Mayor of Berkeley: The University Should Cancel Free Speech Week Because Leftists Might Riot
This is unadulterated garbage.
Rather than affirming that fundamental constitutional rights will be upheld and protected in his city, Arreguin is blaming the victims and using the crimes of the Left to justify silencing the Right.
It’s skin-crawlingly disgusting to witness an elected government official explicitly urging another group of government officials (the administration of a public institution) to trample the First Amendment rights of citizens — especially because a separate group of citizens refuses to abide by the law.
As far as we know, at least one of the planned “provocations” (conservative speech is now considered dangerous riot-incitement in the Bay Area) is still scheduled to move forward, following a failed cancellation attempt.
Now that the press is starting to catch up on this scourge, when will they start to hold elected Democrats accountable?
