Flyering wrap-up

I thought that since flyering was such a big part of our lives over the past few weeks, it deserved a post of its own.

We clearly won the flyering war. No matter how many of our flyers the leftists ripped down, we put up more to replace them. This took a lot of work, but it was worth it.

I wonder what the liberals would do if somebody ripped down their flyers. Could they find the dedication to repost everything a dozen times?

I love how the Herald called our flyers childish. It wasn't all the mustache-drawing and horn-drawing that was childish, it was our advertising our event.

Liberals are obsessed with Nazis. They kept drawing swasticas and writing "seig heil" on our flyers. What's funny about this is that last semester, some actual Nazis from National Vanguard posted flyers around campus. They didn't get torn down. The flyers were attacking Israel, so the left probably agreed with them. The liberals are closer to Nazis than they are to us!

Eventually, other people started doing take-offs of our flyers. One flyer promoting another event said "not as conservative as Ann Coulter, but just as crazy." Another flyer said "Ann Coulter is a deadhead," along with a picture from her website. We aren't sure whether this was supporting or attacking her.

I know I can't be objective here, but I still love the "Ann Coulter is coming to WMU...Are you offended yet?" It just perfectly captured the reaction of the liberals.

It's touching how liberals recycled our flyers. But they forgot that in the slogan "reduce, reuse, recycle," reuse comes before recycle. I rescued at least a dozen flyers from recycling bins and put them to good reuse.

My favorite flyer defacement: In Sangren Hall, somebody disliked our "Liberals are wrong about everything" flyer. He wrote "including civil rights, affirmative action..." So liberals are both for and against racial discrimination. Priceless.

If you have any interesting flyering-related anecdotes, please post them in the comments.

Before the speech I was talking to one of my old high school teachers who came to see Ann Coulter and I was telling him about how our signs were ripped down, and how excited we were about Ann Coulter. This obviously liberal girl interupted the conversation to say that Ann Coulter signs were put over pro-choice signs and how awful that was. I was annoyed that she would say that, and also that she would interupt a private conversation.

Let's not forget the sadistic scratching out of the picture on one of the fliers. It looked like someone got a fork and started scratching. And they call us irrational and hateful.
