The University of Western Ontario has announced American right-wing commentator Ann Coulter will be on campus Monday night for a speech and book signing.
Her appearance has angered many in the community including director of the London Abused Women’s Centre, Megan Walker. She says Coulter is a divisive figure with dangerous opinions.
You say that like it’s a bad thing!
In the past, Coulter has referred to Muslims as “ragheads” or “jihad monkeys”. She’s also said the United States would be better off if women were not allowed to vote, because they typically elect Democrats.
Walker says she’d prefer Coulter stayed home.
“I am concerned that she’s coming to London. We pride ourselves in this community on standing up for those who are less fortunate than others. We pride ourselves in this community on standing up for those who don’t have a voice and being an inclusive community.” she said.
What do expect from someone named “Megan,” ferchrissakes.
Sounds like she forgot to put in her Irony Uterine Device…
A few days after Coulter’s appearance at Western, the University will play host to someone on the complete opposite end of the politcal spectrum.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. — the son of former U.S. Attorney General Robert F Kennedy and the nephew of JFK — will give a speech at Alumni Hall on the environment.
Megan has nothing to say about the presence of a non-“divisive” Kennedy in her “community,” even though Kennedys are the moral and political equivalent of toxic waste, and have done more to “abuse women” than Ann Coulter.
And women shouldn’t be allowed to vote, since too many of them are “Megans”. I happily forfeit my franchise if it means no more Obamas and, well, Kennedys.
Even I thought “ragheads” was stupid. But as far as “jihad monkeys” goes, here’s the actual quote:
“If you don’t want to get shot by the police, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then don’t point a toy gun at them. Or, as I believe our motto should be after 9/11: Jihad monkey talks tough; jihad monkey takes the consequences. Sorry, I realize that’s offensive. How about “camel jockey”? What? Now what’d I say? Boy, you tent merchants sure are touchy. Grow up, would you?”
She’s calling Goatboy and other Muslim terrorists “jihad monkeys”, see? Then again, I bet Megan would have been quiet about Goatboy’s speech at Columbia.
Does she know or care what beligerent Muslims call women and gays and Jews every day, without blinking? Not to mention the whole “killing people” thing.
(PS: hey Megan, how many Muslim women are hiding out in your women’s shelter right now? Wonder why?)
Oddly enough, some organizers of Ann Coulter’s visit to Canada have been interviewed by a number of media outlets (not this radio station), but tell me their quotes magically don’t make it to the final story…
However, Megan has been quoted widely, hinting that Coulter’s appearance in London is an incitement to violence.
Anyway: see the rest of you in London on Monday night.
