Conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s April 27th appearance at the University of California in Berkeley was cancelled by the school, citing security concerns. She said she will deliver her speech at the school despite the ban. The group that invited Coulter believes she was banned because she demanded that UC Chancellor Janet Napolitano ask the Oakland police chief not to order his officers to stand-down if unrest ensued. Coulter also says that the school should warn students that violence and heckling will result in expulsion from school. Coulter says: “This is as clear-cut a case as it gets that public universities are using taxpayer dollars to shut down conservative speech, while allowing liberal speech only.” In a similar case this week, a federal judge in Alabama overruled Auburn University after it tried to ban Richard Spencer, a white nationalist, from speaking. –GEG
“…Coulter had agreed to a number of demands by the university — such as the speech would be delivered in the afternoon and only be open to students — while offering her own requests to be upheld by the university.
1) That the University of California chancellor request that the Oakland chief of police refrain from telling his men to stand down and ignore law-breaking by rioters attempting to shut down conservative speakers, as he has done in the past; and
2) That UC-Berkeley announce in advance that any students engaging in violence, mayhem or heckling to prevent an invited speaker from speaking would be expelled.

A California judge ruled that Twitter can be sued for advertising free speech and then banning users with whom they disagree. Twitter has frequently promised not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation, but it has frequently violated this promise, especially targeting conservatives. Twitter lost its argument that it has a first amendment right to ban whoever it likes from its platform, for whatever reason, and the case will move forward to set a precedent for social media.
