Perfecting Jews

posted by on October 14 at 16:11 PM

I know, I know, I hate this acting-offended-by-Ann-Coulter’s-calculated-to-offend-though-actually-still-offensive-commentary-because-it-validates-not-only-her-but-the-whole-expert-industry-subintellectual-pundit-class-of-meretricious-douchebags-hijacking-the-worthless-corpse-of-American-political-discourse shit, too. But this is too good:

"We just want the Jews to be perfected!"

using all those hyphens means it goes off the page and can't be read

I guess it should come as no surprise that someone who makes a living spouting untrue bullshit sputters and dies when asked to back anything up.

The fact that someone who uses Seinfeld as a case study for racial diversity and tolerance is at all allowed to speak on TV is kind of sad. I find myself almost feeling bad for her... for her stupidity.

And you all are imperfect atheists, still holding on to the make believe idea of god or the easter bunny or Santa. I think it is the duty of all athiests to "perfect" all people of all religious beliefs.

Context is everything -- Coulter is a comedian, and a very amusing one at that, like a sweetly retarded girl falling down steps.

People offended by her are equally retarded.

@2: what browser are you using?

You must obey.

When I heard that a few days ago I couldn't help but be reminded of several recent (past 10 years) serial killer movies where the perpetrator said (either to his victims or to the hero who caught him) that he was 'perfecting' the people he murdered.

It made this whole thing seem so, so creepy to me.

My favorite Coulter video is when she gets the smackdown for thinking Canada sent troops to Vietnam

"Would you like to come to church with me Donny?" hehehe

Say what you will, but I'd still suck her dick.

I know there are plenty of "Coulter is a man" jokes, but am I the only one who sees her Adam's Apple?

She has to be faking it at this point. Someday it's going to come out that this was all an act, ala Colbert.

She really is an idiot who is only looking for attention.

But she's also kind of like Marge Schott, the crazy old lady who used to own the Cincinnati Reds. She would make some kind of out-there statement and get in trouble with MLB. Then when they would let her off probation, the media would come along and ask her questions until she said something stupid again. It was kind of pathetic, how they would bait her, and then when she would give in and make a fool of herself they would stand up and shout "Hey look at what Marge just said!" There was really no reason for them to do it, other than to draw atention to themselves as much as to Marge Schott.

I see some of that here in this interview. It took him awhile, but he finally got her to say something stupid.

Good ol' Mann Coulter. Just when he starts to slip into obscurity, he comes up with yet another outrageous statement to top the previous one to get his name back in the papers. I just can't believe the rest of the media hasn't gotten a clue yet.

Ann's so 15 minutes ago. Michelle Malkin is an order of magnitude smarter and hotter.

I sat through 1:30 of that excruciatingly boring interview, and had to turn it off- what did she say?

Posted by Big Sven | October 14, 2007 10:29 PM

Her bony shoulders make me want fried chicken for lunch. I'll pretend I'm eating her...

Posted by It's Mark Mitchell | October 15, 2007 8:00 AM

that was a boring video, despite it being so short and the thinly-veiled attempts to bait here.

she might not have chosen her words well, but don't most religions think they are the perfect religion? even some lines of judiasm? and don't most atheists think they are more perfect than those with a religious crutch?

to believe something in many cases is also to not-believe something else. to say, when questioned, that yes you belive what you think is the right way should not be a very surprising revelation.

NEWS FLASH: people who think they are right think other's are wrong!

unless i'm missing something....

ignore. attention whore. she'd just shrivel up and die without the left's and center's outrage.

Posted by ellarosa | October 15, 2007 9:13 AM

Okay, seriously, if I were a Republican, I would have to be convinced that she was a plant, someone the DNC was secretly paying to make the GOP look worse. W got the GOP 90% of Hasidim vote, and Coulter just sent them back to the Dems for good.

I'm on a 20-odd-inch cinema display and that hyphened shit don't even fit on my screen. firefox

@18: Yes, you are missing something. She's a fucking Nazi.

Posted by J.R. | October 15, 2007 9:39 AM

@22 and this is new?

Posted by infrequent | October 15, 2007 9:43 AM

The Hasidim vote is a vote for justice, law and truth. Judaism is the world's only true religion, and I believe the war in Iraq will in the end help Israel. I was originally for the war, but I have changed my mind now it is no longer fashionable to be pro-war. But that doesn't mean I'm going to protest the war or anything.

I watched the video again and as a Jew I am deeply offended that this anti-semitic video is being played on the internet. Jews already are the most perfect people on this planet. Israel is a nation of justice and law.

Islam and Christianity are religions of ignorance and hatred, only Judaism is the perfect religion with the Torah as the crown jewel of our perfection. I am glad The Stranger is so pro-Jewish and helps the AntiDefamation league to spot this kind of hate speech in the media and protest against it. Ann Coulter should have her career ruined. No one should even be allowed to think thoughts like she does, anti-semitic thoughts should be illegal.

@24,25: Thanks for making #18's point.

Please stop posting Issur.

I wonder what she's like in bed...

Posted by BillyBob | October 15, 2007 11:52 PM

perhaps converting to Mormon faith would be
the way for Christianity to get its perfection

Posted by jk | October 16, 2007 11:42 PM

C'mon, people...Coulter's got a BOOK TO SELL. Stop making it so complicated, already. You think Colbert's presidential bid is anything but a gimmick before his signing tour, either?
