Tonight, I do my FBN show (9pm) on political correctness. I’m opposed to it – but is there some limit?
Ann Coulter takes being un-PC pretty far. One paper called her “The Most Loathsome Person in America” for comments like:
"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh … he did not go to the New York Times building."
"John Edwards… you have to go into rehab if you use the word "faggot".”
“Katie Couric… the affable Eva Braun of morning TV.”
In response to that last one, a Vanity Fair columnist sneered: "Coulter may have bitten off more than she could vomit."
And after four 9/11 widows blamed President Bush for their husband’s deaths, Coulter said:
“I've never seen people enjoying their husband's deaths so much…. how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies?”
Some conservatives say Ann takes it too far. Amy Ridenour, President of conservative think tank NCPPR, says Ann’s words are: “worse than damaging to conservatism -- they hurt the United States.”
Here’s how she defends her comments on my show:
“My experience with liberals is you must bash them over the head. You must humiliate them. You have to make them cry. And then some time later, they will come around. But I do not think people make major intellectual transformations without either laughing or crying first.
Thus, my style.”
