Ann Coulter has crossed line:"Where are the skinheads when you need them?"
AGAIN!

(This is a report on Coulter's ludicrous writings in her "column" from Media Matters. I won't subject you to the actual column, but their are links to it at the Media Matters link below.)

Coulter: "{B}eat{ing}" Yale student with Taliban ties "even more senseless" would demonstrate that "{p}atriotic Americans" can "act like men"



Summary: In her column, Ann Coulter declared: "Patriotic Americans don't have to become dangerous psychotics like liberals, but they could at least act like men." Asking "Why hasn't the former spokesman for the Taliban matriculating at Yale been beaten even more senseless than he already is?" and alleging that Hollywood portrays America as "a cauldron of ethnic hatreds positively brimming with violent skinheads," Coulter continued: "Where are the skinheads when you need them?"

In her May 10 syndicated column, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter declared: "Patriotic Americans don't have to become dangerous psychotics like liberals, but they could at least act like men." As a first example of how they could do so, Coulter asked: "Why hasn't the former spokesman for the Taliban matriculating at Yale been beaten even more senseless than he already is?" Alleging that Hollywood portrays America as "a cauldron of ethnic hatreds positively brimming with violent skinheads," Coulter continued: "Where are the skinheads when you need them?"

Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi is a former "roving ambassador" for the Taliban regime in Afghanistan who began taking courses at Yale University in the summer of 2005. He has since requested admission to a degree-granting program. Hashemi's presence at Yale has drawn opposition from conservatives such as Coulter, Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund, and Fox News host Sean Hannity. But in a May 11 post on the Nail Yale weblog -- hosted on the conservative website Townhall.com and operated by Yale alumni whose goal is "to show Yale the error of its ways -- and to send Mr. Rahmatullah home" -- Clinton W. Taylor wrote of Coulter's column: "here's just no excuse for calling for a psychotic mob of skinheads to attack Hashemi. He is in the country lawfully, though due to a negligent application of the law, and ought to be safe here from violence."

Finally, Coulter lamented that "{t}he only violence on college campuses these days occurs when people like David Horowitz, Michelle Malkin and me show up to give a speech in defense of America." As Media Matters for America has documented, Coulter described an incident in which two men threw pies at her during an appearance at the University of Arizona as "an act of terrorism {that} was committed against me."

13. Word. The last thing we should do is give her any ammunition
and the way to do that is to make her even more irrelevant than she already is.

8. What is Coulter implying?
Is she revealing herself as a neo-nazi? Is she in connection with Tom Metzger or something? Man, she is something else!

9. How is this any more "crossing a line"...
...than when she advocated bombing the NYTimes offices, calling for liberals to be attacked with baseball bats, saying that we should invade Muslim countries and force the populace to convert to Christianity, claimed that every liberal or Democrat since WWII has been engaged in treason, etc., etc.?

:shrug:

12. That's why I included the word "Again." The headline box wouldn't hold...
...all that I really wanted to say. If I fully expressed what I think of her here, it would probably get me banned from DU.
