Mmmm... pie

Conservative author Ann Coulter was assaulted by pie-throwers during a speech on Thursday at an Arizonia college.

Thanks the the internet, you can watch the video as well as see pics of the assailants and read the police report, in which the pie throwers refer to themselves as "Al Pieda". They also claim that they "were throwing the pies at her ideas, not her".

Now, Ann Coulter can be a little out there - she says some good stuff, but she also says some nutty stuff. And I'm sure most liberals are against pie throwing (although maybe we need to pass some pie control laws to keep pies out of the hands of criminals). But it's interesting that liberals are often willing to go out of their way to defend free speech on their side, while trying to silence the speech of unpopular ideas on the other side.
