Ann Coulter calls John Edwards a "Faggot"
At the Conservative Political Action Conference today, which was attended by 2008 Republican Presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, Tom Tancredo (R-CO), Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS), former Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) as well as Vice President Dick Cheney, Ann Coulter referred to Senator John Edwards as a "faggot".

Ann_coulter_2After being introduced by Romney, who said "I am happy to hear that after you hear from me, you will hear from Ann Coulter. That is a good thing. Oh yeah!", Coulter took the stage and said:

"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word faggot, so I so kind of an impasse, cant really talk about Edwards." (video http://thinkprogress.org/2007/03/02/coulter-edwards /)

Please don't insult crotches that way. I have one, and it's deeply offended. I'd recommend prayer, but I don't think the Vatican has created prayers that strong yet.

There are human beings who are transexuals. Ann Coulter is not a transexual. Her being a human being is highly questionable. By calling her a transexual you reveal a bias against transexuals.

46. Ann should be...
...converted to Christianity as should all of the "Christian" right. Then they would loose all of the hateful vulgarity, recognize the Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and everyone else as brothers and sisters, not be gay bashers and otherwise develop "liberal" qualities.

The right wingers are getting very desperate and when cornered are very dangerous.

37. One can dream, though.
Along with Coulter's viciousness, James Inhofe's environmental "lessons," :eyes: and Rudy Giuliani's invocation of Ronald Reagan almost to the point of political necrophilia, CPAC-goers and those unfortunate enough to have to cover them were treated :sarcasm: to Duncan Hunter's umpteenth assertion that the Reagan administration's blood-soaked policy in El Salvador had caused democracy to break out. I hope someone gave Dana Milbank an airsickness bag to go with the aspirin he mentioned on Countdown tonight.

40. Here's something to start with:
Note that many districts set up a bunch of hoops for you to jump through before you can get your e-mail through. Perhaps calling would be best, and don't forget letters to the editor to make the public aware.

Duncan Hunter:

http://www.house.gov/hunter/contact.shtml

Sam Brownback:

http://brownback.senate.gov/english/contactme/index.htm

James Inhofe, who is, thank God, not running for president, though he is still haunting the Senate:

http://inhofe.senate.gov/public /

I'd have to hunt around online more for anybody else.

Here's what I found for Mitt Romney. If you click on the home page, you will see that his CPAC remarks are already up. So if he hasn't denounced Coulter yet, gently urge him to do so. On edit, gentle readers, you know what I mean.

25. So, the GOP candidates are gutless?
Not a one of them had the balls to stand up to her? If Coulter wanted to take on Edwards on his record, fine. But to just call the man an ugly name...I don't get it. Why is this woman on a stage? Why are people clapping? What kind of people are these? Are these "family values" to applaud a woman who just spouts ugliness and hate?
Any person there who just sat, or worse, applauded, needs to really examine what they stand for in life.
Is Ann Coulter the face of the GOP?
She's not informed or witty. She's just crass.
If the GOP doesn't cull her from their herd, she'll drag them to even deeper depths.
Hey, Laura Bush, care to comment?
Do none of the Bushies have an ounce of dignity?

29. Uh they are fascist bullies
The lot of them, nothing more, nothing less. Why do you think they referred to Jews as filthy rats in Nazi Germany. Because that's what they really believed, they were full of hate, and showed their hatred and then it made it OKAY for their followers to hate Jews. So yes, they hate Gays, hate liberals, and yes, ultimately they would kill you if they could get away with it. Yes, I really believe that. Look at Katrina. Look at how they treat the soldiers. Look at a thousand things. They have no morals and if no one stops them-just like all bullies they just get stronger. I swear to GOD, torches and pitchforks is what they deserve. If only anyone in this country knew the littlest of history and where this can lead.

27. Your fifteen minutes are up, ma'am.
Well over 20 years ago, I read a letter to the editor of Rolling Stone magazine comparing Madonna to "a six-year-old who pulls up her dress for attention." To which I mentally added, "And she's only half as talented." Ann Coulter is politics' answer to Madonna: she's run out of ways to grab headlines.

33. This Is Not The First Time She Has Used Such Words
She called Al Gore a Fag on Hardball....

I sat and watched it....... all the while pushing her can of Diet Coke into the camera for freebies later.

She was not stopped then, as people only pretend to be outraged.....

Here is the story......

http://mediamatters.org/items/200607280001

... and I am going to be eaten alive for saying so, but does anyone really think "these kind" (and there are plenty of "these kind" in the Democratic Party as well)... or their ilk would ever vote for a Woman, or a African American for President?

If you do... I need to speak to your pharmacist, and get hooked up.....

... and lastly, when this sad canker has been slinging around Fag, & Faggot for such a very long time... what's the sudden panic that everyone is stressed about?

She is a sore..... that will never heal.....

38. Why isn't anyone in the MSM
demanding comment from every major Republic presidential candidate that attended this hate fest?

Why isn't the MSM demanding that Tony Snow, THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY who attended CPAC denounce, or embrace her comment?

Why isn't the MSM demanding comment from Sean "you lefties are so full of hate" Hannity WHO ATTENDED THIS MEETING?

I made this point in a different thread earlier, but EVERY MAJOR GOP CANDIDATE WAS AT THIS HATE FEST with the exception of John McCain (good call on his part).

If this were a Dem, you'd never hear the end of it. Faux News would set up a satellite truck outside every Dem candidates home 24/7. Hell, they might even bring out "Jesus on a Trailer-hitch".

Howard Dean yells with excitement, and it's broadcast ad nauseum. Coulter calls a decent and honorable man a "faggot" in front of the VP, WH Press Secretary, prominent hate radio host and every major candidate for the White House on the GOP side, and all we get from the MSM is crickets.

Oh yeah, right, I forgot...it's that Liberal Media.

It's either that, or she's truly evil. Ok. So, she's evil AND wants media attention. What a hack. She's done.

On edit:

Actually, I hope she's not done. She's probably the greatest thing to happen to the Democratic Party since George Bush.

I loved watching her on CSPAN today, she caused allot of unrest among the neocons who were attending, while demonstrating the growing split in the Republican Party.

49. I do consider this news...
When rethugs can't find respectable guests to speak at their affairs, and must resort to inviting trash-mouthed, foul-minded guests like Coulter; it's a sign that their party is crumbling.

92. That's the real story. The woman is horrid. Why
are people clapping and why hasn't each and every GOP candidate publicly denounced her? You're right. THAT's the story. Where do these "ethical, moral" people draw the line? Coulter has called for the murder of Americans numerous times. And she's invited to speak. She's made cruel comments. And she's invited to speak. And now, on camera, her political discourse is nothing more than calling a distinguished American a "faggot". And the GOP elite applaud.
Hey, Mitt, Rudy...care to show what tough guys you are and really take a stand here? Not some wimpy, "oh, Ann's just being Ann" garbage. Show some leadership. Say this will not be tolerated in your party.
Coulter is Borat. She's held the mirror up to the GOP. Guess what? The reflection is beyond ugly.

47. For a person who thinks she is so smart she sure spends a lot of
time gutter-sniping at her opponents. One would think a person capable of making reasoned arguments to support her positions would do just that instead of continually engaging in personal attacks in an attempt to make a point.

But, in reality, she says outrageous things like this just to get everyone's attention - its her shtick. If it wasn't for her outrageous comments no one would pay her a bit of attention. On the one hand I'd love to see her raked over the coals for this but on the other hand, in a way, I'm glad the media hasn't picked up on this because its denying her that large soapbox she's looking for. She knew her comment about Edwards would rile people up; she probably hoped to parlay that comment into free publicity with tv appearances that will help sell books and keep her in the public eye.

85. She has nothing whatsoever of any value
to offer...vituperative spleen is the only thing she has to sell. Sadly, many troglodytes lap up the slime from the likes of her, Hannity and Limbaugh. Reasoned arguments are foreign to both these "pundits" and their principal demographic. They're like a broken record anymore, stuck on the same old riff every time the record goes around.

51. If a Democrat had said something this incendiary
Edited on Fri Mar-02-07 10:57 PM by OHdem10
about a Republican, the well-organized Republicans
would have hit every newspaper, every TV Channel
demanding whatever they think would be the appropriate
punishment for that Democrat.

This is why the Democratic Party has lost ground.
We just whine and call them names on a Website.

This suggestion by Coulter crosses the line.

Right now the Republicans are onto Obama full
force--His Religion--(black separatism ) . Another front, First was he black enough now his "white" side may have owned slaves.

Hilary--when all else fails. Attack her
college writing -Implying very deep socialist
bordering on Communism.

The Republicans do not wait for campaigns to
fight back. Republicans stand up for Republicans.

Coulter crossed the line.

Posted by larissa on Sat Mar-03-07 01:15 AM


Washington Post -
By Dana Milbank
Saturday, March 3, 2007; Page A02

...In the session preceding Romney, Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Tex.) said of Cindy Sheehan, whose son died in Iraq: "She's an idiot."



...In the session after Romney, Ann Coulter used an anti-gay slur to describe John Edwards (the line drew applause) and asked: "Did Al Gore actually swallow Michael Moore?"


...When a questioner asked Coulter why she praises marriage but broke off so many engagements, she responded by calling the questioner ugly.



...Inhofe repeated his view that man-made global warming is "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," and he quarreled with a Bush administration proposal to list polar bears as a threatened species. "They're overpopulated," he declared. "Don't worry about it: The polar bear is fine."


My God -- Republicans are PATHETIC.

This review of their little gathering today is incredible- http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

John Edwards addresses Coulter's Hate


Posted by blogslut on Sat Mar-03-07 05:45 AM

From his website: https://johnedwards.com/action/contribute/coulter

Shame on you Ann Coulter

Friday afternoon, Republican mouthpiece Ann Coulter brought hate-speech politics to a new low.

This video shows Coulter addressing the American Conservative Union's Political Action Conference, March, 2, 2007 in Washington, D.C.

We must show that inflaming prejudice to attack progressive leaders will only backfire...

Pathetic.

I did notice in another related thread from the Fox News web site some
coverage of Dr. Dean's protest of Coulter's speech, but, I honestly think
that was because it gave them the opportunity to repeat the vileness.

79. Here's The Washington Post, page 3, March 3rd.
Milbank covers the Coulter hate speech, as well as Inhofe's ambiguous reference to labels he wears with pride.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

In the session preceding Romney, Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Tex.) said of Cindy Sheehan, whose son died in Iraq: "She's an idiot." In the session after Romney, Ann Coulter used an anti-gay slur to describe John Edwards (the line drew applause) and asked: "Did Al Gore actually swallow Michael Moore?" When a questioner asked Coulter why she praises marriage but broke off so many engagements, she responded by calling the questioner ugly.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) got the crowd cheering early in the day. "I have been called -- my kids are all aware of this -- dumb, crazy man, science abuser, Holocaust denier, villain of the month, hate-filled, warmonger, Neanderthal, Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun," he announced. "And I can just tell you that I wear some of those titles proudly."


Curiously, Milbank then chooses to close with Coulter's seal of approval on one of the candidates, giving her a kind of legitimacy.

But Romney had, at least, won over Coulter. "I think he's probably our best candidate," she said. She'd prefer Duncan Hunter, she said, but "I'm being realistic." And, besides, "I love Mormons," Coulter said. "In 1992, Bill Clinton came in third in Utah."

108. Just Ann Coulter Being Ann Coulter
fucking beltway fop. I remember when Whoopie said something along the lines of "my bush would make a better president than George Bush" during the 2004 campaign and Dana Milbank faithfully noted how John Kerry didn't disavow that comment. And that was only during the media firestorm fueled by the reich-wing echo chamber that eventually got Goldberg fired as a spokeswoman for Slimfast. Will such misfortune befall the Coultergeist? I doubt it.

both a hate-filled sleazebags obsessed with one thing. It would be especially ironic with their hatred of homosexuals. I would even chip in for their very own island in the Pacific somewhere, and then erase it off any map.

Seriously though, we need to shut up about coulter and phelps. They are nothing, and the only thing they have is publicity. Without publicity, which the media and bloggers afford them, they'll lose their fortunes (at least in coulter's case) and rot away into oblivion, where they belong.

101. Her use of such a vile word made me sick to my stomach
Edited on Sat Mar-03-07 02:59 PM by Politicub
I can not believe it's 2007 and people will stand and even defend someone using such a derogative word. I've been called a fag or a faggot multiple times in my life. And in all instances, it was always in an attempt to incite fear or to intimidate. And it does hurt to see it, especially after going through life without hearing it that much any more.

But the hate that boils inside of Ann Coulter and others like her was always there. She just held back from voicing anything about it. At least there should be no confusion about Coulter's views.

Coulter is nothing but a bully - and I hope the people don't stand for allowing such hateful, divisive language to enter the mainstream lexicon.

111. Bush seems so
'moderate' when put up against Coulter. I don't doubt that this is the motive to her madness. I've always thought that by being so hatefully outrageous she makes those at BushCo seem sane in comparison.

Thing is one is judged by the company they keep and the GOP keeps Ann around, gives her speaking engagements and considers her some kind of wacko folk hero (for saying what they all are thinking anyway.) Ann gives them a lot of cover.

I hope the GOP trots her out a lot. They will continue to lose elections with that harpie as their spokesmodel.

112. I don't believe she's a conservative at all
Ann Coulter believes only in making money for Ann Coulter. I don't think she gives a crap what shit she spews in order to do so. I honestly believe that if we were stupid enough to support her, and she could make more money doing it, she'd be painting herself as a lib and trashing conservatives. Fortunately we have a common decency many on the right lack.

Thats the reason it no longer winds me up, I see right through her crap. No point getting annoyed about her saying faggot, if she thought it would sell books I'm sure she'd happily call Obama a n****r. She wants us outraged, she needs the press to sell books, because she has no opinions of her own. Just ignore it.
