Is this what Berkeley is so scared of? Richard Spencer sueing? There is no requirement that any institution has to give anybody a platform in the 1st amendment. He is going to loose this and spend a lot of money doing so and it is a fucking hilarious joke. This is tantamount to saying that a newspaper be required to publish every letter to the editor because not doing so limits somebody's free speech. The first amendment says that the government cannot crack down on your right to say something, but it doesn't say that any institution is required to give a platform. This is actually funny.
