The totally spontaneous cancellation of Coulter’s speech due to Danger! Danger! Danger!

Yeah, RIGHT:

American right-winger Ann Coulter’s speech at the University of Ottawa was cancelled Tuesday night due to security concerns after thousands protested outside the venue.

A spokesman for the group that organized the event said there were fears for Coulter’s well-being after about 2,000 people gathered outside the venue to protest her presence there.

Although the event was cancelled, organizers said her Canadian tour will continue, wrapping up at the University of Calgary on Thursday.

You don’t need a degree in marketing to know what sells and what smells.   Well played, wingnuts.

AND FURTHERMORE… Could it be any more obvious?  Coulter gets protesters everywhere she speaks.  She’s had pies thrown at her from close range.  This isn’t someone who’s freaked out by protesters — protesters are a given at any Coulter event.

The University of Ottawa put this faux “cancellation” debacle in motion when they warned her to watch her mouth and the media picked it up and ran with it.  Now she’s gotten another day of publicity (read: another day to flog her book) and the wingnuts get to wank and run their mouths about being persecuted — mission accomplished!

    Good morrow, all!
    Tranny Annie would probably be the first to call for loud, strident and persistent protests to the passing of Obamacare. It’s interesting when the shoe is on the other foot.
    I wonder how many people actually WANT Ann Coulter to come to Canada to speak — or is she here just for the free clinics and cheap meds under our evil commie heathen socialist medical system?

    CTZen – :lol:

    Whatever she’d be speaking about, it’s a bit So What. Her best before date was about 2005.

    This whole “debacle” was on the agenda the second she got that email from the university. I’d bet the farm on it.

    It’s about as real as her supporters’ “free speechiness”.

    There are five — five — current threads on this at the Freaks, shrieking about how she was censored by variously, thugs, the university, unspecified liberals, etc. etc.

    Publicity stunt.

    Go read Dr Dawg for the most reasonable account I’ve yet seen.

    fern hill – I’m amazed that people didn’t see through this right away, it’s so primitive. “Free speech shut down” my arse :lol: More like *Never miss the opportunity to turn a little publicity into a lot of publicity*.

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, bricks are being thrown through office windows of Democrats who voted for health care reform – probably by folks who adore Coulter.

    Imabear – Bricks, and worse.

    They are losing their shit :shock:
