OK, so some readers are perplexed that I am a fan of Ann Coulter. That's understandable.....that is if you're a sensitive, delicate, hot-house flower liberal who goes into spastic conniptions whenever somebody says something contrary to your warped sense of the human condition. That being the case, an irate reader whose handle I forget, sarcastically remarked last week about Ann's latest statement that went way over the line. I had not heard, but I dug it up and thought I'd comment on it. First, here's the pertinent part of the transcript with her conversation with Johnny Deutch in which Ann responded to a question that she thought the world would be better off if there were more Christians...
DEUTSCH: Christian — so we should be Christian? It would be better if we were all Christian?
DEUTSCH: We should all be Christian?
COULTER: Yes. Would you like to come to church with me, Donny?
DEUTSCH: So you don’t think that was offensive?
COULTER: No. I’m sorry. It is not intended to be. I don’t think you should take it that way, but that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews. We believe the Old Testament. As you know from the Old Testament, God was constantly getting fed up with humans for not being able to, you know, live up to all the laws. What Christians believe — this is just a statement of what the New Testament is — is that that’s why Christ came and died for our sins. Christians believe the Old Testament. You don’t believe our testament.
Ann has a caustic, direct way of stating the facts, but essentially that's what she did. It wasn't a slam on Jews, but indignant liberals, pretending to be horrified, will howl like rabid dogs at the moon about it as if it was. Theologically, Ann is spot on. As Christians we believe that Christ came to save us from our miserable selves. We were too incompetent to follow the laws so we needed a way to redemption. A way to become perfect as we enter the kingdom of heaven. It's a simplistic version I know, but it works for this discussion.
You see rather than debate the merits of what she actually said, liberals like Deutch and others see an opportunity to make political hay and attack Ann as anti-semitic, knowing full well that she didn't mean anything bad toward the Jews. It's typical of liberals to twist anything to use for political gain. For like the 50th time, liberals said, "Well she's done it this time. She's ended her career. She's gone way over the line this time and she'll pay." It's funny, every time liberals say her career is over for some imaginary line she's crossed, her book sales skyrocket, her speaking engagements and fees go up, her TV appearances go up, and her popularity among rank-and-file conservatives continues to grow. If Ann "ends her career" too many more times, she'll be able to afford a second Manhattan condo to go with the first one she paid cash for.
This is how the party of diversity, tolerance, and inclusion reacts when a conservative dares to challenge their hysterical, narrow ideology. Now, which is the party of hate?
