Countering Ann Coulter at Xavier University

Some of the progressive students at Xavier University in Ohio aren’t too happy that the nasty, bigoted homophobe Ann Coulter is appearing on their campus. But, they’ve turned their anger into action at their blog, Counter Ann Coulter. They’re raising money — in $5.00 increments — to bring progressive speakers to campus:

She has every right to speak her mind (and she’s paid well to do it, her $20,000+ speaking fee equals about $5 for every Xavier student). But we speak our minds, too; for values like compassion, equality, and diversity. The same values Xavier students work to uphold with groups like Xavier’s Gay-Straight Alliance, Amnesty International, Habitat for Humanity, and Earthcare.

Here’s where you come in: While Coulter pollutes the air with her divisive message on one side of Xavier’s campus on September 6, on the other side we’ll be presenting a check to Xavier student organizations working to make their campus – and Ohio – a place where everyone feels at home.

Can you spare just $5 – an Abe Lincoln – to support the same communities Coulter regularly bashes for pay?

We’ll also send her a ‘thank you’ card signed with your name, and let her know how much money we raised.

Very cool. Thank you to the students at Xavier.
