Skip to comments.Ann Coulter: OH, CANADA! (Coulter = Hate Crime Victim!)

Since arriving in Canada I've been accused of thought crimes, threatened with criminal prosecution for speeches I hadn't yet given, and denounced on the floor of the Parliament (which was nice because that one was on my "bucket list").
Posters advertising my speech have been officially banned, while posters denouncing me are plastered all over the University of Ottawa campus. Elected officials have been prohibited from attending my speeches. Also, the local clothing stores are fresh out of brown shirts.
Welcome to Canada!
The provost of the University of Ottawa, average student IQ: 0, wrote to me -- widely disseminating his letter to at least a half-dozen intermediaries before it reached me -- in advance of my visit in order to recommend that I familiarize myself with Canada's criminal laws regarding hate speech.
This marks the first time I've ever gotten hate mail for something I might do in the future.
Apparently Canadian law forbids "promoting hatred against any identifiable group," which the provost, Francois A. Houle advised me, "would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges."
I was given no specific examples of what words and phrases I couldn't use, but I take it I'm not supposed to say, "F--- you, Francois."
While it was a relief to know that it is still permissible in Canada to promote hatred against unidentifiable groups, upon reading Francois' letter, I suddenly realized that I had just been the victim of a hate crime! And it was committed by Francois A. Houle (French for "Frank A. Hole").
What other speakers get a warning not to promote hatred? Did Francois A. Houle send a similarly worded letter to Israel-hater Omar Barghouti before he spoke last year at U of Ottawa? ("Ottawa": Indian for "Land of the Bed-Wetters.")
How about Angela Davis, Communist Party member and former Black Panther who spoke at the University of Zero just last month?
Or do only conservatives get letters admonishing them to be civil? Or -- my suspicion -- is it only conservative women who fuel Francois' rage?
How about sending a letter to all Muslim speakers advising them to please bathe once a week while in Canada? Would that constitute a hate crime?
I'm sure Canada's Human Rights Commission will get to the bottom of Francois' strange warning to me, inasmuch as I will be filing a complaint with that august body, so I expect they will be reviewing every letter the university has sent to other speakers prior to their speeches to see if any of them were threatened with criminal prosecution.
Both writer Mark Steyn and editor Ezra Levant have been investigated by the Human Rights Commission for promoting hatred toward Muslims.
Levant's alleged crime was to reprint the cartoons of Mohammed originally published in a Danish newspaper, leading practitioners of the Religion of Peace to engage in murderous violence across the globe. Steyn's alleged crime was to publish an excerpt of his book, "America Alone" in Maclean's magazine, in which he jauntily described Muslims as "hot for jihad."

Either Francois goes to jail or the Human Rights Commission is a hoax and a fraud.

They host Angela Davis, but not Ann Coulter: no bias there.
OTH, why would a self-respecting conservative want to appear in the same venue as a Commie.
Ptooey on U of O.
They were just trying to make Ann feel like she was at home. That’s where she usually get this kind of liberal hate.
Ann is GREAT!
You'd have to be a real A-Houle not to anticipate that accusing a conservative of "promoting hatred" prior to her arrival on a college campus would in actuality -- not in liberal fantasies of terrified Muslims cowering in terror of Mark Steyn readers -- incite real-world violence toward the conservative.Love her play on words!
Ann, What were you doing in Canada? Why waste your time? We need you here in the USA for the coming Revolution. We need your wit and pen to forge the new Declaration of Independence.
Now that's funny!
Liberals use emotion, screaming hate-filled names & epithets.
Socialism always fails. ALWAYS.
That's our girl!!
What a disingenuous move by Francois. They knew what they were getting when they booked Ann.

Not much question how that's going to play out...
...So we've run this experiment more than 100 times.
Only one college speech was ever met with so much mob violence that the police were forced to cancel it:
The one that was preceded by a letter from the university provost accusing me of hate speech.
(To add insult to injury, Francois didn't even plan to attend my speech because Tuesday is his bikini wax night.)
Not only hadn't she even given her speech yet but they held her responsible for violating a nebulous and vague, unwritten law. The Left are a bunch of luntatics.
Kudos to the Brainy Babe!
“And it was committed by Francois A. Houle (French for “Frank A. Hole”).”
I love Ann....she can cut these “A-holes” to death with her wit.
Go get ‘em girl!
