Ann Coulter: Proof the media is not liberal

5 Mar

Ah, Ann. What would we do without you? While you rail on about how “liberal” the mainstream media is, you yourself are proof that it is not liberal by any means. Here’s what you said on Friday:

COULTER: Oh, and I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards. But it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word “faggot,” so I’m — so I’m kind of at an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards. So I think I’ll just conclude here and take your questions.

Now, when a professional basketball player like Tim Hardaway makes anti-gay statements on a radio show, it’s a story (of course, at least Tim was telling his views, not trying to use homophobia to smear someone). When a TV actor says something similar, he gets in trouble. But when you, Ann, can’t debate John Edwards on his ideas, you have to stoop to this kind of stuff–and you get a pass.

So many people say you’re smart, Ann, but if that’s so, why can’t you argue without the need to make such horrible, hateful statements?

And if the media is so liberal, Ann, why haven’t they jumped all over your case? Or, better yet, wouldn’t you expect them to stop giving you a forum to speak?

The more disturbing question, of course, is why did so many people at the Conservative Political Action Conference cheer loudly after your comment? And why haven’t the presidential contenders in your party insisted that you not be invited back? By sharing a stage with you, they tacitly endorse your views.

You’ve proved two things, Ann. One, true conservatives are not kind people. Those who call themselves conservative but disagree with your hatred are probably not really conservatives. The other thing you’ve proven, Ann, is that you need help. You clearly have to become more and more inflammatory in order to keep attention focused on yourself. When you reach the extreme, you will flame out just like Joe McCarthy did. And it won’t be a pretty sight. Get some help.

    Coulter is a wack. She and what’s-her-name-who-shaved-her-head (I don’t even care enough to look it up) would have a lot to talk about in therapy.

    As for the “liberal” media, Fox “news” (the quotes here used to suggest the sarcastic tone I’d use to pronounce the word if I were actually speaking those two words in the order printed), had two commentators on this morning discussing the after-effect of both Coulter and Maher’s recent public words. Not so much of Coulter’s facile exposition (essentially, that she isn’t really to be taken seriously) as Maher’s suggestion that things would be better if Cheney were dead ( “I’m just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That’s a fact.”).

    So, he’s a bad boy and Ann is just a mischief maker?

    There are various quotes on Wikipedia documenting Ann Coulter’s propensity toward the violent removal of several public figures. Does no one else sense that maybe SHE ought to have been under a great deal more scrutiny by Fox?

    Hmmmmmm.

    Ann Coulter not castigated over this? Oh, I don’t know…I heard about it ad nauseum from the major TV news players. Saw it in about a dozen online papers. It was covered fairly extensively. But I agree with you that what she said was sad and offensive. Between her and Al Franken, civil discourse has suffered tremendously. These two bloated bozos need to get off the public airwaves and hide in their respective caves (probably neighbors.)
