“Administrators are now apologizing”
Hampshire College in Massachusetts makes Berkeley look like a conservative think tank. It’s amazing that they even initially agreed to host this speech.

Hampshire College Abruptly Canceled 2nd Amendment Speech, Apologizes
A conservative speaker was all set to go Wednesday for a campus speech on the Second Amendment when Hampshire College officials decided to pull the plug. Administrators are now apologizing and assure it had nothing to do with the message.
Antonia Okafor, a self-described campus carry activist, said on Twitter that she was told two hours before she was to start that her speech, “Female Empowerment and the Second Amendment,” was canceled. She was told the subject matter was “very controversial” and noted this was the same school that deemed the U.S. flag too controversial:
Okafor also confirmed on Twitter that the event was pre-approved.
Hampshire College has since apologized for the cancelation and released the following statement:
“We did not cancel the speech because of the speaker, the subject of the speech, or the content. Hampshire College values academic freedom and the careful examination of ideas, including when those ideas may be controversial.”
The Dean of @hampshirecolg (the same school that deemed the ???????? too controversial) has just now cancelled my speech scheduled in 2 hours. They deemed my topic: the second amendment… “very controversial” Stay tuned for details.
