There’s a war for freedom of speech in California. Some are calling it the Battle for Berkeley, a 21st-century fight for free speech.
The UC Berkeley campus — the birthplace of the free speech movement just 50 years ago, a movement that has left an incredible legacy, with monuments commemorating the movement peppered through the campus — has been hijacked.
The hijackers are anti-free speech cultural Marxists, who believe that free expression must be obstructed in order to accommodate their political agendas. They call themselves "Antifa."
Most recently, popular American pundit and author, Ann Coulter was disinvited to speak at Berkley due to threats of riots from members of Antifa.
When Faith Goldy heard that Ann was no longer going to Berkley, she knew that she couldn't allow Antifa a victory.
So Faith called Gavin McInnes and a few of her friends and asked them to join her in Berkeley to deliver Ann's speech for her.
Watch all the footage from Faith's trip including interviews with anti-free speech leftists, Trump supporters, progressives for free speech, as well as Nathan Damigo – the man who mowed down “Moldylocks.”
The Rebel brings you the truth from Berkeley because the mainstream media won’t.
The total cost for this trip was just under $4,000. That money was spent on plane tickets for two people, hotels, security, and transportation. For an organization like the CBC that gets a billion dollars annually from the government, that's nothing. But The Rebel relies on our audience to help us pay the bills.
