Ann Coulter: When Does This Crap End? (VIDEO)Op-Ed by: Tim King Salem-News.com
Coulter is a prime suspect in the theft of the nation's moral compass.
(SALEM, Ore.) - When we grow up we are taught the difference between right and wrong. Well before reaching adulthood, we are supposed to have a sound understanding of the bottom line, and a reasonable appreciation for the fact that mistakes carry consequences.
And networks give time to a media whore who taunts people over the death of their child, calls the widows of 9/11 firemen in New York "Greedy Witches", and states on national television that she hopes a leading politician will die in a terrorist attack.
It brings us to that rotten speck on the TV screen; a tortured soul called Ann Coulter, "Nazi Bitch" as she is known on countless Websites, and she brings us all a particular kind of shame that can't be contained in the continental United States.
The news in recent weeks has been packed with death and murder and tragedy. The rate of soldiers dying in Iraq is climbing, murders and random crimes are growing, and the national media's sense of self regulation is nowhere to be seen.
When students are gunned down on a college campus; shot dead, we cry as a national family. But Ann Coulter can verbalize her wishes for the murder of a high level public official, John Edwards, and FOX News goes on writing her paychecks.
Do Coulter supporters want the same threats to be leveled at politicians they support? If it isn't OK to scream fire in a theater, then how does this twisted person get away with this garbage?
In this next clip Coulter has a chance to show the preceding statement, here is that clip:
Well, that's simple... The wicked witch of the far right and FOX News is willing to exploit her good figure and she has long blonde hair. Sorry, but Coulter is the epitome of people in TV news that only exist because of their appearance. If she was homely and overweight, would she have this stage?
Somebody has to put things into perspective, because the luxury ride of American supremacy is over, and we have pulled out all the stops that once kept people like Coulter in better places, like jail. A time period when people felt compelled to be respectful and decent is growing smaller in the rear view mirror.
And it is more than a theory that world admiration for the United States has flown out the door, and now other nations are watching a diabolical pawn named Coulter getting what seems to be increasing time on the air.
In the two featured video clips, you can see Coulter at her worst, or at least what we hope is her worst.
She is a modern day incarnation of Jane Fonda's personality during the Vietnam War, a blasted traitor with disregard for the bond that is supposed to unite all Americans.
And that illustrates the most important thing that we all should feel obligated to remember; that this is not about right and left folks, it is about right and wrong.
It's also about the increasingly unethical behavior of media bullies who distance themselves farther from the truth, or any concern for Americans, with each passing day.
A former employer of Coulter's, Jonah Goldberg with National Review Online, described what it was like to work with her, "she behaved with a total lack of professionalism, friendship, and loyalty".
USA Today gave her the boot shortly after hiring her to cover the 2004 Democratic National Convention. She wrote one article that began, "Here at the Spawn of Satan convention in Boston..."
The bizarre and hateful church group and Coulter have become the two most covered national phenomena's that fully go for the throat of people when they have to bury their own children.
The Westboro Baptist Church does it so they can sue governments that allow them to be assaulted while they assert their civil rights.
Coulter does it for ratings and money.
One primary focus of Coulter's bad energy has been Senator John Edwards. In the past she has called him "faggot", now she says on national television that she hopes he is assassinated by terrorists. Here is the clip where she uses the reference "faggot".
This week on MSNBC's "Hardball," Elizabeth Edwards called in to the show to ask Coulter to stop making personal attacks on her husband, Democratic Presidential Candidate John Edwards.
She also called Coulter out for the tormenting remarks she made previously made about John Edwards having placed a bumper sticker on his car referencing his dead son.
"You had a column a number of years ago which made fun of Charlie Dean's death and suggested that my husband had a bumper sticker on his car that said 'ask me about my dead son.'"
Coulter interrupted her at that point and said, "That was three years ago".
Then as Mrs. Edwards tried to talk to Coulter about her dead son, a heckler yelled from the crowd, "Why isn't John Edwards making this call?" which Coulter then parroted as a response instead of addressing her cruel error. Watch the third video clip below:
It was a classic extension of the "sex sells" world that she hails from. Others call it Hollywood. Wear a low cut blouse and rely on a crowd heckler for your dialog on national TV, what a lousy act Ann Coulter is.
It is reported that response on MSNBC's political blog Wednesday was so heavy it crashed the server. People are angry and Coulter's presence on national TV is visible far outside our national borders.
In strange irony, the problems between Coulter's ability to remain decent in the TV industry and the Edwards family, are an unseen benefit for his presidential candidacy.
"I think when they engage in these attacks and use the language of hate, it's very important to stand up,'" Edwards said. "What happens if you are silent when this kind of hateful language is used - not just by her, but by anyone - hate gets a foothold."
Edwards pointed out that Coulter's attacks haven't been limited to him, but also included his rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination. Coulter has made fun of Hillary Rodham Clinton's legs and compared Barack Obama to terrorists because his middle name is Hussein.
"What she said about Senator Clinton and Senator Obama is outrageous,'' Edwards stated Wednesday. ``And somebody has to stand up when she makes these kind of attacks."
People seem to be waking up to the fact that we all have a lot in common in this country. We may have different backgrounds, but we are supposed to have a red white and blue bond, and it doesn't take a genius to spot a bad apple on a tree. Corporations supporting Coulter need to withdraw their support. People can call Crown Forum Publishing and Random House and tell them to drop their contract with Coulter.
Remember the censorship that has gone on in recent years over people who criticize the Bush Administration; the Dixie Chicks, Bill Mahr being canned from TV because he suggested that the terrorists who took their own lives to kill Americans were not cowards, and who can forget the whole country coming unglued over Janet Jackson's nipple making national airwaves.
With respect to Coulter's criminal statements about seeing Edwards die at the hands of terrorists; in all my life, I have never seen such contradictions.
Talk about losing your moral compass.
Here is another clip on Coulter, where she storms off the set of Hannity and Colmes:
Above all, FOX News is behind the rise of Coulter's attacks on our lingering decency. I have no doubt that the day will come when lies and blatant inaccuracy in news can again be sanctioned and at least disciplined. Even with public officials, there is a line drawn long ago in the sand, and I predict that Coulter is eventually going to be slammed by a huge wave that will sweep her kind out to sea forever.
