Coul­ter re­buffs Berke­ley’s resched­ule of­fer

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Vic­tor Mor­ton

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.”
