Freedom of speech for liberals only

They're both blonde women, receive loads of media attention and inspire deep passions, both for and against.  But one is considered liberal; the other conservative.  So when both are invited to speak at a college campus, whose appearance is deemed so controversial that groups are forming to Stop the Hate and inspires an opposing editorial in the campus newspaper?  Why the conservative speaker. Of course.

Ann Coulter, the witty and/or acerbic conservative political commentator and writer, caused the above skirmish as a result of the invitation issued by the University of Connecticut College Republicans.

Huffing and puffing as they practice their ideology of freedom of speech for me but not for thee, the campus liberals whined about her forthcoming presence, demonizing her. Some students on campus said Coulter is a "hateful" speaker and fear she will marginalize certain student groups.

Of course they didn't specify how she would marginalize them or what is so hateful about her; perhaps realizing that not everyone agrees with them would do it, poor things.

Oh, that liberal speaker on campus who didn't cause such an uproar? Why that was none other than Cindy Sheehan.
