Lawyer Harmeet Dhillon, representing University of California at Berkeley students, brilliantly outlines – in the best press conference I’ve seen in years – the legal action underway following the university’s abrupt cancellation of Ann Coulter’s speaking engagement.
Update: Berkeley’s mayor is a fringe-leftist:
In a shocking turn of events, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin has been unmasked as a member of a violent Antifa (anti-fascist) riot group called By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), according to We Are Change. Arreguin, who has been suspected of ordering police to stand down during the recent series of riots at the University of California’s Berkeley campus, was found to be a member of By Any Means Necessary’s Facebook group and is Facebook friends with one of the group’s main organizers, Yvette Felarca.
Felarca is violent lunatic:
Yvette Felarca, the Berkeley Unified middle-school teacher who is also a leader of the group By Any Means Necessary, appeared on Fox News on Monday to reiterate her stance that violent protesters were justified in shutting down a speech scheduled to be delivered by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley on Feb.1. Felarca’s remarks have sparked an outcry from people who disagree with her views.
The phones, voicemail machines and email inboxes at the Berkeley Unified School District have been flooded with calls about Felarca, said Charles Burress, spokesman for the district. The main office of Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, where Felarca teaches, has been swamped as well. (Berkeleyside has also gotten many emails, tweets and comments on the matter.)
“Every (message) I’ve seen has been opposed to having her employed by us,” said Burress.
She shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near children. Fire her.
