Ann Coulter: ‘I’m the Victim of a Hate Crime’

Ann Coulter claims she is the victim of a hate crime after the University of Ottawa sent her a letter urging her to use "restraint, respect, and consideration" during an appearance there, reports the National Post:

Coulter  "Speaking to students and academics at the University of Western Ontario Monday, Coulter said the e-mail sent to her Friday by Francois Houle, vice-president academic and provost of the University of Ottawa, targeted her as a member of an identifiable group and as such, she will be filing a complaint with the Human Rights Commission alleging hate speech.

'I’m sure the Human Rights Commission will get to the bottom of it,' Coulter said to loud cheers from the 800-strong audience. 'I think I’m the victim of a hate crime here. Either what (Mr. Houle) did was a hate crime, or the whole commission is BS.'

In Houle’s e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by the National Post, the administrator urges Coulter to weigh her words with 'respect and civility in mind' when she speaks at the University of Ottawa campus Tuesday."

Said the letter, which an attorney who spoke before Coulter called a "veiled threat": "Our domestic laws, both provincial and federal, delineate freedom of expression (or ‘free speech’) in a manner that is somewhat different than the approach taken in the United States. I therefore encourage you to educate yourself, if need be, as to what is acceptable in Canada and to do so before your planned visit here. Promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges."

So what did Coulter talk about?

"Her 45-minute speech was loosely focused on political correctness, which gave her full reign to attack liberals of all stripes.

Liberals constantly complain their rights are being attacked in the same way blacks’ rights once were, she said.

'In America everybody wants to be black. The feminists want to be black, the illegal aliens want to be black, the gays want to be black,' she said.

Yet none of the complainers have anything serious to complain about, Coulter said.

'There are only two things gay men can’t do. Number one, get married to each other. Number two, throw a baseball without looking like a girl.'

But her jokes often had a serious point as well.

'Every Democrat in the past several election cycles that has run for president has sworn to attack gay marriage, but only Republicans get attacked for gay marriage.'

Backed by the mainstream media, liberals have turned political correctness into a weapon that attempts to silence people with opposing views, Coulter said."

    Coulter’s a hateful nasty skank, but that letter really was inexcusable. Love Canada, and they are way ahead of us in so many ways (health care, same-sex marraige, etc.) but they need to be a little less afraid of controversial views.

  2. Strepsi says

    I hate to admit it — really, really, really hate it — but she is right, our Human Rights Commissions here in Canada ARE total B.S. They cover ground that should be (and usually is) covered in the criminal justice system, yet they are extra-legal, requiring no proof. They are commissioners, and yet they can impose HEFT fines and ruin peoples’ lives. So Coulter is right there.

    On everything else, as usual, she is disingenuous — if you want to include things gay man don’t get as marriage, you should count that as 1,100 benefits not received, not simply one.

  3. nic says

    good god, she is feeling put upon because she was asked to be civil. she should be thankful that she has never been an actual victim of a hate crime. if anyone were to deserve a beat down, it is she. it is not for nothing that blonde bitches keep proving the axiom.

  4. says

    I’m not sure if it’s mentioned in the linked article, but she also told a Muslim woman in attendance that she should only be allowed to travel by camel. I shit you not.

  5. walter says

    oh how the protests change when the shoe is on the other foot. she feels the pit bull type attack is okay, when she’s the pit bull. but when the the pit bull is biting her she screams for animal protection. being the victim of a hate crime is a crime only when shes the victim . this bitch needs to be put down

  6. TampaZeke says

    The sound you hear is GayPatriot having an orgasm. Really, how is it possible that this hateful homophobe has gay friends? I have to wonder what a person would have to do to cross the line with some gay people.

  7. says

    Oh who the fuck cares what this skank has to say? Let her do and say whatever she wants, wherever she’s invited to do it, and let the laws of whatever country she’s in prevail. No one invites this twat to speak without knowing what they’re getting beforehand, so if she spouts off something that gets her or the inviting organization in to trouble, then they only have themselves to blame.

    “I can throw a pretty mean baseball, Ann. And I’d love to bean your trash-spouting head. See if you still think I throw like a girl after that, sweetie.

    The only hate crime you suffered is that your parents let you gestate full term.”

    Ugh. She’s vile.

  9. HomoDM says

    Worthless cunt. (She does have a point about Democrats being too cowardly on marriage equality to distinguish themselves from Republicans, however.)

  10. JT says

    Umm. No. To be the victim of a hate crime there must first and foremost be a crime committed. You may feel as if your rights have been violated, but if that right doesn’t exist in the country you are currently in…it isn’t a crime.

    Go to a Muslim country and use your US granted rights to free speech to insult Islam. (Please?)

    And Ann, you need to step up your crazy if you want to remain relevant these days. Why stop at hate crime? Really your statement in response to receiving a letter asking you to not be hateful (see also: yourself) should be: “I’m the Victim of a Holocaust”

  11. says

    So Miss Anorexic Crazy Eyes whines about her own manufactured victimhood (because someone in Canada wrote her a letter advising she be civil?) while accusing liberals of whining about their victimhood. Rich logic, Annie. She’s just a fame whore and 2nd rate stand-up comedian trying desperately to stay relevant (in Ottawa!) when she isn’t. You know even she doesn’t believe her own schtick for a second. It’s kind of odd she’s talking about gay men not being able to get married in a country where they are.

  12. griffin1573 says

    To those of you who think that,although you dislike her,that she’s right.Your wrong.
    Theres no hate crime in asking that, as a speaker,you speak in a civil manner.
    Say what you want.State your opinion.
    Just be civil about it.
    And as her history show’s she’s far from civil.

    I’ll state this again for the cow.
    A hate crime occurs when you call for violance against an individual or group.
    It’s very straight forward.
    I don’t understand why it’s concept is so difficult for people to get their minds around.

  13. JesryPo says

    News for Ann: I can not only throw a baseball, I can throw it very, very hard. I can also throw a football and shoot a lay-up. Has Coulter actually seen a gay man since 1985 (besides Matt Drudge?)

    If anything, I’d complain that as a group we’re TOO body-obsessed, masculinity focused, and muscle bound. Anyway, the nelliest of my gay friends could beat the lights out of my straight friends without spilling her Ketel One martini.

  14. Jman says

    The letter was appropriate considering this woman incites hatred wherever she goes, either for herself or whomever she’s talking about. There’s nothing wrong in asking a woman who is very disrespectful, and who yet demands respect for herself, to show some for other people.

  15. David in Houston says

    Does she even have ONE redeemable quality? I’m not sure if there has ever been a more worthless human being. Her only talent is spewing hatred. The fact that her Mom didn’t abort her, proves that God doesn’t exist.

  16. JT says

    @David in Houston:

    The fact that she will one day die. Everyone will appreciate the beauty of life so much more for having suffered through a world with her in it.

  17. Dawson says

    A victim of a hate crime? Is she serious. This is how hate crimes get deluted.

    What this bitch needs to do is to visit a hospital where someone is a victim of a hate crime. If this woman had ever been sexually violated she would never be so stupid to say such a thing. She has no idea what a victim of a hate crime has gone through.

    But this is the same woman who made fun of the widows of 9-11.

    Why do we take this woman seriously? Because there are stupid people who will believe anything she says. We can not ignor someone who has a chance of giving false information as fact. People believe this shit. This is why we have to take such a strong stand against her. She has a following no matter how much we hate her.

    What we have to be as a community is on her back at any public site that she speaks. We have to make it so uncomfortable for her that she will think twice about what she says if everywhere she goes people are making it uncomfortable for her. Like ‘Act Up’ this is one of the action we need to take to those who speak of hate.

    Like the witch in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ we need to pour water on her everywhere she goes.

  18. Glenn says

    Obviously, this was not a hate crime, and Coulter has major chutzpah to complaint about hate-mongering. But let’s be real here: that letter was not merely a request to be civil — agreed, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It was, rather, a thinly-veiled threat of criminal prosecution if she was not civil. That is a very different thing, and the sort of thing that thankfully in the US would be laughed at. Unfortunately, Canadian law makes it a credible threat.

  19. griffin1573 says

    Hardly a “thinly veiled threat” since the writer has no power to charge anyone with anything.
    Advising her that laws here would get her into trouble if she repeated some of the discusting things she said in the past or new ones.

    Is not a threat.

  20. DN says

    UWO is my alma mater. I’m drafting a letter to my alumni association, asking them to kindly never contact me again.

    Yes, Ann Coulter has the right to free speech (and the University of Ottawa is right, by the way, that free speech means something different in Canada than in the US), but UWO invited her to speak, *knowing* the kind of bile she spews.

    To think that my university could tacitly or implictly support this person is galling beyond belief. And guess what, UWO? I have certain freedoms, too – such as the freedom to never donate to you again.

  21. Daniel N says

    I’m a University of Ottawa student. While I support the content of the provost’s message, I feel it was 10 kinds of stupid to actually send it. Honestly, she says all the awful things she does to get attention. She’s probably the one who sent the letter to the National Post for them to publish. Now she can claim to be a victim. If they hadn’t sent it, she wouldn’t have gotten all the publicity, and then no one would listen to the Monster. In short, don’t feed the animal.

    A bunch of students (through the Pride Center on campus) are organizing a (mostly same-sex) kiss-in to protest her appearance. We’d send a message to her without giving her an international platform to express her horrible views.

  22. Gavin says

    “There are only two things gay men can’t do. Number one, get married to each other. Number two, throw a baseball without looking like a girl.”

    Funny — she has the opposite problem. Not sure she should be the expert on what “looking like a girl” would be. There’s apparently nothing she can do to look like one herself.

  23. TANK says

    Typical intolerance of intolerance is intolerance conservative mantra… When the only thing you have to defend is your hate speech, it seems a bit ironic that you’d label any criticism of it hate speech. Then, they say that they’re being censored…which is like a slave owner blaming his slaves for tennis elbow…

  24. Derek says

    I was so surprised that she was doing speeches here in Canada, she’s far mroe right wing than anyone in the country, I don’t know who would pay to go see her dumb ass

  25. jexer says

    It’s not a “hate crime” to discriminate against rude, vile, manipulative, divisive, arrogant, parasites like this particularly repulsive horse-faced sociopath.

    Not only is it NOT a crime, but I’d say it’s our duty to encourage anyone and everyone to ignore this exceptionally toxic windbag, and her small crew of propaganda spouting cronies.

  26. Randy says

    1. Hate speech is not criminal in Canada unless it specifically advocates extermination of a group (see recent anti-gay court case confirming this)
    2. Sending an email advising (incorrectly) of legal issues in Canada, to a foreigner, is not a hate crime, by anyone’s definition.
    It’s just bad advice.
    3. Ann Coulter of course only came to Canada to bash the Canadian way of doing things so she can pretend to be WonderWoman in the US. It has nothing to do with Canada.
    4. Good god Ann is ugly. If she was nicer to the gays, maybe someone would give her some tips.

  27. Dereck says

    Annnd her speech in Ottawa is cancelled because of protests. Thanks for coming up, it was lovely to have you now kindly return whence you came. xoxo, canada

  28. Darrell says

    She’s speaking in Calgary next, she will probably get a better reception there as Calgary is as right wing as Canada gets, though, she still has to come to grips that Canadians (even right wing-nuts) tend to be civil, If she can’t keep her pie-hole clean even Calgarians will not be impressed. Canadians of all stripes have very little patience with people like her who are rude, arrogant, and over rated.

    We have a running joke up here if your on tour in Canada your star tends to be fading somewhat since you have been overexposed in the States. Maybe this means her 15 minutes are up!
