In 2006 Ann
Coulter said, " . . . Christianity fuels everything I
write. Being a Christian means that I am called upon to do battle against lies,
injustice, cruelty, hypocrisy -- you know, all the virtues in the church of
right-wing American Christian-style, she has also called John Edwards a
�faggot� which resulted in a fund-raising bonanza for the Presidential hopeful.
Coulter wrote that Mr. and Mrs. Edwards have a bumper sticker on their car that
reads �Ask me about my dead son� in reference to the death of their 16-year-old
child, Wade, who was killed in a car accident in 1996. Coulter criticized the
four 9/11 widows who had the audacity to support Democrats by writing that
�I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much.� Regarding the
�liberal media,� Coulter stated: "My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is
he did not go to the New York Times Building."
All of this
repulsive rhetoric resulted in increased book sales for Coulter and, more
importantly, she got a huge dose of attention from each outrageous barb,
something that her emaciated little being craves above spiritual or edible
A doctor should
analyze this attention-starved, skeletal scalawag and the psychology behind her
infantile opinions and rabble-rousing statements. The diagnosis seems quite
simple. She opposes abortion rights and views all liberals who favor abortion
rights as the vilest people alive because they condone the murder of �innocent
unborn babies.� This �get-the-bad-guys� mentality creates a free-for-all,
anything-goes brand of lunacy in the oxygen-deprived brains of the likes of
Coulter. Of course, she picks on liberals about other issues but it�s
definitely abortion that makes her stringy bleached-blonde hair stand on end.
Who could forget
anti-abortion nutwing and rabid Christian Randall Terry who was operating from
the same warped perspective when he called for the bombing of Planned
Parenthood clinics and the murder of doctors who perform any kind of abortion
procedure? If you appreciate the warped logic behind their belief system, you
would understand that Randall Terry and Ann Coulter have no choice but to act out
against anyone that they deem to be �baby killers.� Granted Coulter has only
stated her wish that John Edwards be killed by terrorists while Terry is
capable of ordering such an act from his Christian followers. At its core, they
share the same brand of religious conviction that leads religious fanatics to
commit heinous acts.
Volumes can be
written about people like Coulter who call themselves Christians and act like
repellent overbearing tyrants because they are so convinced that they have a
lock on the truth. They�re never humble; seldom compassionate and rarely
Christ-like in anything they say or do. In 2006, Coulter herself said it best:
�Christ died for my sins and nothing else matters.� And that sentiment rears
its ugly head in every move she makes though Christ himself would beg to
differ. A lot of other things matter.
that the Bible is her favorite book, narrowly edging out the biography of the
�Hillside Strangler.� If this is true, one wonders if she can read Jesus� words
with even an elementary level of comprehension. Just what did Jesus mean when
he supposedly said "Blessed are the peacemakers;" "Love your
enemies;" "It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle
than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God;" "Whatsoever you do
to the least of my brothers--which you do unto me"?
A more recent
statement by Coulter further reveals her limited intellect. She said, �I�m more
of a man than any liberal.� It�s good that she acknowledges her manliness
considering her prominent Adam�s apple and her pre-pubescent boyish figure.
Unfortunately Coulter thinks she�s a femme fatale and she intends to insult
liberal men by impugning their masculinity. Coulter does not understand that
liberals are more evolved than she is and they don�t worry about schoolyard
taunts that have no relevance in 2007. The fear that a skinny cynical bully
like Coulter might label someone a sissy would only have resonance in
conservative circles where grown men still worry about who has the most playing
cards in their bikes� spokes.
The lack of
manliness that Coulter perceives in liberal men is nothing more than fodder for
her infantile conservative fans. Keep in mind that these are the same people
who worry about naked statues in the halls of the Justice Department. They
obsess about their neighbor�s sex lives and giggle about anything to do with
human body parts. Sadly many of these folks are so repressed that they
eventually get caught making child pornography videos with their favorite
minister or some other heinous act born from years of denying human nature.
The fact is that
Coulter isn�t nearly as intelligent as she or her privileged silver-spoon-fed
education would have you believe. Take away her family�s influence and money
and she�d probably be typing memos about some sales clerk�s retirement party
from a run-of-the-mill American company on the outskirts of New Canaan,
Connecticut; even more bitter and nasty than she is today because no one would
pay her any attention.
