faculty and administration.
Despite the warnings from UC Berkeley that speakers will not be allowed on campus, the speakers will be arriving and demanding to do so anyways.
Speaking to Big League Politics, Cernovich stated, “Berkeley said they are going to unlawfully and unconstitutionally deny our access to a public space. We will still be exercising our constitutional right to speak.”
Yiannopoulos has also vowed to “make it right” for the people who travelled in from out of town. He asked for his supporters to forward copies of flight tickets, train receipts, and hotel reservations — and let them know that he has a huge surprise planned for them on Sunday evening.
President Trump Shuts Down Minnesota Governor’s Demand for $500 Million in Riot Repair Funds
He wanted the taxpayer to pay for the riots.
President Donald Trump formally declined a request from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to declare Minneapolis a federal disaster zone in the wake of the George Floyd race riots on Saturday, preventing the city’s Democratic governor and mayor from bilking the taxpayer for bailout funds to repair the damage they tacitly allowed through refusal to halt the riots.
Walz’s office confirmed that the White House had refused his request for an emergency declaration on Saturday in a press release, explaining that the governor had hoped the federal government would clean up the mess.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
The rioting in Minneapolis may have been among the most destructive ever to occur in the United States, devastating the community, causing what some estimate to be $500 million in damages to property, and damaging more than 500 buildings. Many Americans probably wouldn’t know it, as the corporate media has largely focused on promoting the activities of the rioters, falsely describing them as peaceful protestors, allowing the model of community destruction to be exported to other American communities.
Both Governor Walz and neoliberal Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had waited fecklessly to deploy the Minnesota National Guard to contain the dangerous situation, hoping to appease the raging mob as the rioters torched a Minneapolis police precinct and destroyed countless small businesses in the city’s downtown area.
At the very least, the state’s Democratic officials won’t be rewarded with a hefty federal bailout as a result of their own irresponsibility and political fecklessness in refusing to crack down on criminal rioters. Sadly, it’ll be members of the Minneapolis community who pay for the cowardice of their local officials, and the once-serene upper-class community may never recover, instead morphing into a dilapidated shell of its former self.
