    What are the wildly different implications? In both cases the police are saying it isn't safe, if you want to bean count some sort of totalitarian thing out of the way I put it in a Sherdog post, then I suggest you start drinking earlier in the day and mellow out.

    Throwing bricks and M80s into a crowd of people doesn't make you a 'goofball'. You could blow off someone's hand or seriously injured someone. If the police refuse to step in, do you just expect people to take it?

    So? Bringing a gun to an expected public confrontation doesn't make you a "yahoo" either, but I used that word too. You could blow off somebody's nipples with that thing. How dare I call them yahoos. Are you really going to fucking whine because I'm using a mean enough word for one group of people? Go be a shadow ffs.

    There's no reason to get testy here.
    I was referring to the brawling, not bringing a gun and shooting people. Throwing bricks and explosives into a crowd warrants retaliation.

    Berkeley reverses decision to cancel speech by conservative pundit Ann Coulter
    By William Wan and Susan Svrluga April 20​


    Officials at the University of California at Berkeley on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel a speech by conservative firebrand Ann Coulter.

    The university had previously announced Wednesday that it was canceling Coulter’s appearance following several political protests in Berkeley that turned violent. But on Thursday, the university said it had found a venue where it could hold the speech on a different day, May 2, instead of the original April 27 date.

    Coulter and the group arranging her event said they are rejecting the new invitation.

    In a series of tweets Thursday night, Coulter criticized the university, saying Berkeley officials were adding “burdensome” conditions to her speech. She said she had already spent money to hold the event on the original April 27 date and is not available May 2. She also pointed out that May 2 would coincide with a reading period before final exams, when there are no classes on campus and a fewer students around.

    And she vowed that she is going to speak in Berkeley on the originally planned April 27 date, whether the university approved or not.



    The decision to cancel Coulter’s speech came drew sharp criticism from some on the campus, such as Robert Reich, a Berkeley professor who served as labor secretary under President Bill Clinton.

    “This is a grave mistake,” Reich said in a Facebook post. He said universities should “do everything possible to foster and protect” free speech, writing that students should be allowed to hear Coulter’s arguments and question them.



    “It’s one thing to cancel an address at the last moment because university and local police are not prepared to contain violence. … It’s another thing entirely to cancel an address before it is given, when police have adequate time to prepare for such eventualities,” he said.

    Came here to share this but hadn't seen the Robert Reich part. Proud of him for saying it was wrong to cancel.

    Looks to be, but you can call it "tentative" as a coping measure if you need to.

    Off topic, but Tucker looked even more like a Muppet here than usual.

    Professor Robert Reich's post gave me hope for Berkeley for a moment there.

    Then I scroll down to read the Berkeley students' response below his post and I'm back to reality again.

    The girl who propose that invited Guest Speakers like Milo and Coulter should be forced to put down a $50,000 deposit to cover any damages to the school caused by rioters is particularly hilarious.

    I had ZERO interest in her speech, but this PR campaign by neo marxists has peaked my interest. Now I want to hear what she has to say.
