Coulter & Horowitz On Pie Throwers


From Newsmax:

“For Ann Coulter, the failure of Pima County authorities to charge her attackers undoubtedly led to the other attacks on conservatives.

“I’m not a victim,” she told NewsMax.com in an e-mail. “Neither of the pies hit me and one guy ended up with a broken shoulder and the other with a broken nose. Thank God for vigilante justice because that’s the only justice there is in Arizona. All the attacks of the last week came soon after the Pima country prosecutor dropped all charges against my … assailants, even though the whole attack was on videotape, all over TV, and I offered to fly out for the trial if necessary. I got a notice at the end of March that charges were dropped on March 18 or 19 (Friday). Right-wingers should refuse to speak in Arizona on the grounds that law enforcement refuses to prosecute cowardly thugs who stage sneak attacks on right-wingers.”

David Horowitz, president of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture, had just started a lecture at Butler when he was hit. “There’s a wave of violence on college campuses, committed by what I’d call fascists opposing conservatives,” he told NewsMax.com. “It’s one step from that to injury.”

He had a point. As the Washington Times recalled in an editorial last Monday, Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn was on the verge of a general-election victory in 2002. “About a month before the election, protesters had thrown two cream pies laced with urine in Mr. Fortuyn’s face,” the Times reported. “The Dutch media dismissed this as non-violent protest. Mr. Fortuyn, however, began expressing fears for his safety. Just a week before the election he was shot to death.”
