College Repukes: "We have chosen to cancel/rescind Ms. Coulter’s invitation to speak at Fordham"
Response from the College republicans.
"The College Republicans regret the controversy surrounding our planned lecture featuring Ann Coulter. The size and severity of opposition to this event have caught us by surprise and caused us to question our decision to welcome her to Rose Hill. Looking at the concerns raised about Ms. Coulter, many of them reasonable, we have determined that some of her comments do not represent the ideals of the College Republicans and are inconsistent with both our organization’s mission and the University’s. We regret that we failed to thoroughly research her before announcing; that is our error and we do not excuse ourselves for it. Consistent with our strong disagreement with certain comments by Ms. Coulter, we have chosen to cancel the event and rescind Ms. Coulter’s invitation to speak at Fordham.We made this choice freely before Father McShane’s email was sent out and we became aware of his feelings – had the President simply reached out to us before releasing his statement, he would have learned that the event was being cancelled.

1. Good on them for showing a little integrity -- an American value
...as opposed to the fear-and-hate besotted "Republican Values" promoted by Coulter and her sorryass ilk of overpaid propaganda pimps.
I applaud these young "skulls full-of-mush" from Fordham, as notorious draft-dodging Republican drug addict Rush Limbaugh so disdainfully and condescendingly refers to the youth he has suckered, for declining the opportunity to be lied to and suckered any further by Republican shills. Kids these days.
