Coultergeist

by Ben Adler, CampusProgress.org

Those of you weren't privileged to read our undercover blogging from the Conservative Political Action Conference missed out on a lot of fun, but most especially hearing about Ann Coulter's racist wit.  Fear not! Rather than write two screeds in one week Coulter put the entire speech, almost verbatim, into column form on FrontPage magazine.  But, as our intrepid reporters Adam DeDent and Annika Carlson noticed, she changed one slur that she was criticized by a CPAC attendee for using.  So, no more will she refer to Muslims as "ragheads" they shall henceforth be know as "jihad monkeys."  Much more civilized.  As my colleage August J Pollak notes, this self-censorship seems to contradict the very same self-congratulatory tone she strikes over her brave bluntness in the very same column. 

Our transcript from the conference also contains this exchange:

Student: Thanks for coming down and regaling us with your wit. What I wanted to know was when are you planning on expanding your little routine to cover blacks, Jews and Asians.

....

Coulter: Oh, ok--maybe when they fly planes into our skyscrapers and kill 3000 Americans (inaudible due to applause). Maybe then I'll make jokes at their expense.

Now this exposes Coulter's logic in all its fatousness.  If nineteen Jews hijacked plans and flew them into buildings would all Jews, myself included, be held responsible by Coulter and her ilk?  Better question still: what if it was nineteen blond WASPY women?

I think you're making a mistake on Coulter's logic here. If it was 19 Jews from Israel and Israel had declared war on the US (as Islamic states have), then she would be making jokes at their expense as well.

If there was a country of blond WASPY women dedicated to the destruction of the United States and, to that end, had funded and supported an attack similar to 9/11, then jokes at their expense could be made by Coulter.

Her use of "ragheads" was regrettable since it demeans not only the Islamic extremist bent on murdering as many Americans as possible but also the more peaceful Islamic people who decry the violence (rumor has it they do exist although I never see one in the media).

"they shall henceforth be know as "jihad monkeys." Much more civilized."

Chimpy McBush and BusHitler are a few things I have seen Bush called (that I can think of off the top of my head). Now if I researched it, I am sure I could come up with a lot more, said by prominant Democrats (Bush is a thug, a ganglord - Sharpton, top of my head) I am sure you libs have a plethora of them rolling off your tongues and I don't feel like researching it.


"If nineteen Jews hijacked plans and flew them into buildings would all Jews, myself included, be held responsible by Coulter and her ilk?"

If the Jewish leaders and the Jewish communtity refused to speak out against 9/11, if Rabbis were preaching 'death to America' in the Synagogues, if Jews blamed US foreign policy for 9/11 and they were dancing in the streets in Tel Aviv on 9/11, then yeah, I and most of America would blame Jews.

Perhaps if all of the Jews had an underground organization dedicated to the destruction of a legitimate country we support and either danced in the streets and winked and nodded in approval as the planes plowed into the buildings killing our citizens.......

Something I've wondered about recently--if the terrorists are such a threat, why, almost 5 years after 9/11, is the border with Mexico still so wide open. It is so easy to walk, even drive, across many porous points in the border. A terrorist who wanted to smuggle weapons/nuclear materials/biologicals would have little problem....I mean if I was a terrorist I'd have already slipped into the US and done more damage. The Bush admin. doesn't seem concerned about this. So maybe the threat isn't quite as imposing as hysterical Ann would lead one to believe.

Wow, what an idiot Steve is. I hope the Democrats pick up his mantra.

"Terrorists aren't that big of a threat!"

Republicans might actually win the state of New York.

"If it was 19 Jews from Israel and Israel had declared war on the US (as Islamic states have), "

wow... wowie zowie. Which Islamic states have declared open war on the U.S.? Certainly not Saudi Arabia, where most of the 9/11 hijackers came from... Which Islamic state? Oh, and you're a moron.

Are you actually comparing insulting the President with racist slurs? Comparing Bush to Hitler may be in bad taste, but it's not quite the same as tarring a whole race, is it?

Hey Phil,

What about Harry Belafonte calling Powell a house slave, or cartoonist Ted Rall depicting Condi Rice as Bush's 'Aunt Jemima' slave?

As I said before, when more Muslim's speak out against Islamic terrorism rather than condone it or be silent,
then, we can seperate Muslim's from Islamo-Fascists.

Was it wrong to 'tar' the whole German nation in the 1930s and 1940s for what the NAZIs did?

That sounds like a movie I would totally watch. It would be like Executive Decision, but with the Swedish Bikini Team instead of Hercule Poirot.

So how many denunciations will it take before you guys stop laughing at "ragheads" and "jihad monkeys"? Cause we don't want to lose that sort of sophisticated political commentary. I mean, if we are going to win the war on terror we will need all the racist invective we can get our hands on.

Posted by: Col Bat Guano | Feb 18, 2006 12:33:23 AM

Captain Toke--that's very Ann Coulterish of you to resort to name calling.....but still the border with Mexico is wide open, why has this not been addressed?

Posted by: Steve Mudge | Feb 18, 2006 2:32:56 AM

"I mean, if we are going to win the war on terror we will need all the racist invective we can get our hands on."

Why don't you guys clean the racists out of your own back yard(Sharpton, Jackson, Byrd, Belafonte, Rall, the Maryland Democratic party, etc.) before you worry about what Ann Coulter says.

Well, to be honest Steve, not withstanding your position on terrorism, "We don't need to worry about no terrorist", I am very disappointed with the way Bush has handled our southern border. I have said before, because intillectual honesty calls for it, I have said that if a terrorist comes across our southern border and attacks, the responsibility will fall squarely on GWBush's shoulders. He has not even tried to improve the border situation and he even called the Minutemen 'vigilantes'. I believe Bush was authorized to hire 2000 more border guards and instead he has hired less than a thousand. He also is not hard enough on the corrupt Mexican gov't that encourages it's citizens to break our laws.

I don't know why terrorists haven't crossed the southern border and attacked yet. Maybe they have crossed and are waiting, maybe it isn't as easy as we think (with 'Predator Drones' and other electronic surveilence).

I wholeheartedly agree! A nation that cannot control it's own borders will not be a nation for long.

Here is something for discussion: The Democrats are introducing a bill that would block the sale of American ports to a Dubai firm. I think that is the smart thing to do and it's good for our security. Good for them! Now, with this new found quest and concern for security, I would like them to also be concerned and introduce bills that would close our borders to illegal immigration.
If they don't, I would like to know why.

Just for the record, I (and I think I can speak for the Captain as well) am asking this same question of the Republican leadership.

Oh oh, looks like attack of the strawmen from the pothead. You forgot to mention Hillary's "plantation" remark. Better keep up to date on those rightwing talking points or no defense contract kickbacks for you.

Posted by: Col Bat Guano | Feb 18, 2006 1:21:56 PM

"Oh oh, looks like attack of the strawmen from the pothead."

What a hypocrit. A former Ku Klux Klan recruiter was the leader of batshit's party and he is upset cuz Ann Coulter berates our enemy. Good thing you weren't alive during WWII, your head would've popped from all the slant eyed, bucked teeth Jap posters!

Do you guys call every argument you can't win a 'strawman' now? Kinda like reveiling John Kerry's liberal Senate voting record to America in the 2004 campaign was an 'attack' on Kerry by the Republicans. Funny thing is batshit, I get blistered stoned and still out think you.

Correcting liberals with one hand wrapped around a big, fat giant doober, just to make it fair!

Man you are one witty fellow! You sure that's a doober in your hand and not your dick? Cause it sure seems like all that masturbation in your folks basement has affected your thinking. Calling Democrats racists is weak my friend, but you knew that.

Posted by: Col Bat Guano | Feb 18, 2006 7:03:11 PM

Calling Democrats racists is weak my friend...

Democrats practice a soft form of racism. They want their vote and are willing to vote minorities programs and monies from the public coffers, but God forbid they should nominate any of "those people" to powerful government positions. I look at Clinton's cabinet and then I look at the Bush cabinet. I also comparte the nominations to the SC made by Clinton and Bush. The difference is stark.

Posted by: Fred Jones | Feb 18, 2006 7:42:15 PM

"Calling Democrats racists is weak my friend, but you knew that."

Yeah, where do I get off calling Robert Byrd (D-WV), former Ku Klux Klansman who still routinely uses the word 'nigger', where do I get off calling him or Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton racists?!

Because you are crazy. Robert Byrd received a 100% rating from the NAACP. It is hard to imagine that Byrd saying "white nigger" is hateful or biased against blacks, and in any case he has apologized for that.

As for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, I'll just stick with you are crazy.

I'd give him a 100% too if he rolled over for me as well. However, on national television he used the word "nigger" more than once. Yes, he has apologized for it, but didn't Trent Lott apologize over and over for his less direct statement? Heck, at least he wasn't an actual member....a Kleagle...Gawd it shows how blind you are. anything for money and power.
