Ann Coulter has been a mainstay of Young America’s Foundation’s lecture program giving lectures on college campuses since 1998. This week Ann has been touring Canada courtesy of the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute and her events have been the target of a number of hateful protests from the Left. Through the years the Left has tried to intimidate Ann from speaking including throwing an orange at her during a speech at her alma mater Cornell and at the University of Arizona when another group of leftists attempted to hit her with a pie.
Ann is not the only speaker who has faced violence while speaking on college campuses. Pat Buchanan was doused with salad dressing and leftists also attacked David Horowitz.
In her latest column, Ann writes how leftists protested her speech at the University of Ottawa by burning books. This isn’t the first time this has happened at campus lecture. Leftists at Syracuse University were compelled to burn a Bible following a speech by Pat Buchanan.
Its ironic that the Left always proposes speech codes on college campus to protect students from “hate speech” yet they are they greatest instigators of hate on any given campus!
