I frequently surf Canucklehead
for my fill of Canadian content blogging and was absolutely astounded by this media clip
*. Apparently Ann Coulter believes that "Canada is lucky that the US allows Canada to exist on the same continent". Wow Ann! How novel that you are still clinging to the notion of Manifest Destiny!WARNING: Clicking that last link is bound to piss off any red and white blooded, passive aggressive, Tim Horton's coffee swigging, maple leaf patch sewer onto backpacks, Casey and Finnegan raised, dog-sledding (do we really all have dog sleds?!? Ah Tucker Carlson, how you misrepresent us) Canadian! It is not for the faint of heart. You have now been duly warned! *
I was certainly struck by the words of Ann Coulter, the right wing (fascist?) lawyer/columnist/ self proclaimed pundit/Faux News groupie and spewer of all things both hateful and absolutely idiotic. But then, the fury quickly subsided as I remembered to consider the source. Ah yes, consider the source! This is after all, Ann Coulter, the same woman who brought us the following gemstones of wisdom.***
To a disabled Vietnam vet: "People like you caused us to lose that war."-- Ann Coulter, MSNBC
"I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote."---Hannity & Colmes, 8/17/99
"I think [women] should be armed but should not [be allowed to] vote."---Politically Incorrect, 2/26/01
"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***
Let's face it. Ann is not dealing with a full box of Tim Bits. She bases her extreme statements on emotion rather than on reason. She makes off the wall, off coloured statements in the hope of stirring up the emotions of her audience. Overall, she is successful. Most dismiss her crazy statements as being nothing more than "Ann-isms" but there are the select few who are blinded by the stupidity serum that Coulter peddles under the guise "American patriotism". That is very unfortunate as it is those who follow her absurd line of reasoning that cause Canadians to stereotype Americans in a negative way.
Here is a fun party game provided to us by AntiCoulter
. When reading statements made by Ann, substitute her name for the word "Liberal" and see if you can determine if Ann is evil or just plain stupid!
