Milo Yiannopoulos talk at CSUF lures supporters, protesters …

Supporters and protesters of Milo Yiannopoulos sparred verbally, and in a few cases physically, at Cal State Fullerton on Halloween night as theconservative provocateur spoke to a sold-out crowd of more than 800 students and others.

Outside, the mood was tense, and at least 8 were arrested by the time the speech began for such offenses as scuffling, campus officials said.

Campus spokesperson Jeffrey Cook said Wednesday, Nov. 1, that all of them were released except three, two of which were cited and told to disperse and one who was arrested and booked.

Before Yiannopoulos took the stage, a couple of hundred people gathered outside the Titan Student Union as law enforcement officers in riot gear stood monitoring nearby. Protesters chanted slogans such as Fascists go home! and held signs that read, CSU students say no to Milo and his fascist entourage.

Protesters and supporters confronted each other. At one point people were pepper-sprayed by others among an unruly crowd.

Inside the Titan Student Union, Yiannopoulos was greeted with a standing ovation before taking jabs at political correctness and celebrities in the name of free speech.

He was cheered when criticizing identity politics, supporting free speech and the First Amendment, and saying he is an activist in favor of the law I just want it enforced.

With a coffin set up onstage, and the word Hollywood splayed out inside the open lid, the outspoken media personality poked at various celebrities under a cloud of sexual-harassment allegations, including actor Kevin Spacey, who was accused this week of sexually accosting actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was 14 years old.Spacey has said he doesnt recall the incident and has apologized if it happened while he was drunk.

Halloween is the only day when 14-year-olds willingly go to Kevin Spaceys house, Yiannopoulos joked.

The history of Halloween and public controversy over certain costumes formed a major theme in Yiannopoulos talk.

Only one I havent been able to find a sexy version of is Michele Obama, he said. Maybe because no one is ever attracted to transsexuals.

Earlier in the day before Yiannopoulos went onstage, a couple of hundred people gathered outside the Student Union. Protesters chanted Fascists go home! and other slogans and held signs that read, CSU students say no to Milo and his fascist entourage, and From Charlottesville to the White House, dismantle white supremacy.

Officers watched the crowd with binoculars from the roof of the building, and campus police in riot gear at one point rushed a group of protesters to clear them from a grassy area.Attendees, barred from carrying in purses or backpacks, were put through two rounds of security checks.

Bomb-sniffing dogs swept the area before the event and remained on hand, and 11 mounted police officers helped control the crowd,Cal State Fullerton Police Capt. Scot Willey said. Various police agencies lent a hand.

Trent Peauchamp, a protester and self-described street medic, said he used distilled water to treat three people who had been pepper-sprayed by others in the crowd.

Shouting Up, up, up with people! Down, down, down with Trump! more than 150 protesters marched at one point from outside the campus bookstore along State College Boulevard to Dorothy Boulevard and stopped about a block from where the speech would be given. Fences kept anyone without a ticket from entering the area.

We want Milo to hear us! a protester shouted into a megaphone while drivers beeped their horns in approval.

Among those who came to hear Yiannopoulos wereJimmy Stacy, 42, and his daughter, Alexis, 15, who traveled from Michigan. In addition to their plane tickets and accommodations, the Stacys coughed up an extra $150 apiece for a special meet-and-greet before the talk.

I just love him, Jimmy Stacy said. Hes on point and tells it like it is.

His teenage daughter nodded.

I want to be a political commentator because of Milo, she said.

After the event, attendees said they enjoyed Yiannopouloss humor and straight-forwardness.

Hes a showman, said Patrick McGoldrick, 46, of El Segundo. He does a good job on spending part of his time on comedy and part of it on serious issues.

Byron Lopez, a student at Santa Ana College, said he hopes to transfer to Cal State Fullerton and doesnt want to see people such as Yiannopoulos given a platform.

He peddles alt-right ideas that are inherently dangerous, Lopez said. You look back to Nazi Germany and fascist Italy, this is how it all began. You have to stop fascism now when its still disorganized.

A man wearing a red baseball cap with President Donald Trumps name on the back and a bow tie was shoved by a protester while encircled by a large, unruly crowd. Another protester was pepper-sprayed by someone in the group.

Laurinda Claus of Orange said she came in support of free speech.

Hes not alt-right, she said. Hes gay. Hes Jewish. Hes married to a black man. Why do we have to label him?

The Cal State Fullerton talk, in which the audience paid $35 apiece, kicks off the new college speaking tour of the former senior editor of the right-wing Breitbart news service. The Troll Academy tour next takes him to six stops in Australia.

The schools College Republicans said their goal in inviting Yiannopoulos to campus was to shine a light on the issue of free speech, said Brooke Paz, the clubs spokeswoman.Some conservative college students complain that their voices are suppressed as politically incorrect.

At UCLA last year, protesters tried to block attendees from entering the venue andYiannopoulos talk ended with police sweeping the area following a bomb threat. At UC Irvine last year, two visits were mostly peaceful but the first one in June attracted some 50 mostly angry protesters. At UC Berkeley, his speech was canceled in February hours after a mob ignited small fires with Molotov cocktails.

When the Fullerton talk ended,audience members, some wearing red Make America Great Again hats and chanting President Trumps name, spilled out and were surrounded by protesters shouting their own slogans.

After giving a warning, police in riot gear moved in and officers in a California Highway Patrol helicopter ordered the crowd to disperse.

About an hour after Yiannopoulos finished his speech, the campus finally fell silent.

Mattel Virtue Signals For Islam With Jihad Barbie MILO NEWS

The new Barbie is modeled after U.S. fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first American to compete in the Olympics while wearing a head-scarfas if that that alone were worthy of commendation. Muhammads personal accolades aside, Mattel describes the toy as a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll designed to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries.

Muhammad thanked the toy company for announcing her as the companys newest model. Im proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true, she wrote.

The jihad Barbie is the latest in Mattels lineup of diverse dolls called Sheroes, which are based on real-life women. Other dolls include Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas; plus-size model Ashley Graham, a proponent of body positivity and health at every size; and animal rights activist and actress Emmy Rossum.

Earlier this year, Muslim-American activist Linda Sarsour called for a jihad against President Trump. I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House, she said.

Strangely, progressives never talk about the Iranian women who rip off their headscarves in protest of the Islamic Republics oppression of womenor the chess grandmaster Dorsa Derakhansi, who defected to the U.S. after she was banned from the Iranian national team for her refusal to wear the hijab.

Like most Muslim countries in the Middle East, Islamic law in Iran requires women to wear the hijab in public places. Failure to do so often merits corporal punishment from a guardian or male relativeor a black eye, in other words, in accordance with fundamentalist interpretations of the Koran.

So much for choice.

Trump pick for top UN position praised Milo Yiannopoulos …

PatrickMurray, a former Army officer and two-time congressional candidate, wasnominated by Trumpin May to be thealternate representative for special political affairstothe United Nations. Murray’s nominationwas approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committeein Augustand he awaits full Senate confirmation.

If confirmed, Murray would serve under Ambassador Nikki Haley in representing US interests at the United Nations and would act as a fill-in for Haley in representing the US to the United Nations General Assembly when she is unavailable.

Murray did not return request for comment. The State Department declined to comment.

In one of the articles shared by Murray, Yiannopoulos writes about a plan Trump proposed to screen incoming immigrants for their “commitment to Western values,” saying, “The test will apply to all immigrants, yet its obvious target is Muslims, who, as we know, get a bit bomby in the presence of gays, a bit rapey in the presence of women who wear skirts shorter than their ankles and generally a bit hostile and violent around anyone who doesn’t have their bum in the air five times a day.”

In one post, Murray defended Yiannopoulos after he was banned from Twitter for harassingSaturday Night Live performer and Ghostbusters actressLeslie Jones with a barrageofoffensive tweets. Yiannopoulos had written a review of Ghostbusters that was seen as inciting harassment against Jones, in which he wrote that the move was “full of female characters that are simply stand-ins for men plus a black character worthy of a minstrel show.”

In other posts on Facebook in 2015 and 2016, Murray shared the kind of provocative political memes that were popular among supporters of Trump during the election.Murrayshared an imagedefending rancher Cliven Bundy, who was jailed and is awaiting trial for his role in the 2014 Bundy standoff against the federal government, and blastingRev.Al Sharpton as a “life-long race baiter.”

Murray added his own caption, “Hey Kaitlyn (sic), you make my knees wobble!”

“I’m sensing some micro aggression out there,” wrote Murray.

Milo Yiannopoulos’ ‘Free Speech Week’ At Berkeley Falls Apart …

After days of uncertainty, an event at the University of California, Berkeley, touted as “Free Speech Week” by organizers including far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos has been canceled. Seth Wenig/AP hide caption

After days of uncertainty, an event at the University of California, Berkeley, touted as “Free Speech Week” by organizers including far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos has been canceled.

Updated at 6:15 p.m. ET

“Free Speech Week,” a four-day, right-wing rally at the University of California, Berkeley, has been called off, student organizers of the event tell member station KQED.

Another organizer, controversial far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos, will reportedly hold a press conference on Saturday formally canceling the event, which was scheduled to start Sunday. A spokesperson for Yiannopoulos told KQED on Friday that he “couldn’t confirm” the event would happen.

The event fell apart after the co-organizers The Berkeley Patriot, an online publication, and Yiannopoulos failed to confirm the guest list and book multiple indoor venues on campus.

Tensions and confusion mounted this week ahead of the event, which organizers said was planned in response to Berkeley’s efforts to shut down conservative speakers.

A fierce debate about free speech on campus ignited in February when the university canceled an appearance by former Breitbart editor Yiannopoulos because of security concerns.

Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Trump, and conservative commentator Ann Coulter were reportedly scheduled to speak at this weekend’s event, but their appearances were never confirmed. Coulter had also been scheduled to appear at Berkeley in April, but her speech was abruptly canceled and protests followed.

The confusion around whether Bannon and Coulter would appear is “part of the whole chaos” in the runup to the Berkeley event, said John Sepulvado, host of KQED’s The California Report.

“It is part of the M.O. of these activities … to be as confusing and disorienting as possible,” Sepulvado told Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson earlier this week.

Since Yiannopoulos’ appearance was canceled earlier this year, students and right-wing groups have criticized Berkeley widely considered to be one of the centers of the free speech movement in the 1960s for shutting down conservative speech. Berkeley officials say the school is committed to preserving free speech but at the same time must protect safety on campus.

Yiannopoulos posted a YouTube video this week saying the university is using “slippery and bureaucratic tactics” to try to prevent the event from happening.

The university did not try to cancel the event outright, as Yiannopoulos suggests, but a group of about 130 professors, graduate students and lecturers called for a boycott of classes and university events next week.

An open letter argued that many students, faculty and staff would feel unsafe at school because of the anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay rhetoric of many of the speakers. They also expressed fears that there might be an “uncontrollable confrontation” during the week.

What about the legality of such rhetoric? Hate speech is protected under the First Amendment, in part because there isn’t a legal definition of it, says Santa Clara University law professor Margaret Russell.

A person can only be prosecuted for a specific crime associated with the hate speech but not the speech on its own, she explains.

“I think the law is pretty clear, at least to the extent that hate speech is not considered, by itself, to be unprotected under the First Amendment,” Russell told Hobson in February. “So, if people want to enact laws or if people want to prosecute people who violate the law, the prosecution can’t be based on the viewpoint of the person. It has to be based on the underlying crime.”

The free speech debate has grown more contentious in light of the growing number of nationwide protests since Trump took office. In August, a woman was killed after a group of white supremacists and neo-Nazis at a “Unite the Right” rally violently clashed with counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Va.

Sepulvado of KQED says it’s no coincidence the far-right is using Berkeley one of the most liberal cities in the U.S. as the center of this debate.

“It’s become a center of far-right speech because the far-right has taken the tactic and Milo Yiannopoulos being the prime example of essentially trolling people who wouldn’t want to hear it and that’s what this is,” Sepulvado said. “When I talked to Berkeley Patriot, and I said, you know, ‘What is the academic value of having Ann Coulter or Milo Yiannopoulos speak on campus?’ They say there isn’t any. They are the first to acknowledge that there is no academic value.”

Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns From Breitbart After … – NPR

Milo Yiannopoulos speaks during a news conference Tuesday in which he announced his resignation as a senior editor with Breitbart News. Mary Altaffer/AP hide caption

Milo Yiannopoulos speaks during a news conference Tuesday in which he announced his resignation as a senior editor with Breitbart News.

Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos has resigned amid a social media backlash over comments he made that appeared to condone pedophilia.

In a news conference Tuesday, Yiannopoulos said his resignation was effective immediately and praised the website as “a significant factor in my success.”

He also explained his views on sex with minors, insisting that he does not condone statutory rape.

“I do not believe any change in the legal age of consent is justifiable or desirable,” Yiannopoulos said. He was referring to comments in live-streamed interviews more than a year ago in which he said, “We get hung up on this kind of child abuse stuff,” and referenced, “this arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent.”

“I said some things on those Internet live streams that were simply wrong,” he said Tuesday.

He also said that he had been sexually abused as a child.

Yiannopoulos’ resignation comes one day after he lost both a prominent speaking gig at a conservative meeting and a book deal.

As The Two Way reported:

“First, Monday afternoon the American Conservative Union rescinded its invitation to the right-wing provocateur noted for his political posts on the Internet to speak at its annual Conservative Political Action Conference this upcoming weekend. Then, a few hours later, Simon & Schuster announced that it was canceling the publication of Yiannopoulos’ upcoming book, Dangerous.

“These actions come in the wake of a social media backlash against Yiannopoulos after the conservative news outlet The Reagan Battalion tweeted videos on Sunday in which Yiannopoulos appears to condone statutory rape and sexual relationships between boys and men.”

Yiannopoulos had tried to clarify his comments Monday on Facebook, defending his remarks and referencing his own sexual history while also blaming his own “sloppy phrasing” and “deceptive” video editing.

He said Tuesday that other publishers had expressed interest in his book, and that he expected it to be published this year. He also said he was founding an “independently funded media venture” and would be going on a “live tour in the coming weeks,” including appearances on college campuses.

Earlier this month, a Yiannopoulos speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley was canceled after students protests turned violent.

Outside, the mood was tense, and at least 8 were arrested by the time the speech began for such offenses as scuffling, campus officials said. Campus spokesperson Jeffrey Cook said Wednesday, Nov. 1, that all of them were released except three, two of which were cited and told to disperse and one who was arrested and booked. Before Yiannopoulos took the stage, a couple of hundred people gathered outside the Titan Student Union as law enforcement officers in riot gear stood monitoring nearby. Protesters chanted slogans such as Fascists go home! and held signs that read, CSU students say no to Milo and his fascist entourage.

(Photo by BILL ALKOFER, Orange County Register/SCNG) Protesters and supporters confronted each other. At one point people were pepper-sprayed by others among an unruly crowd. Inside the Titan Student Union, Yiannopoulos was greeted with a standing ovation before taking jabs at political correctness and celebrities in the name of free speech. He was cheered when criticizing identity politics, supporting free speech and the First Amendment, and saying he is an activist in favor of the law I just want it enforced. With a coffin set up onstage, and the word Hollywood splayed out inside the open lid, the outspoken media personality poked at various celebrities under a cloud of sexual-harassment allegations, including actor Kevin Spacey, who was accused this week of sexually accosting actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was 14 years old.Spacey has said he doesnt recall the incident and has apologized if it happened while he was drunk. Halloween is the only day when 14-year-olds willingly go to Kevin Spaceys house, Yiannopoulos joked. The history of Halloween and public controversy over certain costumes formed a major theme in Yiannopoulos talk. Only one I havent been able to find a sexy version of is Michele Obama, he said. Maybe because no one is ever attracted to transsexuals. Earlier in the day before Yiannopoulos went onstage, a couple of hundred people gathered outside the Student Union. Protesters chanted Fascists go home! and other slogans and held signs that read, CSU students say no to Milo and his fascist entourage, and From Charlottesville to the White House, dismantle white supremacy. Officers watched the crowd with binoculars from the roof of the building, and campus police in riot gear at one point rushed a group of protesters to clear them from a grassy area.Attendees, barred from carrying in purses or backpacks, were put through two rounds of security checks. Bomb-sniffing dogs swept the area before the event and remained on hand, and 11 mounted police officers helped control the crowd,Cal State Fullerton Police Capt. Scot Willey said. Various police agencies lent a hand. Trent Peauchamp, a protester and self-described street medic, said he used distilled water to treat three people who had been pepper-sprayed by others in the crowd. Shouting Up, up, up with people! Down, down, down with Trump! more than 150 protesters marched at one point from outside the campus bookstore along State College Boulevard to Dorothy Boulevard and stopped about a block from where the speech would be given. Fences kept anyone without a ticket from entering the area. We want Milo to hear us! a protester shouted into a megaphone while drivers beeped their horns in approval. Among those who came to hear Yiannopoulos wereJimmy Stacy, 42, and his daughter, Alexis, 15, who traveled from Michigan. In addition to their plane tickets and accommodations, the Stacys coughed up an extra $150 apiece for a special meet-and-greet before the talk. I just love him, Jimmy Stacy said. Hes on point and tells it like it is. His teenage daughter nodded. I want to be a political commentator because of Milo, she said. After the event, attendees said they enjoyed Yiannopouloss humor and straight-forwardness. Hes a showman, said Patrick McGoldrick, 46, of El Segundo. He does a good job on spending part of his time on comedy and part of it on serious issues. Byron Lopez, a student at Santa Ana College, said he hopes to transfer to Cal State Fullerton and doesnt want to see people such as Yiannopoulos given a platform. He peddles alt-right ideas that are inherently dangerous, Lopez said. You look back to Nazi Germany and fascist Italy, this is how it all began. You have to stop fascism now when its still disorganized. A man wearing a red baseball cap with President Donald Trumps name on the back and a bow tie was shoved by a protester while encircled by a large, unruly crowd. Another protester was pepper-sprayed by someone in the group. Laurinda Claus of Orange said she came in support of free speech. Hes not alt-right, she said. Hes gay. Hes Jewish. Hes married to a black man. Why do we have to label him? The Cal State Fullerton talk, in which the audience paid $35 apiece, kicks off the new college speaking tour of the former senior editor of the right-wing Breitbart news service. The Troll Academy tour next takes him to six stops in Australia. The schools College Republicans said their goal in inviting Yiannopoulos to campus was to shine a light on the issue of free speech, said Brooke Paz, the clubs spokeswoman.Some conservative college students complain that their voices are suppressed as politically incorrect. At UCLA last year, protesters tried to block attendees from entering the venue andYiannopoulos talk ended with police sweeping the area following a bomb threat. At UC Irvine last year, two visits were mostly peaceful but the first one in June attracted some 50 mostly angry protesters. At UC Berkeley, his speech was canceled in February hours after a mob ignited small fires with Molotov cocktails. When the Fullerton talk ended,audience members, some wearing red Make America Great Again hats and chanting President Trumps name, spilled out and were surrounded by protesters shouting their own slogans. After giving a warning, police in riot gear moved in and officers in a California Highway Patrol helicopter ordered the crowd to disperse. About an hour after Yiannopoulos finished his speech, the campus finally fell silent. Staff writer Alma Fausto contributed to this report.

Mattel Virtue Signals For Islam With Jihad Barbie MILO NEWS

Share Share Share Email The new Barbie is modeled after U.S. fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first American to compete in the Olympics while wearing a head-scarfas if that that alone were worthy of commendation. Muhammads personal accolades aside, Mattel describes the toy as a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll designed to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries. Muhammad thanked the toy company for announcing her as the companys newest model. Im proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true, she wrote. The jihad Barbie is the latest in Mattels lineup of diverse dolls called Sheroes, which are based on real-life women. Other dolls include Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas; plus-size model Ashley Graham, a proponent of body positivity and health at every size; and animal rights activist and actress Emmy Rossum. Earlier this year, Muslim-American activist Linda Sarsour called for a jihad against President Trump. I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House, she said. Strangely, progressives never talk about the Iranian women who rip off their headscarves in protest of the Islamic Republics oppression of womenor the chess grandmaster Dorsa Derakhansi, who defected to the U.S. after she was banned from the Iranian national team for her refusal to wear the hijab. Like most Muslim countries in the Middle East, Islamic law in Iran requires women to wear the hijab in public places. Failure to do so often merits corporal punishment from a guardian or male relativeor a black eye, in other words, in accordance with fundamentalist interpretations of the Koran. So much for choice.

Trump pick for top UN position praised Milo Yiannopoulos …

PatrickMurray, a former Army officer and two-time congressional candidate, wasnominated by Trumpin May to be thealternate representative for special political affairstothe United Nations. Murray’s nominationwas approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committeein Augustand he awaits full Senate confirmation. If confirmed, Murray would serve under Ambassador Nikki Haley in representing US interests at the United Nations and would act as a fill-in for Haley in representing the US to the United Nations General Assembly when she is unavailable. Murray did not return request for comment. The State Department declined to comment. In one of the articles shared by Murray, Yiannopoulos writes about a plan Trump proposed to screen incoming immigrants for their “commitment to Western values,” saying, “The test will apply to all immigrants, yet its obvious target is Muslims, who, as we know, get a bit bomby in the presence of gays, a bit rapey in the presence of women who wear skirts shorter than their ankles and generally a bit hostile and violent around anyone who doesn’t have their bum in the air five times a day.” In one post, Murray defended Yiannopoulos after he was banned from Twitter for harassingSaturday Night Live performer and Ghostbusters actressLeslie Jones with a barrageofoffensive tweets. Yiannopoulos had written a review of Ghostbusters that was seen as inciting harassment against Jones, in which he wrote that the move was “full of female characters that are simply stand-ins for men plus a black character worthy of a minstrel show.” In other posts on Facebook in 2015 and 2016, Murray shared the kind of provocative political memes that were popular among supporters of Trump during the election.Murrayshared an imagedefending rancher Cliven Bundy, who was jailed and is awaiting trial for his role in the 2014 Bundy standoff against the federal government, and blastingRev.Al Sharpton as a “life-long race baiter.” Murray added his own caption, “Hey Kaitlyn (sic), you make my knees wobble!” “I’m sensing some micro aggression out there,” wrote Murray.

Milo Yiannopoulos’ ‘Free Speech Week’ At Berkeley Falls Apart …

After days of uncertainty, an event at the University of California, Berkeley, touted as “Free Speech Week” by organizers including far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos has been canceled. Seth Wenig/AP hide caption After days of uncertainty, an event at the University of California, Berkeley, touted as “Free Speech Week” by organizers including far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos has been canceled. Updated at 6:15 p.m. ET “Free Speech Week,” a four-day, right-wing rally at the University of California, Berkeley, has been called off, student organizers of the event tell member station KQED. Another organizer, controversial far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos, will reportedly hold a press conference on Saturday formally canceling the event, which was scheduled to start Sunday. A spokesperson for Yiannopoulos told KQED on Friday that he “couldn’t confirm” the event would happen. The event fell apart after the co-organizers The Berkeley Patriot, an online publication, and Yiannopoulos failed to confirm the guest list and book multiple indoor venues on campus. Tensions and confusion mounted this week ahead of the event, which organizers said was planned in response to Berkeley’s efforts to shut down conservative speakers. A fierce debate about free speech on campus ignited in February when the university canceled an appearance by former Breitbart editor Yiannopoulos because of security concerns. Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Trump, and conservative commentator Ann Coulter were reportedly scheduled to speak at this weekend’s event, but their appearances were never confirmed. Coulter had also been scheduled to appear at Berkeley in April, but her speech was abruptly canceled and protests followed. The confusion around whether Bannon and Coulter would appear is “part of the whole chaos” in the runup to the Berkeley event, said John Sepulvado, host of KQED’s The California Report. “It is part of the M.O. of these activities … to be as confusing and disorienting as possible,” Sepulvado told Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson earlier this week. Since Yiannopoulos’ appearance was canceled earlier this year, students and right-wing groups have criticized Berkeley widely considered to be one of the centers of the free speech movement in the 1960s for shutting down conservative speech. Berkeley officials say the school is committed to preserving free speech but at the same time must protect safety on campus. Yiannopoulos posted a YouTube video this week saying the university is using “slippery and bureaucratic tactics” to try to prevent the event from happening. The university did not try to cancel the event outright, as Yiannopoulos suggests, but a group of about 130 professors, graduate students and lecturers called for a boycott of classes and university events next week. An open letter argued that many students, faculty and staff would feel unsafe at school because of the anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay rhetoric of many of the speakers. They also expressed fears that there might be an “uncontrollable confrontation” during the week. What about the legality of such rhetoric? Hate speech is protected under the First Amendment, in part because there isn’t a legal definition of it, says Santa Clara University law professor Margaret Russell. A person can only be prosecuted for a specific crime associated with the hate speech but not the speech on its own, she explains. “I think the law is pretty clear, at least to the extent that hate speech is not considered, by itself, to be unprotected under the First Amendment,” Russell told Hobson in February. “So, if people want to enact laws or if people want to prosecute people who violate the law, the prosecution can’t be based on the viewpoint of the person. It has to be based on the underlying crime.” The free speech debate has grown more contentious in light of the growing number of nationwide protests since Trump took office. In August, a woman was killed after a group of white supremacists and neo-Nazis at a “Unite the Right” rally violently clashed with counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Va. Sepulvado of KQED says it’s no coincidence the far-right is using Berkeley one of the most liberal cities in the U.S. as the center of this debate. “It’s become a center of far-right speech because the far-right has taken the tactic and Milo Yiannopoulos being the prime example of essentially trolling people who wouldn’t want to hear it and that’s what this is,” Sepulvado said. “When I talked to Berkeley Patriot, and I said, you know, ‘What is the academic value of having Ann Coulter or Milo Yiannopoulos speak on campus?’ They say there isn’t any. They are the first to acknowledge that there is no academic value.”

Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns From Breitbart After … – NPR

Milo Yiannopoulos speaks during a news conference Tuesday in which he announced his resignation as a senior editor with Breitbart News. Mary Altaffer/AP hide caption Milo Yiannopoulos speaks during a news conference Tuesday in which he announced his resignation as a senior editor with Breitbart News. Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos has resigned amid a social media backlash over comments he made that appeared to condone pedophilia. In a news conference Tuesday, Yiannopoulos said his resignation was effective immediately and praised the website as “a significant factor in my success.” He also explained his views on sex with minors, insisting that he does not condone statutory rape. “I do not believe any change in the legal age of consent is justifiable or desirable,” Yiannopoulos said. He was referring to comments in live-streamed interviews more than a year ago in which he said, “We get hung up on this kind of child abuse stuff,” and referenced, “this arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent.” “I said some things on those Internet live streams that were simply wrong,” he said Tuesday. He also said that he had been sexually abused as a child. Yiannopoulos’ resignation comes one day after he lost both a prominent speaking gig at a conservative meeting and a book deal. As The Two Way reported: “First, Monday afternoon the American Conservative Union rescinded its invitation to the right-wing provocateur noted for his political posts on the Internet to speak at its annual Conservative Political Action Conference this upcoming weekend. Then, a few hours later, Simon & Schuster announced that it was canceling the publication of Yiannopoulos’ upcoming book, Dangerous. “These actions come in the wake of a social media backlash against Yiannopoulos after the conservative news outlet The Reagan Battalion tweeted videos on Sunday in which Yiannopoulos appears to condone statutory rape and sexual relationships between boys and men.” Yiannopoulos had tried to clarify his comments Monday on Facebook, defending his remarks and referencing his own sexual history while also blaming his own “sloppy phrasing” and “deceptive” video editing. He said Tuesday that other publishers had expressed interest in his book, and that he expected it to be published this year. He also said he was founding an “independently funded media venture” and would be going on a “live tour in the coming weeks,” including appearances on college campuses. Earlier this month, a Yiannopoulos speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley was canceled after students protests turned violent.
