Ann Coulter Receives Congressional Letter
Newsmax ^ | 06-10-06 | WestVirginiaRebel

Posted on 06/10/2006 2:46:32 PM PDT by WestVirginiaRebel

Ann Coulter criticized four of the women whose husbands died on 9/11, and now a congressmen from the New York/New Jersey area has written a scathing letter-signed by nearly two dozen other congressmen-to the author.

In Coulter's new book "Godless: The Curch of Liberalism," she wrote, "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much," and that the four were "reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by giref-arazzis."

In response, House Democrats from Long Island and New York City have signed their names to a letter drafted by Rep. Steve Israeil (D-Hungtington) demanding that Coulter apologize.

Is what's-his-name getting a letter from them about his crack about shooting Bush between the eyes (at a College Commencement, no less)?

How about Ward Churchill for calling the WTC victims "Little Eichmans" and "Innocent? Hardly?"

How bout Bill Maher saying that Laura Bush is like Hitler's dog?

Or Turbin Durbin for comparing our troops to Nazis, etc?

Michael Moore surely deserves one of these letters.

Is Dan Rather getting one of these letters for...how about Kerry for...never mind.

I don't know how I got into this sub-thread, but Ann's remarks were beyond the pale and akin to something Ted Rall would say.

She doesn't need to go down to that level but it seems she revels in it, like the KosKids do.

B.S. The difference between Ann and scum like Ted Rall is that Ann told the truth about these women and what their agenda was. She's right-being a victim does not give you an excuse to mouth off whacky, idiotic statements. Cindy Sheehan and Michael Berg also suffered terrible losses; should we stop calling them whackjobs for denigrating their sons' memories?

Democrats are really hung up on apologies -- it seems every time I turn around, they are demanding an apology from somebody for something. What the heck is up with those people? Like most of us, I'm offended plenty of times every day by someone or something, but it just never occurs to me to expect or even to ask for an apology. Life goes on -- democrats, get over it and grow up! :)

She should use a non-apology apology to tear them a new one. What do these idioits hope to accomplish, anyway? All they're doing is giving Anne free publicity. I predict massive sales for this book because of all the hand-wringing.

When these people ridicule Ann Coulter the question we should ask of them is, there were more than 2,000 widows,widowers,and orphans from 9/11 why did we only hear from four of them?....or there are over 2,000 grieving parents of soldiers killed in Iraq, why did we hear only from Cynthia Sheehan?

Why do we only hear from Michael Berg and never from the parents and spouses of the four contractors hung on that bridge?

Why is Patches Kennedy given a free ride as a victim of drugs and Rush Limbough condemned?

I am sure we can carry on adding to the list.

I agree with William Butler Yeats;

"I hate journalists. There is nothing in them but tittering jeering emptiness.(Which sums up Fox News Watch) They have all made what Dante calls the Great Refusal. The shallowest people on the ridge of the earth."

Ann is not PC and Ann is also 100% correct. Ann for President!

Actually, I was hoping that President Bush would have nominated her to the Supreme Court, if for no other reason than to watch the dems' heads explode! That would have been so much fun!

"I remember the 'Jersey Girls' applauding the 'Rats on the 9/11 Commission."

Sure, and the Democrats are returning the favor. Fact is, these four women are less than a tiny fraction of the people effected by the September 11th attacks. And the news media has no business holding these four up as representatives of all of the families who lost someone in those attacks.

And as I said before, Hillary owes the Jersey Girls for distracting attention from the failures of her husband's administration.

Now, lets get serious: These Nazis have brass balls; applying pressure -- as congressmen -- as to what, or what not, one citizen may say to another. F**K them.

Also, it would seem to me that they have violated some sort of public policy, and or, committed some sort of public offense that would warrant -- at the least -- a reprimand.

Perhaps a petition of our own is in order!

In Ann's wildest dreams could the liberals be this stupid?

The book is released and the liberals go a bit nuts. That was expected. She threw down the gauntlet on the Jersey Girls and called them for who they are: political opportunists using the deaths of their loved ones as a shield from criticism.

Zaraqawi is killed and the Drive-By Media proves Ann's point by bringing out Cindy Sheehan, Mike Berg--'victims' that we should not respond to because they lost a loved one--to smear our military and minimize the death of one big cockroach to attack Bush. Murtha is a war 'hero', so we cannot criticize him when he smears out marines and our war efforts. And now we have liberal Democrats in Congress demanding apologies on the House floor and in official letters.

Obviously, she will not (and should not) apologize for speaking the truth about these hypocritical liberal demagogues.

She hit a grand slam with this book. Truth hurts and the liberals cannot take it.

Ann, thank you. :-)

I am a 100% Constitutionalist Conservative

That's great. So shouldn't everyone be that believes in limited government. That merely identifies you as someone who sees a good deal and has latched onto it. That alone doesn't make you a true conservative.

I'm pro-life

As an evolutionist, on what basis are you pro-life? There is no morality associated with Darwinism, only survivalism at both the exploitation and expense of others. Who are your lesses, and those not sufficiently evolved to your liking? Exterminate your competition before it exterminates you, right? You're the "enlightened" evolutionist: and so was Margaret Sanger -- who was pro-life for what she considered to be the worthy and the elite only. How about you?

there's nothing in the Constitution that involves evolution.

I agree. Nothing to do with the founding of this nation either, and a difference in worldviews whose outcomes are poles apart.

Political thought borne from application of Darwinist Huxleyism, while feigning political legitimacy as it masquerades as science is what gives rise to the Hilters, the PolPot's, and the Stalins -- and the Margaret Sangers. Indeed, the premise of evolution has no legitimacy in either conservatism or in science: science, that is, which is studied in the pursuit of truth.

I accept the evidence for evolution

Then you have not studied the "evidence" very closely. A creationist studies all evidence and ignores none. An evolutionist studies only what he thinks he can twist to fit his model and ignores what doesn't. The evolutionist is self-deceived. True conservatives will not allow themselves to be deceived in this way.

And as an evolutionist, that's where she's talking to you.

Ann will tear it up. If liberals are demanding an apology, let's begin by their apologizing for libeling Bush as Hitler and defending the Chief Rapist Clinton to the hilt. How's that for an apology? I won't hold my breath waiting for the liberals to issue one.

If we condone Ann Coulter's antics then our condemnation of Ted Rall's antics sounds quite hollow.

Ted Rall's cartoon (and yes I have seen it ) specifically targets all the 9/11 Widows.

AC's antics, target 4 particular women--the aforementioned "jersey girls."

Your comparison of the two seems quite dishonest to this reader as you make no mention of these facts.

When it comes to making an intellectual argument liberals remind me of adolescent girls full of hysterics. You try to make a cogent point against their position and they respond with invective. Gee, you don't really need to take these people seriously. Nah-uh. And oh, in the liberals' congressional letter, they didn't even address the substance of Ann's observations about the Jersey Girls. Its enough you hurt liberals' feelings to get them to attack you. But Ann's a big girl and can take their childish crying.

As an evolutionist, on what basis are you pro-life?There is no morality associated with Darwinism, only survivalism at both the exploitation and expense of others.

You mean the exploitation and expense of other species. Not other individuals. Even Christians believe that humans come before other animals.

It's not "every individual for himself." That is a misstatement of what evolution is.

Animals that live in groups have rules that each animal must live by. Animals that don't live by the rules are punished or exiled. Surely you know this.

My worldview, by the way, is not based on a scientific theory anyway. Science will only take you so far.

My worldview is based on Theravada Buddhism, which I believe best helps me prepare my soul for the afterlife. And science doesn't mean squat to my immortal soul or my belief in God.

Who are your lesses, and those not sufficiently evolved to your liking?

Evolution is not teleogical, there is no physical "goal". Everyone is evolved as much as they are.

Exterminate your competition before it exterminates you, right?

Again, my "competition" is not human. Only other species that might pose a danger to me are.

You're the "enlightened" evolutionist: and so was Margaret Sanger -- who was pro-life for what she considered to be the worthy and the elite only. How about you?

No, I am not a bigot. Racism is not enlightening.

A creationist studies all evidence and ignores none.

I've yet to see any proof of that. I've seen over and over again creationists who refuse to read anything that is not creationist literature.

I just saw Ann on Fox News talking to John Kasich. Poor John intended to criticize Ann's book - and further used his wife's comments to downplay the book. Unfortunately, neither had read the book. Ann was gentle in pointing out that they were passing judgment on what she had written without even having read it.

She could have easily ripped him a new one – and he would have deserved it.

They don't like what she said (because it's true), so their response is to give her another round of free publicity and make her rich as her books continue to sell?

Hey, I'm sure Ann is loving it but it proves what morons these Democrats are. Whatever mileage they get out of this in an election year among their own constituents, is far outweighed by what Ann gets. Money and a forum to tell the American people how they've been using "victims" to sell their propaganda unchallenged.

They don't know when to shut up.
