COUL­TER CAN­CELS HER SPEECH AT BERKE­LEY

Metro USA (New York) - - News -

3Con­ser­va­tive 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.”
