Berkeley is in the news again! UC Berkeley has cancelled Ann Coulter’s scheduled April 27th appearance citing ‘security concerns’. Coulter isn’t backing down, however, saying she has Constitutional rights to speak.

Via the Hollywood Reporter: “Yes, it was officially banned,” Coulter said of her planned April 27 appearance. “But they can’t stop me. I’m an American. I have constitutional rights.”

“Yes, it was officially banned,” Coulter said of her planned April 27 appearance. “But they can’t stop me. I’m an American. I have constitutional rights.”

Coulter had accepted an invitation from two campus groups — the Berkeley College Republicans and BridgeUSA — to deliver a speech about immigration, the topic of one of her 12 New York Timesbest-selling books.

“If that’s banned, then no conservative can speak,” Coulter told THR on Wednesday. “Meanwhile, corrupt banana republic leaders like Vicente Fox have the red carpet rolled out for them on the taxpayer’s dime.”

Fox, the former president of Mexico, spoke in Berkeley this week.

On Wednesday, though, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that the powers that be at Berkeley ordered that Coulter’s speech be canceled, citing riots that erupted when Milo Yiannopoulos and other conservatives have visited the university.

Coulter told THR that before they canceled her, Berkeley administrators insisted that she agree to a list of demands prior to her engagement, and that she accepted their terms.

“I’ve acceded to all their silly demands, which they thought would end it. When I said, ‘yes, yes, yes,’ they canceled anyway. No more clear-cut proof that taxpayer-supported universities will not allow conservative speakers,” Coulter told THR.

“We have been unable to find a safe and suitable venue for your planned April 27 event featuring Ann Coulter,” Berkeley’s vice chancellors told the two groups who were set to co-host the event.

“I’m giving a speech,” countered Coulter. “Speech will go on.”

Ann Coulter sent out a series of tweets to clear up the fake news about what really happened…
