Should the reason WHY it was cancelled have any bearing?

When the New Black Panthers stood outside polling stations with baseball bats, only a fraction of the country seemed bothered by it, and i was blown away by the complacency.

This time, im not so shocked by it. The sword is obviously once again mightier than the pen. At lesat among the educated in California.

"Voluntary silencing of your own free speech isn't the same as someone taking your free speech away from you."
This is an odd concept to point out.
I've got one for you cognitive dissonance is not the same thing as critical thinking.

Personally, I would prefer that liberal return to its roots, ie the classical liberalism that the Founders advocated. But the term has been hijacked by the social progressive that want to unravel the USA because 'socialist' and 'progressive' left a bad taste in people's mouths. Maybe because of Bernie Sander's 'democratic socialism' they will let it go, time will tell.

In the meantime I just call what you are talking about 'classical liberalism' which is a wordier version of 'conservatism'. The GOP has not hijacked the term, they just added 'compassionate' in front during the 2000's.


Sorry but no. You guys did that to your own selves by using Liberal describe everything left of center.

Not really, highly speculative at best. Or do you have anything tangible at hand with regards to said 'threats of violence'? No? Aha. So someone called or whatnot, could have been anybody then.

All I see are a bunch of lazy excuses from the real idiots in charge. Ya know... the folks with the job to ensure security and savety for everyone involved. You don't have a police force capable of deescalating this snowflakery? Bummer.

What's their real mission then, igniting a civil war or locking up pot smokers only? Every fricken AFD vs Antifa clash in Germany has to be managed by the police, you need some Krautish specialists to help you out with this sort of emotionalized democracy brought to the streets?

Man... that will offend your big Murican ego. Sorry... not.

Some of them are peaceful?


In the US... yes, obviously.

Exactly, clearly the law is being broken on both sides, what is the deal with not arresting people?

UC Berkeley should be ashamed of itself all around. In the first place for accepting money from Conservative orgs. such as Koch funded groups to pay the speakers fees despite overwhelming rejection from the student body AND by now they ought to see that people like Coulter are going to be met with severe resistance if not violence, they took the gig, hire the amount and degree of security warranted.

Ann Coulter is not a conservative. She is an agitator and a divider. She preaches a message of hate, and condones violence (as long as its "conservatives" doing the violence.)


Maybe the left should stop being so unstable.

That mere pebble thrown in the ocean would create such a tsumani.

a reply to: DBCowboy>>>> Score one for the fascists. But even though Ms. Coulter couldn't speak, Nancy Pelosi tried to speak and garbled her words unintelligibly in a speech.

That sadly is how some of people in the world see us. Trump certainly doesn't help.


Of the many,many names I have been called over the years.

'Murica is the least offensive.

Geezus.

Nobody is making anybody do anything, Coulter included. I have to really doubt the convictions of someone who silences their own speech because of fear.


I doubt fear had anything to do with it. Most likely pressure from university officials who didn't want another expensive mess to clean up after another liberal left tantrum.

I very much doubt the university officials care about any mess that's left over. If they did, they'd make some effort to keep protests from turning into riots, and wouldn't go on TV smirking about it after it happened.

University police leaders and the university administration don't give two poops about dealing with a mess.

No, your right, I was obviously making a broad generalization when I say left. That's what it's come to around here, it's just a lot easier to make a point and it's up to the reader to discern what I mean, and let's be honest, everyone should understand this. I don't mean to offend everyone on the left.

And everything I said in this thread was only in response to somebody else.

I reckon it was called off due to illness, we all know Ann suffers from foot in mouth disease and we know contagious that is.

But if your personal safety is at risk then fine and then you need to school those with malicious intents and teach them the purpose of a peaceful protest. Squirting shirts with bottles of ketchup? not helpful but not violent, my solution is words, I'm learning to speak before acting and if someone who solved his problems by punching things can achieve it at least once i'd like to think we can all do it.

Another meaningless, off-topic, generalization. Anything on Ann Coulter, UC Berkeley or Free Speech?

Expect something else from a meaningless,gross generalization post to begin with ?

When your palm gets tired of hanging on your face ... perhaps think your post through before posting next time.

You made a hyper-partsian post, complaining about hyper-partisans.

In this post, you complain about some sort of generally perceived lack of discussing "opposing ideals" ... yet, you started out here, clearly damning liberals and Progressives (as well as confusing the two, as well as making blatantly untrue statements.)

Your complaints are drowned out by your hypocrisy.
