Coulter rebuffs Berkeley’s reschedule offer
Ann Coulter has rejected the University of California’s offer to speak at a protected location on campus, saying the school has no veto over her plans and comparing it to Jim Crow racists.
On Thursday, the school said it had rescinded the previous day’s cancellation of the speech over security fears from leftist rioters, and would have a secure on-campus facility where she could speak May 2. The speech had been planned for April 27.
The right-wing diva was having none of it though, taking to Twitter on Thursday evening to warn her followers “not fall for b.s Berkeley press release claiming they ‘rescinded’ cancelation. They added NEW, more burdensome condition on my const rts.”
She mockingly compared Berkeley’s press release to “Southern sheriff rescinds cancelation of black vote! They’ll just have to take this absurd literacy test first.”
Miss Coulter then reiterated that she will
speak as planned.
“I’m speaking at Berkeley on April 27th, as I was invited to do and have a contract to do,” calling it good news for California taxpayers that “you won’t be required to pay $$ to compensate me & my crew for rebooked airfare & hotels. I’m speaking on 4/27.”
