Coulter thinks Jews will be "perfected when they become Christian", that only Black Republcians have earned a place in the political arena, called Der Trummper "the Will of a Christian God" and wanted Nikki Halley deported. Then to round out her crazy, she advocated more violence at Trump rallies,

 

Now days the students pay for most of the operation of their colleges, so if they don't want their campus besmurched by a crypto-Nazi, racist flake like Coulter, she doesn't get to speak on their campus.

 

You really need to find a way back from the 50's rk, labeling all your opponents "Marxist" went out of style when we got rid of tailgunner joe, and it's never regained even a modicum of success since.

And that, my friend, is not Fake news, that is the truth.


Do not the Conservatives at CPAC have the right to attend or not attend Milo's speech?  Do not the students pay for the University?

 

How did Consevatives get the right to keep Milo out but students have no right to keep Coulter out? 

 

Finally, how does this interfere with Coulter's right to speak freely?  Does she have the right to set up a soapbox in my living room without my permission? In my church?  In my place of business?


A political organization rightly has a political view and agenda. They properly push it. A university on the other hand is supposed to be apolitical.

 

If a speaker is invited to speak, they have the approval of the "powers that be". The Marxist mobs in the street are not supposed to be the "powers that be". But, more and more.......(and so it begins).

Do you have any thoughts of your own that might justify the "Horrible person" claim?

No need for bricks. That speech would be demolished by logic and reason there, just as it is here (snicker snicker). But this isn't about you, it's about Coulter.

 

Coulter has used FAUX and Breightfart as a megaphone to spread her litany of hate and slander and has become a bit of an icon for those who cannot think through a problem. The students rightly understand letting her speak on their forum would be tantamount to agreeing with her, since she does not offer reasoned debate, only vitriol and bile.


Let's get down to the basics without the sophomoric spellings and discuss her. What litany of hate? Please compare her to our posters who offer such intelligence as "Breightfart", "tRump", and despicable this and deplorable that about our President
