Free Ajai Raj

Ann Coulter, the TV “pundit” who, shortly after 9/11, infamously suggested that the United States ought to “invade [Muslims’] countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to christianity,” and who most recently referred to veteran journalist and dean of the White House press corps Helen Thomas as “the old Arab”, found time from her busy schedule to make a stop in Austin, Texas. The meeting was periodically interrupted by cheers and heckling, until the subject of gay marriage came up.

Coulter said she supported the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman on the basis that a good woman civilizes and inspires a man to strive for something better, leading to a question that was met with a stunned silence.

“You say that you believe in the sanctity of marriage,” said Ajai Raj, an English sophomore. “How do you feel about marriages where the man does nothing but fuck his wife up the ass?”

UT Police officers approached Raj to arrest him, resulting in a mass exodus of protesters chanting, “Let him go.”

“The person had been disruptive the entire event,” said Matt Hardigree, former Student Events Center president. “He took the opportunity to say something lewd and offensive and then made masturbatory gestures as he exited.”

The kid was charged with disorderly conduct, when really, all he was doing was asking a perfectly logical question, given Coulter’s stance. Repeat after me: Free Ajai Raj.
