3 Con­ser­va­tive com­men­ta­tor Ann Coulter has can­celed her speech planned for this week at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia’s Berkeley cam­pus after a dis­pute with school of­fi­cials, who feared violent protests over whether a safe venue could be found. “There will be no speech,” Coulter wrote in an email to Reuters on Wed­nes­day in which she also crit­i­cized two con­ser­va­tive groups who had orig­i­nally spon­sored the event, say­ing they were no longer sup­port­ing her. “I looked over my shoul­der and my al­lies had joined the other team,” she wrote. “I have no spon­sor, no lawyer, no court or­der,” she added. “I can’t vin­di­cate con­sti­tu­tional rights on my own. I was just sup­posed to give the speech.”
