Ann Coulter recently decided to share her opinion about soccer for the rest of the world to share. Basically she said “Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation’s moral decay.” Of course Ann Coulter ignores the idea that people who like her may also be a sign of this nation’s moral decay.
When you read what Ann Coulter says, you have to wonder if she’s just joking around or if she actually believes what she says. If she’s joking to fool everything into thinking she’s an ultra-conservative pundit when she’s really not, then she’s got Stephen Colbert beat by a landslide.
However if she actually believes what she says, then you have to wonder not only about the function of her own brain activity but the mental stability of people who agree with her.
There’s nothing wrong with someone like Ann Coulter spouting off her ignorance about something as seemingly harmless as soccer. What is wrong is when someone like Ann Coulter would feel perfectly at home with the Taliban if she were born in the Middle East and happened to be a man.
Ann Coulter makes a ton of money selling books and giving speeches to people who support her point of view. Then again, Hitler made money selling books and giving speeches to people who supported his point of view as well, so who says there aren’t opportunities for white people any more? In the realm of oppressive dictatorships and megalomaniac egos, it’s refreshing to see that countries like North Korea, Cuba, China, and Russia don’t have a monopoly when the United States can trot out Ann Coulter as the American symbol of bigotry, intolerance, and hatred.
Perhaps if Ann Coulter were a man and grew up in North Korea, her name would be Kim Jung-un. Or if she were a man and grew up in Russia, her name would have been Joseph Stalin. Then again if Ann Coulter were cloned as a man and grew up in the United States, she could rape herself.
Only someone like Ann Coulter could see soccer as a way to insult and demean a large part of the rest of the world. For someone who wants to find a way to stay in the public spotlight, Ann Coulter knows exactly which buttons to push to get the most attention. What’s sad isn’t that people like Ann Coulter exist, but that people exist who actually like and support her point of view.
For every Hitler in the world, there’s an army of anonymous cowards who would love nothing more than to hide behind the facade of a real leader and use that as an excuse to unleash their own reign of terror on others. Ann Coulter may be like Hitler, but the real threat are the anonymous people who support and embrace her point of view.
