Terminate Ann Coulter's syndication

Terminate Ann Coulter's syndication

Ann Coulter has long been considered one of the worst syndicated columnists in history.  Not only is she incapable of critical thinking, but her writing style is banal and full of witticisms that could easily be attributed to an eleven-year old.  Nevertheless, some companies still feel that they need to carry her venomous rants.  I should point out that National Review, a magazine renowned for its very conservative slant and its bloodthirsty anti-Muslim columnists, elected to terminate Ann Coulter.

As an update, there was a certain amount of activity last week due to an article by World Net Daily.  Read some of the emails we received here.

Please take the time to send the letter below to the following links.  Please title your emails "Terminate Ann Coulter's Column".

Write to FrontPage Magazine.  These guys are extremely anti-Muslim and fanatic fascists in their pursuit of conservatism.  It is run by a David Horowitz, who loves Ann because she suggested that we invade Islamic countries and convert them to Christianity.  Little hope of convincing them to drop Ann Coulter, I'm afraid, but we should let them know that she sucks.
 

Dear Sir/Madam;

I would like to express my total dissatisfaction with your organization's syndication of columnist Ann Coulter.  Not only is she one of the worst columnists in recent history, she is also one of the most vindictive and bloodthirsty writers on today's circuit.  Ann Coulter's comments on various talk shows and through her columns portray her to be a vindictive, egocentric, and thoroughly anti-Muslim bigot that has the bad habit of speaking before she thinks.  Some of her more recent comments include:

[about Muslims]  "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war."

"[Clinton] masturbates in the sinks."---Rivera Live 8/2/99

"God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.'"---Hannity & Colmes, 6/20/01

To a disabled Vietnam vet: "People like you caused us to lose that war."---MSNBC

"I think we had enough laws about the turn-of-the-century. We don't need any more." Asked how far back would she go to repeal laws, she replied, "Well, before the New Deal...[The Emancipation Proclamation] would be a good start."---Politically Incorrect 5/7/97

It is evident that this "writer" is nothing more than a mouthpiece for ultra-reactionary conservatives, and a blowhard at that.  She does not represent American values; her comments fly in the face of everything that Americans stand for, including the conservative population.  She is disgusting and vindictive, and is unable to generate a single original idea.  Her columns are always about how evil Muslims are, or how all environmentalists should be sentenced to death.  Even conservative organizations like the National Review have dropped her syndication, citing a lack of professional ethics and  integrity. 

I am fairly certain that Ann Coulter does not represent the ideas and values of your company.  In fact, the only people she can claim to represent are bigots.  I therefore ask that you immediately cancel the appearance of her column from your organization.  I also would like to ask that you issue a public statement that informs the media that the reason that Ann Coulter was dropped was because of her paranoid and vindictive bigotry, and that she does not represent the values and the culture of your organization.

Thank you for your time.

Regards,

This was originally brought to my attention by JCG and I felt the contents of my e mail exchange with the Admin at proislam.com might be of interest to other Freepers:

Subject: Terminate Ann Coulter's Column

Gents,
 
    Just a quick note to let you know that I've sent emails to everyone on your "Terminate Ann Coulter's Column" campaign.
 
   

Dear Sirs,

 

            I’d just like to thank you for carrying Ann Coulter’s column.  She is uniquely forthright in her writing and opinions. 

            I’m aware of the campaign to black list her carried out by those who seek to remain undercover and congratulate you for not giving in.

 

            Keep up the great work!

 

           
 
    I've read the koran and like most Americans, know what you stand for.  You have been recognized as the enemy and Ann, her publishers, and her readers are spreading the word.
    The thought that you and your backwards supporters think you could affect change at these conservative organizations, shows just how delusional you are.  There's not a conservative in America who doesn't recognize you as a mortal enemy to the cause of freedom, dignity, human rights and all that is pure and good in this world.
 
    Your time is running out.
 
I'm anxiously awaiting your response so I can post it on FreeRepublic

I would also like to make a few comments, with respect to Freerepublic.com and you impression of our faith.
 
I have had my posting privileges revoked twice on Freerepublic.com, after posting information that was not conservative enough, I guess.  The second time I got banned after simply asking some questions, or pointing out fallacies in people's opinions about Islam.  This leads me to believe that this bulletin board is merely a place for people with the same ideas to get together and talk about how right they are.  Anyone with a dissenting opinion is banned and all of his or her posts are pulled.  Consequently, I do not have a lot of respect for this web site
 
Also, in the last two says, I have been bombarded by emails and hits from Freerepublic.com users.  Of the 200 emails I have received, only 2 were civilized.  Most of thy readers of Freerepublic.com suggested that we should leave the country or that they would personally come to execute us in the name of liberty.  From these emails, I have a good idea of the quality of reader from Freerepublic.com. 
 
Finally, if you really had read the Qur'an, I seriously doubt that you could consider Muslims the mortal enemy of freedom or dignity.  If you want top learn more about Islam, you can check out the following link:

      Editor, ProIslam.com

 Having posted on FreeRepublic for several years, I can assure you that if your posting privileges were revoked, it was not because your opinions were not "conservative enough" it was because you either posted profanity or engaged in personal attacks.  In fact there are several posters who are muslim who have been posting for years as well as a dozen or so dyed in the wool liberals.  None of them have been banned, which leads me to believe that you are being less than truthful about the content of your posts.

 As for your questioning of my reading the Koran, here's some nuggets I've pulled out from my reading that lead me to believe that your "religion" is little more than an excuse to commit murder and subjugate those who have a different faith:

"Kill the disbelievers wherever we find them" (Koran 2:191)

 "Ye are the best of peoples evolved for mankind." (Koran 3:110)

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be to be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet and genitals cut off, or to be expelled out of the land. Such will be their humiliation in the world, and in the next world they will face an awful horror." (Koran, 5:33-34)

"Not to make friendship with Jews and Christians" (Koran 5:51)

 "Remember Allah inspired the angels: I am with you. Give firmness to the believers. I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: you smite them above their necks and smite all their fingertips off of them." (Koran, 8:12)

"In order that Allah may separate the pure from the impure, put all the impure ones [all non-Muslims] one on top of another in a heap and cast them into hell. They will have been the ones to have lost." (Koran, 8:37)

"If there are twenty amongst you, you will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, you will vanquish a thousand of them [infidels]" (Koran 8:65).

 Allah and his messenger announce that it is acceptable to go back on our promises (treaties) and obligations with Pagans and make war on them whenever we find ourselves strong enough to do so (Koran 9:3)

 "Fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem" (Koran 9:5)

  Our God tells us to "fight the unbelievers" and "He will punish them by our hands, cover them with shame and help us (to victory) over them" (Koran 9:14).

"Until they pay the Jizya [a penalty tax for the non-Muslims living under Islamic rules] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (Koran 9:29)

 "Unless we go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish us with a grievous penalty, and put others in our place" (9:39).

 "O Prophet! Make war against the unbelievers [all non-Muslims] and the hypocrites and be merciless against them. Their home is hell, an evil refuge indeed." (Koran, 9:73)

 "Murder them and treat them harshly" (Koran 9:123)

"When you meet the unbelievers in jihad [holy war], chop off their heads. And when you have brought them low, bind your prisoners rigorously. Then set them free or take ransom from them until the war is ended." (Koran, 47:40)

"When we decide to destroy a population, we send a definite order to them who have the good things in life and yet sin. So that Allah's word is proven true against them, then we destroy them utterly." (Koran, 17:16-17)

"How many were the populations we utterly destroyed because of their sins, setting up in their place other peoples." (Koran, 21:11)

"strike off the heads of the disbelievers" (Koran 47:4)

"Seize ye him, and bind ye him, And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire. Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits! This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High. And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent! So no friend hath he here this Day. Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds, Which none do eat but those in sin." (Koran 69:30-37)

 You can continue to hope that Americans are too lazy to read your holy screed (assuming it's "Just like the Bible") and addicted to the farce of multiculturalism to wake up and see you for what you are, but your co-religionists are working at a cross purpose.   Each time a muslim draws inspiration from allah and kills as many infidels as he can, more civilized people realize that islam is a religion of hatred and violence.

I've also read the Koran or Queer'Ann, or whatever you want to call it.

Sorry, but Islam is for nutjobs.
For fifteen hundred years they've been trying to get organized enough to take over and slaughter the world.

Some religon of peace and mercy.

David Horowitz loves Ann because she suggested that we invade Islamic countries and convert them to Christianity.

And everybody knows if there is one thing that Jews, including David Horowitz, want, it's more Christians!

The Quran is what one takes from it. The Bible has some nasty quotes as well. The American Islamists are in the year 2003 and realize that some of these quotes were for their own time (like the Bibles quotes about beating wives). The idiot Islamists, who are living in the 14th century and letting the Imans tell them what the book says, are he ones we have to worry about. I've read it as well and the Old Testament could be used the same way if we were, "A Religion of Peace." The difference is that we don't use our religion to control the masses and live in a free country.
Go Ann, you say what most of us would like to.

I understand your point, but I'd counter it with this:
 
I can't speak for any denomination besides Catholicism, but we view the Old Testament (very simply put) as more a history, than a guide for conducting one's self.   The Gospels are a code of conduct, and having been through Catechism, reading the Bible cover to cover, and hundreds of homilies, I've never heard The Father say I was supposed to kill anyone (or even that it was at my discretion).
 
That being said,  I completely agree with your point on the islamists letting the imam fill their heads with ideas that may have been handy back in the 14th Century or earlier.

I think they've got the wrong columnist this seems more appropriate.

"Molly Ivins has long been considered one of the worst syndicated columnists in history. Not only is she incapable of critical thinking, but her writing style is banal and full of witticisms that could easily be attributed to an eleven-year old. Nevertheless, some companies still feel that they need to carry her venomous rants."

One other difference is that, except for the Ten Commandments, the Bible (OT) is not universally prescriptive. Believers are not directed to convert to Judaism or kill every non-believer they find. There are major parts of the Quran which specifically say just that. The instances where Moses' people are directed to lay waste are specific to certain peoples and times.

"And this would be wrong because..... ?"
Of course, the quote was not "about muslims", it was about terrorists who had just committed the most bloodthirsty peacetime attack on unarmed civilians in the history of planet Earth. And there is NOTHING wrong with the quote in that context (did you notice the lack of a date on THAT quote?). Quote #2 is a statement of fact. Quote #3 is, well, Ann. Quotes # 4 & 5 sound like out-of-context / misquote horsepoop.

From http://www.anncoulter.org:

We'll Pay Them Reparations Later

December 27, 2001

IN RESPONSE TO THE attempted bombing last week of an American Airlines jet by Tariq Raja -- aka Abdel Rahim, aka Richard "Saltonstall" Reid IV, aka "Biff" -- the airlines sprang to action with random passenger shoe checks.

According to The New York Times, there is no discernible pattern in the airlines' choice of fliers targeted for aggressive footwear examination. At the Atlanta airport, for example, the passengers whose shoes were searched "included a flight attendant, an elderly black man, a white man wearing a cowboy hat and boots, and an Asian woman with two small children."

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman responded to this latest attack by summarily announcing that our only choices are to "become less open as a society" or simply "to live with much higher levels of risk."

I think I have another solution. It's something I like to call "ethnic profiling." My logic is this: There is a common thread hidden within 20 years of relentless attacks on America by Muslim extremists: In every one of these attacks by Muslim extremists, there appears to be one or more Muslim extremists involved. This ought to help the airlines engage in more accurate risk assessment.

Tariq "Biff" Raja attended the same mosque as Zacarias Moussaoui, the suspected 20th hijacker in the Sept. 11 attack. (The New York Times has yet to report Tariq's connection to the mosque, though the paper will surely print that fact before any of the media will ever breathe a word about the story reported in the San Francisco Examiner that American jihadist John Walker's father left Mrs. Walker for another man.)

The men who used passenger jets to attack America on Sept. 11 were Muslim extremists.

Last year, our warship, the USS Cole, was attacked by Muslim extremists.

In 1998, U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim extremists, killing 212 people and wounding thousands.

In 1996, Muslim extremists exploded a truck bomb outside an Air Force housing complex in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 and injuring hundreds more.

In 1995, five Americans were killed in a car bomb explosion executed by Muslim extremists.

In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed by Muslim extremists, killing six and injuring thousands.

Also in 1993, Muslim extremists plotted to assassinate then U.S. President George Bush. (Intriguingly, the word "assassin" comes from a Muslim sect active in the 11th to 13th centuries known as "the Assassins" for their religious practice of murdering infidels.)

In 1988, another passenger jet, Pan Am flight 103, was bombed by Muslim extremists, killing 270 people.

In 1986, Muslim extremists bombed a West Berlin discotheque frequented by U.S. servicemen.

In 1985, Muslim extremists seized an Italian cruise ship, the Achille Lauro, and murdered Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old, wheelchair-bound American.

In 1983, Muslim extremists blew up U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, killing 241 American servicemen.

In 1982, Muslim extremists bombed the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, killing 49 people, including 17 Americans.

In 1979, Muslim extremists stormed the U.S. Embassy in Iran and held American Embassy staff hostage for 444 days.

So naturally, it took the airlines completely by surprise last week when the passenger who tried to detonate a sneaker bomb on a passenger jet turned out to be a Muslim extremist. Doggedly imitating an Alzheimer's joke, the airlines instantly began ever more intrusive examinations of elderly black men, cowboys and Asian women with small children.

Meanwhile, al-Qaida just keeps on coming. The chairman of the London mosque attended by Moussaoui and Raja told the British Broadcasting Corp. he believes there are hundreds more Islamic extremists in Britain lying in wait for their chance to become suicide bombers. He expressed incredulity at the idea that Rahim could have planned the sneaker bomb plot on his own.

Yet the Times' Friedman, in a commonplace formulation, sniffs that ethnic profiling is not "civilized" and then gratuitously attacks "religious fundamentalists of any stripe."

I don't know. Amish extremists have been rather quiescent lately. If all this carnage and murder had been executed by anti-abortion extremists rather than Muslim extremists, it is unlikely that Friedman would be pussyfooting around the issue by referring to the culprits as "political extremists of any stripe."

The refusal to make a connection between Muslim extremists and unending violence by Muslim extremists borders on psychopathological disturbance. Usually the nonsense liberals spout is kind of cute, but in wartime their instinctive idiocy is life-threatening.

In 1996, Osama bin Laden mocked the United States, saying: "Your problem will be how to convince your troops to fight, while our problem will be how to restrain our youths to wait for their turn in fighting."

Our "youths" have taken Kabul, dropped daisy-cutters on Osama's cave, and are now sleeping in their boots in the middle of an Afghan winter while dreaming of Iraq.

But on another front -- the commercial aircraft war-zone opened by al-Qaida -- bin Laden is right: We refuse to fight. Bedraggled smelly men who make Talibanist John Walker look like Beaver Cleaver are getting on airplanes with C4 explosive material, and we commend ourselves for being so "civilized."

Color and emphasis added by me.
Brilliance by Ann was in the original. :o)

Have you talked to any fundamentalist Christians lately? I am Catholic too, but some of the more militant Christian groups think that every word in the Bible is EXACT. The difference is that, even in the most Bible thumping Christian group, everyone CAN read and therefore can see for themselves what the Good Book says.

When you get the time, could you post a list of quotes from the Bible that condone beating wives? In my studies of the Scripture, I haven't ever seen those quotes. Thanks.

"[Clinton] masturbates in the sinks."---Rivera Live 8/2/99

I guess the author thinks that statement is offensive. It's offensive because it's true.

"I think we had enough laws about the turn-of-the-century. We don't need any more." Asked how far back would she go to repeal laws, she replied, "Well, before the New Deal...[The Emancipation Proclamation] would be a good start."---Politically Incorrect 5/7/97

Just gotta correct just one of the many glaring inaccuracies. The New Deal was NOT, repeat NOT, the Emancipation Proclamation. Sheesh.

Have you talked to any fundamentalist Christians lately?

As a fundamentalist Christian, I believe that the Bible is the truth and that every bit of it is the inspired Word of God.

In the OT, God commanded His Chosen people to serve Him only, and on occasion to blot out entire nations of people who worshipped false gods. Those commands were specific, not universal. Now that Christ has been given and we live under a new covenant with God, he has commanded that we love one another, that we take the Gospel of Christ to all nations, and that we be a light and salt in a world of darkness.

I'm anxiously and curiously awaiting your citation of Scriptures that advocate violence against non-Christians, or your previously mentioned advocacy of wife-beating.

Ok, whatever is in the [] braces is not part of the actual quote, right? So, the liberal editing the quote is saying the "new deal" is actually the emancipation proclamation? OK ... riiiiight...

Sorry. In looking over my notes, the leader lumped the Proverbs 13:24 "He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him."
in with wife problems. I guess this is why we read the Bible ourselves and do not let other's tell us what is in there. I'm so glad that you have the ability to correct what other's may say. It helps one to remain correct in arguments.
Good thing I don't go to BSF anymore.

The Quran is what one takes from it. The Bible has some nasty quotes as well. The American Islamists are in the year 2003 and realize that some of these quotes were for their own time (like the Bibles quotes about beating wives). The idiot Islamists, who are living in the 14th century and letting the Imans tell them what the book says, are he ones we have to worry about. I've read it as well and the Old Testament could be used the same way if we were, "A Religion of Peace." The difference is that we don't use our religion to control the masses and live in a free country.
Islam isn't inherently any more evil a religion than Christianity, its just less advanced chronologically. Considering that six hundred years ago (or less) the various aspects of Christianity were constantly warring on other faiths (and indeed on each other), and considering the literal meaning of certain Leviticus and Deuteronomy verses, Jesus's admonition about throwing stones comes to mind.

One thing that's certain is that if we as conservatives or America as a nation declares all of Islam to be our enemy, it will be a self-fulfilling prophecy. I'd just as soon judge individuals as individuals regardless of their faith.

Thank you Eric, that's what I was trying to say.
Living in the Detroit area, if one is not meeting a Muslim, it is not a day.
And may I put in a plug for my fav restaurant, The Meer in Sterling Heights....
People are people, killers are killers. Not all who are Islamic are killers. Some are in my daughter's kindergarten class.

Thanks. And I'm sorry if I went off on you. I just get really tired of hearing people make claims like "the Bible says you should beat your wife" or "the Bible says to kill this group or that group" or other such nonsense, but then they never back up such claims with a single supporting verse.

Oh no!!! I think you are absolutly right! How can I not sound like an idiot if I quote incorrectly? (here's a hint, I was raised Catholic) I envy those who can pull up direct scripture quotes with book and verse. I'm trying to learn, but I didn't have the years of Sunday school that rewarded for knowing Bible verses!
And again, we must read for ourselves.
