Ann Coulter the Right Wing Darling is her usual nasty self.

Posted on 03/03/2007. Filed under: ann coulter, anti-republican, bigotry, john edwards |

Ann Coulter called Sen. Edwards a faggot at Conservative Political Action Conference CPAC) in Washington, D.C. Many main stream news agencies are ignoring this story. None of the Republican Presidential Candidates who were in attendance nor Vice President Cheney has come out to say that this type of Bigotry is unacceptable, but what can you expect from a party that uses Fear, Lies, Hate, and Prejudice to define their Party platform.

Edwards Campaign Responds to Coulter Calling Him ‘Faggot’


Ann Coulter
NEW YORK In recent years she has suggested that Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore have or may have homosexual tendencies. Now columnist/author Ann Coulter has targeted former senator (and current candidate for president) John Edwards.
Now the Edwards campaign has responded by trying to fundraise some “Coulter Cash.”
Speaking Friday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference CPAC) in Washington, D.C., Coulter closed her remarks with: “I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.”
Audience members appeared startled, then many clapped, and she opened the floor to questions. The event was carried on C-SPAN. Many newspapers covered the event but failed to mention the Coulter slur.

The Republican Platform

Edwards campaign email

Dear Steve,

Did you hear about Anne Coulter’s speech this afternoon attacking John? A friend just forwarded me the video and it’s one of the worst moments in American politics I’ve seen.

I can’t bring myself to even repeat her comments. Her shameless display of bigotry is so outrageous you actually have to see for yourself to believe it.

This is just a taste of the filth that the right-wing machine is gearing up to throw at us. And now that it’s begun, we have a choice: Do we sit back, or do we fight back?

I say we fight. Help us raise $100,000 in “Coulter Cash” this week to show every would-be Republican mouthpiece that their bigoted attacks will not intimidate this campaign. I just threw in 100 bucks. Will you join me? Just click here.

Coulter’s attack was no accident. It happened on national television at one of the year’s biggest conservative conferences. Dick Cheney and most of the Republican candidates were in the audience. She was even introduced by Mitt Romney.

John was singled out for a personal attack because the Republican establishment knows he poses the greatest threat to their power. Since they have nothing real to use against him, Coulter’s resorting to the classic right-wing strategy of riling up hate to smear a progressive champion. And the Republican attack dogs will keep playing this despicable trick as long as they think it works.

But this time, you and I can change the game.

If we can raise $100,000 in “Coulter Cash” this week, we can show that bigotry will only backfire on those who use it. John is not the first progressive leader to face this kind of slime, but together, we can make sure he is one of the last.

Tonight, I’ve put in 100 bucks of “Coulter Cash” to get us started. Can you match me, or chip in whatever you can afford? Just click here:

Ann Coulter’s comments were tawdry to say the least, and sadly she got what she wanted, attention.

However, in fairness, the comments of the hard left are equally reprehensible.

Whatever happened to civility?
