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.”
I’m so sorry Berkeley canceled my speech. I’m so sorry YAF acquiesced in the cancelation. And I'm so sorry for free speech crushed by thugs.
This prompted a series of tweets, designed to both shame YAF and Berkeley.

If we had continued to fight we would have won.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) April 26, 2017
I’m very sad about Berkeley's cancelation, but my sadness is greater than that. It is a dark day for free speech in America.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) April 26, 2017
It’s sickening when a radical thuggish institution like Berkeley can so easily snuff out the cherished American right to free speech.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) April 26, 2017
And here is the final kick in YAF's small balls, Coulter thanking liberals for advocating for the first amendment.
I am so grateful to people like Bill Maher, Chris Matthews and Margaret Carlson for opposing Berkeley’s censorship.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) April 26, 2017
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.
We will still be having a rally in Berkeley regardless of @AnnCoulter showing. We patriots do not know the word surrender. JOIN US WARRIORS!— Based Stick Man (@BasedStickMan_) April 26, 2017
