You're only helping Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter was supposed to speak at The University of California, Berkeley but there was threats of protest. There seems to be this idea at collage campuses that there needs to be a safe place from outside ideas that go against your own.

So what has making Coulter call off her speech done? It's made her relevant! All she ever does is spew nasty nonsense and that's why the right loves her! They don't agree with anything she has to say but she gets herself in the news by saying these things and making you angry.

You don't have to agree with anything she's saying but The Constitution protects everyone's right to speak freely. She has a right to offend. You don't have a right to not be offended.

So am I saying you shouldn't be offended by what she says? No I'm not. You shouldn't like anything she's trying to say if you're Conservative or Liberal.

What's her ultimate goal? To get attention. And now you given it to her.

You just have to ask yourself who is Ann Coulter? If you ask me she's some lady who has written some really stupid books. That's all she is. She didn't have any power over you. She wasn't that relevant. So let her speak!

Why do we protest Donald Trump? Because he's The President! Why do we go to town hall meetings to give congressmen a piece of our minds? Because they have power in government and we put them in the position to represent us.

If your co-worker says something dumb at work do you protest them? No you don't. Why? Because they don't have power over you.

The First Amendment protects everyone's right to free speech. If you're going to protest someone you should be smart about it. There's more to do on a Thursday than protest Ann Coulter like studying for your finals or going out to watch a movie.
