Gem of the Week: Oh Canada, What A-Houles You Are!

By culturecrusader

EXCERPTS:

Conservative columnist and best-selling author, Ann Coulter is visiting Canada this week where she is scheduled to speak at three universities. (Boy, I hope they’re paying her a lot of money for that!)  However, before she even got off the plane, a senior University of Ottawa administrator warned her to use “restraint, respect and consideration” when speaking at the school.  In an email to Ann, Academic provost and all-around douche-bag, Francois Houle, wrote:  “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… I therefore ask you, while you are a guest on our campus, to weigh your words with respect and civility in mind.”  He said some other things too, but I don’t want to offend the sensibilities of average Americans.  By the way, I wonder to how many Jihad-chanting Muslim speakers he sent that kind of an email before they arrived on campus to speak.

Anyway, it’s all good because Ann, being smarter than your average college guest-speaker and infinitely smarter than the liberal provost of some third-rate Canadian university, has turned the tables and is claiming that the provost, by his email, targeted her as a member of an identifiable group, namely conservatives, and as such she will be filing a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission alleging that she is now the victim of hate speech.  Go Ann!

When jackasses like the University of Ottawa provost are able to wield a criminal statute like a martinet school master would a yardstick, any kind of insanity can ensue.  But should we expect anything less from a university administrator in the age of political correctness?….

….I will continue to exercise my right to free speech and, to prove the point, with all due restraint and respect, I cordially invite the University of Ottawa provost and, every other French-speaking Canadian, to suck frozen moose [genitalia].

    March 24, 2010 at 5:46 am | Reply How nicely you’ve avoided mentioning WHY Houle sent her that email. And way to say something that makes no sense at all when you imply that “jihad-chanting speakers” are welcome at the university.

    The funny thing about your (and Coulter’s) brand of conservatism is that you drape yourselves in slogans of freedom, constitution, etc. and yet 1. you only take your definition of those things as the right one and 2. you don’t even realize (do you?) how that makes you oh-so-close to the kind of people that made Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union possible.

      March 24, 2010 at 5:56 am | Reply Thank you for letting me know not only what “brand” my conservativsim is, but also what I do and do not realize. As for your reference to Nazis and Soviets, weren’t they the ones who were big on enacting laws that proscribed what they deemed to be “hate” speech?

      • Maciek Says:
        March 24, 2010 at 6:13 am Well no, they weren’t into any kind of free speech – except when it was their ‘free speech’ they were talking about. They were also very much into making vague references to liberty, natural laws, and all other kinds of good sounding stuff, except that the only definitions of those things they accepted were ones that suited their purposes – sound familiar?

    Maciek, you can rewrite the history books for generations to come (as your movement is doing), but you can’t change the truth about what Hitler, Stalin and other like regimes have done to acquire their power. My family tree is missing many limbs because that history you refuse to honestly acknowledge. You are blinded by your own ideology and by what you want everyone else to subdue too.

      March 24, 2010 at 10:38 am | Reply I’m not sure exactly what you’re getting at. First, last time I looked I didn,t have a movement (or an ideology), nor was I part of one, nor do I want to belong to any movement, group political party, or pretty much any other collectivity you can think of. Second, I myself was born in communist Poland and so very much felt on my own skin how the people who make such regimes possible think and operate – and I stand by what I said above.

      Just because you say that you’re on the side of justice, liberty, and so on – doesn’t make it so.

      But if you want to continue going on in thinking that freedom means freedom to carry guns, and spit on those you don’t like, and keep whole swathes of your population in poverty and without health coverage – then that’s that I guess.

    March 24, 2010 at 8:16 am | Reply Wow..
    I’m a French speaking Canadian and would have loved to listen Coulter’s speech! I am all for banishing laws regarding our so called Free Speech!
    It frustrates me that I can’t use the word Midget without getting scoffed at!
    It’s frustrating to have to think before I speak in case I would offend anyone. I’m tired of hearing about all the jewish/musleum/palestenian/arabic bullshit. I wish they would have stayed in their country instead of coming here and bringing all their baggage with them!!

    I’m sorry but Coulter should educate herself a little more about the French Speaking Canadians!! We “Quebeckers” are the ones that fight and stand up the most against this politically correctiveness

    March 24, 2010 at 12:42 pm | Reply Canadian hate speech, as it was so referred to is meant to stop an escalation of abuse from one group to another. We are free to speak our minds, as this very bog indicates. There will be no secret police knocking on our doors, no show trials for subversion. I you knew what was meant by what Houle said then you’d understand why it was said. Coulter has a reputation in the US, and it crawled its way up to Ottawa and other places. Houle was protecting the University’s interests, not necessarily speaking for the whole country. I’m sure there are American Universities that would muzzle her as well. I don’t agree with the 2 thousand people who blocked her appearance, as far as I’m concerned (and many others who have voiced their opinions), she should have been allowed to speak. Many people wanted the chance to debate her here. Those people who blocked the appearance are no better than those in the US or Canada who stifle opinions or shove their own views down someone else’s throat. Sound familiar?

    You tearing into Canada without the facts sir, is moronic. Just about as moronic as Coulter’s insults. Here’s fact – like it or not – we’re another country with different traditions, different culture and different laws. We are NOT the US, and insulting us because someone here said something to offend someone there is just plain stupid. The fact that American conservative are making such a big deal out of nothing is only perpetuating people’s opinions and moving them more to the left. Keep insulting people, yeah, that’ll gain your movement support.

    She got what she wanted. More ink and airtime at home, and a faux cause about which to spout more drivel.

    March 24, 2010 at 6:33 am | Reply Not really unless you want to talk about Progressives using code words like: “compassion” and “social justice” when what they really mean is Marxism. The Canadian “hate speech” law is akin to several of the first steps the Nazis took when they assumed power: i.e., telling the press and the citizenry what could and could not be said. I would think as a liberal, which is what I presume you are, that that would be something of a concern to you.

    Yeah, sure it is. And the right to bear arms is written somewhere in the bible, and all muslims are evil, and universal healthcare is a conspiracy to take away all god-fearing people’s right to eat nachos, drink beer, watch football and stay stupid, etc, etc.

    Argh! Why did I come to this site just to tear my hair out at the total imbecilities spouted by you and all the other misguided fools who think that wisdom comes from the mouth of a woman who’s one step away from being a neo-nazi.
