37. They had plenty of notice, time to prepare.

Note the date, there was more than adequate time to prepare.

Right-wing author Ann Coulter invited to speak at UC Berkeley in April

Again, all groups would have to be treated the same. The Knitting Club and the Windsurfing Club would also have to let the Berkeley administration whom they had invited, two weeks ahead of schedule, say. There could be some radical knitting factions out there; you never can tell.


Can I get an amen!

There are really only two options here... allow anyone to speak with the same considerations regarding time, place,
conditions, etc, or allow no one to speak, (especially as you noted that this is a public, taxpayer funded university).

Since the 2'nd option is out of the question, I guess there's only the one option left.

If people don't like it, fine. If they want to protest, fine. Just do it in a safe, non-violent, civilized manner.

If anyone can come up with a 3'rd option, I'd like to hear it.
