Coulter Drops Out of Berkeley Speech, Citing Cowardice Amongst Conservative Groups

The_Real_Fly's picture

The great civil war of 2017 was supposed to commence on April 27th, at Berkeley. The lightening rod was going to be Ann Coulter, vehemently hated conservative firebrand by the left, who would've induced sheer and utter panic amongst the ANTIFA thugs who are, seemingly, unable to deal with freedom of speech.

Unfortunately, Coulter canceled the speech, blaming conservative sponsors are the reason for her change of heart.

"There will be no speech," she wrote in an email to Reuters on Wednesday, saying two conservative groups sponsoring her speech were no longer supporting her. "I looked over my shoulder and my allies had joined the other team," she wrote.

The group accused of acquiescing to ANTIFA demands are the YAF (Young America's Foundation), who said in a statement issued today that they were afraid of violence purported by the left.

“As of 4:00 p.m. today, Young America’s Foundation will not be moving forward with an event at Berkeley on April 27 due to the lack of assurances for protections from foreseeable violence from unrestrained leftist agitators,” they continued. “Berkeley should be ashamed for creating this hostile atmosphere.”

“Ms. Coulter may still choose to speak in some form on campus, but Young America’s Foundation will not jeopardize the safety of its staff or students,” they concluded. “For information on Ms. Coulter’s plans, please contact her directly.”

This prompted a series of tweets, designed to both shame YAF and Berkeley.

And here is the final kick in YAF's small balls, Coulter thanking liberals for advocating for the first amendment.

Other conservatards have pledged to show up at Berkeley without Coulter, citing other firebrands who will be attending the rally in the hopes of striking death blows to ANTIFA.

The Based Stickman, aka An American Hero, will be in attendance, so maybe, just maybe, the civil war will commence, as previously scheduled.

"conservatards"?!?  Et tu, Tyler?  Shame.

+1 to you.  I seriously wonder where the heck many of these authors are going.  Inside this article, he rightly lambasts the anarchists and authoritarians (interesting that those types make up the same group) of ANTIFA and then levels a slur at the group whose free speech rights they want to violate.

Those conservatives who he ridicules might not be perfect, but they sure as heck are closer to being pro-Constitution than the other side.  What the hell do these ZH writers want? All I see is bitching about every political figure or commentator but no visions articulated for the right way forward (just follow the Constitution, maybe?).

They need to bring solutions--not problems.  Otherwise, they should just shut up.  Their constant whining is becoming a bad shtick.

There hasn't been Republican party in my entire lifetime. Trump took the Tea Party message to the top and exposed the uniparty kabuki once and for all. The GOP, having rode the official platform of repeal and replace, build the wall, defund PP, slash government spending..., are once again denouncing anyone who even speaks of actually following through on the campaing promises and calling them "extremists".

But it is even worse this time because with control of all three branches of government and governorships and state legislatures, they are the only team on the field. Worse yet, the Dems are in complete disarray. So what do the Republicans do? Just like the Dems did in 2008 finding them in essentially the same position: declare the conservatives to be obstructionists to buy time for the opposing team can field a team after the next election so the kabuki can be restored.

Does everyone get it now? Anyone who still doesn't get it never will. They're just too stupid. We will never vote our way out of this if Trump himself keeps caving while declaring "it's all part of the art of the deal". How about adopting the "art of SCORING!!!!"

We didn't hand the GOP the entire machine to cut deals but to roll over the opposition! Start getting things UNDONE!!!!

And this just reported:

Trump is even caving on the Paris Climate Change Accord. Tell Ivanka to get her ass back in the office!

Well said.  When they had the House, they capitulated because they needed the Senate.  When they got the Senate, they capitulated because they needed the Executive branch, too.

Now they have all three, and they continue to flail about to maintain the sub-par status-quo.  

Solution: Write to your reps and senators to advise them that they'll be primaried out if they don't start repealing and replacing ObamaCare and reforming the tax code so that taxes can be managed on a 5x8 card.

Never forget, y'all, that it was the Republican Party, large and in charge of the House of Reps, that sent the NDAA of 2012 to Obama for his signature. You cannot trust them. And you certainly cannot trust a Democrat like Trump to wear an R on his lapel and do what's right.

This is what I have been saying to anyone who will listen and most do not:  THERE IS NOT ONE DIFFERENCE in our "parties."  They talk smack and do not mean it. 

Now, we have to understand that there are "leaderships" to each and THOSE MEN AND WOMEN (I hate to use neutral terms for them, as these folks are MONSTERS) are DOING THE EXACT SAME THINGS (being lobbied by Corporations, and this is NOT just Goldman, but all monied interests) and the ISSUES they are throwing around are then REPORTED AS NEWS and the ISSUES are DUMBED DOWN to simple crap such as abortion, Evil Weed, Church and Schools, Etc, and BORDERS and other crap that are MEANINGLESS TO US and this is how they keep US fighting about the issues which are not issues in reality at all. 


You might even agree that Prayer in Schools is important, but remember, THEY DO NOT GIVE ONE CRAP ABOUT INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS, or anything other than LINING THEIR OWN POCKETS, drinking the GOOD BOOZE "ON US" - - FLYING AROUND IN AIR FORCE ONE on US!   - - -  flying overseas and EATING THE BEST FOOD, drinking the BEST WINES, all in acts of Elitism, all of this expense is borne by US and ALL PAID FOR BY US.


THE FUCK ALL WITH THIS SHIT is that they are BORROWING MONEY TO DO IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Come on SHEEPLE, wake the FUCK UP!

Wha? oh man what do you want? I was dreaming about Kim's fat ass. Oh well, at least CNN is on until it's time for "The View" where they really tell it like it is. Later on we have baseball and the NBA playoffs, ain't life grand. Oh, what were you saying?

The predominance of semiliterate, incoherent posts doesn't seem coincidental. This is NOT ZH traffic.

shutterbug's picture

So violence works... either with democrats or republicans in the W.H.... doesn't matter at all.

Obama supported it when done by the so-called left and Trump ... just tweets he disagrees.


The social agreement is nullified.
Law means nothing these days as judges like the 9th and others have proven with each of their crazy rulings.

Berkeley has proven to be part of an education system which destroys free thinking and pushes sheep-group-think "We need safe spaces" cowards.

Even Marduk cancelled their Berkeley show. MARDUK !!

When confronted, they had nothing to say. Time to retire.

Nothing was stopping her from going anyways. She could have strapped a phone to her head and livestreamed it all. She wouldn't even have had to say a word and her point would have been made.

There are no heroes left.

If MLK had cowered every time he was threatened, we wouldn't even know his name.

In 2050, people will say, "Coulter who? Never heard of her."

Well that's what happens to you when you criticize the orange tiny hands fuhrer's foreign policy behaviour. All the little hitlers marching behind him dont like you anymore.

 Lots of pot stirrin. Not many cooler heads about. Just rabbel rousers. In one corner we got koolaid drinkin antifa and facing off against them we have kool aid drinkin boy scouts. Both groups are being whipped into a freny.

Somebody needs to trigger something. More than half of don't deserve to breathe. I have a dream that one day i will wake up and the grid is fried and/or patriots start using up some their old ammo.

Looking forward to seeing the "Bikers for Trump" greet the commies Thursday.  I'm sure they'll be very polite.

Bikers for Trump at Gofundme raised a helpful sum to help pay for their DC costs to support Trump:

The nightmare for us babyboomers from the 50's and 60's is imaging these 20 somethings having to someday deal with all the less than well behaved scoundrels in the global village. God only know how the hell they'll manage to deal with the likes of Kim dung Un, Bibi, Vlad, Maduro, etc., etc., etc., 

Alananda's picture

Ann Coulter, if she indeed cancels out, does not show up, shows her true, fake blond colors, half-anorexic backbone, and her limited hang-out value to "conservatism" [whatever the hell that is, really], in general. I shall say no more, my Mom always saying if you can't say something nice about a person, keep your trap shut.

slobbermut's picture

What a monumentally foolish comment....but to each his own opinion; in my book Ann Coulter is the real deal.

shutterbug's picture

You didn't follow your mom's advise. Your mom was right ... you are a moron.

 So whats your take on the cops vanishing act the other day?

Nobodys Home's picture

They were ordered to stand down by the Berkley mayor who has been outed as a supporter and member of Antifa.

Abaco's picture

The mayor needs to be personally sued for abuse of authority.  The Police Chief should have ignored the order but he has no balls and sold out his oath for a pension.

truthseeker47's picture

Thursday we will see if the commie mayor still wants the cops to stand down when her snowflakes are getting stomped.

Snowflakes will take a pass.

Oathkeepers and allies have NOT cancelled.

UPDATE: New rally at MLK Park in Berkeley, Thursday at 2 PM.

Oath Keepers has current and retired law enforcement officers and military veterans on site in Berkeley, CA to protect Ann Coulter and those attending her speech.

We successfully defended the speakers and audience on April 15 in MLK park in Berkeley as part of a combined security detail that also included American Civil Defense, III% patriots, and bikers from Two Million Bikers. The Proud Boys and Kyle Chapman and his men also showed up along with hundreds of other patriots and the event was safe and not one speaker was harmed nor anyone in the audience prevented from listening. We can do it again.

Stewart Rhodes
Founder of Oath Keepers
UPDATE: There is no stand down. We are still going to Berkeley.
We will hold our own event at Martin Luther King Jr. Park in Berkeley, Thursday at 2 PM.

(This is the same location as the Free Speech rally on April 15.)

Patriots should still come. We won't let the bad guys win.

Speakers so far:

Gavin McIinnes - Proud Boys

Kyle Chapman - AKA Based Stick Man

Stewart Rhodes - Founder of Oath Keepers

Brittany Pettibone - Award-winning author

Lauren Southern - Canadian conservative

And others...

um -- extraordinarily engaging, intelligent, and otherwise insightful comment. Idiot.

 Yall know its not about what you guys do with your free time right?

 Whats up with the down votes?

MLK park? Somebodys ass is gonna be chapped.

Another remarkably astute, constructive comment. Where do you folks come from, if anywhere?? AI? Robotic typists? What a moron is a better "fake name" than the one you sport here.

VWAndy's picture

 About all that corruption?

Where is the ACLU when you need them? Trump should call in the National Guard to protect Ann, and put Berkely in the history books right next to Birmingham and Little Rock. The symbolism would be epic.

847328_3527's picture

ACLU is most likely funding antifa.

Soros funds ACLU and Antifa as well.

Plenty of actual colleges to speak at.  Rest in Peace, University of California.

I watched the UC i attended (the party one, also the best one with the finest women and sickest drogas) turn from a low key surfer town (ca. 2009) to a full-on leftist hellhole (ca. 2015 or so and i imagine worse thereafter). Not that i was there for 6 years lol, just had friends i visit up in isla vista and sb in general for a while after i finished.

Even there, the most "fuck you" libertarian-styled pussy-and-weed-and-fireworks community turned into yet another half-police state and half-SJW hellhole. There goes the "200 chill drunk people in an open party every other house" vibe.

Thanks a lot ya fuckin fags. Glad people are FINALLY getting sick of this crap. I bet the NWO will fail faster than most believe, or even explode on the launchpad. Kind of fits my avatar i guess

Used to roll up to IV during my high school days of the early 90's... I vividly remember party hopping from house to house, bands playing, kegs flowing, and tons of loose women. Sounds like those days are long gone... shame.

847328_3527's picture

Excellent well-balanced schools of higher learning like Notre Dame and Texas Christian University and SMU would be glad to have her I'm sure.

The bigger problem is there's a serious infection in schools like Berkely that tends to spread.

Nobodys Home's picture

The infection is socialism/communism and it ALWAYS starts in the schools!....Young minds are an incredible thing to baste.

Frankfurt "School"

Look it up


Nobodys Home's picture

Know what it is...The New school as well. Now it's all about "The new civics"...I may seem like a retard, but I'm a retard that does a lot of my own research.

Here's a non peer reviewed article about the new civics. Look into it. It sucks.

847328_3527's picture

Socialism/communism is a liberal disease that enpowers the "leaders" at the top but the other 99% are true slaves under the socialist dictatorship. Look at NK, China, old Soviet Union, East germany, Cambodia under Pol Pot, etc.

 So did they arrest bike lock guy up yet? My understanding is the charges for something like that are pretty stiff. Premeditated attempted murder and a hate crime. Where is the bike that lock is for?

The cancellation of speeches by Milo, David Horowitz, and Ann Coulter is, at the end of the day, a tactical victory.

It makes the case that "universities" cannot ensure the safety and security of teachers and scholars.  Education cannot occur in an environment of fear and intimidation.  Therefore, the "degrees" award by such institutions are meaningless and illegitimate.

The solution is to revoke the accreditation of such "universities" and deny them the privilege of awarding degrees.  Without accreditation, they will be nothing more than expensive daycare centers for snowflakes.

This will get the attention of the academic leftists very fast.
