Ottawa: How Not to do Free Speech
Ann Coulter, the former playboy-model who magicked a punditry career cause of her good looks and empty brain, has been on a speaking tour through some Canadian universities the last couple of weeks.
She had already taken a stop at Western, where she played the usual crap-filled hate-mongering vitriolic shit card to a paying audience, making sure to insult a Muslum student during question period. For some more context, this is the same racist bitch who said these comments during an interview a couple years back:
She continued on to her next event, put on by the Conservative Club at the University of Ottawa. She was greeted there with the usual, completely justified protests to her vitriolic and ignorant garbage. The event itself was ill-managed, but the real shame came while Ms. Coulter was preparing to start her speech. Amidst the extreme protests, one fucking asshole vigilante decided for all of us that Coulter’s speech was so unacceptable that we all should be barred from hearing it. So they pulled the fire alarm, causing the organizers to cancel the event with safety concerns.
Let’s be clear, here. Ann Coulter’s opinions are a rotting, pus-filled corpse of vomitous ignorance and xenophobia. HOWEVER, barring actual calls of violence against a person or group of people, our Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees that she should have a right to speak.
(a) freedom of conscience and religion;
(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
(c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
(d) freedom of association.
Now, I ask anyone who was happy about her talk getting shut down: WHAT PART OF THAT DON’T YOU GET? Ann Coulter has every right to expose her pathetic ignorance to the world, so that we all are aware of how stupid that ignorance is, and rightly ignore it. You moronic protesters just made all of Canada look like a bunch of intolerant, PC thugs, and just gave her more ammunition for her batshit insanity. I’d like to point out, for a protest against Ann Coulter, the net result was pretty damn pro-Ann Coulter. You fucking, inexcusably stupid idiots.
I know the fire alarm was the act of a lone individual, but if you celebrated the ‘victory’ over Coulter, you’re worse than she is.
Hat tip to Amy-Jean, for that all that stuff she said in the comments section.
