    Default Hecklers cause Coulter to cut speech short

    STORRS, Conn. - Conservative columnist Ann Coulter gave up trying to finish a speech at the University of Connecticut on Wednesday night when boos and jeers from the audience became overwhelming. Coulter cut off the talk after 15 minutes and instead held a half-hour question-and-answer session.

    "I love to engage in repartee with people who are stupider than I am," Coulter told the 2,600 people at Jorgensen Auditorium.

    Coulter's appearance prompted protests from several groups, including Students Against Hate and the Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center. They criticized her for spreading a message of hate and intolerance.

    Nearly 100 students gathered inside the Student Union for a rally against Coulter. About a half-dozen people held protest signs outside the auditorium.

    After a book signing following her appearance, Coulter called the audience's reaction "typical."

    Coulter, originally from New Canaan, Conn., has a history of bashing Democrats in best-selling books, frequent television appearances and speeches. Harding University in Arkansas dropped her from its lecture series in September, citing her abrasive image.

    Last April, the president of the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota denounced a speech on the campus by Coulter, calling it hateful. In October 2004, University of Arizona police arrested two men who ran on stage and threw custard pies at Coulter; one of the pies glanced off her shoulder.

    In her speech at UConn, Coulter called Bill Clinton an "executive buffoon" who won the presidency only because Ross Perot took 19 percent of the vote. She called California Sen. Barbara Boxer a good candidate for the Democrats because "she is a woman and she's learning disabled."

    During the question-and-answer session, someone asked Coulter if she really was against a woman's right to vote.

    "Not having women vote is a joke," she said, reversing comments she has previously made.

    Eric Knudsen, a 19-year-old sophomore journalism and social welfare major at UConn, didn't attend the speech.

    "We encourage diverse opinion at UConn, but this is blatant hate speech," said Knudsen, head of Students Against Hate.

    Kareem Mohni, a 20-year-old junior and a member of a campus Republicans group, said he was disgusted with the Jorgensen crowd.

    "It really appalled me that we're not able to come together as a group and listen to a different view in a respectful environment," he said.

    I think Kareem doesn't get that Coulter is finally getting a taste of her own medicine. The woman has never been able to respectfully listen to another point of view that does not mirror her own. I wish I could have seen this. I would have laughed my ass off.

    Too bad the crowd didn't go crazy and kill her hateful ass. She enjoys talking to people who are more stupid than herself? Geez she must not have that many conversations then.

    Coulter couldn't argue her way out of leaving the tip.
    Her essays are filled with non-sequitors and when she
    does engage in personal attacks she reveals a putrid
    sense of humor. This is why Nixon's practical jokes
    in his political campaigns were seen as "dirty tricks" --
    because the man was a mean-spirited prick.

    She's a showman. She plays that obnoxious persona to the media because she knows people eat it up, whether they like it or not. Most celebrities are guilty of this in one way or the other, they just don't claim to be better or more intelligent than the average person.

    I actually think she is a hate filled nasty bitch, who is getting what is coming to her. She is disrespectful and thinks her shit doesn't stink. So someone at UConn gave it back to her? Good, I say, people should be more in her face.

    Coulter: Canada is "lucky we allow them to exist on the same continent"
    Stupid bitch, she needs to come here and say that. Yes we Canadians are kind, polite, nice, laid-back etc, BUT do not underestimate our national pride.

    She thinks it was rough in Connecticut.

    Again I say.... Stupid should hurt!

    Heh that nazi hag is a piece of shit on this Earth. Besides her being a complete rasicst hag, she's also a complete nutjob. I don't think I need to remind you guys of her "We should bomb their countries and convert them to Chirstianity" line. IMO I think we the American (and Canadian) citizens should get a stockpile of weapons and bomb her ass at the Fox News Station. It'd be killing 2 assholes for the price of one.
