Skip to comments.Ann Coulter: Never Compliment a Democrat
Posted on 09/28/2005 12:21:53 PM PDT by kddid
Best selling author and conservative pundit Ann Coulter told Alan Colmes on the "Hannity and Colmes" show on Fox News last night that she meant it when she wrote in her book "How to Talk to a Liberal - If You Must," now out in paperback, that the rules for talking to a liberal forbid complimenting or showing graciousness to, or flattering a Democrat.
Colmes then told Coulter that Pat Tillman, the former pro football player turned Army Ranger who was killed in Afghanistan, was pro-John Kerry and against the war in Iraq. "You were quoted in the San Fransisco Chronicle yesterday" Colmes continued, saying that Tillman "was virtuous and pure, as only an American male can be. I wonder if you still would say those things" knowing he was a Democrat?
"No, but I don't believe it," she said. "I think you got that from one of those document that Mary Mapes (The producer of the bogus CBS News story on George W. Bush's Guard service) handed in to Dan Rather."
Sean Hannity then asked her about the story on her Web site, about the two Indiana firefighters volunteering to help the people of New Orleans who were sent by FEMA to an eight hour class on sexual harassment and equal opportunity, rather than straight to the Crescent City to aid residents. Ann notes on her site, "Anyone who works for FEMA for more than two weeks is required to take training programs in 'awareness and prevention of sexual harassment,' 'equal rights officer orientation,' and 'valuing diversity.'"
She told Hannity it was just another case of "Welcome to the federal government.
"That's what we ought to be having hearings on. That's what I think [former FEMA boss] Michael Brown should have been asked about. I assume this applies to all federal agencies, which is why in general, conservatives don't want to federalize everything. This is what you get when you get FEMA."
Hannity said, I think you could do a whole book just on this topic!" No, Coulter disagreed, the diversity training before you can go and rescue people says it all.
Today on Fox News' "Dayside" program, Coulter commented on Tom Delay's indictment by a Texas grand jury, saying it is pure politics by prosecutor Ronnie Earle and is a perfect example of the need for her book because Liberals want Republicans outlawed, and they "would like to put us all in Guantanamo."
Ann Coulter for the Supreme Court!
Ann gets it.
I know those "diversity training" programs are also standard fare at the Department of the Interior and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Good thing neither of those departments do anything important!
Well said, Ann!
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Tillman was pro Kerry? I thought he was killed before the election process. Even if he was pro Kerry he very likely did not know the whole story about Kerry. If he did he likely would have given up any support for that seditious dirtbag.
I first saw this tossed about by loonies over the weekend. I haven't seen anything resembling verification (even the goofy leftist crap ;'}
You have violated a serious rule here at Freerepublic you will be shot at dawn.
Hey now- the DOI does some good work!! Well some parts of the DOI....not going to defend HUD.
Cindy Sheehan channelled it through her tin hat.
As true as Sheehan's son was hoodwinked into joining the Army a SECOND time.
Democratic history revisionism, pure and simple.
It is standard fare for all federal government employees (including military personnel). It is also required punishment for many employees of companies doing contract work for the federal government.
Don't let anybody tell you we can't pay for Katrina/Rita with the fat in current federal budgets
I almost lost my drink too! God that was funny!
She did say she'd love to be "harassed" by a firefighter and wanted Fox to do a poll on how many American women would like to be harrassed by one.
My wife was couldn't stop laughing for half an hour.
