Ann Coulter speech banned as violent mob gathers

From YWC News:

A speech by renowned author and columnist Ann Coulter at the University of Ottawa was shut down this evening, mere moments before it was scheduled to start, after a violent mob of extreme leftists gathered.

According to the Drudge Report, a raging horde of 2000 virulent leftists brandishing rocks and sticks surrounded Marion Hall, where the speech was scheduled to take place.  Other leftists barged into the building and pulled fire alarms.  The Ottawa police responded with a paltry nine squad cars before Sgt. Dan Beauchamp waved the white flag of surrender, commenting that the gathering mob was “a public safety issue” that he would rather not have to deal with.

The leftists, either incredibly dense, lacking any sense of humor, or both, cited a ‘flying carpet’ joke made earlier by Coulter as the flashpoint for their rage.  “I can say it a lot quicker with a joke, and by the way, they wouldn’t be bringing me in here for a speech if I never told a joke, if I never used satire,” Coulter said on Canadian TV today. “It’s not so much a joke, it’s satire because there’s a political point behind my saying that they can take flying carpets.”

The student whose question brought on the ‘flying carpet’ joke, Fatima Al-Dhaher, apparently believing that the University should have brought a less skilled orator, commented “if the intention of the university is to bring two different speakers from two different political spectrums, I think that there are better choices from that camp.”  She went on to complain that the University should not have invited Coulter “because she is a bit vocal and she is a bit outrageous in some of the things that she says.”  No doubt she would have preferred one of the phony ‘conservative’ straw men with the personality and rhetorical ability of a wet paper bag who is more focused on appeasing leftists than standing up for conservative ideals.

Coulter’s next planned speech at the University of Calgary this Thursday is still on schedule at the current time.
