Free Speech Wins! UC Berkeley Reverses Decision to Block Ben Shapiro Event
This civil rights victory is likely the result of pressure from threats of legal action from the Young American's Foundation, the Berkeley College Republicans and of course, Shapiro himself.
However, UC Berkeley seems to be taking a new stance in its course of action and promised that not only would Shapiro speak, the state-funded school would also pay for the event if necessary. Hopefully this will also include plenty of police and security personnel lined up for the potential turn-out of crazed Anti-fa rioters.
Across the twitter-sphere, sentiments are already strong:
He can shut down the whole damn school with promises to show up quarterly and the retarded administration will stay the course.— Coming in hot (@mrjasonfoster) July 21, 2017
Updated: Ben Shapiro will speak at Berkeley after all— Funkytown (@hotfunkytown) July 21, 2017
Trump should send in the National Guard to protect Ben & put the university on notice
Cover event fees? Damn you guys pulled one over on Berkeley. Is this 1st amendment under attack shtick a new business model?— Dustin Carpenter (@Dkc722) July 21, 2017
To all conservatives planning on attending Ben Shapiro's event on September 14, we wish you well and hope you enjoy a quiet, uneventful evening.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
