The “tolerant” left

I’m not a fan of Ann Coulter. She’s a little too bombastic for my taste but I really do appreciate how she can make the left apoplectic. Ms. Coulter is currently on tour giving speeches at Canadian universities – with a predictable response from the left. (more here)

OTTAWA—Security officials have scrubbed American right-winger Ann Coulter’s speech at the University of Ottawa after a boisterous protest prompted concerns for her safety.

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.

Apparently she was “allowed” to give a speech at the University of Western Ontario the previous evening.

This is just another incident that demonstrates the “tolerance” of the left. (more here, here, here and here) In their worldview, if you don’t agree with them, they will try to shut you down – you have no right to voice an opinion. They are not interested in debate if you have a different point of view, and you have no right to even voice a different opinion. And yet we are told over and over how tolerant and progressive and intelligent these people are. It’s incidents like this that clearly demonstrate the opposite.
