Call one of these hate merchants a s**t, get suspended, yet they can say this type of garbage without any consequence.

1. It's not too late to edit your title - that was never funny or inoffensive...

3. For Ann, perhaps some justification for Ruby Ridge would do?

5. Thank you! It's difficult to imagine an atrocity Coulter couldn't justify; this line
sums it up in a sick way: "Ann Coulter could run Syria in her sleep." Really a horrid person...

6. No, in the right wing world Ruby Ridge was horrible,
41 bullets into an unarmed black male is good. Beating up on anti-war protesters is good. Beating up on working class unions is good.

43. If the Kent State shootings were justified, wonder what justice would be fitting for Madame
Coulter? :patriot:

7. Anne Hart Coulter was born in 1961. So she was nine years old when Kent State happened.
I wonder if she is familiar with the literature on the early involvement of the USA in Viet Nam? I doubt it. I doubt that she could give the date of Diem's assassination or how that correlated to JFK's assassination (one month apart). Or who might have knocked off Diem.

She is a stupid, stupid woman who never deals in facts. She has self-destructed before .. let it happen again.

10. yeah, she's a circus sideshow. I thought the MSM had gotten away from even showing her, but
seeing her tonight in this interview shows she's still wanting attention for being nasty. Hey, if that's what you want Ann, you be proud of that! Enjoy your riches for being so hateful to other human beings. Strange... A 50 year old acting like a college booze-hound with a super filthy mouth is sooo attractive. ha!

14. Sticking entire leg in mouth, Coulter INSISTED Canada sent troops to VN:
This is a blast from the past, and it's a DOOZY!

Ann Coulter Sticks Her Entire Leg in Her Mouth
by Doug Ireland

Ann Coulter is a loudmouth ignoramus who spouts her outrageous nationalist inaccuracies on American television with little challenge from the empty talking heads who interview her. But she finally found someone to stand up to her, in Canada--and she was exposed for the arrogant fool she is. Interviewed by the Canadian Broadcasting Company's Bob McKeown for the investigative TV broadcast "The Fifth Estate," which devoted an hour-long January 26 special to how U.S. media have been highjacked by conservative bullies, Coulter was berating Canada for not sending troops to Iraq when she displayed her empty-headedness in the following exchange:

Coulter: "Canada used to be one of our most loyal friends and vice-versa. I mean Canada sent troops to Vietnam - was Vietnam less containable and more of a threat than Saddam Hussein?"

McKeown interrupts: "Canada didn't send troops to Vietnam."

...

Coulter: "I don't think that's right."

McKeown: "Canada did not send troops to Vietnam."

Coulter (looking desperate): "Indochina?"

McKeown: "Uh no. Canada ...second World War of course. Korea. Yes. Vietnam No."

Coulter: "I think you're wrong."

McKeown: "No, took a pass on Vietnam."

Coulter: "I think you're wrong."

McKeown: "No, Australia was there, not Canada."

Coulter: "I think Canada sent troops."

McKeown: "No."

Coulter: "Well. I'll get back to you on that."

McKeown tags out in script:

"Coulter never got back to us -- but for the record, like Iraq, Canada sent no troops to Vietnam."

16. She believes the Canadians were our allies in that damn war
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmcZG87Fmxc

Coulter, riddle me this, "If Canada was really our ally during the Vietnam war, why did they grant US draft evaders asylum?"

38. Her knowledge of the real history of the Vienam conflict is lacking...
...she actually went on a Canadian TV program and said that Canada had fought with the US in that conflict. When the host corrected her, she argued with him, then finally said she'd "have to go and look it up".

She's an ignorant twit who tries to come off as knowledgeable.

Like all Republicans, she twists the facts to fit her world view.

21. Ann Coulter says shooting is "what you do with a mob"
Which of course means in Ann's twisted worldview it would have been perfectly fine to machinegun the Brooks Brothers Mob who stopped the Florida recount in 2000.

If Ann Coulter would have gone to Vietnam someone would have slid a grenade under her tent flap.

Title: "Demonic, How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America."

I haven't seen its cover, but now I can't help wondering if the cover art involves crosshairs...

It has the title in red and her name in white against a black background.

She is also classing white-trash racists, ALL OF WHOM BELONG TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, DEAR, as liberals.

Ann, smoking crack is not a good hobby for you.

Without our attention, she'd just be a crazy lady who sits on a park bench and shouts at buses.

29. The last 30 years of Republican coup didn't happen in a vacuum
It happened because we ignored the rantings of talking heads and refused to take them as a threat to Democracy. But we can certainly disagree. I think the adage that you keep your friends close and your enemies closer is a sound one. They may sound like lunatics to us, but they sound like the messiah to those who would destroy us.

That was an enormous abuse of governmental powers. Worse than Waco because the students weren't armed.

33. Meh. she has painted her self into a hate corner...
she has to out do herself at every turn. As a result, her rants become less and less effective and less and less controversial.

She has basically faded into the background.

42. Her sentiments are not that unusual.
Lots of people think the same thing about those "giving aid & comfort to the enemy" (anyone who is against an American war).

In fact, many think they got lightly then and now.

45. The students killed at Kent State weren't protesting. They were walking to class.
The National Guard shot wildly and hit people on the edge of the protest. And, even if the people murdered had been protesting, their right to do so is codified in the U.S. Constitution. Right of free assembly. First Amendment right of free speech. Right to protest the government. All those things that Libertarians love to talk about.

50. The funny thing is, I could craft a better justification than she did...
Edited on Wed Jun-08-11 07:14 PM by personman
It would be bullshit, but it would be more believable bullshit. I could probably even get a few DUers on that side unfortunately.

Just mention the Kent State protesters damaged property and you could get all the right and half America's supposed "left" offering justifications (for the shootings).

Both parties value property over life. Part of the reason I identify as a left-anarchist. I vote democrat because I'm in a swing state and often that is the lesser evil, but that is about it.
