Stop protesting Ann Coulter

News & Politics

So Ms. Looney Tunes sparked the usual wails of outrage over at UConn:

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. [Associated Press via Eric Fauss]
Here's my new rule: stop protesting the Coulter. The only people who take Ann Coulter seriously these days are lefties. Pretty much everyone else in the world -- including the conservative establishment -- mainly wants to pretend she doesn't exist in the vain hope that the gal will simply go away. So all that banner-waving and booing just makes her look like she is actually sane as opposed to what she really is: some crazy chick off her meds.

Next time Coulter visits your campus or town, I suggest protesting cuts in mental healthcare instead. Let's show her that we bleeding hearts really, really care.
