Oh look, another "controversial conservative" has discovered a way for automatic news coverage.
 
2017-04-20 07:36:01 AM  
Her successful career is a lesson to all who seek power in America. When someone first gives you a microphone, say something outlandish and full of contempt for humanity. You will immediately have the attentive, docile ears of at least one million Americans, warranting a substantial book deal. And off you go.

She tries so incredibly hard (14!) but I don't think the vast majority actually care about her other than as a punchline.  Not sure she'll get nearly the response and turn out she hopes for, although she'll claim it anyway in the proud Trump tradition.

"This is as clear-cut a case as it gets that public universities are using taxpayer dollars to shut down conservative partisan propaganda and hate speech, while allowing liberal reality-based speech only,"

FTFY - now it makes more sense.

I'm sure the fine upstanding... "students"... of Berkeley will accommodate her wishes and play right into her hands. Which is nice.

Is there a way to dump a bucket of pig's blood over her head while she's on stage, like in "Carrie"?

Why do that to pigs?  Let her spill her own blood.

It's expense to set up the sound system for her. They have to have special electronics to step down the frequency from harpy screech to a range humans can hear.

At this point, I think these right wing shiat stirrers go to Berkeley because of that over the top reaction they know they'll get, which will result in more news coverage for them. It's not as if Berkeley is some great bastion of conservatism, or even remotely considered a center of deep intellectual discussion and debate. It's basically every negative stereotype of liberals come to life.

And Bill Maher will have her on yet again to peddle it in her arrogant, ignorant, tight-ass way that only she can do. I think I'm going to be dropping HBO next month. It's repetitive and Bill Maher brings these misanthropic, terrible, attention whores and Seawards on because it generates anger. It's unwatchable and he shouldn't be rewarded for that. I'm done contributing to his salary.

I'd love to see a-la-carte TV on a micro level. "I'd like all of HBO except Bill Maher." And then they subtract whatever percentage he gets from my payment. I don't care if it's just a couple of cents.

Who is the idiot at UC Berkeley that keeps inviting these less-than-worthless people to speak? There's nothing to be gained from having them talk other than a riot. Coulter and the like are just trolls, happy to get attention by sowing discord.

It's good to have people present ideas that challenge people to think and to look outside of their boxes but Coulter and the previous person, Milo Yiana-whatever, were the farthest thing from that.

Non progressive speech  is prohibited
Not allowed
We refuse to allow "others" to express their thoughts and opinions.
We are the tolerant left and we will fark  you up.

Good.  Let's do both.  Too many people in this country are isolating themselves into their little echo chambers.  It's polarizing.

Campus conservative groups who think that inviting assholes somehow makes them defenders of free speech. They seem to have warped the belief in free speech to onlyapply to controversial speech. So protesters who say they hate Nazis can't be exercising free speech because normal people hate Nazis.

The worst thing to happen, for her, is if no one showed up and the event was a non event.

Ann coulter was here today.

"..And?"

Stop paying attention to her.

Anti-education, especially anti-higher education, is a core tenet of right wing philosophy. See how frequently terms like "ivory tower," "liberal brainwashing," "corrupt teachers union," and "academic elite" come up in these discussions.
 
2017-04-20 10:43:47 AM  
The real goal is to spark anything which they can spin as 'liberal outrage.'  The Fox viewership will be proud of her, for taking the conservative battle to  'the enemy.'

And the real story is that nearly one third of Anericans are buying that horseshiat.  We need to stop using 'news entertainment' as a cover for propaganda against our own people.

Difficulty: a group of students does want her to speak.  Now your analogy is akin to Berkeley cutting the power cause they're afraid the protesters can't hold their temper.
 
2017-04-20 11:10:41 AM  
Please, no riots or shouting her down. Look at her past talks about her "ideas". Show up, counter her arguments factually without screaming. Show her points to be invalid and/or manufactured in the best light. Put her on the defensive with factual arguments. Troll her with facts that show her to be a liar.

Don't get into a shouting match with her. Her persona thrives on "intolerant liberals" getting into a shouting match with her. That's how she makes her money, convincing the rubes she's right and that you are afraid to let her speak "truth". Calmly showing her truth to be manufactured bullshiat will do more damage to her than all of the yelling, screaming, and shouting her down ever could. Let her dig her own grave.

*this will be effective on more than just Ms. Coulter

I agree that she is a provocateur that feeds on attention.  But she isn't harmless.  For years people have mostly rolled their eyes at racists like her, but the lack of attention didn't stop her from motivating a lot of people to the state we are in now.  People's lives have been ruined, and those on the receiving end of her hate are under no obligation to take it gracefully.

And if no one shows up then she can claim victory by stating that all the Patriotic Conservatives who wanted to hear her speak stayed at home in fear of the Violent Left.

I like the idea of protestors silently holding up signs of damning Coulter quotes. Very effective.

Took me forever to get those dipshiats off my recommended list. And all I did was watch, and I think hit the like button, of a Bill Burr video. Those guys seem to have a weird crush on him.

It's possible Coulter has 6 mouths, and is singing the song that will end the Earth.

My question is, what racist group at Berkeley keeps inviting Nazi themed speakers that spout hatred and want to incite violence in the name of "Free Speech" not based on facts, just their opinion?  And, why do the administers allow such behavior, which I'm sure goes against Berkeley's code of conduct?

The SPA invited the Hate Skeleton, as they did with that asshole Milo. Opinion hate speech is not free speech. The Berkeley "dumb republiderp" facebook comments are so shockingly wrong. Do these kids take remedial history, philosophy, and government classes so they can graduate, or are the fundamental aspects of the US Constitution just not part of the curriculum?

Haha! That's funny. Every time I mention those morons someone talks about the pain and turmoil of trying to rid their recommended list of them. I too, had a similar issue because I was a fan of videogame and atheist content. I have managed to purge these retards but if you so much as think about social issues they re-emerge like a particular violent strain of herpes.
