Ann Coulter Reaches New Low

This is truly one of the most disgusting columns I have ever read. I refuse to link to any website from which she can benefit, but this hate-mongerer should be exposed for what she is, so I will link to the Salon post about her here. First, Coulter's take on Darfur:
These people can't even wrap up genocide. We've been hearing about this slaughter in Darfur forever — and they still haven't finished. The aggressors are moving like termites across that country. It's like genocide by committee. Who's running this holocaust in Darfur, FEMA?

This is truly a war in which we have absolutely no interest.
And many readers will be happy to see the high regard she has for people of the Jewish faith:
Moses had to grab Jews by the scruff of their necks and drag them to the desert for 40 years to get a generation capable of living in freedom — and even then the Jews were complaining about it being too drafty.

Even in the desert, the Jews would not stop with the golden calves. God nearly let the whole lot of them perish in the desert, he was so angry about their idolatrous ways.

Hasn't anyone told Coulter that she can stop already, she doesn't have to prove that she is a disgusting human being over and over again.

Then again, I'm not one to tell her to stop. Every time she opens her mouth, it allows reasonable people (liberals) to point out her hatred and disgusting views, and if it doesn't bring more over to the liberal camp, it scares them away in droves from the Republican one.

A belated hello and welcome to the blog, KY. Excellent post, btw.

Nothing says racist like Ann the Man Coulter. But when you think of it, who is worse, Ann or the guys like Chris Matthews who gush all over her on their shows? Ashen is correct, IMO, the Republican party is going to be the ones who will be hurt by her words. Her and Jerry Fawell will send the stampedes of Reagan Republicans and Independents running to pull the lever for the nearest Democrat.

That woman is so hateful, I just keep expecting her to just go up in flames one day. The smell of sulfur around that woman must be overwhelming. The thing that scares me the most about Ann the Man, besides that humongous adams apple, is that she may breed someday.

It's amazing though that anyone not only bothers to read her, but that they pay attention to what she says.
She is such a filthy human being and seems to be proud of the garbage and hate that she spews.
I like to hold onto the hope that most people who have anything resembling integrity can recognize her from a mile off.
Once a hater, always a hater.

Vile, disgusting - but she is driving people away from the Rethugs and that's what counts.

As vile and disgusting as she is, the question must be asked: Who is publishing her verbal vomit and WHY???

Seriously, it is long past the stage when her bloviations could be considered "entertainment" and have gone over the line to "offensive" to any sensate human being.

This is what surprises me, too, John Aravosis' Neighbor Barbara...that she is still visible.

I can't even be bothered to respond to her crassness because I think she's insane. I mean that literally. Haven't we all seen her evolution from simply opinionated (I'm remembering back in the earliest days of MSNBC when she was a regular panel member) to utterly and completely nuts?

And that's why it kills me that she's given air and print space. She's certifiable. Yet people continue to encourage her, be entertained by her, or are otherwise fascinated. It needs to stop.

But it won't stop.
The people who listen to her are the same people who go to bullfights and love to watch train wrecks and bloody auto accidents.

She's pathetic and not worth the time of normal rational people.

This too, will pass!

Like all good GOPers, she's following the money. Ann is at a point in her career where the commentary she makes has to be more outrageous than the last. Otherwise she loses her audience. The depths of hate to keep her audience have only begun to be plumbed.

At this point, one of her friends need to...oops, I misspoke. I said she has friends (can't see how)! Er, anyway, an intervention is definitely in order for both On-The-Raggity Ann and Bill O'Reilly.

As long as there is money to be made by publishing her, she'll get published. Here we are talking about her, so the controversial thing still works obviously.

I was listening to Rush the other day (the fat-ass dope fiend, not the rock band) and I wondered if it was possible that the majority of his listeners were people like me, just there to witness the horror show.

Same thing with Coulter. If the people who hated her just ignored her, she'd probably be out of business. But I'm glad she's around to remind us just how bad it can get.

We shouldn't ignore Ann Coulter. We should read her. We should study her. We should quote her at every opportunity. We should make Ann Coulter the face of Conservatism in America. On every issue we should work to make Ann Coulter the counter point to our point. We need to ignore the Conservatives who have abandoned the president and the war. Don't quote Andrew Sullivan or the latest rat to escape the sinking administration. Quote Ann Coulter. Make her synonymous with Conservatism. Then one day, hopefully soon, America will hear "conservative" and an image of a crazy eyed, profanity spewing, amoral fashionista will pop into their heads. And a wonderful day that will be.

As has been pointed out somewhere, Coulter has a following of people who think like she talks. Yes, they are really out there, millions of them, and she gives voice to their darkest musings.

THAT is much more frightening than the existence of one Ann Coulter.

we should buy ann a ticket to go to darfur and run things. she could wear one of those "kill 'em all, let god sort 'em out" T shirts from Soldier of Fortune magazine. i'm sure President Bashir would be impressed ......

By all means keep posting her vile diatribes. To ignore her is to play the role of Good German. Sunlight is, after all, the best disinfectant.

Thanks for the blog...

She still is published in the Jewish World Review; will they re-publish this lovely scree of hers?

I don't really get the whole Coulter thing. She's like a crazy bag-lady; ignore her, don't make eye contact and just keep walking.

I think Ann Coulter is a nasty, thieving, lying creep... but I have to admit I was amused by the Darfur joke. It's blacker than black, but I tend to hold with the aphorism, coined I think by Ned Bluestone (sp?) in The National Lampoon Encyclopedia of Humor: "The only sacred cow is irreverence."

Is there anyone who didn't laugh -- albeit guiltily -- at the jokes which popped up within a couple of days of Jonestown or the Challenger disaster? (Oh, you're probably all too young to remember. If so, see examples below.)

I didn't know how to read Coulter's following line, to the effect that no one cares about Darfur -- is she endorsing, criticizing or simply reporting such tragic apathy? If the first, then yes, of course, it IS a heinous sentiment.

I can at least understand how some people might find the genocide in Darfur too horrific for humor, but honestly don't see what could be at all objectionable to anyone about Coulter's slightly irreverent but not inaccurate summary of the Passover story. It's certainly no more critical of the behavior of the Jewish people than the original.

Believe me, I'm amazed to be defending Ann Coulter. I've never before heard a single quote from her which didn't fill me with outrage, contempt or disgust.

CHALLENGER JOKES:

Q: What were Christa MacAuliffe's last words?
A: "What does this button do?"

Q: What was the last thing to go through Christa MacAuliffe's head?
A: Her asshole.

"I can at least understand how some people might find the genocide in Darfur too horrific for humor,"

Not only that, but you have two minutes to get across something that might change the world, change opinion and mobilise people. Do you start straight in, or tell a joke that is hypercritical of the progress of a genocide?

Coulter has nothing to say of any substance, so she throws out insults. This isn't only tasteless, it's a priory for a way of behaviour that exposes the bad sides of free speech bordering on hate speech.
