Skip to comments.Racist remarks make Coulter an unwelcome speaker at the College

I write today regarding the College's decision to invite a particular speaker to our campus. This decision to invite her on behalf of the College is one that involves our whole campus and signals that we as a whole will receive her openly.
Unfortunately, I am certain she will not receive many of us so kindly. I'm speaking of Ann Coulter, and I am advising you to rescind her invitation.
The United States is a nation that prides itself on acceptance and diversity and refuses to accept any less. The same holds true for the College. We are proud of the fact that ethnically diverse students comprise more than one third of our campus population, that 60 percent of our students are females and that we have a multiplicity of students of different religions, political views, abilities and sexual orientations.
Yet, Coulter has insulted people in each of these groups. On women, she has said, "It would be a much better country if women did not vote."
On Muslims, she has said, "News magazines don't kill people, Muslims do."
On homosexuals, Coulter has said, "I thought gays just wanted to get married to one another and settle down in the suburbs so they could visit each other in the hospital."
On Judaism, Coulter has said, "We just want Jews to be perfected."
The list of her odious quotations continues, and while she may not have been talking to students at the College, she was certainly talking about them. She has insulted the majority of our students directly and the remainder of us by extension because those whom she insulted are our friends.
Coulter has insulted our intelligence, and she has denigrated the work of those who strive for tolerance and equality. Her appearance encumbers all that the College has striven for in its implementation of courses and educational events on race, religion, homosexuality, gender equality and differing abilities.
How can we reconcile our attempts to shape a new generation of students who are tolerant, accepting and aware of those who are different from us when we invite as a guest a person who refers to our students as she does?
Coulter is no more welcome here than would be any other racist or sexist or homophobe. Yet, we are welcoming her to the College and embracing her visit with one the campus' largest venues, Kendall Hall.
My question is this: What does it say to our students by inviting her here, someone who has at one point or another blatantly insulted at least half of those enrolled here? Even more fundamentally, what does it say about us?
Liberal DemocRATS will not tolerate free speech. They’re big into censorship!
Tolerance is such a one sided thing.
The love affair with tolerance and diversity ends in Communism, Ann Coulter just points out that fact and the blinded sheeple continue to ignore facts.
Not one thing quoted has anything to do with “race”
Typical of those suffering from a vowel shortage, Br’r Kowalczyk needs first to think about assimilating to this country rather than the magic land in his mind where everybody is a gay Negro from Tehran.
How did the College of New Jersey do in football?
What is “The Signal” and what “College” is it and where is it? Very frustrating post!
People like that are exactly the reason they need Ann on campus.
The "even playing field" looks a little tilted here.
In many cases it would be better if women did not vote. They vote their feelings. Feelings is hardly what government should be concerned about. It’s not the job of government to feel. government is not parent. It is not spousal supporter. It is not dad to your kids. It is not your sole benefactor.
And I would also expound on the statement by saying given voting by emotion and feelings, that many of today’s metrosexual men should not be allowed to vote either.
It may be time to only allow property owners to vote. After all they are the ones being taxed to death to pay for all these government giveaways.
I think she’d prefer Al Sharpton.
Or perhaps she could oppose Coulter until that “white embraces what’s right.”
So then, every comic in America woulod be banned from the campus as well.
Any guy who has “Loretta” as his middle name has more problems than worrying about Ann Coulter coming to town.
“My question is this: What does it say to our students by inviting her here, someone who has at one point or another blatantly insulted at least half of those enrolled here? Even more fundamentally, what does it say about us?”
My question is, why do you raise the specter of censorship and offense when a conservative comes to campus, yet raise no such objections when liberal extremists who offend large percentages of students and faculty come to speak? Why are you such a blatant hypocrite?

Mike the idiot then goes on to create a whole column stating why Ms. Coulter should be banned from speaking because she pissed him off. How myopic, pathetic and hysterical. Wonder if he's gay?
And just so you know, I know you didn’t write it, I was responding to the writer of the piece, not you personally.
“...Even more fundamentally, what does it say about us?...”
It says that 1) you are pursuing a worthless degree in some sort of underwater basket weaving, 2) you will gain this degree, then work for McDonalds, and 3) then complain to the Obamaloon that you aren’t getting rich.
In short, you are poorly educated, and are destined to become another worthless t*rd in the toilet of society. In other words, you will be a prime candidate for congress (like a certain president).
