Berkeley Buzzing for Bannon: Breitbart Exec Chairman Joins Free Speech Week

Stephen K. Bannon, Executive Chairman of Breitbart News and former White House Chief Strategist, will speak at Berkeley Free Speech Week.

Bannon is scheduled to speak on Wednesday, September 27, the final day of Berkeley Free Speech Week. Theday’s theme is “Mario Savio is Dead,” with speeches highlighting the sad state of free speech at universities throughout the country.

MILO commented on Mr. Bannon joining the event: “Berkeley Free Speech Week is attracting speakers of the highest caliber. Uncle Steve was the force behind Trump’s election victory and much of his initial policymaking. Nothing could be better for the leftists who oppose Trump so vehemently than a lesson in the logic behind Trump’s actions, direct from the architect of his policies.”

Berkeley Free Speech Week, the four-day free speech festival MILO is hosting in conjunction with campus sponsor the Berkeley Patriot, will be held between Sunday, September 24, and Wednesday, September 27. Each day will have multiple speakers addressing a common theme. Over the next few weeks, more than 20 additional speakers will be announced. Expect to see fan favorites and some surprises.

On the final day of Berkeley Free Speech Week, MILO will present the Mario Savio Award for Free Speech to the person who best exemplifies courageous free expression in American public life.
