Firebrand Sets Off Furor (Coulter In Canada Tour)
The London Free Press ^ | March 20 2010 | JONATHAN SHER

Firebrand Sets Off Furor

Outspoken American pundit Ann Coulter gives a London speech Monday

-----

American conservative firebrand Ann Coulter won't be in London until Monday but already the dust is flying.

Local activist and one-time NDP candidate Megan Walker says of Coulter, "She's venomous . . . She crosses the line and promotes hatred and violence."

Walker's comments provoked a response from a woman instrumental in bringing Coulter to London, Mary Lou Ambrogio, whose group, the International Free Press Society, is paying $10,000 for the appearance, the balance of Coulter's fee coming from an American group that promotes conservatism in young women, the Claire Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

...

Ambrogio said Coulter was chosen to test the tolerance of Londoners for free speech, a test she says Walker has flunked.

"She pays lip service to free speech," Ambrogio said.

While Coulter pushes peoples' buttons, she doesn't incite criminal activity nor hatred, she said.

"That's pretty outrageous," Ambrogio said, challenging Walker to "prove it."

Walker responded with 10 comments made by Coulter including:

"My only regret with (bombing terrorist) Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."

After American abortion doctor George Tiller was gunned down in church last year, Coulter was asked to condemn the killing by conservative Fox host Bill O'Reilly. She replied: "I don't really like to think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester . . . I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don't want to impose my moral values on others."

Ambrogio defended Coulter, saying, "Incitement to violence is very specific and these comments, while they may be offensive or hurtful to the people involved are not criminal . . Ms. Coulter, like millions of others, happens to believe that terminating the fetus is murder. She is simply using their language in a clever way, I think, to point out how absurdly their language strikes those who defend abortion."

Walker's comments have served to shine the spotlight on Coulter's visit, and in doing so, has sapped attention from another American visiting two days later, Robert Kennedy Jr., a talk paid for by Western.

She’ll be welcome in Alberta, and if she needs protection while travelling this socialist hellhole that is Canada, I’m sure myself and few ex platoon-mates could handle the job:)

Robert Kennedy Jr. is being invited by, and paid for, a speech by the local university (UWO).

Coulter has stolen their thunder.

She has created even more socialist envy (if that is possible).

Hatred is the way you exterminate enemies. If they are not hated, they will survive. Hatred assures extermination.

Utopia will not have any conservatives. They will be dead and gone.

Looked in the mirror lately? I’m a Canadian living in this socialist hellhole, unfortunately I don’t understand your point, perhaps you can elaborate.

Canada is not a free country, they take your hard earned money with no chance of opting out to pay for things that we’ll never know the full extent of, not to mention the human rights tribunals which are so offensive to freedom I don’t understand why more Canadians don’t demand their demise.

Coulter In Canada Tour also goes to Ottawa.

They are going nuts there...

Group attempts to silence U.S. right-winger's talk

Ann Coulter not welcome at U of O, president of student federation says The president of the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa has barred a volunteer organizer from putting up posters advertising the upcoming appearance of American right-wing columnist and political commentator Ann Coulter.

She is to talk about political correctness, media bias and freedom of speech Tuesday night at Marion Hall as part of a Canadian lecture tour. Canadian conservative political activist Ezra Levant will also speak at the event and introduce Coulter.

Well that and the fact that Robert Kennedy Jr. is a know-nothing, vapid sap whose only claim to fame is that he's from a family of degenerate rapists and murderers.

Great explanation of how Coulter turns the tables on the leftist pro baby murdering crowd using their own methods

"Local activist and one-time NDP candidate Megan Walker says of Coulter, "She's venomous . . . She crosses the line and promotes hatred and violence." "

Ann's columns and comments usually only anger those on the far left...of which this Megan Walker appears to be.

If the truth exposed about liberals by Ann Coulter makes people "fighting mad", then they obviously don't like what the liberals are doing.

The left acts as though only THEIR opinion of what is right, matters. They coordinate with unions and other hate groups like ACORN to fall out in force to intimidate and threaten to "persuade people to their line of thinking"...their "anger" is channeled through other groups...it's sort of like "laundering money", except they are "laundering" their hate and violence.

They threaten the liberty and sovereignty of this country and we're supposed to just sit there and take it, for fear of being accused of "hate" and "violence".

Well, I say to them, "You're damn right we're angry and if you try to take my country away, I'm afraid the American people will introduce you to what you have been accusing them of for decades.".

Besides, Megan Walker, it's none of your damn business anyway...obama is trying to turn us into Europe and by overwhelming numbers, we're rejecting it.

.....socialist hellhole that is Canada.....

I do beg to differ. Strung along the trans-Canada highway are numerous way stop communities and small towns, including some cities. Now, in America there is places like West Virginia (I have been there and liked it). Places like Massachusetts (never been). I would think a quite different way of life. I would think that a general overall classification about America by foreigners, is often pretty well without substance. It is so varied ( hence it's strength). Sort of like saying blood and murder in the streets there. Or saying that the streets are paved with gold (freebies).

Same thing in Canada. We have a minority Conservative government. They are beset with, very often a liberal controlled media. The television monopoly of CBC and CTV consisting of lurkers, waiting to flatten the Conservatives with a "scandal".

Excuse the rant here but..... well I had better get back to the subject. Ann Coulter of course. Anything that riles the liberal and left wing socialists is all to the good. Some of us know that it is all a big put on. Like the screaming and crying about the treatment of Afghan detainees, maligning our troops indirectly, without supporting terrorism.

Ann rocks as people on FR say.

Just read your link, I should have read it first. A big hitter is indeed gallant Ezra Levant. Hauled before the dreaded Human Rights Commission Tribunal, he bested them. A private citizen standing almost alone, before a government funded inquisition. He beat them, but their "victory" would be in the incredible cost to him financially.

I believe 100,000 dollars in legal fees. In this way, even although the HRC "lost". They strike fear into anyone hauled before them. Everyone knows what happens if one goes into something of that nature, without a lawyer. Ann has a very able man there, in Ezra Levant.

Remember, it’s only “hate speech” when Libtards deem it as such. And of course their truly vile rhetoric is simply a demonstration of free speech and patriotic dissent. See how that works?

So typical of the left. Ad hominems instead of an argument. Leftists NEVER foment, engender or bring about intolerance, rancor, bigotry and NEVER hate anyone. No, of course not. Only conservatives foment ‘’hate’’ and ‘’violence. Never mind that as other conservatives have found out, speaking on stage at certain venues can literally be dangerous. Ms. Coulter has been attacked a nimber of times by the ‘’peacfull’, ‘’tolerant’’ Left.

I'm a Canadian too. Where do you live? Toronto, Vancouver? IMO, only the big cities are the socialist hell holes you describe.

Canada is not a free country, they take your hard earned money with no chance of opting out to pay for things that we’ll never know the full extent of,

There is a country that does not do that?

I admire your spirited defence of ye olde Dominion on this thread. However a few thoughts to put things in a perspective. I would like to point out that to generalize as has been done might not show a true picture. I know that certain parts of Toronto are downright dangerous and Toronto has a certain reputation. The small Canadian city ain't like the place. Only game is shot at.

I am saddened at the apparent bad reputation of say Detroit, Michigan. Was treated very kindly there many years ago. Yet, if one went to small town Michigan, it is a different world. Like Petoskey, Michigan. Sort of like a dream world of peace and squeaky clean.

My little homilies will sooner or later get me into some flak, but still, it is nice to hold forth. Vis: freedom of speech.

I love it when lefties get their knickers in a wad over the indispensable Ann Coulter. The left's blatant hatred for Ann and utter contempt toward anyone that opposes their totalitarian policies is well known. Their predictable attempt to portray Ann Coulter as a 'hater' are usually ineffective. This Walker woman is preaching to the left-wing choir. I hope few will pay attention to her whining.

That Ann Coulter not only opposes the left's pathologies but uses biting sarcasm and humor to skew the left's pretensions is why she remains very popular, despite years of leftist's attempts to characterize her as 'dangerous' and 'hateful'. Hardly. Ann Coulter is aqccurate and effective, making her the source of much angina for the left. Go Ann!

I did 10 years in 2PPCLI, I served my country and I’ve seen what hellholes exist around the planet and what socialism/communism down like I said. If there was a free country to go to, I’d be gone. That’s why if the US revoltes, I’m going to help my southern neighbors restore freedom. I’m not your typical Canadian who thinks everything is “A” ok in this country. It once was a great country, now it’s a multi-cultural, bilingual nightmare.

A great deal of animosity towards Coulter by libs is the comedy gold Coulter mines from lib's words and actions. She merely points out their hypocrisy on numerous issues, and they can't stand it.
