A Pit Bull Barks Hate: Ann Coulter and the "F" Word

Right wing nut case and rabid pit bull Ann Coulter made an anti-gay crack at a Conservative conference last Friday. No one heard about it for a while although it was witnessed by hundreds of journalists and captured by television cameras. At the end of her speech Coulter said: "I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, but it turns out that you have to go into rehab if you use the word faggot , so I'm kind of at an impasse."

It took some Democratic lawmakers and liberal bloggers and even a few Republicans to make it a news story. But where is the clamor?? Where is the indignation. Oh, how silly of me, it was directed against Gay men, so therefore it is not that big of deal, it is still legal to do that. Now if she offended Blacks with a word?? Katie bar the door.

It shows there is a double standard still in the land of the free, home of the brave and all created equal. If you believe that fairy (no pun intended) tale, I have some others for you. Edwards distanced himself from two gay left-wing bloggers who drew fire and brimstone from the right wing by their criticism of their past anti-Catholic writings. It is ok to pillory gays and lesbians and our supporters.

Coulter is the darling of the right, and as the right wing is prone to do, attacks personally and cruelly as she has no facts to back up her beliefs. This is the same non-human that called a politically active group of 9/11 widows "witches," saying: "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much. . . . And by the way, how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies?" WTF?? She got applause by the way from many in the audience when she called Edwards "faggot" and the above comments help sell her books.

Some dismiss her as a loudmouth who will say anything to sell a book or get attention. But when she is featured speaker at a GOP fund raiser, and GOP leaders are silent about her insults, then they are Nazis by association, just like the citizens of Germany who stood idly by in tacet support of Hitler.

I can't figure out how to post a comment on your blog -- so...
have you added your name to the Human Rights Commissions mailing to the editor of Coulter's paper. What a "_itch" she is -- too bad she isn't a scab that can just be scratched away!!

And how about Pace yesterday -- thank God that Def.Sec.Gates took an immediate stance.

I tell ya, the entire government is being run by a bunch of (fill in the blanks)!
