Ann Coulter Banned in New Jersey?

Two New Jersey Democrats are pushing to have Ann Coulter's new book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," banned from all bookstores in their state because she criticized four 9/11 widows known as "the Jersey Girls."

In a joint press release issued Friday, New Jersey Assemblywomen Joan Quigley and Linda Stender say they want New Jersey retailers to "ban the sale of [Coulter's] book throughout the state."

"Ann Coulter's criticism of 9-11 widows, whose only desire since the attacks have been to repair their shattered lives and protect other families from the horrors they have experienced, is motivated purely by petty greed and hate," the two Democrats complained.

"Coulter's vicious characterizations and remarks are motivated by greed and her desire to sell books . . . She is a leech trying to turn a profit off perverting the suffering of others."

Quigley and Stender conclude:

"No one in New Jersey should buy this book and allow Ann Coulter to profit from her hate-mongering. We are asking New Jersey retailers statewide to stand with us and express their outrage by refusing to carry or sell copies of Coulter's book. Her hate-filled attacks on our 9-11 widows has no place on New Jersey bookshelves."

How about an old fashioned book burning?

These guys love free speech so long as it is their free speech.

Not only does Coulter receive great publicity, she also manages to show the world just how stupid Jersey Democrats really are.

These morons are pushing me to buy not one but two of this book.

I normally just go to the library, but stupid liberals who have decided to lie are becoming even more moronic.

1) The libs LIE and prove Coulter right by cover these four women under the umbrella of all 9-11 widows. LIE and make people think Coulter is talking about all rather than four.

2) The libs prove Coulter right by giving a microphone to anti-American activist Michael Berg who is so nuts that his son chose to go to Iraq rather than stay at home and listen to his father rant.

Oh, it will generate lots of venom for the monsters who live on the left, but it does violate the right of free speech.

They scream "Freedom of the Press" and "First Amendment" right up till the time someone comes out with something they disagree with. Then it is ok to play the hypocrite, just to prevent people from getting another view other than their own.

Sorry you Marxist trash. You lose again.

Tasteless as Ms. Coulter's comments are, if Hustler's mock interview of Jerry Falwell is "free speech," so is Ms. Coulter's screed.

If she slandered someone, than she is open to a civil suit. Censorship isn't the answer

Well now really people....just what can you expect from Jersey???

They had a gay Governor that was married and had a child, and then wrote a book about going up and down the Parkway to find sex with other men....and was suppost to have gone with alot of women to have sex so he didn't feel so bad about his situation....

And now they have a Governor that 'bought' his way into the Governorship....he isn't much better....

And what is the state motto????

I can understand that the Jersey democRATS are trashy as ever.....

Seems a rough equivalent to Hitler's book burnings.

Of course, the left is inherently fascist.

Hmmm...sounds like pot, kettle, black to me. The liberals are infamous for their own attacks and inuendo based on nothing less than hearsay and statements conoured up by their own vain ambitions.

If you read carefully what Coulter is saying, she uses that example as this very type of thing, the liberals trotting out emotionally charged and distraught individuals to procaim their perverted version of events in the hopes that no on will assail their statements becuase of their "emotional" situation.

Wrong.

A lie is a lie is a lie...no matter who you get to spout it for you. That's what I take from Coulters reference, not necessarily an abject attack on those women themselves, but more as an example of the pathetic lengths the liberals will go to to use people. Witness the Sindee Ali-Sheehan espisode.

A slightly more applicable analogy,

Did these politictians scream for censorship when Ward Churchill referred to these ladies' husbands as "little Eichmanns?"

I didn't think so.

My analogy is lifted directly from a Supreme Court case, Fallwell v. Hustler Magazine.

If NJ tries this, they'll get slapped by the Third Circuit pretty hard. I doubt if it'd even make it to the Supreme Court.

Give it time. Darwin Central will try (unsuccessfully, I might add) to get her banned from FR too.

Ann has a way of separating the wheat from the chaff -- and the true conservatives from those that are just merely the hangers-on and moochers living off the benefits of conservatism.

I can't believe I'm hearing this idiocy from United States elected officials...These two are talking like Nazis! FWIW, in the late '30's New Jersey was a major locus of American Nazi activity, the Bund had a summer camp there....They need to be censured, and lectured on free speech!

An observation, FWIW:

To most people, "ban" suggests the government prohibiting something. That's not what these liberal gals are seeking:
"We are asking New Jersey retailers statewide to stand with us and express their outrage by refusing to carry or sell copies of Coulter's book."

Let's not confuse boycotting something with banning something, as Lefties often do.

It's New Jersey. I've lived here for nearly 30 years and no one I know says joisey.

"Jersey" is a sweater, an island off Britain or a breed of cow. New Jersey is a state.

Maybe they should be thinking about banning that book. Or at least limiting it to adult book stores.

Oh My ..... wouldn't public book burnings provide more entertainment value? After all, we don't want books on our library shelves if they slander certain people or make them feel bad. Nor do we want citizens to be able to go and buy such books. Isn't censorship one of the values we have men fighting for in Iraq and Afghanistan?

If I was a book store owner in New Jersey I would use this as a sales promotion. I would have a big banner in the window saying, banned in Jersey, and a big supply of Ann's books below.

Someone should send these two women a copy of the Constitution with the First Amendment highlighted for them.

Did I say she did? I said if she did, then she is subject to a civil suit, not censorship. Under Falwell v. Hustler, it's dubious this was even slander - though it is crass, tasteless, and an embarassment to Ms. Coulter.

In the interests of disclosure, however, I should mention that I am not a fan of Coulter's. Not since I saw her lose a debate last year to Janet Reno - and Reno wasn't exactly a master debater either. While Reno had nothing but platitudes, those platitudes at least formed a coherent argument. Coulter had only insults, some of which made the entire audience gasp.
