Free Speech Under Assault in America

Here's a clip of Ann Coulter discussing her "The Show Must Go On" position on speaking at Berzerkley.

What's interesting is that there are a few principled leftists who are coming to her defence.

I was absolutely shocked to see Bernie Sanders among them! So, I must give a shout out to that crusty old Jewish commie!

I never thought I would ever hear myself say "kudos, Bernie", but these are strange times.

I'm not surprised that Bill Maher is defending her, he is also principled on this issue in partciular and many more-like Islam for example. I don't agree with him on a lot, but I certainly appreciate his willingness to discuss issues with people he completely disagrees with, and defend the right to do so. He is also absolutely right about this kind of violent, crybaby tyranny being akin to book-burning.

It will be very interesting to see what happens on campus on April 27 especially given how much we now know about Berkeley's mayor on these issues.
