Ann Coulter's speech last night at the UofO was cancelled by police, who say they couldn't guarantee her safety. BCF has collected all of the relevant eye witness accounts here.
Susan Cole from the rag 'Toronto Now' sums up the left's position on the speech being cancelled in a televised interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News this morning.
SG: "Ann Coulter got exactly what she deserved."
MK: "Why do you believe that."
SG: "I don't think she's an appropriate choice to be speaking on campus' in Canada...We're trying to create an environment which is a safe place to think and learn and I don't think that Ann Coulter contributes to that."
MK: "Here in the United States...we believe the answer to speech you don't like isn't less speech, it's more speech, and that's the bedrock of our 1st Amendment, of which we're very proud."
SG: "We don't have that same political culture here in (Canada)....We don't have a 1st Amendment, we don't have a religion of free speech...."
MK: "Ann Coulter was invited to speak at the University, an invitation she accepted."
SG: "That's true, and it was inappropriate for those who invited her to invite her, because she wasn't going to contribute to an actual conversation, she was mostly going to provoke..."
MK: "When you ask Ann Coulter to speak, you know what you're going to get."
SG: "Have it at a Conservative Think Tank, have it at a lecture hall..."
Let's cut to the end.
SG: "Students sign off on all kinds of agreements as to how they'll behave on campus, in order to respect diversity, equity, all of the values that Canadians really care about. Those are the things that drive our political culture. Not freedoms, not rugged individualism, not free speech. It's different, and for us, it works."
MK:"It is different, not freedoms, and not free speech. Here in American, we had Ahmadinijad come onto the campus of Columbia University and speak, but that's us."
So there you have it. NOT Freedoms. NOT Free Speech. Elected Politicians and Canadian voters don't drive the political culture here, diversity and equity does.
If you're reading this, you're probably to blame. I am as well. The most damage done to the conservative movement since WWII has been done through INACTION.
Watch the whole disgusting clip here.
Ann Coulter is an ACTION HERO, she and Ezra should have their own ACTION FIGURES.
It was general conservative INACTION that allowed the HRC's to proliferate in the first place. Conservatives should have been outraged and reacted in 1979 when radical islamists burned 'Satanic Verses' and put a hit out on Salman Rushdie.
This isn't a game, it isn't a sporting event, it's a war - and this culture is fighting for it's survival.
Why did a majority of Canadians, who were there to hear a speaker, allow this to happen?
I think it's because they believe in the 'rule of law', and the liberal left do not. When told to leave by the police, they did.
So here's a lens through which you can view the state of our culture. Phone your MP's and tell them they're fired, better yet, inform them they're a redundant anachronism, a dinosaur, and that they simply no longer matter.
If Susan Cole is right, then all things can be measured by leftist elites who know better than you or I what is 'appropriate' for us to say or listen to. Everybody relax, Susan knows best, that freedom of thought and speech thing is just too tedious and difficult for the average Canadian.
I've never been embarrassed to be a Canadian, but watching this tyrannical bitch Susan Cole represent all Canadians on Fox News makes it clear I've got some explaining to do.
