Save Ann Coulter's column ... write the newspaper

Write to save Ann Coulter's column at the Harrisonburg newspaper.

A local never-met-a-conservative-he-liked dem thanked me for passing along the link so he could write to DEMAND the newspaper do away with her column. Bub, I got the email link from one of your fellow libs so you can thank her.

More reactionary misinformation: I didn't use the word "demand," I said "urge." Big difference.

Semantics, Bub.

My mistake. It looks like a lie to me.

Why would we want to save that acidic witch's column? I tend to be conservative but I can't stand her or her vile mouth.

I say use the link to urge Harrisonburg to get rid of her

Lynn R. Mitchell said...

Nope, Grumpy, I disagree with you. Ann Coulter tells it like it is ... addressing the vile-mouthed libs. If we don't meet fire with fire we are going to be done in by these acidic liberals, and going after one of our own is playing right into their hands.

Time to stand up for those who stand up for us. I'm in Ann's corner.

Well I for one, refuse to lower myself to that level.

Just like I won't lower myself to eileen's level over at VB Dems.

I even put up a challenge for them to explain WHY they do the things they do. No one has answered as yet.

So then I opened it up to ALL. Only an anonymous poster has said anything.

I just don't get into the name calling thing. I have no problem, and I do it frequently on both sides of the aisle (no one's safe) calling it out. But I won't stoop to childish name calling.

I agree that Coulter "calls it like she sees it..." but she can do it with more class than most libs have. She would be more effective and would sway the "conservative center" as I like to consider myself, to her side.

But that's what makes this world go roundyround.

Thanks for not slamming me and proving my point. I would have hated that.

I think we can agree to disagree on this one.

Keep up the great work on your blog. I read it nearly everyday (no kidding!!!).

LOL of course I did call her an "acidic witch" didn't I? Oh well. Hipocrisy in Grumpy's World tonight.

I don't consider it lowering ourselves to their level. In fact, what she said was NOT what is being reported. She said she would have to go to rehab if she used a word like "faggot" to describe John Edwards (paraphrasing). She didn't call him that, and it came at the end of a long list of jokes about many politicians ... and it referred to a "Grey's Anatomy" incident where one actor called another "faggot" and was sent by the producers to rehab! The whole entire incident has been completely blown out of context ... and the libs are WAY too eager to yell "bigot" or whatever to shut down debate. It is intimidation, plain and simple, to shut up conservatives.

So I don't consider Ann or myself lowering ourselves to the libs' level. I admire that she's a strong woman, she stands up for herself without wimping out, and I'm disappointed she's taking heat from some conservatives.

But you won't catch her whining about it like the libs would do. I firmly believe she will pull herself up by the bootstraps (high-heel straps?) and crawl back on top of the best seller list. I have almost every one of her books on my shelves.

Hang in there, Ann. You go, Girl!

BTW, Grumpy ... thanks for coming by to read SWAC Girl.

You have got to be kidding me? Save Ann Coulter? Just about every statement she ever makes whether it be in her books, columns, speeches or interviews is in need of some serious fact checking. She has been called out countless times for making incorrect factual statements (Canadian troops sent to Vietnam?!). I honestly don't know where she comes up with her information. She usually just rambles out information which often isn't even coherent or applicable with the point she is trying to make and generally completely inaccurate. And as far as the remarks she made regarding John Edwards... Maybe you should watch the video posted all over the internet but it is perfectly clear that she is implying that Edwards himself since she said

"Oh and I was going to have a few comments on the other presidential candidate John Edwards, um, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word faggot, so, I'm, so... I'm kind of at an impass, can't really talk about Edwards so I think I'll just conclude here and take your questions, Thank You" (actual quote)

If she can't comment on Edwards without using the work faggot then I think it is pretty clear to anyone what she is saying. And since you appear to be agreeing that it isn't OK to call someone a faggot but it is clear from the above quote that she did do just that, where does that leave you?

Signalfire, if you are so judgmental about what Ann Coulter may have been thinking of saying, then turn your elitist eyes upon these examples (thanks to Virginia Virtucon) of libs who were politically incorrect in speaking about conservatives. I'll be waiting to hear your outrage....

National Public Radio legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg: [I]f there is retributive justice [Sen. Jesse Helms] will get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it.

USA Today syndicated columnist Julianne Malveaux, on Clarence Thomas: I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease.

Washington Post syndicated columnist Richard Cohen: For hypocrisy, for sheer gall, [Newt] Gingrich should be hanged.

Comedian and (former) talk show host Craig Kilborn [Caption under footage of George W. Bush]: Snipers Wanted

Members of the St. Petersburg Democratic Club: And then there’s Rumsfeld who said of Iraq “We have our good days and our bad days.” We should put this S.O.B. up against a wall and say “This is one of our bad days” and pull the trigger.

Actor Alec Baldwin on Conan O’Brien: [I]f we were in other countries, we would all right now, all of us together, all of us together would go down to Washington and we would stone Henry Hyde to death! We would stone him to death! [crowd cheers] Wait! Shut up! Shut up! No shut up! I’m not finished. We would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and we’d kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families.

Comedian Chris Rock: If President Clinton would pardon me I would whip Starr’s ass right now. I will get a crew from Brooklyn and we will stomp him like, like, we’re Savion Glover. We’ll stomp him like it’s bringing da noise.

Director Spike Lee on Charlton Heston: Shoot him with a .44 caliber Bulldog.

James Carville on Ken Starr:
He’s one more mistake away from not having any kneecaps.

Syndicated columnist Alexander Cockburn: There is a sound case to be made for dropping a tactical nuclear weapon on the Cuban section of Miami. The move would be applauded heartily by most Americans. Alas, Operation Good Riddance would require the sort of mature political courage sadly lacking in Washington, D.C., these days.

Columnist, author, media pundit, journalist, and newspaper editor Dan Savage: My plan? Get close enough to Bauer to give him the flu, which, if I am successful, will lay him flat just before the New Hampshire primary. I’ll go to Bauer’s campaign office and cough on everything. Phones and pens. Staplers and staffers. I even hatch a plan to infect the candidate himself; I’ll keep a pen in my mouth until Bauer drops by his offices to rally the troops. And when he does, I’ll approach him and ask for his autograph, handing him the pen from my flu-virus-incubating mouth.

That column also appeared on It was a little more than hate “speech” — the guy actually did try to give Gary Bauer the flu.

It’s racism you want?

Democrat Senator Robert Byrd: There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I’m going to use that word.

Democrat presidential candidate Jesse Jackson on Jews: Hymies

... and on New York City:


During his presidential campaign, Jesse Jackson was linked with (and refused to denounce) Louis Farrakhan, who has at times been linked with the Congressional Black Caucus, which also supported his Million Man March. Farrakhan is a man of the left who has been a harsh critic of President Bush.
Here’s Farrakhan on Jews:
Many of the Jews who owned the homes, the apartments in the black community, we considered them bloodsuckers because they took from our community and built their community but didn’t offer anything back to our community.

Farrakhan on Pope John Paul II: no good cracker

Farrakhan on white people: White people are potential humans - they haven’t evolved yet.

And again:

Murder and lying comes easy for white people.

Does it count as “hate” speech if you say you “hate” Republicans?

Howard Dean:
I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for . . .

Back to assassination wishes:

British pundit Charlie Brooker, during the presidency of George W. Bush:
John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr. — where are you now that we need you?

Actual elected officials have engaged in hate speech: Democrat Representative Pete Stark, speaking to a Republican: You think you are big enough to make me, you little wimp? Come on. Come over here and make me, I dare you. You little fruitcake.

Alabama Democratic congressional incumbent Earl Hilliard, on challenger, Artur Davis: Davis and the Jews, No Good for the Black Belt

And don't forget the book and movie made on the "assassination" of President George W. Bush WHILE he is still serving as our President.

Democrat ... thy name is hypocrisy.

hmmm, well first of all I would have to say that you are making the very incorrect assumption that I am a 'liberal' or democrat or for that matter that I fall neatly into any single political category. Second you are for some reason assuming that just because some 'liberal and/or democrat' said something that makes it OK for Coulter to use a homophobic slur to describe someone. As if to denounce someone for taking the easy road of simply calling someone else a name one is first required to denounce every other person who has ever taken that same path throughout history. The only times that that would even remotely work is if either one: Edwards had just used some slur to describe Coulter though that would certainly not be an excuse for Coulter to make her remarks but would provide you with a somewhat relevant quote to include instead of the long list of completely irrelevant ones that you have provided. Or two: if you view the world as black and white where everyone is either liberal/conservative, democrat/republican and so anyone who identifies themselves as democrat/liberal and makes a statement ends up speaking for that entire sector of the population though of course this wouldn't solve anything since there are just as many inappropriate quotes made by the right as the left and would just leave you in a stalemate.

And to say "what Ann Coulter may have been thinking of saying" clearly states that you haven't even acknowledged the simple fact that Coulter was very directly implying that Edwards is in fact a faggot. All one has to do is read her quote in my previous post and it becomes abundantly clear that that is what she is doing.

And just to make it clear, you came out to defend Coulter which means that you either agree with her or you really did misunderstand what she was implying. Like I said in the beginning - I am not a democrat and have myself never defended ANY of the people that you quoted. Maybe you should start with reanalyzing Coulter's comments and your response to them and make your position clear for anyone before trying to start list unrelated quotes and changing the subject of the conversation...

Looking forward to hearing from you.
