Mob Forces Coulter Speech Cancellation

From Canada’s Toronto Toronto Star:


Ann Coulter speech cancelled after thousands protest

March 23, 2010

OTTAWA—Security officials have scrubbed American right-winger Ann Coulter’s speech at the University of Ottawa after a boisterous protest prompted concerns for her safety.

A spokesman for the group that organized the event said there were fears for Coulter’s well-being after about two thousand people gathered outside the venue to protest her presence there.

Coulter is a darling of the U.S. right-wing who uses incendiary language to sell millions of books as well as her syndicated column.

She sparked more controversy during a speech at University of Western Ontario Monday night when she told a 17-year-old Muslim student to “take a camel” instead of a the flying carpet she has previously suggested Muslims use for transportation.

Even before her Canadian tour began, Coulter received a pre-emptive and private caution about the limits of free speech in this country from the provost of the University of Ottawa.

The letter was immediately leaked to select conservative news organizations, with Coulter telling one that the university was “threatening to criminally prosecute me for my speech.”

Let’s review.

The Canadians have subtly threatened Ms. Coulter with criminal prosecution over speeches she had not yet given. She has been attacked in the Canadian Parliament.

Officials have banned the posters advertising her speech, while allowing those that viciously attack her. Canadian officials have been prohibited from attending any of her speeches. And now this.

Now we know why we never hear our neighbors to the north say, “well, it’s a free country.’

Still, we are witnessing Western Civilization being stolen right before our eyes.

It’s hard to imagine, but once upon a time Canadians fought for such rights as free speech.

But of course that was a long time ago.

    Those ‘protectors’ of free speech THE LEFT WING, have demonstrated, that if given the chance, they will eliminate every right you have. The right to speak, the right to protect yourself, the right for states to govern themselves, the right to privacy, the right to purchase or not purchase your own health care.

    Like I said before, to them, “the ends justify the means.” Whatever is good for the party, is good. Whatever is not, is not. Morals and laws only apply as it benefits the herd, and/or punishes the infidels not in the herd.

    Learn well . . . .

    They absolutely would have stoned her to death if they thought for a second they could do it and get away with it.

  3. artpa

    not only is she stone cold on and also funny, she’s hot, the left can’t stand this, go Ann

  4. mr_bill

    I wonder if any of the watchdog lapdog media went combing through the crowds listening for slurs.

  5. wirenut

    I wonder how many orderly people inside were denied their rights? What no headcount on that? If I pay for a show, I’M see’n the show. This would have been worth the double park ticket on your camel, while your magic carpet is at the dry cleaners. I heard, the herd instinct works well with the ignorant. The rest of us just what to be left alone. (Some puns intended.) Please don’t go incendiary or explosive on me.

    This must be the leftest version of “Tea Bagging” vs the American Right’s Tea Party.

    Sorry…just had to throw it back at ‘em!

    This is so sad. Nothing much will be made of this though in the MSM. This will be overlooked or at most buried deep with in the ads of the back pages with about 2 sentence in one paragraph.

    But let someone be ACCUSED of saying the “N” word and it’s front page news in every paper…Oh how unruly those Tea Party “mobs’ are.

    That’s of course just before they take all their own litter away with them as they wait for the light at the corner and look both ways before crossing the street.

    How’s that compare with this “thoughtful” bunch in Canada?

    Are these protesters immoral? It doesn’t matter…..to them. This is exactly what I have been saying:

    “The people currently running the show in Washington,” said Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, “come from the radical leftist world of Saul Alinsky in which everything they do – no matter how unethical, corrupt and flat-out illegal – is morally justified if it advances their agenda. Winning votes and elections by any means possible is their stock in trade.”

    > Of course Canada has no provision for free speech.

    Are we really that much better? I’d double check with Simon Sheppard and Stephen Whittle whether either of them would describe the US as “the beacon of free speech in the Western world”, before jumping to any conclusions.

    She had to be shut down, the Canadian Human Rights Commission would have been forced into new territory.

    The CHRC has been in the business of protecting me from the big bad world for 40 years. In that 40 years of prosecuting supposed hate speech, they have never lost a case! They have also never brought charges against anyone except white middle aged males.

    The CHRC is truly an amazing organization for they realized from the beginning that only white males can hate and that all of them are always guilty.

    On a side note… As a Canadian, I am truly worried now that ObamaCare has passed. Where will I go now for fast, professional and cost effective health care if I get sick?

    • Right of the People

      I thought Mark Steyn wiped the floor with them?

      You could go to Cuba, they supposedly have a perfect health care system. At least that’s what the lefties are sayin’.

      I used to love going to Canada. There is a great little bakery in Dunham, Quebec we go to and we used to go shopping at the Mr. C’s in Cowansville but things have changed and not for the better.

    • conservativecanuck

      I hear you Merk but we have nobody to blame but ourselves. We are the ones that sat back and allowed these social engineers to re-structure our lives. Forty years of liberalism has rendered our people mute to any political discourse. Liberal Tory, same old story. I only hope and pray out neigbors to the south will take us under their wings when this social experiment falls apart.

    Clearly the left is tyrannical. Free speech is not valued in countries with majority liberal rule because in their eyes the state is the means to every end.

    In the U.K. a Christian couple was arrested and charged with hate speech because they debated the role of the headscarf (light debate, I might add) with a Muslim guest staying at their hotel, who then alerted the police. The charge was dismissed, but even the court date would be enough to infuriate me – these liberal paradises remind me a bit of Iran, where police will harass or shut down those with views not in line with the government.

    Coulter is not violent, and yet she was banned and harassed. Goes to show you how much liberals value freedom.

  11. joeblough

    When nobody actually fights for freedom it tends to go away.

    ===========

    As we see here, the savages are more than willing to fight to destroy freedom.

    They volunteer and take time out readily.

  12. sheehanjihad

    O Canada!

    Just look what you’ve become!

    No freedom of speech, your country is undone..
    ..
    With lack of spines, we see the leftists’ rise

    The true North on her knees

    from far and wide

    O Canada, we stand and weep for thee

    God save your land because you’re no longer free!!

    O Canada one of these days you’ll see,

    O Canada! We truly weep….for…thee.

    That muslim hussy wearing tight jeans only needs to take her scary terrorist scarf off to get a ride. Why hide her hair, but not her uss & crutch.

    The way that scary scarfed hussy kept looking down and pressing that electronic device in her hand as she talked, she might have detonated a bomb, or had been informing a terrorist elsewhere of Ann’s precise position.

  14. BigOil

    Maybe Ann was just trying to help the Muslib reduce her carbon footprint. She should be grateful.

    SJ:
    WTF ???
    (yes, I’m holding a big tater stick – a Maple one)

    • sheehanjihad

      Hey DW!! I knew I should have put in that disclaimer….not all Canadians are dweebs…so my apologies to you for certain! My oldest brother, his wife, and two children are also long time residents…as is a passel of my relatives.

      That tome was designed strictly for the leftist shitbirds who make Canada look bad. In that light, I saw a vid of the “students” screaming epithets about Ann Coulter….their hatred for her was palpable….except they were screeching “no hate speech on our campus” with such virulent hatred it struck me as ironic that they couldn’t see how hypocritical it was of them….they cannot be that ignorant. Yet, they holler on…..

      So for sure, not painting Canada at all in that light….just that extremely ignorant campus and its drones. By the way……it did get you out of the smelters for a second or two! Hows the weather in Thompson?

    • DW

      Howdy, SJ. Couldn’t resist the “Walking Tall” imagery ;-)

      If she wanted to, Ms. Coulter could have a field day showing the sheer hypocrisy of a lot of those universities who are constantly suppressing opinions they don’t agree with.
      I believe things are much the same at universities south of the medicine line, no?
      Hopefully she’ll have a better reception in Calgary, though even that bastion of conservatism has it’s share of dingbats these days.

      Weather was gorgeous here for a few weeks. Well above freezing. The global warming types were in their glory. The normal human beings who were just sick of minus 50 were in their glory.
      Then we got another dump of snow and it was minus 20F last night.
      No wonder we’re all so cranky up here…

      To get back on topic, I think the government inadvertently gave these haters a bit of ammo when they (the gov’t) refused to let British MP (and loon) George Galloway give speeches here a while back.

    There’s no way Rush would look that good in a mini skirt!!!

    God bless Rush and Ann – love ‘em both.
