Ann Coulter calls John Edwards "Faggot"
UPI ^

Posted on 03/03/2007 5:23:31 AM PST by Billy Jacks blog

Best-selling right-wing author Ann Coulter, speaking to a conservative audience in Washington Friday, called former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., a "faggot."

Coulter was a featured speaker at the 34th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Following her prepared remarks, televised on C-Span, Coulter was asked to talk about Edwards.

"It turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm kind of at an impasse -- I can't really talk about Edwards," she said.

Hey Howard Hitler..You *still* stink of
death camp..right through the TV screen.

Pretty funny about you calling for the
denouncing of Coulter calling Edwards
a Nancy Boy, saying it is below the
belt, considering for the last few
years, *you* have been going around
trying incite racial hatred against
Republicans to every ethnic group
you rant in front of....Nazi Boy!

I go back and forth on Ann Coulter. These kind of comments are completely unnecessary and make conservatives look like idiots, but it's not as if the other guys are going to like us any better if she doesn't say these things. I do understand irony, but she is just way over the top sometimes. Then again, she is out there taking the arrows. And she's certainly no worse than James Carville.

I am a big fan of Ann's and have never really had a problem with her controversial pronouncements before. Now she's talking like a 14 year old boy. I used to be one myself so I know whereof I speak. I think we should expect a little more from adult discourse. Especially public adult discourse. I have no doubt she will be cheered on by many here. More's the pity.

Ann's schtick has gotten old. She is desperate for attention and headlines and lobs bombs solely because they get her attention. For all I know she could be an unscrupulous lib out to make conservatives look bad and making a fortune doing it.

She obviously knew that she knew she was going to make the puppets dance with this comment.

I think she just gets a kick out of pissing off the ultra-sensitive left. All of the usual suspects come out from under their rocks with righteous indignation.

Where is the righteous indignation being reported on the networks when there are rallies and public figures calling Bush the "Worlds Biggest Terrorist", "Liar and Murderer", ad infinitum?

That should be Ann's next question when she gets interviewed about her inference about Edwards. She infers that he's a sissy, (While I don't think he's gay, he sure fits the sterotype with the 400 pound wife and the fastidious grooming habits!)

This comment will have no effect on my relationship with Ann, she's funny like a guy and looks like a woman, if I can get her to start watching football there will be a future for us.

I don't know if it makes us seem like idiots. To use the other side's weapons, she didn't actually call Breck girl a faggot.

Besides, the end justifies the means for the Lib/Commie Democrats so any bombs our side throws against them will hardly elicit any complaints from me. Everything is permissible against the President and Cheney -- including murder. Just listen to Huffpo or Randi Rhodes.

Oh yeah, and I suppose it's all right that Edwards tried to use the fact that Cheney has a lesbian daughter against him in their debate a few years ago.

She didn't call Edwards "a fagot." The Drive Bys/MSM can't read a whole sentence. The sentence is NOT what the headline said.

My grandfather always told me to make one error every year on my Income Tax Form. The logic was that if you were audited there would be something there for them to find so they wouldn't dig and dig and dig to prove that the audit wasn't a waste of time.

Ann Coulter is our Tax Form Error.

She keeps the moonbats busy howling at the moon. :-)

This will be an attempt by MSM to marginalize Ann C. This is the risk Ann takes when she comes up with this stuff. The gamble is, is she too accepted as a pundit to be completely shut out, or can she ride this out? We all know that MSM will try to make her out as an extreme idiologue, but will it stick?

The wording: unfortunate.
The lack of tact: not surprising.
The publicity: PRICELESS!

Brittish Foods:

Simply put, faggots are a type of meatball dish served in a rich gravy. Originating in Wales, a typical recipe includes minced pork, pig's heart, lites (lungs), liver, spleen and other offal, seasoned with onions, herbs, salt and pepper and thickened up with breadcrumbs. As if this weren't enough, they are then wrapped in part of the pig's stomach lining (caul) - this gives them the appearance of having been covered in a fatty net.

Breck Girl, it seems, is a meatball.

Not really. She phrased it to appear to not say it, but by doing what she did, she was saying it. In her comments, her tongue in cheek regret is she would have to enter rehab if she said it. Well, she said it by saying she can't say it. It would be the same as saying I was going to have a few words to say about black people but because you would be charged with a hate crime if I referred to them as the N word.......

Ann just does it for fun. She's declared war on both political correctness and wimpiness.

It's like she's declaring, "See how easy it is to push these people's buttons? See how easy it is to set them off on a hypersensitive hysterical tizzy? What a bunch of babies "

That's what I see in this.

It was a joke and I laughed when I read it. Oh well. I'm still waiting for Hillary to apologize for her vast right wing conspiracy comment because of her belief that her husband wouldn't dare be cheating on her with an intern in the oral office. Looks like a lot of people are going to be waiting for things that aren't going to happen.

For decades the left-liberals have screamed invective as their standard mode of discourse; "Bigot!" "Racist" "War monger!" "Murderer!" "Hitler!"

Immediately the substance of the matter is lost as the target of their abuse shifts to defending himself against the bastards' billingsgate.

Meanwhile, the left moves on to another "issue" and more name calling.

Good for Ms Coulter!

I've actually found myself wondering if Coulter is a liberal agent provocateur. The problem is that satire is truly dead -- you can't say anything so comically over the top that some group of folks won't line up to applaud it.

This is to what she was referring--

'Grey's' star in counseling for gay slur

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Actor Isaiah Washington has entered a treatment program as part of an effort to atone for a gay slur against a "Grey's Anatomy" co-star in Hollywood.

"With the support of my family and friends, I have begun counseling," the actor said in a statement Wednesday. "I regard this as a necessary step toward understanding why I did what I did and making sure it never happens again."

Washington reportedly agreed to undergo a psychological assessment following discussions with ABC executives about his denial at the Golden Globe awards that he had called co-star T.R. Knight a "faggot," Eonline.com said.

"Grey's" creator Shonda Rhimes said in a statement that Washington's use of "such a disturbing word" insulted gays and lesbians and "anyone who has ever struggled for respect in a world that is not always accepting of difference."

Washington publicly apologized, saying he could he could no longer deny that he had issues he needed to face.

His decision to enter treatment may directly relate to his future on "Grey's Anatomy," Eonline.com said. The Walt Disney Co., ABC's parent company, has a corporate nondiscrimination policy that could provide for dismissing the actor from the show, Eonline.com said.

Egregious insults or ad hominem attacks are unnecessary and counter productive as a means of expressing conservative values and policies.

Bad manners is part of the problem we should be trying to remedy rather than encourage.

She actually does not know whether Edwards is a homosexual. All she knows is her own need to feed her image as an iconoclast and the needs of those who only feel whole when they are demeaning others for real or imaginary sins.

Can you imagine President Ronald Reagan making a similar public statement? That should be the test for cheap shots.

Ann Coulter is completely idiotic. Instead of the great speeches by a couple of GOP candidates being the news it's Ann Coulter. Take a look at john edwards campaign website. They are calling for "Coulter Cash" donations.

---

Friday afternoon, Republican mouthpiece Ann Coulter brought hate-speech politics to a new low.

This video shows Coulter addressing the American Conservative Union's Political Action Conference, March, 2, 2007 in Washington, D.C.

We must show that inflaming prejudice to attack progressive leaders will only backfire.

Can you help us raise $100,000 in "Coulter Cash" this week to keep this campaign charging ahead and fight back against the politics of bigotry?

https://johnedwards.com/action/contribute/coulter

I'm Glad to see other conservatives stepping up to the plate to rightfully criticize Coulter's unhinged comment.
