Steve Bannon Is Set To Speak At UC Berkeley During Free Speech Week

Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, had a lot to say during a recent “60 Minutes” interview. Bannon doesn’t give interviews, but he made an exception and sat down with Charlie Rose, and it was game on. Bannon was on the warpath, and his main target was the Republican establishment. Bannon is a loyal Trump supporter, and he made sure everyone watching knew he was still fighting for the president. Charlie Rose didn’t go easy on Bannon. Rose threw several key punches at Bannon and President Trump, but Bannon held his own against the aging CBS reporter. Mr. Bannon believes the Republican establishment wants to nullify Trump’s presidency, and he is taking that message with him when he comes to UC Berkley in late September for “Berkeley’s Free Speech Week.” The four-day event is the work of former Breitbart News employee, Milo Yiannopoulos.
Mr. Bannon will give short, but interesting, remarks on the final day of the event, according to the LA Times. Other “Free Speech” events have not ended well in the past due to violent clashes between opposing sides. And Steve Bannon is going to bring a lot of heat to the free speech table when he shows up for the UC Berkeley event, according to the Times. Bannon is acting like a watchdog protecting his owner’s property. And the owner he is protecting is Donald Trump. California is not a Trump-loving state, and Bannon will certainly add fuel to the political fire that is burning brightly in Berkeley. People don’t call Steve Bannon “the Great Manipulator” because he watches what he says in public. Bannon’s goal is to organize primary challengers to incumbent Republicans who are running for reelection in 2018. Bannon believes the old Republican Party is a mess, and he is on a mission to fix it and make it more Trump friendly.
Yiannopoulos will also speak at the Berkeley event, and there will be more than 20 additional speakers according to posts on the Yiannopoulos website. Milo likes to stir the political pot. He fuels confrontations between people with different political opinions. A YouTube video calls the Berkeley event, “Bannon Infiltrates Berkeley,” and Yiannopoulos is making sure people know about Bannon’s appearance. Local political leaders and campus officials are not happy about the upcoming event, because of the violence at similar events, but there’s not much they can do about it, according to the Times.
