One of the country’s most conservative commentators is coming to the country’s eighth most conservative campus this month.
The Auburn Conservatives for Tomorrow, “Auburn’s premiere conservative student group,” is hosting “An Evening with Ann Coulter” at the Hotel at Auburn University on March 22 at the Hotel at Auburn University. The costs for non-students is $20. Students get in for free.
“Those who attend will learn the value of free enterprise, individual freedom, and a strong national defense to America’s success as a nation,” the group said in a news release.
Coulter “will be speaking on the Constitution (2nd amendment), Current Events, and a topic of her choosing.”

With the two comments so far, you’d think no one around here had ever seen someone that disagreed with their beliefs before.
“Grrrr!!! I dislike them so much I think I’ll give a one word response to show the full range of my disgust!!!”
The ultra conservatives don’t get it that people like Ann Coulter are the reason they cannot win a national election for president.
my god. this town does not need more ignorance than it already posses in ample amounts.
It’s not about disagreeing with one’s opinion in her case. She exists as a “media figure” for no other reason than to spew hateful and obnoxious remarks. She is free to say whatever she would like, but the fact that there are some who would offer a platform for her to do so at my alma mater is disheartening.
Can’t wait. Buying ten tickets to hear the truth!
I vote Republican and cannot stand this woman. While I would prefer that AU not provide a platform for her to spew her venom, since everybody she will be speaking to will likely agree with her already anyway, this is a non-event.
She’s one of the most intelligent women on the political scene today. She speaks the politically incorrect truth and it’s called “Hate-speech” by idiots that disagree with her. Can’t wait to hear her!!
Ann Coulter is not a conservative. Ann Coulter is a reactionary and a polemicist. Actual conservatives are embarrassed by her shtick.
Ann Coulter is an embarrassment and I don’t want her associated with Auburn whatsoever.
She’s intelligent only because she’s figured out how to make a boat-load of money.
She was invited to speak at Fordham University about 4 or 5 months ago by their College Republic group and the University put out a statement that they didn’t agree with it. Later the group rescinded their invitation to her. And when she spoke at Tulane University in 2008, a student said that it “turned into a nasty brawl boo-fest, precipitated by some anti-semitic comments by Ms. Coulter.” If the ACT wanted to stir up some controversy, that’s all they’ll be doing by inviting her.
“Actual conservatives” have recently had issues with Coulter, not because she’s a “reactionary” but because her stumping for Mitt Romney went so far as to defend MassCare.
Indeed she is often deliberately provocative, but there’s room for that in the political arena — and there are plenty on the other side whose boorish behavior is celebrated.
It was my understanding that college was about one’s beliefs being challenged, the give-and-take of discussion and the free flow of ideas.
DBAU81 sneers, “While I would prefer that AU not provide a platform for her to spew her venom, since everybody she will be speaking to will likely agree with her already anyway, this is a non-event.”
He’s probably right that those who disagree with Coulter wouldn’t dare attend to give her views an actual hearing, but it’s not her fault that so many leftists are so close-minded: they’re not going to attend, and they’re going to gripe about the fact that there are events where alternative opinions are being given.

Wait…who? Sorry but I am a recent graduate of AU and headed a conservative leaning organization on campus, I have never heard of these people
She has a right to her opinions, however vile, revolting, and unsupported they are. I have the right to think her vile for supporting those positions as well.

Why give her the time of day when her hate-mongering can be read for free online. You don’t need to smell a donkey’s ass to know that it stinks.
I don’t agree with her all time, but I would go see her if I lived in Auburn.
