The appearance had been scheduled for Nov. 29 at the school’s Rose Hill campus in the Bronx, New York.

FTA President McShane had this to say: "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.”
Is it me or did he just describe our newly re-elected president? Bet he wouldn´t use those words if POTUS came to campus to give a speach. These Repub students should have either found a better speaker (and there are many) or held to their guns and kept Coulter.

FTA: "Vavala concedes that free speech is a right, but argues that Coulter has made a career out of insulting various minority groups."

And so the only conclusion that can be drawn is that free speech at Fordham is a right no more.

I remember the Catholic church when they were people of character. Their colleges and universities are no different than any secular school except in the tuition rates they charge. They stand for nothing.

Why mess with Fordham? They are legends only in their own minds. Prejudiced from the word go.

They cain´t hep it!

Their little brains can´t survive intellectual challenge.

And, they´ve just proved that they don´t know anything about the use of rhetorical devices like exaggeration, and they prove that they don´t read the books they condemn.

They´re ignoramuses. And the Repubs should have stood their ground by making the argument for vigorous intellectual debate. Every time Repubs or Conservatives back down, more ground is ceded to the Left.

The Left wins by piggish bullying.

Sarcasm (a la Ann Coulter) is now being confined to use only by Democrats, because in the hands of Constitutionalists (a better term I think than "republican" or "libertarian" to describe what we need to be) sarcasm is "hateful" and "unnecessarily provocative."

We are truly at a crossroads on free speech.

This kind of closed-minded dogmatism and censorship of opposing views is childish and sinister. It is a good example of what is wrong with American universities and why they produce drones to work and vote for characters like Obama and the Clintons. Once upon a time children went to college to expand their mental horizons and acquire a truly liberal education and point of view. That has all changed, as disgraceful episodes, of which this is merely the latest, continue to remind us. There do not seem to be any adults in charge of American universities any longer. Students seem to attend university thinking they already have all the answers and are there to teach the grownups the facts of life, social justice, international relations, etc. It would be funny if it were not ruinous.

I am Jesuit educated. And Fordham, GU, Notre Dame have managed to embarrass themselves in their slavish adoration of the left and Obama. That said, young Republicans and conservatives,especially those at Christian and Catholic schools, are going to have to start standing up for what they believe. The road is going to get a lot tougher.

The posters here have it exactly right. The Jesuits are Marxist to their core. My brother is a Jesuit, and I´m constantly getting lectured about the evils of war and how ashamed he is to be an American. (Funny, he never mentions abortion, though.) I once asked him what country did it right if we were so bad, and he gave me that "does not compute" look that liberals give you when you put them on the spot. I was then told that "it wasn´t that simple." The pastor at the local Jesuit univeristy church once gave a sermon about how both pro-life and pro-choice people are concerned about the sanctity of life. The congregation applauded him with those defiant liberal looks on their faces. I confronted him after mass and asked him what he meant and he defensively continued to lecture me on pro-choice Catholics. The Jebbies just couldn´t hide their glee when Obama ran for office. I used to substitue the word "Obama" for "Hosana" when we would sing that part of the mass. Finally, I quit going. I just couldn´t take it anymore.

But now I *must* wonder if these sources have been misleadingly edited.

Sandi Jackson acknowledged to NBC Chicago back in December that state officials had questioned her about a $69,000 discrepancy between her campaign finance reports and those of her husband.

Standing behind the liquor store counter the man quietly and anonymously goes about his job serving customers.

This a fascinating glimpse into the life of Onyango ‘Omar’ Obama, 68, the half-uncle of Barack Obama - and an illegal immigrant who Mitt Romney has already signalled should be deported if he wins his bid for the Presidency today.

A CIA document outlining a Mafia-connected plan to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro for $150,000 is among thousands of Robert F. Kennedy documents made public Thursday, just days before the 50th anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis. In the 1964 plan, the mob and "patriotic Cuban exiles" eventually settled on a payment of $100,000 for assassinating Castro, $20,000 for his brother Raúl and $20,000 for revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, plus $2,500 for expenses.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use linked with

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
