Sadly and inexplicably,Â Fox News chose radical lesbian activist Susan G. Cole to represent Canada on one segment on the Coulter-In-Canada controversy. Here’s how Cole (who, as a playwright, has sucked on the taxpayer teat for most of her career) characterized my country:
We don’t have that same political culture here in (Canada). . . . We don’t have a 1st Amendment, we don’t have a religion of free speech. . . . Students sign off on all kinds of agreements as to how they’ll behave on campus, in order to respect diversity, equity, all of the values that Canadians really care about. Those are the things that drive our political culture. Not freedoms, not rugged individualism, not free speech.
It isn’t that Cole’s characterization is inaccurate. It really is word perfect, actually. More>>
I’m with the ‘intolerant’ Quebecers: The niqab deserves no more respect than a Vader mask
I dislike Islamic body bags and regard them as a form of degradation and an act of self-segregation. I say “Islamic,” but in fact as a mandatory expression of piousness they barely date back to the disco era. The niqab should command no more cultural respect than a guy walking into class in Darth Vader’s getup and demanding the women be removed from his line of vision. Â McLeans

“You’re just giving her a space for saying all this stuff she’s saying that’s inappropriate,” Richardson said. “They’re giving her a space to thrive on her controversy. I don’t know if she deserves that space.”
Other students said it would be inappropriate to kibosh Coulter’s talk.
“Just because people don’t agree with what is said doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be said,” noted computer engineering student Devin Smith, 21. “It encourages debate, which is good.”
Chemical engineering student Isra Hammad, 22, said as a Muslim, she finds Coulter offensive. But that doesn’t mean she should be gagged.”She should be allowed to say what she wants, then people can protest it,” Hammad said.
“If you prevent her from speaking, you only make her the victim.” -Read more:Â montrealgazette
