Berkeley Sproul Hall (Plaza)

About: UC-Berkeley readies police as Ann Coulter plans to speak in public plaza on campus - The Washington Post

Where Ann Coulter may try out some free speech:

It is interesting that I took Opera at UCLA in Sproul hall . Sproul got his name on buildings in both campuses.  So I looked it up on the UCLA maps.  I don’t recognize the pictures of the campus at all anymore.  I’ll bet I could at one time walk from English classes at the North end of the campus to the BioMed Library in 15 minutes – not any more.  Nice UCLA map system if you can get to it.

What freedom of speech means to some leftists: 
controversial for some – for some anything they don’t like to hear is not to be permitted.  Think RNKorea (Hereditary Juche one-party state under a totalitarian dictatorship) – that the baby premiere (kim jhon-un is fat) can get you killed.

Mark de LA says
Fuck free speech, eh? Maybe the provosts of that college should be replaced with some who can ensure free speech. null

Mark de LA says
“Speech is not protected by the First Amendment when it is the very vehicle of the crime itself."’
e.g. radical preachers & imams inciting riots or sedition.

Sermons in all religions are their very nature not mere speeches that advocate ideas in the abstract; rather, they are designed to convince followers to take certain prescribed actions. Generally, a cleric or priest who disseminates a religious tenet to congregants fully intends to induce them to abide by it. Moreover, congregants do not come to listen to these teachings out of mere academic interest or for entertainment, but instead to use these to motivate themselves into action. The February 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center demonstrated the vulnerability of the United States to terrorists with ties to radical Islamic groups.2 5
