Ann Coulter, an infamous political pundit, has been making headlines with her new book: “Godless: The Church of Liberalism.” In the book, Coulter takes it upon herself to “expose” Sept. 11 widows for who they really are: “These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles; reveling in their status as celebrities.I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”
Though most rational people would find these comments disgusting, sadly there appears to be a large contingency of people who support Ms. Coulter’s point of view, as her book is now No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list. This got me to wondering if these readers of “Godless” also support Ms. Coulter when she said in 2005: “Liberals like to scream and howl about McCarthyism, I say let’s give them some..it’s time for a new McCarthyism.” I wonder if Coulter’s female fans supported her when she said that: “It (U.S.A.) would be a much better country if women did not vote.” Certainly people couldn’t have agreed when Coulter said: “The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man’s dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet – it’s yours.” What about the time she said: “I support the government of Israel for the same reason I support apartheid in South Africa, because they are surrounded by savages.”
The sad thing is that people must have agreed with her on every one of these comments, otherwise how could she still be shoveling these idiocies around the forum of public debate and making millions of dollars doing so?
