Don't Call Ann Coulter the Michael Moore of the Right
Human Events Online ^ | 20 June 2006 | Humberto Fontova

Posted on 06/19/2006 10:33:36 PM PDT by Aussie Dasher

The dentist cranks up his drill, revs it up and digs in. At first, no problem. The Novocain kicked in minutes ago. Half our head is numb. He asks us a question and we nod spastically. He asks another and we mumble like Steve Martin in “The Jerk” when reading Bernadette Peters’ goodbye note that fell in the bathtub.

Meanwhile his drill keeps buzzing. The buzz gets louder, harsher. Our jaw—and finally our whole head—start vibrating. The sadist in the face mask and rubber gloves drills deeper, deeper. Soon—“AAWH!” We wail in pain. He went too deep. Either that, or not enough Novocain kicked in.

Some say Ann Coulter has the same effect on liberals. She “hits a nerve,” they say. Thus they squeal and shriek every time she releases a book. If only liberals were so lucky. The fact is, when this woman cranks up her drill and goes after a liberal nerve, she makes Lawrence Olivier’s Dr. Szell in Marathon Man come across like Florence Nightingale.

And what fun to watch! “Is it safe?” she asks Alan Colmes with a malicious leer. “Is it safe?” she snickers to Katie Couric while putting on the gloves. “Is it safe?” she inquires of Matt Lauer while revving the dentist’s drill in his face. Compared to Coulter’s liberal victims, Dustin Hoffman while strapped into Dr. Szell’s torture chair, suffered about as much as Sen. Teddy Kennedy at a Club Med massage parlor that serves drinks.

Calling Ann Coulter the “Michael Moore of the right” has become commonplace. But the label insults Coulter more heinously than she insults any liberal, including John Murtha and the Jersey Girls, for which she’s been recently scolded by everyone from Matt Lauer to Bill O’Reilly.

In 2000 Michael Moore wrote a famous letter to Elian Gonzalez. Among the highlights: “your mother decided to kidnap you … in Cuba, you were in jeopardy of receiving free health care whenever you needed it, an excellent education in one of the few countries that has 100% literacy … your mother snatched you and put you on that death boat because she simply wanted to make more money. Your mother placed you in a situation where you were certain to die on the open seas and that is unconscionable. It was the ultimate form of child abuse.”

So let’s see here: in the Jersey Girls we have women who—yes, tragically—became widows, but also became brazen political partisans, media darlings and millionaires. They stepped into the media spotlight and started shooting at conservative targets. Fine. But someone should have notified them that this set them us as targets, too.

On the other we had a destitute single mom who grew up oppressed under a Stalinist system and who either drowned or was eaten alive by sharks attempting to free her son from the clutches of a regime that jailed more of it’s subjects than Hitler or Stalin’s and was busily brainwashing him.

Coulter refers to the media-lavished millionaires as “Harpies” and “Broads.” Moore trashes Elian’s martyred mother as a money-mad gold digger, a kidnapper and a child-murderer.

So naturally the media brand Coulter as the insensitive spewer of hateful invective, as in the New York Daily News’ “Coulter the Cruel.” Moore, on the other hand, according to Frank Rich of New York Times, is merely a “polemicist and powerful storyteller.”

Among many other crimes and horrors, “Florida’s Cubans” writes Moore in his book, “Downsize This,” are responsible for “sleaze and influence-peddling in American politics. … In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades … Cuban exiles are always present and involved.”

Such a blanket trashing of an entire ethnic group straddles the very dictionary definition of bigotry. Normally the entire Democratic Party would work itself into a collective froth against the villain who spouted such “hate-speech.” Normally every media outlet in the land would promptly and boastfully ban this villain from its airwaves, broadcasting the decision between film clips of fire-hoses in Selma, cross burnings, and torch-light Storm Troopers at Nuremberg.

Moore himself denounces Republicans as “people who hate … people who get up at six in the morning trying to figure out which minority group they’re going to screw today.”

But ah! In “Downsize This,” Moore was insulting Cuban-Americans (i.e. Republicans), you see. So all is forgiven. So instead of being pummeled as a bigot by the usual media, academic and governmental sniffers and snouters, Moore was feted as the guest of honor at the last Democratic National Convention, squatting his gargantuan gluteus in the very President’s Box alongside Jimmy Carter. Then waddling onto the stage at Boston’s Fleet Center to an ovation rivaling even the one that deafened Fidel Castro when he addressed Harvard Law School and Washington’s National Press Club in 1959. Though it was close.

“These Cuban exiles, for all their chest-thumping and terrorism, are really just a bunch of wimps. That’s right. Wimps,” Moore continues in his book. His smear refers to all Cubans who left Cuba but singles out the Bay of Pigs invaders for particular scorn. “Ex-Cubans with a yellow stripe down their backs,” he calls them, on top of “crybabies.”

During the Bay of Pigs days these men—all volunteers and overwhelmingly civilian—battled savagely against a Soviet-trained and Soviet-led force 10 times its size, inflicting casualties of 30-to-1. When the local CIA man realized they’d been betrayed by the best and brightest he pleaded with their commander to allow an evacuation. “We will not be EVACUATED!” yelled that commander into his radio from the clearly doomed beachhead. “We came here to FIGHT! This ends HERE!”

And so it did. Then came the real heroics. Living under a daily firing squad sentence for almost two years these men refused to sign the confession damning the “U.S. Imperialists” (the very nation, which for all they knew at the time, that had betrayed them on that beachhead.) Many spat on the document in front of their Communist torturers. “We will die with dignity!” responded their second-in-command Erneido Oliva to his furious Communist captors, again and again and again.

In blanket-trashing all Cubans who for some crazy reason rejected free-health care and universal literacy, Moore also trashes the longest serving political prisoners of the century. Cuban-Americans like Roberto Martin-Perez, Mario Chanes De Armas, Eusebio Penalver, Angel de Fana, who spent 30 years in Fidel Castro’s gulag. That’s more than three times as long a Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn and Natan Sharansky spent in Josef Stalin’s gulag.

“For months I was naked in a 6x4 foot cell,” recalls one prisoner. “That’s four-feet high, so you couldn’t stand. But I felt a great freedom inside myself. I refused to commit spiritual suicide.” Again, escaping their tortures would have been easy: simply sign “confessions.” They refused. Normally such men would have publishers, producers and documentary makers lining up for their stories. A&E would feature them every other month. NPR, “Frontline,” “60 Minutes” and the History Channel would beat down their doors.

Alas, these were Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s victims. Enough said.

In other words, the very things people like Moore, Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks say and write for free publicity, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s prisoners refused to sign to save their lives, or to end two decades of daily torture. Yet the Democrats’ pet walrus sneers at them from his Upper West Side pad as “wimps, cowards and crybabies.”

A guilt-stricken JFK finally ransomed back the Bay of Pigs prisoners. Hundreds of these promptly joined the U.S. Army and many volunteered for action in Vietnam. One of these was named Felix Sosa-Camejo.

By the day Mr. Sosa-Camejo died while rescuing a wounded comrade, he’d already been awarded 12 medals, including the Bronze Star, three Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts. I’ll quote from his official citation:

“On February 13, 1968, the lead platoon was hit by an enemy bunker complex manned by approximately forty North Vietnamese Regulars. Upon initial contact the point man was wounded and lay approximately 10 meters in front of the center bunker. The platoon was unable to move forward and extract the wounded man due to the heavy volume of fire being laid down from the enemy bunker complex.

“Captain Sosa-Camejo immediately moved into the firing line and directed the fire against the enemy bunker. With disregard for his safety, Captain Sosa-Camejo ran through the intense enemy fire and pulled the wounded point man to safety. After ensuring that the wounded man was receiving medical treatment, Captain Sosa-Camejo returned to the fire fight and again exposed himself to the intense enemy fire by single handedly assaulting the center bunker with grenades killing the two NVA soldiers manning the bunker. As he turned to assault the next bunker an NVA machine gun opened up and he was mortally wounded. Captain Sosa-Camejo’s valorous action and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.”

From his limousine Michael Moore sneers at this Cuban-American and his Band of Brothers as “wimps and crybabies with yellow lines down their back.”

Maybe I’m biased, but nothing—absolutely nothing—Ann Coulter has said about John Murtha or John Kerry or the Jersey Girls strikes me as remotely comparable in vileness, cowardice and rank stupidity as Michael Moore’s blanket calumny against some of the bravest men of the 20th Century.

I can do better than that whole article in a few words.

When Ann says or writes something, she can source her statements and back up her claims with facts.
Moore can't do that and gets sued for falsifying presentations.

The whole Coulter flap merely underscores the incredible hypocrisy of our leftist media and their still overwhelming dominance of it. Ultra lefties can say or do anything and get a free pass. A few liberal widows of 9/11 can get political and attempt to smear the CIC as he is trying to protect the country. But has anyone read anything at all negative about these women who are desperately trying to undermine the war effort? Of course not.

Michael Moore is a despicable, traitorous parasite who deprecates his own country as he makes millions off his treachery. According to Moore capitalism is evil, but not so evil that he won't move to Cuba or North Korea. Bah!! The more I think about the hypocrisy of libs, the madder I get.

I go back and forth on the subject of Coulter. In general, I love her patriotism and her biting criticism of the left, but I do have big problems with what I see as her inability to reason clearly (despite her claims to the contrary).

She says she can define liberalism in one word: godless. (I heard it in an interview, so please don't say she doesn't say that.)

I wish I could ask her to explain two things:

1. Liberation theology
2. Ayn Rand conservatives

In my experience, some of the most obnoxious and self-righteous leftists in America (and probably also South America) are Christian Leftists.

And in my experience, some of the most clear-thinking and truly conservative individuals I have known (who never get tripped up by the urge to "do good" but stick to the basics of conservative ideas), are atheist conservatives.

Memo To Ann Coulter: Who do you think invented socialism? Hint: it was NOT the secular left.

I don't call a bunch of people that support gay marriage, spew out Bush hatred as a matter of routine, and stand practially every single Christian principle in the bible, Christians.
I don't care if they are "priests" or not.
Some of the biggest con men, swindlers,vicious murderers and spewers of hate that he have had in New York have been "reverend" fathers.
A guy like "Reverend Jessie Jackson spews out more BDS hate than 99% of the people on the planet, and Jimmy Carter, is as evil as they come, despite professing to be a "Christan".
Ann is right. These people ARE Godless.

That piece of nonsense keep getting repeated by the DU/Kos trolls on this site, simply parroting out the loony left talking points.
How anyone can compare the fiercely patriotic Ann Coulter, to a Michael Moore that not only makes a viciously anti-American movies, but spent months traveling Europe spewing out as much aniti-American bile and stirring up as much anti-American hatred, is beyond me.

You're making the same mistake liberals make, defining religion to fit your own bias. The fact is, liberation theology pukes believe in god, and just because it's not your god, the fact is, it's a belief in god. And when Coulter claims that liberalism=godless she's very nearly as much an idiot as the very idiots she so beautifully condemns for their obvious idiocy.

Actually, I withdraw the word "invented". Socialism was probably invented by the Greeks.

Nonsense.
Christianity is Christianity.
There is no "buts" of "ifs" about it.
I cannot see any definition of Christianity that come anywhere near closer to Jessie Jackson's or Jimmy Carter's constant spewing out of Bush hate.
I happen to know my bible.
If you think constantly spewing out vicious hate is Christianity, you have no idea what Christianity is.

There ya go.
Ann Coulter's book is called "Godless", not "godless".
Now if you have read your bible, you will know that one and only God himself got angry with the Israelites, when they started worshiping your kinds of "gods" who's creed consists of debauchery, drunkenness, and every kind of crime known to man.
Jessie Jackson, screwing women outside his marriage and actually furthering a child with another woman while married, while at the same time, practically every word that comes out of his mouth is hate, is not part of any Christianity I know.

I never said anything about Jackson or Carter. I have no idea about them personally. But there are plenty of liberal Christians.

And even forgetting the word liberal for a moment, let me ask you this:

If George Bush were an Ayn Rand conservative instead of an evangelical conservative, do you think the federal budget would be smaller or larger than it is right now?

I don't care how conservative evangelicals want to be, the fact is they are lured by the same self-sacrifice garbage that the left is. Although they are a million times more worthy than the leftists, as individuals and as a group, the fact is, they still have this incredible weakness for the self-sacrifice myth, which is easily exploited, even with the best of intentions. As in the case of W.

I have to agree it is stunning to be told there is anything to be compared about Ann and Mikey.

Considering what has been said about the US, President Bush and conservatives in general over these past many years, by these leftist hate America most crowd, it is strange to be told conservatism and conservatives are to turn the other cheek. It is as though there is a small segment of moderates whose only concern is maintaining their health care and social security and protected gated communities.

They forget what it was that allowed the Vietnam syndrome to take hold and paralyze the national spine, even though these twisted liberals are alllllll about reenacting that quagmire of their own creation.

A lot of nice words in the article but when all is said and done, I see little Coulter does to further the conservative cause. She makes matters worse when she puts people into the position of having to defend her classless style.

Sorry, but the conservative cause does not have to be furthered in the way she attempts to do. Her words are nothing more than emotions coming out. Liberals are the people that do and say things based on emotions. I prefer a more mature approach to things and especially not in a manner designed to sell books.

Now it's off my chest.

By the way, my choice of what words to capitalize has no bearing on the validity of my argument. And if coulter says god must be capitalized (i'm not saying she does say that, but it seems you're implying that) then she's a bigger idiot than i thought.

Don't Call Ann Coulter the Michael Moore of the Right

While the treatise on Moore vs. Cuban-Amercians is interesting, the premise of the article's title is much simpler to support -- regardless of one thinks of her bombastic, frequently over-the-top style, Coulter doen't make things up and pass them off as fact. From that view, she'll never sink to Moore's level, no matter how crude or caustic her opinion statements become.

Where are they at?
Name any well known liberals who are REALLY Christians (that is, for example, don't spew out Bush hate as a matter of routine). The Jimmy Carters of the world need not apply.


"If George Bush were an Ayn Rand conservative instead of an evangelical conservative, do you think the federal budget would be smaller or larger than it is right now? "

Exactly what does Ayn Rand or budget deficits got to do with Christianity?
Or Ann Coullter calling liberals "Godless"?

"jackson's the only "man of god" who committed adultery?"

Plenty of "men of god", with small "g" have committed adultery, sure.
But they sure were not true men of God, with a big "G".
There is a difference.
Jessie Jackson not only screw other women routinely, like his leader BK Klinton, its hard to go for even one month without hearing some more vicious Bush hate coming from this sucker.
Is Jessie Jackson a Christian? Not a chance.

Obviously you've never read Ayn Rand. By the way, I am not a libertarian or an objectivist. I just use Ayn Rand as an example to show how stupid is the argument that the only good conservative is a capital-G God conservative.

By the way, Islamic fundamentalists are ALL capital-G God conservatives. And they are all socialists.

And you can scream till you're blue in the face that their capital-G God doesn't match the text of your capital-G God book, and they'll scream back that you're capital-G God doesn't match their capital-G God book.

For me, I prefer to judge people on their behavior. Christians are much better behaved than Moslems. That goes without saying. But it doesn't mean they are fundamentally less inclined to support socialism, or even, for that matter, fundamentally more conservative than any other group. Some Christians are conservative and some conservatives are Christian.

But to make the argument as lower-case-c coulter does that liberalism=godless, is, as I've already said, capital-I Idiocy.

Moore himself denounces Republicans as “people who hate … people who get up at six in the morning trying to figure out which minority group they’re going to screw today.”

Dammit, he found me out! Today I woke up and decided to screw Cameroon Highlanders.
(hmm, maybe I'll switch to Botswana Basarwaians. They're always an easy mark)

BTW Mikey, I get up at five, not six.

She doesn't.
The loony left can do what they like.


"By the way, my choice of what words to capitalize has no bearing on the validity of my argument"

It does.
It's the crux of the matter.
There are "gods" for those engaging in drunkenness, adulterers, purveyors of hate etc, and then there is the one true Christian God.


"And if coulter says god must be capitalized (i'm not saying she does say that, but it seems you're implying that) then she's a bigger idiot than i thought."

Naaaaah.
For that, you gotta look in the mirror.

"Obviously you've never read Ayn Rand"

I have read and know the Bible. That's what counts.
Ayn Rand is irrelevant.
He may be your god, he isn't mine.

"I just use Ayn Rand as an example to show how stupid is the argument that the only good conservative is a capital-G God conservative"


You have succeeded in doing the exact opposite of that, by porbing even more how really stupid the liberals are.


" and they'll scream back that you're capital-G God doesn't match their capital-G God book"

Liberals have been screaming anti-Chrsitian invective for so long (just listen to the drive-by media), that its become totally boring.
We don't even hear thenm when they scream anymore.

"For me, I prefer to judge people on their behavior"

That is why liberals liberals are Godless.
They are the biggest Bush-haters haters on the planet. They hate President Bush even more than the worst Al Quaeda psycho.

"But to make the argument as lower-case-c coulter does that liberalism=godless, is, as I've already said, capital-I Idiocy."

Look who's talking.

"By the way, Islamic fundamentalists are ALL capital-G God conservatives. And they are all socialists"

Zarqawi is/was a socialist?
Who knew?
Are you sure you took your meds this morning?

Bernadette Peters is an actress, singer, and dancer. She gets the best roles on Broadway in any show she feels like starring in. Her usual film role is a light-headed ditz, rather like many of Madeleine Kahn's parts, but like the late Ms. Kahn, those are just blow-off turns for a major talent.

She's very pretty, too, especially for a lady in her 50's.

"A lot of nice words in the article but when all is said and done, I see little Coulter does to further the conservative cause"

Just by hitting against the RATS campaign tactic of using tragedy victims as attack dogs and human shields alone, Ann Coullter has done conservatives and Republicans a hell of a lot of good.
Sh has in effect effectively taken down the most potent weapon the policy challenged RATS have been using.

"Her words are nothing more than emotions coming out."

You obviously haven't read the book. You sound like one if those clowns that regularly post anti-conservative bile at Amazon.com

Can you please explain to me what hating President Bush and believing in God have to do with one another? I really hesitate to go down that path!

If you need me to explain that to you, then you obviously know nothing about Christianity.
