Any antifa thugs hoping to stir up trouble at the “Free Speech Week” events scheduled to take place later this month at the University of California, Berkeley, may want to reconsider their plans given what conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos has in store for them.
“Our efforts are moving ahead at full speed to put together the best free speech event Berkeley has ever seen,” Yiannopoulos told Campus Reform this week. “I am sparing no expense, including a 16-man Navy SEAL security detail for me and our speakers.”
One of three conservative speakers invited by the Berkeley Patriot, a student newspaper, to take part in the free speech-themed event, Yiannopoulos is an outspoken commentator and hilarious provocateur known to incite unhinged liberal activists into fits of violent rage.
During a protest against a speech he had planned to give on Feb. 1., at least 150 masked leftist thugs wound up causing an estimated $100,000 in damage to the campus, as well as attacking several of Yiannopoulos’ student fans.
“Administrators decided to cancel the Wednesday event about two hours before (his) speech,” CNN reported at the time. “UC Berkeley said it removed him from campus ‘amid the violence and destruction of property and out of concern for public safety.’”
All this because the echo chamber leftists at Berkeley couldn’t bear for someone who holds differing political and ideological views to share them publicly.

As Yiannopoulos made clear this week, however, he has no intention of being bullied into silence again.
“UC Berkeley has claimed that this will be a year of free speech, but they’ve quickly gone back to their old tricks,” he said, citing sleazy attempts by school officials to block him, conservative commentator Ann Coulter and former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon from speaking at the “Free Speech Week” events scheduled for Sept. 24-27.
“They seem committed to the course of excluding speakers who don’t share their progressive, authoritarian mindset from campus,” Yiannopoulos told Campus Reform. “It won’t fly. There is too much at stake for America, and too many eyes on both the university administration and the city of Berkeley.”
He pledged further that the events “will go on no matter what Berkeley says,” adding: “Nothing will deter us. We will not yield.”
Nor should they.
