    Antifa is acting like the fascist they pretend to be against.

    Gotta love these far left snowflakes who are so delicate they can't ever hear anything they disagree with.

    They are modern day fascists.

    Everyone has a right to free speech, even hate speech by Ann Coulter is protected. So yes the ACLU is right to defend her. Even if what she says is wrong and dangerous it's still protected. Just like the people have a right to tell her her views are horse **** and should not be tolerated.

    LOL. By setting fires and threatening violence? That is not protected speech, Nut.

    Don't like what she says, don't go and listen to her. No one has a problem with others speaking their opinion of Ann, however, threatening violence like they did here or in Portland is dumb, fascist, and not protected speech. Even the far-left Bill Maher has spoken out recently against the left wing snowflakes shutting down free speech on college campuses.

    I don't think any college should be allowing hate speech on any campus. If she wants to do that on her own time fine. But Im sure the college was paying her to speak? Ann Coulter really needs to go away, maybe she should start an internet channel like the other crack pot Alex Jones.

    "Hate speech" a.k.a. as anything the left doesn't like.

    Sandra Bullock has the same affliction but that's ok.

    Do you ever tire of being wrong?

    On Feb. 10, 2017 ACLU lawyer Lee Rowland defended Coulter's fellow reprobate Milo Yiannopoulos, writing: "It’s easy to protect speech we agree with, but more important to protect speech we abhor."

    During an interview with NPR, Rowland expanded on this point saying:

    So, they've already made the point that cancelling a speech at Berkeley is a bad thing, but before Coulter's fame-seeking nonsense.

    And, they did this in the face of widespread criticism from liberals, and the reality that anti-facists and Nazis have clashed repeatedly, resulting in multiple arrests, assaults, and even stabbings by knife-wielding Nazis.

    I disagree with the "#antifa" movement's use of violence, and instead hope that students at the college go to hear Coulter speak and then engage in a robust debate about how such an obvious imbecile continues to earn Republican audiences.

    No speech that is actually hate. Can you not tell the difference? Of course not given who you voted for.

    "hate" speech, who gets to determine what it is?
    --- Post Merged, Apr 27, 2017 ---
    that depends on perspective my friend.
