Ann Coulter

A friend of mine pointed me in her direction. He was quite good with a physical description of her and noted that she was born and bred in Conneticut. However, I think the following is interesting for people like myself.

Some quotes attributable to her:

  • "The swing voters---I like to refer to them as the idiot voters because they don't have set philosophical principles. You're either a liberal or you're a conservative if you have an IQ above a toaster. "---Beyond the News, Fox News Channel, 6/4/00
  • To a disabled Vietnam vet: "People like you caused us to lose that war."---MSNBC
However, I take comfort in the following:
  • (Courtesy of Wikipedia) When asked if she is a fundamentalist Christian, Coulter told interviewer David Bowman, "I don't think I've described myself that way, but only because I'm from Connecticut. We just won't call ourselves that." (2003) Though she seldom argues from a religious point of view, Coulter has commented on "leaders" the New York Times has labeled the "religious right", stating that Jerry Falwell's support was overrated and that Pat Robertson is ineffective and not conservative. (Slander, ch. 9) She commonly supports the positions of other Christian conservatives -- although she argues that such a term often constitutes a liberal slur.
  • "My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that's because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism."---MSNBC 2/8/97

Further, (courtesy of washingtonmonthly.com) "after the September 11 attack masterminded by a terrorist hoping to spark a religious war, virtually every official and pundit knew better than to take the bait. Except for conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who wrote in a syndicated column on September 12 that in responding to terrorists "we should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.""

In short, she's a nutcase and I completely disown and disregard her. She is neither a right-winger (she is a fascist) nor a Christian.

Hmmm... she is a nutter because the day of a terrorist attack she wrote an article saying what most people naturally thought...
