Someone named Tabatha Southey at the Globe & Mail writes:
The left in Canada ought to have worked alongside the International Free Press Society (whose board members include Ezra Levant, Kathy Shaidle, far-right Dutch political leader Geert Wilders and Mark Steyn) and aided Ann Coulter in carrying out her speaking tour of Canada.
Wow! I don’t even require a little explanatory chyron, like “big, fat, stupid bitch who needs to get raped” (a gay leftwing male fave!)
PS: If you’re ever looking for stealable adjectives to stick in front of my name, you can choose from “anti-semite,” “shill for the New World Order,” “afraid of the Jews” and even “leftist gay militant open immigration supporter” here.
But here’s what matters:
Contrary to what this woman and every other “journalist” in Canada is reporting, Ann Coulter did NOT say Muslims “shouldn’t be allowed to fly in airplanes.”
Even the 17-year-old Muslim student who asked Coulter that now famous question at her London speech (and got the reply “Take a camel” — which was MY line, but we won’t go into that right now, sniff) got it right.
If the media had actually paid their new little pet Muslim the courtesy of listening to her actual question, instead of just stealing each other’s lines the next day, said media would have heard her ask Coulter about her support of a “boycott of airlines by Muslims.”
As Coulter explained on Fox News last night (see video), she had been responding to the Flying Imam’s “threat” to “boycott” airlines back in 2006.
At which time, Coulter quipped (and it took me maybe five minutes to find this on Google):
Six imams removed from a US Airways flight from Minneapolis to Phoenix are calling on Muslims to boycott the airline.
If only we could get Muslims to boycott all airlines, we could dispense with airport security altogether.
See? Jokey jokey ha ha.
Now, I realize some people actually find Ann Coulter’s jokes more “offensive” than the idea of babies being burned alive (right along with Coulter’s best friend) in a burst of flaming jet fuel on 9/11.
But those people are turds.
Any more questions?
So: no “ban”.
If a “boycott” is a “ban”, then Martin Luther King, Jr. was “banning” bus riding.
