UC Berkeley Chancellor Affirms Yiannopoulos' Right to Speak

Hat tip The College Fix and Daily Californian


Out-going UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks, in a rare display of gumption, has announced that he will not cancel the up-coming appearance of conservative pundit Milo Yiannapoulos despite  requests from many professors that he do so.

I hope the campus cops have plenty of officers available to keep order. It's going to be areal lollapalooza.

Sure. He has as much right to speak as Collin had to march in Skokie. Besides, letting him talk is the surest way of discrediting the campus Republicans for inviting the fool. But also, anyone who tries to shut him down or intimidate people who want to hear him, should be arrested, tried, and if convicted, sentenced.

Actually, Milo gets rave reviews from his audiences while the lefties sit outside and scream. Who do you think looks bad?

If the so-called "lefties" would shut up, then everyone would get to hear the man speak. And outside the cult following that invited him, he'd look ridiculous. That's why the protests are counter-productive.

It's not a cult. It's the College Republicans. (No wise cracks, pls)
