Anyone who seriously thought loud-mouthed lefties had driven Milo Yiannopoulos into the woods forever is seriously out of touch with the mood of the world.

Here he is.

Last Saturday, Milo announced he’s planning ‘Milo’s Free Speech Week’ in Berkeley later this year.

“We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression and the First Amendment,” he wrote on his Facebook page, which, if anything, has gathered vehement momentum since Simon & Schuster canned his $255,000 book deal in February.

Where better to hold a free speech week than the UC Berkeley campus?

Where better than the very place liberal loons heaved hatred while rioting, throwing rocks, starting fires and attacking fans. The very campus where these self-entitled, blinkered fools caused such childish chaos the UC Police Department had to shut down his speaking event.

Since the 1960s, Berkeley has been known for promoting free speech.

“I intend to return Berkeley to its rightful place as the home of free speech – whether university administrators and violent far-left Antifa thugs like it or not,” Milo wrote. “We will stand united against the ‘progressive’ Left. We will loudly reject the venomous hectoring and moral hypocrisy of social justice warriors. Free speech belongs to everyone – not just the spoilt brats of the academy.”

Frankly, it can’t happen soon enough.

Conservative commentator and best-selling author Ann Coulter was scheduled to speak at the campus on Thursday – but has been forced to cancel.

“There will be no speech,” she confirmed to Reuters on Wednesday.

She was originally going to speak and challenge the storm of delicate snowflakes in an effort to push back against censorship of free speech at the very place the movement originated.

The student group who invited Coulter to speak is threatening to sue the school. What a ridiculous mess.

It’s as crazy as feminists shutting down screenings of The Red Pill across Australia. People have a right to choose what they watch – and listen to who they like speak.

When did these goons get a complete monopoly on the loaded narrative?

Are students not capable of listening and rationally questioning what is said? Isn’t that the point of university?

In February, Trump tweeted, “If UC Berkeley does not allow free speech and practises violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Sounds fair.

Berkeley is currently in a dangerous, claustrophobic bubble which needs to burst.

Ideological openness does not thrive in a vacuum.

The battle to reclaim Berkeley is officially on.
