Read the dang ticket

To be honest, I don’t like Ann Coulter. I think she is a loud mouth who writes poor books. But I am real tired of the way folks have been disrupting her speeches as of late. Nothing shows a lack of civility and respect for free speech than by completely disturbing someone who is speaking. If you don’t like her, protest outside, hand out flyers, don’t pay to go see her. Being a jerk and throwing pies and screaming her down is just childish.

Anyhow, here is a link to Arkansas Indy Media. The author was removed from the audience for having a camera, which they then assumed was a conspiracy against free speech. Someone responded to his post with this statement:

“If you had had an opportunity to read the information that came with the ticket in your hand, you'd have known that the "No cameras allowed," policy is the policy of the Walton Arts Center. Cameras are allowed at some other Ann Coulter appearances, depending on the policies of the venue.

I'm sorry that you missed her speech. It was great, and the protesters were quite entertaining. Better luck next time.”

And there you have it.
