If there is anything that will draw out the worst possible reaction from Antifa, would be the news that President Donald Trump’s former right-hand man is headed to UC Berkeley for a free speech event. Well, that is now in the cards for a four-day event coming up. Mr. Bannon will be attending the “Berkeley Free Speech Event” beginning September 24th. Here are the details on the event and who is behind it.
As Written By Jazz Shaw for Hot Air:
I’m old enough to remember when Berkeley was planning on having a Free Speech Year. Clearly that plan was a bit too ambitious, so one group of conservatives is toning it down to a more compact Free Speech Week, kicking off on September 24th. And if you think that the appearance of Ben Shapiro in Berkeley this week is going to stir up some controversy and possible hot Antifa action, wait until they find out that Steve Bannon is coming.
The week in question is being organized by Milo and thus far they’re only teasing the Bannon appearance as “brief remarks” on the closing day of the celebration of free speech. (LA Times)
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is scheduled to come to UC Berkeley later this month as part of a four-day event organized by his former Breitbart employee and conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos.
The event is titled “Berkeley Free Speech Week” and is set to begin Sept. 24, the latest in a series of planned speaking engagements by notable conservatives in the liberal enclave. Bannon “will deliver short remarks” on the final day of the event, according to a news release announcing the engagement.
Over the last year, some of these speaking commitments have been canceled or ended in violent clashes……….
