Coulter Receives Polite Canadian Welcome

After demonstrating to the whole world at the Winter Olympics what a really decent bunch of folks are Canadians (with the minor exception of some perfectly well-earned and deserved jubilant gloating over that gold medal in hockey, proving our global superiority at the game, especially over the talentless and insufferable Yanks…), Canada has provided yet further evidence that it is simply one of the best places on earth.

A protest by hundreds of students led organizers to cancel a Tuesday night speech by American conservative commentator Ann Coulter at the University of Ottawa.

A spokesman for the organizers said Coulter was advised against appearing after about 2,000 “threatening” students crowded the entrance to Marion Hall, posing a security threat.

“It would be physically dangerous for Ann Coulter to proceed with this event,” said conservative political activist Ezra Levant inside the hall.

Ezra Levant is a right wing lawyer and activist who has spent more time stirring up shit in Canada than anything else. Opposed to immigration, multiculturalism, Muslims, Quebec, bilingualism and a bunch of other things that give Glenn Beck willies, Levant is also a supporter of Holocaust deniers. It comes as no surprise to find his swollen head jammed up Ann Coulter’s ass.

Ann Coulter, of course, is the American right wing Harpie who spends more time saying offensive things about anyone who isn’t a Christian conservative fan of Joseph McCarthy than anything else. She claims there’s a political point behind her hate speech but never bothers to explain what it is, merely smirking and describing her insults as “jokes”.

Coulter…was in the middle of a three-city tour of Canada, which began at the University of Western Ontario in London on Monday, and ends in Calgary on Thursday.

The event in London went without incident, but not without controversy.

When answering questions from students, Coulter told a 17-year-old Muslim student to “take a camel” instead of the flying carpet she has previously suggested Muslims use for transportation. Coulter later told CTV that the “camel” remark was a joke.

In addition to expressing her sharp-as-wet-cardboard wit, Coulter commonly either lies or simply doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
When Canada refused to join the USA in invading Iraq, Ann said that we should feel lucky that America permits Canada to exist on the same continent. In an interview with a Canadian journalist on the subject, Coulter insisted that Canada had participated in Vietnam. When it was pointed out to her that she was wrong, she again insisted that she was correct and offered to look into the matter and get back to him.
Facts and honest debate are not things Ann Coulter does. She is a snotty, arrogant, poorly informed, lying, insulting polemic provocateur whose vocabulary is littered with epithets and contempt for clear thought and fair argument.

Kudos to the students who managed to prevent her from opening her hateful trap. As Winston Churchill said, “Your right to an opinion does not obligate me to take you seriously.”
Ann Coulter’s right to freedom of thought and expression in no way obligates the citizens of Canada or the students at the University of Ottawa to tolerate the sort of bile and crap that she leaves in her wake.

  1. I think it’s a mistake for campuses to prevent conservatives from speaking. The nuts can claim martyr status, like the biologists in “Expelled.”
    Better to let them talk, but quietly boycott the speech.
    I mean, I hate her too, but she’ll use this to her advantage. We should at least support free speech – even hate speech.

    • Free speech is fine. Coulter is perfectly welcome to go stand on a soap box in the public square. She’s not welcome to come speak in my living room. The right to free speech does not require that I listen to her.

    • I’d like to know who paid this cunt for her “free” speech that defiled 2 campuses paid for by my (Upper Canadian) tax dollars?

      I’d like to know why anybody would pay money to this nasty American bitch who knows nothing about my country, when they could hire a Canadian raving douche-bag like Ezra Levant instead.

      “People” like Cunthair have nothing to contribute to a university and have no business speaking at one. Their mere presence is corrosive and the delivery of their message is completely contrary to what University debate is supposed to be about…thoughtful, reasoned, intellectual argument. Toxic individuals like her degrade universities by their presence.

      • You wanna know who paid her, ask Ezra Levant. He was her sponsor / host for the fiasco.

        • Seriously? Is Ezra trying to unemploy himself? Or, is he trying to blow-job his way onto the right-wing’s A circuit (aka the US) by tossing this cunt’s salad?

          I never understood the process of how speakers get to speak at a university, the university’s involvement and who pays the ridiculously offensive fees these people get for flapping their lips for an hour.

  2. Well, she’s welcome to speak in my living room.
    But I live in Indiana where intruders may legally be shot.

  3. People like Coulter make me ashamed to be from the same country as her.
    Then again, my opinion doesn’t matter to her since I’m from Upper Michigan and therefore am ‘practicaly canadian’
    Clearly I’m not a patriot because I dissagree with things loud people say!!

  4. I actually happened to be leaving to vacation in America when this bitch came calling. While scanning the TV dial hoplessly looking for something halfway decent to watch, I came across FOX NOISE and Bill O’Reilly’s show. Guess who was on.

    Cunthair was talking about her Canadian experience. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stop myself from listening. In typical Cunthair fashion, she spewed out uncalled-for nastiness and was completely unapologetic for her uncalled-for nastiness. As usual, she claimed every hateful (and potentially legally actionable) thing she said was a just a joke and that they were just “haters” taking everything out of context in order to unfairly persecute her with her own words.

    While I ignore both to the best of my abilities, I was actually getting the impression O’Reilly wasn’t that impressed with her conduct that day and that he was just wearing a shit-eating grin for the bosses/audience. He gave her numerous chances to quazi-apologize or moderate herself while keeping face, but she flat out refused, just like in that CBC Vietnam interview Cousinavi mentions.

    She is an unrepentant cunt who actually makes Bill O’Reilly look good in comparison…and that’s saying something.
