Coulter's Ottawa speech cancelled over 'public safety' fears
canada.com ^ | 3/23/10 | Robert Sibley, Ottawa Citizen

Posted on 03/23/2010 7:04:17 PM PDT by Nachum

OTTAWA — Concerns for "public safety" forced the cancellation of American conservative commentator Ann Coulter's speaking engagement at the University of Ottawa Tuesday night.

Several hundred people, including students from both Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, showed up prior to Coulter's speech. The loudest and most vociferous were protesting her presence, drowning out a smaller group of pro-Coulter demonstrators.

Ottawa police had more than nine squad cars at the scene, at the university's Marion Hall. But the event was cancelled about 8:15 p.m. — before Coulter had a chance to speak.

"It's a public safety issue," said Sgt. Dan Beauchamp.

By some of the pictures you can tell the “protestors” would all be Obama voters...if they lived in the U.S.

People fearful of freedom and self-determination often result to these tactics, targeting the messengers and the people they fear.

Ahem - rules, gentlemen, rules.

(Any mention of Ann on FR must be accompanied by a least one picture).

I think that's Eevil Conservative on the left. I'm not sure who that is on the right.

A display of (Christian) religious symbols being desecrated? Entitled to public funding, with no violence.

An anti-Semitic speech based on lies against Israel? Free speech, part of the public discourse.

Anything that offends Obama’s far left socialist buddies or Islamic radicals? Must be canceled because of fears of violence.

And the far left claims that patriotic Americans incite violence.

Liberals make public discourse dangerous. Their mental instability causes them to be violent.

""No more racists on our campus,'' shouted the anti-Coulter crowd."

The Left shows me they have an addiction to card playing. They have a special addiction to the race card as if it were the rock cocaine to politics. As for their other addictions, a nanny state sure helps when they are so stoned out they can't work. When a society gets so ignorant they cannot allow a civil discourse in a public forum, you can kiss their liberty away. Canada should be absolutely ashamed about this turn of events.

So much for free speech... meanwhile...

Bill Ayres, admitted Terrorist and Anti American radical will speak at the University of Pittsburgh on Friday.

It is a closed event, and the "racist, homophobic, bible toting, gun loving people of Western Pennsylvania" according to Obama and Murtha, will do nothing to try to prevent this pampered rich kid punk commie from speaking at Pitt, albeit many of the current students and alumni are outraged that a hunk of scum like him would even be invited to speak at their University.

Say what you want about her, but as far as I know, Ann Coulter has never once planted IEDs intended to kill people.

Maybe Canada should get their head's straight and not allow themselves to be pushed around by violent radical political minorities who deny free speech to anyone who disagrees with them. In the old days, those street thugs were called Brown Shirts. I guess now, they are Che Shirts.

maybe it’s time for people to swarm U of P with sticks and clubs and demand that Ayers’ “hate” speech be stopped.

Michael Savage hates Coulter more than he hates Limbaugh.

It must be because she sells more books and attracts more attention in the mainstream media.

Wrong!

Some Acorn plant in the crowd would yell the "N-word" or something and the media would run with it and make Ayres the victim and the entire protest would be labeled as racist homophobes or whatever the worst outrage in medialand is today.

Didn't we just see this played out at the Capital Building last weekend? It's Alinskies mini Reichstag fires. Create an incident and blame it on your enemies.

The best way is to smuggle are reporter into the gathering and record what the punk says and then force him to defend it afterwards. Don't interrupt him, encourage him to elaborate!

I don;t want him to shut up. I want him to keep talking. I want to force him out of the shadows of 'closed gatherings' like this at Pitt and into broad daylight to defend his radicalism.

Ann Coulter is willing to defend her views in any forum at any time. She does not attempt to hide from the spotlight. She searches for it.

Bill Ayers, on the other hand wants to remain in the dark -- like the cockroach punk he is.

Oh, for cryin' out loud. This is a flippin' war, and you're afraid that someone might say something mean that the media might use. You've already surrendered to the PC police.

It's well past time to fight fire with fire. If they get in your face, you get in theirs 10X stronger. If they hit you, you hit them 10 times harder. If they pull a knife, you pull a gun. If they pull a gun, you pull the trigger.

They are the enemy, and this is a war.

Yes, it is a war. With our American Idol population, it is a war we would lose if we go Rambo.

It's fun to talk macho on the Internet, but political Judo is what we need at this point, not heavy firepower.

We've been playing "political judo" with these worthless communist morons for decades, and the results have been the same time after time. We lose, they win. I'm not a flippin' politician, I'm a warrior. And it's time to start fighting back, not laying down and playing word games.

I want blood in the streets and I want it to be theirs. We CANNOT let this country turn into Venezuela or Zimbabwe, and yet, that is exactly what is happening right now.

The main announcer was quite dishonest in that clip. He stated that Ann didn’t show up.
