Conservative pundit Ann Coulter believes that the countrys growing interest in soccer fueled by Team USAs success in the 2014 World Cup - is a sure sign of America's moral decay.
Coulters reasons for hating soccer include that individual achievement is not a big factor, it isnt rough enough, and the fact that it's foreign.
As a conservative she argued that liberals only love soccer - and the metric system - because they're both 'European.'

'I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer. One can only hope that, in addition to learning English, these new Americans will drop their soccer fetish with time.'
OK, I sort of liked Ann Coulter until this rant. Not only my great-grandfather, but 8 times back great-grandfather was born here and his sons fought in the Revolutionary War. I’ve loved soccer my ENTIRE LIFE and I’m 50. Ann went off her rocker on this one. Clearly.
I really don’t care one way or the other. But I do consider Soccer Mania around the world (not in this country, per s) nothing but Bread and Circuses, myself.
It’s the one world sport.
OH, and if Ann doesn’t think it’s “rough enough” she’s never watched a game in her life. Just in this World Cup we’ve seen broken and/or bloody noses, men carried off the pitch on stretchers...and even a vicious bite from nutcase Louis Suarez!
Oh good grief she’s an idiot. Watching athletes in a sport that some find fun to watch makes you a LibTard? How about hockey. Does that make you Canadian? Pro football traces it’s beginnings to England. A love for Track and Field makes you Greek?
Ann lost her relevancy, and marbles, a very long time ago.
Did she leave out roundabouts?
here here Ann.
you’ve lost me of late, but you are reenergizing me to you with your great Soccer rant.
Soccer is one of the plans of the left to make us the third world or euro trash country they envision in America.
truth be known there are more concussions with soccer but they are on the case of the NFL about them. more lies like global warming and other leftist plots(plotz).
Yes, she’s gone off the rails. Just what “Republicans” need.
The tranny is kind of wrong. There is individual achievement in soccer, for example the golden boot. Also, individual soccer players sign their contract and play for their own career, except for in the World Cup, which is for the country.
I think the tranny is right on that soccer is boring and mostly non white, but it has high individual achievement.
The tranny’s argument is like saying quarterbacks are socialists because they pass the ball around.
no....bone smuggling makes you Greek.
Soccer bites the big one.
While I agree that soccer sucks, I think Ann is losing a grip.
Roundabouts are awesome, especially in a Miata lol.
The ones here in Indy have that nice sinusoidal profile curbing just like on race tracks.
Exactly. Put Annie out there and see if she thinks it’s “rough enough”.
Tongue in cheek criticism is Coulter’s stock in trade.
Ann has gone looney on this one. I am a retired football player, current football coach, who happens to have been blessed with daughters, one of which is a soccer freak. I like soccer now that I understand it. Yes, we make fun of the rolling around on the ground to prompt a yellow card.
Hey Ann, if you hate the metric system so much, you may want to consider give up our monetary system - it’s based on the metric system (base 10 instead of 12). you can trade stones and beads for you wants and needs.....
I don’t care how much I get flamed for this, but I agree with Ann on this point.
It might not be “moral decay”, but it certainly is cultural decay.
America sports are baseball and gridiron football.
“Multicultural” sports include soccer.
Most of what Ann says is tongue in cheek, heck the woman dates liberals for crying out loud.
I’m 10th generation American. Scots-Irish ancestry. Also 10th generation military. Played soccer from 7th grade to age 34 when I had to stop due to a service connected back injury. I also played football, basketball, baseball, swam and surfed competitively. All of those sports are thoroughly American.
Ann is an irrelevant hack. I hope the skinny bitch falls through her ass and hangs herself.
