Canada Makes Ann Coulter Mad
I'm grateful to Francois A. Houle, provost of the University of Ottawa, a person I'd never heard of before last week. He had the forethought warn a woman known for her vitriol about Canada's laws regarding speech. He knew of her racist slurs, her lack of boundaries, her willingness to demean others. He knew exactly what was coming. He intervened with a warning that she might be violating Canada's human rights laws.
Then came the protesters in Ottawa, two thousand strong. And that's how Canada made Ann Coulter mad. Okay, not that mad. She's filing a complaint with the Human Rights Commission, and honestly, she's having a great time with it.
"You use the lowest level, volatile words, and yet you're a smart girl," talk show host Joy Behar told Coulter later. "Why do you do this?"
Coulter said, "I give a fantastic speech. When 7,000 people laugh it was funny."
Behar: "This kind of hate speech that's going on now hast to stop."
Coulter: "200 kids were bringing rocks and sticks to my talk."
Behar: "That's the problem with hate speech. It begets other hate speech."
