So Ms. Coulter Was Worried About Limiting Her Speech?

It doesn't seem to have stopped her from spouting her usual bigotry:

On Monday night, Coulter sparked controversy when she spoke to about 800 people at the University of Western Ontario in London. ...

But the regular Fox News commentator drew outrage from some, including a 17-year-old Muslim student who asked her a question about her views on Muslims.

Coulter has said all terrorists are Muslims and has suggested all Muslims be barred from airlines and use flying carpets.

When the student said she didn't have a flying carpet, Coulter told her to "take a camel."


and this woman wants to whine and snivel about a handful of protesters at University of Ottawa?

I'd say she had her chance to make her speech, she made it, and people got outraged. Gosh ... who woulda thunk it?

Frankly, Ms. Coulter has shown herself to be a bigot and a racist. If we can ban a British MP for holding opinions that the HarperCon$ find difficult to stomach, one might just wonder what kind of "free speech" we're promoting by letting a nutcase like Coulter into Canada?

[Update]
According to the G&M, she's hired Ezra Levant to prepare the complaint on her behalf:

“I would like to know if any Muslim has been treated this badly, at least since the Reformation, because I am drawing a blank,” Ms. Coulter told The Globe.


Ummm...wow. So after telling a Muslim student to 'take a camel' instead of flying, she thinks she's hard done by because her views are sufficiently outrageous that people actually called her out.

She also took a swipe at Canadians, saying this country has lost its edge.

“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.”


Oh ... how nice. Great way to win friends and influence people, Ann. Perhaps in some future life, you might learn this funny Canadian value called 'respect'.
