Never one to do things “small” Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative and provocative Conservative commentator, will soon be appearing at the University of California, Berkeley “Free Speech Week” with a group of Navy Seals acting as his security detail.
You all know Milo by now… very outspoken, very controversial. He’s not afraid to call out the b.s. of the Liberal Left and can even garner a laugh or two from me. Here are some of his best moments.

In his post, Yiannopoulos called out assistant vice chancellor for communications Dan Mogulof for “spreading rumors” about the status of the event, which is scheduled from Sept. 24 to 27.
“Ironically, Berkeley is fighting Free Speech Week the same way they fought against Mario Savio’s Free Speech Movement in the 60’s — by spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Mogulof has a long history of hostility, leaks and lies when it comes to conservative speakers,” Yiannopoulos said.
Yiannopoulos, whose appearance at UC-Berkeley earlier this year sparked riots, said the planned events will go on as a “fabulous, and peaceful, celebration of free speech including more than 20 speakers from diverse viewpoints.”
Yiannopoulos told POLITCO that he, conservative commentator Ann Coulter and former White Chief Strategist Steve Bannon will speak at UC-Berkeley on Sept. 27.
However, Mogulof told POLITICO that the Berkeley Patriot, the conservative group sponsoring the Free Speech Week, “still has not completed the critical steps” to put on the event.
In a statement provided to The College Fix on Wednesday, Mogulof acknowledged that Yiannopoulos and Bannon have publicly said they’ll be speaking at UC-Berkeley but also said the Berkeley Patriot has not confirmed contracts between the student organization and the speakers.
