Conservative talking head Ann Coulter graced our fair city with her presence the other day to speak on behalf of the Republican Party of Alachua County for their Black Tie and BBQ fund-raiser. She talked up current Bush policies and she (again) attacked former President Clinton, which is so last millennium, and yet continues to comprise a significant portion of her material.
This controversial columnist was invited by the Executive Committee to deliver her message to the local Republican faithful. Some of the many aggressively fanatical political hate statements Ann Coulter can lay claim to in her past include: referring to liberals as "terrorists" and the Democratic Party as a "cult". Coulter even said, "Liberals love Islam, hate all other religions" and on Islamic extremists stated, "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."
In 2001 Coulter said, "God said, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it! It's yours'" and in 2002 she said, "... a cruise missile is more important than Head Start" and "My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."
This hate-filled political pundit was invited to be the featured speaker at the Republican Party of Alachua County's fund-raising dinner. I can only assume from the attendance, and the applause that surely followed, that her form of extremist hate-speak represents the views of those who arranged and attended the dinner.
