The tactics of the left to silence opponents on university campuses is becoming an increasing problem. It is one of those sam alinsky tactics. I'm glad that the kids at the University of Western Ontario and the University of Calgary are more mature and allowed Ann Coulter to speak. If the censor houle wants to reddem himself , he should invite Ann back!
Here is a list of what you shouldn't discuss on campus.
Here is a good piece by a Prof from the University of Montreal.
The University of Ottawa's cancellation of a speech by U.S. author Ann Coulter reveals a disturbing trend in political correctness on North American university campuses.
Coulter had been invited to the university campus by a conservative group, but the event had to be cancelled after it became clear that neither the university nor local police would guarantee her safety.
The tactics of Coulter's opponents follow a long line of similar incidents. Fearful of being labelled "intolerant" - the most devastating accusation that can be laid at anyone around universities - opponents of speakers frequently seek to manufacture a situation in which "public safety" is a risk, thereby giving the administration an excuse to cancel the event.
The phenomenon affects speakers on both the left and the right, although it appears that the tactic has been most effectively used in Canada against those whose views are more conservative than those of the student body.
Scot Reid ( the beer and popcorn idiot) thought the protesters were at the u of o made a first down by preventing Ann from speaking. He was on CFRB this morning.
