Conservative activist Ann Coulter canceled her speech at the University of California at Berkeley.
Leftist students and others have promised massive protests if she speaks, and authorities have warned that they might not be able to prevent violence. This resulted in a decision by the Young America’s Foundation, a Republican student group, to pull out of the event, a move that Coulter blamed for her decision to cancel.
Coulter said she may still show up on campus, begging the question of whether she will end up deciding to speak anyway.
The quashing of Coulter’s event is the latest effort by liberal students and others on the Left to shut down free speech by conservatives.
