"At the risk of further de-contextualization, here are some of Coulter's past comments:"
"RISK"? Did you say "RISK"? (That's like a weather forecaster predicting a "risk" that skies will get darker tonight than they were at noon today!) How about more like, "With the DELIBERATE CERTAINTY of further de-contextualization ..."????
- To a disabled Vietnam vet: "People like you caused us to lose that war."
A statement like this just sitting by itself looks pretty bad, all right. That's why de-contextualization is a favorite tactic of slimeball mud-slingers everywhere. Coulter's words were no doubt said to the face of a fellow guest on some show who fully deserved it! Someone like Ron Kovic, a longtime favorite darling of the media and the Official Poster Boy for anti-war fervor. For example, the media trotted him out a ton back in 1990 as part of a massive Liberal effort to prevent Bush Sr. from saving Kuwait.
- "Anorexics never have boyfriends."
Again, out of context this makes her look cold and cruel. The slimeball who quoted this is no doubt depending on the fact that virtually all of his/her audience has never seen a photo of Coulter from head to toe. If they had, they would figure out in an instant that she is referring to herself. Most likely her quote was in response to the question, "Ann, do you have a boyfriend?"
The rest of these statements are also out of context, some of them extremely so. Do note that on the website this came from, the author is not named. Slime!
Of course, Ann doesn't really need us to defend her. Her mighty power with the pen is her own best defense!
To a disabled Vietnam vet: "People like you caused us to lose that war."
Does anyone recall the exact circumstances of this quote?
