Let me preface this entry by stating that I disagree with her politics but that is not why I dislike her.
Ann Coulter, right wing nutcase, is at it again. On Monday she appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews and was confronted by Presidential candidate John Edwards’ wife, Elizabeth, regarding the many hateful remarks she has made against John in the past few years. Elizabeth wanted answers. There was no real reason for these hurtful remarks and Edwards wanted to know why her husband was a target. Over the past few years she has said things like “John Edwards has a bumper sticker that reads ‘ask me about my dead son”, in reference to the son Mr.& Mrs. Edwards lost and Coulter’s thought that they were exploiting his death. During Elizabeth Edwards’ comments about the hateful comments made towards her dead son all Ann could do was laugh. More recently she told Good Morning America that she wished John Edwards died in a terrorist attack. I would like to officially award her the most ignorant person in America award for her unprovoked and offensive comments. I really don’t think she realizes what comes out of her mouth. She claims its being a ‘conservative’, there is only so far that ‘conservative’ excuse can cover you. There is a point where one becomes just downright a terrible human being. Coulter has officially crossed that line.
It’s not even just Edwards. Coulter has been spewing hate and ignorance for years. She lambasted 9/11 widows by saying, “These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them... I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much”. Coulter obviously does not care for America as much as she claims. I understand supporting one’s nation, but in my book, family comes first. These widows were not ‘enjoying their husband’s death’. No one enjoys the death of a loved one. I really don’t think Coulter understands how ignorant she actually is because the comments continue to pour out. She is adamantly anti-homosexual and repeatedly attacks that group of people and well as using the gay slur beginning with ‘F’ to refer to anyone and everyone that doesn’t agree with her. She has even attacked disabled Vietnam veterans by saying to one of them live on TV, “People like you caused us to lose that war”. First of all people like the Vietnam veteran should be celebrated for their service, not attacked by ignorance. People like Coulter should have been given a gun and dropped into Vietnam. I bet you she couldn’t have “won” the war for us. In reference to the Columbine shootings she said, “If those kids had been carrying guns they would have gunned down this one [child] gunman. ... Don't pray. Learn to use guns”. If every child carried a gun, America would be in a worse state than it already it. I’m not implying that praying is the answer, but it is far better than turning our children into a militia.
She and others like her have set America back with her hatred of anything unlike themselves. She is even anti-women. I truly don’t understand how a woman can be anti-woman. She was quoted in 2003 as saying, “It would be a much better country if women did not vote”. She feels that the reason Republicans lose so often is because Women tend to vote democratic. News flash Coulter - Republicans lose elections so often because they don’t know how to run a country properly, not because women can vote. She has also gone on to say that women should not be allowed in the military because “women are too vicious”. What? That doesn’t even make any sense! She has even bitten the hand that feeds her in her attacks on the media. Media is what has created her. She would not be selling half as many books if she were not a clear and present force in the media. I could go on and on about different groups Coulter has attacked but I won’t, it would take too long. I am all for free speech, free speech for those who can support what they are saying, not spew hatred without remorse. Ann Coulter is officially the most ignorant person in America.
