‘What Are They Going to Do? Arrest Me?’: Coulter Says She’ll Attend Cancelled Berkeley Speech

Conservative author Ann Coulter said she would speak at the University of California-Berkeley, even though the administration canceled the event.

“I called their bluff,” Coulter said, referring to her decision to agree to several unusual rules the university put forth to prevent “violence” at the event.

She said she will be showing up on campus on Thursday, despite the cancellation.

“What are they going to do? Arrest me?” she asked.

Coulter said she agreed to all of the rules, which included speaking in the daytime and at a location to be determined closer to the Thursday speech, but was canceled-on at the last minute.

Berkeley was previously the site of violent riots that cut short an event headlined by right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos in February.

Tucker Carlson criticized the school for claiming they respected the First Amendment while deciding to strip Coulter of her’s.

Coulter advised Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into the matter, since she was “unconstitutionally banned” from speaking.

She said former Mexican President Vicente Fox, a critic of President Trump, received no push-back or demands to change event rules when he spoke there.
