Freedom of speech for me, not for thee

By

As we explained here recently, a blonde woman can speak freely at the University of Connecticut as long as she utters the proper politically correct phrases:  Bush bad; me good.  Cindy Sheehan was not interrupted by the relatively few students who are not afraid to affirm their conservatives beliefs,  when she spoke thusly at the school recently.

But affirming proper politically correct behavior——freedom of speech for me but not for conservative thee——liberals made sure another blonde woman, who was a conservative, couldn't express her ideas freely.

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.

This is apparently typical of universities, those bastions of freedom of speech for liberals only.

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.

Hateful is in the  closed ears and mind of the liberal  listener; stating Bush is good is thus defined as hateful speech; throwing pies , interrupting the speaker is thus liberal loveful.

And the U of Conn is supported by taxpayers, many of them conservative.
