Coulter: 'I Don't Think of It As a Murder'
Little Green Footballs ^ | June 22, 2009 | Little Green Footballs

Posted on 06/23/2009 6:02:57 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Even Bill O’Reilly (who has been pretty cold-blooded about the murder of Dr. George Tiller) seems a little taken aback when Ann Coulter says, “I don’t think of it as a murder ... I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don’t believe in imposing my morality on others.”

And: “If you don’t believe in shooting abortionists, don’t shoot an abortionist.” And: “That’s why liberals are so hysterical about this, because generally they’re on the pro-death side ... in this one case, they’re finally against someone dying, a man responsible for killing 60,000 babies.”

Ridicule of a behavior is one of the effective tools society uses to change that behavior.If more people came to understand and ridicule the slogans of the baby-killers we might return the nation to sanity.

The only effective antidote to the social power gained by liberals (by means of their being supercilious) is good hard laughter.

When everyone is pointing and laughing, their power to dominate through social intimidation is broken.

Hence their ever-present mantra, "That's NOT FUNNY!"

Cheers!

You’re correct. If Ann was a fat bald headed 65 year old, these folks would not be trying to tell you that she is being “sarcastic” and “humorous.”

"Let me be more clear, Coulter is an idiot."

Wowwwwwww, you must be one of those "reeeeaaal" conservatives that is sooooooo conservative and sooooooo smart that people like Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Ronald Reagan and others are seen as "idiots" when compared to you.
We are lucky to have you here sir.

Wow... and common sense is seen as ignorance.

The world is upside down when bozo’s can’t see that a guy who kills 60,000 humans is no more worthy than Hitler. The problem is, what Tiller did had the full faith and blessing of the United States government.

Coulter is playing them, though. We should never resort to murder because we are a nation of laws, but at what point does the government become so unjust that we have to stand for the truth? Do we wait until they come for us?

Wow, do you hate Old White Guys like Judge Sotomayer does?

If the bald, fat 65 year old was in demand as much as Ann, with the same number of best selling Conservative books as Ann, he would be quoted on Free Republic on a regular basis.

I admire Ann for her intelligent wit. She knows the enemy, and she is capable of shining the light on their idiocy with every word she utters.

Just to be clear, when I was attending CPAC three years ago, Ann was taken off the Speakers List because of her comments about the Silk Pony the year before.

When I questioned David Keene's Assistant about the snub, the Assistant told me it was because Ann called the Silk Pony a Faggot and it caused CPAC bad press. I told the woman that Ann did no such thing. The Assistant, a nice Conservative Lady, did not have a clue when it came to Ann's Sarcastic Wit and the associated Irony.

I think we are facing the same type of situation here.

I love how the left thinks it is OK to kill 3,000,000 babies per year, but get their panties in a wad if a terrorist has water poured in his face. I wanted the honor of being banned. I shall set my sights on being banned from more worthy sites !

I really like her sense of irony.

And I am surprised at the number of people who do not seem to appreciate the irony.

She makes a good point, and as usual, it has a sting to it.

Yet, some people read her comments and think that she is condoning Tiller’s murder. She is just contrasting the liberals’ horror at his murder with the total lack of emotion concerning all of those aborted babies.

The libs get more upset about the death of baby seals than they do baby humans.

WHAT? So people that agree (or recognize humor and sarcasm)with Ann Coulter only agree with her because she isnt fat, bald and 65? I can name plenty of older, balder, and fatter conservative thinkers that use humor, sharp wit and sarcasm in promoting conservative ideas. If you want to publicly agree with patrick1 that Ann Coulter is an idiot, then by all means feel free to embarrass yourself, but dont stoop so low as to say "these folks" here only recognize humor and sarcasm from from people that are not fat, bald and 65.

At first, I thought your comment was one of the dumbest and most insulting posts I have ever read on here. But after thinking about it, I think I disagree with you because you are not a hot looking blond chick.

Charles and his group of followers over at LGF are fearlessly patrolling the blog0sphere for any signs of Conservatives breaking with liberal orthodoxy so that they can throw one of their famous hissy-fits.

LGF and Charles Johnson are less than useless appendages to the conservative movement. Sorry to see his drivel posted here. I wish he would go climb back into whatever liberal ideology hatched him and stop pretending to be on our side.

His entire site is like that animated graphic that gets posted here sometimes of the little black kid yelling “that’s racist” over and over again.

Actually I think it was pretty funny.
It was a good take off on the “Don’t legislate morality” and “If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one” sound bites.

Personally, I’m with her. I wouldn’t shoot an abortionist and, if on a jury, I’d send an abortionist’s murderer to jail, but, other than praying for his soul, I won’t miss Dr. Tiller, and I’m glad to him gone.

"Abortion is far too serious an issue to make dry jokes about."

It is Ann's style and it is also 'gallows humor'. The absurdity of the left's argument for abortion is such that the only way to illustrate their hypocrisy is to use this humor.

The humor is shedding light on their position. Not abortion per say.

It really doesn't work to say, "Abortion is a tragedy." The left says, "I know (concerned look on face) but it is also a tragedy......"

Liberals position makes me sick. Ann's 'joke' makes the left look sick.

Good job Ann.

“Choosing life” implies that there is a moral superiority of one choice or the other, with the obvious moral superiority of NOT KILLING YOUR CHILD.

“Had-aborts” cannot stand to be reminded of this.

It is also clear, the Pro Abortion folks who prefer the term "Pro Choice" -- wish to CHOOSE whom is it acceptable to murder....

Who is to say when they decide to CHOOSE me or mine?

Their behavior ALREADY makes them murderers - what is to prevent them from adding others to their list of those they choose to murder? The elderly, sick, deformed, Republicans, Jews, Christians, Negroes, ???????????

“IMHO, their brains were fried on drugs a l-o-n-g time ago and this is what is left: a mind incapable of comprehending the truth.”

For some, maybe, but we can’t blame drugs on everything lib. I have family members who don’t drink, aren’t druggies, but they are libs through and through in their thinking (or lack thereof). Basically no logic at all in their thought process.

For most of them, it comes down to social things such as welfare. I actually heard one say to their child who had come to them for help, “You need to get food stamps. By golly, that’s what I pay taxes for.” Not an isolated case, as I’ve heard similar statements from them many times.

The thing that bothered me, this relative is well to do and could have helped their son. Their son is not lazy. He’s well-educated, working, paying bills, but just needed a little help to get established after military life.

Yet conservatives are mean and have no compassion because they take care of their own and want to leave govt out of it. Totally illogical thinking.
