    Full Title: UC Berkeley Student Leader: Police Protecting Campus Free Speech Brings ‘Trauma’ To Minorities A University of California student senator who deemed the cancelled Ann Coulter speech a “violent conversation” has complained the police presence on campus brings “trauma” to minority students. On Sunday, a student-run publication, The Daily Californian, published an article about the security measures UC Berkeley and the local police department took after the protest broke out last Thursday following the cancellation of Ann Coulter’s speech. According to the article, almost 300 police officers were present in order to prevent any potential violence.

    BERKELEY — Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, author of “In Trump We Trust” and other political-themed books, has accepted an invitation to speak at UC Berkeley on April 27, according to the sponsor of the event. The time and location have not been finalized, said Troy Worden, spokesman for the Berkeley College Republicans. Once those details are finalized, the event will be posted on Eventbrite, he said. Coulter will speak on the topic of illegal immigration, he added. The Coulter event would come just months after a scheduled appearance at UC Berkeley by former Breitbart news editor Milo Yiannopoulos was canceled...

    An act of vandalism at UC Berkeley has renewed political tensions for a conservative group on campus. The College Republicans say they feel increasingly threatened, and the latest incident in which a man destroyed the group's signs at its designated space in the university quad has the group raising red flags. On Wednesday, some members of the College Republicans said more needs to be done to protect their members and their property. The location of Tuesday's vandalism was at a place the group calls the Freedom Table. It's a designated space to promote their group and encourage respectful debate with...

    Tucker Carlson exposed Yvette Felarca, a national organizer for BAMN a radical activist group. BAMN was one of the biggest backers behind the UC Berkeley riots that shut down Milo from speaking. “A fascist is someone who’s organizing a mass movement that’s attacking women, immigrants, black people, other minority groups in a movement of genocide,” Felarca answered when asked to define a fascist. Felarca said her group would fight “by any means necessary,” referring to the group’s name BAMN, to “shut down” fascists. “What do you mean by shut down?” Carlson asked. “What if I want to keep talking? What...

    Organizers of the anti-Milo Yiannopoulos demonstration last week at UC Berkeley that ended in $100,000 worth of window-breaking chaos declared it a “stunningly successful” protest — one they’ll happily repeat if the right-wing provocateur tries to return to campus.

    Members and people with loose affiliations to the group have had their contact information stolen.Members of the student group that invited alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to UC Berkeley say they have been physically assaulted and targeted online in the days since Wednesday’s fiery protests. “We’re probably the most harassed group on campus right now,” said Naweed Tahmas, a member of the Berkeley College Republicans. He noted that the club needed a security detail for a meeting last Thursday, a sign that tensions between the group and the area's liberal-leaning majority may have hit an apex. “I’ve been spit on, my...

    Prosecute the Berkeley rioters by enforcing federal law The violent uprising at UC Berkeley last week, sparked by Milo Yiannopoulos’s Freedom Center-sponsored speech on “sanctuary campuses,” could have been put down by authorities by enforcing existing federal law, but they didn’t act. They let Berkeley burn.

    The Huffington Post ^ | February 5, 2017 | Bob Ostertag,
    The violence at the UC Berkeley campus Wednesday night which cancelled the speech of alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos is such a debacle for the national opposition to Trump that it almost defies belief. Consider the context. The Trump regime tells the media to “keep its mouth shut,” declares a “running war” against the press, and promotes “alternative facts.” Orders State Department personnel using a “dissent channel” created for the explicit purpose of allowing employees to voice dissenting views without fear of retribution that they should resign. Forbids the staff of various federal agencies from speaking in public either by press...

    A Berkeley middle school teacher who was accused of instigating a violent clash with neo-Nazis in Sacramento this summer is back at it, recorded in a deranged rant at a Berkeley protest against Milo Yiannopoulos shortly before violence erupted Wednesday. Yvette Felarca, a social studies teacher at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, attended a protest against Yiannopoulos’ scheduled speech at the University of California Berkeley Wednesday, when she spoke out against the Breitbart senior editor’s controversial views and called on protesters to prevent him from speaking “by any means necessary.” In a video posted to YouTube on Thursday, Felarca...

    BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- President Trump is striking a different tone in a tweet Friday following this week's violent protest in Berkeley. He said, "Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to make America great again!" On Thursday, the president slammed UC Berkeley in a tweet for the protest and threatened to pull federal funding to the nation's top public university. There were three arrests during Wednesday's protest. Campus police say none were students. One person was arrested for blocking officers trying to break up the skirmish. The two others...

    BERKELEY, Calif. .(KTVU) - U.C. Berkeley Police officers were standing by Thursday evening, for the weekly meeting of the Berkeley College Republicans. It is the organization that invited alt-right firebrand Milo Yiannopolous to campus the night before. His appearance was cancelled when organized agitators invaded a peaceful protest, setting fires and breaking windows at the Student Union venue. "Milo had a right to speak, Milo should have been allowed to speak," declared club President Jose Diaz, to an overflow club meeting of some thirty students, some spilling into the hall. UCB estimated the campus property damage at $100,000. But the...
