Bernie Sanders Condemns Threats Against Ann Coulter Speech at Berkeley

Bernie Sanders Condemns Threats Against Ann Coulter Speech at Berkeley | 22 April 2017 | Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) criticized the security threats to a speaking event by conservative pundit Ann Coulter at the University of California, Berkeley that prompted the school to postpone the talk. "I don't like this. I don't like it," Sanders told The Huffington Post after speaking at a rally for Omaha mayoral candidate Heath Mello on Thursday night. "Obviously Ann Coulter's outrageous -- to my mind, off the wall. But you know, people have a right to give their two cents-worth, give a speech, without fear of violence and intimidation...To me, it's a sign of intellectual weakness." University officials on Tuesday night informed Berkeley’s College Republicans, who invited Coulter to speak, that the April 27 event would need to be rescheduled due to concerns that her speech would set off violent protests and make it difficult to maintain campus security.
