The Truly Godless One
As hard as it was, I bit my tongue the first time Ann Coulter came out to publicize her book Godless. I bit my tongue until it bled when she called the 9/11 widows harpies whose husbands were probably planning to divorce them when they were killed. But if I don't speak out now I may well burst a blood vessel. Ann Coulter was just on Hardball with Chris Matthews on MSNBC. Once again, she was promoting her book. Matthews was interviewing her outside with a crowd of people around.
Into the interview, he allowed the people watching to ask her questions. One woman asked Ann how she could call other people Godless when her own words regarding Al Gore were so mean and judgemental. Ann's answer was to insult the woman and saying she just obviously wasn't as "perky" as the woman was. Another guy asked her a question about how she handles opposing viewpoints from the liberal press and she turned around and said she had no trouble with liberal press people unlike little miss bubbly.
I have noticed that Ann never answers questions by actually answering the questions. Instead, she just attacks whoever is criticizing her and anyone else. Everything wrong with the world according to Ann Coulter is the fault of LIBERALS. Anyone who is a liberal, according to Ms. Coulter's highly Educated opinion, is a traitor to this country and a coward. Let's explore that opinion shall we? Hmm, Bush and his entire White House are conservatives. The majority of the House and Senate are conservatives. Ann's a conservative. Just how many of them are either serving or have a child serving in the military? How many of them or their children are over in Iraq on the front lines? How many of them or their children have been killed? Answer to all 3 questions....NONE!
Yet these people have had the nerve to call people like John Kerry, and even republican John McCain cowards and defeatists. People who actually SERVED! Now, back to Ann Coulter's opinions as quoted in her book. According to Ms. Coulter the 9/11 widows should not be allowed to criticize the Iraq war because no one can challenge their views without looking like insensitive idiots. Like Ann doesn't look that way anyway. But Ann, once again, you have made a false statement, no surprise there. You can say that while you respect their opinions and why they have them, this is why you disagree with their viewpoint. And you still look respectful...what a concept.
Then there is Ann Coulter saying the 9/11 widows are harpies whose husbands were probably planning to divorce them. Once again, I prove my point that Ann can NOT make a point about anything without resorting to insults and extremely cruel and uncalled for statements of opinion. Yet Ann has the audacity to call LIBERALS godless. Uh Ann, I hate to break it to you but shouldn't you have given up name-calling in grade school?
Next up, Ann has had the nerve to say the 9/11 widows are actually happy that their husbands are dead because they have gotten famous off the deaths. Not only is that assertion ludricrous, but isn't that what Ann Coulter has done without having been related to anyone who died that horrible day? Isn't the whole message of her book, which she is trying to SELL to the public, spawned on the backs of those who died? Isn't her fame and money coming from the exploitation of a terrible tradgedy? Yet she has the gall to attack the 9/11 widows for demandng answers from the government about why their husbands died? Ms. Coulter, the only GODLESS one in this debate is you.
I am asking anyone who reads my blog to please boycot anything Ann Coulter does. This woman is without a doubt the most hateful and spiteful woman I have ever had the misfortune to hear from. I myself am a liberal and proud of it. But unlike Ms. Coulter, I do respect people with opposing viewpoints. I think people with different opinions are what makes this country great. Ann Coulter, on the other hand thinks anyone who dares to have a different opinion than hers is a traitor to this country. But then, as the picture of her shows, she would gladly bring back the era of McCarthyism.
