Ann Coulter apologized for her faggot remark about Edwards. Coulter said, “C’mon, it was a joke. I would never insult gays by suggesting that they are like John Edwards. That would be mean.” McCain, Romney, and Giuliani all denounced Coulter for the original remark. It is typical stuff from her, and it got laughs as the right wingers are quick to point out when they claim it was a joke. Coulter has written some harsh stuff about liberals in the past, and CPAC knew exactly what they where getting. An example of Coulters hate can be seen in this Feb. 28 article from her syndicated column,
Liberals have always had a thing about eliminating humans. Stalin wanted to eliminate the kulaks and Ukranians, vegetarian atheist Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate the Jews, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wanted to eliminate poor blacks, DDT opponent Rachel Carson wanted to eliminate Africans (introduction to her book “Silent Spring” written by â€¦ Al Gore!), and population-control guru Paul Ehrlich wants to eliminate all humans.
She has also called Arabs “ragheads”, joked about “taking a shot” at killing Bill Clinton, has joked about assassinating Justice John Paul Stevens, called Al Gore a “total fag,” has suggested that Bill and Hillary Clinton are gay, and claimed that 9/11 widows were “enjoying” their husbands’ deaths among many other things.
Right Wingers have been backing her up on this one claiming it was just a joke. Pat Buchanan and Tucker Carlson called her “courageous.” John Gibson launched distortions about Bill Maher to defend Coulter. And on Fox News Tonight Ann Coulter fires back at her critics after her controversial comments about John Edwards on Hannity and Colmes. This is the top video on fox News right now.
If Ann had a real argument to back up her bullshit she wouldn’t need to stoop to this level. She really isn’t sorry about any of it, and will continue to spew this stuff. As long as the right embraces her, they too are guilty by proxy of the same hateful mindset.
