Coulter caught cribbing from conservative magazines

A column penned by the doyenne of right-wing rhetoric Ann Coulter has come under fire for alleged plagiarism, RAW STORY has learned.

Much of Coulter's Jun. 29, 2005 column, Thou Shall Not Commit Religion, bears a striking resemblance to pieces in magazines dating as far back as 1985and a column written for the Boston Globe in 1995.

1. Ah...
she's not only a lying, vicious, anorexic hag-in-training, but a plagarist too.

Why am I not surprised?

2. How fitting that The Rude Pundit should
have a hand in busting coulter..

"The piece was first questioned by The Rude Pundit on Jul. 1. His post noted that Coulter appeared to have cribbed from a defunct 1993 magazine called The Flummery Digest."

10. What else should we expect?
After all, it's not like these pimps can think for themselves -- all they know how to do is parrot talking points. Given that, they just don't understand about plagiarism: they think that's what they're supposed to do. But even if they did understand, they would still lack the integrity to avoid plagiarism.

25. I think so too
I think this year and next year we will be seeing a lot of justice from these people. Call it karma or the wrath of God or whatever suits your fancy. Me? I like to call it the wrath of God. ;) Oh how I wish my grandfather wasn't dying. He doesn't like Bush at all and I would love for him to stick around and see his downfall. *sigh*

17. Coulter & Limbaugh are not jounalists. Being caught in LIES, DAILY is SOP
This is only news because someone in the MSM is pointing it out.
Howard Stern does more investigative journalism than those two, and that ain't sayin much.

21. And she is such a fine
journalist - I just can't believe it. What is rightwing yellow journalism coming to?

But trust her loyal readers to come to her aid and defend her in her time of trial with the liberal media's feeding frenzy.

If this were a novel, I would put it down.

49. yup that was very telling
This was all in the aftermath of our then PM's decision to keep Canadian troops out of Iraq.
She insisted again and again with the reporter interviewing her that Canada sent troops into Vietnam to back up American Forces.
Coulter couldn't care less abouts facts or truth. She's a sadistic RW clown and a propagandist.
I'll always remember her diatribe on Fox about how us folks up here should be grateful that the you all down there allow us to exist on this continent.
It's gonna be rather sweet to see her choke on her own regurgitations.

Look out for her next article about how liberals travelled back in time to set her up for plagiarism.

32. Wait just a minute.
Ann Coulter is a very, very important person. That`s why cable news channels invite her on to identify all the liberals who love terrorists. She is a moral-valued freedom fighter. We should speak kindly of folks like her because God is on their side and He doesn`t like anyone who disagrees with them.

48. And lots of people think that she
is actually a he. Whatever she/he/it is, is two steps below snake shit. What's gonna be her excuse for this when she does her usual appearance on Hannity's show-the liberals stole her original story and replaced it with a plagiarized piece? And where is the poster that has that priceless "Annie Dance" sig pic? It is definitely needed here!

37. Some other Coulter masterpieces ...
"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war."

"When contemplating college liberals, you really regret once again that John Walker is not getting the death penalty. We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed, too. Otherwise, they will turn out to be outright traitors."

COULTER: I take the biblical idea. God gave us the earth
PETER FENN (Democratic strategist): Oh, OK.
COULTER: We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees.
FENN: This is a great idea.
COULTER: God says, "Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours."
FENN: Terrific. We're Americans, so we should consume as much of the earth's resources...
COULTER: Yes! Yes.
FENN: ... as fast as we possibly can.
COULTER: As opposed to living like the Indians.

(Drawn from various web sources, since there's no better way to prove her insanity than through her own words. :evilgrin:)

One day I read a topic headline that Coulter doesn't like Bush's pick, and within 24 hours her writings are being questioned for plagiarism???

Anyone else note the irony?

40. I Did
Yesterday on the Randi Rhodes Message Board (I'm a moderator there), I made a crack that we can't be sure they're her thoughts because those might be plagiarized too.

44. Well, Well, Well
I knew she was unhinged but I never thought she would have to
"borrow" her vitriol.  I went to the 'article' in
question and scrolled down through some of the comments, WOW
there are many more wackos just like her.  One of them even
posted some pictures of her (that I would imagine he
masturbates to) and they looked like some of the crack whores
that I saw when I lived in Northern Virginia.

I wouldn't give her that much credit. Par for the course.
