The racist, hatemonger is still coming
We knew this was coming, but a reliable, unnamed source tells us the Cleary University’s executive committee of the board of trustees met today and decided Ann Coulter would still speak Cleary University’s Economic Club Speakers Luncheon Series on Oct. 1.
Despite a recent overwhelming amount of contact with the board and the series sponsors saying Coulter should not be invited, nor should the racist, hatemonger be paid $30,000, the board ignored them. As many of you have posted your replies from President Tom Sullivan telling us to suggest speakers for next year, we knew this was coming.
The appearance is still five months away, so I think we should keep the pressure up. In that five months we can be assured of at least one thing: Coulter will say more offensive and discriminatory things. Maybe it will be enough to change their minds. However, I don’t know what more offensive thing she can do or say to change their minds after all of the crap that has come out of her mouth so far. Perhaps if she wore a white robe and hood to the podium at Crystal Gardens that might change their minds.
Or because this board is primarily made up overwhelmingly of Republicans, so maybe Coulter does speak for them.
