Ann Coulter's Speech Canceled At U Of Ottawa
Ann Coulter's speech at the University of Ottawa was canceled on March 23 over safety concerns. The University decided to cancel the speech that the controversial author was scheduled to deliver fearing detractors who turned up to protest Coulter's speech would turn violent. After the cancellation, Coulter did not have the warmest words for the University of Ottawa, calling it "a bush league school." She said she was never forced to cancel her speaking engagements at any University before. The author suggested she would file a human rights complain claiming to be a victim of a hate crime in Canada.

Coulter is an outspoken author and polemicist known for her controversial viewpoints. Coulter speaks out against liberals, feminism, environmentalists and non-Christian religions. Some of the things Coulter previously said have been quoted for years for their outrageousness.
Here are some of Coulter's quotes that really stood out over the years:
--On her controversial remarks: "I like to stir up the pot. I don't pretend to be impartial or balanced, as broadcasters do."
--On voting rights: "It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact."
--On Liberals: "Liberals hate America, they hate flag-wavers, they hate abortion opponents, they hate all religions except Islam, post 9/11. Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do. They don't have the energy. If they had that much energy, they'd have indoor plumbing by now."
--On terrorism: "We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war."
--On security: "If only we could get Muslims to boycott all airlines, we could dispense with airport security altogether." She also sad Muslims could use "flying carpets" to travel instead. When a Muslim female student called Coulter on that comment during one of her students, she told the student "to take a camel." See video.
--On Jihad fighters: "I believe our motto should be after 9/11: Jihad monkey talks tough; jihad monkey takes the consequences. Sorry, I realize that's offensive. How about "camel jockey"? What? Now what'd I say? Boy, you tent merchants sure are touchy. Grow up, would you?"
--On John Edwards: "I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm – so, kind of at an impasse, can't really talk about Edwards, so I think I'll just conclude here and take your questions." See video.
--On Jews: "We just want Jews to be perfected ... That is what Christianity is ... that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews." See video.
--On Barack Obama before he became President: "It's shocking that ... he's probably going to be our next president, President Hussein" and "[h]is first big accomplishment" was "being born half-black. ... He wouldn't be running for president if he weren't half-black."
--On the health care reform: "I might be in favor of national healthcare if it required all Democrats to get their heads examined."
--On the election of a Republican in Massachusetts: "The fact that a Republican is in the late Senator Kennedy's old seat must have him rolling in his grave, probably spilling his drink."
