OTTAWASecurity officials have scrubbed American right-winger Ann Coulters 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 Coulters 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.

Liberal fascism. Free speech for me but not for thee.
The world has gone mad.
“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.”
Oh wow, I am sure they probably took her out of context, but that is damn funny. Take a camel lol.
So, Canada, how’s that “tolerance and diversity” workin’ out for you?
A world of post-Weimar republics.
The left can’t stand to hear the truth.
What a load.
Notice that is anyone says the least little thing about Muslims they are threaten with death. What are they afraid of/
It ain’t over yet...
Your right... “Take a camel” is hilarious. I dont care who you are that is funny stuff.
Ya call that “FReedom of speech” , Canada?
Shame on you.
I guess we can add Canada as a lost cause. If both of my great uncles, who fought in WW2, were alive today, they would be scratching their heads wondering how the Allied countries turned into such fascist states today.
Of course this is Canada and we can’t tell them what to do.
And I certainly don’t want to see Ann harmed.
But part of me thinks they ought to withdraw all Security (except maybe that affecting bombers and snipers) for such speakers, right or left, and let the chips fall where they may.
If Security wasn’t used on the side of the right or the left, and this time it’s being used on the side of the left, I wonder how things would turn out.
tried to leave a comment on the paper’s site but comments were closed.If I was able to comment I would have said “hey,before ya know it you Canadians are gonna be praying 5 times a day.Or you’ll be wipped!
So, a prentnd complaint about bad behavior from a conservative gets on the front page of the New York Times, but liberals can do this.
I love Ann. The Canadians are not worth a crap.
This is just a preview of what the US will become under Obama’s second term and from thereafter. ( I just hope it won’t happen sooner and we can prevent it by not giving him a second term).
A handful of anti-speech, anti-truth, anti-freedom collectives control the universities now? Infiltrate, identify, incarcerate their life endangering/threatening elements...or is that hate speech protected?
Yep, nice bunch of brownshirts they have there.
“I just hope it wont happen sooner and we can prevent it by not giving him a second term”
I think it will happen in his first term.
It’s like a roller coaster, it slowly slows builds speed then BOOM, off you go.
Health Care was that BOOM.
We know she’s doing something right. lol
I had lost faith in her after she cooled on birthers.
I can’t believe this beautiful woman used to date a muslim guy
sorry ‘bout the extra *slows* in the sentence.
“Security officials have scrubbed American right-winger Ann Coulters speech at the University of Ottawa after a boisterous protest prompted concerns for her safety.”
“fears for Coulters well-being after about two thousand people gathered outside the venue to protest her presence there”
threatening to criminally prosecute me for my speech.
- 5 dictionary results
1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.
n. The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.
Brings back memories of engineering school at Mizzou in ‘69 to ‘73. The south Asian instructors had such heavily accented English that nobody could understand them and absolutely terrible presence in front of a classroom. They were all known on campus as “camel jockeys.”
I am laughing so hard about all of this because she knew this would happen from the beginning and now this mess tonight only adds weight to her “human rights abuse” charge that she has filed with Canada.
She’s charging that these people (and one person in particular) are bigots attacking her “thoughts/beliefs” and is going to use Canada’s very own Human Rights Council (aka Leftist attack machine) to reveal their duplicity.
Ann’s playing them for fools and it’s good humor. I just hope she still gets paid.
God, I’m sick of these people.
y is that?
“This is just a preview of what the US will become under Obamas second term and from thereafter. ( I just hope it wont happen sooner and we can prevent it by not giving him a second term).”
We have the 2nd Amendment. Vancouver is kind of like Seattle. Bunch of weirdos. Beautiful landscapes.
At least North America.
Can’t you just feel the tolerance?
Speech cancelled after left wing extremists riot.
It’s not a “protest” when it is a violent and unlawful (ringing fire alarms) event.
well I happen to believe (personally) that non-muslim women should NEVER date or marry or procreate with muslim men .
All offspring are automatically considered as muslims , even if the mother disagrees . Islam is the greatest source of female enslavement that exists within the fabric of humanity .
imho , any gals that hook up with these guys are misguided , at best , and totally insane at worse .
Even the rich ones , like Ann dated , how much is their money worth ? I mean really.
Like a jackboot on the neck.
NONE of the biased writer's statements call out those protesting as "Left-wingers".
I LOATHE the Pravda Media.
this is just fear on their part....the truth hurts...
After the 2012 election, President Palin should simply annex Canada. Then we should just throw out Ontario and Quebec (forced to survive by themselves without the other provinces supporting them, both would sink into Euro-Socialist mediocrity). We wouldn’t need to bring back any troops from Iraq or Afghanistan to accomplish the annexation. The Buffalo police department could probably handle the job.
The media hushed up all reports of the antisemitic, violent, Marxist, pro-terrorist rhetoric at the so-called "peace rallies" when Boosh was President. SCREW the damned lying media.
Lies by omission are lies too. I will NOT sit for "Media Matters" and Indymedia" reports of "hate speech" at anti-Socialized Medicine rallies in the MSM. Either give "fair" coverage to the extremists in ALL movements or STFU, Pravda.
She can fully expect to be charged for using the tactics espoused by a radical (Saul Alinsky).
Ottawa? Isn’t that Indian for “brainless and squishy?”
Ohmagow sign teeta.
The "Tea Party" is a joke these marxist animals laugh at.
The original Tea Party caused MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGE.
This Tea Party cleans up after itself and then stands silently by while characterized by the reds as "Tea Baggers", a homosexual slang term.
The "Retarded Right" ought to just stay home, they have no clue what it takes to send a message.
Take a guess! Does the recent antics of ACORN give you a hint?
“...Coulter is a darling of the U.S. right-wing”
Can you feel the love?
