They fire Imus, we hire Coulter - A Call To Action

Mon Apr 16, 2007 at 07:36:36 AM PDT

In the wake of the Don Imus disaster, one would think that Corporate America would be highly sensitive to the promotion of hate speech, if not for morality's sake, for their profit's sake. For our sake, it's time to fight back and simply say 'No' to Ann Coulter and her hate-mongering.

Unfortunately that's not true in one community in Michigan, already branded with a decades-old racist reputation and where, even today, its children are publicly being called racists just for living there.

There's still a chance to stop Coulter's Tour of Hate and Intolerance from coming to Michigan and making a hefty $30,000 while she's at it. But we need your help! (Action Alert Below)

Speak Up, Speak Out, Stop the Hate from Invading

The only way to stop Ann Coulter's tour of Intolerance and Hate from festering in Michigan is to contact the Livingston Economic Club and it's members. Remember, they need to hear from us by Thursday in order to stop this!

Please call or email each of the sponsors below, and then send an email to 10 of your friends and family members asking them to do the same. Stopping the hate and spreading a message of tolerance and acceptance begins with us.

So you are not for freedom of spesch? Funny, how freedom of speech is the first ammendment and there are no constitutional ammendments for having the right to not be offended.

Censoring speech, any speech, is wrong. I am curious, which side of the free speach debate you landed on when the Dixie Chicks made their remark about the president and Country radio listeners pressured stations into dropping the group from their air waves?

If no one wants to hear what Ann Coulter says, they won't buy her book.

This is not a censorship issue. Ann may speak wherever she finds a willing sponsor. I don't believe the local Chambers of Commerce representing the citizens of Livingston County should provide a public venue for a racist who promotes violence against anyone with different ideas.
