Ann Coulter to speak on campus

Conservative political commentator Ann Coulter is scheduled to speak at the Marvin Center Grand Ballroom Saturday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m.

Her visit is being funded and coordinated by GW’s chapter of the Young America’s Foundation, with the help of outside donors and sponsors.

“We feel that GW is deprived from the conservative movement,” said GW YAF’s President, Sergio Gor. “We feel that our students are lacking the substance of a pure education. We are exposed to bias and all these opinions that are very one-sided, and it really has to be our group that brings in the conservative cause and conservative movement to campus.”

Coulter spoke at GW two years ago. Students attending the speech this year will be restricted from bringing bags, jackets and signs into the auditorium.

Gor said there will be an open microphone for questions and discussion at the event.

“We encourage all our liberal friends to come out and learn,” Gor said. “It’s a huge thing for GW to be having Ann Coulter. She’s one of the biggest stars on the speaker circuit. For us to be having her is a good thing for us.”
