Heh. As if.
After Professor Houle’s preemptive attack on the free speech rights of Ann Coulter, she has responded in her typical style: part satire, part serious, all attitude:
Speaking to students and academics at the University of Western Ontario Monday, Coulter said the e-mail sent to her Friday by Francois Houle, vice-president academic and provost of the University of Ottawa, targeted her as a member of an identifiable group and as such, she will be filing a complaint with the Human Rights Commission alleging hate speech.
“I’m sure the Human Rights Commission will get to the bottom of it,” Coulter said to loud cheers from the 800-strong audience. “I think I’m the victim of a hate crime here. Either what (Mr. Houle) did was a hate crime, or the whole commission is BS.”
Will she file the complaint? Quite possibly – but only to post the predictable rejection letter for entertainment value. More likely, she is only trying to give Prof. Houle a dose of his own…
