OT: No taste for Coulter/Beck-style hate speech.

And, isn't it revealing that one of the most infamous hate groups in the world originated in the US? Very telling don't you think?
We have our own local hate group, the Quebec separatists, but they're the equivalent of cub scouts compared to the KKK.

Rightwing democrats. Personally, I couldn't give a flying fuck at a rolling donut about who what the Klan is. The bottom line is that there were some people who didn't think it was a good idea that some crazed coont oozed in via the entertainment channels just so she could shit on somebody's lawn. The chick is nuts and some canadians put their beer down long enough to explain to her that we really didn't want to put out too much energy guaranteeing her safety. So they cancelled her 'performance'. No biggie.
I wonder what would happen if we sent a comedian in Tim Burton make- up, like Coulter, down to the US and showered the audience with racial slurs. Weren't some of Michael Richards appearances cancelled after his infamous rant? Just TRY to make a 'n'-word joke in the 'Freedom-Of- Speech' USA. You have the 'right' to call a black man a 'n***r' don't you? . . . ...didn't think so...

Damn, and here I thought it was *you* that brought it up?

So, not only are you a homophobe, but a flaming sexist as well. I'm starting to think you only get along with white Canadian granite heads?
Good to know!

No biggie to a bunch of left wing, socialist, homophobic, sexist bigots I reckon.

Several years ago the KKK, mostly unheard of in these parts, for some reason decided to have an outside rally. No one invited them, and everyone wondered who the hell came up with this idea, since the KKK was never liked much in these parts, or seen for that matter, ever. I wondered if the KKK even still existed.
Well, I was wrong, a flock of I think 3 or 5 douche-bags showed up, and about 100 protesters protesting the KKK and about 200 cops, mostly black, protecting the crowd of 3 supposed klansman... We recognize free speech in this country, and it is a big deal, regardless of who is doing the speaking, and to most of us, free speech IS a big deal.
I guess you could come here and call a woman a "coont" if you wish, but doesn't sound like you are allowed that freedom in the great white north? Better watch for those cute little Mounties in jack boots hunting down hate speech...
Good luck!

Same reason as Coulter.

And that will boost the sale of her books. I'm sure she is thankful for the help. A better way to show disdain is to just not show up. That takes more courage than screaming or holding a sign in the street so you can get your own 15 minutes of fame.

Possibly, but just not showing up can be the tacit equivalent to giving approval. You've heard the old saying "if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. There's always those unwary, not experience enough or just plain gullible people who might otherwise be swayed by people like Coulter if there's no real objection to her appearing. And as I'm sure Coulter is aware, there's always going to be some that show up which is all she needs.
I'm sure similar happens and has happened with young impressionable Muslims. They may get drawn into what appears to be a social group and exit out the other end as terrorists, all on the initial basis of wanting to belong.
I for one (which is patently obvious considering my big mouth) believe that to just stand by and not publicly speak out to something I find objectionable is tantamount to giving my approval.
Hell, it might even be the wrong thing to do, but at least I'm trying to do something more than just sitting idly by. It's the social equivalent to watching a rape occur and doing nothing about it. I won't let that happen.

Sorry if offended your lifestyle, Jack... but I really don't have a problem with that.

Your words are homophobic and sexist. Whether I have a problem with that doesn't matter as much as does the Canadian Hate Speech police have a problem with that. Be careful and good luck!

No they're not.

No hate speech from me, and thanks for caring.

There are parallels. The same day that Coulter was ejected, the leader of a TV network in Venezuela was thrown in jail for "anti-government utterances." Also, about the same time, Google left China for being reluctant to comply with edicts "against the public decency and morality."
Canada is not the only country where wrongful speech is defined by the government.
