O'Reilly Calls Coulter Protesters At U.Conn Nazis

Reported by Deborah - December 9, 2005

Ellis Hennican joined O'Reilly 12/8/05, to discuss what O'Reilly promo'd as an "attack" on Ann Coulter during her speaking appearance at the University of Conneticut. At he start of the segment, he changed the promo description to "verbal attack" and told Hennican that the protesters were far left zealots and "nazis".

When Coulter appeared on The Factor 12/1/05, O'Reilly made a big deal about Coulter's safety warning her that the people against her on the left were "bad people" Hannity also made that point on his radio show Wednesday, 12/7, telling viewers that violence was expected and H&C would have a camera there to record it.

After Coulter's speech, Hannity & Colmes tried to get Coulter to talk about the student response to her appearance but she was vague which Ellen reported in her post.

Last night O'Reilly showed a clip of Coulter's audience chanting what sounded like "Coulter Sucks" and Coulter looked somewhat shaken which is odd for her. O'Reilly was very protective of Coulter acting like she was the poor innocent victim who was unfairly and brutally attacked by the evil "nazis" at U.Conn who were all probably students at the school. Hennican assured O'Reilly that he didn't need to worry about "poor Annie" who could take care of herself.

comment: It seems like O'Reilly and Hannity were hoping for violence to erupt by the way they were hyping it beforehand. What I find most interesting is Coulter's hesitation to describe the incident when she appeared on H&C. Coulter has often talked about her own student experiences at Cornell and beneath her nasty criticism of the left leaning student body there, her feelings of rejection were quite obvious. Maybe the U Conn experience pushed a button. Of course, one would need to assume that Coulter has buttons.
