25. Lotta bullcrap and false equivalencies in this particular 'argument' ...

While I respect him, Maher isn't always 'right' in everything he says.

Universities do not HAVE to give a platform (and the associated imprimatur) to people like Coulter if they don't want to.

That isn't what 'Freedom of Speech' means.

If Oral Roberts University declined a request by Al Sharpton to give the commencement speech there ... are they denying him his 'rights'?

How about if MIT declined a request by the dude who built the Creation Museum to give THEIR commencement speech?

I fully support UC Berkeley's right to tell Coulter to kick sand if they want to, and even more so when the decision is based on the fact that violence is likely to erupt if her HATE-FILLED rhetoric is given a platform at their school.

It's time to call a spade a spade. She's advocated for the killing of Liberals, just to teach us a lesson. So fuck her. She can go talk on Faux and write books and the knuckle-draggers will eat it up and pay her millions. She ain't being 'silenced' FFS.

And UC Berkeley doesn't OWE HER a platform.
