Outrageous… Fordham University Pressures Campus Republicans to Cancel Coulter Speech

The President and far left student groups at Fordham University pressured the campus Republican group to dis-invite conservative Ann Coulter from speaking at the university.

Fordham University president Joseph McShane, S.J., faulted campus College Republicans for inviting Ann Coulter to speak, saying that her rhetoric appeals to the “darker side” of human nature.
The Huffington Post gloated:

Controversial conservative pundit Ann Coulter was invited — and then disinvited — to speak at Fordham University in New York last week.

Fordham President Joseph M. McShane, S.J., chastised his campus’ chapter of the College Republicans for inviting Coulter — who recently referred to President Obama as a “retard” — to speak on campus, paying her with student fees. He addressed the entire university with his decision in a campuswide email.

“To say that I am disappointed with the judgment and maturity of the College Republicans, however, would be a tremendous understatement,” McShane wrote. “There are many people who can speak to the conservative point of view with integrity and conviction, but Ms. Coulter is not among them. Her rhetoric is often hateful and needlessly provocative—more heat than light—and her message is aimed squarely at the darker side of our nature.”

McShane said preventing Coulter from speaking would “counter one wrong with another,” and explicitly stated he wouldn’t forbid the CRs from having her speak at the Jesuit university. Nevertheless, the Fordham CRs beat him to it anyway and quickly rescinded the invitation to Coulter.

That’s really sad in so many ways.

More… A Fordham conservative just informed me that pro-abortion radicals RFK Jr., David Axelrod, and Ralph Nader were all welcomed on the Catholic campus to indoctrinate the students in recent years.

    Fordham is a drug-infested slum. It’s a shadow of what it used to be. Might as well call it Bronx Community College — which is still being generous.

    If you have a choice between receiving a Fordham diploma and 1,000 shares of Solyndra, go with Solyndra. It’s worthless, but at least you won’t catch crabs from the Solyndra stock.

    might just be a blessing in disguise..

    just sayin’..

    McShame you say.

    Does Coulter have to pay for the sins of Obama, too. Who had to die for trying to do the work of American and was slaughtered denied help 3 times.

    You would think I was speaking about Christ but I am speaking about Stevens and 3 other Americans. THEY HAVE BEEN DENIED THEIR LIFE.

  • Solaratov

    It looks like the Fordham CRs are just a bunch of nutless wonders.

    There seems to be a lot of that going around these days.

    Sad days.

    I hope Man Coulter gets dis- invited from FOX and the whole gig for pushing her brand of New England Rockafella Romney and Christie Rinos during the primaries. ….She helped put Tea Party gains into reverse by acting on a reflex social issue bigotry hostile to more conservative candidates on account of gay marriage and abortion…when we have much bigger issues to confront.

    Her calling Obama a retard down the closing stretch may have been an intentional macaca level gaffe to seal Romney’s defeat….because she is really a media matters David Brock in drag planted in our party for sabotage….and the same goes for that little Dick Morris too…the ” buy my book ” pimps….

    Man Coulter comes out of the ivy league school of elitist whose #1 issue agenda is to make the human race gay and birth controlled so population rates decline…She is only here to play us to lose and make money off us .

    Invite Michelle Bachmann or any number of other Republican women who actually hold elected office and can effect public policy , speak our beliefs effectively, and demonstrate how women can advance to powerful positions in our party .

    I’m thinking that Fordham CR branch must have a picture of John Boehner on their wall. Just sayin…

    Coulter is nothing compared to what we are going to see in the future. The many things that the left are going to do. The many rights that will be taken away. We have seen and heard so much silliness over the past few years.

    This is an issue for Coulter she has become too familiar with and it has happen before but it will come a common occurrence in the months and years to come.

    Obama has nothing to lose nor do the progressives. They truly believe they are better than those who defy their beliefs and more they win, they more they will insist it’s their way or the highway. Obama seems to be more threatening and he really believes he has nothing to lose. So, does the McShame character and he isn’t afraid to use his power, too.

  • Sasja

    I have to agree with donh. There are many conservatives who would be much better than Coulter (who is no conservative). I really don’t care what she calls the Preezy, she exhibits no class without name calling.

  • Sandy

    The Democratic Party (in name only) Won* the election and now has to shut down all free speech from the other side. Ah yes Democracy I remember it well.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    That’s really sad in so many ways.

    Is that all? Have any of the campus Republicans notified F.I.R.E. yet?

    If not, then that explains why the Left has made the kind of inroads into education that they have – no one on the right is fighting back.

  • Patrick

    This isn’t necessarily true. As a member of the Fordham College Republicans, I can tell you that the invitation was revoked on basis of further examining some of her comments. We had ended up pissing off conservatives nearly as much as liberals by inviting her (certain ones, anyways), so we rescinded the invite before Father McShane shamelessly sent the e-mail to every single student. Couldn’t he have at least talked to us before shamelessly calling us out?

    They’re only trying to protect the diversity of left of center and far left of center thought!

    CR’s, please remember to record carefully the words used against the appearance of Coulter at your university, and use the EXACT words when the next radical leftist hatemonger is brought in to speak on your tuition dime. Use them loud, use them proud.

    You’ll lose, but you will illustrate the hypocrisy of the left boldly.

    Also, Hilter and compared him to a Monkey.

    And then there was this and it was truly the only kind thing I heard from a democrat.

    [O]ur country will recognize the hardship President Bush faced these past eight years — and how extraordinary it was that he accomplished what he did in the wake of the September 11 attacks. The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

    Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies…
