On Sean Hannity’s radio show, venomous wingnut heroine Ann Coulter says President Obama is a “Marxist.”
And a “Muslim.”
Well, not really a Muslim. Something even worse. An atheist.
The right wing base has been so degraded by years of bogus smears and outright lies that they don’t even blink at this kind of absurd illogical hate speech. They just swallow it and ask for seconds.
All these slurs are just substitutes for the word they really want to say.
Ann Coulter has always been willing to take the crazy rhetoric one step farther, and now she’s coming out as the champion of right wing American creationism: LIBERALS’ VIEW OF DARWIN UNABLE TO EVOLVE!!!
Intelligent design scientists look at the evidence and develop their theories; Darwinists start with a theory and then rearrange the evidence.
These aren’t scientists. They are religious fanatics for whom evolution must be true so that they can explain to themselves why they are here, without God. (It’s an accident!)
Any evidence contradicting the primitive religion of Darwinism — including, for example, the entire fossil record — they explain away with non-scientific excuses like “the dog ate our fossils.”
LGF Pages author Ausador pointed out this article at the Daily Caller, where they’re gloating over Ann Coulter’s newest screed with a list of the Top 10 shocking things in Ann Coulter’s book ‘Demonic’ that will drive liberals crazy.
Coulter’s been eclipsed lately by some of the female GOP politicians on the scene, giving her competition for the Most Extreme Distaff Wingnut label. But if these excerpts from her book are accurate, she’s now pretty openly making excuses for fanatical murderers, saying that violence against abortion providers is a natural reaction to “judicial tyranny” — and likening abortion clinic violence to the Tienanmen Square protests.
Very nasty stuff. Has it driven me crazy? Well, that’s a pretty short drive, but my reaction is closer to weary disgust.
“But more important, abortion clinic violence should not be filed under ‘Political Violence’ at all. It should be filed under ‘Things Liberals Won’t Let Americans Vote On.’…When there is no legal process for pro-lifers to pursue to outlaw abortion – unlike every policy liberals violently protest – some pro-lifers will inevitably respond to lawlessness with lawlessness,” Coulter writes. “In the first few years after [Planned Parenthood v. Casey], about six more people were killed in attacks on abortion clinics. Most of the abortionists were shot or, depending upon your point of view, had a procedure performed on them with a rifle.”
“There were no more constitutional options left to fight judicial tyranny on the little matter of mass murder,” she concludes. “Thus, abortion clinic violence is more akin to the Tiananmen Square protests in Communist China than any liberal riot in America. Want to stop violence at abortion clinics? Repeal Roe and let Americans vote.”
It’s a battle of dimwits, as Ann Coulter goes on the Bill O’Reilly show to argue that anyone exposed to radiation from Japan’s damaged nuclear plants is actually much less likely to get cancer. That’s right; Coulter actually says radiation is good for you. Scientists agree!
And uh, about that study of radioactive Taiwan apartment buildings Coulter cites to back up her idiocy:
In popular treatments of radiation hormesis, a study of the inhabitants of apartment buildings in Taiwan has received prominent attention. The building materials had been accidentally contaminated with Cobalt-60 but the study found cancer mortality rates 96.4% lower than in the population as a whole. However, this study compared the relatively young irradiated population with the much older general population of Taiwan, which is a major flaw. A subsequent study by Hwang et al. (2006) found a significant exposure-dependent increase in cancer in the irradiated population, particularly leukemia in men and thyroid cancer in women, though this trend is only detected amongst those who were first exposed before the age of 30.
The “gay Republican” is a weird chimera, trying to carve out a place in a political party fiercely committed to denying them civil rights. I’d like to wish them good luck, but this seems like the very definition of “wasted effort.”
And Ann Coulter’s speech at GOProud’s “Homocon” event is a stark reminder of that: Ann Coulter At Homocon: ‘Marriage Is Not A Civil Right. You’re Not Black.’
First, she ran down the stereotypical stand-up comedian’s list of reasons, including that lacking the legal right to marriage allows the less-committed partner to weasel out of it. But in a more serious note, she parroted the losing arguments of the lawyers supporting California’s Prop 8 and told the crowd that the reason she opposes (and they should oppose) same sex marriage is that it is strictly for procreation.
In one of a series of racially insensitive remarks that pervaded her speech, Coulter added, “Marriage is not a civil right. You’re not black.” It was part of a larger argument on which she later elaborated, telling the crowd that the 14th Amendment only applies to African-Americans and that it does not, in fact, apply to women, LGBT people or other minorities.
Despite the laugh lines, Coulter’s arguments against same sex marriage were not well-received by much of the crowd: for instance, the question and answer session after the speech was dominated by Homocon attendees grilling her on her position on a range of issues, including whether opposition to same sex marriage was really in line with the conservative principles of limited government and whether she personally believes that homosexuality is a choice — a question she declined to answer. In response to a question from GOProud chairman Chris Barron, she did imply that conservative opposition to same sex marriage from politicians who benefited from no-fault divorce was hypocritical and suggested that marriage-minded politicians ought to back a wholesale effort to repeal no-fault divorce laws in the states.
In fact, despite opening her speech with a joke about the difficulty of “coming out” as a fiscal conservative to one’s parents — something she congratulated the attendees on — Coulter’s speech to GOProud mystifyingly focused on social issues and not the fiscal and foreign policy issues that brought most of the attendees there. For instance, she told GOProud that the conservative gay rights movement ought to make common cause with the anti-abortion movement because, she said, “as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who’s getting aborted.” Coulter also made a forceful case against sex education in schools, accusing liberals of attempting to teach kindergartners about “fisting” (which garnered her a heckler, who shouted out “What’s wrong with fisting?”) and told the crowd that most parents didn’t want their children learning about the “homosexual lifestyle” instead of reading and writing.
The head kook at World Net Daily, Joseph Farah, is really throwing down lately. First, he excommunicated Ann Coulter. Now he’s casting out the host of the Glenn Beck Comedy Hour: Glenn Beck – material boy.
There you have it. Beck doesn’t care about one of the most blatant and despicable examples of judicial tyranny in the history of our country. He doesn’t care about the institution of marriage and its 5,000-year history. He doesn’t care that the Bible says God created marriage way back in Genesis and that Jesus affirmed that. He doesn’t care that the family is the building block of a society and that smarter men have explained how you simply can’t have freedom and self-governance without it. He also doesn’t seem to care about what might become of children adopted into such unions.
That, my friends, is the perfect illustration of what’s wrong with the materialist worldview – whether it is held by a raving Marxist or a conservative entertainer.
That’s right — Farah is denouncing Beck not because he’s too hateful, but because he’s not hateful enough. Those wingnuts! What will they think next?
Joseph Farah of World Net Daily is excommunicating Ann Coulter from the Church of Bad Craziness, because she’s speaking at a conference sponsored by Republican gay organization GOProud. Watch out! It’s a right wing theocratic homophobic slapfight!
WND dumps Ann Coulter from Miami due to Homoconflict. (Yes, that really is their title.)
WASHINGTON – Conservative superstar Ann Coulter today was dropped as a keynote speaker for WND’s “Taking America Back National Conference” next month because of her plan to address an event titled “HOMOCON” sponsored by the homosexual Republican group GOProud that promotes same-sex marriage and military service for open homosexuals.
Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, said the decision was a gut-wrenching one for his team because of their fondness for Coulter as both a person and writer-speaker.
“Ultimately, as a matter of principle, it would not make sense for us to have Ann speak to a conference about ‘taking America back’ when she clearly does not recognize that the ideals to be espoused there simply do not include the radical and very ‘unconservative’ agenda represented by GOProud,” said Farah. “The drift of the conservative movement to a brand of materialistic libertarianism is one of the main reasons we planned this conference from the beginning.”
Asked by Farah why she was speaking to GOProud, Coulter said: “They hired me to give a speech, so I’m giving a speech. I do it all the time.”
Farah then asked: “Do you not understand you are legitimizing a group that is fighting for same-sex marriage and open homosexuality in the military – not to mention the idea that sodomy is just an alternate lifestyle?”
Alex Knepper explains how he was dumped from David Horowitz’s Newsreal blog, for criticizing Ann Coulter’s newfound opposition to the Afghanistan War: How I Got Dumped for Criticizing Coulter.
NewsReal writer David Swindle responds with an unhinged post, spewing insults like a firehose: The Liar Alex Knepper Wasn’t Fired for Criticizing Ann Coulter, He Was Fired for Being An Intemperate, Unmanageable, Perverted, Impulsive, Narcissistic Child. Yes, that’s really the title.
Knepper replies to Swindle’s deranged post here: Am I a Pervert? My Reply to NewsRealBlog Smears.
This is pretty standard stuff for NewsRealBlog.com; last January when I criticized writer Ryan Mauro for his connection to the virulently homophobic and anti-Muslim “Christian Action Network,” he replied with a similar brain-dump of insults, and allowed his commenters to post threats against me.
