Polarizing and often outspoken, conservative writer and pro-Trump advocate Ann Coulter will be the special guest speaker for this year’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner put on by the Republican Party of Stanislaus County.
Notable for the recent controversy that initially saw her speaking event cancelled at University of California, Berkeley, the home of the free speech movement, Coulter is set to speak at the Lincoln Day Dinner only a day after the initial UC Berkeley event.
While UC Berkeley would rescind the cancellation, Coulter would offer criticism on twitter that the situation came with a “burdensome condition” on her constitutional rights and acknowledge that the May 2 date would be at time when no classes were in session.
“Do not fall for b.s Berkeley press release claiming they “rescinded” cancelation. They added NEW, more burdensome condition on my const rts,” tweeted Coulter on Apr. 20.
“In addition to facts: We've already spent $ for 4/27 Berkeley spc & I can't do May 2…THERE ARE NO CLASSES AT BERKELEY THE WEEK OF MAY 2!!!”
Coulter’s Lincoln Day Dinner event would be no stranger to division either as her scheduled appearance in Modesto drew attention during the Government Night Town Hall held in Denair last Monday, Apr. 17.
As the panel for the town hall was all Republican, they all maintained a commitment to free speech. However, it was acknowledged that panel members would be out of town during the time of the event.
Tickets for the event can be attained online at www.stanislausGOP.org. Tickets are limited, with individual tickets priced at $125 and table sponsorships ranging from the bronze $750 level to Event Sponsor level of $10,000. Activities are scheduled for Apr. 28 with VIP Reception set for 5 p.m., program at 6:30 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m., and a book signing at 9:30.
