Mommy, Don't Let Them Hurt My Feelings!

I don't think I've mentioned this, but Ann Coulter is coming to speak at SU in a few days. As I've said a few times before, I'm not a real big fan of hers (although How to Talk to a Liberal does have its moments), and I think she does a lot to discredit the larger conservative movement, but when I see things like the following letter to the Daily Orange, it almost makes me want to fully support her just to piss off the immature douchebags on the left. I present it here unedited and with little further commentary:

Event will infringe on student rights

Sadly, we must bring to your attention yet another example of offensive and insensitive programming sponsored by our university. On March 8, Ann Coulter will be speaking at the invitation of the College Republicans.

If you are not familiar with her work, a quick Google search will let you know what's up. Ann Coulter's openly racist, sexist and hateful remarks violate Syracuse University's non-discrimination policy. Have we learned nothing from HillTV about respect for our fellow human beings? Evidently not.

This is not an issue of free speech and hearing "both sides" of an issue. Her remarks directly infringe upon students' rights to feel safe and included in the campus community. At this point, we find it unlikely that this kind of oppressive "entertainment" is due to white privileged ignorance and probably has more to do with overt, unashamed racism.

Hey, Kettle, some guy named Pot called. He says you're black.


We in the Student Environmental Action Coalition must wonder how Ann Coulter's paycheck compares to the annual funding for student organizations fighting for the right of respect and dignity for all people. We urge all of you to express your concerns.

As I said, I don't really need to add much. Just keep in mind that this letter is coming from people who most likely supported Michael Moore's visit to SU in 2004. Because, you know, he's never offended anyone.

So Ann Coulter coming to Syracuse is Whitey's way to keep the pigmentd peoples of the world down?

A good question to ask would be "Do you frequently believe that the whole wolrld is out to get you?" Because we have Haldol for that.

She came to UConn last semester too. ... She ended up leaving early because the crowd was so rude. Of course, there was also an internal UConn 'scandal' too. That didn't help. It was so bad in fact that it made national news. Hope it goes better for you all.
