So another suicide bomber comes of nowhere and kills 19 innocent Iraqi's yesterday, including children, more hostages are about to be murdered and our soldiers are continuing to die in Iraq, but I'm supposed to be upset with Ann Coulter calling terrorists "ragheads"? Regardless of the fact that she was clearly referring to the bad guys, some in the conservative blogosphere want to call out one of our own? I don't get it.
I mean, can we put things in the proper perspective here?
And does anyone even care that the blogger who started this latest anti-Coulter campaign is a liberal who's been hatin' on Coulter for like 4 years now? Have any of these bloggers calling out Coulter been to the popular Leftist blog the Daily Kos lately? So they can see liberals spew daily about their utter contempt and hatred for President Bush? Or maybe they're just the same extreme-right conservative bloggers who defend free speech when it comes to Danish newspapers printing inflammatory cartoons on Mohammed, but condemn Coulter for calling terrorists "ragheads".
Now there's a double-standard if I've ever seen one.
Ann Coulter is one of the best conservative pundits out there. She's smart, clever, funny and judging from the huge sales of her books, she matters. So much so that John Kerry, in his recent and desperate attempt to prevent Samuel Alito from getting on the Supreme Coulter, called out Coulter's name in trying to convince his liberal minions to rally around his hate for Alito. I don't always agree with what Coulter writes, but from my reading's of Coulter's columns, timidity is not something that exists in her world.
I respect that.
We know that liberals loathe Coulter because she pulls their cards by speaking directly to their blatant hypocrisies and immoral agenda. Conservatives should know that the more liberals throw their hate towards you, the more you need to keep doing your job. Besides that, I'd prefer to call a white liberal who exploits slavery and uses Black people for her own financial & political gain a "racist" way before I do Ann Coulter.
With that said, I reserve the right to call a terrorist any kind of derogatory name I want to. Same for suicide bombers who kill innocent people, including children. If it hurts their feelings, too bad. So too for calling them "ragheads".
