Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, author of “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” said Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice” that university administrators have become so “insulated” in regards to free speech that even Bill Maher and Chris Matthews have started questioning them.
University of California at Berkeley disinvited Coulter from speaking on campus, citing security threats.
“It’s interesting how insulated, and fascistic university administrators have become that the people who are ideologically aligned with them, I mean, not just Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, Margaret Carlson, Robert Reich, who is a professor, worked in the Clinton administration, at Berkeley,” Coulter told host Judge Jeanine Pirro.
She continued, “They have become so insulated from reality, that even people on their side are sitting back saying, ‘What are you doing, Berkeley? We have a Constitution and a First Amendment.’ It makes it especially egregious that this is a state university, this is government action deciding which speech can be heard and which speech can’t be heard, but any university is accepting massive amounts of money from the taxpayer. They can’t do this. This isn’t a private club.”
