Ann Coulter and O’Reilly Factor guest host Laura Ingraham made some really good points tonight while discussing Discovery Channel hostage taker James Jay Lee. Coulter said that we can’t generalize fans of Al Gore just because one of them went crazy while Ingraham admonished Liberals for generalizing Conservatives whenever another tragedy happens and the shoe’s on the other foot. Of course, these good points were slightly muddied by all the comments around them about how all environmentalists want a world without humans and love earthworms more than people and so on and so forth.
Yes, one couldn’t really be blamed for getting slightly mixed messages while watching the segment. In fact, sometimes the mixed messages seemed to come side by side like in these comments from Coulter that make a hard left turn about half way through:
“I mean, there are going to be nuts who are fans of all sorts of things out there. That church killer down in Tennessee was citing Bernie Goldberg’s book. The Craigslist killer was a fan of mine. So I don’t think you can jump quickly, the way liberals always do, to this guy was a fan of a particular political point of view and then he killed someone. But, in this case, well, there are two points to be made. One is, over all, the political violence is heavily committed by Liberals. White Liberals I might add. And, secondly, the environmentalist nuts, this is their end goal. Not just the ones who pull out the guns. It is the elimination of humans.”
