Ann Coulter condemns Berkeley protestors who have committed "viewpoint discrimination" and hurt her reputation. Coulter talked to Sean Hannity about the monetary damage done to her -- hotel and security costs -- and the result a "beta male" can do with a weapon to a 99-pound woman.
Berkeley canceled Coulter's speech to the university, then decided to reschedule it to another date at another venue. Coulter has said she will deliver her speech on the date that was originally set as the new date would coincide with a period of time where students would not be on campus. Coulter referred to the contract she made with the University to explain her decision to hold the speech on the original date. From her Thursday night appearance on the FOX News Channel:
ANN COULTER: None of this has to do with security. After acceding to all their requirements, which were also arbitrary and silly, and they claimed it was on the basis of safety, I suggested two measures that actually would allow free speech to exist on Berkeley, if they wanted it to. And that was one thing to announce that any students caught engaging in violence, mayhem, or disrupting an invited speaker's speech would be expelled and number two, to have a little talk with the Berkeley chief of police, who is allowing these Rodney King riots to go on whenever conservative speaker speaks...
It is anarchy when you are only enforcing the law in order to allow liberals to speak. But, no, we'll let these masked rioters show up with weapons and start -- I mean, they are all little beta males but with a weapon, even a beta male can do some damage, especially to a 99-pound girl.
To have them stepping in, those private individuals, according to courts, are acting under color of state law. And for the police to refuse to protect even offensive speech and by the way, I'm the author of 12 New York Times best sellers. This has damaged my reputation for them to be acting like I'm David Duke out there. But courts have found, even somebody out burning an American flag, the police cannot stand by and let skinheads beat them up. That is viewpoint discrimination. And they are all libel.
GOOD NEWS FOR CA TAXPAYER! You won't be required to pay $$$$ to compensate me & my crew for rebooked airfare & hotels. I'm speaking on 4/27. https://t.co/gsScwzeDNM— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) April 20, 2017
