It was a very busy week for a certain person. The name "Ann Coulter" was pronounced so many times on T.V., at the radio and in the newspaper. That name didn't ring a bell. I had no clue who this person was. Was she a singer, an actress or a talk show host?! Didn't know.
So I googled her. Here what I found:
Ann Coulter was born in New York City and is 48 years old. She is an American social and political commentator, author and syndicated columnist. She graduated from different universities with a B.A. in History, a J.D. from the law school, a training from the National Journalism Center. She had a bunch of important jobs like at the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. She is also author of 7 books and she also published a weekly newspaper column. She had spoken many times in television and radio talk shows. So as you can see Ann Coulter is a very educated lady.
So my question is: How an educated lady like her can have comments like this:
In one interview she said that "Canada should be grateful that the US "allows" it to exist on the same continent. Canada better hope that United States doesn't roll over one night and crush them."
She stated that all Muslims should be on a no-fly list. A student asked her what she should use instead of a plane and Miss Coulter answered that she should ride a camel or a carpet.
About Canadians she stated: "You guys used to be so cool. You were smokers. You had epic hockey fights. We had half our comedians from Canada. Now you're all a bunch of girls named Francois."
Ann Coulter said: "We should all be Christians. All Jews should be perfected."
A comment about gay men: "They are two things they can't do, get married to each other (they can in Canada and some American states) and "throw a baseball without looking like a girl".
There is probably other comments that I can find. But it isn't worth it. It seems like each time Ann Coulter open her mouth it's not to make a conversation, it is basically to make a provocation.
She is totally anti-Canadianism, super hostility toward the government, the culture and the people of Canada. So why did she included Canada in her "Speaking Tour". Probably some people will say that SHE was invited by the University of Ottawa. Yes it's true. But she has to understand that she has to be careful of the speech she's making when she's invited somewhere.
She told the medias that there is no freedom of speech in Canada. Yes there is, and sometimes too much. But it doesn't mean that Canadians will let her say what she wants.
My opinion, she deserved what she got in Ottawa. We don't need somebody to come to Canada and make anti-Canadian statement. Stay where you are if you don't like us. I hope it's a good lesson for all Canadian Universities and hope that NOBODY won't invite her anymore!
