Violent Protests Force Cancellation Of Breitbart Editor's Speech

Violent Protests Break Out UC Berkeley

Protestors watch a bonefire on Sproul Plaza during a rally against the scheduled speaking appearance by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos on the University of California at Berkeley campus on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017, in Berkeley, Calif. "Free speech should be something we own". Conservatives are generally uncomfortable with street protests and rallies - it takes every fiber of our being to march and, when we do - like we did with the Tea Party movement - we don't dress in black, we don't wear black balaclavas to hide our faces, we do not arm ourselves with Molotov cocktails, and we never smash the storefronts of banks and small businesses.

UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said the university has not heard from student groups about inviting Yiannopoulos back to campus.

"If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view - NO FEDERAL FUNDS?" the President wrote.

"It doesn't work that way", Napolitano said after Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Costa Mesa (Orange County), suggested in December that federal funds should be withheld from UC because Napolitano - the former secretary of homeland security under President Barack Obama - issued a statement saying UC would not help federal officials pursue students in the country without documentation.

He made a decision to self-sabotage the event to bring attention to himself and frame the university for squelching the free speech rights of conservatives.

According to Berkeley's 2014-2015 annual financial report, the most recent posted on its website, the university received $417.3 million in federal grants and contracts, plus an additional $39.4 million in Pell grants for students during 2015.

Texas governor says securing border shouldn't harm trade
The DHS head talked about another recent controversy too - the rocky rollout of the travel ban from seven Muslim-majority countries.

The 32-year-old Briton is probably best known for inciting a campaign of online abuse against the African-American "Ghostbusters" actress Leslie Jones.

In a statement following the event, the College Republicans group said it was disappointed about what happened, and called it a "shame" protesters couldn't "be respectful of McInnes".

"There are things that if a president really wanted to punish some particular college they could influence those decisions but it would take a long time and there would be a lot of reaction", said Shireman, a senior fellow at the Century Foundation. Donald Trump, when he says Berkeley...doesn't respect free speech rights, that's a...complete distortion of the truth.

"He's a provocateur", Maher said of Yiannopoulos.

"You know, I can't say this strongly enough", she told her co-hosts.

The firebrand delights in challenging political correctness and attacking radical Islam and feminism, and his campus speeches generally draw loud protests by students and others on the left who try to shout him down or have him banned altogether.
