About two thousand noisy protesters is what it takes to get an Ann Coulter speech canceled, apparently.
That's the scene which transpired on Tuesday night at the University of Ottawa, where the right-wing author had planned a talk. Canadian media described the crowd as "boisterous."
"A spokesman for the group that organized the event said there were fears for Coulter's well-being after about two thousand people gathered outside the venue to protest her presence there," The Toronto Star reported.
Ahead of her spoiled event in Ottawa, the university's president sent Coulter a letter stating, "I would ... remind you, that 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."
Coulter circulated the test to right-wing media, claiming that she'd become the victim of a "hate crime." Then, she snarled at a Muslim student to "take a camel" instead of flying on commercial airliners.
