Coulter Shocka Video
Several readers emailed the link to this Liveleak video of Ann Coulter’s appearance on the Donny Deutsch show.
I know some of you are slapping your foreheads and screaming, “Why? Dear Lord, why? Don’t hurt us, Charles!”
But since there were so many strong opinions about this one (mostly from people who didn’t actually see the interview), I think there’s some value to be had from going to the source, so we’re all talking about the same thing.
My opinion hasn’t changed: she was winding up Deutsch, and all it took was a straightforward statement about Christian doctrine. To call this “antisemitic” is beyond ludicrous, and it’s almost comical to watch Deutsch do his best to twist and spin Coulter’s words, working himself up into a lather and comparing Coulter to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Postscript: Dennis Prager discussed this incident on his radio show this morning, and his take on it was very similar to mine: it’s another case of anti-conservative hysteria, drummed up by organizations like Media Matters, and very much a tempest in a teapot. (And Dennis pointed out that Ann Coulter has always been a strong supporter of Israel, which is quite true.)
