As the Berkeley Police Department gears up for yet another showdown between First Amendment supporters and violent "anti-fascists," questions have arisen regarding the mayor's ties to a local anti-fascist group. Ann Coulter vowed to move ahead with a planned speaking engagement at the university on Thursday after her speech was canceled due to security concerns.Has the American Left become so insecure that they resort to violence and intimidation whenever they are presented with differing viewpoints? Universities are exactly the proper place to explore differing viewpoints, practice tolerance, and challenge rigidely held beliefs. It seems that the folks from California have forgotten that.
That's a damned shame.
