New York Times best-selling author, columnist, and speaker Ann Coulter was participating in a panel discussion titled “Censorship on Campus” at Politicon, an annual “non-partisan” convention that brings people of all stripes together to see their favorite pundits, politicians and more.
But before she could get in a word, two protestors dressed as Nazis started shouting her down in an effort to silence her.
It took some time for the disruptive individuals to be booted out of the room. It didn’t appear that the event’s organizers were prepared for this sort of thing to happen.
PJ Media was on the scene as it all unfolded.

It didn’t end there.
Two more protestors against Coulter, not dressed like the first pair, were also escorted out of the room shortly after the first two individuals.

Even CNN’s Jake Tapper, also in town for Politicon, weighed in on what happened.

Joining Coulter on the panel were Axios Vice President Evan Ryan, stand-up comic Gregg Proops, Townhall.com Political Editor Guy Benson and tech culture journalist Xeni Jardin.
Ann got in a joke at the costumed protestors’ expense, as tweeted by an individual also watching the chat.
