Berkeley is bracing itself for another day of potentially disruptive rallies that might break out in violence.
Members of a number of far-right groups have said they are planning to hold a demonstration at Civic Center Park, some gathering at 10 a.m., others at 2 p.m., to protest Ann Coulter’s cancellation of a speech she had planned to deliver today at UC Berkeley. Others may gather on campus.
Those groups include the Proud Boys, an aggressive, “pro-Western” organization started by conservative commentator Gavin McInnes, who is flying in from New York for the event. A number of those who spoke at the April 15 Patriots Day rally will be there too, including Lauren Southern, a Canadian media personality, and Brittany Pettibone, the far-right sci-fi writer from Gilroy. The Oath Keepers, an organization of former military and law enforcement officers that provided “security” on April 15, along with the groups, American Civil Defense, III% patriots, and bikers from Two Million Bikers, will also be there.
No? Wrong III Percent Patriot group? Yeah, that’s what I thought too.
What’s your excuse this time – too far, nobody else’s money involved, Nervous Holly needs you to stay home and protect her, III Arms finally got an order, construction finally began on the “citadel” or have you finally realized you’re a joke in the Patriot community?
