Ann Coulter Anti Jewish Equals Anti Christian

Ann Coulter must be out to sell yet another book given her latest comments. Some people might say that her answer to the baited question that she was given was an off handed remark. I tend to think that if it came out of her mouth then it lives inside of her somewhere that she thinks Jewish people need to be “perfected”.

What surprises me is that people actually buy her books. She comes out with these idiotic kind of statements all the time and yet she still manages to stay on top of the conservative go to list for all of the networks. Maybe the networks need to take a step back and look at the big picture and find someone else to talk to when it comes to conservative or republican issues. Over at the LA Times they have this little blurb on Ann Coulter and her lame excuse for being a Christian…

Anti-semitic remark puts Ann Coulter back in the hot seat

Jews need to be 'perfected' comment brings on denouncements.

NEW YORK -- Jewish leaders condemned conservative commentator Ann Coulter on Friday for her comments this week that Jews need to be "perfected," denouncing her remarks as the rationale behind two millenniums of anti-Semitism.

The assertion by the controversial pundit that Jews are inferior unless they convert to Christianity alarmed Jewish organizations and put the television networks that give Coulter a platform in an awkward position.

Coulter, a frequent guest on cable outlets such as MSNBC and Fox News, has also made appearances this year on the network morning shows "Today" and "Good Morning America" to promote her books. According to a compilation by Media Matters for America, a liberal watchdog group, she's been interviewed on national television almost every day this month.

The National Jewish Democratic Council this week called on the media to withhold future invitations to Coulter, whose inflammatory comments the group said "often border on hate speech."

Coulter could not be reached for comment.

As of Friday afternoon, none of the network news divisions or cable channels said they would keep her off the air. But they moved to distance themselves from the right-wing author, even as they defended her right to free speech.

Several of my friends happen to be Jewish and never in my Christian life have I ever looked at them and thought they needed to be “perfected”. Nope, we just enjoy one another’s company for being everything that we are as a person. Good times and bad times come and it is the friend that consoles you during the bad times just as much as your religious philosophy.

When I buried my father, my Jewish friends, my fathers’ Jewish friends came to the funeral and to the Catholic Mass to offer their prayers and condolences. When my Jewish friend was burying his father, I went to Temple and offered my prayers and condolences. Could you picture Ann Coulter setting foot in a Synagogue? Nope!

Chalk this one up to Ann Coulter out to sell yet another book full of extreme right wing ideology. I feel very sorry for her. While she is walking around God’s green earth with her nose so high in the air she is missing the opportunity of a lifetime to befriend people that just happen to be Jewish.

I'm not sure Coulter is anti-Semitic; she just seems like the kind of person who would say something outrageous just to get attention, and not really believe it herself.

I think that as a person with another book up for sale she has a great marketing stratedy. Just look at all the folks talking about her on the internet! Name recognition sells books these days and Ann Coulter will have her latest book flying off the shelf with all the free publicity she is getting.

What is up with her having an Adams Apple too?

Ann Coulter really does not know what it means to be Christian as she is completely out of her depth expecting anyone to become Christian. Especially if she is the example. All Republicans should be ashamed for letting her speak at their fund raisers as Coulter is nothing more then a vicious mouth piece who represents nothing more then a small minority of right wing extremists of hate and war mongers who love to be told what to think. If Christ almighty were to pay us a quick little site visit, he would have one thing to say to the Ann Coulters, right wingers & Republicans of the USA...."Be Gone, I never knew any of you"! Instead of the Jewish Pharisees and Sanhedrin of Jesus time, He would have an entirely new group of hypocrites to admonish composed mainly of Republicans, Coulter and their extremist sycophants.

The problem with the Ann Coulters of the world is the fact that they usually cannot find anything filthier then their own personal reflection. As such, they almost always wind up attacking others in order to make themselves feel superior. And when that does not work…no problem…they simply make up lies about others and resort to tactics that Jesus Christ himself would condemn. If Adolph Hitler could have met Ann Coulter, he would not have thought twice about putting her in full charge of his Gestapo. A perfect match…

If Coulter and Republicans are supposed to be the good guys...I don't even want to see the bad guys.

As a Conservative Jew, I can state that I will never buy another Ann Coulter book. Maybe I'm hypersensitive because hatred of Jews is such blase rhetoric and I'm so sorry if I'm so "not perfected" I need Ann to bring me to her church, but thanks but no thanks. I'll go on being a good moral person and hope for the best...without her antisemitic, unasked for advice. Remember, Jews make up 1/4 of 1percent of the entire world's population, why don't people choose a group representing a majority to fixate on and "help".

I don't see her as anything more than a money making shock author jfap. Somehow she manages to be an idiot and still sells her books?
