Berkeley Limits Crowd Size for Conservative Speaker to Half the Auditorium Citing ‘Security Assessment’

The University of California Berkeley recently notified the Young America’s Foundation (YAF) of yet another restriction on Ben Shapiro’s September 14th lecture. YAF was informed that half the auditorium slated for the speech must be left empty due to a “new security assessment.”

According to YAF, the university’s administrators notified them that half of Zellerbach Hall must be left empty during the lecture “despite the university charging more than $15,000 to secure a fully-filled Zellerbach Hall.”

    It ain’t the conservatives who are the threat! The measure is irrational.

    Honestly, it’s hard to have respect for the organizations which used to be known as “universities”.

      The red fascists running Commie U don’t want a breach of the fire regs when their red fascist street thug morons are escorted in by their thug police to trash the “racist gathering”.

    So the Mayor, City Council and both Berkeley and Campus Police are unwilling or unable to maintain rule of law. Time to appoint a “moral bankruptcy” trustee and fire every current administrator.

    How much you wanna bet that they are leaving it half empty so it can fill up with Black Shirts to beat up the audience and end the lecture? And “security’ is in on it.

      Absolutely “security” is in on it, they are hired by the administration who is definitely “in on the fix”.
      “Security” holds the arms of the good people while the AntiFa rioters punch them in the gut.
      We need our own security!

        Security is “just following orders”. . . Where have I heard this before?

          If they are so morally bankrupt, perhaps we should put them in “moral receivership”?
          I stole that from someone today. I wished I could remember whom.

        I hear Smith and Wesson are a good reliable security company.

          Just show up in your own riot gear, a-la “Based Stickman”, and go at it with these animals and if “security” tries to stop you, beat and pepper spray them too.
          Then when you have driven away all challengers (no pun intended) set huge swaths of that campus on fire.

    Burn the campus.
    All of it!

    Berkeley douches they decided that it will be easier for Antifi to get away with beating up the audience if the group is smaller

    The other half is for Antifa.
